We stayed at Windward Apartments for a week and absolutely loved it, we found Larry and Mary the managers to be very helpful, the apartment was very clean and tidy and the apartments are in walking distance to the shops and of course the beach.Great place to stay.

I have been to Windward several times as I have found location, accomodation and service excellent. This time I went with 2 pre-schoolers and found the swimming pool and access to beach and its play grounds excellent. The weather wasn't that great but we still found things to do eg Underwater World, Austrailia Zoo etc. Our accomodation was great as we were able to get out on the grass with the kids. I found Mary and larry very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks again, will be back.

Room Tip: Ground floor excellent with littilies.

We booked and stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, we had two couples & at the last minute another couple wanted to join us, the adjoining room was accessed & our friends were able to stay on as well!! The facilities where great, everything we needed, plenty of extra blankets and pillows if needed, we used the pool and the bbq area & had a game of pool while there, nice and cheap at $1 per game.... Loved the location very easy quick walk to the beach, the pub, coles, restaruants & O'malleys irish pub... The booking and service was seamless from the get go, early check in was allowed as no one had been in our apartment the night before, arrangement for this was done without issue, all service was quick, efficient and friendly, very accommodating... Myself and hubby will be back, as will the other 2 couples who stayed..

We stayed for 5 days in February and had a great time! We (Nana, Mum, 2 pre-schoolers) were very impressed with the help offered by the managers Larry and Mary when wanting to visit local attractions such as the Australia Zoo and Underwater World. Larry went out of his way to find out information for us and access the best deals. Both Mary and Larry were very friendly and hospitable. The only thing I'd say was that my bed was a little firm but Mary was able to provide me with a cushioning layer for it which solved any issues. Lovely, clean, welcoming apartment and the kids had a ball with the onsite pool and resident cat, Mojo. Fabulously close to a wide range of restaurants, cafes, playgrounds and of course, the beautiful Mooloolaba coastline. LOVED it! Was a little warm for me but the aircon was very effective and the ceiling fans worth every cent. :) Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Request the higher floors if you're after the exceptional view they offer.

I can see alot of familys had a great stay at this Apartment. Myself and a small group of friends went for a fun weekend away that turned into a weekend battling with Larry the manager. We are a respectful young group we didnt have our music very loud but it was too loud for larry at 1pm who came barging into our room we asked him why he didnt knock on the door he said he did which is not true since somone was in the kitchen and the music was not at all loud. Even if we didnt hear him he has no right to come into the room we rented he could have called the room phone. This wasn't the only time he came into our room one morning at 8am he knocked on the door demanding to see how many people were in our room since he saw an extra person on camera, he checked each room we had one extra person who we planned to pay the extra $30 for in the morning since he lived on the coast and wasnt able to drive home which we thought they would understand we didnt get a chance too as Larry came to the room so early. I could go on and on about our terrible stay. All I can say to this hotel is If you dont like Young groups of people staying in youre hotel please make that clear when booking peoples stays. we wasted our money because Larry and Mary are prejudice of young people.
If you are planning to have a fun weekend with friends dont stay here. If your a family the hotel is near the beach and you might enjoy you're stay.

Sorry that some of our younger guests have to post such lies about their stay.

In short they were so bad, that we had to call the police to have them removed from the complex.
