Clean and well appointed. It was very affordable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Close to the beach and parks. We enjoyed the sauna and nearby restraunts. The ocean views from all higher levels are awesome. We booked 3 different 2 bedroom apartments for a family get together and each was of the same high standard.

We enjoyed our wedding anniversary long weekend at Shearwater. As I use a wheelchair, we stayed in the "wheelchair accessible" apartment on the second floor. The bathroom had a roll-in shower, which was good but there was no shower curtain so water went outside the shower area. This was also a problem for my able-bodied husband. There was no rail...

We stayed at the Shearwater Resort for a weekend in a two bedroom apartment. The location is perfect if you have a family who wants to have close access to the beach and cafes. The apartment is nicely furnished, well equipped with a good size balcony to relax and enjoy an afternoon drink whilst overlooking the water fountains near the...

Fabulous 10 day stay again. Beautiful apartment, fab views (migrating whales viewed with binoculars from balcony everyday!). Great location to explore region but plenty to do if you don't want to leave Caloundra.

Simply a great 3 bedroom apartment with three patios to take in the views out over Kings beach area and the surf. The apartment was well appointed with comfortable furnishings. Plenty of options for eating at your doorstep and close by. The option not to have breakfast coupons built into daily room cost would be good to allow for more...

We had to go Caloundra urgently for a 5 day stay, so we did the usual thing and look for a place that provided quality accomodation at an affordable price. ULTIQA Shearwater Resort was the answer. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and practical - and the view over King's Beach was spectacular. Resort staff were very helpful and obliging...

My husband and I stayed with our 3 year old son for 3 nights in a pool access room. Initially we felt very exposed looking right out into the pool/spa area however it was fairly quiet.
