“Excellent view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We had one of the self contained 1 bedroom rooms and it was much bigger and nicer than what we expected for the price we paid! Staff were very friendly and we also received a welcome gift on arrival which included tourist information and a free bottle of wine! Room was very nice and even though is a studio room, it didn't feel like it as you could shut off with shutter doors which made it feel very cosy. There was also a sofa bed and you could easily have 4 people in a room comfortably. The view from the balcony was beautiful by day and night. Great location with a row of shops behind it including small supermarket, chemist, bottle shop, hairdresser, and quite a few more. Also there was a shopping centre which was about a 5 minute drive, and probably about a 20-30 minute walk. Pool and bbq areas were really nice, pool is huge and pool has a slide for the kids (and the big kids!) Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Fabulous 2-bedroom condo with a wonderful balcony and great views. Fun heated pool with slide as well as lovely hot jacuzzi. Right on the promenade-great for walking for cycling. The map shown on the side of this site does not reflect the actual location of the hotel at all. Even our GPS took us to the wrong place. Apparently there are 2 locations - "The Esplanade" and "Esplanade". When coming into town, take the right turn to Golden Beach. The beach front in Caloundra itself has much more small child parks with amusements like a pirate ship. as well as cafes and shopping. But, at Golden Beach, there is a great Nepali restaurant, Gurkhali in the nearby Gemini Hotel and a gourmet coffee shop up on the main street, just past the Spar grocery store.

Clean rooms, good price, great views. Resort is really well maintained, good facilities with hire bikes and canoes.

Great location right on the esplanade, peaceful, Golden beach stores on your doorstep, and again, great views!!

We stayed for one week in a one bedroom unit.Kitchen facilities were very good.Bed was comfortable.Spacious balcony . We enjoyed the walk into Caloundra which was a 30 min walk along the promenade. We had two meals midday at the restaurant which were excellent.Very close to the Spar supermarket. We would stay here again. A relaxing holiday.

Stayed a couple of nights in a Studio unit just to relax. The layout and unit inclusions were adequate for a couple. They provided a complimentary continental breakfast which was a bonus. Would have liked to be a little higher but we booked late at a special rate so quite good value. Great location close to shops and a few restaurants. Lovely place to go for a walk along the water or into Caloundra. They do push the timeshare a bit but just say no thanks. Will stay at Worldmark again.

Room Tip: Higher floors obviously have better views and less pool noise

The Sunshine coast has many holiday and resort options. We stayed at our time share in Caloundra and were not disapointed. The friendly staff were always available for any enquiry, tour bookings and general information where to go and what to do.
Our apartment over looked the water which was picture perfect. A hinterland view is as rewarding as the sun sets over the Glass House Mountains.
Resturants are within easy walking as is a supermarket and bottle shop.
We will return.

Room Tip: stay above level 5 for the best views.

Really enjoyed our stay other than not being able to sit out on the balcony due to smoke wafting in from surrounding apartments! The rooms were well fitted out and spotless and the view lovely! Shopping area behind property provided all we needed. Staff friendly and helpful but didn't appreciate the questioning about how many wage earners in the family or the push to go to a sales presentation (within 5 mins of walking into reception) to earn $100 to spend in the resort!
