San Mateo on Broadbeach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 3 nights. Room was clean. This isn’t a serviced apartment but I expected more than less than half a roll of toilet paper. We were given the bottom floor apartment and found it very noisy. They seemed to clean and water the plants directly in front of our apartment before 8am, not pleasant when you are on holidays. 5 min walk to the beach and close to cafes and about 20 min walk to Oasis. Overall it was average but handy to everything.

San Mateo is a beautiful complex literally less than a minute walk from the beach. The entire place is kept spotless and the staff, in particular the managers, Shara and Ben are lovely and make you feel at home. The rooms are well sized as is the apartment and you have everything you could need to make yourself comfortable. We didn't want to leave!! Really lovely apartments.

Easy place to stay has everything we needed, staff we very accomodating and it was very secure apartment. Apartment had great cooling, big bedroom, decent bathroom and living room. Only problem is not many options in walking distance for dinner so u need a car.

Stayed here over many years and this year would be the best,recently renovated unit and a good night sleep. Good location and close to good restaurants and the beach Well done to the new management team Ben and Shara

We have stayed at the San Mateo many times over the past 10 years and noticed that the standard over the last three years dropping but arrived this year to a very much improved accommodation. Everything was clean and had recently been updated the managers Ben and Shara were extremely pleasant and helpful and available for information during the day. We will definitely be recommending this accommodation to our family and friends 10 out 10 Lyn Warwick

My wife and I were very happy with our stay at San Mateo. The location is excellent, very close to the beach and the apartment (one bedroom) was spacious with good views of the sea and plenty of sun. These two features were important to us. The cleaning staff were very good and helpful, and we were impressed with the managers who we found to be very responsive.We rate San Mateo highly and have no hesitation in recommending it to other travelers. We stayed 23 days.

San Mateo was recommended by our parents who stay for a month each winter. We stayed in the penthouse . So spacious, great views of the beach and night lights and whales and dolphins cruising bye😀 our apartment was so beautiful and clean and provided us with everything we needed to cook each night. The pool and spa were so beautiful to relax in after getting home from the theme parks. The beautiful beach is a 3 minute walk. Bowling club, eating places and supermarkets a few minutes away. Shara and Ben were so lovely, welcoming and helpful😀our 10 year old cried as we drove out to fly home as she said she had the the best time ever x we did you could not fault San Mateo and Shara and ben

When you walk into the property you can't help but notice how well maintained the gardens are. Then walk past a pool that is clean and inviting. When I checked in the owners were there to greet you with a friendly smile they are most helpfully as well.When entering the room you can't help but notice how clean the room was. Then stepping out on the balcony with ocean views were amazing. Thanks San Mateo I will definitely us you again.

A nice fully self contained unit close to the lawn bowling club that offers nice meals. A short 10-15 min walk to the main restaurant strip and 2 mins to the beach, so very central. Rooms offered all the equipment and facilities you could want and a lovely balcony. If I had to be picky it would be the lack of an exhaust fan for the toilet/bathroom. Keeping a window open does expose you to the neighbours, so a wall mounted fan would allow showers without the mirrors being completely fogged up or toilet visits that didn't permeate throughout the entire unit. That would be the only drawback as the apartments boasts full Foxtel access, a comfortable bed and lounge suite and secure undercover parking. Free WIFI would be a big plus if that was included. I would stay there again!

The apartment was extremely clean, well-appointed and the bed was very comfy! We loved the immediate area and you could walk to the grocery stores and other shops. The beach was a couple of minutes walk away with a lovely boardwalk/promenade. We enjoyed having our meals on the patio and watching the colourful birds in the trees. The couple who manage San Mateo were very helpful if we had any questions. We hope to return in the near future!
