We're staying here for the February $147/night deal. Bloody great value as you get park entry to all 4 Village Roadshow parks while you're here. Sea World Resort is very tired despite us upgrading to a premium room. There's a shower curtain in the bathroom? I couldn't possibly think of anything more gross to share with fellow bathers. The block...

I think we must of stayed at the wrong place - the water park is the pool and small kids fun park (same as you get at your local caravan park) It was still a fun experience for the entire family though, resort & rooms were clean enough. We traveled as a group with ages from 80 to 4 months....

We purchased the weekend pass to SeaWorld & overnight stay at SeaWorld Resort for a family present and we definitely got our value for money. The resort was nice and fancy, great bar/restaurant, huge pool area and waterpark with heated spa and sauna. The rooms themselves could do with a little revamp, just in certain areas, but you can definitely...

Hello Captain C, what a great idea for a Christmas present. You are correct, it is good to take your time and not rush the Theme Parks, as so much to see and do, and staying at the Resort all adds to the weekend family experience.

I read a lot of reviews of the resort before we decided on staying here, and we are so happy we did. Simply put, if you have pre-teens, this is THE holiday spot on the Gold Coast for you. Our family of 4 (kids 5 and 2) stayed there from 12th to 17th February using a Groupon voucher and had...

I went here just recently with my 4 grandchildren. Bring plenty of sunscreen not too much shade but lots of fun and attractions to see. We visited the dolphin show. Fabulous to watch and my grandson got a one on one visit to the dolphin enclosure to learn about them, touch and learn signals to teach them. You also had...

Good value for families and younger children If you have teenage boys don't bother.Bistro Restaurant is fine. Pool is inadequate. Very dissappointed the water park has disappeared from Sea World. Only reason we went there. Guy running the fly board was very helpful.

Hello Kim H, for your review, the waterpark area at Sea World Theme Park, should be redeveloped later this year, bringing another great attraction to Sea World.

We throughly enjoyed our stay, with our 3 children. Our children range in age from 6 to 16 and all of them had a memorable holiday that they loved. We also had a package where we visited all 3 theme parks during our stay. We were sometimes dissapointed when some of the rides were closed during our visit. We had...

We stayed here 1 night in February. The room was quite nice and had all the usual amenities. The pool is great although very, very busy. It's only a 10 minute drive to surfers. The only downside of our stay was that there were several kids birthday parties on during our visit which meant the carpark was full and we...

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.

It's a wonderful experience the kids will never forget.
