We stayed at the resort for a week simply relaxing ad enjoying the sun, pool and spa facilities along with the close food outlets. Early and late evening walks along coastal beach were a treat. Good self contained facilities, undercover parking and wifi is available. Would recommend this facility as it is close to local tourist attractions.

Booked and stayed the night at the resort. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room had everything we needed in it but is starting to show its age. Great bed and the view from the balcony was magnificent. Its location was excellent being across the road from the beach, a pool and play park.

I booked a two night stay on lastminute.com, choosing a 'Mystery Hotel' and ended up at Shearwater Resort. The mystery hotel rate was pretty good at only $125 per night for a studio apartment with kitchenette and spa. (Thursday and Friday night). Normaly rate was around $175 per night, so it was a good price. Check-in was quick and we... More

We booked this very last minute, the manager, Karen, is one of the most helpful and friendly managers you could wish to have. She let us check in and go straight to our room as I had my elderly parent with us and just said sort the bill out later. We had a 2 bed apartment with a double bed... More

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
