“A stylish yet relaxed tropical vibe. ”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

It's hard to fault this resort. Family friendly but still has that stylish Noosa tropical feel. There's a small lagoon type pool and plenty of spots to lounge around with cocktails or coffee etc. The wood oven pizzas
We're delicious. A few of the other dinner menu items were just ok.
The rooms are very spacious and oozing the tropical vibe. Very comfortable and modern. A well equipped kitchen and large dining table.
We came for a girls weekend but i will definately be bringing back the hubby and kids. I feel like I don't need to look around for other places to stay in Noosa when I return and that this will become my regular place to book.

Stayed October 2013

Dear Dana W,

Thanks for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your trip away with the girls. The resort is becoming increasingly popular for 'girls trips', particularly with our large 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartments or 3 Villas with roof top spa. Note sure if you tried our Day Spa but some relaxing treatments with a bottle of bubbly is also a good inclusion for a girl’s trip away.

It is great that you plan to bring the family back for another visit and we look forward to welcoming you again.

Regards

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa which had our own private rooftop spa. We were both surprised and very impressed at the quality of these rooms and the resort as a whole. Being first time RACV Resort users it far exceeded our expectations. We found the staff very helpful and friendly and the quality of food in both restaurants was superb as well as pleasantly affordable. We will definitely recommend the resort to our friends and plan on going back again for sure!

Our extended family stayed in a 3 bed with rooftop spa, and a 1 bed villa for 4 nights in October.

Pros: Service was friendly and efficient, and the cost is far less than the much better located resorts on Hastings Street;
The resort caters well for families with an excellent pool (soon to be greatly expanded), tennis court, play room and lots of kids...
The 3 bed is clean, modern, very large and comfortably sleeps 6 upstairs, plus room for two in a lounge area downstairs;
The 1 bed is serviced daily and has a stocked mini-bar (the 3 bed offers neither);
Our kids, (9 & 7) loved the lagoon pool and spent hours in it;
The small games room has table tennis, air hockey, computer games - all free and lots of fun;

Cons: Location requires a car to get to Hastings Street or Noosaville (the bus service is quite infrequent although we noticed people using it); RACV is a 10 minute walk to the shops of Noosa Junction but not much else happens there!
It is similarly located to the Outrigger with neither being at all convenient to the Noosa Heads restaurants (unless you enjoy a 1.5k uphill walk after dinner);
Probably not ideal for couples looking for a romantic break given the family focus but noise was not an issue.

We would not have bothered with the roof top spa had we known how exposed it is (no umbrella) and we would have melted with the great weather we had. However, during cooler months it is probably very useful.

The resort is ideal for a family wanting a swim and a relaxing few days. I would check if the pool works have been completed before going and this should be early next year or late this.

Dear NewbayFamily,

Thank you for your review and I am pleased your family had a nice stay with us and enjoyed your 3 bedroom Villa. We have Villas with either a rooftop Spa or private plunge pool. As Newbayfamily noted, guests often select the private plunge pool during the warmer months and the rooftop spa during the cooler months. However, if you like to relax a heated Spa in the evenings it would be suitable all year around.

Just to expand on times of our free 21 seater shuttle bus service, it runs to Noosa Junction/Hastings Street every 2 hours off peak and every hour during peak periods such as school holidays.

The property has a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments which makes them suitable for both couples and families. Typically we have a higher mix of couples staying outside of school holidays and families during school holidays.

Also, our 2nd heated pool, kids water splash park, 2 small water slides, toddler pool with sandy beach and kids playground is running on schedule and will be completed by mid-December, which is very exciting. The existing heated pool is still open as normal.

Thanks again for taking the time to provide your feedback. We hope to see you again.

Regards

We stayed for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and were impressed by the quality of the rooms. The overall look and feel of the property were very good and the staff were very good. The one thing that got up my nose was a small sign in the room that said that smoking was banned in the entire property. This was not reflected on the booking or web sites and being a smoker it will mean that there will be no third stay at this resort as I had stayed here before. Pity really.

Dear PW03,

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed the accommodation, facilities and staff. It is non-smoking in the rooms and apartments but you may not be aware that we do have a smoker’s area at the side of our central facilities area. I will review our signage to make sure this is clear.

Hopefully this is enough for you to visit us again but if not all the very best.

We had a three bedroom apartment shared with another family friends and it was wonderful!

Wonderful service and attention from the beginning to end! Will stay here again.

The pool is a little small but with saying that its in process of being extended.

Dear Kylie S,

Thank you for your review. I am thrilled you had a great time and enjoyed our wonderful staff. The large size of the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom lagoon apartments makes them perfect to share with other couples or friends without feeling like you are sitting on top of each other – great way to keep the per person/per couple price down too.

As you mentioned, our 2nd heated pool, kids water splash park, 2 small water slides, toddler pool with sandy beach and kids playground is running on schedule and will be completed by mid-December, which is very exciting. The existing pool is still open as normal.

Thanks again.

We just spent 9 nights at the RACV resort and it was everything we hoped for and some more. The rooms are modern, bright and spacious (we had a 2 bedroom resort room). The pool area with bar & restaurant is really beautifully designed and the staff are excellent.

We love travelling to Thailand where you always feel that the staff are happy you're staying there & they are friendly and helpful & often in Australia you don't feel that way. The team in this resort consistently follow up if you ask them something and add those little extra touches (little things like bringing trays of water around at the pool, after ordering too much pizza providing a carton to bring back it back to your room, never an issue if asking for some extra lemon or lime for the Calamari which is excellent) My wife and friend were stuck in Hastings street on the public holiday and hadn't noticed the shuttle bus times had changed but when they called the hotel the sent one down anyway) Just lots of little things which when you're on holiday all add up to the total positive experience.

The ambience around the pool / bar / restaurant area is very nice and we were sad to have to leave. A lovely experience through a great mixture between the quality of the facilities / rooms and a great team looking after you.

I really appreciate such a fantastic review and your kind words, particularly about our staff. Some of the 'little things' you referred to is something our staff do naturally and they will be all thrilled to read your recognition.

I hope the family has the opportunity to return some day.

We spent 11 nights at the RACV Noosa with three rooms between our family of 11.

One couple had a King Suite, one family had a two bedroom apartment and the other family had a three bedroom apartment. Our three bedroom apartment was HUGE (two lounges areas, four TVs, three bathrooms, full kitchen and laundry facilities).

The complex is very big but well laid out. A nice restaurant and separate bar overlook the pool area.

It's only a short drive to Noosa or the river for some great restaurants (see my other reviews) and you can hire bikes if you're feeling energetic. The mangrove walk opposite is a pleasant short walk.

The service is great and all the staff very friendly. Any problems are seen to efficiently. Loved the washing machine and dryer and clothes horse for drying outside. Our discounted priced meant we only got one service on our three bedroom apartment but I opted to pay for two additional services during our stay and was able to wash towels as required.

Only letdown was the noisy pool construction (and the current pool did look bigger in the photos too) and that was the only comment from the kids too. It will be nice to see the area when the extensions are complete.

Overall a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend if you're looking for spacious, quality accommodation.

Dear kiwimum35,

Thanks for your review and I was pleased your extended family had a great holiday. It is difficult to get across how spacious the 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom lagoon apartments are and I thought your use of capitals "apartment was HUGE" did a fantastic job. Well Done!

We are very excited about our 2nd heated pool; kids water splash park, 2 small water slides, toddler pool with sandy beach and kids playground to be completed by mid-December. For the benefit of others, the existing heated lagoon pool with sandy beach is still open as normal and no apartments are impacted by the works.

We always enjoy our New Zealand visitors so I hope you get the chance to visit Noosa again one day.

Regards
