Reviewed 6 January 2013

We had a 3 bedroom villa (2 bedroom apartment + 1 bedroom apartment with connecting door). Kitchen amenities sparse but adequate for our needs. Stove in 2 bedroom, benchtop hotplates in 1 bedroom. Corner spa in 1 bedroom unit, large bathroom with single spa bath as ensuite off main bedroom and separate bathroom with shower in 2 bedroom apartment.
Television in each of the lounge areas - no televisions in bedrooms - which wasn't really a problem for us. Sofa beds in lounge areas - cost us an extra $35 a night to have bed linen for sofa bed. Housekeeping every three days - just change of towels really - did not change bed linen.
Loved the quiet - backyard with bush visited by kookaburras and magpies. Outside pool not enormous but much larger than than the average motel - we found most afternoons we had it to ourselves which was nice. Normal size inside heated pool, a small wading pool, two spas and two small games rooms (one for preschooler age) also available in the pool area. Pool closes at 8pm which we found disappointing.
About 10 to 15 minutes away from theme parks and about 20 minutes from Surfers which we found convenient. Shopping centre just a few minutes down the road which was useful - a couple of restaurants there including Sushi train which was also useful so close to the resort.

Lovely quiet, peaceful, and relaxed setting. The antithesis of what you imagined the Gold Coast is like. No schoolies or drunken larrikins to keep you awake at night. Much more family orientated. I stayed there for more than 6 months and found it a wonderful place to stay. The villas are huge and good value for money if you are a family. Furnishings a bit dated, however everything is clean, tidy and functional, and the staff are very helpful. Surrounded by lovely gardens with lots of native birds, the Royal Woods is a little oasis in Ashmore. Nice and secure I felt quite comfortable letting my niece walk round the complex by herself, and there are several families who stay there long term so she had lots of little friends to play with. Would recommend it to anyone seeking quiet secure accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers and Broadbeach.

Room Tip: I would recommend booking a two bedroom or three bedroom villa because they come equipped with a ful...

Had an excellent stay here, visiting my parents who live nearby in a retirement village. Was upgraded to a corner spa suite, which was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Yes, the decor is a bit 80's but bed was comfy, air conditioning cold and shower and bath water hot and plentiful. The unit was well equipped with kitchenware and crockery etc and clean.
It was very tranquil and I enjoyed waking up to sounds of birds and views of greenery. Not sure how quiet it would be during peak school holidays, but probably quieter than a hotel room. Beach is around 15 - 20 mins drive, but for families who wish to visit Gold Coast theme parks, resort close to access to main highway. If you want to be right at the beach, this may not be the property for you, but if you are going to explore the general area, its location is excellent and the price is right. Appreciated the generous, free welcome breakfast basket and the friendly welcome and departure by Donny at reception.

So peaceful, waking up to chirping birds not traffic or other guests coming home in the early hours of the morning. It is a gated complex but they still have security guards that patrol throughout the night which makes you feel extremely safe. We stayed in a corner spa suite which was extremely spacious and my Sister, her husband and their children stayed in a 3 bedroom villa which was bigger than their own house!!! I was hesitant about staying after reading some of the other reviews but I can honestly say we all loved it here. The staff are extremely friendly & helpful, they go above and beyond with their service. We all loved the waterfall over the pool and the spa's were great, we used the cold spa for daytime & the heated spa for early evening. There is a bus stop only a few minutes walk from the resort which was quite handy too as I had to catch the bus one day while my partner had our car. All in all, we all had a fantastic weekend and we have all booked the same room types for 5 nights over the Christmas holidays. We look forward to seeing all the smiling faces once again.

Room Tip: Corner spa suites with balcony also the 3 bedroom villas

In this day & age it's hard to imagine the Gold Coast as a relaxed getaway destination. One where the staff turn over is non existent, a place where you can feel right at home yet still feel catered for.
Royal woods has never disappointed their hospitality is second to none the rooms are clean, large & comfortable, the handy parking makes the world of difference, the pool/bbq/juke box area will have you spoilt for choice, and best of the location is conveniently hidden away from any annoyances.

A special thank you to Leonie for making our trip a memorable one.

Room Tip: The staff were very helpful in helping us find the right room

For an overnight quick trip down at the coast, the family was looking for a place with nice facilities and spacious.

The rooms where spacious but in desperate need of a refurb, unless you like that 80/90 beige look, also the resort facilities where a bit dated not really a reflection of price or pictures.

This facility seems to be set up for longer term rentals and I would not pay the $300+ price tag to stay at this resort again.

Our 2 bedroom villa was booked for a business stay and whilst it was clean and comfortable, it was very definitely outdated and could do with a real spruce up. The accommodation was adequate, nice balcony and plenty of room for 3 people but the resort itself is situated in a very out of the way place...there is absolutely nothing around it, it is almost plonked inside a residential/suburban area. Having said this, the staff seem friendly enough, the rooms were clean and well appointed, but smelt musty, I think they mustn't have been used in quite some time. We stayed for business because it was close to Royal Pines but I don't think I would choose this resort for a personal trip. Not really my cup of tea.
