Got in today and can say I am extremely happy with what I paid for! My room was very modern and up to date, had everything I needed oven/stove/large fridge/washing machine! Bathroom was acceptional! Went for a walk around the place and swam in the pool and it's gorgeous! Like a tropical resort! I have no idea why people are... More

We were appalled at our room. It was a hotel studio. I've stayed in better backpackers. There was no telephone to call down and ask for an extra pillow as the ones we were given were so thin you could see through them. The furniture had stains on them, the curtains had holes in them, the lamp had no bulb... More

This would have to be the worst place I have ever stayed. Rooms are filthy, mattresses are covered in stains, shower didn't work properly, dryer didn't work at all. Walking through the hotel makes you feel like you are in a hospital. Furniture is old and dated. Ceiling fan was loose and made a loud noise when turned on, air... More

The Paradise Island Resort was centrally located in Surfers. Not far from the G-Link tram and bus stops. Good, average priced resort. a lot of the apartments had permanent residents. the only problem with the resort was there seemed to be a lot of buses and cars coming and going at all times of the night and day. good pool...

We had an excellent stay here, the room was adequate and with enough room for us and our 3 boys, the location was great and based on what we paid... More

We only booked on for one night .... Thank goodness. This place is in bad need of refurbishment. Did not look clean even as we were walking through the hallways. When we got into our room it was even worse. Room had a musty smell, carpet looked grimy and the bathroom floor was like it was covered in a layer... More
