Peppers at Noosa started with an extraordinarily bad experience. The resort has 2 very different entrances about 10km apart. The address is shown as Little Hastings St. We arrived at about 6:30 pm at the advertised address, only to find a large boom gate half way up a steep hill blocking us from driving up.
It was dark but we looked for an intercom or a way to communicate with reception. Nothing was there. We tried to ring reception but couldn't get the number. We could only get the central booking office. We left in total stress after trying everything but couldn't work out what to do. If we hadn't paid in advance we would have gone elsewhere. After over 30 minutes of stress I thought maybe I could park at the boom gate and walk up. I went back and it was.open. I drove up but in the dark still had trouble finding it.
Lights, signs, reception phone numbers or an intercom would go a long way to solving this.
Also meet a guy who experienced the same thing and decided to book into the Sebel.
Others surely must experience this if they haven't stayed before or arrive in the dark at the advertised address.
The resort itself wad great. I couldn't fault it. Just a pity the above marred an otherwise good experience.
Right from check-in our stay at RACV was fantastic. We had a sanctuary view 3 bedroom apartment (upgraded rom 2 bedroom sanctuary apartment). The apartment was modern and had everything that was needed for cooking. The requested cot was already made up and highchair in the room, all for no additional cost.
The facilities were great, especially for kids. Swimming pools, small playground and dvd machine in reception.
We had a car and as it was off peak season (August) we had no issue with parking in Noosa Heads. Would be a nice walk into Noosa Heads but a small workout getting back but, the resort offers a shuttle so problem solved.
Would highly recommend for a family holiday.
The magnificent RACV Noosa Resort offers a choice of spacious and elegantly appointed studio 1 2 and 3 bedroom apartments …More
Netanya provides the ideal position for a relaxing holiday in Noosa. As well as being situated on the beachfront it is close to all shops, cafes, eateries especially Massimo's Icream!! This time we stayed in the Hastings Penthouse and we made full use of all amenities - the jacuzzi on the top balcony was so good to use after a long walk or swim. The rooms are beautifully fitted out - the bathroom so well appointed with complimentary cosmetics. Towels were plentiful with some for jacuzzi, swimming pool and of course the beach - I don't think we could ask for anything more.
Noosa is our favourite holiday destination in Australia - we enjoy the walks along National Park and the beach. The restaurants and cafes provide delicious food which cater for most appetites. And of course the weather was perfect.
Have to say we will continue to visit Noosa and Netanya Resort will always be our favourite place in which to live.
