Had a good day out and pretty standard for a Sea world resort. On the downside we had pre booked a family swim with dolphin package which was more of a float with dolphins and didn't live up to the price we paid. The monorail was broken and the sea lion show had closed for refurbishment. We came across 1 water drinking fountain in the whole park.
On a positive note the staff were friendly and the various animal attractions were good. Seen it, done it, wouldn't rush back.

I bought this Jetstar holiday to stay at Sea World Resort with free access to 4 theme parks. Resort guests were treated as VIP to a dolphin show before Sea World is open to public. Excellent value and have no regret. Will consider similar holiday in the near future.

We stayed for 5 nights on a deal that included unlimited theme park entry. LOVED every minute of our stay and will be back. From the moment we checked in till the moment we checked out every staff member we encountered were so friendly and accommodating. The resort is beautifully maintained, gorgeous gardens and pool area. Easy access to parking if you hire a car. The food was great and good value. Comfortable rooms - older and basic but clean. Overall a great holiday.

Spent 5 nights here with our adult children and grandchildren. The resort has a great pool / water area. Very friendly resort for children. The buffet breakfast and dinners were enjoyed by all the family and again very child friendly offering food for both adults and kids. Rooms comfortable but probably need an update in certain areas like bathroom. Easy access to Sea World via monorail or back gate. Lobby bar area pleasant place to sit and enjoy a drink and a snack. Would definitely return with the grandchildren.

Thank you for your feedback, glad to hear that you all had a brilliant holiday, we are aware that some of our bathrooms are getting a little tired and are certainly on the list for future refurbishments.

Got 5 nights with 4 people for $1200, so works out around $300 each person plus with free theme park tickets for Seaworld, wet n wild and movieworld for the duration of the stay (this was half the regular price because we purchased a groupon coupon). Was a great stay, room service was great as beds were made well and towels are constantly replaced every day. Pool was great too with a hot tub, waterfall and kids area. Seaworld is also in the backyard, just as a side note.
