Great great great position. Opposite the beach and great for us because it was the closest hotel on the main street to enable us to walk to the point to surf!! I'd say average for service because the rooms do not get cleaned everyday.. Unless u r staying for longer than 8 days! The room when we arrived was dirty! Hair on my pillow, food crumbs all through the draws! I had to wash all the dishes provided because u could tell it was really roughly cleaned! Some of the lights in the room didn't work either! Overall it was quite a modern room in a good position in noosa :)

We stayed here in August. Stayed in a two bedroom deluxe apartment on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. Modern apartment, light and airy. Enjoying swimming in the pool and having a spa. Great location right on Hastings Street. Would highly recommend to couples or families.

Stayed here for three nights (Tue-Fri) in Aug 11 with my wife. 2nd floor 1 bedroom apartment facing Hasting street. Stayed in a refurbished room. The location of the apartments is outstanding. Shops on the doorstep, beach about 30m away, restaurants and bars nearby too. The national park is a short stroll away.
The apartment is light, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The living area is combined with the kitchen and offers excellent air con, flat screen LCD TV, dishwasher, two ring cooker, microwave, plenty of cutlery and dishes. and has a comfortable two seater setee which folds out to give an extra bed. Balcony overlooking Hastings street is good for people watching and gets the sun as well, there is a table with 4 chairs on the balcony and a sun lounger.
The bathroom is well appointed with shower/spa bath, a roller shutter hides the washing machine and dryer from the bathroom. Hairdryer is supplied.
The bedroom sits between the bathroom and the kitchen/living area and can be completely closed off using sliding doors. The bed is comfortable.
Secure underground parking is available, and there are vending machines in the complex for juice and snacks. We never used the pool area but looks lovely and well maintained.
Noosa Heads is gorgeous and we found the apartment location to be outstanding. we can also recommend the Surf Club on the beach which serves reasonably priced excellent quality meals all day, cheap drinks as well with entertainment most nights. It has a fantastic view of the ocean and it is easy to just sit there and relax. Try walking round the National Park walks with stunning coastal views. Hell's Gate along the walk is worth the trek!
We thourghly enjoyed our time there and would go back without hesitation. I would probably ask for the same room as it was perfect for us. If anyone has any questions that i can help with just ask....

We were here for 6 days in beginning of July. We had a 2 bedroom apartment (rm 225). The location was great as it is opposite the beach and on the main shopping/eating street Hastings Street. I wouldn't like to guess when the "newly" renovated apartment was refurbished but the carpet in the bedroom had bleach stains, shower grout grubby and there were dead bugs on the light bulbs in the bedside lamps. The doors screening off the lounge from the main bedroom didn't close as the runners were either worn or stuck. The second bedroom was way down the entrance of the apartment so was away from the main living area (okay if you want to get away from the kids) but it was dark and cold as the apartment was at the end against the national park. Very quiet but didn't really get any sunlight. Would be okay in the summer as it would keep the room cool but during winter, we found it a bit cold.

There is a big box full of sandcastle making equipment for the kids that you can borrow which was great for our son.

Don't know what the other rooms was like but it is a great place to stay if you can find a NEWLY renovated apartment.

My wife and I and our 4 month old baby stayed at the French quarter in a 1 bedroom deluxe (ground floor) apartment. It was perfect for our needs for 4 nights during July after finding a great deal on the Web.

This is a fantastic place for families with nearly all rooms facing onto the central lagoon style pool area whish also includes 2 spas a sauna and a little children’s pool (depth about 30cm)

I would also emphasise what the other reviewers have said and that is I would definitely book a deluxe room either 1 or 2 bedroom if staying here. The deluxe rooms are the rooms which have been recently renovated and whilst there I managed to have a look at the 2 bedroom deluxe and was very impressed.

The service from the staff that we received throughout our stay was exceptional even after the amount of questions that had for them.

The location of the resort is right on Hastings Street and a short stroll across the road finds your self on the beach. Free underneath secure parking is a bonus. (You will understand once you arrive and see the shortage of car parks in the area).

I have top admit I found an unbelievable deal on the web so for the value of the trip was 5*, I’m not sure if it would reach that if paying full price.

All in all we would definitely stay here again if could find a good deal.

Room Tip: Stay in a deluxe room

Have stayed at a number of Noosa properties and FQ always seemed expensive, but we managed to get a good Entertainment Book rate and so booked a 2-bed renovated apartment. The pool is big - though it does get a bit crowded. Rooms are very good sizes with quality furnishings. The location is perfect if you don't have a car and dangerously close to Massimo's gelato just across the road. Grounds are very nicely planted. We had a ground floor apartment with a courtyard which wasn't very private, but then transferred to a 2nd floor room with a large balcony which we preferred. The prices here can vary considerably so would advise booking several months in advance to get a good rate. Our kids thought the pool was magic and rate this hotel highly so if you can get a good deal it makes for a very nice stay.
