We have decided to fly to Gold Coast specifically Surfers Paradise on the June long weekend for 4 days 3 nights & do some theme parks, so excited!

Wondering if anyone has recommendations for apartments (we want 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms).

TIA

I've stayed at Circle on Cavill, Mantra Bel Air and Paradise Centre Apartments and would recommend them all.

Mantra Bel Air - Is a bit further out, opposite Pacific Fair, Shuttle to theme parks right outside, beach about a block away

Circie on Cavill - Very nice, a bit more pricy, Shuttle to theme parks across the road, not as close to the beach as the other two

Paradise Centre - Nice, middle range, directly on top of shopping centre and Hard Rock, Shuttle to theme park across the road, Beach less than a block away

All were 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (they had 3 bedrooms available as well) with kitchen and laundry

We stayed in

They are opposite a surf club if you want a drink or a meal, about 10 minutes walk to the heart of everything. They were great. Close to everything without haveing drunks on the street when you sit on the balcony. They have indoor and outdoor pool, spa, sauna, bbq and tennis courts. Fully self contained with an equipped kitchen so you don't have to eat out all the time.

If Surfers isn't essential, try out The Village in Burleigh  http://www.thevillageatburleigh.com/

We stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse, and it was lovely!!!  but there are quite a few options available, had great pool and BBQ area, and full working kitchen, so took some of the sting out of the food bills lol  also with children Burleigh is more kid friendly and still along the main stretch of beachs.

If you wanted to be up that end of the coast, I personally would go for Broadbeach instead of Surfers. It is just a little bit nicer IMO. There are plenty of apartments which are just a short walk to the mall, it has a nice beach with a great surf club and I nice park too. I would recommend Air and Metricon apartments.

Thanks everyone!
I will check all of those out.

Anyone heard of or stayed at Chevron Renaissance? It's everywhere I look on Stayz.

Also if you had to pick 2 of the theme parks, which ones & why?

I prefer Broadbeach to Surfers Paradise, as like a few previous posters.

My 2 favourite theme parks are Movieworld and Sea World.  You could get them both (plus Wet n Wild) on a VIP pass, I think they're currently $89.

I would go for movie world and Dreamworld. I haven't been to sea world for a while though.

As for Theme Parks my picks are Movie World & Dreamworld. Sea World is great if you have under 5's who can't do many rides. Wet & Wild is better for older kids that can swim without (or minimal) supervision to make the most of the attractions there.

I too find Broadbeach a much nicer place to stay. We like The Wave Resort. Have also stayed at the Marrakesh which is half way between Surfers & Broadbeach.

If your on a budget, Victoria Square Gardens is a good choice & in a great location too.

We've stayed at the Chevron twice. Apartments are ok, not super fancy but fine. The pool is a big hit though, its quite big and has a manmade beach. They also have an indoor heated pool. Its on top of coles, bakers delight and lots of restaurants so that in itself is very handy.

Broadbeach is nice - we've stayed at a few different ones, Diamond Beach (great pool) and Bel Air (pool too cold) and recently another but I can't think of the name. We've also stayed at Turtle Beach resort too, its on the highway which is a bit of a bummer but it has great facilities for kids and the apartments were a good size.

Thanks everyone. Particularly Littlemumma, because I've ended up booking the Chevron Renaissance due to the facilities & location looking very suitable for our stay.

sophiasmum - I don't think you'll be disappointed with Chevron, I mean we went back so that is saying something for us. Also too, the apartments are good size as well (forgot to mention that). Also downstairs is good sushi too, a chemist and lolly shop and they  have a great pizza shop in the restaurant area. One thing I will mention is that the doors on the balconies don't have a key lock (which worried me). We asked the handyman to come up and he put a cable tie around the doors. It meant we couldn't open them at all but didn't both us for the peace of mind with littles ones.

Chevron are great, close to public transport and all the eating places and Coles,is downstairs, only 3 minsmto the beach.

Every angle will have a great view.

Public transport wise, Circle on Cavil & Cheveron Renaissance are in the best location! \

Q1 apartments are a really good size as well, although at the upper end of the budget.

Also look at Main Beach for apartments as well - it's a bit quieter than Surfers & Broadbeach.

If you want to go to the theme parks, check out online for the VIP passes which will get you unlimited entry to seaworld, wet 'n'wild & movie world. Also Dream World do their own version of this as well.

If you intend to visit more than one, these really offer the best value for money.

Silver shore is a nice place, although its not that close to Q1 and the other is was cheap and nice, i found most of hotels on Travel finder

its has awesome deals from all the hotels on the gold coast ad you can compare them to other apartments , i suggest you look here, maybe the deal youre after.

as i have just book my next hoilday on here too, so i thought i'd recommend it original.gif good luck
