Room 204 loungeroom stinks of urine, rest of unit has a very unpleasant odour, had to leave outside door open to air whilst sleeping. Very uncomfortable bed and hand and finger marks all over walls and doors. Rating does not allow me to do 1/2 out of 5......good shower that's about it.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. Clean, well equipped with spa bath in main bedroom ensuite. Reception staff are helpful and friendly. Don't come here if you want a view. But dining beach etc are just across the road and through the arcade. Security is good and plenty of parking. They don't stress about which spot you use as...

There's a construction site right next to it. Very noisey aircon. No privacy in the master bathroom! Old furniture and kitchen appliances. Gave us a room on second floor although it didn't look very busy. We didn't enjoy the overall experience in this apartment...

Located one street back from the beach, this hotel is close enough to get all the Esplanade offers, but not so close as to get all the noise- especially on a weekend- although there is some that travels up from the bar downstairs. However, there's a construction site next door, & QLD builders start early. Plus, the airconditioner can be...

There is a new block of units being built next door and work starts at 6:30 am and goes till 5:00 pm I would say that construction will be on going for the next 4 months so check if the work is finished before You book.Basement parking is very tight.This unit block is very noisy as the sound echoes between...

Stayed for a week. Location good and only one street back from beach. Balcony looks into another building though. Lots of noise as building going on next door. Woke to the sound of drills each day. Units are spacious and clean enough but the lounge was the most uncomfortable I've ever sat on so not enticing to have a night...

The choice of hotel was totally out my hands given it was for business. What a perfectly positioned hotel. One street back from the esplanade it was a very spacious and quiet apartment. The main bedroom was a huge queen with spa and shower. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear - sometimes you get a frypan and tongs!...

I stayed at Cilento with my young family in late July. I phoned earlier to make sure my extra requests were met eg. cot and high chair and also used the opportunity to ask about views. I was told there weren't really views but we'd be put in a room that did have a bit of a corner view. On...

Let's start with the positives.... Location ok, not beach front but one street back. Roomy unit. Heated pool & gym Friendly staff Now the negatives.... The unit needs a proper cleaning to remove dust and mould. Mould is everywhere, on curtains, in vents, on walls, on bathroom windows. Worn curtains and carpet fraying. Extremely strong cleaning smells are overpowering. Drain...

We stayed a couple of night at Cilento in Mooloolaba at the end of June as part of our drive around Australia. The hotel is well-kept, clean, quiet and close to everything you need to see and do in the Sunshine Coast. We had a sea-view 2 bedroom apartment and it had a great kitchen that we barely used but...
