Sixty miles north of Brisbane, the Sebel Maroochydore is a 15-story modernist gem on Australia’s idyllic Sunshine Coast. Overlooking Maroochydore Beach, the property’s gleaming white exterior and secluded outdoor pool area are in perfect keeping with the 47 contemporary, light-filled guestrooms. The spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments are all equipped with gourmet kitchens, spa baths and private, furnished balconies with sea and pool views. Blessed with almost 300 days of sunshine a year, the region is perfect for outdoor activities of all kinds: surfing, fishing, golf, paddleboarding and beach cricket, to name but a few. In the evening, relax in the hot tub, sauna or steam room, and, if the mood grabs you, enjoy the perfect weather on the rooftop barbecue deck. Don’t miss the stellar seafood restaurants at nearby Sunshine Plaza or the fine beaches at Noosa and Mooloolaba. Families are well catered to: There’s a separate children’s pool and babysitting services upon request.
In the Area
In the heart of Australia’s Sunshine Coast, Maroochydore’s pristine stretch of golden sand is dotted with upscale delis, restaurants and bars. Enjoy Greek, Chinese and Lebanese cuisine on the waterfront, or browse the boutiques and bargains at nearby Sunshine Plaza. The resort is within easy reach of Noosa Beach, the region’s surf capital, Mooloolaba Beach, home to some of the best whale watching in Australia, and the Underwater World Sea Life Aquarium, where you can snorkel with sharks. In October the region plays host to Culture Shock Food Festival, with banquet lunches, music and live entertainment spanning the entire weekend.
How to Get There
The apartment is well furnished and has everything required for a fantastic holiday. We spent a week here and it was a very comfortable experience. The ocean facing two bedroom apartment was excellent in that the bedrooms are separate from each other which ensured real privacy and quiet from my travelling partner. The service staff are responsive as required.
What could be different?
The Accor website says the room is soundproof. This is certainly not the case. The glass balcony doors are not double glazed and so traffic noise is quite loud. We stayed on the eighth floor. There was a party one night in the room next door and I could hear music whilst trying to sleep so the soundproofing between apartments is not great. Double glazing would really improve the guest experience by minimizing noise.
No restaurant which didnt really matter as lots of options within walking distance but meant no $1 breakfadt option with Accor card. Room was huge with lovely views. Bed comfy. Good option close to beach.
We had stayed here some years ago and enjoyed our sojourn. We always have a certain trepidation about making return visits in case the hotel has declined in standard but we need have had none. Our 2-bedroom 2-bathroom unit with its large balcony on the 13th floor was superb.
The kitchen was very attractive and the open plan sitting/dining area was equally pleasant. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms fine with plenty of hot water. The balcony and outside living areas were very large and our enjoyment was only tempered by the strong winds in the area that week.
Both Coles and Woolworths have large stores within a mile, there is a bottle shop just across the road to the side and a few restaurants around including the Surf Life Saving Clubs both in Maroochydore and in nearby Headland.
The unit also came with its own parking space in the basement
We found the front desk staff to be friendly and helpful in their advice.
Overall a lovely stay .
The apartments are all well appointed - it is not a "hotel". it is managed apartments with great views, huge living areas & really good appliances. Groceries are not far away, and you have a few restaurants within walking distance, too.
The place needs updating and a good detailed clean. Our apartment had mould in the bathroom and our bedroom blinds were very dirty, front door lock was dysfunctional. The kitchen was the nicest part of the apartment. Unfortunately I expected something nicer for the price.
