“A lot of stairs to climb”
Reviewed October 12, 2007

Family of 4 stayed here in a two bedroom for 2 nights. Fully self catering including a washing machine and dryer. Quite dated but adequate with a very large kitchen incl full oven. The resort is at the back of the first block of shops and is 3 storeys high. Compared to some of the other Coolum locations the placement is not the best.

We would have enjoyed the stay more had we been forewarned about the stairs. There is no lift. Parking is one flight underground. We had an ocean view room on the second floor. Unless you have a desire to be a packmule, I suggest minimisng the luggage. There are some apartments on the ground level - which would limit the stairs to the carparking only - however these do not have any ocean view.

The pools are quite small - particularly the narrow plunge pool that is mentioned on the website. The website photos could be considered as showing the resort in its "best possible" light.

The managers are lovely, and the pricing reasonable - however with the alternatives available in the area, we will chose a different resort next time. One with a lift and good ocean views.

There are 2 restaurants on site where you receive 10% off, , as well as a number on the strip. The suf club has direct beach access, and serves a very good meal.
