If you are heading down under, don't forget to make a stop at the Marriott Surfers Paradise. Check out the view from our room. We had a great view of the pool, the river and the ocean. The hotel was close to everything (restaurants, night life. etc.) but far enough away we didn't feel crowded. If you are looking for activities, be sure to visit Susie at the Activities desk. She is amazing and got us set up for several adventures that turned out to be the highlights of our trip.
