Very comfortable for our 4 week stay. 2 Bed/2bath, huge balcony overlooking the lap pool . 4 pools, 2 heated. Best of all, it's so central - 2 mins walk to Coles, Dan Murphy, great restaurants and 5 mins walk to the Coolum Bowls Club. Good secure undercover parking - our car stayed there for practically the whole holiday. Everything... More

This is our second long term winter stay at Coolum at the Beach. We stayed four weeks last year and six this year. We have been lucky to have apartments which have double sized balconies (three bedroom but with two bedrooms locked off). The facilities are very clean. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful from initial contact for booking to... More

Our apartment was clean and comfortable if a little shabby. The resort has 3 heated pools and extensive outdoor areas to relax in. The staff are helpful and able to suggest Dining options in the adjacent town centre which is a two minute walk away

We originally stayed a week in June and liked it so much we extended for a second week. Michelle was lovely on check in and gave us a 1 bedroom apartment #115 on the top floor at the back of the resort. It is actually a two bed, two bath but the other rooms were locked. The self contained unit... More

Some of the units overlook at least one of the 4 pools in the complex. Its nice and quite as off the main road and close to Coles,... More

We love this hotel! The first time we stayed we had a 2 bedroom unit, which was great for a small family and overlooked one of the pools. The next 4 times we have gotten a 3 bedroom Villa....and WOW! We are impressed with the value! Three levels, huge kitchen, fully stocked, washer/dryer... and a rooftop patio with a jacuzzi!... More

Loved it, staff were so courteous and helpful. Facilities very clean, and all we could possibly need. Excellently convenient location! Pool area was maintained very well, everything worked as it should and staff were very accommodating. Across the road from Coles & Dan Murphy's, perfect for a mums weekend away!

Enjoyed staying at coolum at the beach. Rooms are pleasant, fairly basic in that there is just enough of everything ie 2 towels, 4 coffee sachets etc. Room was right at the back which wasn't fantastic (nearly a block back). Was great that there is 3 pools with one being for toddlers.

Thank you for your review of our resort. I'm glad you liked the choice of pools. There are actually four, so you will have another one to discover when you stay with us again! As fully self-contained apartments we provide a small volume of condiments as a starter pack. As you say, it is just enough to start you off.... More

Great 3rd floor apartment. Spotless, full kitchen, huge shower in main bedroom. Comfortable lounge and beds. Dining table inside and on balcony. Good air conditioning in all rooms. Fantastic pool areas and bbq by the pool facilities. Friendly staff. Quiet location away from traffic noise. If we return to Coolum this is where we would stay. Every time.
