“Modern, spacious, great views.”
Reviewed September 12, 2009

My first time to Bowen so i can't compare with anywhere else there. I liked this place as it was just out of town, very quiet and situated on a nice bay. The 1 bedroom apartment was huge with big bedroom and lounge room as well as a huge functioning kitchen. The restaurant food was great. With cheaper options just next door at the caravan park.
It was quite pricey but i think if you are after a nice getaway it is well worth it.

First let me start by saying that Bowen and surrounds, are a hidden gem in between Townsville and Airlie Beach. The whole coast has some spectacular and natural bays and coves that are just there for exploration. It is very spread out and you will definitely need a car to get anywhere.

I chose to stay at the Coral Cove at the recommendation of one of our family. There were three families staying, ages ranging from 7 months old to 75 years. The apartments are absolutely flawless. Very much a 4 1/2 star setup. Amazing views over the sea and beautiful sunsets. Coral Cove faces north west, so were very sheltered from the winter south winds.

These are serviced apartments only. Do not get the impression that you will get help from the management. They are there to give you your key, take your money and send you away. We made the mistake (travelling with 2 toddlers in tow) of missing out on going to the supermarket and had to ask for a garbage bag. This was not the right thing to do and we were reminded of our roles as 'renters' and what management was there for. Each of our three families had a similar experience and thus avoided the office at any cost.

The apartments were very well setup internally with Foxtel/Austar stereos etc. There were two bathrooms a laundry and all the modern conveniences you would need. Evenings were spent sipping a beer and watching the sunset.

The restaurant advertised on their website is no longer there, but the new guys do a good Chinese/Malaysian menu. Right next door is the Whitsunday Sands Resort, very old school, but with a good little restaurant for breakfast.

Don't wast too much time on the beach in front of the Apartments. Walk an extra 50 metres to Horseshoe Bay. It's spectacular. Also take a drive up to Flagstaff Hill one afternoon - views for miles.

On a recent trip from Mackay to Townsville we came across the town of Bowen. Even though there is not alot there the beaches are wonderful. We decided to stay at the Coral Cove Apartments for two nights on our return trip back to Mackay as they looked very nice.

We were not dissappointed the apartments were clean, well furnished and had everything you would require. We enjoyed the area so much that we decided to extend the stay by another night.

All in all the stay was restful and we enjoyed every minute of it and it made a lovely stop before the return flight back to NZ.

You must try the Coral Cove International Restaurant underneath the apartments and as per an earlier review ask for the Peking Duck. Really excellant value and a wonderful meal.
