Hilton Surfers Paradise “Doing It For The Kids” Package.

Hilton Surfers Paradise great for kids
One of the Gold Coast's newest apartment buildings is offering a kids friendly promotion until 31st may 2012.

Holiday for 5 recently experienced the “Doing It For The Kids” Package for a weekend stay and in the words of our 10 year old, “it was awesome!”.

On offer (from the hotel website) is: 
  • Complimentary upgrade to a Two Bedroom Deluxe Ocean Residence.
  • Full buffet breakfast for the family.
  • Mini-Hilton Passport which includes;
  • Family pass to Skypoint Observation Deck
  • Two Games for the family at Strike Bowling
  • Two hour use of the movie theatre; watch your favourite DVD from our library, bring your own or connect the Playstation 2! Includes pop-corn and soft drinks!
  • Once passport is fully stamped, proceed to The Food Store for your milkshake
We were firstly delighted to discover the hotel is located right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, on the corner of Cavil Avenue and Orchid Avenue. Once we had parked the car we did not required it again until we left as we were able to walk to nearby shops, restaurants and main beach.
On our arrival we found the staff could not do enough to help us enjoy our family escape together. 

There are several room options available to a family of 5. With younger children the a two bedroom “Deluxe Ocean Residence” we stayed in would be suitable, as you can have twin beds set up in the 2nd bedroom, and with an extra linen charge you can also use the sofa bed. 
Another option is taking two adjoining two bedroom apartments (perhaps more suitable for families with teenagers), or a three bedroom sub-penthouse.

The two bedroom apartments we viewed were really lovely: very new and well fitted out with dreamy ocean views.  The apartment layouts were quite different however so ask to see the floor plan options available.

We liked details in both rooms like bath robes, hair driers in both bathroom and en-suite (again, good for teenagers..) The kitchen areas are well stocked for families wishing to prepare food. There are flat screen TV’s in the living and main bedrooms.

After a look around the extensive pool area on the second floor (which provides a choice of heated, lap, and spa pools plus sauna), the Concierge escorted us to the pre booked private movie theatre. The children were delighted to be able to choose a movie and feast on an array of snacks and drinks. It was a truly indulgent experience.

We were also provided with tickets to visit the Q1 tower Skypoint Observation Deck which is situated a few blocks away and offers amazing views over the Gold Coast and was well worth the visit.

Buffet breakfast at the Salt Grill restaurant was included in the promotional pass, and provided a good choice of food and pastries, and eggs made to order. The service was polite and attentive, as we had come to expect at the Hilton.

On the Sunday morning we were booked into Strike Bowling across the street from the Hilton. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience to share as a family, and a change from the “mega” amusement parks you normally associate with the Gold Coast.  It is refreshing to take time out for a bit of old fashioned family fun together.

Our stay was capped off by complimentary milkshakes at the ground floor café at checkout, and our ever helpful Concierge, Greg assisting us with our belongings.

Our eldest son turned 10 during our stay and the “Doing It For The Kids” package proved to be a perfect way to celebrate the occasion.

From this Family of 5, the package gets given the big thumbs up and it is encouraging to find a family tailored package put together at a premium, well located hotel.
