Reviewed 23 November 2009

Carpark construction undergoing underneath our balcony. Jack hammers, guerneys, bob cats operating on our arrival on Friday until 6pm, started again on Saturday 6:30am until late on Saturday afternoon and then started up again on Monday morning 7:08am. Management did not make us aware at the time of booking of the construction and we had to keep doors shut to keep out some of the noise. We were not able to enjoy what we had come for which was relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze on the balcony. Management took no responsibility for not advising us at the time of booking.

Reviewed 12 October 2007

Family of 4 stayed here in a two bedroom for 2 nights. Fully self catering including a washing machine and dryer. Quite dated but adequate with a very large kitchen incl full oven. The resort is at the back of the first block of shops and is 3 storeys high. Compared to some of the other Coolum locations the placement is not the best.

We would have enjoyed the stay more had we been forewarned about the stairs. There is no lift. Parking is one flight underground. We had an ocean view room on the second floor. Unless you have a desire to be a packmule, I suggest minimisng the luggage. There are some apartments on the ground level - which would limit the stairs to the carparking only - however these do not have any ocean view.

The pools are quite small - particularly the narrow plunge pool that is mentioned on the website. The website photos could be considered as showing the resort in its "best possible" light.

The managers are lovely, and the pricing reasonable - however with the alternatives available in the area, we will chose a different resort next time. One with a lift and good ocean views.

There are 2 restaurants on site where you receive 10% off, , as well as a number on the strip. The suf club has direct beach access, and serves a very good meal.
