“Should not be sold as 2 Bedroom apartments- not functional no dining room table, nowhere to even unpack your clothes....”
Reviewed 26 April 2011

The resort itself is lovely and in a great position but I think the problem is that they should not have sold the room as a 2 bedroom self contained apartment. It was a motel room interconnecting with a 1 bedroom BUT there was no dining room table so when it was too windy to eat out on the balcony we had to sit around on a lounge room with a coffee table!

You would NOT go here if you had small kids as they are way too far away from you - with thier own balcony. Basically it is right around in a U shape so kitchen is more like a galley and the rooms either side, which is fine with teenagers but again it is the eating area that it fails in. Beds were like Jelly - sooo soft it was crazy.

Also nowhere to unpack your clothes unless you want to hang them all up including your undies :-) AND the kitchen did not have basic things like a peeler, a grater, a salad bowl or even tongs for the BBQ. Such a small cost to the owners would have made for a much nicer stay, I think just badly managed as if they had a standard list they had to have in each unit to be on their rental pool it would solve that problem.

We stayed one night in a 'Motel Suite', which are of a studio design. The room itself was quite a good size and even had a little balcony with outdoor furniture. The room was very clean and and comfortable. The pool area was really nice with a spa, sauna and I spent ages in the heated pool. The location in Caloundra is really great, it's in the centre of town and I counted at least 7 restaurants within a one minute walk from the hotel, not to mention the tapas bar/restaurant directly underneath the hotel - we didn't go there but it was packed on a Saturday night which is always a good sign.
The only negatives I would say are the gym is very small, with only one treadmill and a multi-function weight machine, and the games room had only one video game in it.
I almost forgot - another positive was the free underground secure parking.
We also went to the nearby Bulcock Street Sunday markets which were surprisingly big and had some interesting stuff too.
Overall we enjoyed staying at this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Altogether a pleasant place to stay but its not really 'ocean view'. We learned that if you want ocean view you have to go for 'absolute beachfront'. However, the room was clean and it was easy to walk to the restaurants and shops. On our balcony, if you peered through some buildings you could just see the sea!

Reception was helpful, and it had a good underground secure car park.

Ocean Views Resort is a fairly new modern complex located within easy walking distance to the CBD, restaurants, beaches and parks. We found the Resort's staff friendly and helpful at all times.

A couple of blocks away we found a Stockland Shopping Centre (Coles supermarket, liquor store etc.,) and in the opposite direction, about the same distance, was Caloundra's Transit Centre which has a good network of buses covering the Sunshine Coast. We walked and caught buses everywhere and didn't have to wait longer than 15 minutes for the next bus to arrive.

Our third floor studio apartment was comfortable and clean and had a pleasant outlook over the main street down towards the ocean, off Bulcock beach. This is less than five minutes walk away. The kitchen had all the basics including a microwave. Just above the kitchen sink was a notice which stated that before vacating the premises, all rubbish was to be removed and placed in the bins outside. Used dishes and cutlery were to be washed and left in a clean condition as found upon arrival. Room service was available, but we chose not to have this as it was an extra charge.

Unfortunately, our bathroom, as nice and new as it was, had an awful drain smell, which we put down to the fact that the apartment had not been used for some time. Perhaps, a good flushing or airing-out, was all it needed. This however, did not spoil our short stay there and we would have no hesitation in rebooking a much longer holiday next time.
