Enjoyed staying at coolum at the beach. Rooms are pleasant, fairly basic in that there is just enough of everything ie 2 towels, 4 coffee sachets etc. Room was right at the back which wasn't fantastic (nearly a block back). Was great that there is 3 pools with one being for toddlers.

Thank you for your review of our resort. I'm glad you liked the choice of pools. There are actually four, so you will have another one to discover when you stay with us again! As fully self-contained apartments we provide a small volume of condiments as a starter pack. As you say, it is just enough to start you off....

Great 3rd floor apartment. Spotless, full kitchen, huge shower in main bedroom. Comfortable lounge and beds. Dining table inside and on balcony. Good air conditioning in all rooms. Fantastic pool areas and bbq by the pool facilities. Friendly staff. Quiet location away from traffic noise. If we return to Coolum this is where we would stay. Every time.

Hello Paul. I am not surprised to read this review and disappointed that we were not able to move you to a more suitable apartment during your stay because of peak season bookings.

We had a week here over Christmas, it is a great option for families, with heated pools for the kids to spend hours in and a nice location. Right next to Coles and a bottle shop and a walk to the beach and the local cafes etc, what could be better.
