The apartment was incredibly dated and in poor state of repair. The TV was tiny and had to be moved and jiggled to make it work.
The shower in the bathroom did not work well enough to actually be used - possibly full of lime scale? The aircon didn't work and neither did the washing machine.
If you used the toilet in the bathroom you were pinned between the washing machine and the wall.
The lounge room wall was entirely mirrored, except for the huge rusty patches all over it.
The best part of the complex was the pool - until the jobsworth security guard came around at about 8pm, lied about there being bylaws regarding drinking alcohol around the pool and kicked everyone out of the pool. Admittedly we had approx 15-20 people in the pool area and it was quite noisy. We were never asked to quieten down - we were simply kicked out. The security guard said his company looks after 300 Gold Coast sites and he would make sure we were banned from all of those sites too!
To cap it off he went around and closed all of the stairwell doors, intentionally locking out other members of our party and then had the nerve to say she had to pay the $50 lockout fee.

Absolute joke.

The apartment was very clean and had everything in that we needed including a good size balcony where we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine after a very stressful day moving house. The staff were always extremely helpful and the environment was lovely with plenty of take away places nearby- but with good facilities in the apartment it is easy to cook something if you prefer - tea and coffee provided. This apartment is very good value and we would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the water, it makes a difference

My wife and I recently stayed here for a week and it was a nightmare. The apartment itself was located on the ground floor with a balcony facing South towards the swimming pools. There was a noisy little dog in a nearby unit that just barked and barked and barked, waking us up during the night on several occasions. There was a BBQ facility not too far away from our apartment and most evenings noisy drunks were partying there and the noises caused the paper thin walls to vibrate late into the night. As for the paper thin walls, the walls are so thin we could hear people in neighboring units peeing, pooping, farting, swearing and doing other X rated things. Keep your voice down if you don't want your conversation to be heard through your wall by the neighbor here! Doors would open and slam shut at night causing the walls to vibrate. Some units were playing loud music until the early hours of the morning, and other units would start their loud music early in the morning. The swimming pool was okay but a few days into our stay we noticed a poo floating in the pool and that was our last trip into the pool - we reported that to management and they removed it straight away. The only other thing management did was act like fun police for the pool area and warn kids who dived into the pool and just did other things that kids do. As far as handling complaints, management was useless. Management did nothing about the barking dog and did nothing about the loud music at night. Management also does nothing about people who smoke in common areas despite smoking in common areas being prohibited - management does however provide ash trays in common areas for smokers to use! The icing on the cake was when we saw a drunk guy staying on a top floor apartment on the other side urinate over his balcony and onto the units below - disgusting! Anyway, this place served its main purpose as we stayed here to be close to friends who live in nearby Runaway Bay. Other than that, the whole week was a nightmare and we would advise anybody thinking of staying here to avoid this place like the plague.

Pelican Cove Apartments is a pleasant place of tranquility - the accommodations and facilities are great and well looked after. The position is also close to walking tracks and waterways for the fishing or water sport enthusiast. Shopping center's are within a short drive 3 minute drive. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Was an enjoyable stay and definitely a place to return to.

Room Tip: Seek a room looking over the garden and pool area
