“Awesome family apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Apartment was clean, modern, spacious and the balcony (as well as the view!) was spectacular.
We were thrilled with the 2 bedroom apartment that we rented for us and our two children. It was excellent value for money, and the service was fast, friendly and responsive. We arrived way before check-in time (still adjusting to the time difference!) and the manager let us settle in early and was lovely and accommodating. Appliances and electronics are all latest technology, air conditioning works great, beds are very comfortable, location is super-close to the beach, but still slightly away from the main hub in Caloundra. Overall, we were very impressed and would definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay. Good value. It is a quick walk to Kings beach, restaurants, and shops. The rooms are spacious, Good sized balconies. But best of all its off the main road and is quiet. It has a pool and entertainment area. Its good for travelling around the sunshine coast. We were on a business trip, but it would also be goodfor a holday.

We stayed in Mariners resort having booked after reading reviews on trip advisor. We were not let down. The apartment was very clean, had all the gadgets you would need. Positioned very close to the beaches (4 mins...) and restaurants it is well positioned. We had a car but this was locked away in the basement for safe keeping! The swimming pool and spar were great and loved by the kids. Chanelle, was super helpful (particulalry after our 5 year suffered car sickness, giving us everything needed to clean down and freshen up) at all times and her attitude was always, yes and can do. Definately worth a visit, great apartment and lots to do locally.

This was my 4th visit to mariners resort, i made this trip with some friends as Unit 25 (Penthouse) was able to be rented again.

This penthouse would have to have the best view of kings beach, the roof top spa is brillant and also has a great view of kings beach. this stay there was 5 of us and there was plenty of room. the 4 parking spaces for unit 25 helped massively as we had 3 cars with us on this stay!

As always the customer service provided by Chanelle was Awesome, 2nd to none!

I highly recommend to stay here if you want a quiet, well equiped and modern place to stay in the kings beach area!

My partner and I plus my four young adult children stayed at this resort for a few days during Summer holidays and took away some fond memories. Our apartment was spacious, clean and airy with modern furnishings and the kitchen provided everything we needed to prepare meals, but as the resort is in walking distance to restaurants and the local pub we didn't need to do much cooking at all. The pool/ barbecue area was also a fun source to enjoy a family meal with a swim and a spa to relax in. The best part of the apartment we stayed in was the balcony providing outdoor areas for dining or lounging in the sun, with a gorgeous view of the ocean in the distance. As stated above...I would love to stay at Mariners Resort again.

We headed to Caloundra for a well earned break and it was so beautiful. I simply loved the outlook from the balconies, the beds were superb and comfortable, the resort was quiet, peaceful and oh so relaxing for being in the middle of paradise.
We pretty much spent the whole trip betweeen the beach and the apartment which is only a short stroll away from the splendid oceanfront (which is great for kids) loved the pool facilities too :)

A quiet resort that is nice and modern. Pool was heated so that was a bonus. A short walk to the restaurants although we got the free bus to the RSL a few nights.
Rooms are nice and well equipped with modern furniture and an extra tv in the master bedroom is a bonus. Really large balconies.
Great relaxing stay. We will be back. Loved the personal touch the Management added by seggesting locations for us to go and visit.

Room Tip: Sea view balconies are amazing!
