Will definitely be back at Sunbird on future Gold Coast travels. Lovely staff and apartments with free, easy parking in an excellent location. We had views of both the beach and river. The indoor pool is quite small but nice and there is a spa with jets.

The building wasnt maintained probably and it is falling apart. We had flood, leak, broken floor, inroom facilities are in bad shape. Staff was far from helpful when disaster is happened. Never choose this hotel again.

Thank you Daniel for your feedback. This was an unfortunate time with a pipe relating to the fire system which did affect the top floors and was most certainly not due to lack of maintenance on the building. We do apologize again as this was a critical issue which did affect everyone at this time and which is why you did receive a refund against your booking due to this issue. We know this was a challenging time for everyone especially being on the top floor - thank you again for your feedback.

Week long stay during Christmas through to New Year 2020. Family of four including teenage boys on the 13th floor. Service professional and polite. Rooms very clean. Lounge and kitchen more than adequate. Washing machine and dryer very handy. Location screamed beach and holiday. Panoramic views of the beach, the river, poolside and tramway. From our room watched our kids swim or play tennis or opt for beach or river views. Very handy to beach. Wonderful walking pathway in either direction for as long as you care to walk yet located for more low key hustle and bustle. Five minute walk to catch tram to go in either direction for shopping, to movie world before a short bus journey. Miss you already. Thank you.

Stayed in the first floor two bed apartment, and must say the family absolutely loved it. Very clean and spacious apartment. Great views and very close to beach. Had underground parking. Would definitely recommend here.

We stayed at the Sunbird as a last minute break at the Gold Coast. I don’t know where the pictures on the website came from because our apartment looked nothing like it. While the location couldn’t be better, the apartment was old, rubbish furniture and dirty. There were marks all over the walls though it was supposed to be renovated, and the bathrooms were dated and grotty. Pretty disappointing other than the fabulous location and views from the balcony.

We had a great beachfront apartment, level 12. The apartment was large, modern, massive balcony directly across the road from the patrolled beach. I did do my research, asked for photos of our exact apartment before booking etc. contact the resort directly you get so much more information. Initially a beachfront wasn’t available and I booked elsewhere, but sunbird contacted me to say one had become available. Really glad I booked it. The highlight is the pool/bbq/tennis area - it’s all in one fenced area, great for kids, indoor pool very warm. Only negative of the apartment was the bed - very hard and terrible pillows. They have free tennis racquets & balls to borrow for the tennis court. Good location and easy parking underneath

My wife and I have just spent 3 nights at this Resort and could not fault anything about our stay, we were given room 12A and on entering the unit found it spotlessly clean. The unit was 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms with fantastic ocean views from the lounge-dining area, balcony and also the main bedroom, the unit has very good air conditioning, so the weather did not impact on our stay. There is a full kitchen with Large fridge,Microwave oven, 4 burner stove and oven, Dishwasher and plenty of dinnerware and cutlery. The resort has 2 heated pools, (1) is 35deg,c (indoor) and (2) 25deg.c (outdoor), there is a Sauna, Full Size Tennis Court as well as a Squash Court, Large Bar-B-Q area with plenty of seating and 2 large Bar-B-Qs. We had no noise problems from other guests and found the front office staff very welcoming and helpful. I thoroughly recommend the Sunbird Beach Resort to other Trip Advisor Members

Had a really nice stay at Sunbird, nice views from room and very comfortable stay. Really loved the pool and how close we were to Surfers, Main Beach And we wandered straight down from the accommodation to the beach and swam between the flags. Great spot for families - our view from 17a was great!

It was our 2nd stay at Sunbird Beach Resort at Main Beach Gold Coast. The previous one was in 2016. Again we stayed in 21C. It is definitely our Home away from home every time we are here for our kid’s school holiday. Very comfortable and easy to get to. The after hour checkin process was very easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back here for our next trip.
