We were booked into Unit 17 which is a large one bedroom unit.The unit was clean with air-conditioning and all the usual mod-con's. We were not inconvenienced by any noise issues. The managers were in contact before our arrival and were available when we needed assistance with the smoke alarm after we checked in. The entrance to the car park... More

We had room 18 for eight nights, double room with ocean views, top floor. For two adults and one child it was very spacious, especially the living and kitchen area. Check in was easy, the office was closed so we followed the instructions in the email to collect the keys and park underneath (we had two car parks!) and finished... More

We had a weekend stay at Coolum Beach Resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our one bedroom unit was huge. It had fans and air conditioning but we didn't need it as there was bifold doors which allowed a beautiful breeze through. The resort has two very nice looking pools and a spa. There's also a great BBQ area undercover with... More

Although not right on the beach, it is visible from some rooms. You can hear the roar of the ocean, but not the traffic on David Low Way.

Not sure why they call this the beach resort. The building is not on the beach, and very few (if any?) rooms have a view of the ocean. The accommodation was surely adequate, as I did not use it as a holiday spot, but rather a place to quickly get into Nambour for a few days. The booking allowed me... More
