Great spot, right on the beach, next to a great eating spot and the walks and areas around the beach are just beautiful. The room was a good size, was very neat and clean, had everything we needed and had a kitchen area and a fully stocked mimi bar. Bathroom was clean and functional. We had a balcony that looked...

We stayed overnight at this Hotel. The location is fabulous literally a two minute walk to the beach and right next door to the Coogee Pavillion. We were in town for a wedding but did the beach walk from Coogee almost to Maroubra in the morning. Rebecca on reception was great. The room was ready for us even though we... More

The best part is being on the beach. You step outside turn left walk 100 yards and you are on the beach. Turn right and you will find all the restaurants, bars, shops even other hotels. The hotel provides indoor parking, the ground floor garage (called first floor in the US) is the best. One floor up hard to turn,... More

We stayed with 2 other couples in a studio suite and was very impressed with the size of the room. Right next door is the Coogee Pavillion and the beach with the remaining restaurants and Coogee Bay Hotel only a short distance away. We stayed only the one which was a Saturday and the staff were all friendly but professional.... More

Our family stayed at this hotel whilst we were in Sydney attending the football at Allianz stadium. This place has great friendly staff, the rooms are clean but the location is fantastic. Beach across the road great restaurants close walk and easy bus ride to Allianz Stadium would stay again.

I wanted to be as close to the beach & trail as possible, and this did not disappoint! Room was in superb condition, comfortable and had everything I needed (including good AC). I used the rooftop lounge every day - great place to work (writing - but no Internet) and panoramic views of the bay. I had great fresh-shucked oysters... More

if you are traveling to Sydney I would definitely recommend that you stay at the Coogee Sands. Coogee it's self is a great little place, nice beach, great atmosphere and lots of great places to eat. The apartments are in an ideal location, modern and clean. The reception team are friendly and give plenty of advice in relation to how... More

We booked two nights, Sunday, Monday for a mini break,. We arrived just after Midday but were able to book in. The room was on the 4th floor, no view, but it was quiet. Comfortable bed, small bathroom, small kitchen area with sink, microwave, fridge, and cutlery and crockery. Not sure if I would want a room facing the beach... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Coogee Sands Apartments. The room had a balcony with a wonderful view over Coogee Beach and the apartment itself was very comfortable, well appointed and clean, with a small kitchenette and secure underground parking being added bonuses.

A great place to stay while conferencing at UNSW. To be two minutes from the beach and make use of the outdoor roof top was divine. I just loved getting up early and taking a walk around the coast and then having a swim in the rockpool. Rooms were good and quiet. Topped off by good eateries nearby and very... More
