We stayed here for a few days and were not disappointed. Great access to the beach. Awesome restaurants in the building and near by. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Great beach views. The only down side that we saw is that the washer and dryer are small but still do the job. I wouldn't hesitate going here in... More

This resort has always been a favourite of ours when visiting Caloundra however after our recent stay, we won't visit again. On check in and entering the resort car park, the machine that opens the car park gate fell onto my husbands car and caused terrible dents and scratches. On inspection the machine had fallen previously and been poorly tied... More

Hi JamBarr33, After a thorough investigation of this matter and receiving an incident report from a guest, it appears that a vehicle has hit the "machine that opens the car park gate" and this has potentially caused the damage. If you would like to discuss this matter further please contact our General Manager of Resorts Grant James at grant.james@ultiqa.com.au More
