we travelled all the way down there only to find out they had given our room to someone else and were unable to rectify the situation. They were very unwilling to help us out and in the end we had to try and find alternative accommodation at 10pm at night! I have never been so disgusted in a hotel or... More

Photo's do not do justice for this supposed "Resort". Place was filthy, pretty sure cleaners had not been through. When challenged on the dirty kitchen etc, the excuse was given that they were very busy and maybe cleaner not get there.... Walls very thin, you can hear everything. Stained carpets and walls were disgusting. Booked for 4 people and had... More

Firstly our room 327 did not look any of the brochures. 4 star I don't think so. Our dishwasher and clothes dryer didn't work ( and looked like they haven't for a while!!) the room was clean however. The only thing going for this place is that it's walking distance (past the backpackers accommodation) to cavil ave. I wouldn't stay... More

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
