Hi Susanne B Many thanks for taking the time to give feedback on your stay at Raffles Mooloolaba. Unfortunately, during your stay, the spa jets pump stopped working and I had to wait for a replacement pump. Again, my apologies for this inconvenience. Regards Bob James Resident Manager More

Raffles is conveniently located to everything. The room was clean and tidy - small problem with plumbing but quickly dealt with by Bob. Nice outlook with ocean glimpses but the beach was such a short stroll we didn't really need the balcony. Allocated parking. Would stay here again

Raffles is very close to cafes and local shopping. The apartment was clean and furniture modern. As it was winter it was good to have heating. All apartment ammenities worked well and it was good to have a couple of Foxtel channels. Bob on the front desk was helpful and welcoming. We will stay again.

Had a balcony with a view of the ocean. Easy secure parking. Right next to all the shops and cafes on the waterfront without the noise. Spacious considering it's holiday accommodation. Probably our 3 third stay in about four months.
