Our 3 bedroom apartment had just been fully renovated & we were very impressed with the size down to the colour & décor. Very comfortable, clean & welcoming. We didn't request an Ocean View room though were lucky enough to get a touch of the ocean view including the amazing view of the hills scenery in the distance. Reception staff... More

Ramada Marcoola was fantastic. We had a 2 bedroom apartment ocean view. As soon as we got there we felt relaxed with the view of the ocean and pool. Apartment was massive! Kitchen well appointed and didn't know when booking that the ensuite came with a spa. We had forgotten our baby boys port a cot and it was no... More

Stayed 2 nights 3 weeks ago and there were some mixed reviews for this property though. We purchased a package deal and had a great experience the location is great and the Ocean view room suited us perfectly. There are great shops across the road and the beach is right in front of the property and the pool is lovely.... More

The room that we booked was nothing like in the picture. They moved us to another room the view of the beach was nice. The bathroom tiles looked like they hadn't been cleaned properly, the towels hang above the toilet. Our request for a king size bed was 2 king singles pushed together, so it was very uncomfortable to sleep... More

Great room for the price. The room consisted of a Queen and a single bed, complimentary wine and DVD hire and a half day bike hire for two. And to top it off a 12pm check out. The hotel has been updated and looks great. The TV in the room is huge and great to watch the free DVD on.... More

We stayed at the Ramada overnight so we could visit Australia Zoo. The reservations process was ok - but we were given a highway view room which was incredibly noisy. The room looked filthy when we arrived but as nobody was on reception when we went downstairs, there was nobody to tell. Unfortunately my little boy was sick in bed... More

Stayed in a ocean view room on the 3rd floor for two nights which we purchased through Luxury Escapes and well worth it. Marcoola is a hidden gem and the access to the beach from the Ramada was exceptional. Visited Noosa but much preferred the relaxed style at Marcoola. Staff were really helpful and rooms, though ours was small, were... More

I recently travelled up to the Sunshine Coast for a sporting commitment and I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across Ramada Hotel (Originally Surf Air Hotel) on Marcoola Beach. I guess it's fair to say this location is a little isolated for those who like to stay in bustling areas but I can say this....The Ramada Hotel has been... More

We stayed recently for two nights only with our friends and would have loved to stay longer. Both our hotel rooms had views of the fabulous beach from our balcony only and although the rooms are small, were comfortable and provided a fridge and tea making facilities. We saw a few whales making their way north from the beach, and... More
