« A wonderful weekend away »

It was nice coming this time of year (June) it was quiet, the sun was shining and the heated pool was perfect. We enjoyed lunch in the restaurant and my husband was really relaxed after a massage. It was also so much fun playing tennis (something we haven't done since before kids) Our only 'negatives', if you can call them that, was the detailed cleaning in the bathroom sink, grout etc coukd have been better. I understand it isn't a new room but around the plug holes and the exit hole at the top of the sink looks like it could do with a toothbrush scrub. There was no toilet brush (unsure if that is normal and i understand why but would hace been handy with a toddler ha) The bed was pretty uncomfortable We were on a non smoking level, we had an ashtray on out table outside and I could smell someone smoking a few times (unsure if it was on another floor?) Overall we had an absolutely wonderful time and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. There was an abundance of clean towels and the cleaner did a great job doing what they could in toddler decorated room.

We always enjoyed staying at The Pelican Waters Resort. Staff were friendly, free parking & wifi were appreciated. Unfortunately, the room has not been dusted for a while.

« Very nice and relaxing with amazing views »

The resort was clean and well maintained with rooms in a very good condition for a facility that’s 13 years old. The staff was very polite at the front and very helpful. The view is amazing we had a pool view room but all rooms come with a nice view too.

« Peaceful Family Vacation »

Reception staff were lovely (Nikita especially) when we checked in and throughout the stay, and the room was very comfortable - well designed too. The Grill had amazing food and we ate there for at least one meal every day. Rebecca was amazing running the restaurant almost single-handed. For what we paid it was extremely good value - will definitely be back!

« It was fairly comfortable and relaxing. »

I found it overall to be quite nice. However, a few things occurred, which although minor gliches, could have been avoided with a bit of care. Firstly, when I arrived at reception, no one was there for 5 mins, so I wandered as thought I must be in the wrong place, went back and someone turned up. Secondly, I thought it inappropriate, that no biscuits are available with tea/coffee provided. After a long journey, a cuppa and biscuit is very nice. Everyday motels do it, so was surprised that a resort would not at the very least do the same. Thirdly, I booked online and paid for wine and breakfast at the same time. It was a bit embarrassing to be told "My room is not on the list, you will have to pay for breakfast" in front of other guests. When, I said I had paid online she went and checked, then came back and said'sorry'. Someone had made an error. Interesting to see 'fake' smiles at reception appear,disappear, appear.... bit obvious really.

« If I had an option to leave I would have »

We booked this "luxury" hotel using luxury escapes thinking we would "spoil our children with a special holiday before they had a scouts camp so we took them out of school the Friday to enjoy a few days on the Sunshine Coast. After booking the accommodation I did not receive any confirmation emails from the hotel (however this was my fault as my email address had changed) so I called and I believe I spoke to Lucy who emailed me a confirmation letter, when I spoke to her I confirmed I had 2 adults and 2 children staying for 3 nightsand I also confirmed that we had a spa room with breakfast which she confirmed! great we were on our way as soon as the kids were home from school! After a long trip from the Gold Coast stuck in Peak hour traffic we arrived at your hotel at about 8.30-9pm we stood at reception for a bit but finally a man came over and greeted us and said you must be the Smiths and checked us in, at this stage he did say something like ummm do you realize the room only has one bed.. I was just like yea thats fine the kids are going to camp they are only staying 2 nights assuming they were on a fold out sofa or pull out bed or something.... (I think I was just tired and excited I wasn’t paying full attention ) Well how wrong was I Getting to the room the kids ran in with excitement, my husband and i look at each other and try and work out how to turn the couch into a sofa... nope it doesn’t... we then look in the cupboard for some fold out beds..nope nothing... so I called back down to reception... the response was " well I told you it only had 1 bed" if you want rollaways its $30 per bed per night! ARE YOU SERIOUS???? So that would add an extra $180 to my stay? So I guess my kids are expected to sleep on the floor with nothing?? nice service...but lucky us had sleeping bags and pillows in the car so the boys enjoyed a hard floor for the 2 nights! We also had no towels for the boys in the room so I called down asking if we could get som towels for the boys.. the response was just as rude .. if you want towels come down to reception and get them.. maybe my expectations were to high for this hotel. So then we proceed to breakfast in the morning... We give our room number and we tell the waiter we have breakfast included in our package and he tells us to help our self to the buffet and get a table so kids get some food and then once they have food on the plates the waiter then comes over and tells us breakfast is only for 2 OH MY GOD this is a night mare.. so I speak to the restaurant manager she has a zero care factor This was the last morning we all ate at the buffet... I then spoke to the front office manager about the room situation and she also has a zero care factor and tells me that its luxury escapes problem for allowing 4 people to be booked into the room. HOWEVER I have a confirmation from your hotel direct stating 2 ADULTS and 2 CHILDREN for 3 nights So how can you do this to famalies who work hard and save hard to take kids on a holiday for the children to go back and say... oh we slept on the floor! I don’t ever ask for compensation however this holiday was not what I paid for and I believe that you should either offer my family 3 nights accommodation or a refund as we did not get what we paid for Lynette S. 04…

« Average »

Stayed here for a few times when it was Crowne Plaza. Stayed here every time when I visit Caloundra. I'm not a member of Accor so I didn't expect any service from the hotel. However, I think the price is a bit too high. Not sure about the level of the brand whether it's a full service or selected service, as I'm not familiar with Accor, but it looked like it's not a full service hotel to me. However, it was charging a rate of full service hotel. Given its location, level of service and room condition, I think A$200+ for a standard room was a bit too high. The night before I stay in this hotel, I stayed in Surfer's Paradise Marriott. My reservation was a junior suite (booked, not upgraded to) and the price is also A$200+. I'm a platinum member of Marriott/SPG and Diamond member of Hilton. I hope I have enough experience to rate.

« Restfull and refreshing »

The whole experience was very nice. The only thing we felt that would make big difference was changine the room air conditiioner for one that is quieter. Throughout the night it would switch on and roar as it blew air into the room.

The golf club has no association with your resort, with no special rates. The resort is a golf resort ? All signs show this. The room was very good as expected. The only problem was a loud small freezer
