Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the second time we’ve stayed at zenith, it is such good value for money. Staying in a 2 bedroom and laundry and kitchen is much more comfortable with a toddler rather than a hotel room. Views of the ocean from every room, I’ve seen 9 whales in 3 days just from the balcony. It’s clean, neat and just need to pop down the Woolies (3 minute walk) and grab some basics and you’re right at home. Pool is clean and warm, perfect for winter stays.
The staff are super friendly and accommodating.

I go ever year in summer. You are across the road from the beach which gives you fantastic views of the ocean. Apartments are spacious and modern. You are right in the heart of surfers paradise and the proprietors ( Brien, shona, Fred and Cheryl ) are the friendliest people.

Stayed here a long time ago, shows it’s age now. Great location, very good front office managers, nice indoor pool, superb views. Downside the 2 bedroom apartment was tired, old fittings except for kitchen and high wind noise. Bed very hard and uncomfortable. Didn’t get to pool because of constant inclement weather. Gym very small, no exercise bike, strange access. I’m concerned with balcony safety aspects, in my opinion not up to current building codes.

We have stayed at Zenith a number of times due to the great location but our last stay ruined it for us. After checking out we received an amazingly rude email saying we had caused malicious damage and they had charged $80 in damages and quote “ we are very disappointed by the lack of respect shown to the property”
The apartment we left very clean, all dishes washed and put away, towels stacked in the bathtub, no rubbish….The malicious damage? A tiny hole in a cushion stitching, we had piled up all the cushions and not used. So we don’t think we caused this tiny little hole but if we did by accident was because the cushions are old.
So if you are staying here be very warned as they seem to wanting to grab extra cash and are very very rude.

We have stayed there twice in 6 months but will never stay there again. We were racially profiled, discriminated against accused of being demanding and intimidating all because we asked to check in an hour early. The manager Karen’s behaviour was absolutely disgusting to the point she showed no remorse nor was apologetic about her racially motivated comments, when I raised that with the site manager who had witnessed it, he refused to comment which clearly indicates he supports her views. They even refused to let us park in the basement until our apartment was ready although we have paid a $600 deposit. I do not recommend anyone stay there at all.

How can we describe perfection?..... Zenith Beach front apartments! So close to every thing needed on a break.. cafes, shops, beach, lots of walking too. Or sitting on verandahs overlooking the surf with a cuppa. Or sleeping...... Great facilities too, indoor and outdoor pools are most welcome. So we have zero problem in suggesting this as the best spot in town.

We travel alot and never have I ever come across Management so rude, our children went for a swim the pool being just outside the glass doors to the entrance and when they came back inside they were not completely dry and put a few water foot prints on the tiles.

The manager abused our children one of which is autistic and kicked them out side and told them not to come back in until they learnt to now be disobedient and be respectful.

When we went down to check as we could see them from our balcony and knew they were coming back and were taking a long time I found them outside shaking and crying.

When I approached the staff they became very rude and had no care in the world for what that had done to our kids.

I can't express enough don't stay here.

I had a horrible experience with Kevin that manages Zenith. I was in the lift with Kevin and unfortunately realised i didnt have my swipe card, I then asked him if he could swipe me out to get out of the building - he lambasted me for wasting his time. Isn't that what building managers are for ?
All I wanted was to get out of the building. He is a power freak. Beware.

Yes, our Zenith apartment had a split system unit that provided air-conditioning and heating.
Answer from daztar
Melbourne, Australia7 contributions2 helpful votes
No, these apartments aren't suitable for parties, because the noise travels easily and front doors to building are locked after 5.30pm.

Yes, I can recommend these apartments to young families, but supervision is required with the outdoor balcony.
