“Enjoyed our time thoroughly”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The resort was great had plenty of facilities that we unfortunately ran out of time to explore! Room was comfortable and had great views of the pools and river. Kids loved there time at Sea world! And would have loved to go to Movieworld and wet n wild though we ran out of time. The cost for the room was more affordable than buying seaworld passes for the day. Great to stay with small children as you can come and go as to sea world and give the kids some time out.

We stayed their 4 nights and out of the 4 nights and 5 days the lift only worked for 1 day and was out of order for the rest of our stay which was really annoying with 2 kids up and down the stairs was not always ideal.

Overall experience was ok but i probably would not stay their again unless i got a really good deal. The hallway was dirty and from nowhere can you tell you were in a resort, especially that we stayed at resorts before and this is no where near that. It looked more like a 4 star motel. They desperately need to do makeover and at least vacuum the carpets every now and then which would be a good idea.

1. Staff was excellent and very friendly
2. Room was ok a bit below average, it was clean though so no complains
3. Room service ordered breakfast which was a greek omelette ( it was cold, chewy and overly priced). It costed us $40 for 1 omelette and 2 extra slices of toast with no beverages. A cafe on surfers paradise costed us the same amount for 2 serve of white tea 4 slices of toast, 1 vege omelette and 2 serve of scrambled eggs. So you can see the price difference and the breakfast was excellent with excellent and friendly staff at any cafe on surfers paradise.
4. They had dora in foyer the day we were leaving which made up for out trip as our daughter is a huge dora fan.
5. Seaworld is easily accessible through shuttle services which runs every 20 mins
6. Movieworld and Wet n Wild both are approx 20 mins drive from the resort
7. There are ample of eateirs near surfers paardise which is literally 10 mins drive from the resort
8. I would definitely recommend to rent a car so its easier to go around
9. They also have kids play area which is next door to seaworld entrance through the resort where kids can have a good play

Hope our review helps those who plan to take their families here..our overall visit was ok.

A great day at SeaWorld - not having to rush to see everything, and not having to drive home in the afternoon. Fresh sea air and relaxation. Pool area clean and refreshing - always great to take the family away for a couple of days.

Room Tip: Spend the extra few dollars for a room with a microwave/kitchenette

What a fantastic place to stay with kids. The Sponge Bob Light Show at 8:00pm every night and the heated swimming pool (+26C) were the most impressive things. The room was small but clean and we had our towels changed every day. With many specials and discounts that we got at check in, the whole experience was great value for money.

You have to love being able to stay overnight next to Seaworld at the Seaworld Nara Resort after spending a full day at the park. The best thing is you can check in early and while you can't go to your room, you can go straight into the park and see all there is to offer. After a full day on your feet, it is so relaxing to go back to the resort and to your room. The resort has a variety of eating places - all family friendly. The exceptional pool with kids play area including slide, dump bucket and pop up water spouts is excellent fun for the young and the not so young. We stayed in a water view deluxe room which was beautiful. The beds are comfortable and you can open your balcony door to get in fresh air if you choose. We stayed on a weekend that was fully booked and even though there was a lot of people in the property, it didn't feel like it was crowded or over-busy. I love a good weekend at the Resort with a full two days access to Seaworld with the family.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more for a better room and you won't be disappointed. The cheaper rooms are a bit tir...

We loved being 5 minutes walk from Seaworld so that we could head back to our room for short breaks when our 4-year old got tired.
Loved the swimming pool and splash play centre attached to the resort.
Service was, overall, excellent.
The only improvement would be some soundproofing between the rooms as we had some noisy neighbours and the breakfast was too expensive at $60 each

Room Tip: If you have kids, a room right near the pool would be ideal

All in all family had a great time, we stayed ten nights which was good as did not have to rush around. Ease of access to to seaworld park was awesome. We probably spent 2-3 full days in total in the park so much to see and do. Like all of the theme parks food way over priced but some smart packing of a backpack full of snacks etc is the way to go.
For the resort everything was good, food was ok, but buffet every night and expensive gets a bit much. We had a car so we could get out and eat elsewhere, a few good Chinese restaurants and other food outlets at reasonable prices 5-10mins away.
A must for children from 4 upwards, all the kids looked like they where having fun and so did we.
If you can get a deal well worth it.
