Weekend Getaway

I go to the Gold Coast about every 2 months for a weekend getaway. This is the best place to stay with kids. Comfortable rooms and good facilities. I will be staying here more often and planning a full week for the next time.

great for kids

We took our 4yr old after seeing photos from a friend who had stayed and we were really pleased we had. We counted 8 pools on site, plus a water park, plus tennis and putt putt golf. We didnt leave for the three days we were there! The rooms were a bit basic with dated furniture but clean and tidy and there was a washing machine and dryer which was really handy. Would definitely stay again.

Good but not great

Didn't spend a lot of time at the resort as we were always busy! Was a little bit annoyed as one day we had a note under our door about our somking. We had hardly been there all day and were smoking outside on the balcony. We also got asked to be quiet on a Friday night at like 5mins past 10pm. I guess it is a family resort and some parents don't like it when others are relaxing outside at night. We are parents to just wanted a break at night. Apart from that the place was awesome, facilities were fantastic.. I would not recommend people without kids staying there. But it is a great place for families. Wish the kids at spent more sight using up the resort facilities.

Our family retreat.

We loved the hotel. Great for the kids, and adults too. Heaps of pools to choose from. 1 Cafe and 1 pizza restaurant. I thought was reasonable. Felt really safe letting the kids go off and do their thing. You need a key card to get in and out of resort. Take a extra set of towels each as you only get one lot included in rooms. YOu can pay to hire more. But we just washed ours, and they dry fast in the heat. We had a rental car which I think is a great option if staying at this resort as not really walking distance to town. Parking was available too.

Another great time at Turtle Beach

We stayed for 2 weeks in Dec 2013 in a 2 bed apartment, it was great. This was our 4th stay at the resort and we love the tropical gardens, choice of 3 different pool areas, the mini golf and Pizza Kitchen. The staff are so friendly and helpful, its such a great resort which is why we keep coming back.
