Gold, silver and bronze medals are dished out for Gold Coast hotels by Mike Whittington from Flight Centre Auckland following his Gold Coast holidays.
Gold medal: Mantra Circle on Cavill
This was the nicest hotel we stayed at on our holiday and a perfect one for families. It's in a prime location with shops including a supermarket right below. Leisure facilities onsite include a massive outdoor pool, indoor pool, gym and a small games area for kids.
The apartments are huge, very modern and clean. Our 2 bedroom apartment had amazing views of the city and river/hinterland, as well as 2 bathrooms and a spa bath.
Silver medal: Towers of Chevron
This Gold Coast resort is made up of 3 towers which are connected via the central pool, car park and walkways. All the rooms are of an excellent standard, with some having 2 or 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The 3 bedroom apartments had full kitchens and a nice sized living area with modern furnishings.
The hotel's outdoor area is one the largest on the Gold Coast, with a grassed area near the pool which is the central point of the hotel.
Bronze medal: Sea Temple
There's a true 5* quality to this resort. All rooms are spacious and feature modern furniture, with the 2 bedroom apartments having amazing city and ocean views. The outdoor pool area is surprisingly large considering it’s location right on Cavill and the Esplanade.
Dinner was more formal than many of the resorts, but was still brilliant quality with everyone thoroughly enjoying the meal.
