“Amazing place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Absolutely amazing place, my wife and I were married here on Saturday 9th November 2013 and everything about this place was perfect! We had 72 guests from all over the world and not 1 had a bad word to say about this place, amazing rooms, awesome staff who went out of there way to do anything for us- Jenny the wedding planner is one of the nicest/hardworking people you would ever meet- as are the rest of the staff.

Can not say enough about the place- pool area is great, nice food, relaxed atmosphere.

As far as the wedding goes awesome function room, great options for ceremony location, great options for photos.

Would not change a single thing.

Can't wait to be back for our first anniversary!!

Spent three nights at RACV in a 3 bedroom villa with spa on roof. The apartment was spacious with modern furniture and all facilities required. We had cocktails and pizza at the bar one night which was good and indulged in a facial and massage at "One Spa" which was fabulous. The resort is currently upgrading the pool area which will be great for families when completed. There are regularly shuttle buses to Noosa which is convenient. Overall great stay.

Dear Ljp1970,

Thanks for your review and pleased "the girls" had a great break at the resort and had the opportunity to indulge in One Spa.

Our resort, featuring our very large and comfortable 3 bedroom apartments, Precinct Villas or Luxury Enclaves is becoming increasingly popular for girls trips away. Staying in any of these apartments are a great way to keep the price per person down but not feeling like you are living on top of each other.

I hope this becomes an annual girls trip away and we get to welcome you all again.

Regards

Stayed over Noosa Tri weekend tho not involved with that event. Observed that the staff handled all the different guest demographics extremely well - caring for the Noosa Tri competitors but not overlooking other leisure couples and family guests. Stayed in a ground level standard hotel suite and was impressed with its spaciousness, its outlook n comfy bed n pillows. Equally impressed with the included bfast - fresh quality products, diverse options - n particularly luv'd the 'home' made muesli and the scrambled eggs correctly made with shallots n parsley - the latter so rarely done in hotels nowadays. Other eggs were a la minute but to order - thought perhaps could have had another egg option in a bain marie without having to request. Availability of newspapers incl. interstate at bfast also appreciated. All staff were exceptionally friendly yet still professional. Works being undertaken on extending pool area - wasnt affected by noise or workman but our room was further away so dont know if ones closer were. However, here again, thought had gone into a more attractive 'rainforest' landscape screen around these works - as opposed to the normal ugly builders' screen fencing - well done and something often overlooked when hotels/resorts are undertaking necessary refurbishments/developments. Excellent hourly complimentary shuttle bus to Noosa Junction, Hastings St. Quibles? Gym - only one well used treadmill (tread needs attention/tightening) and one well used bike; not much in hand weights; couldnt find tv remote control - clearly no staff had been there to tidy up each morning, turn on tv etc - needs another treadmill and bike and perhaps placed in different locations in the small gym. Pool/beach towels - bit old and worn - acknowledge usage is on an 'honour' system so would be some loss - but perhaps better to upgrade them and control via reception desk? Hot water in room - intermittent when having shower on mornings when higher occupancy in our resort section - water was cold for 70% of showering time - brrr - needs attention to system capacity.

Dear OzHotelier,

Thank you for such a comprehensive review of our resort. The Noosa Tri festival is one of the busiest weekends in Noosa so I am pleased you found the resort team handled this well. Our Food & Beverage team will also be delighted with your positive comments about breakfast at our Arcuri restaurant.

The gym should be checked daily and I have discussed your feedback with our Leisure and Spa Manager. The hot water system in each of the 157 apartments is independent of each other so I suggest the periods of cold you experienced was to do with the individual apartment you stayed in rather than occupancy rates. I apologise for the inconvenience and we are trying to identify the apartment you stayed in to inspect and repair.

Thanks again and all the best for Christmas and the New Year - not far away now !

Regards

Dear Nathaliehmd,

It is wonderful that you have had a perfect holiday at RACV Noosa Resort before the arrival of your beautiful little baby. As a father of a now 4 and 6 year old, I can understand how important some quiet time together is before the little one arrives.

It is not long now before our 2nd pool, playground, toddler’s pool and water splash park is complete which will be perfect for you to return again one day with the little one.

Thanks for your review and all the best when the bay arrives - enjoy every moment.

Regards

Fantastic weekend competing in the Noosa triathalon and staying at the RACV Noosa resort. A big thank you to the front reception team who were so efficient with the courtesy bus and making sure we got down to our events on time. The shuttle ran hourly on the Saturday which was great for attending the couple of events we wanted to see. Sunday the shuttle bus and tarago van ran continuously up until 9.30am to make sure everyone was catered for on the big day. The precinct villas are fantastic and generous in size. Can highly recommend this resort for anyone looking for family friendly accomodation over the triathalon w'end.

Dear MacD656,

Thanks for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed the Noosa Triathlon weekend at the resort with your family. Congratulations on competing in the Tri on what was such a warm day. If I competed in the Tri I think I would still be running (or even cycling) so well done!

It is a tremendous weekend in Noosa and the resort team always enjoyed hosting all competitors - there is nothing like the nervous energy around the resort the morning of the race!

I hope you get the chance to compete again next year.

Regards

While the room was great, being ultra modern, spacious and offering full kitchen facilities, as well as the resort being beautiful with great facilities, it wasn't quite the holiday we were looking for.

I would certainly recommend for families, however being a couple trying to relax a resort full of noisy families and children was not ideal, we were lucky enough to have a few days were there was no one in the apartment next to ours however once they arrived we knew about it by all the yelling, screaming and banging, the relaxation disappeared, which ultimately ended with us checking out of the resort a few days early and finding another place to holiday.

In saying that it was the same scenario with the pool, the pool was great, however to lay by the pool or relax in the pool just wasn't possible with all the children, certainly not what we wanted on a holiday!

Be sure to book an apartment with a private balcony as well, even though it said private, it most certainly was not, we were available for the eyes of all other holiday makers who made us feel uncomfortable by staring each time they walked by (100000x a day!!) and as for the blinds, just a very light scheer white, so they didn't offer much privacy but were better than people seeing in, as they could without the blinds!

These issues aside I would consider returning when I have a family, and would ensure breakfast was included, as I had assumed this, it was disappointing to find out it was not...

Room Tip: Pay the extra for sanctuary view, or for the 3 bedroom villas

Dear Stacey L, thanks for your review.

I am pleased that you enjoyed many aspects of our resort such as your apartment but disappointed it was not the exclusive experience you were after. As we have a range of Suites and 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments & Villas, the mix between couples and families that stay with us is around 50/50, with more couples outside of school holidays and more families during school holidays.

The completion of our 2nd pool with interactive water playground is not far away which will attract kids providing even more opportunity for couples to relax around our existing lagoon pool.

It is great that you will consider visiting us again one day.
