Choose your style of Surfers Paradise hotel
One soaring beachfront hotel after another characterises Surfers Paradise accommodation, with a variety of hotels and resorts in between. The big appeal of the 5-star hotels is not just the sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and the luxurious suites and rooms, but the close proximity to the beach (and nightlife). Surfers Paradise is also hugely popular with families, and this bustling patch of the Gold Coast is brimming with self-contained holiday units and serviced apartments. This style of accommodation gives you the chance to enjoy a quality, family beach holiday without the added costs that come with 24-hour reception or room service.

Pretty much any time is a great time to stay at Surfers Paradise, except during Schoolies Week – unless, of course, you’re a Schoolie.
