Moorings Beach Resort
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Caloundra
Reviewed July 18, 2007

The apartment was clean, tidy, and well maintained. Unfortunately the website images of the apartment interior do not match the reality. They seem to have a problem with the body corp. The apartments are individually owned. The management is provided by onsite managers. Judging from the apartment we stayed in, some of the owners are reluctant to spend any money on new chattels. So you have a nice apartment, great views, stunning pool...BUT old beds, old furniture, old fittings etc. The in room spa is not what is displayed on the web site, rather it is an older small bath with some spa jets. Noise from neighbouring apartments came through the walls at times. There was no air conditioning. No facility for in room internet. The location is superb, the complex is let down by the age of the interior fittings.

We thank your for your review. We agree that some apartments have not be "re-freshed" in some time and it has been a priority of management to have this problem fixed. You are right and all apartments are individually owned and decorated to their own owners likings and taste. We have recently had owners making dramatic changes to their apartments, we will continue to encourage the owners of units to keep up with the trends, and have taken all your comments on board. Please also note that 99% or units have air-conditioning and all rooms have dial up internet access.
