This was my second stay here, several years apart, and it was even better this time. The hotel is ideally located for holidaymakers, with convenient parking underneath. There are 2 pools (1 indoor, 1 outdoor). Our 1 bedroom apartment was perfectly sized for a couple, and had an ocean view from the balcony, where we could watch the sunset. The beach is just across the road, with many restaurants, shops and surf club within easy walking distance along the Esplanade. They close the Esplanade to traffic on New Years' Eve so thousands of people can attend the annual fireworks display on the beach.There is a supermarket behind the hotel where you can purchase self-catering supplies, and you can even get direct access from there back into the hotel with your room card. All in all, it was a lovely New Year's Eve weekend away, and value for money in peak holiday season. Would definitely recommend for anyone not wanting to have to use your car whilst on holidays as you can walk to all local attractions, including Alexandra Headland and Underwater World. The exception would be if you want to see a movie or go to Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore, which is only about a 10 minute bus or car trip away.
