Reviewed 13 October 2014

We recently spent 2 weeks here and found this to be an excellent location as it was close to Surfers, but far enough away to not hear all the noise. The one bedroom corner apartment on the 3rd floor was light and airy and we appreciated having a full kitchen for cooking when we didn't feel like going out. We...

We had a great family holiday in a 2 bdrm aptmnt. The facilities were just right for us, able to make breakfast in the morning, head out for the day and walk to Surfers in the evening. Also great to have secure, free parking. We loved being able to walk to Cavill Ave and to the shops and supermarket. Unfortunately...

We managed to get a booking for 7 nights here at short notice, and really enjoyed it. The units are spacious, quite modern and well equipped with free car parking underneath. The managers are lovely people ( I guess they would be as they are originally from New Zealand!!!). Nice sunny pool area and spa also. They even kindly gave...

Excellent place to stay nice and close enough to walk to Surfers. Lovely owners, have stayed several times. Recommend to people who don't want a high rise and want really good value for money. Spacious apartments with balconies. handy to everything!

I was very happy with my room, except the fridge froze all my veges......thermostat must be broken as it wouldnt turn down. Leah was very friendly and helpful in reception. Unfortunately the spa was far too hot to use and only ran for 3 mins at a time, had to hop out in the cold wind to press button again....

Office hours are 9.00 am to 5.00 pm week days and 9.00 am to 12.00 noon Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The resort consists of self-managed apartments, and thus a limited number of supplements are provided to start your stay (tea, coffee, sugar,...

The only thing I found issues with was the photos of the kitchen/lounge were deceiving as to the size and the fact that you can't swim/spa after 9pm or before 8am. Other than that the beds were very comfortable and I would be happy to stay there again :-)

Sunset Island Resort apartments are self-managed – sorry, not a hotel. With stays more than a week, fresh linen is provided – at no extra charge. Star ratings are awarded by an outside independent agency. Unfortunately, lost keys mean the full replacement of the door lock. Office hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm weekdays and 9.00am to 12.00noon weekends and public...

I stayed for 7 nights in May. I was concerned that being from the country I would find staying in Surfers too noisy at night. I could not have been happier with the location of Sunset Island Resort as it was not in the heart of Surfers but still within walking distance. I was actually able to sleep at night...

Thank you Countrychick70 for taking the time to write a review. We are very pleased that you were happy with your stay. Although we are only 750m from Cavill Ave (the heart of Surfers Paradaise), being in a quiet side street near the Nerang River has the advantage of being a peaceful location.
