A group of five friends and myself set out to have a relaxing stay at Mariner Bay in one warm week of December. Although the stay was mostly enjoyable, i was astonishingly displeased by the fact that some BEDrooms had ginormous skylights which had no curtains. My friend and i did not get one good nights sleep due to the...

This review is written by the same schoolies group that wrote the review titled 'Patronizing Staff'. They are unhappy that they had too pay to have a carpet cleaned after leaving the shower door screen open (whilst having showers) plus also the main ensuite bathroom door so water soaked the carpet and left a big watermark.

My friends and I stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for 8 nights. During an 'inspection' of the room, my friend and I informed the staff member that there was a wet patch on the carpet directly outside our ensuite. We inquired as to whether there were any pipes in the area that may be causing the patch, to which...

This TripAdvisor Review is from a group of 'Schoolies' that stayed with us. Overall we had a great bunch of kids this year with very few incidents. I am sorry you felt that we were patronising you, that was not the case just trying to understand why the carpet was so wet so we could let the professional carpet cleaners...

Of you are looking for a clean spacious unit to enjoy with family or a small group this could be the place for you. A quick walk from town center, these units give you a quiet spot on the edge of the action. We were able to rent surf boards at a great deal a couple doors down and get...

My daughter stayed with a group of 9 girls in 2 2BR apartments for Schoolies. They said they were great apartments, clean and very spacious. Fantastic position, walking distance to beach, shops and Pub. Also, close to where lots of other friends were staying. As a parent, I liked the fact they weren't allowed to have friends back to Mariner...

Hi Lucy, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are glad the girls had a great time and enjoyed themselves.

We stayed for a week in a 3 bedroom top floor sea facing (back of block) apartment. Can't fault location. Easy flat stroll in to town. A beach track close by for access to the sea rather than walking in to town. Off street undercover parking, nice grounds & pool with BBQ area. A few gripes- Not a true 3...

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to write this review.We are sorry you were not expecting the mezzanine level bedroom - we do clearly state this on all booking sites. The apartments are designed to be open plan, light and airy and we find that most guests enjoy this. All the balconies are furnished slightly differently with most having...

Our 3 kids have all stayed at Mariner Bay Apartments for Schoolies over the last 5 years, and all had a great time. It's a great place to stay for Schoolies (and probably for a holiday at any other time too)! The owners are lovely and were very accommodating and easy to deal with. They made the kids feel welcome,...
