We arrived very late at night but had no trouble finding our room with the great instructions that were left for us. What a surprise it was to find out we had been upgraded - awesome. The apartment had everything one could need. Many hours were spent in either of the two spas in the evening. Meals cooked on the... More

8 blissful nights. Wonderful ,roomy, one bedroom apartment. Everything was spotless and the outside areas were a joy. Beautiful gardens, warm pool and hot spa. The managers were wonderful, so helpful. They even held over a deposit for us until circumstances allowed us to travel! Some traffic noise but the double glazed doors keep out the noise at the busy... More

The rooms are gorgeous. We had a lovely ocean view. The managers were so friendly and accommodating. The pool was beautiful and the price was well within our budget. I look forward to staying there again very soon.

Had 4 nights at Coolum Beach Resort and could not fault it. Rooms were of 5 star quality, with everything you need at the resort, except the beach, which is about 1.5 mins away!! I travel Australia often for work, and look forward to my next conference at Coolum. I will actually book my whole work team into the Coolum... More

My husband & I have been coming to Coolum Beach Resort every year for the past 12 years. It has become our home away from home, escaping the cold Winter Months in Victoria for approximately 8 weeks a year. We have stayed in numerous apartments over this time & have found them all to be comfortable, spotless, well maintained &... More

Booked for 4 nights - would have checked out upon entry but the trip was for the kids to go to the beach and other attractions so it was not worth our while to go early due to costs of cancelling. The fridge did not work and had to be replaced. The room was so dirty we spent 4 hours... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at Coolum Beach Resort. It’s certainly disappointing to note your unsatisfactory experience, and we regret not being able to rescue the situation by offering you i.e. another apartment. Coolum Beach Resort is situated only 50 metres to the beach so we are glad that we could help with the close proximity... More

Every year, I spend at least a few days here - and I keep coming back over and over. The location is brilliant, and it's a "home away from home". My favorite part of the whole trip is waking up and looking out over the ocean each day. The staff here are friendly and courteous - although we only see... More

My parents booked this for a holiday with me in a 2 bedroom suite. What a bad decision, the room was dark and smelt and hadn't been aired for months. We tried to change our booking once we saw the room. Even though we hadn't even used the toilet or touched the bed they charged us $245 for the cancellation... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our Resort. We were disappointed that you did not wish to stay with us. As the first apartment which was a 2 Bedroom Townhouse was not acceptable due to the kitchen/living area being upstairs we immediately transferred you to another apartment where you appeared to be happy.
