Stayed 3 nights here, rooms are fairly dated, retaurants were good although the bar/restaurant at reception was closed thus no access to a beer whist playing pool on crappy tables. Golf course was great.

We stayed at the Hyatt on a 2 night Golf and massage type package. Where both the golf course is good and the new day spa also of a great, the room we stayed in was was very dated and tired.

Set in on a lovely golf course near the sea close to the local airport and Noosa. However, the rooms are old and look like they have not been revamped since they were built. It looks like the place has been expanded but the car park (which is a good distance away) and eating facilities have not kept pace. If... More

We were booked to stay at the Hyatt as we were attending a wedding and they had special rates for the wedding guests, although I did not think that the special rate was that special! Only $10 off. This is a huge resort and very well laid out. The rooms are spacious, clean, tidy and well stocked. The bathroom was... More

The reason I selected Hyatt Coolum for a weekend escape was for some 5 star service...and I was impressed. From the moment the car pulled up the staff were attentive, accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Over the short overnight stay, no request was denied..ie early check-in, late checkout, trips off the main shuttle path, canoes, bikes etc etc.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of the school holidays. This hotel has everything you need plus more. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly concierge team who took care of our luggage whilst we checked in. Check in was quick and very professional. We were upgraded to an Ambassador Suite (just ask... More

This was by far one of the best resorts I have ever stayed at! We are Hyatt Members and booked a Woodland Villa room and received a free upgrade to the beautiful President Villa overlooking the golf course. Everything about the hotel was fantastic - activities, food, room, views, facilities etc!! Can't complain about one thing! We live in Brisbane... More

This is a good golf resort - the PGA championship golf course is fantastic. The golf pro shop is pretty well stocked. Golf balls are expensive and you may lose a lot of balls (average 8.balls are lost if you are playing 18 holes for the first time there). Staff were friendly and helpful. I was told that my room...

We spent a week at this hotel and chose it mainly for the sports facilities and the availability of the kids club. We booked a Woodland villa with 2 bedrooms and a package that included cont. breakfast and evening meal at one of their "family" restaurants, as well as bikes, golf game and buggy for 2 and other activity vouchers...
