Sunshine Beach Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a lovely place to stay with the family. Very close to the beach and you can walk along the beach to Surfers Paradise. The rooms were very comfortable and well maintained. Great facilities! Great Location and the staff were very friendly

Fantastic accomodation easy to find and super comfy beds, pool was fantastic, would been 5 stars if there was a restaurant for dinner and breakfasts but other than that I would definitely recommend staying here

This place is a very good value for money motel. Clean, big rooms (ours had a queen plus 2 x single beds, even though we only needed 1 queen size bed - so very handy if you travel with family). Also has a nice small pool, even though you are not far away from the beach (you do however need to walk/drive about 1km around the Gold Coast Hwy to reach the beach - beautiful beach there by the way). Wifi is provided but didn't seem to work for the 4 days we were there.

Price wise you can't do much better on the gold coast. Basic rooms and facilities but comfortable and filled with friendly staff. My partner and I extended our stay here and absolutely loved it. Would come back!

Firstly - THEY CHARGE AN EXTRA 2.5% to pay on any kind of credit AND debit card.. so its going to cost you more than the quote you get on any of the booking sites.... I've never had this issue in any other accommodation booked via any websites. It was nowhere near any kind of shop, so no way of nipping out to buy milk, or anything for breakfast. You would NEED to have a car if you are staying here. The room itself was pictured here with a balcony, we didn't have one and when we asked reception the next day we were told that actually only 4 rooms within the whole place had balconies (surely don't put that on their pictures then as it's a massive disappointment for people choosing this hotel over others due to the fact of having a balcony). We felt really disappointed and let down by this so asked if we could cancel and move hotels - we were told that we'd not get any money back, which is ridiculous as it is unlawful advertising to show amenities that you will get in a room and then not supply them. Our room was a tiny little box room. We only had one window which was almost at ceiling height and let no light in, it was like living in a cave. We could get more light if we left the bathroom door open as the bathroom had a window - but it stank horribly - so we couldn't. AC worked but was sooo loud!! WiFi didn't work at all during our 4 day stay. You also have to call the reception to get your key – so if you aren’t from Aus and your mobile doesn’t work, you’d be totally stuffed – I was lucky that I brought my Auzzie friend to check in with me. Also no plates or cutlery to actually be able to cook anything… It doesn't take much to impress me, and I think this is the first bad review I've given. However, overall an extremely awful stuffy place, far away from everything. Stay in Broadbeach, Mermaid Beach or somewhere at least near a shop. It cost us a LOT in Ubers to get around. Staff were friendly, we complained about our room and she did offer to move us, although not into one with a balcony as there are supposedly hardly any of them! There is plenty of parking. Pool is nice and clean, but small and could benefit from some sun loungers (these are pictured, but not actually there when you arrive).

When I checked in at 4.45 pm I was put in an adjoining room and found that I could hear everything that was going on next door. After 20 minutes I realised I had been placed in a room next to a prostitute. Was disgusted and went to reception but they were already closed. Had to ring an after hours number and finally got re-allocated another room. Trouble is is was cheap and nasty with minimal lighting, no bedside lamp, clock, clean cutlery or natural light along with a putrid smell. When I approached reception the next day I was told they do not discriminate and the prostitute was more than welcome. Endured this hovel for 2 nights and will never return.

Fun time on the Gold Coast - accommodation kept its promise. Friendly staff Tips for local attractions appreciated. Late check out and good amenities. Very loud neighbours and allergy kept us awake our first night.

Absolutely disgusted by the inattentiveness' of the hotel manager Vanessa. Spoken to with such an abrupt attitude when all I was doing, was making enquires. Room was extremely clean and I had no problems whatsoever with the room i shared with my partner. Lovely view over the pool. Would have given it a 5 if it wasn't for the disgraceful behaviour from the manager

When we entered the room, there was a faint smell of cigarette smoke. This became more pronounced with the air conditioner running. The bathroom had a strong smell of bleach but the floor did not appear clean around the edges of the floor tiles. The room we had, was towards the back of the property and we did not hear a lot in the way of road noise, which was good. The linens were clean and the room had a refrigerator. I would have to say however, that while the bed was comfortable, the curtain over the window was inadequate to block out the very bright lights in the walk way outside. I woke a few times during the night thinking it was morning, it was so light in the room.

I found this hotel to be exactly what I needed - an affordable, comfortable, clean place to stay. The pool was clean and functional with BBQ. The bed was comfy and clean, could have used a blanket though. The room was basic and not overly equiped but functional and clean. The place was mostly quiet (except for some idiot swimming loudly at 4.30 in the morning). All my friends stayed a few doors up the road for a higher Price and far lower standard! The office hours are odd, but call the number and the key safe is open.
