Moorings Beach Resort

88 Esplanade PO Box 225 Golden Beach, Caloundra, Queensland Q 4551 Australia
Apartment 605 in the Moorings on Golden Beach Resort on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The views are spectacular both to the sea and to the mountains and this apartment was very comfortable for 6 people.  The resort has a great pool and right next to the beach. It also has its own cool cafe.  Great for romantic times or a holiday with the family.

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.

I have stayed in most of apartment buildings at Golden Beach over many years but this was the first here. I was very pleasantly surprised. The three bedroom apartment was the largest I have seen. The bathrooms, especially the ensuite was very big having a shower, separate toilet room and a spa. The beds were comfortable. The views were as expected; spectacular ocean and island vista that I know and love well. It is right on the beach across a very quiet road with clear water and very safe for the young ones. Even a very cool cafe on the property with great views of the water. Rebecca, the manager was very friendly, helpful and efficient. This will become my preferred holiday resort now.

Good
Location, location, location.
Nicely maintained grounds.
Restaurant and Cafe are great and licenced.
Rooms are spacious, views are spectacular.
Quiet resort, mostly older residents in resort.
Pool is heated slightly.

BAD
Hot water in unit comes and goes.
Pool water looks nice enough but there were brown slimey rust like stains on pool tiles and coverings in the pool, not well maintained.
Two managers, one nice, one downright rude and unhelpful.
The exercise bike, rowing machine were broken, rest of gym not really useable.
Steam room worked fine, not very clean.

OVERALL
Overpriced compared to other hotels in the same area.

Hi, thanks for reviewing the resort. We can only apologise for the hot water, it is an issue with the Body Corporate at out of our control - though we will pass this on to them also. The same unfortunately goes for your other two complaints, regarding the pool, and the broken equipment. We have been requesting action on these items for some time, but the process is very slow! It is an big concern to us as it affects our business directly. We hope next time your stay will rate higher with us. Thanks

The apartment was clean, tidy, and well maintained. Unfortunately the website images of the apartment interior do not match the reality. They seem to have a problem with the body corp. The apartments are individually owned. The management is provided by onsite managers. Judging from the apartment we stayed in, some of the owners are reluctant to spend any money on new chattels. So you have a nice apartment, great views, stunning pool...BUT old beds, old furniture, old fittings etc. The in room spa is not what is displayed on the web site, rather it is an older small bath with some spa jets. Noise from neighbouring apartments came through the walls at times. There was no air conditioning. No facility for in room internet. The location is superb, the complex is let down by the age of the interior fittings.

We thank your for your review. We agree that some apartments have not be "re-freshed" in some time and it has been a priority of management to have this problem fixed. You are right and all apartments are individually owned and decorated to their own owners likings and taste. We have recently had owners making dramatic changes to their apartments, we will continue to encourage the owners of units to keep up with the trends, and have taken all your comments on board. Please also note that 99% or units have air-conditioning and all rooms have dial up internet access.

We stayed in unit 106 and it was immaculately clean. This block is 20 years old but you would never know it. My daughter's stayed in 201 and 202 and these are great as well, I think they are newer units.

Grand kids were in the pool nearly all the time we were there and we all loved the accommodation.

Done the quieter end of Caloundra which suited us.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and I have to say it was like staying in a very bad motel in the 1970's the furniture, bedding, floor coverings where a joke and No Internet. The only upside was the view!

went back for a second time and the location is just perfection. The 2 bdm apartment was clean and spacious and well apointed. The reception i received when i called to arrange and late check in was very poor. I was booked in to a botton floor apartment initially though i had paid for a water view. The response was " well. .you booked it through one of them on line places. ..im sorry. .it's all i got !". When i insisted that i should get what i booked..i was told that she was busy and call her back later. i ended up with the room i booked..but had to call the booking agent to get it. the only other down side is no lifts. Yes that was advertised. .but it is very hard on the legs. . And people with prams..wheelchairs. .walking impairments..elderly..all cant use the resort. Think the manager needs a holiday and get away to see what hospitality really means.

Most rooms have water views and the higher you go the better the view. The higher levels have elevator access and are suitable for people with limited mobility.

Hi Anthony, If you go directly to our website all current tariffs are listed. The tariff depends on the unit size, floor level and nights you require. The longer you stay the better the rate! We do not offer concessions as you will see our rates are very reasonable and as I mentioned we discount down if you stay longer, bringing the nightly rate down the longer the stay. Please go to our web site for further information. We look forward to seeing you at the Moorings.
