“Great value & great fun!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Really nice place to stay, very easy to find and the room was clean & welcoming! We had a ball! Would recommend this resort to anyone wanting to getaway! The only thing I could pick on was the buffet was $74???? OMG!!! That's crazy, but everything else was amazing!

This resort is just amazing, and so convenient with the theme park at your door step. Then there are eateries in the resort, entertainment, shops and the pool area - just perfect, add the luxury of some pampering and the kids have their own club !! Could not fault this resort. It just had everything you could want in the one place. Highly recommended for a family with children. I loved that we could extend our check out. The resort is clean, fresh and soo peaceful - which surprised me because of how big it is. The highlight for the children is definitely the SpongeBob sound/light show in the evening by the pool. The room service of it being cleaned each day, with the beds made and the towels being replaced with fresh ones. Amazing ! Would now not stay anywhere else. 10/10

Room Tip: Any room is a good room !

First time I stayed here with family and will be the last, it was terrible. I left jewellery behind in room 3 weeks ago after being told they would post it to me in the meantime they have lost it no one knows where it is still waiting to track it down. Rooms were ok the only advantage is it's convenient for sea world next door. Buffet breakfast rip off, it was terrible hot food was cold, over cooked. Staff were rude, people everywhere pushing to get to food, they are only interested in the turnover not the customer service experience. Will never go back nor refer anyone to stay at that place - worst weekend ever!!!

The resort is wonderful regarding its room and water pool facility , except for the many ants on the kitchenette table in the early morning!
The winter value deal "red hot sale" would save us a lot of money while give us loads of fun, because the room charge includes 3-theme-park tickets for all room guests!
But the cafe has almost no Asian food for Asian tourists, while the buffet is quite expensive for a family.

Room Tip: bay view room is good

This was our third visit to Sea World Nara, the last two times our three children were very young, but now they are Ryan 22, Jake 20 and Emily 17, but we still enjoyed it. Being in a resort is great because the spa is so inviting, the pools were great, and being able to walk to Sea World any time was great. The rooms are a bit squashy, but it didn't worry us, more excuse to go to the lounge and listen to the piano player and have a cocktail. The staff were very friendly, which I really love. The Sea Food Extravaganza was to die for. My son lost his mobile, they found it and sent it back to Melbourne for us at no cost. Thank you Sea World. We went on a Cudo Deal, which helped the hip pocket a lot.

Room Tip: Being there twice I phoned and asked for a room close to the pool, you might have to pay a bit extra...

This was our second stay at Seaworld Resort. We had a great time. Its so family friendly, clean, wonderful staff and so much fun. Definately will be back. One of the best resorts we have stayed at!! The location is perfect for theme parks and to head into the strip to the restuarants and shopping.
