Just came home from a lovely relaxing 3 day stay at The Beach Retreat Coolum. Staff are really friendly and helpful. The 2 bedroom Apartment with ocean view was nice. It is in a fantastic location so close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Nice Pool area with Spa and BBQ which we used for a breakfast and dinner.

With Coolum Beach across the road, Surf Club 100M up the road and restaurants close this is a good location in Coolum. The beach is lovely and uncrowded. Coolum itself is quiet and sleepy and family friendly. The Beach Retreat offers modern, comfortable accommodation. We had a one-bedroom apartment with balcony with sea views. Bed extremely comfortable. Spa in bathroom... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with ocean views. I grew up in Coolum Beach and chose the Beach Retreat for our Christmas stay this year because its great value for money, it's easy to walk to everything and you feel like you are on holidays every day. Will choose Beach Retreat again next year....

We stayed in a one bedroom ocean view apartment in October. The apartment contained everything you need, including a washing machine & dryer and of course a good sized balcony overlooking the pool & beach. The apartment was spotless and the shower had amazing pressure to get rid of the sand after a day at the beach. Everything was within... More

We stayed here this past weekend and found the resort itself to be very neat and tidy and the pools & spa were definatley an asset as it was a hot weekend and a bit windy for the beach. Only issue we had was that on our very first night we returned from dinner to find that there were no... More
