Our stay for a week after New Year was very relaxing. We enjoyed the pool which was very accessible for the kids to swim and never too many others there. The room had a few faults ie. fans not working in one room and a leaking fridge but the staff were very quick and responsive to fix. Jenny in particular... More

The Nautulis is fantastic value for money. It is in a great location, close to Mooloolaba Main Beach, the wharf and Underwater World, Main Street shops and public transport (including local buses to Sunshine Coast Airport). The pool is a lovely place to relax, the staff are very friendly and always happy to help and the rooms are clean and... More

Great location and extremely comfortable. Would like to visit again. Very affordable but needs updating. Pools could have been a bit bigger it became a bit crowded. Hopefully the next visit will see some nice changes.

We have just returned from 17 nights at the Nautilus. The location/price was fantastic. We were only 200m from the beach, shops and surf club. The car park was great and the whole stay was above average. We had booked the 2 bedroom penthouse but were slightly disappointed that we had to get through a locked door and a flight... More

My wife and stayed over Christmas. The view on the balcony of the hotel was over the Marina which was a great attraction. Hotel within 2 minute walk of all the amenities, including the magnificent beach. Room a bit dated but very clean and every essential was there in the well fitted kitchen. The hotel reception staff were excellent (particularly... More

Thankyou for a lovely family holiday at Nautilus. Location was brilliant. Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The room we had could probably do with an update but other than that, great value. Will definitely visit again.

I stayed at the Nautilus in one of the apartments for a total of six nights with three girlfriends. The location of the hotel is great and very central to the beach, shops and public transport. The apartment was clean, tidy and big enough for the four of us, however the reception staff were extremely rude and dismissive. On multiple... More

It is disappointing for me to receive a comment such as yours. However, we have to move forward and use this as a training prompt to improve. Should you wish... More

We stayed here again beacause our first experience in 2013 was great. I got a great deal 'Managers Special' and took the offer without hesitation for 7 nights. Upon arrival the greeting was OK but a glance with attitute from reception requesting balance of payment there and then wasn't a good sign. Questions or enquiries which were few and far... More

In response to your review: 1. it was unfortunate you misconstrued our request for payment on check-in as "not a good sign." Please be advised it is standard Nautilus Resort policy to request balance of payment on check-in. 2. Regarding late checkout: a late checkout is definitely possible (1130am) providing the room has not been re-let the same day, which... More

Stayed in unit 53 for 2 nights has balcony with a view that catches the lovely ocean breeze, also has a great private rooftop terrace with spa. Units are in a great location, short walk to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended this place
