Affordable Accommodation in Prime Surfers Paradise Location

Right Along the Nerang River

The Vibe Hotel Gold Coast sits between the Gold Coast Highway on the banks of the Nerang River. With its proximity to the ocean, guests can enjoy views of the city, the river, or the ocean and walking to the beach is a simple task. Nearby attractions include Draculas Haunted House and Infinity House. Of course it's also only 20 minutes from Warner Bros. Movie World and Dreamworld, Australia's largest theme park.

Eat, Swim, and Relax at the Vibe

Breakfast and dinner is available at the on-site Curve Cafe, while room service is available 24 hours a day, every day. Head to the outdoor pool to relax while enjoying drinks from the poolside bar or work up a sweat in the small on-site gym. Just a 7-minute walk from the hotel is the beach, right on the other side of The Esplanade.

This is one of the best beaches in the world and though it can get crowded, the water is warm in summer and the beach clean. If you want to avoid the crowds, head to areas further from the lifeguards. Note however that to stay safe, you'll want to swim between the flags to make sure the lifeguards will see you if you run into any trouble.

Budget Rooms With Gorgeous Views

Rooms at the Vibe Hotel Gold Coast range from a guest room with king or two singles, to a deluxe king suite that includes a kitchenette with refrigerator, oven, and cooktop and a separate bedroom and living room. Views range from city to river to ocean or partial ocean and all rooms include a balcony. Room amenities include flat screen TV, tea and coffee, iPod docking station, in-room safe, and hair dryer.

The Bottom Line

With prices for the Vibe Hotel Gold Coast being less than other nearby hotels, and its central location, many guests feel it's a great value. A big complaint for many was the lack of free Wi-Fi, costing $11 for one hour and $22 for a day. Get a western facing room to avoid sounds from the Gold Coast Highway and view beautiful sunsets at night over the Nerang River. Note also that depending on the time of year, you might run into groups staying at the hotel for Schoolies, a celebration held in late November and early December for recent high school grads.
