On the beach, as you would expect of the room, quite nice, clean. Comfortable beds. Unfortunately for 1 night stay we could not get a surf side room but great view of the sunset. Restaurant was very good. Quick, reasonably priced and great food.

Pool was gorgeous, relaxing and reminded me of fiji. We had a 2 bed room, the king bed in the main room was sooooo uncomfortable!!! Was 2 singles joined together, with a very obvious and uncomfortable join. There was no aircon in main bed or tv. Tv in lounge was very small. Lounges were broken and dodgy.

I have been going to the surf air since early 70's. Been staying here every couple of years visiting family. No hustle and bustle of Noosa but close enough to do the drive up the David low way or down to Caloundra. Just love the hotel. Minute walk to the best beach. Everything you need. Stayed in many rooms over... More

My partner and I were in Marcoola for a business meeting and were looking for somewhere convenient and reasonably priced. It fitted the bill on that score. The motel 'central tower' is the old Surfair and it now sits among several apartment towers. On checking in prepare for a spiel about the Wyndham resort/holiday group and an 'invitation' to learn...

Based on previous reviews we did not expect much from our budget hotel room, but it was a little better than expected. While being small and wedged shaped it was very clean and furnishings were newish and in good condition. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Pool area was as good as in the photos. And the restaurant...well..we walked in,... More

We stayed in an apartment on level 1 which was a lovely quiet corner facing the pool. Very clean and well appointed. We shared with friends and the apartment worked well for 2 couples. 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Well fitted out with everything you need.

at $150 pn this hotel is a good place to lay your head for the night. Awesome grounds and proximity to the beach is second to none......the pool is also great with excellent gardens. Room was "ok" but a little "worn"..... Restaurant could do with a menu upgrade. Staff we're excellent.

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
