Just spent a very pleasant 3 day period st the Royal Pines Resort at a conference. Excellent facilities, great choice of restaurants and friendly and efficient staff. I particularly liked the rural feel of the resort which provided a wonderful variety of wildlife and birdlife in the gardens. A great place for a conference!

This golf week for 4 couples was arranged some 10 months ago. I was put in contact with Abbey who runs group bookings ( I think) and between her and Sean, everything ran seamlessly; right up to our arrival, and then for the rest of the week. Our rooms were first class, golf organisation at 4 different courses absolutely perfect,...

My husband was a delegate on a conference and I went along to Royal Pines as a spouse. This allowed me time to really enjoy the resort and I was very pleasantly surprised.

myself and 5 girlfriends went to royal pines for our regular get together. We had the Hi Tea. Start with champagne then coffee or tea as well as a 3 tier stand of fantastic sandwiches, scones and petite cakes. Service was great, thanks to Janet our waitress. Great value $30.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The RACV Royal Pines Resort stands at the centre of beautiful established gardens offering 331-stylish guest accommodation rooms and premium spa suites with expansive views of the hinterland, chic tropical pool, Gold Coast skyline or the golf course. RACV's flagship resort is a golfer's dream - offering a renowned 27-hole composite golf course and state of the art driving range, the course is proudly home to the Australian PGA Championship and Gold Coast RACV Ladies Masters. But if you're not into golf, never fear. Relax in the Day Spa, or grab a sun lounge by the outdoor lagoon pool, while the kids burn off energy on the pool's fun slippery slide or children's playground with jumping pillow, or have a hit of tennis on one of our five tennis courts. Time Out Adventures, our on-site adventure company, offers a great range of additional activities. Why not take a Segway Adventure Tour, walk on water in an Ozbobble, laugh yourself silly making a Bopping Heads music video DVD, or have a blast with Laser Clay Shooting. There's something for everyone at RACV Royal Pines Resort. ... more   less
