“just right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

WE have stayed here several times, once with just a girls weekend away, 4 adults in a 2 bedroom, was just perfect. I think we stayed on the 5th floor, the view was good, the main street at night wasn't noisy, the bar opposite was good. then we stayed with 2 groups, 12 people, in 2 x 3 bedroom units on different floors. ages from 10 to 43, it was once again just perfect...would I stay there again...absolutely, great pleace

I recently spent 6 nights in a two bedroom view apartment it was all we could have asked for especially the comfy bed! and awesome views, the pool area is stunning, Management are helpful and welcoming, it's in close proximity to all attractions especially water sports. Had a wonderful experience will defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: Defiantly pay the extra for a view!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the 8th level with a great view of Pumicestone Passage for a weekend. The drive from Brisbane was an hour easy drive but we made sure we missed rush hour. It was easy to find and there was parking included underneath. Check was easy and the onsite managers were pleasant.
The room was very nice and clean. The kitchen was a decent size and both bedrooms had en suite which was nice. Don't forget to bring/buy everything you need for the kitchen - including salt/pepper and washing up detergent. On the roof top was a lively BBQ area, pool and gym.

We were very happy with our stay and really like Caloundra. The beaches, public BBQs and play areas are all very family-friendly. Don't forget to go to the Sunday markets!

We really enjoyed our time at Pumicestone Blue Resort. The location is perfect and we could walk to everywhere we wanted to go. We had a 2 bed 2 bath apartment on the 8th floor which was spacious for our family of 4 and had everything we needed. And the view was amazing looking out to the water. The resort had great facilities and even though we stayed in the middle of July the kids were swimming in the rooftop pool and spa which was heated and again had magic views to the water and all around. We had no problems with the staff at reception, they were courteous and we had no issues at all. We stayed with a deal from Groupon which was excellent value. The only thing which would improve the luxury of the apartment even more would be to upgrade to a king bed and to provide an electric non stick frypan. But overall we loved it and would definitely return again!

We stayed at Pumicestone Blue Resort for 3 nights. The apartment was large, clean and had all services required. The rooftop pool and spa provided a wonderful view of the glasshouse mountains. New managers worked at reception and we found them very friendly and helpful. Caloundra was a great base to visit Australia Zoo and Glasshouse Mountains. Caloundra itself has a beautiful boardwalk and is very clean.

Room Tip: Corner Suite had two balconies.

We booked a 3 bedroom for 10 nights and we were on the third floor. We had no complaints at all and found everything to be satisfactory. We had friends staying up in a 2 bedroom Rm 705 and they had no issues either. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely go back.

Staying at pumicestone blue over the weekend would have been a pleasure enjoying the neat rooms and avaliable facilities, which although were not spectacular still were avaliable. But the staff, more so reception staff ruined the complex. Both my partner and i found them to be short with not only us but other patrons and at times just plain rude.
Stay if you like but we wont be visiting again.

Even though your review was quite some time ago we would like to advise that Pumicestone Blue Resort has been under new Management for quite some time now. It is not nice when reception staff are rude and unfriendly and hope that if you choose to stay with us again we can make your stay friendly and enjoyable.
