Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were surprised to find that the MVCI accommodation was part of the JW Marriott Hotel … quite a bonus from our perspective. We had a two bedroom unit on 17th floor that was very spacious and had amazing views. We stayed here for a week with our son and his partner and it was of the highest MVCI standard. Unlike most properties, daily visits from housekeeping were provided. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of places on site to eat … our favourite was Citrique … and plenty of places in Surfers Paradise itself. The Lobby Bar was our regular haunt for incidental drinks and light meals. We didn’t have much time to use the pools as we found a huge amount to do around the Gold Coast area … however, the pools were great and we managed a few dips … and visits to the Pool Bar! Service was of the usual excellent standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Holly on front desk was very helpful. There was plenty of onsite parking but, of course, it was pricey as usual!?!

The view was stunning, the swimming pool was marvellous, staff were so friendly. If you are fussy about bathroom as it might be a bit dated, it’s really depends on each person. We didn’t mind at all, we loved every thing and had a wonderful time.

if you like a nice swimming/spa & gym facility, and also a special lagoon where you can snorkel to view some marine fishes, do consider this accommodation. was surprised that my package did not come with complimentary breakfast. During my 3-day stay, did feedback on the 1st day that the bathroom shower was leaking, and somehow the leak slipped out of the bathroom (and there were many black stains within the bathrooms), however, there wasn't any improvement from the hotel. From a 5-star hotel, was expecting to be given dental and shaving kits, but they do not have. Anyway, their staff had excellent services.

We booked a suite at the vacation club for a 3 nights spontaneous holiday. The suite is beautiful, spacious, well equiped - fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave, and utensils... more importantly, the view is good - ocean, river, and high-rises... beautiful views during the day and night. Parking on site is convenient. Location is wonderful too. We know we would be back.

Lovely location and had onsite parking. The room was great but could do with a update. When we arrived they had forgotten we had a third child with us so we had to call reception to get a roll out bed and extra towels etc. We also had to ask multiple times to get extra laundry sachets, dishwasher sachets, sugar as they didn’t seem to check things were used and needed replacing. It was great that it had a washer and dryer as with a family we did a couple of loads while there.

From the club point of view ....scammy, deceitful and takes your money with very little information...promises you the world and delivers a scam. Cold calling to draw you in to rubbish deals that are restricted or cost more than indicated and impossible to book.

Just had 5 nights at the Marriott with our children their partners and three very young grandchildren.From the moment we arrived nothing was a problem.Special thanks to Michael on concierge for helping us get us a fantastic shuttle driver (Jasmin) who we used a number of times over the stay.Our children had 1 bedroom deluxe suites yes the rooms are a little dated but are very clean(serviced daily).Our children had one bedroom deluxe suites which was ideal when the grandchildren needed a sleep.All our rooms had kitchenettes -microwave, dishwasher, good size fridge and washing machine/dryer.With very young children made it easier to keep breakfasts and evening meals in our rooms although we did have a couple of meals out.Pools are amazing spent alot of time swimming with grandchildren playing in the sand.Very happy grandchildren.Pool can be very busy on a Saturday. A great stay.

Pools were fantastic with a bar serving drinks around the pool with friendly staff. Spas were great one was hidden in the rocks near where there is a whirlpool. View overlooking the pools and with a sea view from the 15th floor was amazing. Staff were fantastic everywhere except the breakfast buffet. Dave at the front door made our holiday more enjoyable with his friendly hellos and tips for where to eat. Went above and beyond with his service. Was not happy with the 4 o’clock check in. Was not told of this until after I had booked flights. Arrived there at 10 am. Was told they would try and get us in earlier and they would contact us when it was ready. We could use the pool and facilities. After getting up at three in the morning to catch flights we were pretty tired. Went back at 4:10 after no contact but our room was ready. Room safe was not working and the shower door would not shut. If it wasn’t for Dave at the front door, the amazing view and the fantastic pool area would have rated less stars.

Got to the hotel at 6.30 pm room not ready, waited for room then got given a key went to room & unmade bed, TV on & glasses etc around room. Went back were given another room key, had a shower as desperately wanted to go for dinner & the run down bathroom had a long black curly hair on the shower wall. My partner called & said we weren’t happy asked for a clean room but could we even pay more for a better not run down room. The request was ignored & given a key for a same type of room with a run down terrible bathroom. We were given a bottle of red wine(don’t drink wine) & breakfast but really just wanted to be in a room that you would expect from a 5 * hotel. We didn’t realise that booking the vacation club would be a 3* or less type of room, still paid nearly $1200 for 2 nights. Going to spend the day by the pool as it is lovely. We have stayed before years ago but we won’t be back very very disappointed.
