We travelled from the Sunshine Coast to meet some friends who stayed over at Royal Pines for a Mother's Day breakfast. Beforehand we rang and asked if a continental breakfast was available and at what cost. When we arrived we were told otherwise and asked to pay $45 each for a hot buffet breakfast. Purely as our friends were here...

The service was great. I love the rooms. The shower is the new style open shower, with one piece of glass, where the water runs out everywhere. Just needed to use a spare towel on the floor sadly. Comfy bed. Great linen. Great views. Good TV & mini bar. Expensive room service but yummy. Breakfast was everything you'd need and...

Stayed for a conference, not knowing much about it prior. If you're a golfer, and travelling with family, this place is a great holiday venue. Plenty of restaurant choices on site, although I could only call them good, as opposed to excellent. Tried all of them, except for the Japanese one. Hotel breakfasts were quite dear, but breakfast at the...

Visited hotel for 4 days as part of a conference group of 400+. Good venue, centrally located on the Gold Coast. Plenty of other activities, pool & tennis courts including a golf course which is a really tough lay out. Corner Room Spa suite was excellent.

Room was huge, clean beautiful with an amazing view. We had the corner spa suite. Spa could have been bigger but the view was great and the over all experience was good.

This has honestly been the best holiday I have taken to date! We were only there for about 3 days, but the staff made sure our stay was eventful and enjoyable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The RACV Royal Pines Resort stands at the centre of beautiful established gardens offering 331-stylish guest accommodation rooms and premium spa suites with expansive views of the hinterland, chic tropical pool, Gold Coast skyline or the golf course. RACV's flagship resort is a golfer's dream - offering a renowned 27-hole composite golf course and state of the art driving range, the course is proudly home to the Australian PGA Championship and Gold Coast RACV Ladies Masters. But if you're not into golf, never fear. Relax in the Day Spa, or grab a sun lounge by the outdoor lagoon pool, while the kids burn off energy on the pool's fun slippery slide or children's playground with jumping pillow, or have a hit of tennis on one of our five tennis courts. Time Out Adventures, our on-site adventure company, offers a great range of additional activities. Why not take a Segway Adventure Tour, walk on water in an Ozbobble, laugh yourself silly making a Bopping Heads music video DVD, or have a blast with Laser Clay Shooting. There's something for everyone at RACV Royal Pines Resort. ... more   less
