We stayed for 4 nights, 2 adults and 2 children. The room had 2 double beds and was very small , not the standard size room to accommodate 4 people in a 4 star resort. We were very disappointed. Very limited toiletries, 1 sample of each, shampoo,conditioner and shower gel to share.. The location is great if want to go...

At the beginning of this month myself and my little family stayed at the Seaworld Resort on the Gold Coast, it was our second time this year, always greeted with big smiles from all the staff and always farewelled with the same enthusiasm, the rooms are a decent size and very clean, the food is reasonably priced and always fresh...

Would recommend this to any family for a fun and convenient location to stay at the Gold Coast. Easy access to the Sea World park through the shop near the foyer. The only thing I would do differently is to definitely hire a car next time, as the cost of getting to the other theme parks became costly through the...

SeaWorld on the Gold Coast is a good destination for families. Half decent sized rooms with minimal amenities, so be prepared to eat out or enjoy take away for dinner. Resort pool water way too cold even for summer.

Thanks cherie184 for your feedback, our Resort pool is heated all year round, disappointing to read that you felt it was too cold. We do have a Japanese Restaurant, our main Shoreline Restaurant and our Lobby Lounge which all offer different menu's. Sorry if you felt there was not enough choice for you.

So I didn't know anything about the resort before or stay and had pretty low expectations to avoid being disappointed. We stayed as part of the "Red Hot" deal which meant or room was fairly inexpensive considering it included unlimited theme park entry which was the reason for our trip to the Gold Coat so very with it for us....

I've stayed many times now. The rooms I've had are great (premium rooms). The food is delicious from all the dining choices, including room service. 99.9% of the staff are the nicest you'd ever meet, right down to the lovely cleaning staff. My lower rating this time is solely down to the way I was spoken to by Kyah on...

We recently stayed five nights in a single room with a theme park package. 2 adults and 2 kids. I was apprehensive, but found the resort to be great for families with young kids. Lots of fun. This is a family resort. Our room had 2 double beds - it was advertised as suitable for 4. Our kids shared a...

Thanks Ashley for your review, great to hear that you had a good time and enjoyed your family time at Sea World Resort, agree it can get a little crazy in the main Shoreline Restaurant during busy times, indeed we have lots of excited children staying here.

We got such a good deal - three nights accommodation + unlimited entry into three theme parks + loads of useful discounts for $750 - so in light of this I didn't really have high expectations for the resort. This is an offer that is extended regularly by the way. I was so pleasantly surprised. Great service from the moment...

Just a lovely setting, feel, and breezes. Great service, house keepers, restaurants, transport, location, just can't fault this place for a family getaway. Access to SeaWorld is super easy and being right next door makes it so stress free to get home too!

This was our fourth stay at the Resort and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. The Resort caters well for young families and everything is convenient. Though, I probably wouldn't stay here if I didn't have a young family. Some tips, look for a deal (we had a webjet deal which included theme park tickets and discounts), have your own...
