We booked for a week during school holidays a month in advance. Price came down by $40 a night closer to time so we were not happy. Views from living and bedrooms was stunning and thats about where it stops. Place needed a good spring clean, smelt and was very dated. If we had paid current wotif price we would not have minded so much as it would have been a good price for basic facilities. Location is all this dated place has going for it. Felt like it needed a really good clean.

Room Tip: Wait till last minute to get a good deal. Have washing machine in room which is handy.

We enjoyed 8 nights at Mandolin and were impressed by the facilities. Renovations to outside facilities had just been completed and BBQ area, swimming pool, tennis courts, etc were of a very high standard. Our unit on the 8th floor was front facing which gave us beautiful views up and down the coastline - absolutely first class. The unit itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Mandolin is close to everything - just across the road from Surf Lifesaving Club - local bus stop just outside and within easy walking distance of the coffee shops at Mooloolaba. We would recommend Mandolin for a relaxing holiday for couples and families. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hope we can visit again one day.

Room Tip: The higher floors and the middle front facing units give the best views.

We recently enjoyed a short holiday at Mandolin with the family. The new pool area was fanstastic for the kids and the apartments were clean and very comfortable. We went to Mooloolaba for the triathlon and really appreciated being offered a late checkout on Sunday. It made getting out with kids after the tri very relaxed and we really appreciated the gesture. It's far enough from Mooloolaba to be out of the hectic traffic and pace. A perfect family destination. Great restaurants close by as well.

These apartments are right on the beach Rd at Alex. We were in Apt 45 which has a superb view of the beach, the surf club and up to Mooloolaba. We were unable to get away on time from home and so we were going to be late for Check In. A phone call fixed that very pleasantly and quickly.
There was a locked door that we were unable to open on arrival, anothr quick call and it was fixed... Again, staff member very pleasant.

The Apartment itself has seen some better days. While comfortable it was shabby and some parts downright filthy. The carpets were stained and awful, and the kitchenware was disgusting... Again, fixed quickly with a couple of runs through the Dishwasher.

I felt that it was good value for the price charged, and though dirty, because of such friendly staff would stay again.

The Pool area and Tennis courts were being revamped, so maybe some of the apartments may get a lick and a promise.

Room Tip: The rooms to the left of the building looking from the street have the most wonderful views... Athough it is said that all face the sea.

We found this to be a nice place to stay ...we stayed in room 23 on the 5th floor and found it very pleasant...yes it was a bit noisy but where isn't when it is on the main road and close to the beach..just across the road from the beach and the skate park for the kids...there is no air conditioning in the bedroom but we did have a good breeze...found the unit clean and comfortable..it was a good price as well as it was half price renovation rate...spent most of the time on the patio in the breeze and enjoying the views..the free internet worked well...

Room Tip: Higher floor for better views..
