Stayed for a week and the hotel really is a gem. Clean room and open spaces. Reception is warm and welcoming. Will come back next month with friends and family for a reunion at nearby hotel. Well done. Hope to get an upgrade next visit.

From the moment we arrived at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, everything was top-notch. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite with a beautiful bottle of champagne sent to celebrate a birthday. Breakfast at Citrique was nothing short of perfect. They didn't have the cereal we eat the first morning, so they went out and bought a big box of it for us to have during our stay. Compliments to Khaled, Ann and Gina for exemplary service, setting a standard for hospitality.

It has been over a year ago since my stay at this hotel but they would not stop hounding me with their telemarketing calls! They have absolutely no respect for the protection of your personal details and for your privacy. This week alone, I have received 3 unsolicited calls from their Vacation Club agents and to each of them, I have told them to stop calling me!

My family & I had a wonderful time and would recommend Surfers Paradise Marriott & Spa, the staff are super friendly & helpful, The Accomdation very comfortable, we ate at the restaurant, had coffee & drinks at the bar, food & cocktails near the pool outdoor area (by the way is amazing) it was all excellent, I had a memorable birthday and can’t wait to go back

We have just returned from 9 nights at this hotel and had a wonderful time. The saltwater pool is incredible and definitely makes the hotel. The service was 5 star with every staff member very pleasant and helpful. The food was good although did not try the seafood buffet. We got a great rate as stayed over 7 nights but would have been even better if breakfast was included. The rooms were comfortable and clean although a little worn were all we needed with myself and 2 children. Large bathroom and closet and a balcony to sit on were all lovely. We were upgraded to a ocean view and stayed in a studio room which was still spacious and enjoyable and we were very grateful for the upgraded view. The only negatives I have for the hotel are the doors which do not block out hallway noise so we had to move rooms as were kept awake by the continuous open and closing of the ice room doors for the first night. But once at the end of the hallways had no issues but could still hear any voices or doors in hallway. And the lack of shade at the beach pool without having to pay a fee for a cabana is also concerning considering the sun safety message and how hot the sun can be. Overall an enjoyable stay and would recommend for any families !

Nice Gold Coast accommodation for everyone, new renovations have made it very comfortable and great restaurants. The pool is amazing with the fish and you can go snorkelling in the pool which is lovely for the hole family. Great pools for kids

Reading some of the other reviews, they are either very picky or just had a rare bad experience at this hotel because based on our stay (2 adults + 4 yr old boy) for 4 days, it was fantastic. First, the saltwater lagoon pool, it didn’t disappoint! The fish were amazing and our 4 year old absolutely loved spending time there, but also the other pool with the slide and waterfall were also fun. The buffet or Japanese restaurant, can’t comment as we didn’t dine there but the Sunday arvo BBQ at Chapter & Verse was so good. $15 for Chicken, Beef or Lamb wraps with your choice of salads. $6 coronas and I think cheap Espresso Martini’s. SUGGESTION, get the lamb so juicy and well cooked yum! We also had dinner there and ordered too much so asked to the pizza in a box which they were happy to oblige. The pool snack bar was OK for the kids but I would avoid it personally except for getting ice cream and drinks. The service was top notch!! Nothing was any trouble. The executive house keeping person even called and asked if the housekeeping was up to standard. The room was nothing flash but was fine. I mean how many hours do you spend in your room on a holiday? As long as it was comfortable and everything worked, right? TIP we found a cute little neighbourhood cafe called Bumbles, an easy walk from the hotel along the river. Great for breakfast! What else........ even the Wifi works perfectly! Thanks for a great stay

My wife and I recently stayed for 5 nights here and had a very pleasurable experience. We don't often stay in hotels of this size (preferring smaller more intimate experiences) but we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The absolute highlight was the quality of service displayed by all the staff. Marriott management should be very happy as their staff were excellent right across the board. We found our room to be of a high standard and certainly enjoyed the first rate breakfast that was provided every day. The one part of our stay we were not really happy with was the Seafood buffet at Centrique restaurant. We celebrated our Wedding anniversary dinner here and found it very underwhelming and certainly not worth the excessive price tag involved. Again despite our displeasure at the quality of the buffet our waitress was once again faultless and did everything in her power to make the night better for us.

Arrived late mid week and was greeted with a smile Check in was fast and efficient. Up to my room it was clean and comfortable. Slept well loved the pillows! Had the breakfast each morning and again everything was done with a smile. I will be back!!

I stayed at the Marriott Surfers Paradise for a conference and couldn't fault the level of service during the stay everything was perfect Food choices and quality of food great Bar with outside area great for relaxing The rooms were comfortable and spacious and plenty of wardrobe space The location was central to Surfers Paradise for both entertainment and shopping Angela
