Stayed here May-June for a couple of days & loved it. Plenty of space & well equipped with everything you needed - even a BBQ. Supermarket is literally across the road, which is handy. The beach is a short stroll as well. Lots of visitor parking downstairs. I would love to come back in the spring to make use of... More

This resort is my husband and my favourite place to stay on the Sunshine Coast. Coolum at the Beach is located directly across the road from the Coles supermarket complex, and close to the new Coolum Hotel and bottle shop.

Coles is nearby and a plethora of small eateries/cafe's are within walking distance. The resort has 4 different swimming pools and 3 of them are spectacularly lit at night.

Coolum at the Beach was a nice hotel. Easy walk to the street and the beach, and right across from Coles which was really convenient. Handy underground carpark and loved having a kitchen for our stay. Rooms are only serviced if you stay for 7 nights or longer which we were fine with. The bed was so comfy that we... More

So disappointed. After reading the website and reviews I booked online for two nights. Looking for the quintessential Aussie beachside holiday for my family the property description included “beautiful views” “located directly across the road from beautiful Coolum beach” “50m from the beach” and even the name “Coolum at the Beach” sounded great so I booked a 3 br Villa....

We just enjoyed a six night stay in a 2 bedroom top floor apartment. The apartment was very clean and quiet with the added bonus of a lift.

We stayed here this week and found the hotel to be ideal for us. Located just across the road from a lovely park right in front of the beach - about 100 metres to the beach altogether. The plants are very lush and tropical with many mature palms. We had a top floor unit and caught much of the sea... More
