The positive: Great location on the beach, fantastic views, pay tv, spacious unit, good lounge and kitchen. Not a fabric lounge which is great in units. Great spa in the room. The pool is DEEP! So take a floatie for your kids and yourself unless you are 6 foot tall. It is

We stayed at this resort for a short holiday with family who were visiting from Sydney. The amenities at the resort and in our Penthouse suite were excellent with outstanding views from all the balconies of the beautiful Pacific Ocean and what must be one of the longest expanses

After spending 2 nights at Pelican Sands during our long Australia vacation, I recommend this place 100%. It was comfortable, clean, convenient, and quiet. It was nice to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for the 3 of us. Even though it rained most of the time, we thoroughly

The location is great for a young family, very quiet beach, the flagged areas are a 10 minute walk either North or South. There is a little convenience store 2 doors down which has most things you would need. If looking for a breakfast or dinner out you would need to head

Hi, Can't help with the unit availability part of your question but I do know the complex has a decent sized covered BBQ area at ground level with ocean views which can cater for a fair sized group. You would probably have to get approval from the onsite managers about a birthday party as the BBQ area is very close to the pool and some lower level units so I am guessing they would require you to just keep it a bit under control for noise etc. We were just there for New Years Eve and it was good. The Managers are decent folk so it would be worth contacting them and discussing what you want to do. The dates you are asking for will have you leaving the day the school holidays start so that may work in your favor as at school holidays the place is very popular and nearly always full. Good Luck with your search.

"All floors would have great ocean views, but if you don't mind heights, the higher the better."
"Ask for details of the room you're getting to see if it's been updated!"
"Consider being up a bit higher, to minimise nearby road noise and maximise the view."
"Try an get a unit on either end of the building rather than in the middle as there is much better airflow- especially in the hot weather."
"Noisy location due to proximity to Coolangatta airport and Gold Coast highway."
