We really enjoyed our stay, great food the restaurants have lots of variety and a fabulous buffet breakfast. The beds are really comfy & rooms very clean. The staff are very helpful and very friendly. We had a great time at sea world and got some great deals on the other theme parks. We will definitely stay there again.

We spent their for 2 Nights and 3 days. It was a breeze, enjoyable and highly recommended. we will definitely go back and stay for longer days. It is such a beautiful place and feel right at home. so many things to do plus the theme park is right into the heart of the city. One of the best experience ever.

Room Tip: Anything will do for me.

The best family oriented property I have even had the pleasure of staying at - we will be back!!!!!
The rooms were of good quality but it was more the amenities and access to the park that contributed to our stay and fro this we will definitely return.
Restaurant buffet for breakfast and dinner are recommended and a great will to fill up without pay the earth for food and drinks in the theme parks.

Room Tip: A 3rd floor room with view over pool or inlet would be great.

We stayed at the resort with 3 teenage children, and whilst the roons were clean and fresh, and the theme park is lovely, the food services were completely unsuitable for teenage kids and extremely expensive. The cafe, room service, and lounge all had the same menu with very limited choices, and more akin to fine dining which might suit adults, but definitely not older children. There was a tiny basic kiddies menu which would suit 5 year olds but not adequate for growing teenagers. The restaurant choices were Japanese or a buffet where children 14 and over were charged adult prices and again had absolutely no dishes that would appeal to most teenagers. So we essentially paid $300 for the kids to fill up on bread rolls! You also need your own car if you stay there as the shuttle bus cost us $80 a pop for a trip to another thene park and you need to catch buses into Surfers which are caught further down the road. Most things at the resort we had to discover by ourselves, as there was zero information about where anything was, provided by staff at check-in , and there was no infornation about the resort provided in the roons. Another disappointment waa the day spa. I had a massage and it was probably the worst massage I have ever had. The therapist did not listen to my request for a light pressure relaxation massage as I had a headache at the time and spent half the massage doing deep tissue and on areas I asked her not to, until I asked her to stop several times. So unfortunately, I would never recommend this resort.

We loved every minute of our recent stay at the Sea World Resort. We felt like we were the only ones staying there, the staff treated us so well. The room was beautiful and over looked the pool area. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Our 10 hour drive was worth every hour,our 3rd trip to QLD our 2nd staying at Sea World,like our last stay we chose to stay in a Deluxe view room,and like last time it was Fantastic!!! Right on the broadwater,looking out onto the beautiful water day and night is an absolute treat. We have 13 and 16 year old and we all love staying at sea world. The service is fantastic,rooms are spotless,nothing is too troublesome for the staff,we always enjoy the guests special dolphin show before the park opens. Next Year we will be back again staying at our Favourite place on the Gold coast - Sea World!!! Thanks for a great stay

Room Tip: Choose to spend that little bit more and get the Deluxe View room,fantastic views of the broadwater...

Had a lovely stay with extended family the kids loved the splash playground and enjoyed the kids club.the access to seaworld was easy and enjoyed the park 3 times.
Only rant would be about the cost of found at the resort with a family of 5'it was abit pricey.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view and with big family connecting rooms
