Perfect place to stay to get a taste of the Gold Coast. We initially only had one week booked with Cam and Elaine at Surfer’s Beach Resort 2 but ended up spending the majority of our trip there! The resort itself is beautiful and the rooms that we stayed in were very, very well laid out and had everything we needed for our stay. We felt very much at home from the first day we arrived and were very sad when we finally had to head home. The location of the resort is absolutely perfect, roughly a minutes walk from the coastline which stretches all the way down the gold coast. The walks here along the coast are breathtaking and it seems that no matter which direction you head in, there is plenty to do. About 15 minutes away in one direction walking is Surfers Paradise, which is a tourist hotspot. Lots of things to do here, food, shopping, markets and lots of events going on. Keep walking and you’ll end up in Main Beach, which has some amazing sights. About 10 minutes in the opposite direction is Oasis shopping centre, which was where we did most of our grocery shopping at the Woolworths there. A little further and you end up at Pacific Fair shopping centre which is massive and has over 300 stores I believe, as well as restaurants and cinemas. Anyone looking to fit a lot of things into a short space of time or even stretched over a longer period will find lots and lots to do here. Overall, surfers beach resort 2 was the best place we stayed in the Gold Coast, very clean, very comfortable and Cam and Elaine were perfect hosts, going above and beyond to help us with any of our requests.
