We spent a week at the Hyatt in Coolum Beach and absolutely loved it. My husband was at a conference and me and my 12 year olf daughter had a blast. We had a room with 2 double beds and it was enormous for a standard hotel room. The bathroom was very large with a tub and separate shower. We... More

So much to do at this hotel, will be difficult to cover it all. We have young baby and as she went to play in Camp Hyatt for the morning, Dad played 18 and I went to the sun spa. We booked a spa break and it was worth it. It's a bit of trek to gt to the beach... More

The online brochure was great – beautiful room, spectacular view, 9 swimming pools, a private beach – a resort where one could kick back and relax, unwind. When we checked in we were provided a map of the property – all 350 acres of it – and we were taken by shuttle to our room – the only time –... More

I stayed here on business last year. We were lucky enough to have a new 2 bedroom villa on the golf course. The room was fantastic, huge, modern and bright. They come and collect you in a little buggy to drive you around the property as it is so large, you could also hire a mountain bike. Has a golf... More

We had two nights at the Hyatt Coolum and would recommend the property. Rarely does one property accommodate so many different types of holiday maker. The property is ideal for couples and families and the serious golfer. We normally stay at the Sheraton in Noosa when visiting the Sunshine Coast but due to the Jazz Festival on the weekend we...

Recently returned from staying at the Hyatt. Great location and wonderful for families. Although some of the previous reviewers found that the hotel had aged, I stayed in an Ambassador Villa and found it to be well kept and modern. Good facilities including free daily Continental breakfast and evening drinks in exclusive Ambassador Lounge, plus entry to Sun Spa, if... More

Like other reviewers I enjoyed the Hyatt Coolum but the rooms let the place down. The architecture and general amenity of the property holds up well some 18 years after it opened but the place is crying out for an extreme makeover. Our main bathroom was adorned with a rusty shower screen and tiles that were chipped and cracked. While... More
