Stayed here for one night while visiting Queensland. The room is big and everything was good quality and clean. Aircon worked nicely and free wifi is allways a good to have while on a trip. Unfortunately the outside areas (balcony and pool-area) did let us down. On the balcony there was quite a loud noice coming from the courtyard and...

We stayed for one night but would have liked to stay longer. Location is excellent, next to restaurants and the beach is over the road. The pool and with bar area was impressive. Our 'spa suite' was the least expensive but brilliant: kitchen included coffee machine; balcony overlooking the pool area had some view of the sea; large bathroom with...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment with our two young children. The apartment has everything you could possibly need, including towels for the pool! Our kids loved the pool and jacuzzi. Would love to come back.

The smell of sweaty men in the bedroom was horrible and influenced my whole stay. How much does it take to wash the linen and covers plus change pillows to stop this? Bathroom had a bit of a smell about it and had nowhere to put anything. Plenty of resturants near by of reasonably quality. Apartments spacious etc and include...

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary. This place is amazing! Staff are helpful and friendly. They try to accommodate guests needs as required. The rooms are beautiful and the layout is perfect. The location is central were you can walk along the esplanade and take in the beautiful Caloundra beaches. The pools are stunning!

Booked the Spa Suite. Bedroom was very small with the tiniest window - no view no natural light! Bathroom was massive but again the tiniest window! Only view from the apartment was of concrete, pool view was obsolete unless you stood at the edge of the deck. Anyone random member of the public can access the pool area because of...

Dear destinoDestino, I'm really sorry that your room didn't your expectations. If only I'd known that when you were here, I would have done anything that I could to help. Regarding access to the pool area, you may have got the wrong impression. Only our bar is open to the public. Our pool deck and Jacuzzi are exclusively for guests....

We stayed here two nights while visiting Australia Zoo. Great location on the beach, good pools, well appointed units and helpful friendly staff. Parking underneath the resort and lots of good restaurants directly below. We will happily return.

We stayed 3 nights. This is a very noisy hotel. We were in a room on Level 2 which was above the bar area and looked out over the awnings. On two nights there were functions in the bar area making it impossible for us to sit on the balcony due to the noise. Each morning we were woken early...

Dear elmcphee, I am really sorry the noise affected your stay. It's true that some areas can be noisier than others. If only we had of known, we would have moved you to other apartment in a heartbeat.
