Suntower Holiday Units
Reviewed 18 April 2017

Location is key here for this establishment. You're across the road from the beautiful beach, and you literally fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. It's a quiet unit complex, with secure parking. Other guests are quiet, you barely hear anybody moving about! They're 10mins walk from the night precinct as well as the main strip of Surfers.

We had a two bedroom unit that had a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom w/ dryer and laundry. The unit we had was quiet dated unfortunately, and needed a serious refurbishment to it. The lamp shades and bedroom furniture was so dated that it was very dusty and stained. The window had no security screens, so try to keep children away, as it's a long fall if they happen to get out! The sliding door to the balcony also needed some serious WD-40, as sliding the glass was very tough. It would get stuck half way through sliding, and it seemed to have corroded at the tracks from all the sea salt in the area being so close to the beach. But other than that, we had access to foxtel in the unit. We had a comfy double bed, with extra pillows if needed. Sheets and towels were clean, and the bathroom looked like it had gone through a recent renovation!

What makes this place a little better than others is the homely and friendly feeling you get. The owners are very friendly. Even with the difficulty of checking in late, they were able to help without hesitation when Reception was already closed. We enjoyed our stay here, it was great being so close to everything at a good price :)

Hi There,
We do appreciate your detailed review of Suntower. We agree that some of the units are a little `tired` and are working with owners to try to get them freshened up. The balcony door issue is a constant problem. Once we are informed, we do have a regular tradesperson who comes to replace the rollers on the bottom of the doors.
Thank you also for commenting on positives of staying at Suntower...value for money, location and the warm and friendly atmosphere.
We do hope you stay with us next time you visit the GC.
Warm Regards
Lesley

Great location,Excellent apartment.Hosts Lesley and Steve are great and endeavour to help make your holiday special. Have been visiting Surfers for 30 years and rate Suntower as the best value accommodation I have had over this time.

Room Tip: Beachfront is great,but ocean view is not far behind and cost wise possibly the better option.

Perfect place if you don't want to spend too much but want to stay on the beachfront. Wake up and walk across the road to the gorgeous beach. Basic but clean accommodation. Friendly reception. Interior is not flash but you are not at these apartments for that - it's the location and value that are the selling points.

Hi Roaming_Kiwi,
Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are working on, with owners co-operation, painting, and a few other things to freshen up the interiors of some apartments. When you come back I`m sure you will notice the improvement.
You are right, we are clean, comfortable, affordable and friendly accommodation :)
See you next time you visit the GC.
Regards
Lesley

The location is great -- steps away from the Surfer's Paradise beach, and varieties of shops and eating places. My overseas relatives are astonished by the stunning ocean view as soon as they stepped into the room. We stayed for 6 nights, and apart from the theme parks, we sometimes visited the beach twice a day, and the shops too! It is just so convenient and the kids love it! The rooms don't have air-con, but that doesn't bother us at all, as the breezes and fans are enough to cool us down. The service is great when we had some problems with the electrical appliances. There is complete set of kitchen utensil and laundry equipment. The service desk helps with printing boarding passes and theme park tickets. The outdoor car park is a little bit narrow for a mini-van to do 3-point turn but we managed it-take it as a learning curve. The mattress is a bit too soft for my back but all turned out well. Overall, it is a million dollar view for a bargain price!

We got a sea facing unit (the ones at the front end) - great views and great location. Walking distance to so much in Surfers Paradise - Cavill avenue, King Tutts putt put, beaches and restaurants. The units may be basic and look a little "old" but everything worked fine, beds were comfortable, and the sea breezes and ceiling fans kept the unit cool. We had a great balcony for people watching or to watch the sun (or moon) rise over the sea. Staff were friendly too. Will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for your review of Suntower. We do have `the best` location. Easy walking distance to everything in Surfers Paradise and don`t forget the views... they are fantastic from all the apartments.
The building is a little on the `senior` side but we do like to think that we are great value for your dollar if travelling on a budget. The apartments are spotlessly clean and comfortable, what more do you need.
Once again we do thank you for taking time out of your day to post your review and will look forward to welcoming you back to Suntower.
Warm Regards
Lesley
