“Great relaxing stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We stayed 3 nights from 18 September. Wished it could have been longer. Rooms were great. Good idea having two seperate spaces in the 2 bedroom apartments.

Great location near shops. Staff were good and let us check in early.

Will try and get back soon.

The price was very good and the place was quality and very clean. Spa in the bathroom was a lovely surprise. The ventilation system hums continuously and disturbs sleeping. Ear plugs helped some. On my own I will stay again, but my husband would not like the constant hum. Shame because it was in all other aspects a top place.

Very good location at Coolum. Close to all that helps to make your stay a relaxed one. Great room overlooking the beach. Quiet location. Easy access for vehicle and secure garage undercover. Very pleasant reception staff, no hassle on arrival. Excellet bed, had a great sleep every night.

My husband and I stayed here in early July. Location is fantastic. Right on the beach with plenty of eating places just down the road. Our 1 bedroom apartment was clean, comfortable bed and 2 balconies, one off the bedroom and one off the living area. The bedroom was separated from the lounge by sliding partition so could have it open or closed off if one of you wanted to go to bed early. We were on the 2nd floor with one minor drawback of our neighbour upstairs occasionally dragging things around on the tiled floor which was a bit noisy, more annoying really. The views were wonderful of the beach and ocean. If you like Thai food you must eat at Hot Chilli Bean Thai Cafe. The food is really nice and plenty of it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

First time on the Sunshine Coast, and stayed for two nights at the Beach Resort in a one bedroom apartment. We found it value for money, a huge bed with a view, a large bathroom with a washer and dryer and a comfortable lounge/sitting area. Having read other reviewers comments, its a bit surprising it wasnt rated better. Who doesnt travel without their own toileties??? so the lack of them in the bathroom is inconsequential. The room was clean, linen in good condition and if you look out past the balcony to the fabulous view - you wont notice the shell tiles.....if thats of a major concern to you when rating accommodation.

Hotel style accomodation for the overnite traveler should have the following detail shampoo, soap, coditioner tissues and towells you cant see through. The beach retreat had none of these not even a face washer. This is let down particularly as it was a hotel style room and we were working all day did not finish the job, did not come prepared and needed overnite accomodation.
The view was great, the bed comfortable but the room smelled like it had ben locked up with the airconditioner on for month, smelly and damp!
It seems on questioning the proprietors that this is the norm now on the sunshine coast yet next door had all we required plus more, but we stayed for a week?

Room Tip: stick to the front and upper floors wher air circulates and take the details if you want a totally s...
