Sunset Island Resort
Reviewed March 9, 2014

My wife and I stayed for just over a week and enjoyed every moment spent there. The apartment we lived in was very clean and tidy, well presented and all the standard conveniences you require. So close to Surfers Paradise within a few minutes walk.

Our grandson really enjoyed the place and especially the swimming pool complex. Highly recommend this hotel. The only negative if you could call it that, is that our bed was on the firm side.

Room Tip: Corner room 104 was a real treat, the outside deck area was HUGE !!, recently decorated.

We have stayed for the 3rd time in 18 months at Sunset Island Resort in Surfers Paradise. We just love it! The accommodation is clean and has everything the spoiled traveler wants. Yes there is a difference in units, some have newer furniture and TV's than other but price wise it is a good deal. There is a great heated pool, a hot spa and great bbq facilities. Yes there are 4 and 5 stars motels/hotels with better facilities but you will pay the price. We love to be away from all the Surfers Paradise hustle and bustle, but still only 5 minutes away from the shops and 10 minutes from the beach. Whats the point?? Sue and Graham are lovely people and will do anything to help you where they can. We asked for a unit on the ground floor due to the mobility of my wife and this was never a problem. I am sure we will be back in Surfers again one day and for us there is no other place we will stay!

I booked this place as I had heard from someone through work that this hotel was good. I certainly was NOT disappointed. I wanted something away from the centre of the beach area, & NOT too noisy.
The place was MUCH BETTER than I expected. Sure it was a good 10 minute walk to the beach but the reception lady Leah? was VERY welcoming & helpful in booking us in. When we went up to the room which was EXACTLY what I asked for I found a VERY clean & tidy room. For a 1br it had EVERYTHING!!! It was spacious, & had a dishwasher, microwave, washing machine & clothes dryer which I was NOT expecting. The bedroom was spacious & so was the "lounge room"
I would DEFINATELY go back & stay there & would recommend this place to stay. I also liked the fact that you COULDNT access the car park unless you were staying there.

We stayed here as a group of four and we loved it! Perfect for groups on a weekend away to the Goldie, not too far of a walk to the main strip and area was quiet at night. Only a walk away to the main bus area too which takes you to the theme parks. Kitchen facilities were good, as were all the other amenities, I'd recommend this place to others wanting to stay in the area. Great value for money also - I just wished I'd had the time to go for a swim in the pool!

Room Tip: No lift - pack light!

Nice little place out of the way, but a little too far out of the way. No elevators and a bit out dated but the pool was nice. Room was adequate but it felt like you were in prison-everywhere you looked it seemed that there was a fee attached and it made me nervous. It was like stepping on egg shells - I visited with my so sons, both under 10, and they wanted to charge me an extra person fee. I was very disappointed as this would have made it the price of a beachfront property, luckily after I expressed my disappointed they made me feel like they were doing me a favour by not charging me. I understand the concept of people trying to run a business but this was ridiculous
Has this not happened they would have made it to average - only just

Unfortunately, Sunset Island Resort cannot provide free accommodation - all the resort websites show the additional person charges. For special requests, such as difficulty climbing stairs, please make a request on booking and we will try to accommodate you in a ground floor apartment.
