The room was nice & clean & tidy. Bathroom & aircon etc needs a refurb. Getting a bit tired. Nice location. Nice view. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Plenty of parking. Few too many stairs even though the lift takes you to each floor there are still stairs that you have to use and you have to drag your bags up...

I stayed in a studio apartment. My impression was that the place is looking tired and my room could do with a thorough scrubbing, especially the tiles and screen around the bath. Entering the room was the overpowering smell of freshener which is often used to mask other smells and it was not at all pleasant. The bed is double,...

When we arrived we the hotel demanded a $200 deposit each, then in a party of 5 only 2 people got a room with a view. The rooms smelt, mine faintly of old vomit, all the furniture smelt, the glasses were smeary & also smelt. The bathroom has a small very deep spa bath that you have to hurdle to...

Stayed twice recently, cannot fault the service here at The Beach Retreat Coolum as always from check-in to departure is very friendly and professional. Many choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so no need to get the car out once you have booked in.

Great weekend holidaying with another couple. Booked a 2 bed, dual key apartment (Unit 8a/b) which was great - room for all 4 of us to hang out and eat in the main living/dining area. Additional TV/lounge chairs in the studio area, meant we could also go our separate ways if we wanted. Rooms were clean and kitchen had new...

Booked a room meant to have ocean view glimpses. Well there is a view if you go onto the deck and around a corner which is shared with the next room. The only view I have is of the next building. Coolum Beach is great though with lots of good little eateries.

We recently spent our second stay here and were not disappointed. I would recommend this resort for a really relaxing and enjoyable place to stay that is in a very handy position to everything. The staff are very friendly and the amenities are very clean. We used the sauna, spa and pool. Positioned opposite the beach, providing a beautiful view...

Located at top end of the town with great ocean views and easy access to the beach. Two restaurants next door and a short stroll to the centre of town where a variety of dining choices are available. Staff are friendly and courteous. Room needed a refresh - we expect a higher standard when we travel - and will try...

We stayed for two nights at the Beach Retreat recently. The location on the main road means there is a little traffic noise but it is very convenient to all local amenities. Beach, restaurants and shopping are all a short walk. The staff were welcoming and reception has free boogie boards and umbrellas for guest use on the beach. Our...
