These apartments are beautiful. Well set up, 4-5 star, great location, totally self contained. There is a great pool on site, walk straight out onto the beach or stroll down to horseshoe bay. There are also some great walks around the bays. The Thai restaurant on the ground level is fantastic.

Doing a long haul drive from the south to far North Qld. Now Bowen is not the most exciting of towns, but if you drive 10 minuet through the town to Horse shoe Bay you will be well rewarded. We stayed at Coral Cove Apartments number 31 to be exact . The unit was spotlessly clean, with amazing views. Everything you could need is there. Very large fridge, washer and driver, great bed and even better pillows. 2 Minuets walk to the cafe with great coffee and meals at a fair price. The bay is perfect if you have a young family.

Our apartment was on the second floor with excellent views across the beach, sea and mountains in the background. Spacious, modern and clean, with all the necessities for a long stay. Fully equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area, plus a balcony for viewing the sunsets.
Main bedroom had a comfy bed, clean ensuite and dressing room. It is a two bedroom apartment but for us used as a one bedroom, the second bathroom open so we could use the washing machine. It was all in good order.
We were grateful the aircon was turned on for our arrival on a very hot afternoon. There’s a lift from the secure basement carpark - very convenient.
A very comfortable stay and we would definitely visit again as a preference in Bowen. Not cheap but well worth it.

A beautiful location and apartment however, we were told just prior to arrival that the air conditioning in the main room was not working. We were told it would be fine to just open the windows and cool the room with the breeze. Two problems with that were the windows had no insect screens and it was February and north Queensland so hot and humid! We asked for a alternative but similar room and was swapped to another room but then told we would have to pay an extra $600 for two nights. When we argued that this was unreasonable we were told we could go elsewhere. Finally a portable air-con was produced and installed unfortunately the staff had no clue as to how to set it up and after it had leaked all over the floor we decided to turn it off for our own safety. The rooms were beautiful and the outlook glorious but the management have a lot to learn about customer service and how to resolve problems when they arise.

After so many years of spending time at this once beautiful resort it’s sad to see how much the new management have let it become run down.
It is an absolutely beautiful spot to stay. Beautiful beaches, clean water and really peaceful.
The building security is now non existent, anyone can now get access to the grounds and buildings where as before it required a fob, the gardens are full of weeds and even furniture, the pool is filthy with slime on some of the walls. The front beach access is full of prickles. The terrible smell that greets you when you first walk into the reception area is overwhelming. The apartment we were in was clean but badly in need of some maintenance, TLC and a thorough clean. Doors that jammed and one we couldn’t even get open, stains on the rug and blinds, fans that didn’t work, It’s such a shame to see an amazing place deteriorate. I hope the owners of the apartments and/or the owners of the management rights take action before it gets worse.

Hi Sue, I have run a Guest List Historic Report for the 8th of February, and we could not find your name as our guest. It would have been appreciated if you had come to us at the time and let us know your concerns rather than post an anonymous complaint. Regards, Management

Chose this place to have a family get together. First since Covid. Stayed in unit 19 - 3 bed 2 bath, 2nd floor. Knocked out by the stunning views. Ours was on the northern curve closer to beach which was just below us. We could see everything from bay on left all the way around to rocks to the east. Had booked very early in year and were upgraded.
5 adults in the apartment during day and we all had plenty of room to move about. So good, it seemed a waste to leave the unit! Just short walk to Horseshoe Bay to snorkel (byo because of Covid) and a short walk to a lookout or longer walk if you wanted. Many snorkelled in water in front of unit. Caught no fish :(
Well set up with main bedroom and two smaller, probably better for children than other couples.
The frig freezer was big and there was a wine frig. Plenty of crockery etc and salt and pepper and cooking spray. Restaurant downstairs was excellent.
We had an issue with air con and they went to a lot of trouble to fix. But the ventilation throughout with a breeze was good. Dining could be indoor or outdoor.
Not sure if the same in other units. Think ours was the best! :) highly recommend this unit.

The location is fabulous, we were blown away with the view and the sunset we arrived to. The 3 bedroom apartment was large and clean, had so much space for a family of 5, it was great.
The pool was warm enough and the kids enjoyed hours in there, the closeness to the beach and Grays bay was superb.
Reception were so helpful when we arrived, we could walk to horseshoe bay and the cafe there, it was so relaxing.
We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with my family including two teenage daughters and a girlfriend so 5 of us. It was so spacious we all had plenty of room which was great. The furnishings were very nice but the beds too soft for my personal taste. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked a lot during our stay. The apartment we so nice we didn't feel a need to go out. The view was absolute perfection, even on our lower floor.

Secure parking with two numbered and allocated spots was a bonus.

My only complaint was the restaurant was very noisy so at night we shut the doors and in the morning the restaurant cleaners were also very noisy. Shutting the door blocked out all the noise. Having said that, it was convenient to just go downstairs to get a beer or a meal at the restaurant so the restaurant was a mixed bag.

We enjoyed our stay here so much we plan to visit Bowen annually and to stay at Coral Cove Apartments.

This was an absolute gem.

We had a spectacular view from our balcony, plenty of room in the apartment and the bedrooms were clean and tastefully decorated. On-site restaurant was very nice and staff were extremely friendly.

The beach in front of our unit was a lovely private area.

3 bedroom apartment we stayed was very well set out with plenty of extras.
Did have trouble with the air-conditioners - one we could never get to work properly.

Besides this, it was a great place to stay.

We spent three nights here with family and had the nicest stay. The apartments are right on the beach and walking distance to Horseshoe Bay. The apartments were modern, spacious, clean and quiet. We had amazing views and felt so relaxed being there. Will certainly be back

Answer from Coral Cove R
Bowen
Apartment 17, while having great views up along the coastline, has privacy from the pool. Both the bedroom and the balcony have no other apartment overlooking them which makes this apartment type very popular for a quiet and relaxing stay. The Cove Restaurant, which is owned independently of us, is open for lunch and dinner six days a week with Tuesday being their day off. Any enquiries for the restaurant should be directed to them on 07 4786 3842. Thank you for your enquiry.
