Stayed one night over August and got my entire deposit taken from me. When I enquired as to why I was told by the Duty Manager that they have me on camera being a menace around the hotel. I told her impossible, you have the wrong person. Asked if she could please show me some kind of evidence (photos, videos...

Noisy parties,expected to walk up 10 floors when the lifts were not working.Lights went out while walking up these flights of stairs (pitch black)Not offered refund or at least reduced rates on room.(Older guest's could have had a heart attack walking up 10 flights in the dark.)

We booked a studio apartment for four nights....the location was great but the apartment was terrible. Beds were different sizes when we went to put them together...stains on mattress protectors...side table had glass broken and lamp was sitting on the floor...fridge was old and we couldn't use freezer as there was no door and 10cms of ice hanging out of...

Nice resort. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I originally booked the wrong dates and they let me change them free of charge without any dramas. If you're on a bit of a budget, this place is ideal as it has everything you need in the rooms and is close to public transport - was a little noisy with...

Booked the 2 bedroom suite, which was on the 13th floor. Great views of the beach and sunset. It was a bit of a weird set up, as it was more of a one bedroom apartment with a connecting studio. But having 5 girls staying, the 2 bathrooms was a plus! The rollaway bed was AWFUL and I ended up...

The 1 bedroom, 13th floor apartment was a great home away from home for our 2 week Gold Coast getaway. There were a couple of minor cleaning issues when we first got there, but a simple call down to reception saw the problem rectified immediately. We interacted with the staff quite a bit during our stay & found them to...

The Ipanema is a 15 minute walk south of Surfers. Checking in and parking are all fairly easily taken care of. The room itself was pretty basic as can be seen from the photo's. One disappointing thing is that a previous occupant wasn't able to complete their stay without smoking in the room. The cleaners must have missed the plastic...
