“Great holiday place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We stayed at Osprey Apartments for a week to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Right from the start, with a phone call to book our apartment, we were treated courteously and helpfully. We were most impressed with our apartment, on the 5th floor, which was spacious & clean. it was wonderful to be able to leave doors open and have the breeze flow through. The views from our apartment were amazing.

The pool area was comfortable and well-maintained. We were very impressed with security arrangements, both to actually enter the underground carpark and then to use the lift.

We would not hesitate to stay at Osprey again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have wonderful views in all directions.

Have just returned from another wonderful holiday in 3 b/r penthouse at Osprey. Still very clean, very professional staff and beautifully maintained grounds. Not luxurious but very comfortable and spacious for family of 6.

Large selection of knives in kitchen but they were all blunt. Not a big deal; we bought some more and took them home (we travelled by car).

More detailed review submitted on 22 December 2011.

We stayed at these apartments just before xmas and enjoyed our stay. The second level had great views and the bedrooms were located at the back of the apartments away from the traffic noise and very early glazing sunrise. The location was perfect to the main beach and the beachside running tracks were a good running distance from apartments to the breakwater. The swimming pool was relaxing and at a good temp for us. The only negative feedback would be the outdated main bedroom furniture and alot of glare from the port hole when trying to watch TV. I would stay here again with our grown up children.

My mother, my kids and I stayed at the Osprey Oceanview hotel for 4 days last week. We had such an excellent time. Our unit, number 5, was extremely well appointed and spotless when we checked in. The staff of the Osprey was on hand to help in any way as well.

The unit was very quiet and the view, even on the ground floor, was amazing. The kids also loved the proximity to the pool. The only downside was that the pool was absolutely freezing. The kids could barely play in it without their teeth chattering. Luckily they wanted to be at the beach. It was a bit of a walk for my 6 year old's to the area of the beach where they could swim but it was not a far walk for the adults in the group.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again!

Dear Yummytwinmummy

It was wonderful to receive your very positive review, thank you!
We take great pride in our resort and are really happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time at Osprey. I have checked the daily log on our pool temperature for last week and it has been recorded at 27 and 28 degrees, which is the temperature the pool is permanently at. It can vary slightly in the morning, depending on over night temperatures.
Regards Dave & Sue

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in a 1st Floor appartment in September 2012. The appartment was very well presented with all the facilities in good working order. The bed was very comfortable and it was located at the back of the appartment and it was very quiet. From the lounge their was a nice view over to the water. There was a large balcony out front to watch the world from.
Osprey is in a great spot about 250mts to the start of the main shopping precinct.
The walk to the marina inlet each morning is a delight and among my favourite walks anywhere in Australia (about 5km return)
It is a great place to stay

Room Tip: Any appartment from 1st floor and above will have a water view and be quiet. It has a great kitchen...

We stayed for 3 nights. Exceptionally friendly staff, even printed out our boarding passes for us. We had a late flight & we were allowed a late checkout to coincide with flight. Lovely pool &spa. Room very quiet. Great ocean view. 5 min walk to main shops & beach. Highly recommend. Would definitely stay again. Best pizza ever at capones.

We have just recently had our family holiday at the osprey . We were given a bottom floor apartment which was probably quite handy with our children(5 and 7 yrs) but we would have preferred one with a view of the ocean! On the upside we did have a front and rear courtyard so for kids it is good, it is a short walk into the main part of the esplanade ..a 5 min walk if you just cross over the road its a lovely walk and there are lizards running everywhere all over the paths..so if you have kids they will love it! mooloolaba is a lovely , family orientated place . if your up for partying, its probably not the place to go but for a chill out family holiday with lots of cafes and eateries and a great beach I would highly recommend.. as well so very motivating if you are wanting to go walking/running , there is awesome paths all along the beachfront , Although we did enjoy our stay at osprey I might look into something a little closer . right in amongst it all but for your money you do get a spacious great apartment!

Room Tip: I would ask for ocean views but you wont be disappointed . its a lovely place!

Hi Hothair2

Thanks for your review of Osprey. We appreciate the feedback from our guests.
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday and your apartment. They are very large and our garden view, ground floor apartments are perfect for families as you pointed out in your review. Some even have the added bonus of an ocean view . You booked a garden view apartment and these are all located on the ground floor at Osprey and have courtyards front and back. Guests do have the option of booking a garden or an ocean view apartment.
Warm regards
Sue
