“Disappointed”
Reviewed July 4, 2010

We had a very nice apartment, but unfortunately as it was on the 2nd level, we experienced a great deal of noise from the street below. We were woken up around 4.30 every morning by staff in the cafe below who were setting up tables and chairs and on 2 mornings were woken up by someone using machinery on the Esplanade to blow leaves and rubbish away. Needless to say, we did not get a lot of sleep in the week we stayed. Even though the apartment was quite spacious and had obviously been refurbished, and is in an excellent location, I would not stay again unless we could get an apartment much higher.

My stay was fantastic. Rooms are spacious and have extraordinary views looking out over the beautiful Mooloolaba beach. It is a 50m walk to Mooloolaba Surf Club, beach and situated on the esplanade which is lined with some of the best cafe/restaurants and shops. The resort is very secure and its cleanliness is secong to none. The resorts amenties include a tennis court and a pristine pool and spa area.

The Peninsular Beachfront Resort is my favourite place where my family and I have stayed.

We have just experianced the most enjoyable week ever throughout our extensive years of travel throughout the world! We were reccomended the Peninsular Beachfront Resort through a travel agent that had sent a number of clients to the Resort including a family holiday of his own so we decided to make this our destination. Travelling with us were two other families so we required a total of three apartments as we prefer our own space when away, we booked direct with the Resort & it was from this moment that we realised that we were dealing with people who were interested in looking afer us. Our arrival to the Resort was late & we were welcomed bt the Night Manager who couldn't have been more helpful, he assisted us with our luggage & showed us to our rooms. The apartments were amazing, all looking straight out to the ocean & were extreamly well fitted out & well presented, we are very fussy people who look for the best when travelling! Our apartment was a two bedroom & had more than enough space to spread out, the cleaning was exceptional in our apartment along with our freinds we couldn't have been any happier! The location of the Resort is ideal with only a few steps out the front door to the main beach although we spent more time in the heated pool than the surf. We looked at a number of apartments before leaving & found although they differ in design all were up to a great standard & had lovely views of the ocean...we have booked again for November & can't wait to return.

We love the Peninsular Beach Front Apartments and have visited with our family 4 times in the last 13 years and infact we wouldn't stay anywhere else! The location is about as good as it gets - a short stroll away from the sea and patrolled swimming area.The Mooloolaba promenade is a credit to the community -a clean,family orientated area with its playground,barbecues,viewing platform,and boarded walk ways- it caters to young,old alike.The apartment (3 bedroom executive) was clean and spacious with fantastic views and excellent facilities -tennis court,swimming pool spa,sauna,barbecues -close to bus stop,supermarket,shops and apartment underground parking available for storage of cars.We love this location and The Peninsular Resort -we will be back!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom exec. apartment (3 adults and 2 children) which was modern and clean. However, it didn't have air-conditioning in the bedrooms (fans only). Only the living room had air con - I don't believe that was made clear enough before booking. Maybe an issue in the middle of summer. Our apartment was also next to one being renovated, so it was alittle noisy at times. Hotel in a great location to shops and the beach. The pool was great and the kids pool fantastic and warm. The car park is a bit of a nightmare, with no logical numbering system.. Other than that, it was a great place to stay.

We were a family of 7 ranging from kids to grandparents. We chose the Peninsula due to its location to the family pool, beach, restaurants etc... E'mail correspondence was quick offering me good advise in regards to which apartment (sea views essential!) would suit our needs. Unfortunately when I went to book on-line all their 3 bedroom sea view apartments were booked out due to Aussie school holidays, we were offered non sea views or we could up-grade to the Penthouse. We decided to 'splash out' and take the upgrade and paid them the booking deposit the same day, receiving booking confirmation and receipt the next day. I phoned a week out from our arrival and was reassured that our booking was fine. Upon our arrival we were given a key to a Floor 14? apartment, I asked "wouldn't the Penthouse apartment be on Floor 21?" and we were told that "the penthouse was closed for plumbing maintenance". So my e'mails, phone calls, deposit paid in advance, booking confirmation etc all means NOTHING!!! They mentioned the reception staff member should not have taken our booking and ended up leaving their employment a week later due to slack work issues. We were offered a very outdated apartment with no views at all, but chose to leave feeling very disgruntled at the way our family trip started so badly. Fortunately the hotel Oceans down the road were very sympathetic to our plight and were very helpful to make amends. The Peninsular was quick to refund our deposit, but feel they totally misled me intentially. Oh and they neglected to tell me the pool would also be closed for maintenance...
