Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Overall stays were good but it's little pricey. The location is pretty near to Surfer paradise where strategic for some shopping and food or even nice beach. Further more we joined the Sea World Cruise for Whale watching where it was a pleasant one and the harbor is just 10min walk from hotel. However this Hotel does not provide toothbrush and comb hence tourist please remember to bring along this with you.

We had a ball. Took a vacancy overnight during the school holidays and the park was strangely quiet. Great service, food, amenities and theme park. My daughter was in heaven with the animals, rides and water park. We'll be back. For sure.

My husband and I recently holidayed at SeaWorld Nara Resort for the week with our 2 boys (2 and 6). I could not fault a single thing. The facilities and activities in the resort alone were enough to keep us entertained without going elsewhere. The pool and waterpark were one of the favourites, and the SpongeBob theme was a real hit with my boys.
The dining facilities and rooms were wonderful and my husbands favourite place was the gym which according to him was awesome. We loved being so close to the Gold Coasts main attractions and the fact the SeaWorld Theme Park was right on our door step was fantastic, especially as there was no travel at the end of the day with the kids.
I highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying at SeaWorld to definitely do so.
Also need to mention that the staff at the resort were also very friendly and extremely helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are very handy for families with small children.

We stayed here with our three children for one night. Took ages to book in and then we had to come back. Kids loved the pool area with the sponge bob slide area. Our room was excellent with a great view couldn't fault that at all. Not many food options that are affordable for kids we decided to get room service for dinner and breakfast. What we loved about staying here is that we were able to have a break from the theme park and go back later and we just walked back to the hotel at closing time. Kids were happy to have their photo with boots. Lobby lounge staff needs to improve with their customer service skills girls were complaining about another customer in front of me and took ages for a cappuccino. We will go back again with the kids good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of broadwater you won't be disappointed

We came here midweek out of season and had a fantastic time. My first impression at check-in wasn't that great because it seemed the very young staff weren't really trained well in customer service and it took ages to get our room ready but when we finally got the room it was clean, well laid out and modern. The best part about this resort is the amazing kids pool area with the fun water fountains and of course the fact that you can walk into Sea World Park within 3 minutes! There is also a very tall water slide which belongs to the hotel inside park that offers a great resting place after enjoying all the animals and shows. My 4 year old loved feeding the rays and dancing in the Dora show. The nice thing of being so close to the park is that you can always go 'home' for quick nap or swim and then come back to see more shows etc. You also have the advantage to join the early morning dolphin training show exclusive to hotel guests. The breakfast buffet was standard fare and overpriced but the Japanese restaurant served excellent quality food. You will have to book early to not miss out! We definitely would come back for another visit.

I stayed here for a friends wedding which was held in one of the conference rooms. We stayed 2 nights with the wedding party in joining rooms. Originally the bathroom light didn't work then the TV in the second room was broken (something to do with the connection) then the second night the same think happened to our TV. And we got rooms over looking a foot path not any kind of view. The food at the wedding was very plain buffet style with 2 mains and 2 sides with bread rolls and i know for the fact it cost the bride and groom ALOT of the catering.

the night before the wedding everyone had dinner in the main buffet dining room. my partner and i arrived late so we had already eaten and were charge because we were there.

We recently celebrated a family birthday at the Presidential Room at at SeaWorld Resort at the Gold Coast. It was just the right size, with a balcony overlooking the Broadwater, the view at sunset is spectacular. The chefs did an amazing BBQ buffet. The food was delicious, all the guests commented on it, as well as the staff and wonderful service from check in to check out. We had quite few guests come from interstate and they all loved the accommodation as well. It has recently been refurbished in fresh colours and a modern look. Thank you Event staff, Banquet staff and everybody. We had a wonderful experience and would recommend it to anyone!! Some of the guests also stayed on longer and went to the Seaworld Park as well....always a fun day!

Room Tip: The rooms with Broadwater views are especially nice!
