My husband and I enjoyed a three night stay at Monaco apartments after a golfing holiday in Noosa. It was a great place to unwind for a few days before returning home. Our apartment was unfortunately not high up enough to really enjoy the view, but the place was pretty full and I think I got one of the last apartments available. The view is terrific, looking over Bribie Island and the shipping channel. Check in was easy, staff were friendly and helpful. Our apartment was spacious, well equipped and quite stylish. The bed was kind of unusual in that it had a large surround that my husband cracked his shins on a few times, but it was comfortable for sleeping in. The kitchen had all we wanted, and the TV was huge, perfect for watching the Olympics.

The building, in spite of being pretty full, was nice and quiet. The pool area was good, nice and sunny and pretty sheltered from the wind. I enjoyed a bake in the sauna. My only complaint is that the spa pool is not hot enough, it is only tepid. Please, crank up the heat!

The building is well located, half a block to the waterfront and all the restaurants and shops there, and half a block to the main street with all it's restaurants and shops. Loved the boardwalk that extends up to Kings beach, we had great walks along it!

Would go back!

Room Tip: Get higher up to enjoy more sun and views.

At check-in to be offered hot towels to refresh was so cool. Apartment was everything one would need and expect. Very spaceous, clean and well furnished. Staff were exceptionally forward in accommodating any request. Pool area was just great. Sheltered from winds. Plenty of sun and sheltered areas if needed. Would definately stay again.

Have just stayed at Monaco Caloundra on a 3 night special in a 1 bedroom apartment. The first surprising thing was on check-in,we were presented with hot towels on a leaf to refresh with. That's a first for me at a property in Australia!! The reception staff are all very friendly and welcoming,and will help without hesitation. The apt we had was 503 which was very spacious,comfortable,and very clean,with great passage water views. The whole building is very well equiped,lovely pool and spa, great BBQ facilities, gym, and plenty of shaded outside seating areas for guests. I will stay at Monaco again as the whole experience was a pleasure.

We recently stayed at Monaco for a really good three night deal.It was the best laid out apartment we have ever stayed at. The girls on Reception were so helpful and kept in touch as we were held up in traffic and late arriving. The close proximity to shops and beach is another plus. We will definatly return. The view is something special as well.

We spent 3 days at Monaco, and simply could not fault it. Lovely apartment, and with a wonderful view over the beach from our 4th floor apartment. Excellent location. Having discovered Caloundra, we certanly have every intention of returning to Monaco.

We stayed at the Monaco for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment with our 4 year old. We selected the Monaco based on tripadvisor reviews and a personal recommendation. We had excellent views.

The apartment was the most immaculate & clean apartment I have ever stayed in. And very modern too. The staff and management were very accommodating to our room requests. The staff were very helpful.

The only flaws if I had to pick something is that like another reviewer mentioned the bed pillows are too large and uncomfortable for our liking but this maybe a personal taste. Also the outdoor Spa was not hot at all but more warm, we raised this with Mgmt who advised this is intentional.

My thanks to Tanya and her staff

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Monaco and would happily return

Just returned from our second visit in a just over month to Monaco. This time for a special family gathering and needing two, two bedroomed apartments one on the second floor with a restricted view (still a really nice view) and one on the 9th floor with a spectacular view over Bribie Island and the Pumicestone Passage. We had a wonderful time and the staff, location,apartments and facilities were absolutely top notch. The Shingle Inn right below Monaco is a great spot for breakfast and lots of other eateries/takeaways are nearby. Our favourite reatuarant is INDIA TODAY just around the corner and down the bottom end of Bullcock St-probably our all time favourite Indian restaurant with great food and wonderful decor. The Caloundra Sunday Markets are also right on the doorstep. It doesn't get much better than this. Noticed also that the Monaco receives a higher rating than the 5 star Rumba just down the road! We will certainly return as soon as we can. Monaco has helped Caloundra and Bullcock Beach come of age

Room Tip: Go the higher floors-a bit more expensive but well worth it for the view.
