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.

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

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

Good location with the beach right across the road and cafes, corner store and restaurants within walking distance. Mooloolaba is about 15-20 minute walk with much more shops, bars/pub and a Coles. The apartment had everything you needed but the only thing was the aircon seems to only be in the bedroom as the lounge area was a lot warmer.... More

Great Location, reasonable place to stay for a long weekend. Just across the Main Road to the beautiful Alex Headland beach, warm waves and Surf Club. Short walk to the Mooloolaba restaurant scene. Room is tired and dated but reasonable facilities. Kitchenette, only bar fridge, cheap TV that didn't work for a day, useable laundry and a 'see through' shower/spa... More

The three bedroom apartment was comfortable and spacious. Spa bath in the master bedroom was very relaxing and the pool area is lovely and quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful with excellent restaurant suggestions. Very well located. I would recommend to others and would stay here again.
