We stayed in a 1 bedroom Ocean View Apartment for 7 nights. We flew up and caught a shuttle to and from the airport. We found the location to be perfect for us......we had no car so enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. We had been in the area before so didn't really need to go out and about sightseeing... More

We just had 5 nights at the beach retreat in Coolum and absolutely loved it. The unit we had was spacious and clean. Kitchen was well appointed and the bed comfy. We had our 9 month old daughter with us and the kids pool was perfect for her to swim in and lounge big enough for the port a cot.... More

I've just spent two lovely nights away in Coolum at The Beach Retreat. The unit was spacious with ducted air conditioning which was needed this weekend as it was quite warm. The bed was comfortable and facilities in good condition. There was no dishwasher which didn't worry me, but might be something to keep in mind if it's something you... More

Decent location and hotel/apartment rental. The good: free car park, located just across the street from the beach, friendly staff, large bathrooms. The average: beds, pool, cleanliness. The bad: nothing. I would recommend this for an overnight or long weekend, but not for a week or more.

The Beach Retreat is not really big enough to be classed as a retreat but it certainly was close to the beach. I've only rated it as average which I feel is a bit harsh but I couldn't honestly say that it was very good either. Choosing accommodation on line is always a bit of a lottery as a picture... More

We enjoyed our 2 nights stay. Great location as its closed to the shops and right in front of the beach :) Its about 20mins drive to & from the airport. The staff are really friendly & the place is clean.

The Beach Retreat calls itself a "resort motel". All the rooms have balconies overlooking the pools. The pools and landscaping around them make a great setting. The Beach Retreat is opposite a patrolled surf beach and there are restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk. From our balcony we had a great view of the ocean surf. From what... More

Considering the cost for this time of the year, the whole resort was ok. Great location straight across from the patrolled beach, boardwalk & walking paths, surf club and the shopping strip. The onsite heated pool left our eyes quite sore and irritable. Shame there wasn't a gym. The games room consisted only of 2-3 pinball type machines and an... More

Stopped off here for two days. when we went to check in the staff greeted us warmly. We were given a map of the complex as well as the local area. Its a 2 minute walk to the beach and shops. The complex has a pool, sauna, jacuzzi and BBQ area available to all guests. The studio apartment itself was... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at the Beach Retreat. We had a one bedroom apartment with beach views. We were very impressed with everything from the size of the room to the retreat's facilities. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect - being a stones throw away from the beach, surf club, shops, cafes and restaurants... More
