We spent 6 nights at Elements early August. Agree with "Great Location in Coolum!!" We could not fault this complex. Following the previous two stops on our holiday, it was a pleasure to find a unit that was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Our balcony faced the North overlooking the pool and it was a great place to sit and... More

Have recently returned from a 3 night stay at Element on Coolum. The location is brilliant with so many shops and cafe's close by. Coles is also in walking distance to be able to stock up the kitchen. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I've slept in !! The resort grounds were very well kept and the... More

The location is great - right in the heart of coolum. Great parking available also below the apartments and just a lift ride up to the apartment. We were on the ground floor which was great. A little disappointed that the table in our apartment was broken. The table and chairs outside were also very dated and sad looking. The... More

Very disappointed to discover the apartment we booked by the pool, that we once part owned & I fully decorated in light bright contemporary coastal style had been double booked. We were moved to an apartment at the back of the complex, not poolside & a very depressing brown decor. Shame when this weekend getaway was to celebrate a very... More

Suzie, thank you for writing in with your review. I did ring the owner of the apartment with who had offered his apartment to you, if we could move your stay into another apartment in the centre of the complex due to the "matrix" (jigsaw) of bookings. We had not double booked and did seek permission from your friend/owner, as... More

The location is truly great. Restaurants, shops and the beach are a comfortable walk from your apartment. The staff seem pleasant and accommodating. However, Element's security measures boarder on annoying. Constant checkpoints require your room key to access just about every part of the complex. Also, the pay TV and television are rather hard to navigate. Aside from that, as... More

Thank you for your review Tyson. We do have the security fobs for guests use within the complex - at the front gate after hours, your secure foyer areas and the secure carpark. These are in place for your peace of mind. It does mean that you have to take your apartment key with you when you go out to... More

Spacious modern apartment in convenient location. At first difficult to access with stroller, steps and key locks with very strict security. Added costs for any extras such as towels for pool, high chair and replacements for basic amenities. More amenities - soap powder, detergent, toilet paper, coffee, tea, salt and pepper would be very welcome, especially for short stays where... More

Thank you Lynne for your review. Element on Coolum Beach offers self-contained, self-catering apartments for our guests. We keep our rates very competitive with the other resorts, which means that every apartment has "starter" consumables for our guests use and the extras are charged at a minimal rate. Our central location means that everything you need for your stay is... More

We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment on the first floor over looking the pool and facing the ocean for a two night stay. We didn't have access to the 3rd bedroom but that wasn't an issue. The apartment was huge with a large fully equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge room with 3 balconies. The master bedroom with... More

We booked in over Easter for 5 nights. 3bed 3 bathroom (2 ensuites). Very spacious apartment. Very modern and clean. Our apartment was on the ground and had a huge balcony over looking the pool side (although couldn't see the pool due to the privacy hedge). We arrive early and was informed that the apartment would be ready earlier. There... More

Thank you for your review. We think it is "fab" here also. The barbecues do get used quite a bit from time to time, but so many of our guests take advantage of the great restaurants within our retail precinct. We thought 10 sun lounges would be enough with so many guests taking advantage of our beautiful beach, but I... More

Large, spacious air-conditioned rooms with a fabulous outdoor heated pool. Perfect for couples or families. On-site staff very welcoming and helpful. Fantastic restaurants in the complex including award winning "Harvest". Walk across the road to one of Australia's most beautiful beaches. Day spa located on ground level perfect for massages. We will definitely come again.
