“Wonderful place and really lovely staff”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Loved this place, you really feel like you are in a luxury resort. The staff were super friendly, especially Stuart at the front desk. I'd recommend renting a car, so that you can take trips to Eumundi markets, Spirit house etc. We also walked into Noosa Junction and Hastings Street, not a long walk but there are hills. We enjoyed the walks though to see the surroundings etc.

I'd recommend this resort to anyone, great for families but also great for couples and solos. The pool is set out well that there is a kids area with slides (which admittedly us adults used too!) and a bigger pool too. They were building a spa when we were there so I look forward to checking that out next time. Would definitely visit again.

Thanks team RACV Noosa, we had a great time :)

Dear Rochelle Broder,

Thanks for your review and your recommendation of our resort to others. I agree with you that the resort has plenty to offer for both couples and families – from a relaxing treatment in One Spa, fun in our 2 heated pools or dinner in our 5 star restaurant or wood-fired pizza bar terrace.

Our new, massive, outdoor heated spa will be opening in about a week.

Thanks again.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 4 nights in March 2014. The resort is lovely, although a bit fr from Noosa. However, the shuttle bus provided by the resort really helped up, but the service is not very regualar. We found parking a bit difficult and had to park a long way from our accomodation. The suit was clean, well equiped and perfect for just the two of us. We woken on the Saturday night by noisy neighbors, but other than that the resort was very quiet. We stayed at the northern end of the resort near the tennis courts.
We ate out at the restaurant once and were very disspapointed. The menu seemed over complicated and had too many elements on each of the dishes. We found that a lot of the elements on the dishes didn't actually compliment each other. However, the desert made up for it. The staff at the resort were friendly and very helpful. The wine and cocktail menu was excellent, although a bit overpriced - but not too much compared to other resorts. We would return to the RACV Noosa Resort if they had any special deals in the future. I would recomend the resort for families or quiet people - not for singles or busy couples.

Room Tip: I would suggest you stay at the northern end of the resort - it is a bit quieter, away from the pool...

Dear Mel4178,

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you found the 1 bedroom Suite and the resort lovely. It is great you made good use of our 21 seater shuttle bus. For the benefits of others, we are 2km from Main Beach/Hastings Street (a 20-25 minute walk) and our bus runs hourly during peak periods and around every second hour off peak.

I appreciate you recommending the resort to others and I am thrilled that you will return some day.

The RACV Noosa Resort was a great quick Family getaway. A quick drive to Hastings Street and the beach (or by shuttle), and very quiet on the grounds, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Service was fantastic, the food was excellent, and our 3 bedroom condo was quiet and well appointed. Beds were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet wasn't overrun, and was very tasty, with heaps for every taste. The best part was the terrific pool area for the kids. We'll definitely be back.

Dear Smiley D, thank you for your review. It was great that your family had such a nice time at our resort. I am pleased your kids enjoyed our new 2nd pool area, water slides and water splash park and next time you visit you will be able to experience our new, massive, 7 metre X 3.5 metre outdoor heated spa which is due for completion in the next 4 weeks.

Thanks again and all the best for 2014.

Celebrating a 50 birthday with a group of 5 friends, the resort ticked all the boxes. Accommodation was first class as were the amenities, we shared a 3 bedroom precinct villa with roof top spa, which was roomy and well serviced.
The breakfast was superb with a great selection of hot and cold foods, I am a coeliac and they catered for me without a problem.
The staff were extremely helpful booking restaurants and outings. Thankyou to Darren and his team, a great stay. Will definitely return.

Dear Antonella Baschera,

Thank you for your review and I was thrilled you and your friends enjoyed your 50th birthday celebration in our 3 bedroom Villa with rooftop Spa. The resort is becoming increasingly popular for girls trips away given our larger than average sized apartments, relaxing Day Spa and wide range of food and beverage options.

We hope it becomes an annual event and we get to see you all again some time.

This was our third stay at RACV Noosa. We continue to go back because it is a great place for families, it is clean, the location is good, and it is (normally) quiet. Since our last visit, the resort has added a new water park area for children. The new water play area for kids is wonderful!

We were disappointed to be staying in an area of the resort where a wedding party was also staying. This made it difficult for parking as all of the spots near our apartment were taken, as well as up to 15 cars lining the street up to our apartment. The resort has a parking garage available, so it would have been nice for the wedding party guests to use the parking garage and leave the parking spots available for those who were actually resort guests. The resort takes your car registration details, but apparently do not monitor the parking situation closely.

Also, one of the nights on our stay we were woken up by two drunken men (wedding guests) arguing in the car park. Their arguing eventually turned into a fistfight which caused other hotel guests to come out and try to get the men to quiet down. Security was called, but when security finally arrived, one of the men was leaving. Although this was not the hotel’s fault, it would have been nice if they were monitoring the party more closely.

Upon checkout we brought up the situation to the front desk employee and only received an “I’m sorry.” I guess I was expecting more than an “I’m sorry” paying so much at a nice resort to be woken up by grown men fighting outside my bedroom window.

Dear jofarmer7,

Thank you for your review.

I was extremely disappointed when briefed over the weekend about the disruption caused by the wedding party. We absolutely do not allow or tolerate any guest, for what ever reason, to have a party in their apartment. We attended that room at 9.52pm in response to a noise complaint and asked them to turn the music off, get indoors and be quiet. We attended the room again at 10.18pm and advised that the next visit to the room will be with the police if they did stop all noise. My understanding is that not too long after that the noise stopped. The argument that occurred in the car park was between 2 men not staying at the resort. We responded as soon as we were aware of this incident and as you described, they vacated the resort when our staff arrived.

It is very frustrating to us when people behave inappropriately with no respect for others and we genuinely apologise for the impact that this caused to your stay. It was a very unusual incident for our resort.

As you have already emailed your feedback to me seperately I will provide further follow up directly.

Regards

My wife and I received 2 nights accommodation in a 1 Bedroom Sanctuary Apartment as a wedding present. I was very impressed with the layout, size, cleanliness and decor in our room it looked fantastic and the bed was huge, possibly didn't need such a thick duvet on it but easy enough to remove. The resort is a little far away from town but getting there is easy as they provide a free shuttle but to me Hastings street and surrounding area is highly overrated anyway so we mainly stayed at the resort and relaxed. The pool area was quite big and well appointed with water slides and play area for children a sand beach and plenty of places to relax in the sun. Included in our accommodation was the Buffet breakfast which my wife and I found amazing it had a huge range to choose from and really did cater to every bodies tastes, you would have to be extremely fussy to not enjoy it. Overall I thought the RACV resort was the perfect accommodation if you are looking for a luxurious place to relax and unwind.

Room Tip: Get a free buffet breakfast package if possible

This is our third time staying here and the second time in a 3 Bedroom Sanctuary Apartment for a full week. With three children 3 and under we opted for a ground level appartment and it was fantastic. The new addition of the kids warterpark and the playground is fantastic and will be a favourite for most kids. As my wife says "all they need now is a games room" and i think one of those big bouncy pillows would be awesome too.
The staff were simply fantastic and all treated us so well, especially the children, it was so nice to see this kind of customer service and we will indeed keep coming back while that is what is on offer. Even the cleaning staff took the extra time to do the little things, like positioning our childrens blankies on their pillows and of course left the place looking spotless.
We are already looking forward to returning next year and checking out the spa that was being installed just after our visit.
Thank you to all the staff there for a wonderful week.

Room Tip: If you have small children then a ground floor room helps with prams.

I was delighted your family had another great stay with us and enjoyed our new 2nd heated pool with the water slides, splash park and playground. As you mentioned, the next addition is a massive 7 X 3.5 metre outdoor heated spa opening in early April. Thanks to your wife for her ideas on what we could do next!

I thank you for your visiting the resort three times now and all staff genuinely appreciate your kind words.
