If you are visiting the Gold Coast with children, Paradise Resort may be exactly what you are looking for.
If you are not travelling with children, you will honestly be better off staying elsewhere.
Why? Paradise Resort is very child orientated, with an outstanding range of facilities to keep your kids happy and highly entertained. Naturally, being so child-centric means lots of noise: so if you don’t have kids there are plenty of places far better suited to your requirements. But if you have kids, they will love it here.
Accommodation: first of all there are the Standard and Superior Resort rooms. These are hotel style, and if you budget allows it you may wish to take a Superior room as these have been recently renovated. Both types of room have a balcony and basics like air-con, small fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and cable television. Both can also be upgraded to an “Aqua View”.
Bunkhouse Rooms and More
Then there are the Bunkhouse rooms. These come in Junior, Superior and King variations, with the Superior and King versions being the recently renovated ones. As you might expect, these all feature bunk beds for the kids, but there is much more to it than that: they are really set up for the little ones to enjoy a home away from home.
There are also Standard and Superior Family Rooms, Family Suites and Interconnecting Rooms available so whatever your requirements you are likely to find something just right.
The resort facilities are fantastic: your children will have lots to do here, as will you. There is an outdoor play area called Dusty’s Playground, an impressive Water Park, a nine metre high climbing wall, a video games room, a giant chess set, and ice rink and more. For the parents there are things like an adult-only Outdoor Spa, a 24 hour gym and a Day Spa.
The Kids Club
Next one of the resort’s highlights: the Kids Club. This is where you can leave your children under professional supervision to enjoy playing in the Space Room, the Captains Underwater World, Astro’s Space Station, the Magic Garden, the Junior Adventure Park as well as activities like painting and crafts.
The Kids Club means you can relax knowing that your children will be safe having fun while you get a few hours to enjoy yourselves. The Club Sessions do have a fee, although some accommodation packages include one session free per day for each child.
You’ll be staying in a reasonably central location with the beach around five minutes way by foot, and you can walk to Cavill and Orchid Avenue zone in ten minutes or so.
