I stayed here for five nights with a friend; the apartment was big, clean and modern, but did have a musty smell which got into all my clothes. It was easy to get to the two breakfast venues and to the supermarket, which was great. On reflection though, I did find myself envious of the folks staying in the apartments on the esplanade, who would have had million dollar views of the beautiful beach. The reception staff were very helpful. Pool and gym looked great, though I didn't use them. The bar and restaurant in the building also warrant a mention - I visited both and thought they were very good.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front barely have a water view - so maybe go for one at the back, where you can see...

I recently spent 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The room was immaculate with a balcony, looking toward the coast. This property is one street back from the beach and handy to the shops and cafes. The supermarket is 5 mins walk away. We enjoyed the swimming pool and spa and the lift was surprisingly quick. I would definitely like to return for another stay.

My wife and I often go to Mooloolaba and this time we picked the Cilento. We decided on a two bedroom unit so we had abit of space and were higher up the building. We were in room 702 and found the unit to be roomy, clean and comfortable but it needs some modern improvements. The main bedroom did not have a TV but all of the points for installation were there, maybe some sun lounge's on the veranda to catch the morning sun and the lounge room faces the rear of the other resorts in front, so at night when we had a light on the curtains were quite thin and everybody could see in straight in, block out curtains would work well.
Overall a good stay and would go back stay anytime. The managers and staff were a great to talk to and arrange any activities we needed to do.

Room Tip: I would get high up the building because the Cilento is just one street back from the beach and arou...

Our apartment was very comfortable, including beds and pillows. We asked for a room on the eastern corner which gave us a view of the township and brief ocean between two buildings. About as good as you'll get in this location and it was fine.
Rooms well equipped and good service.
Only negative for this stay would be one lift was out of order during our week long stay with no communication or sign from management to say when or if it was being dealt with. With only one lift in service it made for some very long waits or very cramped rides. However just a small thing that did not deter from our overall experience which was great.

Room Tip: Ask for an eastern corner suite.

Wanted to get away from it all for Christmas and found myself scraping the barrel on Wotif. This however came up and I was pleasantly surprised. All the things I really want- clean, comfortable and welll appointed. Sure it was one block back from the seafront but that was no great hardship and I was able to relax and enjoy the festive season here. If you want a getaway that works, then these apartments work well.

Spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, very well appointed and clean. Minutes away from beach and shops, bars, cafes. Balcony overlooking street but with hawk and parrot displays in the evening. Underground car park, all very convenient

Overall we were satisfied. Modern, clean & spacious rooms. Centrally located at Mooloolaba within walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants etc. Bonus breakfast was also good. If you're keen on ocean views then this is not the place as it's one street back behind other highrises but as i said very good access to the beach. Only issues i had, one elevator was out (apparently had been for 3 months) so we spent a bit of time waiting during busy periods. Facilities outside of the rooms were a bit lacking, an OK pool but that's about it. We took the kids and there wasn't anything for them there. Overall we were happy with our stay.
