Good but not great. On arrival guest services were blasé. I had to bleed basic arrival information for basic information about the hotel and facilities. I then had to go back and ask for my welcome pack.

Kids loved the pool & kids club. Would've liked more options for dining. Restaurant is noisy & extremely busy as soon as it opens. There aren't any local shops within close walking distance for amenities.

Thank you Ellen W for your review. We are approximately 700m from the nearest shops as we are located on a quiet part of the Spit. We do try to provide basic amenities in our Resort Shop. We would welcome further suggestions of what to stock if you found this insufficient.

Great resort, clean and great location The convenience of staying so close to the resort and leisurely exploring seaworld was fantastic. A car is handy as its a fair walk to the shops and other restaurants but well worth the money. The rooms were a lot more modern than I was expecting.

Thank you for your feedback heathd922, our fridges are just for mini bar really as we are a fully serviced Resort with many outlets that offer a variety of dining options the fridge is provided purely for that purpose.

Super resort for families. Very helpful staff. Great facilities and lovely clean units. Super restaurants. Activities can be booked onsite by helpful staff. Great to walk straight through to SeaWorld. We would return in a heartbeat. Kids loved it.

We were apprehensive about our stay at the resort due to some bad feedback on here and on their face book page. It was a welcomed relief that our stay fantastic, room was great, resort amenities were great and staff were always helpful and friendly.

Credit Card Fees were OUTRAGEOUS, and now illegal! 2.85% fee for AMEX is more than double the merchant fees charged by AMEX (at no more than 1.3%)! The rooms are ok, but are in dire need of an update. Our biggest issue during our stay was that there was a contractor replacing floor tiles outside our room which woke us...

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.
