Room was disgusting with no privacy. I put a completely honest and fair review on google about the poor state of the room and spoke to our travel agent about getting a better room. For this alone we were KICKED OUT onto the street. We pleaded for our deposit back as well as a refund for the remaining 3 nights...

We have enjoyed staying at Sunset Island Resort 4 times now. It is a safe and family friendly environment, far enough away from the hustle and bustle... But close enough if if want to walk to shops, restaurants, bars, the night market or the beach. Secure undercover off street parking is great, swim in the pool before planning your day...

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in a well appointed self catering apartment at the Sunset Island Resort. Our apartment over looked the pool and spa and had lovely views of Surfers Paradise lights at night. The bed was a little uncomfortable, but the rest of the apartment made up for it, having everything you need for an...

Found their service atrocious! Senior office manager at reception was extremely rude and arrogant and refused to give us a replacement magnetic strip to enter the hotel, therefore we were unable to enter the hotel after 5pm forcing us to wait outside until another visitor could let us in. He was very abrupt and completely ignored any of our attempts...

We stayed 10 nights while my husband had surgery and found the location fantastic, the apartment had everything we needed and the staff were very accommodating. Was great to have a veranda with a view of the lovely pool. Short walk to the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise but in quiet location.
