Ted B TripAdvisor review
From the outside the 'C Bargara' building looks fabulous. The apartment we had was dated, rundown, poorly maintained & looked cheap like a 2 star motel. Walls marked, paint chipped & peeling and very basic facilities. There are much better options elsewhere for less money.
Hi Ted, Thanks for taking the time to provide a review albeit one that we feel is not realistic of the product offering as can be seen in all other reviews. On departure no concerns were raised about anything? I’m unsure how a fully equipped self contained apartment is dated. The Apartment has a matching dark timber dining and TV set, 2 black three seater lounges, photos from around bargara and others to provide the Beachy feel. Unfortunately with the movements of guests including families along the hallway with bags or simply bumping with a watch can leave marks on the paintwork, we clean these and in some light can look patchy. How often do we paint apartments? We are at a loss to understand how anything could look cheap and how we have very basic facilities? We have Free High Speed Unlimited Wifi which is second only to bed comfort for guests, we have the latest Business IQ Foxtel system that provides Free to Air, Foxtel, On Demand & Casting functionality. The kitchen has all the normal appliances you would need. What’s really disappointing is that you gave us a 3 out of 5 for service with no information as to why. We hope you enjoy staying at the other options you mention as clearly you have unusual expectations. It’s poor form from you to not have the decency to discuss any concerns with us whilst here. Overall your review is not reflective of our product, our service and standard.
Spacious and well located apartment

Ian C TripAdvisor review
We have stayed in these apartments a number of times. Once again we found the room spacious, comfortable and well located. We love the lap pool although someone with mobility problems may have difficulty entering and exiting. Our only negative on the apartments is in the kitchen/dining area. While the wine glasses provided is plentiful there were no two glasses that matched. The provision of cooking appliances is poor considering there is no bar b que provided. A small electric bar b que or frypan would be a welcome additions. We had occasion to use the oven and had to open the entrance and patio door due to the level of smoke generated.
Thanks for taking the time to provide a review, we appreciate all your feedback. We apologise that the glassware was a mismatch, this may have been a result of the previous stay being a multiple apartment booking for families that at times stock can move around, but we will look into that with Housekeeping. Given the free council BBQ’s provided just down on the foreshore a decision was made several years ago to not of a common area BBQ, risks such as gas and allergens were also a consideration. We will of course share the feedback about an electric frypan in addition to the frypan used on the hot plates. Great to hear that you enjoyed the stay, surrounds and facilities. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Another fabulous stay!!!

These apartments are beautifully presented, large, very spacious, well equipped and comfortable. We had apartment 408 this time right on the corner comes with 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and 2 underground carpark spaces. At night its super quite no racing cars or trucks to disturb the peace, the only thing you hear is the lapping waves. The views here are just lovely, there’s also a walking path from one end of the esplanade to the other, I would think 3 or 4 km, plenty of seating along the way if you just want to meander. The pool is pristine with comfy outdoor furniture, if you forget your swimming towel you can hire from the office for a small charge. The managers, Kylie and Dale can’t do enough to make your stay perfect. They are super friendly and very accommodating. The building and gardens are well maintained, its just a fantastic place. Can’t wait for our next stay in April.
Thanks for such an extensive review covering your stay and the location etc. we really appreciate you taking the time to complete the review and provide the welcome feedback. We look forward to speaking with you to arrange your next stay.
Better than expected!

My wife and I decided to head north for a short break and decided on Bargara Beach . No regrets we found Kylie and Dale at the grand Mercure to be the most accommodating host! We will definitely return, hopefully than later.

From arrival to departure an enjoyable time. Excellent apartment exceeded our expectations, clean and quiet. Did not expect a smart TVs to entertain us with the inclement weather but greatly appreciated it. Huge balcony to take in expansive views. Have stayed here before and will stay again.
Thanks for taking the time to provide a review we appreciate it. Great to welcome back return visitors and still provide the experience that we aspire to do at all times. Awesome to read the words Exceeded Expectations. We look forward to speaking with you directly to arrange your next experience with us.
