This hotel is just great and very well located. we walked to both Surfers paradise and Broad beach, although we had a rental car. the service people were very helpful and attentive, the rooms were clean, tidy and nicely designed and the pool and spa were just bonus. Our room had a brilliant view of the ocean and we were literally 2 min away from the beach.
my only issue was the low hot water pressure which in the shower. I never really could take a hot shower that I would like, while there.

This was my 2nd stay at Surf Parade Resort and I look forward to staying there again. Reception is excellent with very welcoming resort managers Cathy and James always there to guide and assist residents as required to make the most of their holiday. The grounds are manicured, with a large lap-style heated pool and spa in superb condition with sun loungers and a nearby changing room and toilet, a tennis court in superb condition, a large BBQ, and an adjacent mini gym. All on the West side of the Resort which gets most of the day's sunshine. There are 2 lifts available. The Apartments are spacious and comfortable with air-conditioning. There is a fully fitted open-plan kitchen with seated dining, a lounge area with 3 seater setee and chair, a flat screen TV with Foxtel and sliding doors to a large balcony with chairs and table. The bedroom off the lounge is comfortable with a unique way of watching the lounge TV in bed if that takes your fancy. The tiled bathroom off the bedroom has WC, sink with mirror, spa bath with shower, and a washing m/c and drier m/c with a folding drying frame and clothes pegs. Access to the Resort out of hours is secured by a key on the apartment keyring.Surf Parade Resort is well situated between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach and is only minutes walk from the absolutely awesome beach which has a lifesaver patrol station immediately on accessing the beach from Wharf Road. Surf Parade has a splendid bus service every 10 minutes North to Surfers Paradise, Main Beach, Palazzo Versace, and onwards to Seaworld, and South to Broadbeach, Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Robina Shopping Centre and Gold Coast Mainline Rail Station, and Skilled Park for Gold Coast Utd FC home games. There are Woolworths Supermarkets and other shops at both Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Adjacent to the main shopping mall in Broadbeach there is an excellent Food Court. In the shopping mall there is a good friendly Pub with super Pub food on offer. In Surfers Paradise there is Waxy's a friendly Irish Pub with excellent food and lots of special nights.Round the corner the Pub attached to (but separate from) the Crowne Plaza Hotel is excellent and also does different 'Chefs Specials Food' every evening. The Surf Clubs and Bowls Clubs also welcome visitors for excellent food and drinks. There are many other diners and restaurants for all tastes and coffee shops for enjoyment. Surf Parade Resort and the surrounding area is a very pleasant and relaxed place to stay and spend your time.

Room Tip: Hinterland/West view super with sun on balcony in afternoon, Limited Ocean/East view super with sun...

My Wife and I stayed at the Surf Parade Resort for 21 days in February.
The first thing to say is that we had a fantastic time during our stay The apartment we had was almost perfect, the only down side was we were on the first floor therefore had a restricted view, a point to remember is that all of the apartments are privately owned so if you book through a travel agent as we did (Mercury Travel) it is the luck of the draw as to your apartment level, with regards to the apartments they have everything you would need for a self catering base, located central to Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, on site they have Pool, Jacuzzi , Mini Gym, Sauna, Tennis Court, and Barbecue. Cathy the manager is more than helpful and will give you all the information on shopping, popular trips, and dining out. two places I would recommend to dine out at reasonable prices are, The Broadbeach Bowling Club 5min walk and the Northcliffe Surf Club 10min walk, you can sign into both clubs at each visit, if you are staying for any length of time it is worthwhile joining as a social member you then get further discounts on food and drink.
This was our first time in Australia and hopefully not our last, would we stay at the Surf Parade Resort again. Without a doubt YES

Room Tip: Contact the Management they may be able to help with floor level

I recently had the pleassure of staying 3 nights at this self contained apartment.
Found it to be excellent service and the room had great views of the ocean, the river and sky lights.
Beyond my expectation as it was also cheap accommodation.
Its well located between Surfers Paradise beach and Broadbeach and only a stroll down to the beach.
I Highly recommend it for anyone.
