This place was great. We were looking for a quiet place for our family which includes 2 adults and 2 kids aged 1 and 3. We also went along with another family of 5 who were equally as happy. We wanted somewhere which wasnt too busy, which was clean and quiet and a place where we felt safe. I feel that we got all of this at Seacove. We got a 2 bedroom apartment which overlooked the pool which was great for the kids because they slept in the back room away from the pool and which was big enough for a portacot, with our older child slepping in the big queen bed. We had the 2nd bed room (both rooms came with a bathroom) and the resort and rooms were quiet, so we did not have to worry about making noise and waking the kids. They were clean and very well kept- I think the people who wrote the bad review on trip advisor had the wrong resort- we have travelled alot and it was of a high standard!
The best thing for us was that our room overlooked the pool/hot tub which are super kid friendy, warm, very quiet and beautifully laid out. We took a baby monitor so while the kids slept, we hung out in the pool or the hot tub during the day, or the lovely bbqs orwhich were poolside, at night time. We went during school time and felt like we had the pool to ourselves most days.
The resort is north of town which we loved- we wanted privacy and didnt want noise, so didnt want a resort in the centre of town- but coolum is tiny- so it is only about 700m or so from town/coofee shops/restaurants!- so you can easily walk/drive in to get your food/coffee etc. The resort, unlike many others, is set back off the main road so is very quiet. There are no sea views because it is set back from road- but that means it is quieter than most resorts because you dont have the traffic noises- and anyway we could hear the ocean and our poolside apartment was good enough for me! Plus if we wanted to see the beach,we walked to it!
The owners were fabulous- super helpful and kid friendly, which made a real diference.
This place is excellent. We have booked to go back next year!
