Very well designed hotel.. how every room has a view from front to back. Laundry on every floor. The view is relaxing & always changing with the tides coming & going. Your not looking into anyone elses balcony so its so private. Paths & nice & flat area to go walking or jogging. The pool is such a pretty setting with the beach setting so easy to enter the pool & its always a warmer pool with some water coming in from the very warm spa. I love being in the tranquil part at Golden Beach then the busy part of the Caloundra main city. Sincerely. Gail Henderson.

Decent but improvements could be made :)

Overall we had a decent time. We loved sitting on the balcony and looking at the ocean. The building is quite old but they do look after it. Pros * Close to shops/restaurants, also in good location for plenty of delivery options with food delivery apps. * Close to beach/good views but not too busy * Large balcony * Comfy bed * Good sized fridge * Good spa and pool and the slide is so much fun * Friendly staff Cons * Sales spiel at check in. The welcome pack is really just a spiel about their holiday group where they want you to attend a 90 min seminar. This was not a good first impression. * Limited undercover secure car parking. They do have an overflow carpark but it is not undercover. It has an electric gate for entry so only guests can park there but it does not have a personnel gate from the lane way so anyone can access the cars. * Dinnerware was filthy. * HVAC system kept making a loud banging noise at random. We saw aircon techs onsite a few times over our stay so we assume there was an issue. * Spa bath in bathroom looked grotty so we didn’t turn it on especially after reading another review about clumps of hair coming out of one. * No wifi in rooms only in common areas. Wasn’t really an issue for us as we weren’t using our phones but definitely a handy thing to have. * Booked through Wotif with the no deposit, pay on arrival option but had a call a week out asking for payment for one night. This was not advised on the Wotif website.

Close to the Beach

Comfortable apartment, lovely view of the ocean. Close to restaurants and the beach. Great location. The Thai restaurant on site was very good. Rooms a bit dated. The disappointing part was having to park the car outside as the under cover parking was limited. The under cover parking areas were small and with large cars/four wheel drives parking it meant only a small car could park next to them. The outside parking area was secured but the public could access it and there was no cover.

Drinking in pool area

The only one thing I have to say is people drinking alcohol in spa and pool while children swimming, should be totally ban, if people want to drink to it your apartment.

GREAT VIEWS, Great Staff. Great place

Pros: Staff, Views, Location.
Location: Plenty of Paddle sport options, Cycle hire from the hotel and great swimming straight across the road
We had a very relaxing visit with excellent views from our room. The Staff were excellent and made the stay that little bit more comfortable. Great location 2k's stroll from all Caloundra's restaurants and Bars with an awesome little Cafe around the corner, shops and other cafe's one street back, not to mention the dining downstairs. We will definitely be back.

Pros: The view. The room. The location.
Cons: Wi fi in the room
Location: Beach.moutains. Plenty of eateries.
Enjoyed our entire stay. Didn’t want to leave.from the moment we awoke to the time we went to bed we were captivated by the view from our balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beach was just a very short walk . We were able to swim kayak and fish just in front of our room.
