I have stayed a few times on seperate occasions, the last was at Christmas time. It's a big beautiful resort with everything you need from delicious buffet and great restaurants for dinner, snorkelling with fish or swimming in the lagoon. Room and bathroom modern and comfortable.

I spent many summers here as a child so was wonderful to go back after all these years with my own family! The hotel is truly a wonderful family resort, the pool is amazing and service is top notch.

The location is a bit outside the central area of Surfers Paradise, but the 10 minute walk is pleasant enough, especially if done on the beach itself. The resort almost seems like an afterthought vs. the co-located vacation club. For example all the desks in the lobby say Marriott Vacation Club on them, and when I checked in I got... More

This hotel is one of the best I've stayed at on the coast. It's contemporary without being overly done. On check in they offer you a white chocolate ball sitting on a scallop shell looking like a pearl, or I guess more precisely like a scallop... nice little touches throughout the stay. The room decor could do with an update... More

I attended for a conference and didn't have much chance to use the resort facilities but I can see that you may spend some time within the facilities without needing to wander down to the real beach.
