My grandchildren enjoyed it very much so did me and my partner. Very handy to everything and not far to walk to the beach. I would recommend this accommodation. Handy to buses which went to malls and the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Wet N Wildand a few other places.

Just spent 7 VERY enjoyable days here. Having read some of the negative reviews we were a little concerned as to what we might encounter, but found our unit (on the 3rd floor overlooking the river) to be totally adequate for our needs - very clean and comfortable with lovely bed linen. There is some road noise from this side... More

I am not usually a person to write reviews but it has to be said. The rooms.... yuck. Dirty and old but the main point being dirty. Only... More

The location was fantastic, for walking to Surfers paradise and close to bus routes. The swimming pool complex was fantastic. The staff were very helpful. The rooms & linen was clean. The rooms could do with a bit of TLC but was priced accordingly. Great value for money and the grounds were well kept and it was quiet. The weather... More

Booked for us by Expedia, we had never stayed at Paradise Island Resort before. Beautiful, older apartments, however we were upgraded to one that had been recently renovated. So we saw the old and the new (preferring the new). A great view of the island waterway, and the pool and spa from our balcony. Unfortunately the restaurant is now closed,... More
