Coolum Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Coolum Beach
Reviewed 6 January 2016

My husband and I have stayed in room 20 a number of times and we keep coming back. The latest was early November, 2015. We have noticed the room now has a new kitchen in place (Very nice and modern) and a new lounge suite (sofa lounge included).
It is only a short walk from the apartment to the beach (and you can see the beach from the balcony and bedroom) and the local shops.
Castros restaurant is directly underneath the apartment but you can barely hear the noise from it.
The room is always clean and tidy. We are always greeted by Brett and Sandy who are both wonderful and lovely and are always eager to make sure our stay is comfortable.
I have read from other reviewers about too many stairs. A handy tip for if you are staying in room 20 or 21, make sure you stay parked outside when checking in so you only have one small flight of stairs to go up with luggage. It makes life a lot easier.

Room Tip: Room 20 has a Sofa Bed which can provide more sleeping arrangements for extra guests.

Nice clean spacious one bedroom apartment which had a view of the ocean from the balcony and walking distance to shops. My only negative is I had to carry all my luggage up six flights of stairs from the underground car park as there were no lifts.

Good central location just off Main Street, easy walking distance to all Coolum has to offer, beautiful beach across the road and fantastic surf club with great meal. Accomodation comfortable and spacious but lots of stairs with no lift access if you have mobility problems, nice pool area with shade in afternoons which was enjoyable, overall a nice stay which I would recommend to all travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor room if you don't want to climb stairs.

We had a large 2 bedroom town house. All rooms are advertised with sea views, which it did have to the left and the right. In the middle was a building which stopped us seeing the sea right out in front of us. 3 minutes walk to the surf club and about 10 minutes to the Bowling Club which offers lovely meals.

We booked our short stay through a telemarketer and did not deal with the actual resort itself until I received a phone call the day before we were to arrive to say our accomodation had been upgraded to an ocean view apartment. We were delighted of course but very disappointed when we arrived to find the accomodation did not have lift access and at Unit 23 we were the highest unit in the complex. The office had just closed so we struggled up and down 60 stairs from the basement carpark to our unit with our luggage. In addition my husband was recovering from a severe illness and found the number of stairs extremely exhausting. We could have just as easily been a couple with a disability or a very elderly couple so the fact this was not made known to us by the telemarketing company was very disapppointing. Having said that our unit was very spacious, modern, clean and well priced. It is very well positioned to the beach and flagged swimming area as well as the Surf Club, shops and eateries literally less than a few minutes walk away. The complex itself has a games room, barbecue area, pool and spa. Unfortunately on the Saturday night we ran out of hot water which was a bit of a concern given there was only 2 of us in a 2brm apartment. Would we come again? Probably not....being so close to the beach a sea view is warranted but not at the expense of so many stairs.
