This place was a very comfortable stay. Our unit was spacious and clean, it was a nice ten minute stroll to Carell avenue, the heart of surfers. The staff at sunset were courteous and helpful. This will be our future surfers destination. Would recomend to anyone.

Once again a fantastic stay at Sunset Island Resort. Great location walking distance but still private to main Surfers Area - friendly service always made to feel welcome. Unit 224 clean tidy and fantastic for families with two bedrooms and two balconies. We will definitely be returning.

I normally don't right bad reviews but I thought it was just not fair if I didn't share my experience. I stayed here for 4 weeks & as I arrived no one was there to greet me there is no elevator so I had to lift my heavy bags up 3 flights of stairs and hurt myself in the process!... More

Sunset Island Resort is always promoted as a three-floor walk-up. Management suggests at time of booking to advise of any physical difficulties so a more convenient level can be recommended. It consists of self-managed apartments and is not a hotel. All feedback is valued so we can enhance our services. More

We hired the penthouse for a week or so. It wasn't a bad location to stay with a 10 minute walk to the CBD and surfers paradise beach. Since our penthouse was on the third floor, moving luggage and groceries was a pain because there was no elevator. Recommended if you want to stay in surfers paradise on a budget,... More

I've had the pleasure of staying here on three occasions over the last 6 months while visiting friends at Surfers Paradise, I thought it was high time I wrote a review! The management are very courteous and polite, and were always just a phone call away whenever I needed anything. Each time I've stayed I've found the apartments to be... More

Worst accommodation I have ever experienced. Shower was broken and was not fixed right away, sink leaked, tiles falling off walls, live wires exposed, power points coming out of walls and the place was filthy when I arrived. Couches had stains and dust all over them. Would not recommend to anyone, it is very run down and I will never... More
