3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Decided on a last minute getaway and was blown away at the cheapish price for a penthouse suite. It rained all weekend which really but a huge damper on our trip (this is obviously not the resorts fault).

The resort itself is lovely. Beautiful main pool and very friendly staff. The penthouse suite is a bit overrated. We must of been allocated an older style suite as the bed was not very comfortable which made sleeping difficult. Very old mattress I would assume. The pillows also need replacing to be consider a 4 star resort.

The kitchenette set up was very modern and beautiful but the lounge chair was old and smelt pretty bad.

The hot tub on the roof was lovely, but not private should you be looking for a romantic getaway.

The bathroom, amazing. Spa bath – perfect.

I think the resort should look at upgrading their penthouse suites should they continue to charge the rate they do.

Good experience, probably wouldn’t be too keen to go back and if we did would opt for a deluxe suite instead of the penthouse, for the above reasons.

Don't do it. We are here now held hostage over breakfast. 1 item available on the menu. Had no sleep last night, had an idiot turn on the Fire Hose above our room. Called management three times about the noise and flood from fire hose to no avail. While waiting outside for management (that never showed) after my husband turned off the fire hose, was met by policeman in bullet proof vest and told to quickly go back inside. Never ever again. It was horrendous, save you're net and go elsewhere.

Decided on a Last minute getaway, David (the Resort manager) was very accommodating and put us up in a newly renovated penthouse suite away from the main complex.

Had breakfast at the in house restaurant both mornings, not your standard fare and a great breakfast menu.

The units are clean and beautifully presented with beach towels and carry basket.

Once again we loved our time at Noosa Blue and hope to return shortly.

Thanks you for your positive response to your holiday. Glad you enjoyed your stay over in the oasis enclave. It's a great room for those who want to get away from the main pool area.
Each room at Noosa Blue has its own particular style so we happily cater for guests with different needs. Its always great to have such beautiful guests stay with us as it makes all my staff and my job all the more pleasurable.
Look forward to having you with us again soon.

Got away for a romantic week away from work and kids. Given 306 with roof top spa. Great view of noosa river and beyond. Main pool was clean and a great size. Staff very helpful and friendly. Very, very quiet - saw only four other couples the whole time. Easy walk to shops, hasting st, beach and national park. Plan to come back next year same time.

Room Tip: 306 to 308

Yes that's what Noosa Blue is all about... getting away from your routine and being able to indulge for just a few days.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Let me know when you are coming back so we can ensure its just as special next time. Noosa Blue is the perfect place to have that romantic break as all our apartments are 1 bedroom and we try and maintain it as a couples resort.

We look forward to creating your next special getaway, when booking ask my team about the many romantic things you can do in Noosa , take a scenic sunset helicopter ride over Noosa, a private stand up paddle or a intimate 5 course degustation at the famous Berado`s restaurant on Hastings street.

We stayed here for our anniversary, paid extra for a newly renovated penthouse. While the unit was a fresh look, the privacy was let down BIG time! While we were both relaxing in our SO called private spa, the manager walks up to spa fencing from a shared roof top area.
This area is open to anyone wanting to access the roof :(
On the second day, the spa threw its legs in the air, cold spa :(
The lady that checked me in was wonderful, the lady that checked me out was not!
Would I stay there again? Well, NO.
Not until they address the privacy issues.

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear that you stay at Noosa Blue was not as perfect as you would have liked. My staff and I always endeavour to make sure all guest have a enjoyable holiday. We took over full management of the resort in October and there has been a lot of upgrading of the entrance, rooms and as part of the new look for Noosa Blue.

The area you mentioned is only accessed by staff for maintenance and cleaning purposes, so i am sorry this made you feel that your area was not as private as you would have liked.

In the new year we will be upgrading a number of the areas including resurfacing all pool and in this will be looking at all ways to make sure all our guest enjoy their time at Noosa Blue.

While visiting Sydney for almost 3 months, I wanted a few days' escape to celebrate my birthday. People in office suggested Noosa. I booked on-line and stayed at the Noosa Blue Resort. I must say that I was very happy with this resort. While the resort's architecture is aged, the maintenance is impeccable. The room was very spacious with a jacuzzi in the bedroom. It had an openness and sliding doors which opened out to a nice sitting area. There was also a private rooftop deck with sitting around, a hottub, lounge chairs and even a BBQ. The sunset was visible from this room's location. There is a washer/dryer in the bathroom. Also, a fully equipped kitchen. The pool area is very spacious and very well maintained.

You had to walk about 15 minutes to the beach and town. Plenty of places to eat, some were directly on the beach. It was quiet as it was not located in the center of town.

Overall, given the opportunity, I would definately visit this location again. It was ideal for a get-away from the City to The Sunsine Coast.

Thank you so much for your review, we have just taken over the full management on the 5th October and since then have been working hard with my team to Bring Noosa Blue back to the iconic property it once was. Renovations have well and truly started and hopefully by the time you stay with us again they will be completed.

I stayed for two nights in the renovated penthouse and found the room ok. The room was clean and fresh however the bathroom had a strange cupboard style door and there is very little room if you want to close the door behind you. The TV was not working when we arrived but when we informed the staff, they fixed it that afternoon which wasn't too bad. The place was defiantly not worth the money spent. The outdoor spa was clean however you can see into the next door penthouses if you like and isn't as private as I would expect. There are no snacks in the room or mini bar. Your room is not cleaned during your stay so it’s not really a hotel. We didn't use the pool however we did dine at the downstairs café for breakfast. The food was nice however it felt like it was closed and under resourced i.e. no milk jug for our tea so they gave us a cup of milk to poor into our tea (spilt everywhere). Staff was friendly but would not come again sorry
