“Fantastic location. Great accomodation and affordable for a family of 6”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We stayed at Catalina for 5 nights during the last school holidays. Our accomodation was a 3 bedroom apartment. It was so spacious, bright and airy with food dispenser, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, and spa.We arrived on the day a cold/wet front had settled in. However this time was ideal in the 2 heated pools or the games room. By the third day the weather was picture perfect - the morning was spent using the full size tennis court. The location of our accomodation was perfect. For a street very close to busy Aerodrome Road, these apartments do not receive a lot of noise from the traffic (and we were situated on the 2nd floor).Walking distance to everything - beach, restaurants, cafes, shops, doctor's surgery and library. Also a few minutes away from the very large Sunshine Plaza shopping centre. Any direction was ideal to take a casual stroll or a beautiful beach walk. A drive to the hinterland was only 30 mins away. Our holiday was over before we knew. Would love to come back.

I recently stayed at Catalina 1 and was very impressed. The reception staff are helpful and professional. With windows the entire length of the apartment the view looking out to sea was spectacular. Even more impressive was the sound of the surf as I drifted off to sleep. Very calming indeed. With the sun rising early in the east I did find the curtains in the bedroom a little on the thin side. The apartment was clean, spacious, and fitted out with everything you could need to enjoy your holiday. Sixth Avenue is a very quiet area to stay and well located to everything.

My Wife, my two little girls and I had a great stay at Catalina recently in September. Spectacular views of the Beaches from the Balcony, and huge windows facing the Hills inland, just great to sit with a cold beer and enjoy the view. Only a minute or twos walk to the Beach near the Maroochy Surf Club, down a laneway from the Resort, provided safe, patrolled swimming, very reassuring with little kids. We requested if any rooms were available up high, the Staff were only too accomodating, they put us on the top floor! We were impressed from the start. The Apartment was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. Downstairs, you have the Swimming Pool, Tennis Court, Gym, etc, Catalina had all we needed. Very close to Restaurants and Shops. The 3 nights we stayed there wasn't long enough, so we will be back again.

Room Tip: The higher you are, the better the view.

We have stayed at Catalina 2 before and love staying here. We (2 adults, 1 eleven year old son) have just returned from nearly a week there and stayed in Unit 90, which was just lovely. The area is great - just a short walk to Cotton Tree where there is a convenience store, coffee shops, newsagent etc and a short drive (only a couple of mins) to the excellent shopping centre, Sizzlers, Zarraffas, KFC, McDonalds, lovely RSL and heaps more. Sixth Avenue is a lovely quiet area to stay but so handy to everything.

Room Tip: There are 2 towers, Catalina 2 is the newer one, the other tower is probably a bit dated. We stayed...

This was the first time we had stayed at Catalina although other members of our family had recommended it. We were in Cat 2 which the apartments are all air conditioned. We had a 3 bedroom which was very spacious and my only complaint would be that the lounge room only had one sofa (which was a bit tired) and two not very comfy tub chairs but for the price it was fine. Complex was very clean and management were very obliging in giving us 2 secure carparks which was great as we walked everywhere. The shops at Cotton Tree are just up the road and if you want a special night out I recommend The Boat Shed for dinner - It was superb.

We have stayed at Catalina a few times now and we are never disappointed. It is tucked away in a quiet spot and yet it is close to the beach, eateries and shops. The rooms are well layed out (3 bedroom apartment), clean and comfortable with plenty of room for the kids. The views are great! The pools and spas are warm! All at a great price. What more could you want for a relaxing holiday.

we recently stayed at catalina resort tower two with our 2 teenage children and my mother in law.
we stayed in a 3 bedroom ground floor unit and it was brilliant. my mother in law had easy access to the pool and a short walk across to the beach. our 2 boys could come and go as they pleased through the back door which opened onto a small patio area. very clean and comfortable.
we would happily stay again.
