So many activity areas all inclusive. Across the road from beach. 5 minute walk to shops. Spacious unit areas and out door patios especially the corner units.

Hello, Sounds like you stayed in one of our 3 bedroom apartments in Catalina I - so spacious with full wrap around balconies allowing those sweeping ocean views. It's always great to see our guests making the best of not only the resort facilities but also the local attractions and beautiful cafes and restaurants just within a few minutes walk. We hope to be seeing you again soon. Regards

Hello Janelle, Please accept our sincere apologies for the leaking toilet, I understand you kindly notified our reception team on your departure and insisted you didn't want to be interrupted during your stay to have our maintenance team rectify the problem. We certainly never like to hear a guest not enjoying their stay especially where we can quickly resolve the problem during your stay. Apart from that, I trust you managed to enjoy the resorts many facilities and made the most of our wonderful location here in Maroochydore. Regards

The Venus was pleasing and fulfilled ya on our honeymoon. Only downside that I can think of tho was the clock battery had died so it stayed at 8:55 the whole week.
