“Great hotel, amazing bed, small rooms”
Reviewed 21 November 2010

I love the Marriott hotel in Brisbane and wanted to try the Gold Coast version. The bed was absolutely to die for! The club lounge is so lovely and relaxing. Only negatives are that the rooms are rather small and its more expensive when getting taxis to Surfers as you have to travel north for quite a while in order to turn around. But its a beautiful hotel and I would stay here again.

Fantastic spot w/ ocean view and excellent service from the staff; front desk, concierge, travel desk and the house keeper.... the only thing I wasn't happy about is the breakfast buffet..

Stayed three nights at this great hotel. Excellent decor, friendly staff and great ocean and river views make this hotel a favorite. At nearly 300 Aussie dollars, it is not cheap.So when you find that there is no wifi anywhere in the hotel, it is a surprise. Reception staff sold us access to lounge called the Elandra Club Retreat on the 27th floor at an additional 100 a night. What a ripoff. No wifi in that lounge either. Lounge is manned by hotel only breakfast hours and after that have your biscuits and cakes using room access key. Lounge was empty therefore most of the time.Rooms were well appointed. Parking was complimentary. Enjoyed the hotel stay nevertheless.

I have been fortunate to be able to stay at the Surfers Paradise Marriott 3 times in the past 7 years, and each time my stay has been very enjoyable. Overall the hotel has a great feel about it – upscale but also casual. The hotel is a little removed from the crowds of Surfers Paradise, but that is a good thing. You can join the crowds just a short drive away or a 10 minute walk, but when you return to the hotel you feel as if you are on a tropical island. The pool area is amazing, featuring a sandy beach and live fish, not to mention a waterfall and water slide. On each of my visits the front desk staff and bell desk personnel have been great, and it is refreshing to find complimentary parking at a hotel of this caliber. If there where anything I would change it would be the food in the Lobby Lounge and the room décor. On my first visit to this hotel 7 years ago the food offered in the Lobby Lounge was very diverse (the Dim Sum was wonderful), however now the food offered is more along the lines of pizza & hamburgers, average at best (however the service remains good). The rooms are very, very comfortable – they just need to be refreshed. The bathroom is large and the bed provides a great night sleep. The carpeting and television could use upgrading, but none of that matters when you are sitting on the balcony looking at the lights of the high-rises, the river and the waves breaking on the beach. The Surfers Paradise Marriott remains one of my favorite hotels in the world.

I stayed in this hotel for a convention for some days. It's really a good holiday place to stay. Unfortunately the weather conditions at that time haven't been that ideal anymore. Otherwise you can reach the beach in some minutes by walk and swim in the pacific ocean.
The resort hotel has no club lounge. Discussing about this issue with the hotel manager, she sent me a package of local beers to the room together with an ice cooler as a complimentary gift from the hotel. This was suprising me very much.
The hotel room is nice and illuminated. The bathroom is very comfortable. The view the sea beach is great.
All in all a good hotel with good service.

We were looking for a relaxing getaway after the birth of our 6 month old baby and was so happy to have chosen Marriott resort. We went with four kids aged 10,8,3 and 6 mths with grandma to help out. I recommend upgrading to the Elandra club level as you can eat and drink pretty much all day, so handy when kids get hungry at all times of the day and you just can't keep on waiting 45 mins for room service or lug everyone to a restaurant. Breakfast at the club was excellent,snacks divine,juices and drinks all top quality and the happy hour of alcoholic drinks in the evening was much appreciated by dad! The crownIes went down well!the best part of the resort is the pool with tropical fish. For the full five days we were there,the kids did not whinge about being bored or wanting to go visit the "worlds". They were so fascinated by the fish,they snorkeled for hours! Hint: buy a set of snorkels and mask for each child before you go for around $13 Target, instead of hiring it there for $10 a day. Best investment ever!for the little ones I bought a little blowup boat so they didn't have to stay wet all the time but could float around in the pool all day with us. Meals,service,rooms were excellent and minor issues were very quickly and efficiently rectified. Will definitely stay there every time we visit GC.
