Meriton Boardbeach Apartment Review



Meriton Boardbeach

Heading to Gold Coast for holidays and have not settled on accommodation?



During our holidays in Gold Coast , we decided to opt for an apartment instead of a hotel. We have a total of 8 people travelling together and we wanted a place where everyone could stay together. A 3 bedroom apartment was the ideal choice for us. This is a VERY belated post, but it should come in handy for the holidays!

Since we had positive experiences with Meriton Services Apartments during our stay in Sydney, we decided to give this brand another shot. We managed to snag a room at a generous discount during their online promotion and stayed there for 7 nights for less than Aud 300 per night.

Location
Entrance
Located at the heart of Boardbeach, Meriton Boardbeach sits just across Jupiter's Casino. The property sits about 500m from the nearest beach. Eateries are found within walking distance with Oasis Shopping center a stone throw away. The bigger Pacific Fair is just adjacent across the road. Surfers Paradise is a 15 min car ride away, so if your intention is to be at the heart of Surfers Paradise, Mertion would not be an option. However if you are driving, it will be quite easy to shuttle too and fro.

Facilities

The apartment boost an outdoor and indoor pool. Sauna, spa and gym are on site too.

Head outdoors and you can find a row of restaurants on the property. Do note that the restaurants are pricey compared to what you can find around the vicinity. 7 Eleven is also on the same property for those who need 24 hours access to food.

If you need yo travel far and you do not have a car, there are bikes for rent too.

The Room
Living room
The best part about Meriton Boardbeach would be the rooms. There are 405 apartments in this property. The apartments range from classic studios to Ocean Suites with 3 bedrooms. The suites comes with gourmet kitchen with spacious living and dining area.

In case you are wondering , Wifi is provided with a daily cap. Wifi is a hit and go affair, sometimes it is strong and other times it is hard to connect.
Gourmet kitchen
Our 3 bedroom comes with one master suite and 2 bedrooms that can fit a king size or 2 single beds.

Bathroom amenities are provided and the rooms are clean on a daily basis.

The rooms itself are quite new and clean. We had no issue with the rooms we had.


If you are staying for a longer period and do not want to bring too much clothes, laundry can be done in the apartment with provided washer and dryer.

Lastly , try dining outside the outdoor balcony. The 3 bedroom ocean suites faces the sea, so breakfast in the morning at the balcony is a must.

For vacations in Australia, we tend to favour apartments over rooms. Firstly, it provides more space. Secondly for families with kids, you can keep everyone under one roof. Lastly it is a less expensive option compared to booking 2 hotel rooms.

Ps : If you ask nicely, you might even get free parking throughout your stay.
