We had stayed here before around 10 years ago. Great location close to beach, surf club, bowls club, hotel and shops. We stayed for a week in a one bedroom Studio overlooking the ocean. Other than checking in and out we had nothing to do with the staff there. At first glance the room had everything we needed for an...

Stayed here with disabled daughter. Apartment smelled awful and was smaller than expected. Shower good size but no handrails or seat so unsuitable for my daughter. Very inconvenient. Bed smelled of dog and stirred up allergies making it difficult to sleep. Asked to change apartment but denied. Provided with extra bed to cramp the room. Came home with bites, probably...

We stayed for 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the beach - great view! Decent sized apartment, nice bedding & well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge. Decent sized balcony. Probably needs a refurb soon - but still clean and comfortable & decent value. We would stay again.

Meant to be a 2 week stay with my partner but had only stayed for a few days as the room had a foul smell and we weren't moved to another room for another 2 days nor did reception ask cleaners to try to clean the smell out. Reception staff has EXTREMELY concerning lack of customer service and it's not...

Stayed here on a short weekend away. Great location just a short stroll to the town. Coolum is beautiful with its long stretch of sandy beach. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. And had a full kitchen and laundry. We be perfect for a self catering week away. Two lovely pool areas to choose from and the staff were very...

Nice resort, but the whole complex is starting to date a little. Room was comfortable. Was missing an ironing board and only had half roll of toilet paper (1 ply). Was an ocean view from balcony, but not from within the room itself. But location is top notch.

Stayed in a ground floor studio. Had a small view of the sea. Mattress has no comfort layer left on it you can feel the springs. No bowls or spoons for making breakfast. They told me it was too small to have a microwave. Apparently this is law. I think it is an incredibly stupid law as we were tired...

Stayed for one night to attend an event at Eumundi. The room was confusing to get to, the room had mould and paint peeling, the bed was uncomfortable and the staff didn't seem very friendly. The only thing going for it is the location across from the beach.

We stayed for two nights and requested a king bed full ocean view room. Upon arriving we were given a partial view room (and thats if you stood up, not sat down on the outdoor chairs) and a queen bed. I went back to reception to be told there was nowhere else we could be shifted to as they were...

I've been coming to this place for 10 years and i always found the pool and sauna area great even in the cooler months the pool temperature was great. Now it's freezing and no-one at the resort was using it. The room i booked was partial ocean view studio but to see the ocean you had to stand and look...
