We recently stayed in an apartment at Sunbird, and it was great! The location is perfect, far enough away from the busy touristy part of Surfers Paradise, but still close enough to all attractions, Tedder Ave (with some amazing restaurants) and the best beach ever. The apartments are well equipped with everything you need to stay in, cook and relax - I could sit there all day with that view! The pools are great (both indoor and outdoor), I did see a tennis court and gym also - way too energetic for me. :) The staff were also very friendly and helpful. All in all, a really fantastic place to stay. Highly recommend! We will be back.

We stayed for 1 week in January. Staff were very accommodating. We are a family of 5, kids had plenty to do with inside and outside pools, Spa, squash and tennis court. The Resort is situated across the road from a patrolled beach. Our room was 'garden view' but we also had ocean views as a bonus. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed at Sunbird Late November - Early December 2016. Very well presented apartments - we absolutely loved it, felt right at home, close to everything, few mins drive to seaworld and in the opposite direction was a few mins drive to surfers, short walk to beach and tedder ave. Had a couple of BBQs downstairs in pool area, was very lovely. convenient use of the washing machine & drier.. We paid $30 for Wifi for 1 week which had poor connectivity throughout the entire stay - which is about the only thing to improve on! other than that everything is immaculate and i would recommend it to anyone!

Room tip: Superior Beach Front rooms are a must!

We rented a superior beach front apartment which was on the 11th floor. Just across the road from the beach and not really "Beach Front" as the name implies.
Well worth the extra few $$ compared with either the lower floors or the garden view apartments. If you are not aware, Main beach goes forever and the "flagged" areas to swim are quite a distance apart. Sunbird is right opposite a swimming area so its a quick stroll to get there. If you were , say half way between flagged areas it would be an extra 10 minute walk.
The apartment we had (11A) was clean and had all the utensils needed, just a couple of little points that were annoying. No free wi-fi I could not believe they charged $10 a day or $30 a week. as we were there for 4 nights it was a pain. Also the supply of toilet paper . They say they only give a "starter" amount ie 1 roll in each toilet, however the guest info book says complimentry TP. Again for a say 2 week stay it would be OK to buy a big lot at supermarket, but again a 4 day stay is just the wrong timing for such things. I managed to beg a couple of more rolls from reception though so all was not lost.
There is a nice coffee shop just a few minutes walk away and a whole lot of small shops, Liquor Land and restaurants about 10 minutes walk.

We also made the mistake of booking a Uber ride to the airport when leaving. Did not turn up at requested time and phoned 14 minutes later when we were already in a Gold Coast cab which arrived 3 minutes after booking. Uber communications are non existent so beware.

Room tip: Go for the superior beach front 11th floor was good, high enough for spotting whales but not too high. over 14th floor would be too high
