Unfortunately the negatives outweigh the positives
A great view overlooking Mooloolaba Beach with the sound of the waves to put us to sleep.
Plenty of good restaurants below and near the resort and the surf life saving club has good meals also.
Free wireless internet.
Undercover and secure parking.
The room included a small laundry with a washing machine and dryer.
It’s not far to drive into the hinterland and explore the views of the coast and the pretty towns there.
Not so good:
Poor servicing – three of us stayed in a two bedroom unit for 6 days but it wasn’t serviced in this time – no change of towels, no extra toiletries and no more soap than the one small cake of soap provided for each bathroom. And there were no tissues provided. I thought in a “resort” you don’t have to go out and buy extra toiletries. Apparently rooms are only serviced every 8 days!
Despite the great view, it was noisy – from 6am they used a vacuum cleaner outside our door, garbage trucks were collecting rubbish and a truck noisily emptied a septic tank for half an hour. Don’t stay there on a Saturday night; we had noisy neighbours partying until 3:30am.
When the wireless internet didn’t work one evening, the advertised “friendly and professional on-site management 24 hours” turned out to be no reply to two phone messages left on the after hours phone number.
There were no drawers provided for clothes.
There was intermittent drop out of reception for some channels on the main TV, yet they worked on a small bedroom TV. The manager just dismissed it as due to a poor TV receiver and offered no help to fix it. So no ABC news most nights.
For the level of service provided, it was expensive.
