Coolum Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Coolum Beach
Reviewed 22 November 2016

We were booked into Unit 17 which is a large one bedroom unit.The unit was clean with air-conditioning and all the usual mod-con's. We were not inconvenienced by any noise issues. The managers were in contact before our arrival and were available when we needed assistance with the smoke alarm after we checked in.

The entrance to the car park is via Frank Street. It is then a journey of 45 step to the Unit carting the luggage. Not recommended if you are mobility restricted. This resort is for the younger family to enjoy. It is a short walk of less than 200 meters to the patrolled beach. If you need to purchase supplies for the larder, it is a 20 minute walk to the Coles supermarket. Better to take the car if you have a large shopping list. There is a large selection of shops and eating establishments nearby.

We had room 18 for eight nights, double room with ocean views, top floor. For two adults and one child it was very spacious, especially the living and kitchen area. Check in was easy, the office was closed so we followed the instructions in the email to collect the keys and park underneath (we had two car parks!) and finished our check in with the super friendly staff when the office was open.

Great location, only a few minutes from the beach and main shopping strip, restaurants downstairs give 10% discount when you show your room key. We were lucky and saw whales frolicking from the balcony on several occasions!

The beds were comfy, bit of traffic noise from the main road, especially when the garbage trucks come early in the morning. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of hot water for a couple of showers each per day. The washing machine was easy to use and there's a clothes horse (we didn't need the dryer) to hang stuff on which was handy bathers on the balcony.

We all loved the pool, spa and sauna and spent time there every day.

There was enough supplies for one night (tea/coffee, shampoo, dish washing liquid, toilet paper etc) so longer stays require a trip to the supermarket. Changing towels and linen will be done once per seven day booking I think, so ours was done after three nights.

We loved our stay and hope to come back some time soon!

We had a weekend stay at Coolum Beach Resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our one bedroom unit was huge. It had fans and air conditioning but we didn't need it as there was bifold doors which allowed a beautiful breeze through.

The resort has two very nice looking pools and a spa. There's also a great BBQ area undercover with a large outdoor dining area.

There are many restaurants, cafes, thesurf club and beach literally one or two minutes walk from the resort. It's in an excellent location. We would definitely stay again.
