“Modern, Clean & Central”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

We have been to Merimbula many times and this was our first time at Coast Apartments we have stayed at others and this is by far the best. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the family pool and it was wonderful. Both the apartment and pools are clean and well maintained, with a clean BBQ near pool & tennis court. The resort is within easy walking distance to the shops with the beach also a very convenient 400m walk. The golf course is a short 3 minutes drive and there is a great bike path to neighbouring Pambula Beach. There a some really great local restaurants or a Safeway if you prefer to self cater.
We have re-booked for next Easter!!!!

They really need to change their name as "resort" implies a lot. It is fine as a serviced apartment.

Each one is privately owned so in some few cases the owner has replaced some items of the package - typically the microwave fridge and lcd tv. Pretty common in these facilities. We scored the crt... and the lethal 5cm metal step into the bathrooms (great for kids! I put a towel down).

It is well postioned helpful staff however We loved it.

Firstly be aware that that not all apartments are fitted out the same way. Some have far less to offer, yet charged out at the same rate!

Our apartment was very basic indeed. No drawers or shelving in robes, so clothes were kept on floor/suitcase, very impractical for a young family. 5 coat hangers were supplied. 

The kitchen had absolute basics.

The pool has 5 deck chairs, and one umbrella, hardly enough to go around in peak season...

The building is full of defects sadly, the toilet roll holder fell off the wall, almost impossible to open sliding doors, an 8cm step in to bathrooms, (my daughter cut her foot on this). So much more I could say!

Something went wrong here!!

I addressed these issues with management; sorry can't help you, write a list, was the response.

Finally, the coast "apartments" lack those little touches, which makes for a comfortable stay, our apartment was really a box with lights. 

The week prior we had stayed in a cabin at a caravan park in Batesmans Bay, the facilities there were far better than this place, this was meant to be the luxury part!!!

DavidBeaumont, Manager at Coast Resort Merimbula, responded to this review, June 6, 2012
An extremely harsh review. As the Managing Director, I attempted to contact the guest several times after seeing the review and discussing with my support team. Unfortunately I never received a response by phone or email which was very disappointing as a review like this reflects on all apartments and townhouses that we manage and the review is not representative of our apartments and townhouses.
To clarify our position, all apartments within Coast Resort are privately owned and there are and will continue to be variances in furnishings albeit that we request a consistent and high quality to be maintained by the individual owners.
Management encourages each owner to add their own personal touches and to keep the quality of apartment furnishings to a high standard, which can prove difficult at times as individual styling tastes vary from person to person.
The apartment concerned with this review is no longer managed by Coast Resort due to the individual owner not adhering to both our and guest concerns.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the pool; still fairly new and in good condition, a good floorplan for a family. However, it's the little things that can count, - an old TV with no digital reception and a very basic austel subscription, & a fairly hard mattress. There is no free internet, you need to buy a "ticket" to get access, no big deal but an annoyance at this end of the accommodation market. Apart from these factors, pretty good accommodation.

We recently stayed at Coast with 3 little demanding boys. After reading a previous review l was a little uncertain about Coast Resort. Well what a load of rubbish that review was, IT WAS FANTASTIC! The staff were great, the facilities were top class and really well run. Thanks Dave and staff. I'd walk across the road for my morning beach swim. The swimming pools at Coast were much better then we'd expected. They were clean, modern and the kids loved it. Very much recommended. Just hope we can get a booking next time!

We loved the Coast Resort. We had an incredible deal on the penthouse apartment for 5 nights and we couldn't have been happier. With a 5 y.o. and 3 y.o.there was plenty of room for them to relax and play. There was a great playground across the road, a fantastic lap pool, terrific resort pool, and plenty of walks to go on. The town centre was a short stroll away, there were a range of cafes to select from, and the beach was a stone's throw away. Every room was flooded with light and the apartment included everything we could need for a family of four.

We read in other reviews that were minimal supplies provided (dishwashing, laundry powder) so we just bought our own. My only criticism would be that the floors need washing (kitchen and bathroom), other than that it was terrific.

Great location. Across the road from the beach and lake and short walk to the main street. Very quiet location.
Rooms were spacious but would not recommend a top floor if you had small children that require a pram (too many stairs).
Car parking great with extra storage space.
Pricing a little high (even in low season)
overall we would stay again as a couple or family
