A lovely resort far from the maddening crowds. Beautiful picturesque setting. The villas are huge, and more like staying in a house. Very quiet, no road noise, you feel like the only one there. The pools were nice, but the waterfalls that the site emphasizes were not working, and my kids were looking forward to this - likewise with the sauna and steam room, which were all touted, by either not on, or available.
The kids found their beds quite hard. Other than this, a nice night away.

Thank you for your kind review of Royal Woods. Our team is pleased you enjoyed the serenity of the Resort as that is the experience we want our guests to have.

Our apologies that the waterfall feature of our pool area was not working during your stay. Unfortunately the pump had failed on the morning of your check-in and we could not get anyone out to fix it that day. It was repaired the next working day.

The steam room was working while you were at the Resort but we appreciate your honest feedback because it has highlighted an improvement we can make. To operate the steam room, the gold switch needs to be turned on by the guest. As this is not clearly indicated, we will put up a sign to ensure all of our future guests are aware of this. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

With the beds, it is difficult to get a mattress that suits everyone so we use firm mattresses and have thick mattress toppers available for anyone who likes a more cushioned sleep. We would be more than happy to put these on the children's beds for your next stay with us. Please ask when you make your booking and we will have it done before you check in.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the peaceful surroundings of Royal Woods Resort.

Royal Woods is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Surfers Paradise, it offers security and heaps of space to spread out and move. We had a 1 bedroom
that had more room than a suburban house, I cant imagine how large the 2/3 bedroom houses are. It would be fantastic for children with a large outdoor pool, and indoor pool for those rainy days. Also every house we have stayed in had a well equipped kitchen, dvd player and full ducted air conditioning in the whole house. It is SO quiet we have never been disturbed by other residences. Every morning we were greeted by native birds on our breakfast balcony. Everyone here works hard to make your stay quietly enjoyable.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms have better feel

Spacious rooms, gated property hence felt secure. Double garage with washing machine and dryer in the garage. We booked a 3 bed, 3 bath villa. We were given a breakfast basket as well which had plenty of cereals, bread, butter, jam, milk and juices. The services were great but would recommend them to update the decor as it looks a bit outdated now. Good location to be in Gold coast, not in the hustle and bustle of the city, will definitely need a car for travel. We would definitely recommend this place.

We loved staying here and will definitely be returning. The service was wonderful. It's gated so very safe and secure. Quiet and peaceful. Plenty of space in the rooms and close to everything. We loved the free board game and DVD hire. And the information folder in the room had everything we could possible need to be able to find restaurants, attractions and even in room masseuse. :)

Friendly service, great location for attending a nearby conference, large rooms, all the amenities a traveler could want for in a moderately priced location. The complex is secure and quiet. Should I need to stay on the Gold Coast again, I would look to return to Royal Woods Resort for another stay.
