My wife and I stayed at this resort recently and the location, room and service was excellent and very reasonably priced. We also dined at the Resort Restaurant and found the food and service to be of high quality.

Just spent 4 nights here, for the 3rd time and I thought it was time I wrote a review. I was on a conference with about 500 other people and my wife and son came along.

Stayed for just a night. Arrived late and left early but this hotel made an impression on me. Lovely, helpful staff, clean and not too pretentious. View over the golf course from 16th floor was nice. Bed was great and the bathroom modern and large. Lovely.

I have stayed for five nights at the Royal Pines at overall I was really satisfied. The hotel is well located and all nice spots at the Gold Coast are well reachable by car. I have not tested the Restaurants but the café has delicious coffees and sweets! The room was nice and clean, spaceous too. Free Wi-Fi works great!

What a great place to stay on a sporting tour with teenagers. The room was lovely and the view wonderful. So easy to check in and out. The kids enjoyed the access to the gym and pool. Buffet breakfast was provided as part of the deal and the food was great. Plenty of choices for fussy eaters.
