If your looking for a family holiday Then this place is perfect. A very extensive kitchen in our apartment nothing left out. Access to the beach, several pools some even heated. Several restaurants bars and cafes in the ground floor. I can't fault this Place at all absolutely beautiful and so relaxing

We were lucky to have booked the suites 414 and 415. And the suites overlooked the beautiful beaches and backwaters and we could spot dolphins from the terrace of the room. Helpful and attentive staff. Loved the 4 nights stay here. We would recommend this to anyone looking at luxury at right price.

Great location across from the beach, restaurants at the doorstep. Easy check in and surprised by the size of the room, massive!!! Had spa room, excellent tv with sound system and foxtel, comfy lounge, well equiped kitchen and laundry. Couldn't believe what we got for the price, definitely returning to this place.

We didn't use their kitchen much but had bought take out dinner to enjoy and used the dish washer. Room is clean, bathroom huge... More

This is not a bad hotel or resort, but I am not sure it is an excellent one. We enjoyed the stay, but we faced a number of issues when there: - The free wifi did not work; - It was cold (yes, on the Sunshine Coast) and the heating did not work; - There was no sea or pool... More

We stayed for 3 nights not knowing what to expect or do on the Sunshine Coast. Eva on the front desk made us feel very welcome and was continually helping us find adventures and explore options. The room was huge with great views, loved the spa bath. We used the pool everyday and hired the bikes. Thank you so much... More
