Hi Darren. Wow! What a great review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your recent holiday with us. You have pretty much summed us up in a nutshell - modern, great location, great pools, so close to everything you need in Coolum. Thanks for sharing your great experience with the broader community and we hope to see you and your family back again soon.
Warm regards

We stayed two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The apartments are modern and clean. Within a short walk of the main strip and beach. Supermarket is just across the road. There is secure undercover parking. There are a four pools but we found most people used the main pool. The lap pool didnt have any lounges to sit on and was in the shade in the afternoon. Our apartment overlooked the main pool which gets noisy with voices echoing. We could block out the noise by shutting the door. I found the beds very hard and uncomfortable.

Hello Arantzy and thank you for taking the time to review our resort. I am glad to hear that the majority of your experience was positive here - including our location, cleanliness and facilities . We do not currently have any sun lounges by the lap pool but can easily rectify this. We get many requests from guests to overlook a pool, however the only downside to this is that it can get noisy from time to time. I am sorry to hear you found the beds hard and uncomfortable. It is very hard to find a bed that suits every individual!
Warm regards

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

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. I don't really know what to say other than you have summed us up perfectly and I am so pleased that you had such a great holiday! We look forward to giving you that same great experience next time you visit.

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.
Warm regards
