We booked an overnight stay in a Premium Broadwater suite, We were very pleasantly surprised by an upgrade to the Presidential suite. Room was fabulous, as was the view. Staff extremely friendly. Would definitely stay again.

We have stayed here twice recently in 2 of the room types. Once in the deluxe style and once in the premium. The premium was certainly more modern but I also found it had newer and more comfy beds. We have 2 young boys and get the rooms with the 2 double beds which are great. The pool area itself...

Rooms are tired and need of an upgrade. Breakfast and Buffet dinners are average and overpriced, our balcony faced a car park after spending money on an upgraded room. Pool area great for the kids, make sure you hire a car and venture out so you're not stuck paying through the nose on the average food. Staff very helpful though....

I would recommend to all families, from the room to the food and entertainment, everything was great value. The nightly pool entertainment is a memory that my little ones will keep for a long time, they already want to go back.

When we visit Sea World Resort it feels like going home to visit family and friends. It's my happy place where I can sit back and relax and get to spend some actual quality time with my kids and I get a break too! We can enjoy the tranquil surroundings and beautifully manicured gardens or sit by the pool and...

Now normally I remain optimistic when reviewing places I've been to, but Seaworld Resort on the GC is really a bit shabby and run down. It is actually rather expensive and considering that it is also a long way away from anything else, you are subject to the costs that they have their. Parking is an outdoors (unsecured) car park...

Stayed for 5 nights. Staff were friendly and the facilities were well maintained considering the age of the building. The free Dolphin presentation is amazing and the Spongebob light show was well attended by happy kids! Will definitely come back!

All four families thoroughly enjoyed their stay, we try and make it an annual event it would be nice to be recognised for this. Thoroughly enjoyed our time being placed in the recently refurbished rooms. Only negative was the de-function of the water park adjoining the hotel

“We stayed in the garden wing in a ground floor room. It was quite nice to have a large expanse of grass in front of our room and even though the resort was quite busy when we stayed, we found that there was never any foot traffic in front of our room and therefore it was quiet and peaceful.”
