We stayed 6 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment on the middle floor. We found it to be larger and more spacious than we expected, which was a great bonus. The kitchen was well set out for preparing home-cooked meals when we didn't feel like going out and we also made good use of the BBQ on the balcony. The... More

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the middle floor for three nights. The rooms were large, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Having breakfast on the balcony was a treat. The only negatives were a fiddly door lock and that the second bedroom was dark with insufficient natural light. The staff were courteous and helpful, doing their best to meet our... More

We have stayed in a Coolum many times and stayed at a few different resorts. "Coolum at the Beach" however, is our favourite accommodation. We ended up booking our stay via email/phone as it was cheaper, and as this was for our honeymoon we wished to advise the owners. We were given a 1 bedroom apartment in the quiet end... More

Like we said, Awesome place to stay. We had a three bedroom apartment locked down to one. Clean and tidy and everything in the apartment works which is almost unheard of today. Peaceful sleeps and pleasant days. Two steps and a heartbeat to the soft white sand and beautiful blue ocean. Loved the four pools especially the lap pool. Also... More

We stayed in a four bedroom villa. It was expensive but I guess you get what you pay for. We slept well, our villa was quiet and well equipped.

We stayed here recently and were very impressed. Our unit was at the lap pool end of the building, so nice and quiet despite being a busy time of year. Our only complaint was receptionist Michelle was quite rude at check-in, but was also rude to group checking-in in front of us so we didn't take it personally. Gym could... More
