I took my girls on a weekend away, we stayed in apartment 18, ocean views. We had the bestest time ever, it was close to everything, the staff was great and efficient checking us in, the apartment was very comfortable. A few problems would be that the TV in the front apartment didnt have foxtel, people walking past could see... 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

We had a fantastic week long stay at the Beach Retreat. Ideal location, within walking distance to the local shops and cafes. But also across the road from stunning beach and of course the fantastic Coolum Surf Club. Great for family dinners out. The staff are friend and very accommodating. The Sunrise Café, bar, restaurant just next door, was the... More

Booked a Single room apartment, hoping for a relaxing weekend, the photos online looked OK, but unfortunately our room.... Well, we were able to relax but not in the room which was straight out of the late 70s early eighties, with yellow paint scheme, a shower in the laundry; or was that a laundry in the bathroom? No comfort at... More

This was our first time to the sunshine Coast and loved it. Coolum is great, and the retreat was so close to everything. Our family loved the pool, especially the kids wading pool. The room was great, and the view was fantastic! Straight across from the beach. We will definitely be back.

I booked 3 different types of accommodation for 3 different family groups. Each group had different requirements. The staff at Beach Retreat delivered on all our different needs. Every apartment was fantastic. The location is central to everything. We parked the car and didn't need to use it for the time we were there. Apartments were clean and roomy with... More

We had two nights at The Beach Retreat in a studio room. The resort is in an excellent position across from the beach and the life saving club and within a very short walk to restaurants and shops. There are two pools, one for adults and older kids and one good size wading pool for toddlers. Our room was motel... More

My family spent the weekend at the Beach Retreat Coolum as my brother was getting married. The hotel was great, the staff were thoughtful and friendly. It was so close to the surf lifesavers club, cafes and takeaways that walked down for dinner. Separate bathrooms and laundry facilities were excellent. The pool was the perfect temperature and well maintained. They... More

Perfect Location! Everything you need for a relaxing getaway! Affordable too! Third stay for us and we'll be back. Can't wait! :) It's not a hotel so don't expect room service. It's perfect for self catering if you don't want to eat out or have a BBQ.
