“PERFECT FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDEREN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We have just returned home to gloomy Melbourne after a wonderful week away in sunny Queensland. Not only was the weather responsible for our lovely holiday, but the fabulous hospitality of Sunbird Beach Resort. We stayed in a lower level beautifully refurbished apartment on the 2nd floor with beach views, simply perfect for us with a 3 year old toddler and 3 month old baby. Our little boy safely enjoyed playing on the balcony whilst watching the waves crash on the beach, counting the cars drive by and listening to the happy holidayers stroll past.

The manager Phil and his staff were simply terrific and only to willing to help in any way possible. The foyer has heaps of information and brochures on all the tourist activities, theme parks and dining options available on the gold coast. The receptionists were knowledgeable and made it easy for us to make bookings or happy to give simple directions. Our son was thrilled by the selection of buckets, spades, boogie boards and sports balls he could help himself with to take to the beach across the road.

The outdoor facilities have all had an obvious face lift. Lovely outdoor pool with new sun chairs to relax on. Terrific outdoor wading pool for the kids, lovely grassy areas to lay a towel down for sun baking. Indoor pool,spa and sauna are great too. BBQ area works really well for families.

Our apartment had two bedrooms, two bathrooms. Really great size rooms so we could accommodate out portacot for our baby in our room with us. Terrific kitchen with breakfast bench, stainless steel fridge and all the kitchenware etc to be able to cook meals for the family. Big dining table, comfy sofas and big flat screen TV..

Finally walking distance to great strip on restaurants, cafes and shops. We would recommend staying at Sunbird to anybody:-)

Room Tip: Lower levels apartments for families with young children.

We had room 15A. Views were fantastic, looking straight out onto the beach. Couldn't be better! Location was fantastic, straight down Breaker Street onto Tedder Avenue for excellent cafes and restaurants. Easy access to buses for the theme parks and Pacific Fair, Broadbeach and Taxi rank. Highly recommend for convenience and relaxing holiday. Sandy was lovely and helpful. AAAAA++++++ good value holiday.

Room Tip: Any of the A or B rooms, views from A straight onto the beach directly across the road.

We booked a two bedroom apartment for a few nights for a short break on the Gold Coast. When we arrived we were greeted in a modern reception, by staff that couldn't do enought for us. Even accommodating a second car in the carpark which was convenient for us. The building has obviously been recently renovated and had a lot of money spent on it.
The elevators were modern and the apartments were tidy and of acceptable furnishing and condition. You get a great view up and down the coast from here. The main bedroom and lounge were air conditioned and were fitted with flat screen Tv's and Foxtel. The pool area was modern and had a few sails to get out of the sun. The large BBQ area was very well appointed and undercover. Most of the gardens had been remulshed recently. The only thing I would knock it on was the stink of garbage around the bins in the underground carpark.
The building was located close enough to the restaurants of Tedder Avenue where you could get a cooked breakfast from about $10. You can also walk to the Southport SLSC and Boat Club for something different. You are also just over the road from the beach.
The erosion has really taken its toll on the beach with 10-12ft high cliffs to get down onto the beach. I assume this will improve over time. Overall it was a nice place with excellent helpful staff and I would go back.

Over the last few years we have stayed in the Sunbird Resort on numerous occasions. Great location for taking the kids to have the surf lessons just across the road and also just minutes away from all those lovely restaurants in Tedders Ave. The view just unbelievable, we spotted so many whales this trip, yeah, just by standing on the balcony.
Phil, the manager and his team always cheerful and helpful. Thanks guys. Looking forward to our next trip in the coast already. The Topp's

I have just stayed 6 days with friends at Sunbird Resort on Main Beach and had the best, most relaxing break one could hope for.The location is fantastic , the apartment was clean ,well equipped and decorated, the.facilities were great and the staff were very friendly and helpful.We had a rear facing apartment and the views were spectacular and the apartment was spacious.Both the indoor and outdoor pools were heated and very clean,The BBQ setting was great and it was so relaxing to lay around the pool.and eat lunch on the terrace.
Carolyn and Phil were extremely friendly and very helpful ( nothing was a trouble for them ), the girls on the desk were always friendly and greeted you with a smile..
Overall I was extremely happy with the resort and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quality stay on the Gold Coast.I will definitely be staying there next time I visit the Gold Coast.

Room Tip: I orefer the rear facing ( D ) rooms as you have a view of the beach and hinterland.

What can I say but GO, it has everything, fantastic views, great location, peace, staff are a pleasure to meet. The manager Phil and his team will go out of there way for you, if it can be done they will help you. The resort has been very recently refurbed to a very high standard. The pools are wonderful. The sauna is just what you need, we loved the out door BBQ area next to the pool, very clean and functional with heaps of room and light.

The rooms are just great and this comes from a VERY fussy person (me) bright, excellent views from nearly all levels, modern, all the home comforts, and I mean all!

Everything is beautifully clean, flat screen tv etc etc etc etc.... Look we love the place and would not dream of staying anywhere else on the entire Gold Coast, it's 5 mins from all the action but you can't hear a thing other than the waves breaking!

Sea world is just a few mins away, so is the marina and for my shopaholic wife designer shops gallor! Tedder ave, is just round the corner with a local supermarket and great restaurants.

We loved just waking in the morning to the sound of the sea and nothing else, there is also a little cafe just below to get coffee and fresh juice etc.

Oh tennis, the kids lived to have a game during the day ... Squash as well. Parking is easy with a massive underground car park.

This is the good as it gets and what makes it for me is the team that run it are just as good. Keep it up guys, I can tell you when ever we are asked about the GC we say, "there is only one place" sunbird..... It's a just do. See you guys agin in June can't wait to get back.
