A group of 5 of us (two couples and one single) travelled from Brisbane to Noosa for a party and needed somewhere to stay for one night.
We stayed in an Auto Club 3 Bedroom Sanctuary Apartment.
Upon checkin, 2 people went into the front counter and upon their return, could not stop raving about how fantastic and friendly the lady that greeted them was.
We reached our room and it was Ah-maz-ing!
3 bedrooms all with a king size bed, two of these rooms had ensuites, 2 separate living areas (even though 2 of the bedrooms had their own wall mounted tvs), a beautiful kitchen, laundry facilities, a back deck and stairs up onto the roof top.
Whilst we didn't have an opportunity to use the facilities, there was a beautiful pool and tennis court.
All of us commented that if we had of known how beautiful this resort was, we would have come up a night earlier!!
Would come back here in a heartbeat and would not hesitate to recommend!!!!!!!!!!

Dear aussie_sammy87,

I am so pleased that you all enjoyed your night in Noosa in one of our 3 bedroom apartments. I often comment that although they are great for families - they are also perfect for singles or couples happy to share because (as you perfectly described) they are huge!

Hope you enjoyed the party you went to and get the chance to come up a little earlier next time to relax around the resort.

Regards

What a great place to stay. The staff were incredibly friendly. Food fantastic. The rooms were very clean and modern. I thought i would regret staying at a spot which is a bit away from town. But I'm happy I was seeing how busy Hastings street gets. I recomend using their free shuttle to Hastings street as parking around hastings is a nightmare.

Dear Highwaytime,

Thanks for your review. I tend to agree with your comments regarding our location - as nice as Hastings Street is it’s nice to be that little bit away from the hustle and bustle in a peaceful, tranquil location. So many guests enjoy our courtesy shuttle bus as you did - as a result we are increasing its size to 21 seats which will be awesome.

See you next time.

Stayed in a 'club' room which included one bedroom, a bathroom, and a 'media' room. The 'media' room is aptly named as it contains a large lounge and a large TV - but NO ventilation or natural light (only A/C). The only room with natural light is the bedroom which has a great view of neighbouring bedrooms - and, presumably, their view of us !!!
Decided to have a relaxing coffee on the terrace off the bedroom, but we were constantly disturbed by the next door residents whose toilet window (floor to ceiling) was within a metre of our terrace. They closed the wooden blinds, but one could not help but hear and smell the activities within the toilet - NOT as relaxing as we had hoped.
Dinner was quite pleasant, but not as spectacular as it could have been, and breakfast was probably better than all but the highest class hotels.
Location was handy to the wonderful Sunday Markets, the Hastings Street shuttle was very welcome, and the staff were extremely pleasant - which made up for some of the shortcomings of the resort itself.

Dear Travel_Bugged,

Thanks for your review.

I had not ever come across the feedback you had mentioned regarding any of our 157 apartments in my 2 and a half years here and we are investigating further to see if we can identify the issue.

Thanks for your compliments regarding staff and our dining, particularly breakfast and I was pleased you had the chance to enjoy the Sunday farmers market (just up the road from the resort) and used our shuttle bus to visit Hastings Street.

We were very impressed with the quality of the rooms, the furnishings and fittings were modern and sleek and the layout was spacious. The parking was easily accessible and the landscaped grounds were beautiful. The buffet breakfast was fantastic with the most variety I have ever seen, but not lacking in quality. I would highly recommend RACV Noosa Resort to anyone who appreciates luxury accommodation at a modest price!

Dear MeganAndBrad,

Thank you - that was a really nice review and comments such as this make all our staff feel great as they work very hard to make sure every guest enjoys their visit.

We often get positive comments about the quality of the accommodation and dining but I was particularly pleased that you also mentioned our beautiful landscape grounds. We spend a lot of time (and money!) making sure our grounds are always well maintained and things like our buildings, external wood work and decks are regularly painted to make sure our new property (only 2 and a half years old) stays looking new.

I appreciate your recommendation to others and hope to welcome you back again.

Stayed with wife and 2 small children on a wet weekend in March.

The apartments themselves are excellent, very clean, well presented and well kitted out. The restaurant and pool area are terrific and the staff are very good and very helpful. Very difficult to fault.

Its a good walk to Hastings St and we always chose to drive.

An excellent choice.

Room Tip: Room 98 hasn't got a view - the rooftop spa apartments look the best!

Dear ARReynolds,

Thanks for your review and I am pleased you had a nice stay despite the wet weather.

For those that stay and do not have a car or prefer not to drive, we also provide a free resort shuttle bus that runs regularly to Hastings Street/Main Beach and the Noosa Junction. This bus is so popular we are now in the process of upgrading it to a 21 seater.

I hope you the family have the chance to visit us again soon - I have arranged for some sunny, blue skies for your next stay with us!

Thanks again.

We needed somewhere to stay for just the 1 night to attend a family wedding. I'm so glad we found this resort as it was perfect for our needs. The room was immaculate and very spacious and comfy. The gardens, lagoons and pool area are beautiful and the included breakfast buffet, my favorite meal of the day, was of a very high standard. I especially loved the pastries and fresh, tropical fruit. It made an already special weekend extra special.

Room Tip: I would ask for an upstairs room next time, but then we'll have to miss out on the ducks droppin...

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in February 2013, we originally booked a one bedroom apartment, but being a RACQ member we asked for an upgrade and they gave us a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was lovely, spacious, clean, tiny, everything we needed was there (extra doonas pillows and towels, all kitchen appliances). It was raining all weekend, and it being a resort there was a trip in the rain from our car to the apartment (up some stairs in our case) but there was a massive golf umbrella in our room for us to use, so it really wasn't an issue! We only ate in the café once as it was a tad expensive, but the food was amazing. All staff were really friendly and available to help. It is about a 3min drive to Hastings St, but we knew that before booking and had our own car, so again, not an issue, we enjoyed being that little bit away from the hustle and bustle. Would (and have) definitely recommend this resort and we will be back!

Room Tip: If you are an Auto club member (RACQ ect) ask for an upgrade before arrival.

Dear Miss JadeM,

Happy anniversary! Thank you for your review and I am pleased you had a nice stay with us.
For the benefit of others, everyone is welcome at the resort however any autoclub member in Australia or overseas (such as NRMA, RACQ, RACV, AAA, AA etc...) will receive a discount at the time of booking. Just let us know when making the reservation or select the ‘auto club member rate’ when booking online. It is another great reason to be a member of an automobile club.

Thanks for recommending the resort to others and it is great that you plan to return again one day.

Regards
