Whilst I don't think anyone could classify this as a five star resort, I have no reservations in calling Sunbird a five star stay.

It appears that there has been a change of ownership or management in the last little while which has improved the overall feel of the complex, although our previous visits were enjoyable.

Our stays have been for two or three nights and have had the pleasure of ocean view apartments each time. We usually arrive outside of business hours and it is a simple case of ringing through to a pleasant after hours staffer to grab your keys and begin a most enjoyable stay in the Main Beach precinct.

Our two bedroom units have been modern and well equiped having been recently updated. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are supplied to get you started. Sunbird is so close to Tedder Ave with great restaurants and quiet, relaxed, slightly upmarket atmosphere. Convenience stores, alcohol take always, fast food are just a block away.

We will be back in a few months Sunbird.

Had another great stay at Sunbird. Patrolled Beach 50 mts. Rooms large with everything needed and very clean. Heated indoor and outdoor pool, tennis and now free unlimited wi-fi which is new. A bonus.

Room tip: Go for beachfront but others have a nice view also.

This is now my families 7th stay here at Sunbird. Just a short stay this time to try a different time of year. Again cannot fault it. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and facilities are great.

Room tip: I normally choose the "A" side for the view.

We really enjoyed our stay, although we were told that this is a serviced apartment we didn't have anyone come clean our apartment during our entire stay. The pictures were a bit deceiving and that's the only reason we didn't give a 5 because although our room was okay it wasn't decorated as nicely as what we thought we were going to have. The bathrooms really need an update but were very clean. The facilities were amazing the outdoor and indoor pools were incredible. They have a sauna and tennis court. Everything was near by very good for location. Staff were pleasant. All in all a very good resort!

Thank you Umma1709 for your review.
We do have great facilities and fantastic location.
We advertise and operate self contained, self catering apartments and not serviced apartments. Please let us know who you booked through as we need to address this incorrect information that you received. The photos on our website are representations as a guide only as all apartments are individually owned and all are differently furnished.
We do have Standard and Superior rooms and Guests quite often look at the Superior photos and book Standard. Our new website will be launched in the next few weeks with updated photos. Please let us know what room you had so we can represent your comments to the Owners.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again on a return visit.
Regards
Harold & Joan

As a regular visitor to the GC with my family we've experienced a fair few of the apartments that Main Beach has to offer. Happy to say that Sunbird Beach Resort is yet another great option to add to the list.

Like most of the resorts that offer owner apartments for lease you never know exactly what you're going to get but in terms of style or luxury but our two-bedroom apartment was suitably spacious and well appointed.

There's no questioning the excellent location of Sunbird to shops, beach and activities, and the onsite swimming pools and tennis courts simply add to the benefits.

The staff were also very helpful and welcoming.

Looking forward to a return visit in future.
