We stayed here for 4 days on a deal that gave you 25% off resort expenses and unlimited entry into the fun park for all of us for under $200 per night.

Best money ever spent on a holiday. The discounted food offer made the cost of eating at the resort really competitive, the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Parking was a problem on a final night which was a Saturday, other than this, amazing place and amazing value with super dedicated staff, will definitely return

WOW factor!! From the beautiful room set up with a view of the pool, simply AMAZING!! Absolutely loved dinner and breakfast at the resort, food was DELICIOUS!! However the unbeatable part of our experience with Seaworld resort was the Dolphin Discovery which was included in our stay.....absolutely breathtaking and intimite encounter. Counting the time until we can return to share in many more MEMORABLE moments at Sea World Resort!!! Possibly our best FAMILY holiday EVER and we will continue to include Sea World Resort as part of our Surfers Paradise getaways. Until next time....

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor which allowed easy access to the car park and the pool.

It was our dream to see the polar bears since they were set up in Sea World. When we heard they had a baby polar bear our dream was revived and we finally made it in April 2014. Staying at Sea World Resort was fantastic as it offered free behind the scenes training of the dolphins each morning and the monorail to the door was great. The hands on experience of the Ray Pool and also the Penguin enclosure were unforgettable experiences. Even though our passion is the wild life that Sea World offers, coming 'home' at the end of the day and spending time with the children in the pool and spa at the resort was great, bonding and relaxing, one day we even went to the water park and went down the slides in a tube together 10 times in a row :) I would highly recommend staying there, so much is all at your doorstep and the staff were very helpful and efficient, we felt pampered for 3 days:)

Room Tip: We chose one with a microwave in it and fridge, which helped with our meals immensely, but as we wa...

My 7 year old daughter and I recently celebrated her birthday with a trip to Seaworld. The 3 nights that we stayed at the Resort were fantastic. The rooms were clean and nicely sighted with a view over the pool but the most fabulous thing about staying at Seaworld Nara Resort is being able to come and go as you please. As anyone with small children knows it is way too hard to do theme parks in one day. By staying at the resort were also able to get up close and personal with the seals at the morning training session before the park opened. This was a fabulous experience! We also took advantage of the behind the scenes Polar Bear experience. This was one that I will certainly not forget. To be so close to Henry and his mother was one of the most fantastic experiences I have ever had. These bears are fascinating and for $80 it was well worth every cent.

Room Tip: When booking I would definitely ask for a water view.

After a Scenic Tour of Tasmania with a mixed bag of $500 - $700 a night Hotels and Resorts, Seaworld was the most pleasant staffed and relaxing resort with great surroundings , terrific dining.
Reception was the most obliging experience that month , nothing was too difficult with constant offers of assistance for my disabled wife.
We will be there again next year!

Room Tip: Try for a top floor room ,close to dining and reception.😃

This worked out perfectly for us to spend time with my daughter and her family as we live in different States. Great location for the kids - they had an absolutely fantastic time and remember it every day - they are five and three years old. We joined other friends there with their children. Great place to relax with the adults while the children are having fun. Rooms were great - they accommodated us side by side. All amenities were above my expectations. Lovely people, great service and would return there with no hesitation. For a family holiday - you can't do better - fantastic.

I couldn't fault Sea world Resort my family and I had a wonderful time. All the staff are friendly and helpful. As my kids are not young (20, 15 and 13) I wondered if Sea World Resort would have much to offer them but I was wrong they had an awesome time. The rooms were spacious and very clean. I am looking forward to going back there (hopefully) soon.

Room Tip: I loved being in the Bay wing and having water view which we awesome both morning and night. It was...
