I recently stayed at a resort on the Gold Coast, it was called Turltle Beach resort, and had the most amazing pool areas for the kids, about 5 different pools, and big slides for them, play area, heaps of bar b q areas around, kids had a great time. The only downside was the rooms, they were a bit old and shabby, the bed I slept in was so hard I felt like I was sleeping a block of concrete, the pillows did not have protector covers on them, the balcony when we walked out had bits of hair and toe nail clippings on the ground. It was supposed to be a non smoking resort, but someone on my floor was a heavy smoker and as soon as you walked in the smell just hit you, heaps of butts all over the place, we had a barbque one day and I turned around just in time to see the baby putting a butt into his mouth. We were there for a week and not once were the stairwells swept, vacuumed or moped they were filthy. Someone smashed a bottle at the bottom of the stairwell and just left it there, I picked up most of if but it took 2 hours for housekeeping to come after I called, and all they did was ;pick up the bits I had pushed into the corner, there were little bits left all over the floor. Very disappointed if the place had just been a bit cleaner and updated a bit It would be the best place to stay.
Oh well never mind you have to try new places and things . If you are not too worried about cleanliness its a great stay.
