I stayed at Royal Pines last week for four nights during our conference held at the property. I was really pleased with my room. Nice and spacious. The bed and pillows were awesome! The room was very clean on arrival and serviced very well each day. My only disappointment is that a staff member working behind the hotel bar sent... More

Genuinely welcoming staff, nothing is to much trouble, so many activities for the kids to do. Delightful food and if you have the budget, Onespa was a great way to get relaxed. It really was surprising that ALL the staff were so nice! When you have two young kids in tow it generally doesn't bring out the best in staff.

The RACV knows how to operate a Resort from the friendly staff when you book in to the fantastic well appointed rooms with great views over the Gold Coast. I had a easterly facing room and the views at night made it that much more special. If you had children they wouldn't get bored as there was plenty of activities... More

We attended a conference and booked some extra nights here. We have stayed here previously and had booked a Spa Suite, as they are very comfortable. The beds are great and the room is spacious. The cleaning however leaves a bit to be desired. The bathroom wall behind the shower had a lot of mould and so did the spa... More

I could tell you about the super speedy but not sickly elevators, the beautiful rooms; fully appointed with the bonus of free wi-fi, the well lit, big & super clean bathroom, with a bath. The cute little balcony (we had mountain view) which overlooked the pool. The very yummy & reasonably priced late night room service we enjoyed. The deal... More

I stayed here for a big conference in August & highly recommend it. The conference food was fantastic & the staff were always helpful. Room service meals were large, on time & very reasonably priced. The rooms felt more spacious than most hotel rooms & I loved the giant windows looking out to the hinterland. Arakawa restaurant was an entertaining... More

Attended a conference with work. Rooms are great, bed comfortable, and really nice set up as far as pool/gym/conference facilities go. However, it is in the middle of nowhere, not even a 7Eleven within reasonable walking distance. The restaurant and bars are good - and room service is reasonable.

very nice location - lots of activities around the facilities - great choice of restaurants within the complex fantastic views of the grounds - Stayed for a conference and spent a lot of time networking in the bar and just hanging out on the seating provided catching up - the pool area and garden created a lovely relaxing atmosphere

The RACV Royal Pines is a nice, well appointed hotel with large comfy rooms and great sporting facilities. Unfortunately it is a long way from anything else! The hotel have a $5 per trip shuttle, and taxis are available (but expensive) to get you downtown, but if you intend going any further afield you will definitely need transport.

We have stayed many times before, and we have never been disapointed. Our recent stay was just as we expected, perfect. The Hotel was very busy with guests yet check in was easy and fast. Our room was perfect, we couldnt find a fault. We have stayed in many, many hotels and resorts, but Royal Pines is our favorite. We... More
