“Finally Found It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Mooloolaba is a wonderful place and we love coming here, but have had some rather woeful Accommodation stays such as all three Mantras which are just a disgrace and don't belong on the Esplanade.
We have been looking for great accommodation that wont break the bank but is still nice, clean and looked after. We took a leap of faith and found it in the Osprey apartments. Even though not five star or as luxurious as say Oceans it is still a great place. The whole complex looks to be well looked after and maintained, and our room was no exception. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with extra family room and we were greatly surprised when we walked in. The place was very big, very clean and well looked after,( unlike the Zanzibar where everything is mouldy, dirty and disgusting). Any staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, the pool area was great and best of all the BBQ area which was terrific was free, a lesson some of the so called 4 and half to five star resorts/hotels should learn.
This time round we had a great relaxing trip and we didn't want to leave.
We say well done and thank you to everyone at Osprey who makes the place what it is, you all deserve a pay rise and a huge pat on the back =)
If you are looking for affordable, clean comfortable accommodation in the best location with something for everybody in the family, then look no further than Osprey.
We will be back

Spent the last two nights of our 3 week Holiday in Australia, after the hustle and bustle of busy Melbourne and the energy of Surfers Paradise, Mooloolaba gave us the pace of life required to wind down prior to departing for home. My only regret is that we didn't spend much longer at the Osprey. The rooms are huge and complete for self catering in every detail. Modern decor, exceptionally presented with the most tranquil of views either from the ample balcony or through the huge glass doors from inside a comfortable lounge area. Bedrooms are spacious and quiet. The staff are efficient in an effortless sort of way and the pool area contains a large pool and welcome retreat from the beach during windy days. Overall wonderful, there is even a BBQ area under cover. I would certainly stay again but for longer given the chance.

Room Tip: They are all great but the higher up you go, the more there is to see

We stayed at Osprey Apartments for a week to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Right from the start, with a phone call to book our apartment, we were treated courteously and helpfully. We were most impressed with our apartment, on the 5th floor, which was spacious & clean. it was wonderful to be able to leave doors open and have the breeze flow through. The views from our apartment were amazing.

The pool area was comfortable and well-maintained. We were very impressed with security arrangements, both to actually enter the underground carpark and then to use the lift.

We would not hesitate to stay at Osprey again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have wonderful views in all directions.

Have just returned from another wonderful holiday in 3 b/r penthouse at Osprey. Still very clean, very professional staff and beautifully maintained grounds. Not luxurious but very comfortable and spacious for family of 6.

Large selection of knives in kitchen but they were all blunt. Not a big deal; we bought some more and took them home (we travelled by car).

More detailed review submitted on 22 December 2011.

We stayed at these apartments just before xmas and enjoyed our stay. The second level had great views and the bedrooms were located at the back of the apartments away from the traffic noise and very early glazing sunrise. The location was perfect to the main beach and the beachside running tracks were a good running distance from apartments to the breakwater. The swimming pool was relaxing and at a good temp for us. The only negative feedback would be the outdated main bedroom furniture and alot of glare from the port hole when trying to watch TV. I would stay here again with our grown up children.

My mother, my kids and I stayed at the Osprey Oceanview hotel for 4 days last week. We had such an excellent time. Our unit, number 5, was extremely well appointed and spotless when we checked in. The staff of the Osprey was on hand to help in any way as well.

The unit was very quiet and the view, even on the ground floor, was amazing. The kids also loved the proximity to the pool. The only downside was that the pool was absolutely freezing. The kids could barely play in it without their teeth chattering. Luckily they wanted to be at the beach. It was a bit of a walk for my 6 year old's to the area of the beach where they could swim but it was not a far walk for the adults in the group.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again!

Dear Yummytwinmummy

It was wonderful to receive your very positive review, thank you!
We take great pride in our resort and are really happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time at Osprey. I have checked the daily log on our pool temperature for last week and it has been recorded at 27 and 28 degrees, which is the temperature the pool is permanently at. It can vary slightly in the morning, depending on over night temperatures.
Regards Dave & Sue

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in a 1st Floor appartment in September 2012. The appartment was very well presented with all the facilities in good working order. The bed was very comfortable and it was located at the back of the appartment and it was very quiet. From the lounge their was a nice view over to the water. There was a large balcony out front to watch the world from.
Osprey is in a great spot about 250mts to the start of the main shopping precinct.
The walk to the marina inlet each morning is a delight and among my favourite walks anywhere in Australia (about 5km return)
It is a great place to stay

Room Tip: Any appartment from 1st floor and above will have a water view and be quiet. It has a great kitchen...
