Holiday Experience

If your a very budget conscience traveller, this may be the type of accommodation for you. If you you don't mind climbing 4 flights of stairs with your luggage from the basement carpark to get to your room on the top floor of the building, this may be your thing. The apartment was fairly clean but quiet outdated and warned. The location is dose to most things and quiet convenient.

Great location, peaceful for when you want to relax by the pool and only a ten minute walk into surfers paradise when ur ready to have some fun. Receptionist was a very nice lady and very welcoming. Great for families and couples would definitely recommend.

Couldn't ask for more

Sunset Island Resort was fantastic!! The location was excellent and the staff were very welcoming. There was plenty of pamphlets to browse for things to do. The apartment itself was outstanding and the heated spa was a fantastic place to relax after a long day of adventuring. Close to public transport and cafe's and restaurants. Dream World, Wet and Wild and Movie World is 30 min away by public transport and Sea World 15 min. Would definitely stay again.

Don't Stay here

I have stayed in many resorts/hotels and this is by far the worst 4 star quality. Staff are responsive when you stay there and are rude in correspondences with them after your departure. They will argue with you, deduct extra money from your credit card after you leave, send you a baloney email on your departure stating that you have damaged the room and here is the deduction. Hotel beds are extremely uncomfortable and old you can feel the springs poking through. They require you to do your own cleaning on departure, floors are filthy when you arrive so I would say they don't clean apartments inbetween guests. Apartments are old and need maintaining ie doors come off of hinges. Holes in the block out curtains, smelly apartments. I found body hair in the shower from previous guests. They do however have a lovely clean pool area and digital TV. Loud location, doors slamming all hours of the day and night located near backpackers inns so security is always an issue here. About a brisk 10 min walk to heart of Surfers.

Don't buy tour tickets here they are more expensive than buying through the park yourself. Cheapest place to buy is down the street in shopping complex.

PLEASE DON'T STAY HERE EVER, THE GUTTER IS BETTER

This place is by far the worst I have stayed in, definitely not a 4 star best described as "similar to a rundown 2 star with issues". There are holes in the walls, marks everywhere on your arrival, which they blame you for on departure. Dirty & Smelly the apartments will make you sick and contract Footrot. The floors & carpets are a breeding ground for scum i would doubt these have ever been cleaned (you will also be charged to clean these on your departure- told that you dirtied them with make up or food) appliances, crockery, cutlery are filthy, the toaster wasnt cleaned (the crumb tray wasn't cleaned out of the toaster from previous guest). body hair and mould found in showers. They don't clean or maintain the apartments, beds are the most uncomfortable old beds they could find, loud and creaky. Staff are hostile unapproachable and rude after your departure. The male there is intimidating. On the plus side TV worked, DVD player and hairdryer was supplied but not working. We approached the owner after we departed and queried the state of the apartment we were handed only to be told smugly it had recently been accredited its 4 star rating. I asked what he had shown them to get this rating and he advised "we take them where they need to go" Go on their websight look at their accrediting body and I strongly urge you to contact them if you have stayed there and query the level of quality just as I did. I have read previous reviews and other reviewers have described if they are staying with families they are being blamed for damages they didn't do - like in my situation. The games up - we know your trick.

Tour booking service is more expensive, than walking down to Chevron Mall and booking directly off of the street. DON'T BOOK TOURS THROUGH THEIR DESK AND DON'T STAY HERE EVER. SLEEP IN THE GUTTER INSTEAD ITS CLEANER
