Great Family Holiday
We had an amazingly time and the staff were fantastic. The kids did not want to leave and want to go back ASAP. Only down side was one child had a fold up bed which she said was very uncomfortable. I think if you are booking for 4 people then they should be real beds not fold up.

Not worth for what I paid for
Very poor in room condition. Air-cond is falling apart, TV remote not working, latch lock breaking off from the sliding door to balcony. Lots of tour groups which ruined so call family friendly setting.

Great for over 5's, loved some parts, other not
The resort is as I expected from reviews, very old and quite run down, as they are currently constructing a new appt style building next door with another 3 to go to replace the resort. The reception and housekeeping were all very nice as are the restaurant/bar and shop staff. The mimi mart is great as has everything and is relatively inexpensive. The pool bar/restaurant is also quite good, although there is a very scant breakfast menu. The activities on offer vary from day to day and we just didn't have time for them all. The first 2 days were really good, my son loved the kids club, 6yo, and my daughter loved the crèche her first time, the second time I felt really hesitant in leaving my daughter, all different staff, and then I had some unpleasant discussions with the crèche manager who spoke to me as though I was a child and was deprecatory and really just rude, twice! I did speak to the asst manager on duty who tried to make it right by offering me an additional free crèche session when I still had one to use (???) So I didn't put her in at all after that. It really soured our stay which was a shame as I had extended it as we had been having such a nice time. Most people I met were from Qld or Brissie having a quick getaway and were all really lovely. There was no rough or drunken behaviour, it was really a nice crowd. Additionally some people came into our room with room cards, I really scared them and freaked us out a little too as the baby was asleep. It was strange,

Not so good.
The water slides are great for small kids. The rooms are old. The carpet was very worn. The main pool is small and over crowded. Parking cost $15 extra and the icescating is another $20 per kid. Considering we payed nearly $400 a night I would have expected more. Friendly staff thought.

Great for Families
My only negative is the rooms seem a little outdated but overall it was a great place to stay. My 5yo son loved all the things to do at the resort, he wish we could have stayed longer. Good location near the beach, public transport and close to Surfers Paradise.
