We have been here a number of times. We love a pool entry unit so you can leave your towel on your balcony, swim and climb up the ladder back to the balcony. Location is perfect with no roads to cross to get to Kings Beach, or the beach boardwalk or cafes. Pool is heated up one end. If requesting a pool entry unit in October ask for the heated pool end. No one really swims up the cold end! They often have specials... Get on the mailing list or check the Facebook page.
Great location on Kings Beach, which is a nice patrolled beach. The beach is just out the door, along with a few cafes, restaurants, fish and chips and a bar. All the food we had from the nearby cafes/restaurant was great. The town center is about a 5 minute walk away, though it is uphill (downhill on the way home so it's O.K.!). The room was spacious for two people, though the spa bath was a bit small. The cons were the WiFi is only free for the first 500mb, then you have to pay. The room also has Foxtel, but that doesn't work in cloudy/wet weather, so not having internet is not great when the weather is bad. The are toiletries provided (body wash, shampoo and conditioner), but if you want any more you have to pay. Extra towels are additional as well, and you can also hire beach towels for a fee. The room is only cleaned every 8 days, and as we didn't stay that long I'm not sure if the toiletries are replaced.
This resort was great. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with balcony and ocean views which had two bathrooms, one with spa bath . Full size kitchen and laundry. Main room had queen bed with ensuite and built in robes. Twin beds in other next to toilet and separate bathroom. Our appartment had access to a private rooftop with bbq, table and chairs, 2 sun chairs, spa bath, fridge and ocean views. We also overlooked the pool which was half cold and the other half heated. There is a game room but not good according to my 10year old. We watched whales play from our balcony and dolphins from the beach,not to mention the beautiful sunrises leading into beautiful warm days. This resort is very secure and cannot be accessed without a pass. The front gate leads to the beach and cafes. There is a path that leads up to the other end of the beach and Caloundra shops about a 5-10min walk. The beach is great for kids as the waves are very small and great for bodyboarding etc There are a variety of apartments available - The 3 bedroom courtyard apartments are way big enough for two adukrs and 4 kids. - There are apartments with direct pool access but be prepared for ppol opening at 7.30am. Australia Zoo is only about 20mins drive Great place Strawberry picking about same distance Great fun for the kids. We will go back soon.
Lovely family holiday for Easter. Great location near parks, cafes and the beach is straight out the front. Clean apartment. Pool was still quite cold and almost completely in shade. Ice cream shop and fish and chips just down stairs. Short walk to the shops or can drive.
My extended family recently stayed at Rolling Surf. Self contained 3brm unit had everything and was very comfortable and room enough for six adults. Balcony overlooking the beach; patrolled beach just out the front door and within walking distance to everything we needed. Great time was had by all highly recommended.
We stayed directly over the cafes on the ocean side and it was surprisingly quiet. We had the big tri-fold siding doors pulled back most of the time so we could here the waves. Apart from the odd baby we didn't notice the noice below. While we were third floor it was only the 2nd level up, reception, gym etc below ground but still had excellent ocean views and we were able to spot whales from there. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The only possible change we would like to see is some insect screens on some of the windows so you can hear the ocean but not let the bugs in when you had the lights on. The TV was massive, the kitchen, dining and lounge are open plan and suitable for a decent size family and the furniture was comfortable throughout. The car space was good for two cars or a bit of storage like kayaks etc. Having a couple of food places directly below was convenient when we didn't want to go out too far. They offer free wifi 500mb during you stay which won't be enough for some but we could also pick up the councils free local wifi from the ocean side. Our apartment was not serviced.
We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with two small children and had a fantastic stay. Room was a little dinted here and there but had a brilliant open courtyard which opened directly on the beach. Small kid friendly touches such as plastic plates and cups made life easier. Family friendly, relaxing and a brilliant fuss free location. No roads to cross and cafes and take away closs by will be back again. Thanks Rolling Surf.
I've always been a big fan of this resort having stayed here many times before and recommended it to lots of friends. Recently I visited for a week. The reservations team were very good in accommodating my special requests (a quiet room on a high floor away from the lift). However when I got into the room the lack of attention to detail disappointed me. There was no coffee table (in it's place were two small mismatched ottomans), the back of the TV remote was held together with duct tape and there was no quilt on the bed (only a blanket!). I've never been in a hotel that doesn't provide a quilt cover all year round (but especially in winter!) Other than the above the rest of the room facilities including the kitchen and bathrooms were well maintained. The walls could use a coat of paint but this wasn't a big deal. The saving grace for this property is the spa bath in every room which I absolutely loved. In addition it's sad for the resort that the partial ocean views on the right hand side have been blocked by a new development. Of course this is no fault of the resort but it meant that I had to hang over the side of my balcony to get any type of ocean view. I'm not sure if I'll stay again. The spa in the room might just coax me back.
We had a pool side unit. The accommodation was nice. We spent four nights. Very quiet place so if you after hussle and bustle probably not for you! The heated pool was OK could of been heated a little more. Staff were very nice!! The cafe on the beach has excellent coffee and food!!
The location of this resort is amazing! The beach on the door step. The resort is okay. Not the best place I have stayed, not the worst just in the middle. We originally booked a 1 bedroom apartment with a balcony but got "upgraded" to a 2 bedroom apartment with out a balcony... the spa in the room is nice. Ours was dirty though so had to clean it, they also do not have a shower caddy or shelf in the shower so soap and shampoos etc have to go on the ground. Also the walls were scuffed and not clean. Upon receiving the invoice from the balance paid there was a charge on there for Breakfast Vouchers for $30. I questioned this with the manager and she asked me if they were stapled to our welcome letter (which they were not) I told her they weren't but she kept asking like she didn't believe me. I asked if it could be removed but she said no as it was part of the "package" but it clearly was a charge on the invoice. We had to leave early as we had a family emergency, they gave us a $70 refund for the night we couldn't stay accomodation. The manager was quite cranky and direct when she told me she could 'do this'. Probably wouldn't stay again!
