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.

Truly a 5 star+ experience for Buffet Breakfast at Citrique yesterday morning. Have been a number of times before and it just gets better and better. Food so fresh and tasty and beautifully displayed, and such variety. And service professional, warm and prompt. Love the...detail of the décor eg Gluten Free signage incorporated into fixture. I had the pleasure of working for ITT Sheraton/Starwood/Marriott for the majority of my career, and I have had the privilege and pleasure of experiencing many of the group’s hotels and brands and JW Marriott Gold Coast - and breakfast at Citrique - are definitely right up there. I love this hotel (which was transformed in 2020/2021 from a Marriott to the Luxury brand JW Marriott) and look forward to returning again and again.More

The breakfast buffet and seafood buffets are both scrumptious and the service impeccable but the highlight of eating at Citrique was our a la carte meal that we reluctantly had, because the seafood buffet dinner was not offered on Monday night. It was quite possibly...the best meal we have ever had. Everything was so beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Highly recommendMore

We first ate here dinner al carte. I didnt realize it was a set menu that you pick from a few dishes. I didnt like anything on the menu so I asked if I could have the childrens salmon. The salmon was awful , it...was so dry. We then went to dinner on the friday night seafood buffet now that was an improvement. It had everything. Well worth it.More

We visited for their New Year's Eve seafood buffet ($189pp) and their standard seafood buffet on the 2nd January ($129pp). The food was outstanding on both visits, with so much choice of cold seafood and hot dishes! Our second visit felt a bit rushed, our...reservation was for 7.45 (and the booking said until 10.15) but they started packing up at 9pm and stopped taking orders for more drinks etc. Our experience on New Year's Eve was much better although more busy.More

We absolutely loved the buffet! What made it all the more special was Leandro. I have never experienced such professional service and genuine care being a guest before. I highly recommend and I truly hope Leandro understands that he made our night.

For a top notch hotel, right at the top end of the price range, they made me the absolute worst omelette I have ever had. How can a 5 star hotel get this so wrong. The magnificent waitress Giovanna was so nice and apologetic and...immediately asked if I would like it replaced after I had only had two bites. Unfortunately time was an issue so I left hungry. Stunningly bad food, but stunningly good service.More

This is our 5th visit to the seafood buffet over the last 6 years when we have been on the Gold Coast. I will start with the positive, our waiter, Giovanna was 1st class and attended to us with professionalism and care. The negatives, $15...2-3hr parking.I think it reasonable to expect free parking when you are paying $300 for a meal. When I booked our seafood buffet dinner via phone, I was not advised there was a 1.5hr time frame, we were advised on arrival. Although we were not hurried by our wait staff, we were aware of the time frame and could not relax knowing we had to leave. I was not told the price was $149pp (usually $129) because of Chinese New Year, again we only found out when we got the bill. The buffet did have a selection of seafood and other choices, however it was certainly not as good as previous visits and definitely not worth the money. We were very disappointed and will not be going back. Will not be back.More
