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.
