Great place to stay. Very handy to all amenities. Great location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great outdoor amenities. Wonderful view of the ocean. Walking distance to the shops. Parking underneath building which is a plus. Rooms very clean.

No hair drier - you can hire for $3. Minimal equipment in kitchen. A casserole dish with lid would have been useful- also lids for saucepans. Each day you have to go to the office to collect details/password for wifi. This was helpful to check email etc Washing machine was excellent. Good location- we walked a lot. Bus stop very close. Loved the comfortable king size bed.

Just stayed as a group for the Sunny Coast marathon weekend and we had 3 units. Each one was very clean and tidy with everything you needed for a short break. We had 3 good sized bedrooms in our unit, great kitchen facilities and pleasant views out across the courtyard, pool area, trees and the Pacific. Good bbq facilities too along with a games room and small heated indoor pool. There are 3 levels and about 36 units in total. The building is not ultra modern, but well maintained. The managers are wonderful and this is a good place to stay out of the hustle of Mooloolaba (about an 800 metre walk south). Alex Surf Club is about 600m north. You need a car to get all around the Sunshine Coast, but this is a good central sort of base.

Stayed here for a couple nights on our way home from a trip further north. Location is great short walk down to Mooloolaba beach front dining and shops and only a small drive to sunshine plaza or any other prt of the sunny coast you want to see. Room was very spacious and indoor pool was great to take the little one for a swim as it was too cold in the lagoon pool. Will consider this place again next time we visit the Sunshine Coast.

We spent a few days at Headland Tropicana Resort recently and had an amazing time. The kitchen was completely outfitted with everything you could need to cook in the apartment. There was a gorgeous pool, sauna room and games room with a ping pong table, pool table and several arcade style games. The lady at reception was very polite and answered any questions we had.

This is an older building- maybe built in the 80's. It appeared that each unit may be individually owned, due to different furniture etc. Our unit - 18 had be renovated. It was very neat and clean as was the whole property. The one downside with the layout is that it's a u shaped building with everyone looking over the pool and BBQ area. This in itself left no privacy on the balcony. Unfortunately for us the people in the unit just below ours spent most of their day sitting on theirs, smoking.. being a non-smoker the constant smoke was really annoying and prevented us from opening windows and doors on that side. But once they left- it was great. The indoor pool and spa meant that regardless of the weather the kids could swim. The sauna was a nice touch - a traditional wood style. Location is fantastic- about 2 blocks walk to shops and the main cafe strip (try "One Up" for dinner, and the "Mooloolaba Fish and Chips " shop) Plus two patrolled beaches and surf club. We had some issues with a water leak- the management were on to it before we knew. As a result the 2nd bathroom could not be used- management were great with their response and compensation. Very fair.

Great value for money. Friendly staff. Clean and comfortable room (we stayed in number 28 - a 2 bedroom apartment) with scenic views from the balcony. All kitchen facilities were supplied. No aircon in the living areas but had aircon in the bedrooms. Beautiful breezes from the beach. Excellent amenities. Would definitely stay here again and recommend highly.

Wow!! Beautiful room with amazing view of the ocean. Both pools are crystal clear and the spa is peaceful. Can't wait to bring my daughters here next time as it's kid friendly. Games room was so much fun and a lovely inclusion. Staff were all so nice and helpful.

The unit was very clean and aired before our arrival but a little run down stove not working well, all other appliances great. Cutlery and crockery lacking a cracked wine glass meant we drink to our 35th wedding anniversary in water glasses. We had a lovely view. Pool and BBQ areas lovely and well kept.

This apartment is very tired looking and sadly not very clean. There are marks and stains on the carpets, curtains and blinds The place smelt a bit musty. A cigarette and cigar butt on the balcony and fag ash in a glass. On arrival there was no toaster and the iron was so black that I was scared to use it. We spoke to the staff about all of the above and were promptly given a new toaster and iron. The location is good but it is on a very busy road. Mandy and her staff were understanding of the problems that we had.
