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... More

Stayed at Sunbird it will be our go to from now on when staying on the Gold Coast. The building has amazing ocean views fantastic apartments. Really enjoyed Main Beach much quieter than Surfers Paradise. Can't wait to come back on our next holiday.

Usually stay in Surfers Paradise but decided we have had enough of the party crowd so went to Sunbird in Main Beach. Location is excellent, right on the beach road. 50 meters to a great coffee shop where we had breakfast and Seven Eleven and Subway next door. Walk to the ritzy Tedder Avenue restraunts, so much better than Surfers... More

We stayed based on reviews but our apartment was nothing that appears in published photos. Our apartment was dark, carpets worn, kitchen utensils/toaster/kettle etc..was old and needed a good clean. Decor was like staying at 'Granma's place'.

We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights on 21C which had a wonderful view of the ocean and river. Would have prefer the beach view, maybe next time. We loved seeing the sun rise each morning and spotted a few whales passing by early in the morning. Would have been handy to have a binoculars to get an even... More

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.

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... More

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.

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".
