This location is second to none, unfortunately the attitude of the managers leaves a lot to be desired. When we reported the air conditioning was stuck on full fan and was so noisy we couldnt get a decent nights sleep, the answer we got was it was no good calling in an engineer as he would say they needed a...

Nice little spot up from the Surf Club. Our single room room was well appointed and comfortable with a small but comfortable balcony that had a veiw overlooking the surf club and up the Coolum beach looking north. Has a great cafe called My Place downstairs.

I was really happy with the room, sensational view, centrally located and good parking. Even though the apartments are a little date, they were extremely clean, tidy and comfortable for a family of 4. The pool isn't heated, but that didn't stop us enjoying a swim. I felt it was good value for money. Room 7.

We loved staying in Unit 14. The views from the living area, balcony & master bedroom are absolutely fantastic, beach, big waves, surfers etc. The unit was beautifully presented, very clean, well set up, centrally located etc. The apartment was very private, has a beautiful freestanding bath & is perfect for a romantic weekend. Totally recommend it!

We have stayed at Coolum Baywatch twice. Great ocean views from our balcony and shops and restaurants just a short stroll away. The unit we stayed in was clean, spacious and functional. Staff were friendly and helpful. cant wait to return for our 3rd stay in September. watching the whales from our balcony last sept was an added bonus.

We absolutely loved out time in Coolum. The location of the hotel is excellent as is the beach across the street! Our room was clean and spacious- however the bathroom could do with a bit more privacy. The restaurant downstairs serves some lovely prawns while you listen to the ocean across the street. Although the pool is a bit small-... More
