My wife and I stayed at these apartments for 2 nights whilst we were touring Austrailia during mid August. Staff were friendly and the apartment was very clean. It was well equipped and even had a washer and dryer. The kitchen was modern and well fitted out. We were in 8A which was our choice as we wanted to park...

We stayed at The Beach Retreat Coolum for 7 days in a self contained apartment. Overall the apartment was great with a fantastic view of the ocean with aĺl you would need for your stay.

The accom is a great location, but the property is getting very tired. We booked a seaview room with spa. We got a sliver of a sea view from a tiny balcony. The spa bath was broken as the bath could not be filled. Wifi was broken, carpets were musty and the whole place is desperately in need of refurbishment....

We have stayed at The Beach Retreat regularly over many years. You can't beat the location and most units have a lovely view of the beach. I have always found the staff to be helpful and friendly. At this stage, I agree with what others are saying in regard to an upgrade however we tend to book the same ocean...

Fantastic value, location, service and accommodation. Walking distance to amazing restaurants . Clean apartments with views full Foxtel, washer, dryer regulated showers and even ceiling fans for days that you don't need AC. Solar heated pool and awesome spa. Could not fault this place. Highly recommended.

We were greeted happily upon check in. Our room was clean but needs some maintenance, paint in the bathroom and some lights not working. Even though it's winter there were no blankets supplied, only a thin bedspread. So we turned on the reverse air con but had to turn it off as it began to smell musty and make a...

We got accommodation here as a gift so can't complain about price. The room #32 was tidy and well appointed. Sure it's rather run down but it's still clean. The pool spa and sauna were awesome as it was a tad too cold to swim. Great parking and nice central location. Will be baxl
