Caribbean Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Apartment was pretty good with a large balcony, self contained kitchen and decent sized bedrooms. Kids loved the pool with its spa and "caves" and spent many hours in there. Local to everything and close to the surf club and under water world.

Stayed here early March. We had 4x1 bedroom apartments, 16, 18 14 and 12. We all overlooked the pool and our room 16, we felt had the best floor plan and all were at the rear of the building on 1st floor. There is a back entrance. All rooms had everything you could want. We walked everywhere it was sooo close to everything. Parking is in the basement and easy to get in and out. Staff were very friendly and helpful. All 4 couples stated that we would stay here again. There is no sea view but we had the pool view. Hardly in the apartment to care.

Great little unit for a weekender. Very compact. Although you don't have a view it was very neat clean very tidy. We weren't there throughout the day it was just so we had somewhere to shower and sleep. So close to all restaurants all walking distance . Would stay again if we got a good deal.

While price is reasonable for two bedroom 'apartment' at Mooloolaba, the unit (51) is in serious need of refurbishment and updating. Door frames are rusting! Air conditioner on balcony is rusted! The unit does not look like it has been painted since the building was constructed - woodwork yellowed. Door knobs. Kitchen bench falling apart. Do not lean on the bench! it is coming away from its joints. Lounge felt greasy...Windows were dirty and outside glass balcony 'fence' has not been cleaned for some time. We have stayed at Caribbean a number of times over the years but it has gradually 'decayed' without any obvious refurbishment/ repainting etc. (I do acknowledge new lift.) And, while this is more a guest problem than anything, no-one seems to enforce the rule that there is to be no alcohol or glass in the pool area: people drinking from glass bottles etc.while swimming and bombing and teaching their children how to bomb and jump from the rock feature - also not permitted supposedly. Unfortunately we will not stay at Caribbean again. Would rather pay a few dollars more per day and stay at an equally desirable location close to the Caribbean, with much better facilities and condition commensurate with the title "resort".

I would not recommend this resort to anyone. We are staying in a ground floor apartment and for the passed three days have had to put up with teenage's (both boys and girls) all non guests trespassing (jumping) over the back fence to use the pool. Also the units are advertised as self-contained, however you cannot fry an egg without the fire alarm going off. On arrival, the unit was not clean and we had to ask management to wash the cushions as they looked blood stained. Unit is dark and dingy and definitely needs an update. Internet is non- existent. Only positive is that the location is great.

Our 2 bedroom apartment, number 31 at the back of the hotel had everything we needed and was great value for money. It was modern, the balcony was great place to relax and we appreciated the foxtel. The access to the fantastic pool was easy, we enjoyed swimming some laps when it was quiet and splashing around when it was busy. Access to the beach was easy also, only a 2 minute walk and we didn't need the car once we arrived as we had everything we needed within a very short walk. Very likely to return as long as we can get another good deal.

Good location, apartment had all we needed, comfortable, and facilities such as pool and gym available. The apartment allowed us to have dine in/ dine out options and had areas close by to walk, access beach and retail outlets.

I did love the location in Mooloolaba but was a shame there was a view of a road not a beach The unit are a great size Bedrooms a great size Balcony a good size Wifi- well that's a joke it didn't work The reason we chose this resort was the pool was listed as heated and it was still cool. The pool was absolutely NOT heated and my four year old couldn't stay in the spa as it was so so hot Great spot for shops and restaurants Beds comfortable No locks on any of the doors Spa was fabulous

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the rooms that had it's own spa, it was so nice to be able to relax in your own personal spa after a big day, the spa was very modern (even had lights and the ability to turn off jets to certain sections) and the kids loved it. They were in it every chance they got. The rooms were very clean, spacious and had everything you needed, they also looked fantastic. Beds were very comfortable and they had plenty of TV channels available to occupy the kids at night. The parking was also very easy to access and there were always plenty of parking spaces available. You can't beat the location of this resort, with numerous restaurants around you'll be spoilt for choices for dinner or just cook your own meals with all utensils, pots and pans available in the apartment. With a cafe downstairs you can easily grab a cup of coffee to start the day and there is a CBA on the corner if you need a bank. The resort is also really close to the beach and underwater world. Mooloolaba has a fanstastic walk way along the beach perfect for a morning stroll. The resort has a great games room and lap pool, outdoor spa and kids wading pool. The pool being a lap pool has no shallow end so keep that in mind if you have little kids. All staff we came in contact with were very helpful and polite. The only negative I can say about this place is the wifi, we couldn't get it to work on either my laptop or the kids ipads, we could get it connected but it didn't want to work. We weren't too worried though as we spent all our time in the spa. We didn't raise this with them as we really didn't need it. I can truly say that out of all the apartments/hotels we have stayed at over the years this has been my favourite one, I'll go as far as saying we would make the 5 hour drive back to the Sunshine Coast just to stay at the resort, that is how much we loved the comfort, location and being spoilt having our own spa. For the amount we paid I don't think you could get better value.

Well Not What we Thought we were getting when we Booked to Stay at the Caribbean Resort I Thought it was one main bathroom & spa Bath & 1 ensutie.I was Wrong,But The first Apartment on the 3floor we got was facing main Road and building works around it nice new kitchen with pad locks on some cubboards and not right for couple wiith kids at all, So after I had words with Office people we ended up with a nicer apartment over looking the pool area. Only limited free amount of Internet Then you had to pay you also had to do your own cleaning and make beds But they do have washing & dryer Machine in units & dishwashers .......
