I had a 2 night stay at the Marriott Surfers Paradise with my friend, and I must say we had an awesome time there. The whole experience started when we drove up to their entrance, the concierge staff were very welcoming, opening our car door and whisking our car away smoothly as valet should! They offered to take our bag, but we only had one small one so we said "no thanks" and we were then shown to the Reception. No waiting line at all, we were welcomed with a big smile, and to top it off, also were given a refreshing glass of Apple & Guava juice...yummy! The lobby is very big and decorated very nicely. You get a feeling of spaciousness and that holiday feel..."ahhh we've arrived..."

I had requested (late the night before via Fax!) for a high floor, and low and behold, thats what we got! Excellent. We stayed in Room 2810, we had the views of the ocean, the city and the hinterland, what more could you ask for!? The room was very spacious, and the king bed was just divine. It was one of the comfiest beds ive slept on. I could have layed on the bed all day it was that good!

There was plenty of cupboard space, in fact was a walk in robe almost. The bathroom was very large too, the amenties were good qualities also. There was ample lighting and mirrors in the entire room, and had a 2 chairs and a coffee table on the balcony as well.

We also had dinner at the famous "Benihana" Japanese Teppenyaki Restaurant. I reserved a table 2 weeks prior, as this place is very very popular and generally booked out. This restaurant is must but make sure you book beforehand. This also goes for the hotel restaurant in the lobby area, we went down at 8pm Saturday night hoping to squeeze in, but were told we couldnt get in til 9pm. No problem, we tried! But their buffet dinner looked yummy, so again, if you want to try, you should book just in case.

We did try the buffet brekkie on Sunday morning, oh yeah you could eat eat eat as much as you want, cost was $35 pp. They had great selections of hot and cold foods.

The Marriott also has an amazing pool area, we did go swimming but we walked around and had a look. Its the only hotel in the Gold Coast to have their own man-made beach with a waterfall. The grounds were immaculate and very tropical, it didnt seem fake at all. They also had additional "normal" swimming pools too just in case you dont like to salt water.

Overall I had a great time, I would expect nothing less then this from a 5 star hotel, and I am for sure going to be staying at this hotel on my next trip to the GC !
