Almost everything...except wine glasses in the rooms for the adults! We stayed for 6 nights in August (off-peak season) and it was great. Customer service was great - the staff wore clothing that kids could connect with (Wally from Where's Wally, princesses, superheroes) and we as parents felt relaxed knowing this resort was all for the kids. The continental breakfasts... More

Paradise Resort has thought of EVERYTHING!!! It is totally amazing. The basic resort room was spacious with a bar fridge and a sink making it possible to "self cater" even though it was a hotel room which made a huge difference. You can hire items such as a microwave and a DVD player which is handy and rooms are serviced... More

It really is "heaven for kids", not so sure about "paradise for parents" though - wine glasses in the room wouldn't go amiss! I think a 3 night stay might be optimum as you cannot check in till 2pm & then even if you are aiming for that the traffic in Surfers Paradise will delay you, so by the time... More

We stayed in family room 1210. The room was clean and tidy. The hallways however are too dark. My daughter loved the kids club. As she has severe allergies I was concerned about sending her, however, after speaking with Heather I had no concerns. They went above and beyond so that my daughter would fit in. The continental breakfast had... More

You only go here for one reason, you have kids. They loved it, from the primary colour bunk beds to the impressive pool area to the ice skating. The cons: pretty basic rooms, no scope for self catering unless you've packed a picnic set. You have to pay for wifiLimited food options for vegetarians, what was available was pretty average....

Really great place to base the family out of to do the fun parks and what they have to offer. Great pool area with plenty of things to keep the kids assumed whist reading a book and having a beer. The rooms arent astoundingly upto date, but then it isnt a 5 star either. They did have everything you need... More

Stayed for 3 nights, as it was not a school holiday period it wasn't too busy, I'm guessing it would be crazy at peak times. Water facilities were great, don't wear good bathers in spa as they will fade but there is a sign warning you of this. Resort room (1queen, 1single, 1 trundle) was dated and very basic but... More

Stayed at Paradise Resort again for the third time. We love this place. It's reasonably priced and we took advantage of the $400 resort credit special offer which meant that our dinners were paid for. My daughter cried the night before we left because she loves the kids club. There have been several additions to the place since we last... More

After reading some of the online reviews I had some reservations on what our week at the Paradise Resort was going to be like. Here are my thoughts. Yes the décor and look is outdated and in need of a bit of a make over however we thought it was very clean and comfortable. Kids don't care about décor!! It... More

Apart from having to pay internet in our rooms and paying for breakfast (after being told it would be free over the phone only to discover it is continental breakfast in the morning with no hot food), the housekeeping is dirty. Our dirty coffee mugs were not replaced when our rooms where cleaned. I understand that those things happen, but... More
