We headed to Caloundra for a well earned break and it was so beautiful. I simply loved the outlook from the balconies, the beds were superb and comfortable, the resort was quiet, peaceful and oh so relaxing for being in the middle of paradise.
We pretty much spent the whole trip betweeen the beach and the apartment which is only a short stroll away from the splendid oceanfront (which is great for kids) loved the pool facilities too :)

A quiet resort that is nice and modern. Pool was heated so that was a bonus. A short walk to the restaurants although we got the free bus to the RSL a few nights.
Rooms are nice and well equipped with modern furniture and an extra tv in the master bedroom is a bonus. Really large balconies.
Great relaxing stay. We will be back. Loved the personal touch the Management added by seggesting locations for us to go and visit.

Room Tip: Sea view balconies are amazing!

Our group of 8 golfers stayed here for a week and stayed in two 3 bedroom sub penthouses on the fifth floor. The manager Chanelle was really friendly and helpful.
The ocean views were incredible from the wrap around verandahs. Unit 21 has just had an upgrade with new carpets,fridge with icemaker and a builtin coffee machine. The beds were comfortable and the fitout superb. Plenty of secure underground parking is provided.
The beach, tavern and good restaurants are only a three minute walk away.
We will be returning.

[This is my 2nd review. The first one, which took me an hour to write, was irretrievable after I pressed ‘Submit’ and was faced with a site maintenance page saying I couldn’t upload anything for a short while, and I couldn’t go back to save what I wrote. Lesson learnt: for less heartache, write long reviews in Word then cut-and-paste into review text box.]

I booked this 3-bedroom apartment from Mariners website after seeing it on lastminute.com.au. I went for a weekend with my wife and 2 boys (5yo & 11-month-old) and my spritely 80yo parents.

Mariners Resort is a short walk from King’s Beach with its large public swimming pool, children’s play areas and BBQs, and a minute’s drive (or several minutes’ walk over hilly terrain) to many good quality restaurants and cafes on and around The Esplanade and Bulcock St. We recommend Alfie's Mooo Char & Bar and Tides Waterfront Dining.

First, some basic geography of Mariners for when you arrive. The reception entrance on the 1st floor faces Saltair St, while the underground (basement) car park entry for some apartments (including ours) is on Arthur St, one street south of and parallel to Saltair. Go to the reception first (for the initial entry, you will be let in by the courteous reception staff) and get your electronic tag with key. The tag is needed to get into the car park as well as into the reception entrance and the lifts (you must beep first before pressing your floor).

Apartment 22 is one of only two apartments on the 5th floor, easily accessed by lift. It has a master bedroom with a queen bed and ensuite, and shares a large oceanview verandah with the lounge area. In the middle of the apartment sits the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has a large, high quality fridge, dishwasher, and all the pots, crockery, cutlery and cups you could need. Unfortunately our insinkerator was blocked by a previous tenant, but the helpful lady from reception attended to the matter promptly and efficiently.

Behind the kitchen was an enclosed area for the washing machine and dryer. Opposite this area were the other two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with twin singles (I could feel my springs which also made for a squeaky sleep, but the others seemed to sleep ok), and the 1.5 bathrooms. These 2 bedrooms opened onto another large verandah, which had a clothesline down one end. All the rooms were clean and well kept. We really appreciated the aircons. There are widescreen LCD TVs in the lounge and master bedrooms, and a DVD player which had to be operated by the buttons on the front rather than remote control.

Mariners have a cosy pool in which we happily splashed around; there are also 2 BBQs in that area. We didn’t have time to try the gym and sauna.

Overall, we would probably consider staying at Mariners again the next time we’re in Caloundra.

Room Tip: The 5th floor has a great ocean view. Check apartment specs carefully on the website; contact the re...

If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay while at the sunshine coast, i highly recommend this resort..

I have stayed 3 times within a 12 month period, i have stayed in 2 bedroom apartment, 3 bedroom apartment and also in the one of the penthouses.

Its my favorite place to stay when on holidays on the sunshine coast, the rooms are massive and clear and the staff are very very hopefully and very friendly. I would recommend to stay in the penthouse if possible where youget 3 bedrooms and private roof top which also has its own private spa which beautiful views of kings beach ( this is in unit 25 - penthouse ) the penthouse also gets its own coffee machine, the kitchen is very well appointed... the views are just beautiful and breath taking... and with the penthouse and some of the larger units you get 2-4 car park spaces which be handy.

so if you want a place to stay which is nice, well priced and also can accommodation between 1-6 people, stay here..

Loved this self-contained unit! great rates and great location when staying in caloundra. modern appliances and extremely clean. excellent/friendly staff and would definitely stay again and recommend to friends! i have two toddlers and this place is very secure and is a safe environment. loved that the kids bedroom was faraway enough from the main bedroom so that we could sit in bed and enjoy TV, something we dont get much of at home!! cant say anything bad about our stay at mariner's resort!
