Great location

Sandcastles has been a long time 'I'll get around to staying there one day' hotel and for a last minute weekend decision recently, it was a good one. Previously we've stayed at Newport that's just a block behind Sandcastles and Mantra which is the other end of the strip. Its position directly behind Mooloolaba surf life saving club so a minute walk to the beach. Within 5 - 15 minutes walk there are so many restaurants and cafes including the Surf Club that you don't have to repeat a visit for a long time. However, you always have favourites. There are boutiques underneath Sandcastles if you've forgotten swim gear or need shoes or clothes as well as all the shops along the Mooloolaba foreshore as well as side streets. If you need to get to a supermarket, Coles is up the other end of the strip - just behind Mantra but it's an easy 10 - 15 minute walk (if you're not window shopping) depending on your pace. It was a lovely surprise not to be paying for car parking and is easy to get into and out of the carpark. You enter through Parkyn Parade and turn left into the surf club car park and continue left into the one way street to the car park in between the two buildings. If you're visiting Underwater World it's just cross Parkyn Parade and a few minutes you're there and for families with younger children there are playgrounds on the footpath side of the beach at the Surf Club. We just chose a standard room and were on the second floor and had an ocean view over the top and around the side of the Surf Club. If you have a car, then day tripping around the hinterland including Eumundi Markets, Montville, Maleny, Nambour and so much more or just going up to Buderim or travel the coast to Noosa, Noosa Junction and heading in to Noosaville are all enjoyable. For runners, joggers or walkers there are plenty of choices from the hill heading to Alexandra Headland or along the beach or Parkyn Parade right around to the Point. Perhaps it shows its age in decor - the kitchenette and bathroom cupboards are perhaps 1980's, however, when it's clean and comfortable and they were made well it comes the lowest on the priorities. Our bed was comfortable and had a good nights sleep and the view was great. As we've been visiting the Sunshine Coast for decades, we didn't require tourist help, but the managers were welcoming and friendly. It's definitely worth more stays.

Excellent location

Excellent location, Hotel is located right next to restaurants and Mooloolaba beach, accommodation also includes undercover parking too which is a bonus. It has a great view, and great balcony. On the downside, the room didn't include blanket, and the furniture was a bit old.

adequate

After booking for one adult and three children, I arrived to be told there was only one bed in the room I had booked. Staff were quick to try and amend the room asap. Our room was changed to a room still with only one bed and a very uncomfortable pull out sofa. I was disappointed that my booking for three only gave one bed. The staff tried their best but the booking should have reflected the number of occupants and beds necessary.

the position of the unit is great

the position of the unit is great and also the outlook. We had a deluxe room and I thought it could have been better furnished and been up a bit higher as we were on the first floor. Unit very clean and had a large balcony for entertaining

Unit was small however we had

Unit was small however we had everything. One point however, although we asked for a sea view, most of the view was taken up with the roof of the surf club, so we had partial sea views. With the result we felt a little cheated
