“Central Location with Amazing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

This was a great, quiet apartment on the water with an amazing view! The view was so great that we invited some friends over and order take away to eat on the patio rather than going out to dinner!

Room Tip: Ask for a High Floor Room with the Ocean View

Our family had holiday at Malibu Mooloolaba in Jan - great stay. Value for money couldn't be beaten. Great location - right on top of heart of Mooloolaba with everything you could want right at our fingertips. The apartment was clean (as was whole property), roomy and outfitted for everything you would need for laid back family holiday. Service by all was great, really friendly, in particular, Brian. If you are looking for great family holiday without the snobby prices of other places in same area, then Malibu is for you. We'll definitely be back!!

This is not 4 star !!!. Having previously agreed to stay in Unit 13 (was sent photos etc) I thought we were staying in a nice recently renovated apartment. When we arrived were given Unit 12. We walked into the apartment and were welcomed by a really awful musty and dirty smell. Not a good start. The rooms were so small couldn't even get a suitcase in the bedroom. Floors were dirty, furniture was old and smelly. Decided we could stay if bedding was clean...... well it wasn't, one sheet was stained and all bedding covers had sweat stains on them. Totally gross. Staff offerred to replace the bedding with ones in their storeroom that they weren't sure would be musty smelling as had been sitting there for at least a month. Then staff came to the room and said "If you would like to get out and find somewhere else we will give you a refund". That was the only good part of the stay and service !!!!!! We ended up staying at Mantra Sirocco next door. Way better and definitely 4.5 star.

We stayed at Malibu Mooloolaba in January and would highly recommend to anyone looking for great apartment style accommodation. Perfectly located opposite the beach in the heart of the Mooloolaba Esplanade amongst great shops, cafes & restaurants with every possible service at your fingertips. We found the apartment spotlessly clean with all the mod cons & beautifully appointed with great balcony views to Maroochy and the beach, great for lazy home-made breakfasts just to relax & watch all the beautiful people go about their business. Handy to the local wharf where we enjoyed a canal cruise and a wonderful seafood platter for lunch at discounted rates for cruisers. No problems with traffic noise considering how busy it was at street level, just the wonderful sound of the surf and the local birdlife to help you unwind and relax. Brian provided exceptional service, was always happy to help us book our tours and provide information about local sites and places of interest. In summary a pefect holiday and we'll definitely be back to repeat the experience! Carolynn H

Room Tip: The wind can be a problem on the balcony on the higher levels

Location is great. The rooms are small. Inadequate air conditioning. Refrigerator did not function for the first two days. The cloth dryer had to be pushed closed every 10min till it finished its cycle. There were cigarette butts everywere upstairs. Generally dirty. We left 2 days early. Could not tolerate any more time there.

We stayed at Malibu Mooloolaba in mid October in unit 14, its a ripper, the 180deg' views are to die for, the best on the Sunshine Coast. The apartment was fantastic, great furniture, I think its been updated a few years ago. Malibu would have to be in the best position along the esplanade, cafe's and restaurants all around us, and The Suf Club meals are gr8 value also. This is the second time we have stayed there, and the manager is a real good bloke, always having a laugh & joke and has good knowledge of all the touristy spots to go see. I would recommend Malibu to anyone, even with kids, and it is really good value, the weekly price is very affordable compared to other resorts along the strip, and the other good thing is, you can actually request an individual apartment, and you do get it for the following year. So dont stay anywhere else.....!!

Room Tip: The balcony's in rooms on the South side get heaps of Morning sun, and the ones on the North sid...

We've been holidaying at Mooloolaba for many years now, and it was last year that my husband found Malibu online and we stayed there with our two young children. We loved it so much we came back this year and have recommended it to many of our friends - this will be our holiday spot for the years to come!

The location is unbeatable, right above the coffee shops and straight across the road from the beach. We only ever took our car out if we were going to Sunshine Plaza.

We have stayed in unit 5 (ground floor) both times. The ground floor units are perfect for us, as the fence is higher than the normal balcony being a pool fence. This meant that we could let the kiddies play out in the courtyard without having to stress about them pushing furniture from the raised decking up to the fence and having an accident, there was also no chance either of them had the strength to open the gate.Ground floor also meant we had easy access to the pool which was lovely. Compared to other units on the coast (and we saw one as friends of ours stayed a night in a different complex) the unit we stayed in was very well laid out and comfortable with the bedrooms being far away form the living areas. There was also a second courtyard with access from both bedrooms. Another little hideaway with a sunbed, perfect for relaxing and reading a book. Rooms were all very spacious, clean and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Brian couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. He is so lovely, always chatters away to the kids and was very pro-active in ensuring we enjoyed our time. If we ever needed anything it was never any trouble. We also found the lady who did our mid-stay room service to be incredibly lovely and welcoming.

In short, we can't recommend Malibu enough. It is great value for money, centrally located, staff are wonderful and the unit we've stayed in both times has been perfect for us! Can't wait until Nov/Dec 2012 for our next family holiday!
