    Lovely room 49 on 3rd floor has a view straight across to a surfing beach/sea. Could lie in bed and hear/ see the sea; unfortunately no whales but lots of surfers. Location great for very nice surf club and shops. Good safe parking. Pool heated but only moderate size. Sauna and spa pools nice. Aromas from next door café and... More

    Booked our 2 nights away and the first room was so overwhelming with the smell of bleach we ended up having to pay an extra $120 to get a room that didn't smell of bleach. They said it was to get rid of the mould which I guess is ok however the extra price room had lots of mould around... More

    Absolutely fabulous place to stay. Central location close to My Place resturant, Surf Club and Sunrise Resturand next door and opposite the magnificent beach at Coolum. Very clean with everything supplied and very helpful staff.

    Wonderful place and the location directly across from the beach can't be beaten. The rooms all look over the central pool. The breakfast included in our room price at the cafe next door was wonderful too. We loved our stay and will be back. Thanks Beach Retreat.

    This new family retreat, is right across the beach and with a cool playground. The retreat itself has a small wading pool with a little beach entrance, covered with sail shade. The location is one of the best attractions, with a short stroll to the main shops of Coolum + Coles and Maccas + other extra designer shops selling unusual... More

    Stayed here last weekend for 3 nights and had been here several years ago. It's still a nice good value place. It's not the Ritz but a nice clean comfortable apartment. Just stroll across the road to the beach. Easy stroll down to local shops where you can get FREE Sunshine Coast wifi. Front desk staff were pleasant and welcoming.... More

    We stayed as 2 families for the Easter Weekend and it was absolutely fabulous. It was our second visit and expected the stay, but this was even better! We managed to get a newer apartment that had a dishwasher and oven. Something a family needs.

    We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 kids. We had a back unit which still had ocean glimpses and it was HUGE! The kids had their own room with a spa, table, bed and large TV. We were able to relax in our separate area. The location is fantastic, opposite a beach with lifesavers and within walking distance of... More

    We only stayed one night in Coolum. Kinda wish we stayed longer as we don't get to stay in ocean view apartments that often. I think all apartments get ocean view because of the way the building is set up. Curved into a U shape. The balcony was really spacious, big enough for 4 chairs and a table. The hotel... More

    Stayed at the Beach Retreat Coolum for 5 nights and it was great. Local shops and restaurants are only a few mins walk as is the main beach. Walk up or drive 1 minute to the little bays just south of the main beach which are even more beautiful (and quieter!). Staff were friendly. Unit was nice, clean, good size... More
