This hotel was clean, roomy and very comfortable. It's just across the road from Coolum Beach which is a wonderful place to walk of a morning or evening. Secure parking is provided for guests underneath the hotel. There is a great little cafe and bar next door which is perfect for dinners and drinks. And it's just up the road...

This was a nice enough place to stay for a couple of days, but nothing to particularly recommend it. The location was really good but the general area of Coolum Beach was disappointing, with many places closed or closing early due to it being out of season.

We always ask for Unit 48 as it is modern, well appointed and it has the best ocean views - we love eating meals on the balcony. This unit has impressive touches like a wall clock, a huge HD TV/DVD with Foxtel, unbreakable acrylic wine glasses and good quality cookware. Sure if you look hard enough, you may see a...

We have stayed in a variety of resorts in Coolum over the years, but we came back to the Beach Retreat for its position and value. We booked an oceanfront one bedroom apartment (No 49) and it had a full view of the ocean - not just a sneak peak. The pool was heated so that a late winter swim...

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...

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...

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...

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...
