RACV Royal Pines Resort, Gold Coast: Pools and Playground

It’s taken me a while to sort out these photos, but – ta da! – finally here they are.

When I stayed up at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast in August, I was dead impressed both by the pools and by the playground.

Both are super family-friendly, my children would love a visit here.

Sadly for them, but less so for me, I was attending the Problogger Event. No children accompanying i.e. brain fully functioning.

So the kids haven’t tested these facilities out, but I have an expert eye and I’m telling you this resort is good for kids and their families.

Yes, there’s a giant bouncy pillow – fantastic.

The playground is huge and it’s fully enclosed by a childproof fence with gates.

Little kids can bike and trike around the track there.

There’s great equipment for all sorts of ages to play around.

The RACV Royal Pines has a large leisure pool, with these terrific kids slides.

Sunrise by the pool – sigh….

There’s a great area for lounging around – which I never managed to lounge around on. Next time.

Another shot of the slides – obsessed, moi?  Good to have the lap lanes there too, for we serious (sort of) swimmers.

There’s also a spa pool – who doesn’t love a warm bubbly pool?

There’s a kids splash pool alongside the leisure pool.

In excellent news, a water playground is going to be built too, opening next March/April. I’ll add photos of that to this post once it’s done.

That poolside also made a fab venue for the Problogger party – great fun and very beautiful.

And here’s a bonus photo from my window, looking out over the golf course that surrounds the resort.

My husband’s turning into a mad golfer, so I can see the entire family would be happy here. The rooms are plush too and the food was excellent.

So there you go. How dedicated am I to check out the pools and playground even though I was there alone??!!

It looks a good spot for families. Now… if only they’d add in a kids club…..

Any questions about this resort?

And we’d love to hear about your own favourite resort pool and/or playground?

    I was blown away by this resort Seana. Admittedly we don’t often stay in such a place, but now I know what I’m missing. I didn’t view it as a family destination, but you are so right! The food at the conference was mind boggling and it absorbed the 700 of us so well. I shout Royal Pines praises wherever I can (and Problogger) the organization was amazing.

  • This is my favourite hotel on the Gold Coast – plus the hairdresser Raymond is amazing. Great hotel.
