Stayed at the Catalina Resort for 2 nights. I arrived after 9.30pm on the Sunday evening and reception was closed finding the keys in the night safe was easy, realizing that the round disc was not part of the key chain but the electronic key to get into the front door, not so much. The room was a little tired... More

Location and view from room was fabulous. Near surf club and patroled beach. Games room a bit tired. Pool and spa nice. Suggest if you want to play tennis you take your own rackets and balls because you can only use theirs during office hours which is limited on weekend. A shame that wifi was not free!

The two in the new tower were light, bright and modern, and came with twin bathrooms The unit in the other was reasonably spacious but seriously dated, with a particularly shabby (single) bathroom. All rooms had stunning ocean views. Tip: make sure you book in the 'new' tower - a... More

We stayed 5 glorious days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had a two bedroom a/cond apartment on 12 floor in Tower 2. The view of the Ocean and surfing beach was fantastic. It is very close to Surfing Beach and many restaurants near by. The units are also close to Cotton Tree shopping Centre. Each apartment comes fully equipped and... More

Location great. View lovely. Service poor and unfriendly. Cleaning left a lot to be desired, you could scrape the dirt off the windows and doors. Allocated car par not availabe for the full 10 days booked. Even had to beg for toilet paper.

Everything was how one wants it for location, accommodation and a delightful part of Maroochydore if you like cafes and restaurants. It was also on the bus route to Sunshine Plaza so one didn't need to follow maps to get around. The staff were fabulous and extremely helpful. I would definitely stay at Catalina Resort again if I was visiting.
