Have just had one week at Sunbird with the family. Good location and accessibility but the apartment and facilities generally are dated and tired. Kitchen was a little grubby and and bathrooms were small. Beds were also small. Apart from great views you just did not want to hang around and relax. Having had the previous week at an apartment in Noosa the contrast could not be greater. Encountered three receptionists - two were pleasant and helpful and one tried her hardest to ignore us. There would have to be many better options

We stayed here 7 years ago and loved it so when we were deciding on our latest family holiday, it was a no brainer. The 2 swimming pools are both heated and with one being indoors it is perfect for winter holidays! The bbq area is fantastic, all modern, clean and new and it looks over the outdoor pool which makes it great for families to stay together while the dad's are cooking the bbq lol! The apartments are spacious and well equipped and all have amazing views, even the hinterland view was spectacular. Foxtel was a bonus too! Location wise you can't beat it, Tedder Ave just 1 block away for all your dining needs, Seaworld just 5 mins up the road, Australia Fair shopping centre 5 mins drive, what more could you want. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the gold coast as the Sunbird Beach is just perfect! We will most certainly be back again and again and again!

Thank you very much for this positive review. We know that a lot of travellers rely on these reviews and it is good to see that you enjoyed yourself so much. We do work tirelessly to ensure that all who visit our resort have the best possible experience. We have been through two and a half years of refurbishment. The building is looking good, now we can reap the benefits of all the hard work to upgrade our facilities, lifts, heated pools, BBQ and the complete exterior of the building. We look forward to seeing you again.

What an awesome place for a family holiday! The apartments are great, with an awesome view and suitable equipped for a family. The pools are fantastic and regardless of the weather our kids were in the indoor pool every day because it was beautiful and warm. The location is excellent with a quick walk to cafes and the beach and a short drive to SeaWorld and MovieWorld which was perfect for us. We will be back!

Its great to get positive reviews. Thankyou we really appreciate it. I will let all staff know that you think they are super and very friendly. Its also good to see that you feel that you got good value for money. Times are difficult at the moment and this is an area that we have been focusing on. The facilities are all new and the 2 bedroom units are pretty comfortable sizewise for mum dad and 2 children. Being over from a patrolled beach is also a bonus. Thanks again.

The resort is walking distance to the beach. Very relaxing. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The rooms are rather small especially the bathroom. Lounge and kitchen is very spacious and balcony as well with good views. Staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly.

Thank you for posting this review. We have taken a number of positive steps to improve the areas where you have marked us down. We take pride in areas of hygiene and customer service . Our units are all 2 bedroom apartments and are approximately 150 sq M in size. We believe this is an ideal size apartment for Mum, Dad and 2 Kids especially as we are in close proximity to all Theme Parks. Our new BBQ area is proving to be a big hit and our newly renovated heated indoor and outdoor pools are ideal for swimming all year round.
I have passed your positive comments about our staff onto them. It is good for them to be recognised for their efforts and I appreciate this.
Regards Phil - Manager Sunbird.

Booked into the Sunbird beach apartments because of the location. It is right opposite the beach so the views are breathtaking.

AREA
Great for families/couples/older people. Basically anyone will love it, its in a quieter part of the coast at main beach so on the end closest to Sea World. Not to much in the way of resturants in close walking distance so better for those who are on a driving holiday/hired a car/or are planning to self cater. You could always grab a taxi or catch the bus down to surfers though which is only about 15 mins away by car. There was a 7/11 on the next block though.

POOLS
When we were there they had just reno'ed the pool area so they have an outdoor pool, bbq area, tennis court and then an indoor pool, spa and sauna. The only thing we didnt like was that the spa was only luke warm.

ROOMS
fantastic, recently renovated and had brilliant kitchens with pretty much everything you could need. Laundry facilities came in handy too. Its an older style block so the rooms are large which was great, perfect for a family or group of friends.

would definately recommend to friends and family, it was a great place for a real beach getaway :)
