“Beautiful accommodation but is missing a few vitals”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

I just spent two nights at Oceans for the long weekending a 2 bedroom apartment. The location is perfect, the view from the balcony bliss. It is styled very well and the amenities were nice. It also has great off street parking.

I only have a few points that I believe should be seriously looked at, mainly considering the price ($500 per night)
1. The coffee capsules are a basic inclusion, you can't charge $1.50 for each. Next to no money but it let's it down.
2. Same as the internet. No place of this standard still charges for wifi.
3. They should consider heating the pool. It was freezing and not very inviting on a windy day.
4. The gym is far too small, with no water or towel facilities
5. Although the air conditioning was working well throughout the apartment, the main bedroom still got very stuffy and required the main door to be open all night. Not ideal if you are sharing with in laws.

Small pointers I know but I think important when you are paying this price per night.

Thank you Pepoka for taking the time to write an in-depth review. We are pleased to see you enjoyed the view and location of the resort in the heart of Mooloolaba. In regards to your comments, firstly I wish to point out that Oceans Mooloolaba is not a hotel. We offer luxury self contained serviced apartments.
1- Coffee Pods - a starter of coffee pods are provided complimentary upon your arrival with the choice to purchase additional pods. Complimentary tea and coffee is also provided and replenished on a daily basis.
2 - Wifi - free wifi is available in reception.
3 - Heated Pool - the pool is heated year round at 28 degrees. This is checked on a daily basis and no issues were logged with the heating over the long weekend you stayed with us.
4 - Your comments have been noted for consideration re; bottled water
5 - Air conditioning - Had this have been reported to reception we would have been more than happy to investigate and rectify this for you.
I hope that I have addressed your concerns and if you wish to return to Oceans Mooloolaba I would be more than happy to personally handle your reservation.

We have stayed at these apartments before and it was so good we went back again.
The staff are amazing right down to the maintenance man who retrieved a diamond earring I lost down the vanity basin! Nothing was too much trouble for any of them.
The apartment is very clean, well set out and has an amazing view. Location awesome!
We will be back and highly recommend the Oceans Apartments!
Thanks for another great stay!

We stayed at Oceans recently and were very comfortable. The rooms were clean and the staff was polite and friendly. The location was very convenient for short day trips as well as long walks on the beach. I would highly recommend!

A lot of 5 star hotels have style but are not sexy, Oceans is definitely sexy with great decor and stylish seaside views. The views are spectacular and restaurants, spas and bars are virtually on the door step.This hotel is a perfect romantic couples retreat but having said that our 10 year old loved the hotel as well. Being fully self contained is a real bonus. We had home made pizza on the deck overlooking the view, magic! Only brickbat is the price point if you are on a budget. Oceans is expensive but you do get what you pay for. I could not pick fault with anything here: great service, ultra clean and super stylish.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view

Thank you T Templeman for your generous review and comments. As we offer luxury self contained apartments that are serviced daily we are on the higher end of the market in regards to price, however as you have outlined in your review you do get what you pay for. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

This is the second time we stayed at Oceans and when we return to Mooloolaba we will return there.
The rooms are cleaned every day and the housekeeping do an excellent job even washing up pots that we had soaking in the sink.
The apartments are individually owned but are consistently of high quality.

Overall very nice place.
Brilliant location and very friendly staff.
The pool area is shared with other guests so it can be a bit noisy and crowded but unless you are willing to stump up for the Penthouse with its own pool then you have to deal with it.
I would recomend to others without issue.

Room Tip: High enough to escape the noise from the pool.

Thank-you Stewart C for taking the time to write a positive review. Our apologies for the shortage of pool chairs, we have had a number of pool furniture items weather damaged which have been sent away for repair and replacement. The good news is all pool furniture has been repaired and replaced and waiting for guest use. We hope to see you again in the near future.
