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.

+ location on the esplanade, unit (4) layout, amenities including a private bbq and very large courtyard, decor and cleanliness, quick elevator, luggage trolleys were small and plentiful; easier to use than a large trolley, most agreeable hosts and only about 20 apartments in the complex. The local bus goes everywhere and is easy to access from either end of the esplanade or a street behind the accommodation.
- tight carpark so park the car and walk/bus everywhere. Limited view from the courtyard apartments (4&5). No air-conditioning in the bedrooms (unit 4) is no issue in winter but could be in summer

Excellent ocean view... I Loved it.
at least one dishwashing tablet for each day will be appreciated. was given only one for 3 nights stay. (can buy a dishwashing tablet for a dollar each in reception)

The Internet network connection was very poor, unable to open apps on TV such as Netflix. Need some fixing... otherwise all good.
Thank you.

We stayed two nights at Malibu Mooloolaba. We stayed in Unit 18, which was a beautiful 2-bedroom apartment with ocean views on the 19th floor. The apartments are very conveniently located on the main strip of Mooloolaba esplanade, very close to cafés, bars, shopping, and most importantly, the beach. Our group was myself, my sister and my mother, so it was perfect size for us. It would also be perfect size for a couple with two children. The apartments were very well-kept. It was a surprise to find a spa bath in the main bathroom, and the main bedroom also had an ensuite. Cleanliness was on point, and there was hand sanitiser in the lift, clearly showing consciousness about hygiene during COVID-19. Overall, Malibu Mooloolaba is excellent value and very much recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in a two bedroom, two bathroom unit on the 5th floor. It had spectacular full ocean views and a full kitchen which was great. Of course there's also many restaurants to try in the area too - all walking distance. All the appliances in the unit worked including the large spa bath. I loved the decor/styling of the rooms and living area - especially the large leather corner shaped lounge, instead of the usual small lounge you get in a lot of places. The building is nice and quiet, with families or couples mostly - the only noise is from the esplanade on busy nights which didn't bother us at all. We'll definitely stay again and will recommend the Malibu to family/friends. Thanks!

From the moment we arrived the receptionist could not be more accomodating. She was warm, friendly & very extremely helpful. We spent 7 nights & stayed in a 2 bedroom roof top apartment with jacuzzi. The apartment was beautiful, clean & the view was simply breathtaking. Sitting inside the sea breeze would blow in from the balcony when we had the door open & looking out you can see nothing but ocean & hear the waves crashing, just magical.
All the room amenities worked including the spa in the main bathroom & it was great to have Foxtel which had a great selection of channels (made Hubbie & son very happy). It was so nice to have our own rooftop which had a bbq, seating area, 2 person jacuzzi & two sun loungers. I found myself sneaking away for me time up there to relax in the jacuzzi & then read my books on a sun lounger while bathing in the warm sun.
You couldn’t find a better location than Malibu apartments if you tried. We have been coming to Mooloolaba for 20+ years & this is the best spot so far. You are pretty much in the middle of the esplanade & within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops & the beach is just a jump across the road. Directly next to the apartment is the Lolly Shop & the chemist which is very handy as they also sell beach equipment like boogie boards, hats etc.
10/10 would recommend this accommodation to anyone, it truly shows the best that Mooloolaba has to offer.

Absolutely perfect spot, with uninterrupted views of Mooloolaba beach. So close to cafes, restaurants, shops, the beach - everything you need within a few a hundred metre radius. Free car parking onsite (though very narrow, so don't bring a big car!)
Only drawback was the unit is quite dated, and long and skinny so not a lot of natural light. I felt it wasn't quite worth the money that it cost per night.

If you want great views & great location - stay here, but if you want something modern and fresh, I'd stay one street back and get a lot better value for money.

Great place to stay, view from balcony excellent. Booking staff were very helpful, I was able to talk to staff whilst viewing the rooms via the internet. We though the rooms were a little dated but they were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipt. Having the shops , beach and restrauants on your doorstep was ecxcellent. We would definately stay again, we moved rooms during our stay, (this was previously arranged due to full house) however, we prefered the South side of the building as we felt it offred more privacy.

This is our second time staying here. The location is perfect at the centre of the esplanade and the rooms open up and overlook the ocean. It comes with a parking space and a fully equipped kitchen. Nothing more you would need!

We had a 8 day stay at the Malibu Mooloolaba. We were on the 10th floor room 21 which had it's own private rooftop BBQ area & sun lounges. The Views were just Amazing, we had a 180 deg from the balcony looking all the way down the Coastline to Alexandra headland's & beyond! Stunning especially at night.
We had a one bedroom apartment which was very neat & tidy.
Our only complaint was the air conditioning. There was aircon in the living/kitchen area which worked so well BUT the cool air didn't reach the bedroom which got so hot & humid especially after showering!! There was a ceiling fan which had to be on during the night!
A big thank you to the managers (especially Susie) who were always very helpful.
We would definitely come back & stay at The Malibu!

We stayed in apartment 20 over the June school holidays and the staff were very accomodating in being able to arrange this unit on a last minute request.
The spa on the roof top was a delightful addition, very warm and clean with amazing views.
The apartment was well maintained and clean, it would be a little small for 4 people but for 2 adults and 1 teen it was more than enough. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed but found the surrounding restaurants affordable and easier :-).
My only small complaint was the towels were a little thin but I'm a little fussy on linen!!

Perfect location, friendly staff and the most amazing views.

Overall we would stay again.

Hi Jason, Yes we have full lift access from the car park to all levels. The only thing that would involve stairs is access to the pool on level 2 which has approx 12 stairs. Kid Regards, Richard
