ALL staff were friendly & helpful, the service was great, the room was clean & tidy although a little cramped for a family of 5 with 3 almost teenage kids, 2 bedrooms instead of 1 with a fold away bed would have been a better option. The resort & rides were fantastic with everything appearing very clean & well maintained...

Stayed for a conference this week and it's a shame to see that not much has changed here since the early 90's. Service is rubbish. I checked in on Tuesday to a lovely blood streaked toilet and after 3 daily visits to reception to ask for it to be cleaned I checked out yesterday and it was still there. The...

We upgraded from a Double Garden View room to a Queen Pool View. The position of the pool room was excellent. We feel it was expensive as we visit the Gold Coast yearly and usually stay in Surfers in a high rise self contained apartment. Your resort pool and spa facilities could do with an upgrade. We were disappointed in...

Sea World is such a wonderful place for a relaxing family holiday. So close to the beach and the pool & splash zone is awesome for kids! It's great being right next door to sea world too. The kids were soo excited to catch the monorail from the resort right into sea world. The rooms are beautiful and are cleaned...

Sorry but Id love to like this place more but large patches of missing paint and holes in the walls of our guest room, lifts not working, rust everywhere and just general evidence of lack of attention to maintaining the property makes the whole thing look second rate. Food is hellishly expensive in-house, fortunately much more reasonable options are just...

We were surprised to get a 1/2 price midweek overnight stay through Expedia, then even more surprised when the accommodation included entry to Seaworld for two days. Good reception service, comfortable rooms, nice pool area, plenty of dining choice (but quite pricey so we ate out at the nearby Marina), free parking.

We really enjoyed our stay at SeaWorld Resort. It was a Groupon voucher so the value for money was really there. Everything about the resort was well above average. The actual SeaWorld park needs some maintenance as a lot was closed but we understood as it was not peak season & with the tragedy at Dreamworld everyone is extra vigilant...

We took 2 of our grandsons and our son took his 2 boys plus his 2 nieces and a nephew for a family holiday to the gold coast. We stayed at SeaWorld resort on a deal from Groupon. The whole trip was well worth it from great accommodation at SeaWorld to being able to visit all the theme parks. But...
