Needs an update
Perfect location. However the room was very tired and over due for a overhaul. The carpets and chairs were badly stained. The lighting was dull. The bed lamps were rusted. Bathroom was so old...the vanity basin had a huge crack running from side to side. Saying that, the shower pressure was great, so we enjoyed a nice hot shower. The bed was comfortable. Lovely restaurants close by, so spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat.

Overnight stay.
The complex and unit was a bit dated but comfortable. It was in a good area with views of the ocean and plenty of places for a meal very close by. Other than a little maintenance work required, it was quiet but I felt it was a little overpriced. Would stay there again on a special or out of season.

Coolum convenience
Convenient location across from the beach. The apartments was ok but needed some maintenance in the bathroom and on the lock. It was good for a relatively cheap stay.

Filthy Disgusting
Disgusting, filthy, dirty. Management provide shampoo but no conditioner. Room was so gross i almost vomited on walking in. (I managed a 120 room resort for nearly 9 years) Carpet stained with who knows what, a balcony that you cannot sit on due to air conditioning vent blowing hot air straight onto you. The entire building is falling apart i.e wooden steps to pool etc rotten.. one step wrong and you will fall through it. Bathroom disgusting. We were told on check in.... we had been upgraded.... id hate to see whats lower than what we were put in. If you want a jail cell experience... yep book.... oh and they also take a $200 deposit from your credit card and wont refund for (10 to 12 days) depending on "your bank" which is a lie and illegal. Office of fair trading to definitely be contacted regarding this... The WORST room I've ever stayed in, in my life. Yes management were told and sent a poor maintenance man to see us. The look on his face was one of defeat. We were not offered an apology nor refund. I cannot tell you all how disappointed we were. We are poor and live in a donga, my partner is in remission from cancer and this was the first time we had decided to go out in years.. We paid for a beach retreat and got the most disgusting dirty jail size room with furniture that looked like a dog had been eating at it. Our donga is better than this place. Management couldn't care less. Do not book this place.
