“Such a relaxing stay”
Reviewed October 10, 2010

I visited the Sebel with my family during October and overall it was a fantastic stay. We arrived after a big day at Australia Zoo and check in was quick and efficient. We stayed in a two bedroom ocean view apartment and it was very spacious, the views of the ocean were lovely, and although the street noise could be heard with the balcony doors open it never bothered us at night. A few minor issues with room suggested they need a little freshening up, the dining chair covers were damaged, and the dryer made a very strange noise, but still the rooms were really nice for a 4* apartment. The highlight of the Sebel for our family was the pool, it was heated and because it was on the second level in front of the hotel it was well protected from the wind which made swimming really enjoyable even early in the morning, overall a very pleasant stay.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Sebel Maroochydore and it never fails to exceed my expectations. Huge rooms, great views, lovely spa in the apartment as well as great outdoor spa and swimming pool. The apartments are fully self contained. You can also get great rates on wotif when the hotel isn't busy. Definitely worth a stay if you are looking for accomodation in the Sunshine Coast.

This was the best hotel we stayed at. It was awesome. The pool was right outside our balcony door. There are washing machines and dryers in every room. There's a kitchen, living room, dining room, and two bedrooms in the rooms. I loved this hotel.

A wonderful apartment to stay at
* big 2 bed room apartment, with island kitchen and view of the pool
* modern appliances and comfortable lounge and bedding
*including 2 bathrooms bonus!! and 2 Tv's bonus!! the big TV had a lovely home theatre setup with great sound
*a study area is also included which could also be a sleeping area
*this apartment could sleep 8+ guests without compromising on space
* great view of the pool and across the road we were on a lower level where the ocean could not be seen
* close to local shops
* kinda close to public transport , don't expect buses to be at your beckoning call, i recommend a rental car for weekends and sundays
* a nice pool and a top deck level spa
* the apartment felt more Residental than holiday as it had nearly everything a home should have, one could purchase such an apartment to permantly live in
*would stay again

My wife and I stayed here for the second time over the Easter long weekend one of the smaller two bedroom apartments on the 8th floor.
We had a couple of minor maintenence issues (flat batteries in TV remotes and faulty downlights), but overall we still feel the Sebel is a brilliant place to stay on the Sunshine Coast.
The beach that you can see from your room is within close walking distance. Underneath the hotel is McDonalds, Pizza Capers and a little Thai cafe. There is a 7-11 convenience store nearby, a small Italian cafe, a large Thai restaurant and a 24 hour carwash just down the road. The big shopping centre is like a 2 minute drive with cinema and shops and more food places like Sushi Train. Heading south it's a quick 5 minute drive to Mooloolaba restaurants like Montezuma's for great Mexican food.
The apartment was very clean, and I liked how many cooking utensils etc the kitchen contained, there were frypans, dishes, plates, etc and even champagne glasses!
We didn't use the in-room spa, but we had a go of the swimming pool, steam room and spa which is on the 2nd floor I think. There is also a roof-top spa and BBQ area.
The hotel was a bit noisier than last time we visited, but that was to be expected as it was completely booked due to the long weekend, and we still had a relaxing time.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed here for 3 nights in March 2010. Was a great hotel. It was my first time in Sunshine Coast area and glad this was the place I stayed at.

The beach is a few minutes walk from the hotel, and nearby are many places to eat at.
7-11 across the street for late night purchases and if your into fast food there's a McDonalds below, among other great food places.

We had originally a 1 bedroom booked, but upon check-in was upgraded to 2 bedroom at no cost. Was very nice of them, although we didn't need the extra space. Our room backed onto the pool which was great, and at night the pool is lit.

There is a steam room, a very large hot tub, a children's pool and a good lap pool (looked better in person than picutres!)

A few cons however were, a few bumps in the stainless steel fridge, and a cracked tile, but for me that was not big deal. Some of the furniture is worn, like a cigarette hole in the couch but is usable. The window shades backing onto the pool in the main bedroom could have been better in terms of privacy.

Overall the place was clean, had no complaints, despite what some have said on here.
And a big plus, Free parking!

Looking forward to going back in the near future!

We stayed just 1 night being a Saturday night, booked a two bedroom apartment for four people. Third floor overlooking the pool and glimpses of the ocean. Check in friendly and welcoming as was check out. Great rate through Entertainment Book and check out of 11.00 am is a good thing on the Sunshine Coast.

We sat in the spa by the pool which was nice and hot, a relaxing spot to take it all in.

I have always dodged this property as I thought it would be quite noisy at night however we all slept very well.. nice bathrooms and a very spacious 2 bedroom appartment that's for sure with a tele in the main room and bedroom.

Ok the down side is the position, just doesn't do it for us as we kind of always thought... and we also note the empty shops below... which have been empty for quite some time now.

All in all very good and we will return, thank you Sebel.
Oh yes and apart from a few children's finger marks on the bathroom mirror and TV, very clean....

9/10 from us! (one less for the position)
