“Dissapointing......”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

When I saw this place advertised on Trip Advisor and then Wotif I thought sounds perfect for a special night away with my husband, a little than what we usually spend but thought it would make for a lovely evening in, cook dinner on the BBQ and enjoy a few drinks on the waterfront deck. Described as "Delux" in fact one of 16 deluxe one bedroom self contained apartments with a mezzanine bedroom - no ensuite you have to walk down the flight of stairs to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Rust on the staircase and mezzanine surround, does not ring Delux or Luxury to me. We have had better for much less $$ in Noosa. The sign on the BBQ says it is provided free of charge for guests very generous, I dont recall anyone else charging for the use of a BBQ in any other accom. However you would want it to be free of charge because it did not work, no wonder we found it in perfect condition and clean as a whistle.. Tried ringing management no answer. We cooked our dinner in our apartment and put up with food smells throughout the apartment for the rest of the stay as there was no extracter fan in the kitchen.. Nice touch with pod coffee machine but no pods just a sign saying you can buy replacements from Aldi...... On a plus side the setting is perfect the deck on the river was lovely and the short walk to Hastings street awesome. Perhaps our expectations were a bit high. Maybe advertise it as comfortable rather than Delux or Luxury.

This resort is close enough to Hastings St. A 2 minute walk to the cafes and beach. Thanks to resort manager Jenny informed us of all attractions and shopping districts. We took her advise. The resort itself is great. My 13 year old jumped off the pier into the river (a novelty for him) several times, we hired the canoe & paddle board and enjoyed playing volleyball in the pool. Our unit faced the river. It was relaxing and great to view. Serene. Our first day was glorious and the other 2 with rain. Drove to Montville...a great place to be when raining and the other days we shopped. When there was a break in the rain did the National Park walk. Beautiful. Saw a koala. I would be back again and stay at the same resort. This was my 3rd time in Noosa and I love it. The atmosphere is so laid back.

Room Tip: River frontage so relaxing and serene. Stayed in unit 5.

The Caribbean Noosa is a little gem hidden away in a peaceful nook that offers the privacy of personal water access at its back door and the ability to walk to Noosa's beautil main beach in a matter of minutes. My family and I recently enjoyed 8 nights at the Caribbean and thoroughly enjoyed evryone minute of our visit. The self contained units are very reasonably priced and idealy located for all that Noosa has to offer. The apartments are designed to provide maximum use of space and include a small kitchen and eating area. A comfortable sitting area with pull out couch and a very comfortable lofted bedroom with plenty of drawer space.The bathroom is very spacious, bright and clean. There is a small patio area with table and chairs looking onto the lovely pool or directly facing Noosa's back water, depending on the unit. There is reserved parking on the property, invaluable in that parking is at a premium in Noosa. A bbq area with table and chairs allows for the family to enjoy an outside dinner on the property. Sit on the back deck and silently watch the long boards paddle past as you soak up the sun. This was our first visit to Oz and it most certainly wont be our last, what a country!! Noosa is a must, it is a paradise in paradise and offers everything from high end shopping to top class restaurants. The ice cream places aren't too bad either. Visit the beautiful National Park and the magnificant Sunshine Beach. The staff at the Caribbean will do all they can to make your stay a perfect one.

Room Tip: Buy a bottle of expensive wine and enjoy it while you cruise on the local sunset ferry, the captain...

We stayed in an water view room and were very happy with our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. The back deck over the water was great - a very relaxing place to spend an afternoon. The resort is well located - close enough to Hastings Street that it was quick and easy to walk to, but far enough away to keep away from the noisy hustle and bustle.
The staff were excellent, going above and beyond their duty especially when we accidentally locked our key in our room one night when we went for a walk. We phoned the after hours number and got onto Jenny, the manager. Unbeknown to us she was out at a gathering, but she walked back to the resort to give us another key so that we could get in. (And she did this all with a smile on her face! We were very apologetic, but very grateful!) We highly recommend this accommodation as it is comfortable, well located, resonably priced for the area and you will receive friendly helpful service.

Room Tip: The water view rooms have lovely large decks right on the sand. Very relaxing!

We have been staying at the Caribbean for years. Even most of the locals don't know this is here as it's tucked away behind the Sheraton and some palm trees.
On arrival you are greeted with a clean but unspectacular Queensland style 3 star motel. However there are 3 things we love about this place: Firstly for a few dollars extra($160pn for us but it was quiet around Noosa when we were there) you can stay in one of waterfront units with great decks and a jetty you can actually catch fish from. Well, little fish anyway, but we live in hope. Secondly the managers John and Jenny and their son are very helpful and genuinely helpful people. Thirdly, it's only about 100 metres to Hastings Street. As a bonus it's usually very quiet, though one day a bunch of kids around the pool were a bit loud but that was us once to no worries.
It's our personal preference that we'd probably stick with this homely 3 star than stay at a 5 star even if the price were the same, it's just got those special features that money can't buy.

Room Tip: Definitely go the waterfront for an extra $30 or so if you can get one (there are 6)

We booked our accommodation off the net. Originally we wanted to be in Hastings St, but since we were only there for one night we opted for a less expensive alternative. All I can say is I am so glad we did! This place is a gem. It may not be 5 star (probably rated about 3.5 - 4) but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for in location, friendliness and atmosphere.

Our garden view room was clean and well appointed. Split level with the bedroom on a mezannine level upstairs and a kitchenette, bathroom and lounge down stairs. Sliding doors went out into a small courtyard looking onto the pool. There was a small table and two chairs in the courtyard. Our parents stayed in one of the water front units, same layout but a balcony that looks over the river and a private sandy beach. A very nice spot for evening drinks!

The pool was a perfect temperature and surrounded by beautiful palm trees. This meant that swimming in the heat of the day was great, because there was plenty of shade, and even though the place was fully booked there was only ever a few people in the pool at any one time.

It is also a very quiet location, and our bed was very comfortable. This made for a great nights sleep. If that isn't enough, the managers are simply lovely lovely lovely!

And, on top of all that it is not even 5 minute walk to Hastings St (about 200m flat stroll).

This place is great. If you want to be as close to Hastings St as you can, without the Hasting St price tag this is the place to be. In fact, if you want to go to Noosa stay here.

Room Tip: To be honest any apartment would be great. However, if you want a nice water outlook then treat your...

This is a great place only a 5 minute walk from Hastings Street. The room was great, with a split level with the bedroom upstairs and everything else downstairs. The facilities were generally very modern with the bathroom being a bit older but very suited to a beach environment. We didn't use the pool or anything else as we were only there for one night unfortunately. The manager was very friendly and recommended things for us to do during our stay. We would definitely stay here again as it is great value and close enough to Hastings Street to walk, but far enough away to avoid the crowds and noise.
