I took my wife for our wedding anniversary as this was where we had our wedding night 11years ago. This time we stayed in a studio apartment with ocean views with breakfast included. We had a great time enjoying the pool and spa. The ocean views was beautiful from our balcony. The staff was very helpful in making out stay... More

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

My adult daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights recently as a chosen retreat from the bustle of our usual lives in Adelaide. We chose a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment at The Beach Retreat and it was very spacious, with 3 balconies in total, the main one with table & chairs outside overlooking the beautiful surf beach.

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
