“Nice location but....”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Stayed here for 1 night in a one bedroom apartment. The room was nice, clean and well appointed and the resort is in a good location. We checked in at 2pm, which is the earliest you can check in and the reception closed at 3pm!? The resort advertises 'free wifi', unfortunately we could not get it to work... rang reception at 3pm hoping to get someone. Too late! So we tried the after hours number but it wouldn't work!? In the morning there was no hot water in the bathroom - so we both suffered cold showers which was extremely unpleasant as it was the middle of winter. Called reception but it wasn't yet open! Hmm...
Just these things that left a bad impression, otherwise we would have been happy with our stay.

As a 1 day visitor, I noted that the apartment was clean, and the easterly balcony provided great views of Bullcock Beach. The apartment was on level 3, so anything higher your views would have been excellent. For tenants parking is provided and there are limited visitor areas to park. Many eateries are within a short walk and the shops on the main street are NOT the "usual" shopping centre ones, which is a lot more interesting for browsing and purchasing.

The apartment was well designed and the furniture comfortable. While not large, the space was well used and for 2 people it was great. (Family units are available, but I didn't view them).

The outdoor areas were well maintained and the swimming pool was great, especially being heated in the Winter months.

Staff were friendly and helpful which is a bonus when holidaying.

Overall, I would recommend OVR for exceptional value and great location.

Room Tip: As OVR has quality elevators, the higher level, the better, and preferably due East to get morning s...

Had a wonderful three days here. Great resort: well managed: one block back from the beach but even on the 3rd floor we had a nice view of the water. We upgraded to a bigger room and glad we did. Very spacious: not just a kitchenette but pretty much a fully equipped kitchen. Close to the shops (about a 7 minute stroll) including two major supermarkets and a shopping centre. Actually, pretty much close to everything, shops, markets (on Sunday morning), cafes and restaurants, beach. I would be extremely happy to return to OVR. In a competitive market, they can stand tall. Well done.

One criticism: some condiments would have been good. Some salt and pepper would have been a nice touch instead of just a couple of empty salt and pepper containers.

Room Tip: A higher room with a view would be great. A larger room is also more spacious and a nice luxury.

We have just had a 6 night stay at OVR while I attended a 2day conference and my husband spent time with cousins. The OVR suited our requirements perfectly. We had a 2 bedroom ocean facing apartment which was clean and well appointed.I found the staff friendly and helpful at all times. We would not hesitate to return.

Great location in the heart of caloundra, unit was clean and met all our requirements. They offer overnight accomodation for families which is really hard to come by in caloundra. Too cold to swim in the pool but it looks like a great facility.

We stayed here in September 2013. It's very centrally located on Caloundra's Main Street. So it is very close to a huge choice of shops & eateries. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach but you do have to cross a very busy road. The rooms are self catered, small but well appointed, comfortable & in good condition. The little kitchenette is fine for self catering. There is a good size pool, sauna & spa all included in the tariff. Our room had street views but there is a large roof top BBQ area with great 360° views of the Sunshine Coast. It's not a lavish hotel but it's clean, central & very affordable.

Room Tip: We had an apartment overlooking the side street so no view but also quiet. Just check, a front apart...
