Have stayed previously with my mother and came back again with my family. The 2 bedroom apartments are a good size not at all cramped. Perfect weather topped off a perfectly relaxing impromptu few days away. Thanks once again, we will be back.

We loved everything in this place. From the bedroom, kitchen, lounge and bathroom, everything was tidy and neat. We really wanted a decent and quiet place to stay because we have our little bubs with us and this place didn't disappoint us. The pool and spa was a great retreat and a good place to meet and chat other guests.... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review Misisleah. Sunset Island Resort is located in an ideal position.. close but not too close to the heart of Surfers Paradise, allowing our guests to relax and unwind in a peaceful environment. More

Beautiful pool and heated spa with BBQ area. We had a nice river view from our apartment which was on the 3rd level. Also... More

This is the second time we have stayed here for 7 days, and once again the staff and the self contained facilities (a proper full kitchenette!) have provided us with a great relaxing stay that is close to the main city of Surfers Paradise. Our most recent room was overlooking the pool area which was excellent as you would not... More

We recently spent 2 weeks here and found this to be an excellent location as it was close to Surfers, but far enough away to not hear all the noise. The one bedroom corner apartment on the 3rd floor was light and airy and we appreciated having a full kitchen for cooking when we didn't feel like going out. We... More

We had a great family holiday in a 2 bdrm aptmnt. The facilities were just right for us, able to make breakfast in the morning, head out for the day and walk to Surfers in the evening. Also great to have secure, free parking. We loved being able to walk to Cavill Ave and to the shops and supermarket. Unfortunately... More

We managed to get a booking for 7 nights here at short notice, and really enjoyed it. The units are spacious, quite modern and well equipped with free car parking underneath. The managers are lovely people ( I guess they would be as they are originally from New Zealand!!!). Nice sunny pool area and spa also. They even kindly gave... More

Excellent place to stay nice and close enough to walk to Surfers. Lovely owners, have stayed several times. Recommend to people who don't want a high rise and want really good value for money. Spacious apartments with balconies. handy to everything!

I was very happy with my room, except the fridge froze all my veges......thermostat must be broken as it wouldnt turn down. Leah was very friendly and helpful in reception. Unfortunately the spa was far too hot to use and only ran for 3 mins at a time, had to hop out in the cold wind to press button again.... More
