Very disappointed with room 1104. Very basic and outdated for the price. Shower over the bath very ordinary and water kept going cold. Mouldy tiles in the bathroom. Toilet in the bathroom is poorly designed. Fridge had a musty smell. Too far from the bus stop and had to park our car on the road. Whole place needs a revamp...

Bought the Cudo deal and found it to be great value. Location is very good if you love Sea World. A short nice drive to Surfers Paradise and we went there 3 nights out of the 5 we stayed for dinner. The rooms are a little tired and in need of a refresh. But liked the fact that there was...

We stayed here last week. Great facility, clean rooms with daily service and Comfy beds. Pools were fantastic kids loved the water park and sponge bob light show. Only downfall would be lack of amenities such as toaster etc in room, this makes eating out for each meal very expensive. We would however definitely stay again. Staff very friendly and...

We stayed to attend a family wedding. Our booking included passes to Sea World, but we had to ask, practically beg for them from the indifferent reception staff. Our room was substandard and felt very old it only had double beds, the bath was rusty and the noise from the dripping shower kept us awake, we had to put a...

Ideal place to stay for families. Nicely furnished rooms and plenty of things to do for the kids. Fantastic light show for the kids everynight. Highly recommended staying in the presidential suites if you get the opportunity. Amazing rooms and even better views.

Thank you Duy N for your feedback. In relation to some of the things you mention, our toilets all have a permanent half flush so not quite sure what else you would suggest from a environmental perspective. Our Waterfall Café offers quick, fast food but there are healthy options on the menu such as the lunch box, which has fruit...

Thanks alishaparmenter for your feedback, we appreciate your suggestions and are currently awaiting a new playground after recently installing a giant chess kit for families to play. Unfortuantely we do not have plans for BBQ's but they are locally available in most of the Gold Coast's Public Parks.

Had a wonderful time watching the kids in the water park and had a comfortable night stay. Had a lovely buffet breakfast and bought items from the gift shop which were also very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back for a weekend stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Take your family on a journey of discovery and adventure at the award-winning Sea World Resort. There's so much to explore including an aquatic adventure playground, cuddles with your favourite Nickelodeon characters including the awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a fun filled Kid's Club. Go on a behind the scenes sneak peek of a dolphin training session with Sea World Resort's exclusive Dolphin Discovery Presentation, free when you stay two nights or more. It's a wonderful experience the kids will never forget. Then join everyone's favourite sponge and his nautical friends in your own underwater adventure at the amazing 'SpongeBob SplashBash' aquatic adventure zone. Your kids will adore the bright and colourful water-play areas themed around SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick, and Squidward, plus a few jellyfish of course. And just try and keep the kids away from the spectacular nightly light show at the musical water fountain. Home to four restaurants and two bar areas, you'll never have to leave the comfort of the Resort. Dine on at the Shoreline Restaurant and experience an amazing new menu that features live interactive cooking, and enjoy delicious Japanese cuisine at Hatsuhana, all family friendly of course. Plus, spoil the kids with an evening in the Resort's newly upgraded Kids' Club with specially designed Nickelodeon activities and programs that they'll love. Sea World Resort is perfect for your family with direct monorail access to Sea World and family friendly service all with Gold Coast beaches and famous theme parks on your doorstep, not to mention free WIFI around the entire hotel and free in-room broadband.
