“Great Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2007

This was our first visit to the Sunshine Coast and we chose Outrigger Resort because it sounded OK. We were right. The town house style apartment was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The pools were always beautifully maintained and a pleasure to swim in. The couple who manage the resort were as friendly and helpful as you could want and nothing was too much for them. They organised any excursions or travel arrangements quickly and at no cost. They were never too busy to chat or advise you on places to visit and would personally recommend restaurants to you.
My final recommendation is that we will definately be returning.

What ever you do..dont stay anywhere else..we are seasoned and very picky travellers..This resort is so well positioned..close to shops and restaurants..but from the layout and ambience..you are secluded and pampered.
Your hosts obviously love their task..They are welcoming and helpfull..The apartments are spectacular..spotless and spacious..The pools are a dream..its like being in a rain forest..so much greenery..palms and beautiful gardens...

Nothing beats this place..Jean and Roger from UK

We stayed in one of the rear units, as we have every year for the past 8 years. We like the unit, we like the managers, we like the cleaning and gardening staffs. The other guests are always ready for a natter in the pool or at the BBQ.

The river is only 100 metres away, and the council has made it a wonderful walk. The water is clean, if not a bit brisk in May. The restaurants are close and the food varies in both style and affordability. We used the car only to go to one of the many clubs available in the close, and wider, surrounds.

Will we continue to go to Noosa Outrigger? We most certainly will, because we never get tiredof it. Outrigger Beach Resort meets our high standards of location, weather, cleanliness and user friendliness. We love being pampered.

  • Liked — Always clean, usually quiet, very comfortable - home like.
  • Disliked — Leaving to come home.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom pool-side apartment for 7 nights with our baby and 2yr old. We were given a third floor apartment which made things difficult with the stroller, despite being given the impression when booking that it was a ground floor two-level townhouse.

Location. Fantastic, across the road from the River, with many fine restaurants within a very short walk.

The apartment itself was large, modern and well furnished. The was a large balcony with good view of the river.

The main downside we encountered was the management, which we felt was poor . The consumables provided are the bare minimum (ie. one roll of toilet paper, 2 plastic rubish bags) so you need to purchase more rather quickly. Plastic garbage bags cost $0.30 which is not much but we thought they could be provided for free!

Our balcony lock was broken and did not lock, so our apartment was essentially unlocked. We reported this to management at 8:30AM but the lock was not repaired by the end of the day, and when asking I was told it would be looked at the next day. We found this unacceptable and after much discussion a lock-smith was finally called that evening. This, however, did not leave a good impression. None of the doors have dead-locks. I don't think security is taken seriously enough,

The apartment was clean but felt felt dusty.

There is so much other accomodation available in Nosaville that I would definitely look elsewhere next time.

Dunedinkiwis, Manager at Noosa Outrigger Beach Resort, responded to this review, July 17, 2007
We always take on board comments and suggestions from our guests but feel disappointed when guests neglect to mention certain facts which can change situations.

We take security very seriously and have a security guard patrolling at night . We took action as soon as we were made aware of the lock issue. Unfortunately we had to wait approx 8 hours for the locksmith to come. We note however the guest did not advise us of this problem on arrival and it was reported on the third day.
Our guests are always aware of the type of units booked. We have no ground floor townhouses and perhaps this guest should have stayed with his original booking which was a ground floor apartment style unit.
Our confirmation letter to guests states:
Your unit is fully self contained and self catering however we have supplied a starter pack of basic essentials for your arrival such as milk, toilet paper, coffee, tea etc.

We are rated as self catering for the AAA star rating.

We (my wife, I and 4 year old son) stayed here towards the end of April 07. We had a 3 bedroom (reduced down to 2) penthouse apartment (ie 3rd floor) at the front of the property overlooking the river.
The place was great. The room was big, with lots of amenities, and nice furnishings. The only downer was having to lug our (heavy) luggage up a few flights of stairs. The resort had 3 pools - 1 heated - and none of them seemed particularly busy, mind you this was not peak time. Nice, relaxing environment. The river itself was also great, with its own small beaches and it was great to swim in - and was literally across the street.
Noosaville is much quieter than Noosa itself, which was perfect. We were a 20 min ferry ride away from the main town, with its shops and amazing, fantastic beaches, or a 10 minute car ride. There are loads of restaurants nearby of all types, pretty good quality. There was even one with about 20 yards of the entrance, which was great when we arrived late and just wanted something to eat. If you dont want the bustle of Noosa (or the expense) then Noosaville is great and the Outrigger was really excellent, both in terms of the room and the value for money.

  • Liked — Big spacious room overlooking the river
  • Disliked — Lots of stairs with heavy luggage to carry.

Over the period Christmas 2006 - January 2007 i took my family to the
Noosa resort in Queensland Australia.

We stayed in a luxury apartment overlooking the river. The accommodation was superb and the staff catered for our every requirement.

The resort was spotless and was unable to fault either the resort or the apartments.

I would not have any hesitation in booking this again and would thoroughly recommend this resort to any travellers visiting this side of the world.

Thanks again to Jane and Warren who ensures our vacation was hassle free and were on hand whenever we needed them for advise and guidance
throughout or stay.
