It seems harsh to only award the Beach Retreat 3 stars, because there were a lot of positives which did make for a good stay: - The location is great, right across from the beach and surf club and close to everything in Coolum. - We had fabulous views from the ocean-view apartment. - The reception staff were very friendly...

After only booking the basic studio room for our 1 night stay I wasn't expecting much but were very happy with the room and the unexpected view of the ocean. Though the bed was on the hard side the room was clean and spacious. The location couldn't be better with a lovely boardwalk seating area over the road and great... More

Great deals for 1 night to 7 plus! Right across the road from the beach and surrounded by lovely eateries this is a good family spot. Undercover parking secured overnight and lift access which is essential for the three level accommodation.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the third floor and couldn't have been happier. Great beach views, very quiet, and everything you could possibly need. There is secure parking. The one bedroom apartment had a full kitchen, washing machine, spa, aircon, a fantastic balcony with beach views. These apartments are close to restaurants, shops, beach and a small cafe/restaurant... More

Heartily recommend this apartment complex and particularly the apartments to the rear which are very quiet. Office staff are very helpful with good connections to affordable rental company in Maroochydore. Kitchen is most adequate to cook own meals with food supplied from local Supermarket only 10 mins walk away. The older one gets the more one appreciate the quiet of... More
