Thought I would write a summary of a 4 night stay we had here last week. The apartments are around a 5 minute drive from the Gold Coast airport. We were staying with another couple so we opted for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment
Really enjoyed our stay here
1/ Check-in was no problem-issued 2 sets of keys/lift fobs. Need the fobs to access the carpark & the lifts. There are only 2 lifts but we didn't encounter any long waits. The lifts are a very quick ride.
2/ Room was well laid out for 2 couples. Big apartment overall, both bedrooms had a bathroom and good soundproofing within the apartment. The room was in good repair overall and the beds were really comfortable. Note there is only hanging space in one of the bedrooms. It was very handy to have such a large fridge. We did not use the cooking facilities. While they advise at the time of booking that you are only issued a starter pack, it seems pretty short sighted to only supply 1 lot of machine dishwasher & 1 lot of hand dishwashing liquid-then expect you to leave the apartment all clean. There were a couple of maintenance issues that we advised on the departing guests form.
3/ Location-top spot on the quieter end of the Gold Coast that suited us fine. Plenty of food outlets & variety of food within easy walking distance. Great facilities straight across the road for walking/cycling/surfing or just relaxing. On the Sunday we were there the markets were on. With the apartment doors (full height glass sliders) closed there was no problem with traffic or pedestrian noise. It was very smoky from the bushfires when we were there but the balconies have great views & we spotted plenty of whales while sitting on the balcony
4/ The allocated underground parking spot was fine & easy to locate.
5/ Pool area-despite what we had read the pool was not heated while we were there. The presence of plenty of toddlers in it didn't make the spa an attractive proposition for us. The
5/ Checkout-we left before the desk was opened. There is a dedicated spot to leave the keys-get your car out first

Executive Lounge is a nice area but we didn't use it

We love Reflections & have been many times to stay there. We nearly always stay in the other tower which is called Reflections on the Sea. This is a much nicer property. Stayed in Tower 2 once when the 'on the Sea' was booked out. Would never stay there again as Reflections on the Sea is so much nicer. If you have a chance to go back, try Reflections on the Sea, you will not be disappointed.

Interesting-what are the standout differences?. The other couple we stayed with this time have also stayed in various rooms in both towers. They weren't thinking one tower was particularly better than the other but they did comment about the different layouts within the 2 bedroom category-the room we had was pretty good but both bedrooms were on the same side of the main living area. Then again both bedrooms had great ocean views

We always felt the rooms were slightly larger as well as the balconies. They seemed to be nicer as well. I recall mentioning to the ladies at the front desk after our 1 week at Tower 2 that the other building was nicer & she agreed & told me that many people tell her that. We have since found if we decide last minute to head up to Qld we can usually get into Tower 2 but not 'On the Sea'. It seems to be more popular & also rates better on trip advisor. I also believe there are more apartments in Tower 2 but as they are similar size overall, Tower 2 seems to have been mainly built for investors with more units available. Probably more owners living in 'On the Sea' as well. We have stayed in 'On the Sea' 4 or 5 times, by ourselves & with family members using 1, 2 & 3 bedroom units. If you get back there, try it out & see what you think, but we will not stay in Tower 2 again.
