Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The guest rooms here rate no more than 3-star. While fairly clean and with good beds and fair but small ensuite, they need new carpets and just a bit of care around the edges. Our room was quiet, on the upper level. A bit of money spent on the rooms would lift them to a higher level. Room servicing was good.
We booked direct. They are a reasonable price for this region. We were given drink vouchers and breakfast pack each day, and discounted meals in the adjoining hotel, which we enjoyed immensely. The guestrooms are small, but we used the large Kawana Hotel and its marina outlook as our lounge. This made our experience better.

Renovated rooms, excellent beds (apart from the single skating across the room when you sat on it) plenty of space, clean, flatscreen tv, 10 mins walk to beach. Dan Murphy's, Hungry Jacks, sushi, chinese and IGA 2 mins walk across the carpark. Kawana shoppingworld across the road with plenty of eateries. Easy 6klm return walk up to Pt Cartwright. Restaurant onsite has lovely view and good food.

Hanging space not suitable for long dresses and the pool was dirty (possibly due to Christmas break, it was cleaned before we left) and has some uneven pavers that need attention, shower was very small but excellent shower head

We booked in here when we were attending a 21st birthday party at the hotel. Booking was made via email and was very efficient. Rooms were clean and bedding was OK but nothing special. When we showered in the morning realised we only had 2 towels even though the booking was made for 3 people. As reception was closed we had to make do with what was provided. Convenience to the function venue was the reason for staying here and would do so again if attending the hotel for a function. I would recommend this motel only if attending a function at the hotel otherwise there are better options for the same price a short distance away.

From the outside, the venue doesn’t look much. That’s because it all faces over the beautiful marina. The venue is modern, very clean and the staff friendly. Our meals were 10/10. Six of us dined - steaks melt in your mouth and pizza delicious. Highly recommend

The hotel is nice and clean staff were good. The issue is the hotel is above the pub which does not close until 2am. It was very very noisy and. Oils not get any sleep until after the pub shut. The room was also above the smoking area of the pub, could not sit on the balcony as you could only breath in the smoke. Would not stay there again.

We booked into the Kawana Waters Hotel as an overnight stop as I was running the Sunshine Coast Half Marathon the next day. The website seemed to show the hotel as fairly modern and 2.5 stars. When we arrived and entered our room I realised this was far from the case.

Firstly it should not be called a Hotel as it is clearly a Motel. The room was in a poor state of repair with a hole through one of the internal doors (which led to a stairwell containing old mattresses). There were cigarette burns on the bed cover and the bed itself/mattress was extremely worn. The decor was awful - very dated and the bathroom had mold in various places. It was one of those places where you want to spend as much time away from the room as possible - returning only to sleep.

It is also a very noisy place as the rooms are right next to the sports bar and the outdoor seating area.

One plus side was that the room had a nice flat screen TV although I would have proffered a nice room and a black and white tv!!

It cost $90 for the night - I'm not sure if that is very cheap by Australian standards so that may be why it was a poor experience.

I wouldn't recommend the hotel to others - there are lots of nice resort hotels in the area so have a look around.
