We had a basic Resort Double Room - it was comfortable enough but you could tell it was one of their unrenovated rooms by the condition it was in. We didn't spend too much time in the room - the kids loved the resort water park!! Our days were always full - visited Movieworld, Wet n Wild and Sea World....

If you are staying at Sea World Nara Resort you are able to check in and leave your bags until the room is ready. this enables you to utilise your pass as soon as the parks open. Guests carpark is always full and needs to be addressed.

Ordered overly expensive round of drinks from the bar. 40 minutes later no drinks. Asked for a refund and cancelled the drinks. Get your process right people! Hotel rooms are very average...good luck supporting the commonwealth games. Coffee was awesome though and the staff that delivered this were very professional, note they were different to the ones that took the...

Good to visit, especially the dolphins. Wasn't keen on the seal show, but they were cute. Heaps of food stands, & little shops. The shark bay was interesting , Best part was the DOLPHINS Huge line up, to get into the place, especially when it's so hot

We visited SeaWorld resort mid December. 2016 We have stayed here several times before. But after this stay we won't return I'm afraid. We stayed in a park deluxe queen room. Which has been renovated since our last stay. We found the room to be very noisy ( we where on level 2 ) every morning around 5.45am we could...

I went on a family with holiday with 9 adults and 3 kids and this place had everything we could want to handle that. Breakfast was so good! Casual meals in the cafe was an easy option and there was always a spot convenient for a massage on site. The pool and play area was in excellent condition and had...

Plenty of car parking available. Quick line cues if you need to purchase park tickets. Massive amount of free and paid activities to kill your day. Choice of many food stalls and cold drink stands. Plenty of shops to buy momentous. Will visit again.

This hotel is exactly what it says it is: a family friendly hotel with special entry into Seaworld. You are paying for the early entry into Seaworld, and for the kid friendly pool, water park and nightly dance show. If you have children, they will love it. Otherwise, unless you really like Seaworld, you're probably best to stay someplace else...

We had planned a whole day at Sea World but due to rain we arrived there at three. We decided to go as we bought a two day ticket for another 10 dollars which entitled to us to a ticket to movie world. Overall SeaWorld was great but not fantastic we have been to Ushuka marine world in South Africa...

We stayed before out of season and enjoyed here but had a different experience this time in peak season. First our booking didn't include access to the park which was the point in staying here and wasn't made clear in the booking with Wotif. Wasn't the resorts fault but they need to force the room resellers to accurately describe what...

Thank you CaptainMajorMajor for your feedback, doesn't sound like the best experience. I presume the heat must have effected the pool quite significantly, we follow strict water quality procedures at the Resort, sorry if this inconvenienced your family that day. I will make sure the rest of the team see your feedback regarding noise and service.

Take your family on a journey of discovery and adventure at the award-winning Sea World Resort. There's so much to explore including an aquatic adventure playground, cuddles with your favourite Nickelodeon characters including the awesome new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and a fun filled Kid's Club. Go on a behind the scenes sneak peek of a dolphin training session with Sea World Resort's exclusive Dolphin Discovery Presentation, free when you stay two nights or more. It's a wonderful experience the kids will never forget. Then join everyone's favourite sponge and his nautical friends in your own underwater adventure at the amazing 'SpongeBob SplashBash' aquatic adventure zone. Your kids will adore the bright and colourful water-play areas themed around SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick, and Squidward, plus a few jellyfish of course. And just try and keep the kids away from the spectacular nightly light show at the musical water fountain. Home to four restaurants and two bar areas, you'll never have to leave the comfort of the Resort. Dine on at the Shoreline Restaurant and experience an amazing new menu that features live interactive cooking, and enjoy delicious Japanese cuisine at Hatsuhana, all family friendly of course.

“as we had a family holiday it would have been better if the 2 adjoining rooms all had Queen? / king beds as the adults didn't fit in beds with 1 child sleeping with them so the grandparents ended up sleeping with the kids! a very family friendly holiday. Some cooking facility would have been perfect such as a toaster and microwave to heat the little ones snacks!”
