Look no further because you will find everything you need at Raffles Mooloolaba! Our two bedroom spa apartment was lovely and more importantly very clean. It has all the facilities whether you are staying one night or a couple of weeks. Even though it was just my husband and I, it is still a good size for a little family... More

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Loved how clean and tidy it was. We had top level room. The rooftop access was great. View was stunning. Loved the pool area - The Daybeds were so comfortable. Right across the road from Coles and Cafes but still a nice quite location. Excellent all round and would recommend to all.

We stayed here for three nights and wish it could have been longer. We had a beautiful apartment with all the facilities you would need for a great holiday. Bars, great restaurants and supermarket - all within easy reach. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Best location, close to beach, restaurants, esplanade, Coles. A short drive to Sunshine Plaza and airport, Eumundi Markets and Australia Zoo. Raffles apartments are well set out and very comfortable. Bbq and pool area is well set up, secure parking and secure entry to the building. Raffles Mooloolaba will be our first choice next visit.
