I don't like writing negative reviews especially when we have stayed at places before and had a pleasant time, but on this occasion our stay was less then comfortable, overall the apartment was clean, but the mattress on the bed was very uncomfortable you could really feel the springs, a mattress cover would have provided some relief but none was...

We stayed at The Retreat for 6 day's. Best break we've had for some time. Staff extremely helpful. Unit very clean. Right on the beach (across the road). Still a little cool for this time of the year but never the less great on the beach. Locals very friendly. Lovely dinner at Coolum Surf Club on Tuesday night. Couldn't fault... More

Although the location is really great, the price competitive and the staff OK, we wouldn't stay here again compared with other venues we found nearby. It's not that there was anything bad about the place, but it felt and looked very tired. In fact we both said we thought we had walked into a motel from the 70's. The staff... More

My wife and I stayed at these apartments for 2 nights whilst we were touring Austrailia during mid August. Staff were friendly and the apartment was very clean. It was well equipped and even had a washer and dryer. The kitchen was modern and well fitted out. We were in 8A which was our choice as we wanted to park... More

We had a wonderful 3 night getaway in Coolum,. Had a great roof top unit with fantastic views from an extra large private balcony and were lucky enough to watch the whales go by whilst having a snack ad drink. (Unit 55A). The resort is walking distance to anything you need for a relaxing stay. Only drawback was that the... More

We stayed at The Beach Retreat Coolum for 7 days in a self contained apartment. Overall the apartment was great with a fantastic view of the ocean with aĺl you would need for your stay. The only negative I can mentioned is that there was a safety issue with some power points with loose switches I will let management know.... More

The accom is a great location, but the property is getting very tired. We booked a seaview room with spa. We got a sliver of a sea view from a tiny balcony. The spa bath was broken as the bath could not be filled. Wifi was broken, carpets were musty and the whole place is desperately in need of refurbishment.... More

We have stayed at The Beach Retreat regularly over many years. You can't beat the location and most units have a lovely view of the beach. I have always found the staff to be helpful and friendly. At this stage, I agree with what others are saying in regard to an upgrade however we tend to book the same ocean... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. Location is its best aspect - we could see and hear the ocean from our room and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. In our case the bathroom was dated and we were a little disappointed with advertised free wifi being very minimal - of course... More

Fantastic value, location, service and accommodation. Walking distance to amazing restaurants . Clean apartments with views full Foxtel, washer, dryer regulated showers and even ceiling fans for days that you don't need AC. Solar heated pool and awesome spa. Could not fault this place. Highly recommended.
