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.

My fiance and I stayed in one of the ocean view deluxe spa apartments on level 5. The room had everything we could have needed, and we had a very comfortable stay. All of the furniture (bed, couches etc) were pleasant and we have no complaints whatsoever. The apartment had a fully stocked kitchen, although given the location we didn't really need to use the kitchen all that much.

We arrived in Mooloolaba earlier than expected on our check in day, and a quick phone call to Jo that morning had us checked in much earlier than the allocated 2pm which we were extremely grateful for. We had one issue with the front door not latching properly when it was closed, and as soon as we raised the issue with the management team they had someone there to fix it for us without any hassle. We felt like nothing was an issue for the staff and that made for a very pleasant experience.

We stayed in early March and were on the Coast for a concert. The apartment block itself was quiet and peaceful. The pool and spa are excellent. We haven't stayed in Mooloolaba itself before, but Raffles is immediately across the road from Coles and the Esplanade which have a plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants.

All in all we had a wonderful experience and would very happily recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the area. The staff were wonderful and we were very relaxed and at ease knowing we had such a peaceful and excellent place to stay. A big thank you to the team for our excellent experience!

Booked direct with the complex. Very easy process.
On arrival, we were upgraded to a roof top terrace unit.
Unit was very nice. Clean. Great location just over the road to the Esplanade and Coles and several smaller shops. Chemist etc.
The fan is main bedroom very noisey. Also, furniture on the terrace very noisey. When
we realised where noise was coming from we had to climb the narrow staircase and
move the furniture around to avoid the banging from the wind.
WiFi very unreliable. Hand towel handle very loose.
Kitchen had limited utensils and there was no
vacuum cleaner/sweeper available. Beds were comfortable.
Manager/staff very helpful.

I needed a break and was looking for somewhere where I could park my car and walk everywhere. Raffles was perfect! With Coles, a chemist, bakery and liquor store directly over the road and the beach, restaurant and shopping precinct just another minute more away I had everything I needed at my fingertips.
The unit itself was clean and beautifully furnished in a beach theme and felt much more like a home away from home than many of the places I've stayed previously. The kitchen was well kitted out if I wanted to cook for myself but there was also a huge array of different cuisines available from the nearby restaurants.
Raffles is great value for money and I would highly recommend it to anyone whether you be a solo traveller like myself, a couple or a family. I am sure I will be back again.

After 8 years staying at another place and having the new management dump on us, we found this place.
Extremely well priced for a self contained unit so conveniently placed in Mooloolaba and yet so quiet. Units are well sized (we spend 2 weeks at a time so important)
We think we have found a new holiday home 😉

We have stayed at Raffles previously and love it...such a lovely convenient place to stay. We had a 3 day break booked for this week but due to bad weather and flooding alerts we had to cancel on our day of arriving at the resort. I rang them to say that I had to cancel as good not get through flooded roads, They were extremely helpful. And even though I booked through bookings.com, the girls at Raffles did all the leg work for me and said they had no issue changing my booking to another date that suited me. Within 5 mins I had the new confirmation with the new dates, all done and dusted. And they did not charge me any cancellation fee. So so easy to deal with - Great to see there is still customer service around with a smile. Thank you so much to all the staff who helped out. Looking forward to my trip down there soon.

A lovely place to stay. Apartments are large, clean and well furnished with balconies offering privacy from other guests. The location is excellent. The beach, shopping facilities and the esplanade are all less than 50 metres from your front door. Hosts are incredibly accomodating and friendly. Would recommend and will return.
