Sunset Island Resort
Reviewed 27 December 2010

The staff were pleasant and helpful. We stayed in Room 213 (first floor). Woke up to birds chirping and lovely street scape. Nice and peaceful to come home to after spending 7 min walks to beach and restauants. The pool was great and the teenage girls had a ball in Surfers at night. Safe and easy walking distance from all the action.
Loved it.

I do not recommend this resort for anyone seeking a leisure holiday in surfers paradise. The service is very very poor. Management are rude and arrogant and will take any opportunity to claim extra money. A pool swim ended up costing me a $100 which i was left to pay. We were also charged for previous damages to our room and were not offered any opportunity to dispute this.
The pool and spa area were nice aswell as the bbq area. Caville av is about a 15 minute walk.

Sunset Island Resort has set hours for pool and spa use to allow guests periods of quiet enjoyment at the resort. Use of the pool outside these hours may incur a penalty.

Hosts are very helpful and you can get tickets / entry to all Gold Coast theme parks and tourist attractions. Room enough to spreadout and cut costs by doing own washing / cooking etc. Comfortable beds. Walking distance to Cavill Avenue and Surfers Paradise. Great spot to chill out.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this boutique-style apartment complex in Surfer's Paradise. The rooms were clean and well-cared for. The swimming pool was clean and had a separate barbeque area. It is situated in a quiet area with little traffic. A short walk (about 15 mins)from shops, shopping malls and the beach.
On arrival we found some sachets containing coffee and tea in the fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom had a shower but also a washing machine as well as a clothes dryer.

The staff was most helpful and gave us great service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Sunset Island Resort to anyone.
