The pictures were deceiving, it was no where near as nice as I was expecting and frankly it was disappointing. We were given a flyer to purchase $10 breakfast vouchers for the restaurant next door when we checked in and then when we attempted to purchase them the following day we were told they didn't do them any more. The...

Agree with others that sea views from the rooms at the rear are great however the decor in the room was tired, difficult to fill the kettle then find where to plug it in which was way away from where it was placed on arrival, the shower is difficult to access, the parking garage stunk of refuse and the unit...

We stayed at the beach retreat for three days. The location was perfect; right on the beach and close to shops and cafes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very tidy and clean, with great views of the beach. We would definitely stay again!

Can't put a finger on what is exactly wrong with this place but I won't stay here again. Overpriced considering the state of the rooms. They are clean enough but as someone said previously edging of the spa bath in room was rusty, some tiles chipped and didn't look 'fresh'. The height of the step into the spa/shower is dangerous...

My partner and I looked on Wotif and the pictures enticed us to stay at what looked like an amazing neat and tidy beach retreat with amazing ocean views. We ended up booking a one bedroom 'oceanview' apartment which was situated on the top floor at the back of the building. The ocean views were lived up to, however upon...

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment with ocean views. The room was situated away from the road at the back of the building which was good otherwise I think you would get quite a bit of road noise. Small kitchen but had everything you needed. Found it to be in a very reasonable condition and clean especially for the price....

This was our first trip to Coolum which I must say is a fantastic place. However don't stay at this "beach retreat". We looked at the photos and decided we were here for one night so let's give this place a try. To be blunt - the rooms are 2 star at best. They are dirty (when we got to...

I booked 2 nights here with my 15yo daughter, it is certainly one of the cheaper places to stay but next time I'll pay more. The location is excellent, but then all the hotels are in a great location along David Low Way. The receptionist at check in was incredibly rude and unfriendly. You get hit with a $200 security...
