I was pleased with the price as this was an unexpected trip. However the room was really very run-down: air-con knob broken making it a guessing game; hot water was off one night 6-7pm; Dryer was erratic, so some very practical inconveniences. I didn't find management particularly helpful - (office seemed to open later and close earlier than advertised times,... More

Our room was ground floor studio. We were very disappointed, it was very tired, dated and extremely noisy. Traffic started at 6.30 every morning. Double glazing would help. WiFi was also very expensive

We stayed here in May in a Beachside Roof top apartment all I can say is WOW the views from the roof and the room balcony was awesome. Enjoyed watching the sun come up in the mornings and lazing in the sun during the day. It is within walking distance to many resturants and shops . And Mooloolaba is only... More

We enjoyed using all the Resort's conveniences - love the heated pool ! The amazing Thai restaurant at the ground level has to be tasted to be believed - our meal was absolutely authentically Thai & the prices... More

Room are large, quier and comfortable. Staff are so friendly (like everyone on the Sunshine Coast!) We had a very relaxing time - Just what we needed. As others have commented, the tile floors do need more attention from the cleaners, but it was not a major. We would certainly go back.

We decided at the last minute to get away for the weekend and walked in to make booking. Room was on first floor and had initial concerns about traffic however once doors were closed you could not hear traffic. Apartments are a comfortable size with the luxury of a spa. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.location is great being across... More

A weeks holiday on the Sunshine Coast with family, weather was awesome and the Grand Palais was a lovely place to stay. Location was handy to everything, across the road to the beach, 5min walk to surf life saving club and restaurants. Rooms were clean and quiet and beds comfortable. The pool loses sun early in the afternoon but otherwise... More

everything is at your fingertips. Kitchen is well stocked with crockery cutlery and cooking utensils. Needs a salad bowl of sorts to make salad. The floors could be cleaner our feet were black underneath in just a few minutes. The floors could do with a good scrub. Position is excellent. Close to eateries restaurants and surf club. Reception was really... More
