My stay at the Surfer's Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa last year was very fruitful. The staff were friendly and the rooms were impeccably clean. thhe rooms we booked featured unobstructed views of the surfer's paradise beach and true enough when we got there it was a sight to behold. Both the japanese restaurant(Benihana if i remember correctly) and the Lagoon restaurant boasts fabulous international and local cuisine made delicious by the wonderful chefs. The service was excellent. The activities desk and the concierge had put their best in planning and gave us useful tips on what to do and see and the transportation. Yep, its very fun indeed.
