“Great!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Coolum At The Beach and we enjoyed it so much! We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment overlooking the lap pool. The room was large and had a full kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board and a king-sized bed. We only swam in the lap pool once as it isn't as warm as the enormous heated main pool which we swam in every day. I also visited the gym almost everyday which was quite good for a hotel gym - it has a rowing machine, treadmill, stationary bike and a large multi-station pin weight machine. The hotel location is great with the patrolled beach a short walk across the road and through a bush path. There are cafes, restaurants and bottleshops all within a short walk from the hotel, and a bit further walk takes you to the centre of Coolum with more restaurants and shops. We also used one of the free BBQs one night to cook dinner. It seemed a very family-friendly place and we noticed a lot of families with kids at the hotel, but the hotel is so large and spread out that they didn't disturb us. The kids pool is also separate and away from the main pool and the lap pool. Overall I would highly recommend Coolum At The Beach and would like to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room to get the most natural light.

Hello BrisVegas! It really does bring me great joy to read reviews such as yours and hear how much our guests have enjoyed their stay with us. Many guests comment on how surprised they are by the size and facilities offered in one bedroom apartments - they really are much more than a motel room. It sounds like you really made the most of a complete resort experience - using the gym, pools and barbeques and enjoyed our proximity to all Coolum has to offer. Thank you for sharing your positive experience with us here at Coolum at the Beach and the broader community. Hope to see you back again soon.
Warm regards
Michelle Richardson

Hello AussieB52. Your review has brought a real smile to my face! What more could a mere mortal ask for indeed! As a person who enjoys holidays, I know what it means to come away from a break and really feel you have connected with the resort and the town. It is a great feeling.

Firstly my family loves Coolum is just that bit more laid back than Moloolaba.

Coolum at the beach is a great family option at a great price. It's clean, functional and easily accessed, near the shops and only a few minutes stroll to the beach

We had 2 nights there over the labour day weekend and really enjoyed our stay - one we have 2 great spots there to stay after the demise of the old Hyatt thanks to Clive Palmer.

Stay her and spend your money eating locally, checking out the surf club and enjoying a fantastic beach. Recommended without question.

Hello Seanj. Great value and great location is a great combination! It's exactly what we strive to offer our guests and I am so pleased to hear this is what you feel we have provided. As you say, Coolum is a great town and still retains the laidback holiday town feel that many people seek. I am glad you encourage people to stay here and spend their money locally. Coolum has some fabulous restaurants, cafes, facilities and specialty shops and we fully encourage our guests to patronise these during their stay. We look forward to seeing you again.

We attended a wedding at Coolum and the apartments accomodated many of the wedding guests also. We found our three room apartment more than satisfied our party of six. Well set out lounge, kitchen and bedrooms. The secure parking and elevator made for easy access for my not so mobile mother-in-law. Supermarket and cafes close by are a bonus.Easy walk to the beach and the surf club all made for a wonderful stay.The Management and Staff were friendly and helpful. We would like to return one day.

Hello Lovex5. Thank you for your great review of our resort. Our location is definitely a bonus for guests. Many find they do not even need to use their car with Coles just across the road, a short walk to restaurants and cafes and a stroll to the bus stop to tak you to Maroochydore or Noosa! We do try and keep on top of maintenance issues and act on any that are reported immediately. We hope to see you here again soon.

Only a 1 min walk to the beach and 2 mins to all the cafés and restaurants. Stayed with my hubby, so asked for a quiet room. Hard request given it was school holidays, but the manager put us at the end of the complex near the lap pool. It was quiet, private and we chad no idea it was holiday time. Beautiful accommodation, well serviced, clean, modern, quiet, great range of pools and amenities, private, just exceptional. Highly recommend to anyone - families or couples.... Just ask for suitable accommodation when you book.

Hello LisaH. I am so glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay with us. The benefit of staying in a larger resort like Coolum at the Beach is that there is plenty of room to escape the noise of other people enjoying their holiday! Many of our one bedroom apartments are located at the lap pool end of the resort - which does tend to be quieter. I'm glad you enjoyed our close proximity to the beach and shops / restaurants and I will pass your comments about the cleanliness of your apartment onto our cleaners. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa for 6 nights. At first we booked 5, then decided on an extra night at the spare of the moment & the lovely receptionist didn't mind swapping & changing to help us.
The villa was amazing, beautifully furnished with very modern appliances & it was huge. Bigger then our house at home, plenty of room for us two adults & 4 children. The rooftop spa was awesome, also had a
bbq. That was super handy:)
I loved the back patio, it opened up to a tropical oasis with a path that contained 4 pools pools all along the resort & fabulous gardens & flowing rock pools, simply stunning!!
Will definitely be returning.... such a lovely relaxing stay :)
