WOW.........this place has it all! After a beach wedding on the Gold Coast and wanting to escape on our own for the weekend we chose Monaco Apartments Caloundra after reading other reviews here. We definitely were not disappointed. Our initial one bedroom booking on the 5th floor was upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 10th floor. The views... More

My second time at Monaco and loved being here with my sister and mum. Beautiful views on the tenth floor this visit in a very nice two bedroom apartment with comfortable beds and perfect views of Pumicestone Passage. Great location being walking distance to shops and restaurants. Loved the secure car parking and strolls along the boardwalk to Kings Beach.... More

Stayed with the In-laws and wife in 3 bedroom 11th floor apartment, on the corner. Full panoramic, stunning views! Beautiful apartment, and friendly staff. The view of the whole of the ocean, Moreton Island and the entire Pumicestone Passage through to the Glasshouse Mnts was spectacular and the highlight of the week long stay. Brilliant! Would live here one day... More

We recently stayed 3-nights at Monaco on the 8th Floor. The view across the Pumicestone Passage was very picturesque and the walks along the beach are easily accessible. Very close to the main shopping area and local restaurants. Unit was very modern and clean. Would definitely stay there again. Safe, underground parking provided. Only minor downside was the need to... More

We recently had 4 nights stay at the Monaco and loved it! Nice, clean apartment, central to cafes, bus terminal, Sunday Market and the lovely boardwalk along the beach also great view! The only negative I would say is that we never got sun on our lovely balcony - perhaps we would go for the other side of the building... More

First time visitors from USA and couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect view from our room (1005) or of a more convenient location! Located less than 1 block from the waterfront and less than 1 block (going the opposite direction) to shops and eateries. A Coffee shop called the Shingle Inn is located on the ground floor, (basically next... More

I booked family from USA in here for 10 days. Reception made them feel so welcome all throughout their stay and went beyond the call of duty at all times. They were checked into a 2 bedroom apartment on level 10, the views were stunning. Fantastic spot if not staying with a car. Highly recommend!

Absolutely amazing hotel. Great location right on the water with great views. Rooms are very clean modern. We have stayed in both 1 bedroom and also 3 bedroom penthouse. Both great however the penthouse is a standout! Staff are great also. Only let down is the pool and spa, pool is very small and spa is never actually hot, barely... More

Recently stayed for just over 3 weeks in a 3br apartment. View was spectacular, we had balconies at the front & back. We had 3 adults & really needed 3 keys but were told we could only have 2 which made things difficult at times.We had a dodgy lock on our door, we reported it to reception & they already... More

Had another two week stay at the Monaco. 8th floor views are great. Been on this floor twice now. Warm and sunny with 23deg temps. Explored the sunshine coast and up to Noosa. All the beaches in this area are wonderful. Are planning to make this a regular winters retreat.
