Overpriced and very disappointing. Revolting food. Depressed looking animals. Half of the attractions closed. Unacommodating, grumpy staff. Pretty basic, unimpressive shows. I had a half decent icecream.. that's about it I'm afraid. Won't return.

Everything is set up for families - it makes for a fabulous easy break and you don't even need to leave the resort and park! Lots of like minded people for our son to play with and make friends. The staff are so accommodating and lovely.

So we bought one of those scoopon deals with 5 nights accommodation and entry to 4 parks for four people for $1000. Great family vacation for all the inclusions. SeaWorld resort itself is quite large, rooms are a little dated, but clean and tidy. No microwaves or toasters in the room, tiny minibar. Maybe bring an esky and think about...

The Resort had wonderful staff / team members,from check-in to check out. All were willing to help at any hour, day or night! The facilities could do with minor upgrades for comfort and reliability. The Spa Bath in the pool area was continuously tripping out.... The ibis birds were a nuisance by ways of going through left over scraps left...

The resort was great. Lots of activity around the resort. The pool area was wonderful for kids. Food at the resort was out of our price range for everyday eating, but we enjoyed picking up pizzas, eating noodles in a cup and cereal for breakkie ! Wonderful holiday destination.

The only disappointing part of the resort was the out of order part of the splash parks on 2/5 days. The house keerping were amazing as we had 6 children and a lot of cleaning required. The Park we wished that Buckeneer Bay was still in use as the younger children where limited as to where they could cool off...

Hello D2922LOchristinas, unfortunately we do have to close some areas of the Waterpark for maintenance and repairs from time to time. Our Housekeeping team do work hard to ensure our guests have a great stay.

Extremely Happy with the Sea World Resort Staff are friendly and helpful. Room was cleaned daily and the food was YUMMY. I would highly recommend this resort to all my family and friends for their next stay on the Gold Coast.

Third year in a row staying at the resort and although not as good as the previous two was still very happy with it. Would prefer the bay wing rather than the garden wing. Less noisy. Only issue on this visit was the housekeeping. Bed had a torn sheet on it until I mentioned it.

Take your family on a journey of discovery and adventure at the award-winning Sea World Resort. There's so much to explore including an aquatic adventure playground, cuddles with your favourite Nickelodeon characters including the awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a fun filled Kid's Club.
