Coolum at the Beach is a great place for families and large groups. Units built around 4 central pools...I only went to one. We booked the first floor and was pleasantly surprised to find a lift...I thought I would be lugging the bags up the stairs! Spacious apartments and the town houses were amazing. Kitchen with all requirements, I even cooked some cakes. Bathroom a bit dated but not bothered by it. Good verandah that overlooked pool area. So convinent with shops just across road, Coles,Dan Murphy's and the Tavern. A great French Patiserie up the road and the Beach is there too. May have to come back....

I've stayed with Michelle and the team at Coolum several times this year and you can not find a nicer group of people. Nothing is too much trouble. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The place itself is outstanding. Rooms are large. Facilities and amenities superb. It's close to Coles, Dan Murphy's and some very nice bakeries, cafes and takeaways. Plus - one of Australia's best beaches is about 100 metres from the front door. This place is brilliant for families, for business trips, for couples....can not recommend it too highly.

Booked a week away with two teenagers. Swimming isn't a priority but I can appreciate how the choice of pools (including a toddlers' pool) is a win. Our three bedroom apartment suited us well. We had heaps of space however didn't utilise the "courtyard" which backed immediately onto the lap pool with no privacy at all. I was a little disillusioned as the courtyard photos depicted far more foliage rather than an open tiled area with a pool fence. Our apartment was spacious with a luxuriously large ensuite and well appointed throughout. The shopping complex across the road was very convenient as were the plethora of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Easy to walk to the beach (there's a discrete beach entrance behind the Holiday Park across the road) and everything's at hand. My only issue was the squeaking AC outdoor units directly outside the master bedroom. It kept me awake at night. The handy clothes dryer was also exceptionally noisy and squeaky (less of an issue).

We have stayed here several times before and have always been very happy with the location- close to beaches, cafes and supermarket. Previously the units had always been clean and well presented. Unfortunately on this occasion we were allocated a unit that needed an upgrade. The unit had older furnishings, missing shelf in the shower and old fittings.
