Our 2 bedroom apartment was really a 3 bedroom with one of the rooms locked up. Very sizeable room, with plenty of space. Well located close to shops and beach.

Great facilities including a number of pools, spas and full size tennis court.

We stayed in Winter (July) and would have liked the spa to be a bit hotter (was not really warm enough to sit in for long on a cool day)

Could have done with a few more cooking implements in the room, (We had to cook our pre made pizza on plates in the oven because there were no).oven trays provided. But overall a great place to stay, and would love to come back in Summer!

Room Tip: Would probably get a ground floor room with good access to pool and spa

If you are planning a seaside holiday, perhaps with children, you need to be aware that this hotel, whilst perfectly satisfactory, is nowhere near what I call the seaside. It is about ten minutes walk from the beach, behind two rows of houses, shops and other apartments. You cannot see the beach or the sea, or even hear it from this site. So the name is quite misleading.
Having said that, my room was clean and tidy, with a small kitchenette inside so you could cook a light meal. Nice bathroom, everything else is OK. At $229 room only it was OK for my business stay over, but I would not choose it for a holiday if that is what you have in mind.

Room Tip: I would stay away from the pool area in school holidays as that would certainly be noisy.

Called ahead to see if we could check in early and thankfully the lovely guy at the front counter was great and organised early check in no problem.
Staying in apartment 38 beautifully appointed with all the amenities needed.
Washer, dryer and dishwasher makes our break a whole lot easier. Would definitely recommend to family and friends we will b back:)

Very pleasant and relaxing break at these Coolum apartments over the New Year holiday period 2013/14. 2 bedroom apartment was clean and had very good amenities and quality fittings. Plenty of room with good size balcony overlooking the lap pool, complete with recliner and patio table and four chairs.
Car park was a little tight for a 4X4 but was manageable. Trollies available in the car park to assist with getting the bags to our room - nice little touch.
Had no concerns with privacy - the two bedrooms and the bathroom have doors on them - felt like we had the whole resort to our selves at times despite being peak season. The windows in the master bedroom are small - my only gripe really and a little one at that.
Good size walk in showers and a spa bath. Beds were comfortable - not like a Shangri La hotel I admit but were fine.
A whole series of BBQs lined up under cover around the pool with fridge and plenty of tables and chairs. Nice to cook dinner with the kids taking a dip.
Full size tennis court with raquets and balls supplied - best to book a time to avoid dissapointment.
Gym might be a bit small for a fitness fanatic but when on holiday why not go for a wlk along the beach?
Had a look at the Business Lounge - computer, printer and meeting table, kitchenette provided and a few bookshelves full of books to borrow. Not sure who would use this but it looked functional.
Location is excellent - you can navigate the conect apartment complexs and be on main street in the heart of things within minutes.

We stayed just the one night (two couples) in a two bedroom apartment. Arriving after office hours our key and directions were in the safe waiting for us, and a quick intercom call yielded the combination. Lovely apartment, clean and fresh with huge balcony adjacent to the lap pool. We utilised the small gym which was sufficient, and the spa. The location is only a short walk to the beach, clubs and shops. Overall we had a pleasant stay and would definitely stay here again.

We had a 2 brm appartment and were dissapointed. You are charged for fresh linen at $70 for 2 beds and $30 for any dishes not done. Not a 5 star rating I think this is more like a 4 star.
Not easy to get to our room either. There were no car parks taken up where the lifts were and were not offered to park closer to the lifts as we have 2 young children.
Old style decor.

Room Tip: get a park near lifts rooms 30-33

We had a two night stay and was disappointed for the price that the room wasn't serviced. It was certainly comfortable and well equipped but they need to install some privacy drapes - you have to have the black out drapes pulled all the time when showering / bathing / changing etc.
The place is only one street off the main esplanade and you walk past restaurants on the way down to David Low Way. Try the Coolum Surf Club - great restaurant and atmosphere.
