Have stayed here twice now for a conference and had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Rooms are very clean with lovely soft beds and the food in the restaurants is delicious. Great facilities, there is really no need to leave the resort!

We stayed at RACV for a competition. We were upgraded (yay!) and our room was clean, spacious and had everything we required - except a microwave (however I am sure that could have been arranged if we wanted). Pool and grounds were fabulous - new kids Waterplay area (bit cold though!) but spa were nice! Playground and jumping pillow too....

One night to try out this RACV Resort. When booking the room we had dramas trying to book the room to our RACV card, we are RACV Country Club members and we wanted it charged to our account but they struggled to understand us 3 times.

Hotel rooms were very well appointed and smart. I was fortunate to have a golf course view and could see the coast, and some spectacular sun rises. There were balloons up in the early dawn too. As a conference venue, it works well, with lots of rooms and good sized venues. The golf course is great, with 27 holes and...

We found the place to be very clean, the staff were very helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. The entire place was very relaxing and the rooms were serviced every day. A wide range of food on offer too.

First time visit for our family of 4 in a Twin Room with mountain views. We stayed overnight as a base while visiting Mt Tamborine and Sea World and booked the Winter package which included the Buffet Breakfast. My husband did not believe that the Resort is 30 years old and thought that the renovations done some time ago was...

Just home from a 3 day conference at Royal Pines. The venue was fantastic in terms of the conference, (1500 delegates) and even better the room configuration meant my family could stay too. Unlike some resorts prices for meals etc were reasonable and the staff were unfailingly helpful. The kids loved the pool and playground (even thought it was chilly)...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The RACV Royal Pines Resort stands at the centre of beautiful established gardens offering 331-stylish guest accommodation rooms and premium spa suites with expansive views of the hinterland, chic tropical pool, Gold Coast skyline or the golf course. RACV's flagship resort is a golfer's dream - offering a renowned 27-hole composite golf course and state of the art driving range, the course is proudly home to the Australian PGA Championship and Gold Coast RACV Ladies Masters. But if you're not into golf, never fear. Relax in the Day Spa, or grab a sun lounge by the outdoor lagoon pool, while the kids burn off energy on the pool's fun slippery slide or children's playground with jumping pillow, or have a hit of tennis on one of our five tennis courts. Time Out Adventures, our on-site adventure company, offers a great range of additional activities. Why not take a Segway Adventure Tour, walk on water in an Ozbobble, laugh yourself silly making a Bopping Heads music video DVD, or have a blast with Laser Clay Shooting. There's something for everyone at RACV Royal Pines Resort. ... more   less
