Checkin customer service was quick, friendly and without any issues. The location was awesome, great views, thanks. Beach location and close to surf club etc is great. Room was clean as was the pool and outside areas. Would definitely recommend this resort.

We had a three night stay here. The view from the room was fantastic and the hotels just a very short walk to the beach. A great location. The reception staff were friendly. But the $200 key security was a bit over the top. The hotel was opened in 1998 and I think needs to concentrate on maintenance and presentation... More

The Beach Retreat is easy to find, easy to park, easy to check in and check out, and easy to use as a base for visits to the beach, morning coffee/breafkfast, restaurants for dinner, or shops to stock up and cook in the unit. The pool is long enough to feel like you can swim a lap, rather than just... More

It is not however friendly to people who may have a handicap, wheelchair or difficulty with steps. Especially trying to get into the shower/bath in the room it is a very high step into the shower with no rails... More

Nice and close to the beach. Rooms not bad but have had better. There were lots of stairs to walk up and down. Seems a bit unusual for older guests. Even after taking the lift you still had to take stairs. Other than that it was ok.

Clean, well equiped, spacious two bedroom self-contained apartment with fabulous ocean views to Noosa National Park. Helpful, friendly, happy staff. Centrally located to enable you to immerse in Coolum's funky vibe and the fabulous food and beach culture.

Beware booking with them. They flat out refused to accept my confirmed booking and forced me into a cancellation. I gave up given how much stress it was causing me. They may appear reasonably priced but beware booking with them as you might end up in the situation I did.
