Went up with friends for a 5 night break. We had 2 X 2 bedroom apartments. They were nice apartments and they were very clean, however they both smelt a bit musty and the solution was to put on the A/C but it was so loud you could not sleep. The balcony was lovely and spacious however you looked down to the car park. Only the top few floors have a glimpse of the ocean. Swimming pool was in the shade all day and needed a good clean. Did not use it at all. The apartments themselves were good value for money as they were well set out and had everything you needed. The open plan bathroom with exposed toilet, meters from the bed, did not work when sharing with friends. The supposedly free wifi did not even connect although we tried for days. We left after only two days, forfeiting our money, as we found it depressing and did not feel like we were on a holiday. If you are on a budget, this place is good value as the location is one street back from the main road and close to shops. Just make sure you just sleep there and get out all day!

We stayed two nights at Cilento Mooloolaba for a friends 40th birthday. We stayed in a two bedroom unit which was quite well appointed. Decor was a little tired but the unit was quite clean. Staying one street back from the beach it was a lot quieter than staying on The Esplanade. We are locals so it was the convenience factor and cost. Very affordable compared to staying on the beach and everything is still very accessible. We actually got to explore First Avenue stores and restaurants that we wouldn't have done if we stayed on The Esplanade.

Last minute two night stay. Great location and walking distance to restaurants and beach. Stayed in two bedroom unit that was clean, tidy and good amenities. The quality of our beds was a problem as they were very hard and it was not a comfortable sleep for the kids and I. Glad we only had to sleep on them for two nights. Otherwise, no complaints.

Just had a 10 night stay at the cilentro, definitely will not go back, grubby, in need of a good clean, and update. Security compromised by the bar/restaurant next door, whose patrons have an agreeement with cilentro, to use the toilet facilities, therefore security doors not locked at night. During 10 nights room was not cleaned, and had to ask for clean towels. Internet was also at a premium rate.

2minutes to Coles off street parking apartments very roomy clean modern. Has a great bar downstairs and a new Tapas bar opening soon also. so close to esplanade beach and restaurants bus stop is convenient to large Maroochydore shopping centre RSL club and Mooloolaba bowls club within walking distance, wonderful Thai restaurant across the car park

our family of 6 stayed and enjoyed a 3 bedroom apartment, ideal as each bedroom had its own ensuite, plenty of room for everyone to sit and enjoy a meal together, the kitchen is very well equipped. We stayed on the 10th floor and being a Friday and Saturday night the bar downstairs was very busy and the noise could be heard in the main room, this wasn't an issue for us as we enjoyed the music but may be for some. Perfect location, will stay here again

Value for money. Modern, clean and comfortable. Seems recently renovated/painted. The main bedroom is 'open plan'. No bathroom door- no privacy. Also, no early morning winter sun with sorrounding buildings blocking the sun.

Stayed 2 nights with family,enjoyed stay had spa bath in room clean and tidy close to everything would stay again 👍was on level 5 no ocean view but was ok with this nice bar down stairs,and Coles close by plus off street parking

We recently spent a four-day break with family at Mooloolaba, with all six of us staying in one large and spacious apartment. Each couple had their own room with en-suite, thus ensuring privacy while giving the option to gather in the single-area kitchen and loungroom. We sat out on the generous-sized balcony in the evenings, looking over the street below, row of apartments to the east and the ocean beyond. We ate out most of the time, but the kitchen was well-appointed should you wish to self-cater. Laundry facilities are provided. The famous shopping and dining precinct lining the shore-front was very close, as was the beach itself. The apartment totally fulfilled its purpose.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights over the Australia Day long weekend on the 4th floor. We did not want to pay a huge amount of money, so Cilento seemed to be reasonable as all the prices were inflated over this period due to Australia Day. Our unit was spacious and the balcony was very large. You do however look straight into the back of another hotel, but in all fairness, if you look at the website for Cilento you know in advance what to expect. The hotel was only one street back from the main beach, restaurants and shops. It also has a fantastic restaurant/bar downstairs called "The Good Bar" which has great food at reasonable prices. The downside was our bedroom was at the back of the unit and was extremely dark and if you opened the curtains everyone would be able to see in, especially as you had to keep the lights on to see anything. The cleanliness of the unit needs a lot more attention to detail also. Overall Cilento is a good inexpensive place to stay and close to all the main areas of Mooloolaba.
