Our second stay here. This time we had an Ocean View apartment on the top level for three nights. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable as well as very quiet. The view of the ocean and beach area from our balcony was very relaxing. The property is well set out and very well maintained. Secure parking underneath and a... More

We just had the most amazing time. San Marino by the sea was in a fantastic location right on the beach front. Jody and Neil the owners are the most friendliest, polite, accommodating people that go that extra mile for their guest. We got absolute value for money and will guarantee that we will be coming back. I recommend these... More

San Marino has 3 things going for it, "position, position & Jodie" For an enjoyable & relaxing holiday San Marino is the place. No roads to cross to the beach, not a crowded overpriced resort area and the apartment we stayed in was superb, it lacked for nothing. Then there is Jodie, the Resident Manager. She was so helpful &... More

We stayed for the June long weekend & very much enjoyed our stay. The 3 bedroom apartment was very spacious, very clean, the beds were extremly comfy, had lovely views of the beach (which was right on the beach) very quiet and the service was outstanding. Would definitely stay there again :)

We purchased a voucher deal for 3 nights at San Marina and stayed here in October 2013. We were greeted warmly at reception and taken to our room, we were immediately amazed at the size and quality of the apartment. Our apartment was directly overlooking the ocean so we enjoyed spectacular sea views from the lounge and bedroom of our... More

We cannot wait to welcome you back and ensure your next stay is just as memorable. November is a beautiful time of the year to holiday in Marcoola. The beaches are still crisp in the mornings and the sky is a maze of colours at the end of the day. Thank you for your review. Best wishes Jody and Neil,... More

Just spent the weekend at this wonderful resort. So peaceful and relaxing, weather it was going for a walk along the beach, chilling out by the pool or watching movies in our room. Was a great weekend away and I would definitely come back here again. Thank you!

Spent 4 nights here as were here from Perth for a wedding. Nice hotel with undercover parking with lift access for luggage. Easy access to nearby hotel restaurant thru the back gates. Service station down the road along with a nice bakery. Nice drive to Noosa and surrounding areas. Would stay here again.
