Mandolin Resort Apartments
Reviewed 10 August 2013

loved the apartment when we were there in 2012 having a much needed break from the Christchurch earthquakes .Breathtaking views, everything great with our apartment. The social get togethers arranged by Kae & Colin were a bonus & fun. Booked again for longer this year but at the last minute had to cancel. The kindness shown last year to 2 quake weary Kiwis & the good wishes this year after my accident were very heartwarming. Our deposit was returned in full immediately along with a very nice note.
Husband says he would always stay at the Mandolin after this. Thank you Colin & Kae .SO looking forward to coming back .

Sylvia & Robert,

The money saved in cleaning is passed on with affordable accommodation.I was glad I had my own dishes with me. Management were quick to respond to any issues I had and were friendly. The view is the best I've had on the Sunshine Coast. Good facilities in the complex, next to beach and lots of great eating places at affordable prices. Whole atmosphere was friendly with a lot of repeat guests.

We spent a night in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit. Location excellent - directly across from Surf Club & patrolled beach. Unit was clean and comfortable. Excellent views of the beach. Complex had outdoor pool, spa, kids pool, tennis court. Very friendly staff who offered us early check in and late departure without us even asking. Close to takeaway shops & cafes. Great for a relaxing family holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for beach views.

Look, if you're really fussy, it doesn't pass the white glove test, (but with little kids that's actually an advantage!!) and they are stingy with soap, dish washing detergent and tea/coffee. However, from apartment 42 on the tenth floor we had amazing views of the ocean, beaches, and parks, stretching from Mooloolaba to beyond Noosa and the northern hinterland. We were across the road from the (patrolled) beach, surf club and parks, and next to shops, restaurants and a bus stop. Our undercover car spot was right next to the elevator. The staff were very friendly and the pool and barbecue facilitities were refurbished and spotless. (although the spa is still not working properly). The unit itself is spacious, light and airy, neat and tidy and well eqipped with a newish kitchen and updated decor. It has an internet connection but no wifi, so bring your laptop and ethernet cable. Apartment 42 was one of the only ones with grills on the windows and a fenced off aircon unit (but no flyscreens). Still, my heart jumped out of my mouth everytime my two year old pushed at the low glass window behind tthe lounge. We'd recommend a detailed clean of the tops of appliances, skirtings and window sills, under lounges and beds, and built up grime in the bathrooms. Would we come back again? Absolutely yes!

Room Tip: Ask for room 42 (except for when we do!!) or one facing the road!

We booked for a week during school holidays a month in advance. Price came down by $40 a night closer to time so we were not happy. Views from living and bedrooms was stunning and thats about where it stops. Place needed a good spring clean, smelt and was very dated. If we had paid current wotif price we would not have minded so much as it would have been a good price for basic facilities. Location is all this dated place has going for it. Felt like it needed a really good clean.

Room Tip: Wait till last minute to get a good deal. Have washing machine in room which is handy.

We enjoyed 8 nights at Mandolin and were impressed by the facilities. Renovations to outside facilities had just been completed and BBQ area, swimming pool, tennis courts, etc were of a very high standard. Our unit on the 8th floor was front facing which gave us beautiful views up and down the coastline - absolutely first class. The unit itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Mandolin is close to everything - just across the road from Surf Lifesaving Club - local bus stop just outside and within easy walking distance of the coffee shops at Mooloolaba. We would recommend Mandolin for a relaxing holiday for couples and families. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hope we can visit again one day.

Room Tip: The higher floors and the middle front facing units give the best views.

We recently enjoyed a short holiday at Mandolin with the family. The new pool area was fanstastic for the kids and the apartments were clean and very comfortable. We went to Mooloolaba for the triathlon and really appreciated being offered a late checkout on Sunday. It made getting out with kids after the tri very relaxed and we really appreciated the gesture. It's far enough from Mooloolaba to be out of the hectic traffic and pace. A perfect family destination. Great restaurants close by as well.
