We enjoyed our last stay so much we booked again (even the same room) and will continue to book the Sunbird for future visits.
The apartments are beautifully clean and fresh (the fridge was cleaner than the brand new one I bought at home last week) and spacious. Air conditioning and over head fans as well as sea breezes.
Very convenient to beaches and Tedder Ave for restaurants, salons and conveniences. The units and parking are secure. Surprisingly quiet for a high rise (we did get a bit of noise one night from some lads in the hallway but once they were in their apartment we heard nothing). The managers and staff are wonderful - very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
The apartment is starting to show the tiniest bit of wear & tear in terms of maintenance but so minor it would in no way prevent us from staying again.
The kitchen and laundry are well equipped and there's even a real hairdryer in the ensuite (not those rubbish wall mounted ones). Comfortable beds, great water pressure.

Booked into Sunbird based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. Great location in Main Beach...2 min walk to the beach and 5 minutes walk to Tedder Avenue for great coffee. Close to everything, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers if you want some space. Apartment on the 16th floor was terrific/ Kids loved the place and it was hard to tear them away. Facilities (pools, spa, tennis court, parking etc') were all great, with friendly, helpful staff. Sunbird will be our Gold Coast destination of choice in the future, for sure.

Loved this hotel. We stayed in 21D top floor.
Close to everything. Facilities were great. Apartment well equipped. It was a little dated but I didn't care as it was spacious and had great views. Tedder Ave was a few minutes walk. Beach is only a few steps away. 7 eleven, subway and a great cafe are also nearby. Definately would stay again.

Hi Amie C, thank you for your review of your stay in unit 21D at Sunbird. I notice that you stated that the apartment was a "little dated". This apartment is what we consider to be of a 'standard' quality, and next time, if you preferred something a bit more modern, you would be welcome to book a 'superior' quality apartment, at a slightly higher rate. But the views are great, we agree! Thanks once again for your positive review, and we look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Anna (Manager)

This was a return visit to Sunbird for us. This time we stayed in 21A which was very comfortable. The view from the balcony was great and we even saw whales. The kitchen probably needs a bit of a top-up with some gear, but the unit was otherwise very well resourced. The staff at Sunbird were as friendly as ever and everything is very well maintained. We will be back again.

I stayed in 2B. Lovely spacious modern apartment, facing the ocean. The ocean is visible but the apartment is too low for panoramic views. Quiet, very close to the beach. Bed was comfy. Walking distance to Treddor St restaurants etc. The beach is gorgeous here - beautiful squeaky soft sand.
The underground carpark for 2B is a bit tricky to get into - right up against the wall. My small car was OK reversing into it, but in a larger car you'd want to be confident. Plenty of street parking though, or if you time it right there is a small carpark outside the foyer.
One minor irritation - FOXTEL remote buttons are pretty worn out.

Hi London88, thank you for your review. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay in unit 2B, which is considered a garden view apartment, even though you can still see a low view of the beach. I agree that the car park for this unit can be a bit tricky to use if you have a larger vehicle and/or are not confident, but if we are not busy, guests are welcome to come to Reception and swap car spaces for the period of their stay. All the on-street parking in Main Beach is free and it is also easy and safe to leave your car parked outside overnight. Sunbird's podium carpark outside Reception is 2 hour parking, and is designed to make it easier for guests who are arriving/departing or visiting for short periods to be close to the building. With regards to your comment about the Foxtel remote, I checked the apartment after reading your review and have replaced the remote, as the printing on the volume button was slightly worn. If this had bothered you during your stay, you would have been most welcome to visit or phone Reception to swap the remote for a new one - we are here to help! Thank you once again for your review. Regards, Anna (Manager)
