Top tips for finding the perfect Gold Coast hotel

  • If you enjoy walks along the beach and through the rainforest, we have the place just for you. Burleigh Surf Apartments is centrally located to some of the best walks on the Gold Coast. You can walk along the beach up to Burleigh Heads National Park, and when you get back you can relax in the hot tub, swim in the pool or have a game of pool.
  • For a hotel with a full kitchen in Southport, we recommend Aqualine Apartments as they have full apartment-style hotel rooms available; it’s essentially a home away from home with a very large pool.
  • When you’re wanting some time out to yourself whilst staying in Coolangatta, we recommend Crystal Beach Holiday Apartments as it has babysitting facilities, plus a pool with a view and a beach you can stroll along.
  • If you need a place to hang your surfboard for the night in Coolangatta then we recommend Komune, which is at the mouth of the best surfing beaches on the Gold Coast, such as Snapper Rocks. The hotel also has a lounge bar, so you can relax at the end of the day.
  • For Broadbeach accommodation centrally located for a shopping trip, we recommend South Pacific Plaza. Roughly only a 5min walk to The Oasis and about 10min to Pacific Fair, you can enjoy views from your balcony after you get back from a spot of shopping; they have sea, pool, garden or mountain views.

    With a list of facilities to ensure both adults and children of all ages enjoy their holiday, we recommend Paradise Resort Gold Coast. The resort is centrally located to some of the main Gold Coast attractions (if you can pull the kids away from the water park or the pool's water slide). It also has a coffee shop, restaurant, lounge bar and facilities in the rooms like a fridge and microwave.

  • I’m wanting a place in Surfers Paradise for me and my friends, where do you recommend?

    If you're looking to enjoy activities during the day as well as the nightlife then we recommend The Island Gold Coast. Located in the heart of Surfers Paradise with public transport at your doorstep, the hotel itself has its own rooftop nightclub, which is popular, and it also has a pool, restaurant and balcony in each room to enjoy city and mountain views.

  • Which accommodation in Broadbeach do you recommend for attending an event at The Convention and Exhibition Centre?

    When you're attending or participating in events, it can be a very tiring day so we suggest The Star Grand at The Star Gold Coast, as it has a linked walkway direct to centre. The hotel itself has a variety of in-house restaurants, plus bars, a pool and a spa; it also provides free parking for guests and 24 hour room service.

  • Are there any pet- and child-friendly accommodation options in Southport?

    It does not seem fair to take every family member but the dog on your holiday; with BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park in Southport, you can bring the whole family. Everyone will be happy too, as there is a water park for the kids, a pool and spa to relax in and plenty of places to go for a walk with the dog.
