Reviewed 7 April 2014

We stayed at Mariners at King’s Beach, Caloundra in March 2014.Our apt. had every amenity including multi-channel TV, full kitchen and even a dishwasher and washing machine. Everything was immaculate. The spacious balcony overlooked the main ocean shipping lane to add further interest and we had our own secure car park place for peace of mind. Mariners is in a quiet area yet is only a five minute stroll to the King’s Beach Boardwalk and the Surf Club. Chanelle, the manager , was always smiling and helpful too. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor for the ocean view

Olivia and I just wished to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Caloundra and your apartments were clean, tidy and well positioned with fantastic views, great sea breezes. Close to King's Beach. The big screen TV was GREAT, when it was on, and the channel that was nearly always on was ABC for Kids!! Olivia loved the pool and spa too. Secure underground parking. Chanelle, the manager, was very friendly and helpful. Overall a most comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay in our apartment.

We had a far-too-short stay at Mariners this January. The accommodation - a 3-bedroom sub-penthouse - was spacious and very comfortable. The location, only a 5 minute walk to the main surf beach and good coffee, was perfect for our family. The manager, Chanelle, could not have been more polite or friendly and was very helpful. Some of the furnishings/fittings in the apartment needed some maintenance and the pool was very hot - but these are our only complaints.

We are looking forward to a return visit for a longer time next year.

I stayed here with the family; the kids loved the heated pool and the close proximity of the beach and playground. The resort is in a good location you can walk to the beach or the Kings Beach Tavern otherwise you need a car, (the hills are a bit much especially after doing the Tough Mudder), there is good undercover parking, but you have to drive around the block to get to the entrance.
The room was a 3 bedroom place, comfortable with great views.
The lift is the slowest lift on the coast.
There was a lot of noise from the surrounding apartments and the Kings Tavern so sleep quality was poor
Overall: for a 4 ½ star it is average and dated, the reason I wont be staying again is that they charge you $85 if you don’t empty the rubbish bin or wash the dishes, we always clean up after ourselves and don’t need a threat of $85 to do so. It’s the small things you remember, isn’t it.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you found it relaxing and that you loved the heated pool and good location.
Sorry to hear you felt there was noise from the Tavern. Personally we do not hear anything as the resort is situated 200m away. Unfortunately on rare occasions when the whole of Caloundra is booked out (such as Tough Mudder) Caloundra becomes an extremely busy place and there can be a lot of people down at Kings beach or visiting the Tavern & nearby restaurants.
I’m sorry if our room sign offended you but unfortunately not all our guests are as conscientious as you. Such signs are quite common in accommodation properties, so if you leave the place tidy, you have nothing to worry about.
I’m glad you found the room comfortable with great views and hope you enjoyed your Tough Mudder experience.

A few of my friends and I stayed at the Mariners Resort in March for three nights as we had representitive football on the weekend we stayed. The room we stayed in was very neat and tidy and had everything we needed to just relax after long days. The bedrooms were well presented, the view from the balcony was great. The Resort was well located to where we needed to go and very close to the beach and the CBD. there is a heated pool and spa with BBQ area which was great for when we didnt feel like cooking a big meal and the spa and pool were great for relaxing and helping with soreness. I would definantly stay here again as the price was excellent. I would recommend to all looking to stay here that it is a great place to get away for a holiday.

We (4 adults and 2 kids aged 4 and 7)stayed for 6 nights in a 3 bed apartment on the fifth floor. The apartment was spacious, clean and we all thought it was great. Lovely views, great kitchen, bathrooms and the reclining lounge was so comfy. It was an easy walk to the beach and along the boardwalk to bulcock street. Caloundra is a top spot for a family holiday. The manager Chanelle was friendly and helpful and helped us with all our queries, she has a great aptitude for customer service. The only downsides were lack of tv channels, we wished we had brought some DVDs. It was quite windy and being in the fifth floor it was noisy on two of the nights but a pair of ear plugs would sort that. We would definately recommend for families, we had a wonderful holiday.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Mariner's Resort as a family. Sept and Nov 2012 and Easter 2013.
We have stayed in 2 different apartments and found them to be modern, well equipped, tidy and ideally suited to house a family +/- guests. The balconies are spacious and safe! You can spend hours watching whales and dolphins frolic. The views are great from the bright apartments with lovely floor to ceiling windows.
Chanelle (manager) is great; very approachable, helpful and organised. Nothing is too much trouble!
There is a heated pool and spa with BBQ area downstairs as well as a small gym, and some idea for day trips in the region at reception.
It's a short walk to King's Beach, with a patrolled beach, ocean pool and kids waterpark. There is also easy access to the 25km coastal walk, which goes north along lovely family beaches and south along the boardwalk to cafes, shops, heaps of BBQ and playground areas towards Golden Beach.
Close by are some great things to see that are not beach related - such as Australia Zoo, Maleny and Montville. Coles and Woolies are also handy by car as are some smaller convenience stores within walking distance. Parking is no trouble and the whole area is secure.
We are coming back for sure!
