Sea World Hotel is a monorail trek away from the park and is great place to stay.. The best part is gaining entrance early in the morning before the crowds to get on the rides.. The hotel rooms are on par average but serviced well and surround a very nice outdoor pool area.. I always do enjoy this hotl..

We took the grandchildren again, this time they were a little older and we all had a great time. The service was great, the resort was beautiful, the kids had fun with the spongebob splashbash aquatic adventure playground, the light show and of course sea world. The restaurants were great as usual, especially the Japanese Hatsuhana we ate there about... More

There is no doubt that our family had a great time at Sea World. The park is fantastic, and we came on a deal that allowed additional access into the park, and to Movie World as well (which is pretty cool). I would stay here again, mainly out of convenience for it's proximity to Sea World and other Gold Coast... More

The first day the room was not ready and we were not advised of time room was available after coming from the Sunshine Coast. There was no hot water upon entry to room and into the early evening. Considering we booked during the winter month I would see hot water a necessity.

We really enjoyed our stay, great food the restaurants have lots of variety and a fabulous buffet breakfast. The beds are really comfy & rooms very clean. The staff are very helpful and very friendly. We had a great time at sea world and got some great deals on the other theme parks. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the resort with 3 teenage children, and whilst the roons were clean and fresh, and the theme park is lovely, the food services were completely unsuitable for teenage kids and extremely expensive. The cafe, room service, and lounge all had the same menu with very limited choices, and more akin to fine dining which might suit adults,... More

We loved every minute of our recent stay at the Sea World Resort. We felt like we were the only ones staying there, the staff treated us so well. The room was beautiful and over looked the pool area. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.
