My wife and I were very concerned about staying at paradise island after reading some of the reviews on this site. We were seriously considering cancelling and staying somewhere else. 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

The rooms were nice & very clean. Our apartment was semi modern. The view of the river was beautiful. The swimming pool was very spacious &... 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

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

Well, where to start. The best part was the great location and nice balcony. The rest hmmmm not so great. I stayed there a week ago for 7 nights with my good friend. 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

All rooms in this resort are privately owned, The owners can rent the rooms through the Resort management. 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.
