We spent the last few days of our honeymoon here. The rooms were really spacious and comfortable. Our favourite thing was the pool, it was a perfectly heated for early September so we had lots of swims. The staff were all very nice and we were even able to check in early. Location is perfect with everything you need within... More

We've holidayed in Coolum for many years and this remains the best in terms of apartment size, pool quality, and location. For family of 5 sub-penthouse is optimum, spacious and clean. We stayed in first floor rooms, ocean facing but below the tree line so you couldn't actually see the ocean, but it didn't matter. Good shops nearby, perfect restaurant... More

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. Firstly, the office is located in the middle of the building. Best if you park in the underground carpark and walk through. Our unit was beautifully furnished and felt very new. On entrance the unit felt airy, light and fresh. It was spacious and we enjoyed having two balconies on either... More

Big multi-bedroom apartments with modern fit out and family friendly furniture and layout. My five bedroom family easily fit into a three bedroom apartment with my two boys sharing a two single bed room while my daughter had a queen bed to herself. Full size bathrooms and kitchen make the unit like a small house. Easy walk to shops, the... More

Jonathon, thank you for your review. Our location is second to none and the size of the apartments really does mean a family can all relax and have their own space. We do have a lot of families who come here each year as we (and Coolum) are family orientated. See you next time. Kind regards Shirley, Manager More

We recently spent the weekend with friends at Element on Coolum. I have to say Shirley at the front desk was nothing short of fabulous! Very obliging and friendly. The location is in the heart of Coolum a short stroll to cafes, shops, and the local supermarket. We had 3 separate apartments between us, and all were clean, neat and... More

Element has various sizes of self catering apartments on the main drag in coolum which is a short walk to the beach, many restaurants and cafés, and supermarkets. Accommodation is good quality with decent amenities. Only real issue is wifi. Not very effective and you don't get much download capacity for the period you buy the service - you can... More

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

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

Thank you Jacqui for your review. We appreciate all feedback and of course "praise" of our wonderful resort. We are working with owners to refurb their apartments, so my apologies if the furniture was not of the standard it should have been in yours - I will keep working on it.
