We booked a room with ocean view but when we checked in, our low level floored room did not have a view to speak of. When we went back to reception to complain, we got moved to a higher floor but had to pay a cleaning fee for the previous room even though we had not touched a thing! Even though the higher floor did have a better vantage for a view, the view itself is not of sweeping sea, but of the scrubby passage way. Resorts on the other side of the main strip would have much better views of the beautiful ocean. The service is far away from being 4.5 stars. You basically can get a key during set hours and otherwise look after yourself. We had horribly noisy people above us with children jumping off the bed on to the floor and scraping chairs on the floor above our head for hours on end at night and the reception didn't want to know about it. The rooftop pool and spa is quite small. We felt like we were intruding upon other guests when we went there; not enough space to share. Caloundra is lovely but this resort is not well placed to enjoy it all. This is a pity as the apartments themselves are very nice - large, clean, modern, stylish and well appointed. All in all, we were disappointed and felt that the experience did not match the enticing photos of this resort.
