“Just loved the childminding.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

We stayed for 5 nights at paradise resort, for a good price. Our kids, 2 boys aged 2 and 4 loved the kids club. We loved the fact that we could then have some time to ourselves. Our littlest one was not old enough for the older kids club, but they allowed big brother (4) to stay with him in the younger childrens room. They wanted to be together. Room was pleasant enough. I think for the price was paid, you wouldn't expect much more. Also manages not to put too big a dent in family budget. Well located, can walk to most things, or get a transfer for theme parks. We will return.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

The staff we came in contact with were fantastic! approachable, helpful, and friendly. The facilities offered also fantastic and great for children 9 and under. The Buffet Restuarant (Sinbads) was great and handy if don't know where to dine or too tired to go anywhere, yummy food and wide variety to choose from at a reasonable price. Pancake machine was a hit for our family!! I was however a little disappointed in the room (for the price we paid) it is in need of an upgrade and a good clean!! in corners, walls, drains, the carpet needs shampooing or something and bathroom needs attention its old and worn out grouting was disgusting. Walls are thin so noise from hallway doors slamming, kids screaming in hallway, was an issue if wanting nana nap during day, not sure if would want to be there when busy!

Paradise Resort was the perfect place to stay for our first ever family holiday , From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome , the room was lovely and clean and very child friendly.
The service at all the restraunts, bar and reception were amazing and staff were always more than happy to help out with any problems we had .
The Kids Club was just fantastic , our kids could not wait to go there ,they made numerous friends and loved the Staff, which gave my husband and I time to relax and enjoy the holiday aswell. The kids also spent much of their time in the pools and on the water slide.
We found the hotel was situated in a great location only a five minuite walk to Cavil Ave and not a long bus trip to theme parks .
We look forward to visiting Paradise Resort again soon !!

We stayed there from 22-28 August and can say that we enjoyed our holiday but have to agree with a few of the other reviews that it is a bit run-down. The beds were a bit lumpy and uncomfortable with my husband and I both experiencing discomfort when trying to get up in the mornings. The restaurant, Sinbads, is definitely NOT value for money and we only ate their once (AUD47 for two adults and a 2 year old and we only had two pieces of toast and some bacon and eggs) though GD's Express (which we had on our last night) was great value for dinner - about AUD45 for two adults and a 2 year old and we had a pizza, risotto, sausages/mash/salad and two herb and garlic breads which were in fact pizzas!)

The staff at the Discovery Desk were extremely helpful all the time. A bit disappointing that on the day we checked out the reception staff were directing us to a pick up spot for our shuttle around the side of the hotel instead of offering to call the shuttle service to confirm pick up location. Lucky we stayed at the front of the resort in the lobby because
we would have missed the shuttle otherwise.

One thing I found disappointing was that we were not directed to the location of the kids playground when we checked in - which is out the front doors and left. They have orientation at 4pm each day but we did not check in until about 6pm so did not have the opportunity for orientation.

The rooms were ordinary and have to agree about the wiring under the bedside table. We ended up piling stuff in front of it so our 2 year old wouldn't be tempted to 'explore' them. Another thing that may have been good would be to group families together with similar age children as we seem to have mostly singles or couples staying at our end of the resort (other side mind you and not close to the pool/playground) which may not have been pleasant for them when our 2 year old decided to run through the corridors talking extremely loudly early in the morning!

Our stay was pleasant but I don't know if I'd stay here again.

Kids had a great time at the kids club, with the activities and the pool. Was close to everything, Great service at reception very helpful. was not impressed with the food, very expensive and not worth the money. And was not happy about the movies on tv costing $15.00. while in the spa i had my brother and his boyfriend came to visit, we were all in the spa, Not very gay friendly at all. would not recommend this to my friends and family as 80% of them are gay

We holidayed in the Gold Coast for only a weekend and had the best stay at Paradise Resort.... Travelling with 3 kids, they were well accomodated for and didn't want to leave. The staff were accomodating, helpful and friendly.... The kids loved the pools and even I enjoyed lounging poolside and listening to the great gentlemen sing all afternoon... Now that was a holiday. We had a big family which required two rooms and the interconnecting room was great! we will always stay with Paradise and are already planning our next trip! Really satisifed also with other things to do.... Bar, restaurants, shops, internet!! It's everything and more :)
