Reviewed 16 January 2014

We stayed in a 3 bedroom precinct villa - it was spacious, clean and very very comfortable. All the staff we dealt with from initially booking to checkout were professional and friendly, even when under the pump. The new kids pool area is fabulous and caters for kids of all ages. Even during school holidays, when the resort was pretty much fully booked, we never felt overcrowded (compared to Hastings St which was like a carpark). Food and service at Arcuri was excellent and the meals from Dazza's were also great. The resort is close to the main tourist strips of Noosa, but is not on top of them so is a bit more peaceful. There is a shuttle bus to Hastings St but I'd definitely recommend having a car To go anywhere else - handy if you want to head to the river or other surrounding attractions/beaches or if you have an apartment/villa and want to self cater (Coles and a Super IGA are a short drive away). Kids Club is limited but it looks like the website has just been updated to reflect the age of kids who can attend - for those like us with a child under 4 we used a local nanny service whose details we got through the resort and that worked well. Overall a great resort - we'll definitely be back.

Dear Anonymou S,

Thanks for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your Villa and in particular our new heated pool, water slides and water spray park - it has been a great success since opened before Christmas. Our Food & Beverage team will also appreciate your compliments about our bar ('Dazza's') and restaurant ('Arcuri') food and service.

It is fantastic you will be back one day and I wish your family all the very best for the remainder of the year.

RACV snapped up this resort from the receivers for half the cost the developers paid to build it, according to the manager. The quality of the apartments is first-rate. They are spacious, stylish and well equipped, and only a few years old. The landscaping is pleasing. The outlook onto the lagoon (aka swamp) was restful, and we had periodic visits from ducks and other wading birds, until they worked out that we weren't going to feed them (you shouldn't). Staff were brisk and cheery. The major downside is the location, which is not close to any of the main focal points of Noosa. There is nowhere to take a leisurely walk to. There is a free shuttle bus, but it only runs once an hour. The common areas, such as the bar, are relatively small and noisy in peak periods. Small children abound in the pool, so it may not suit the older traveler seeking to get away from it all. But a good option for families unless you want to be close to the action.

Dear MichaelTMel,

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you found the quality of the apartments and the surrounds first rate. I agree that the resort did have plenty of kids around during your stay (early January), typical of most resorts during this time. With our heated lagoon pool, Day Spa, buffet breakfast, 5 star dining in Arcuri restaurant and bigger than usual Suites, I actually think the resort is perfect for older travellers. However, for couples that are looking for some time away with minimal children around (at RACV Noosa or any resort) I would suggest booking outside of school holidays.

It was also lovely to meet your family and show you around our luxury Enclave Villas. I wish your youngest all the best with his final year of schooling.

I hope to meet you again if you get the chance for a return visit.

Regards

The resort has exceptional accommodation comprising a range of apartment style villas. Ours was a one bedroom suite overlooking the lagoon. The facility is a little remote from the action of Hastings Street or the restaurants of Noosaville but while there is a complimentary shuttle bus, a car is a must. The pool area becomes overcrowded with families during school vacation breaks, like the one we're in now. The restaurant was ok for the breakfast included in our package and the pizza bar looks a winner, but we frequented local restaurants instead of eating our main meals in.

My husband and I with our son and another couple and their son booked a 3 bedroom Villa Precinct for 10 nights over NYE. The apartment was easily one of the best I have ever stayed in - completely modern, from the premium appliances to the great furniture. The bedrooms were all large, with two of them featuring private balconies. Both the ensuite and main bathrooms were also large, and there was a great 3rd bathroom downstairs for guests.

The extra living room was great for the boys to chill out while the adults watched TV in the main lounge area. The rooftop jacuzzi was also really relaxing and well used by the boys. Can't praise it enough, worth every dollar.

The resort facilities were all fantastic - amazing pools with water slides, bar service, delicious food at the bar and lots of chairs and shade space. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No request was too hard.

Hastings Street is easy to get to by the hourly shuttle the resort provides and shops at Noosa Junction are only 7 minutes walk away.
I would definitely return to this resort for holidays.

Stayed here with my daughters (early 20's) for 4 nights over Xmas in a 2-bed apartment which was stunning and great value for money; Huge, spotlessly clean, very stylish and modern (it felt brand new) and everything required for a great stay - a large, fully equipped kitchen with top-notch appliances a breakfast bar and a large table/chairs; huge open-plan living room with tv, movies, dvd player, sound docking system; a large terrace with large table/chairs and occasional furniture, 2 large bedrooms and 2 large stylish bathrooms - 1 with a huge shower and the other with a power-shower over the bath. There was also a separate utility area with washer, dryer, sink, airer and ironing facility. Also provided was washing powder, dishwasher tablets etc. Large pool with separate fun area for young children, plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, a nice bar and a large restaurant. The food and drink which we purchased was very fresh and well-priced. We also hired a BBQ which was set up for us on the terrace. Staff were very helpful (going out of their way to find a non-stick frying pan on xmas morning for our pancakes!!). I would have liked it to be closer to the main town / beach (it was about 2.5 km) but they ran an hourly shuttle service. We really enjoyed our stay, although it's possibly best for families with younger children as the poolside was quite busy/noisy.

Just spent 5 days here and we loved it. Great rooms and facilities as well as lovely staff. Plenty of kids around but it's a family friendly place. Girlfriend loved the day spa. It's a bit of a walk to the main beach but there is frequent and free transport that makes it easy if you're not feeling energetic.

Highly recommend.
