Surfers Paradise Marriott Hotel
We arrived in Surfer's Paradise yesterday afternoon after a 2 hour drive South from Noosa and quickly checked into the Marriot Hotel. Surfer's is the Australian equivalent to Blackpool, this is where the locals come on holiday and it's completely geared up for binge drinking (although as yet we've not really done that much of it here!) The weather …
... from the club than listen to this idiot. I had my Ipod on the highest volume but he still managed to break through it!
The next morning I went for a nice early morning swim then had a very productive day with Esther. We caught the bus to a walking track to the Forts and met two English guys on the way, Mark and Sammi. The best way to get around the island is to hire a car but you have to be 21. But the boys took us under their wing and we drove round the ...
Reading back on everything I posted about the night I forgot a few thugs of course. I always find it interesting how countries are different so here's some more differences. - in surfers there are cops and guards and such everywhere. There are a couple square blocks filled with all the bars and clubs which are all surrounded by the young crowd and cops. They have no tolerance for disorderly conduct and no ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa
We recently stayed at the Marriott for 3 nights in a Ocean View room on the 26th floor. I can honestly say that this hotel is the best.
I stayed at this hotel for work reasons (a conference) for two nights in September. I had one of the lower rooms and while the views were not fantastic, it did have a balcony that looked out over the pool area and part of Surfers Paradise. The room had two double beds in it and was quite spacious for one or two people. Fitting a rollaway in would have been ok but squishy. I think the beds and bedding are new (there was a big display in the foyer) and they were comfortable.
i stayed at the place a few years ago but still remember how nice it was. although not remembering the full story, i know that i loved it so much and to this day, remains my whole families faveourtie hotel.
service was great. the lagoon and waterfall was amazing and i loved looking at this fish and my younger sister was enthralled. the water slide as high on all of our lists and the rocks allowed us to play mermaids...(being 11 at the time.) the whole place had such a tranquil feel and i loved everything about it. if you do not stay at this hotel then i think ur missing out on a lifetime.
My husband and I have just returned from a 5 day break staying at the Marriott Resort in early June, generally a cooler time to visit but temperatures were still 21-24C and very pleasant. We had an enjoyable stay and enjoyed the hotel & its facilities and would recommend it to others.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in early April 2005 & it was just wonderful. Our room (2805) had an amazing view of the ocean & pools. The balcony was a little scary for those who are afraid of heights but you get used to it after a while. You could sit out there & enjoy a cup of coffee or a nice drink.
Was here from March 6 -12, 2005 and had an amazing stay - this Marriott certainly did impress!
They don't come much better than this!
Where to start. Spectacular lobbby with a sweeping grand staircase but still keeping the resort /beach feel about it. The best lobby bar I've ever been in. If you really want to spoil yourself, stop in here for high tea. Try the buffet both breakfast and dinner - sublime. The man made lagoon is truly spectacular complete with coral reef and tropical fish. You can go snorkeling and even scuba diving. Short walk to the awesome Gold Coast beaches. This hotel is true five star luxury of the most relaxing kind. Great for families and couples alike. I challenge anyone who stays here to say it wasn't simply brilliant.
We stayed at the Marriott Resort over Christmas. The hotel staff is friendly and was extremely responsive to our many requests for information on tours. They steered us in the right directions for our tours. The grand lobby is beautiful with a grand staircase as you walk in the entrance that seems to go on forever.
Room was great, service was great, pool area was sublime and the included buffet breakfast was superlative, This hotel is the duck's guts!
Ignore my unsophisticated vernacular; I've stayed at many a luxury hotel. This is one of those rare ones that was actually worth the money.Even bumped into Paul Hogan in the lift! (very friendly by the way)
I always wondered if there was a place that I would stay on holidays that would get the perfect tick in every department - I have found it.
This place is amazing, it would take too long to explain how great this place really is.
Little things like padded area on the bed head so you can sit up and watch one of the 15 or so channels on tv. Foxsports 1 and 2 - that's good!
The lagoon pool is just brilliant, my girlfriend couldn't get me away from the tropical fish. The views over Surfers Paradise are mindblowing. The room has everything including speakers in the bathroom so you can hear the tv when you are taking a shower. The SERVICE was perfect. I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this place just did it the way you want it.
I think I'll be back!!
