“Great location but would not recommend”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Stayed for 5 nights recently. Paid extra for rooftop to have BBQs but BBQ only worked once. We had to ring reception every day to see what is happening as the BBQ got taken away. Very disappointing as we had bought lots of food to cook and sit up on the rooftop. I have since contacted rolling surf a week ago to discuss as no discount was offered and they have not returned my call. A big disappointment and would never stay there again

Just back from a five night stay. Location is sensational, pool is really great and direct access to the beach all big plus'. However overall our two rooms were in poor condition, examples include...leaking toilet, oven did not work, wash basin in ensuite not connected [its falling out of the vanity], our double bed squeaked very badly, strange odour in foyers, room not clean hair everywhere.
The location warrants the premium rates charged but this is let down by the poor standards. And very strict rules about everything - example foldaway bed in the room has a chain lock.
Shame, but would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms for sure

Second time staying here for a week,excellent family holiday location,beautiful views,pool and parking perfect,friendly staff but needs a little bit of money spent on beds and bedding as they were tired,ironing board was awful and maybe umbrellas and extra poolside furniture especially with the money being spent on accomodation.

Will stay again though

Great family Accomodation. Would only choose ocean front or pool access. If staying in a flat at the back. You may as well stay back a few blocks (where it's cheaper). Wonderful access to beach (not even a road to cross) & great post-surf shower facilities etc. Can sit on the veranda & hear the surf breaking or watch the ships pass (esp beautiful at night). Good kitchen facilities - easy cooking & cleaning. Pool is FABULOUS. Huge (though it gets crowded with families) & varied in depth. There's a shortage of seating & space around the pool discouraging just sub baking - most families come, swim & leave. Good coffee available nearby.

This is our second time here and although we love the location, it will probably be our last.

There is no incentive for booking in advance as wot if offer great last minute deals which the resort won't match if you've booked early.

I booked a room for 1 adult and 2 children but the room consisted of two double beds. My children are a bit too old to be sleeping together so we decided one would sleep in the sofa bed only to discover the sofa bed had great big bike lock on it.

The air con did not work at all. Not even a little bit. And light and power switches in the kitchen and spare bedroom gave us electrical shocks.

Overall a disappointing experience considering the cost but can't fault the location.

We stayed here as a family and found it the perfect choice for a mixed age group. The location right on the beach was fantastic as we could just come and go without having to stay at the beach all day. The older children could easily go back to the apartment when they tired of our company. The apartment had very thing we needed except a corkscrew. The rooftop balcony was the best feature as it provided space to relax. It has a BBQ, outdoor table and fridge was so perfect for relaxed dinners. The ever changing view of the passing boats was amazing. The only thing we didn't like was the temperature of the so called heated pool. It was quite cold at times.

Room Tip: If traveling with the family choose a room with rooftop balcony.

This family friendly resort is a great place to see through Christmas & the New Year. The location does not get any better and the management are friendly and happy to oblige.

Yes, some of the units are showing their age but it is still great value for such a magnificant spot. Great pools, hot sauna and a gym that is useable.

Still believe it is the top stop in Caloundra.

Room Tip: Ocean view worth the extra
