We stayed at Paradise Island Resort for 8 nights. There are things you should know about this resort. Each room is privately owned. Some of the owners maintain the rooms well and some of them are just average. Your room is not serviced daily, however if you stay more then 7 nights they will service it once for you. You... More

Both of us ladies, so we wanted twin beds, we didn't mind sharing a room, so we ordered a 1 bedroom suite on the second floor. We... More

It is not a new resort and most rooms have never been renovated by the owners and are shabby and dirty. Unfortunately it is pot luck what you get and until you open the door on arrival you will not know what... More

The resort was booked for us by Expedia and we had no idea what it would be like. When we arrived we'd been double booked. Reception gave us two sets of keys and told us to take a look at both rooms and choose. We chose the newly refurbished self contained unit on the lower floor with the pool and... More

We have just spent 7 nights in a garden view apartment - 3rd floor. We were so worried after reading the reviews, but found our apartment to be everything we needed, it was clean and tidy, smelt clean too. Pool, spa and gym were great and were well used by us. The apartment wasn't the most modern and was a... More

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

Just spent a week in the two bedroom apartment 8A & 8B and we were very happy. This resort is perfectly located to get everywhere on foot or bus. Great for a family holiday for Nan, Mum, Dad & 3 year old. The pool is great and we all loved the heated spa. Mr3 had a great time feeding the... More
