I've stayed here many times and always keep coming back because it's amazing value for the quality of the facilities. Plus it is perfectly position to town and beach and the staff are very friendly and provide excellent service.

The queen size bed was simple 2 super singles pushed together (super uncomfortable) and the hotel WiFi was inaccessible.

Beach Retreat Coolum was a great place to stay. It was in great location to the beach and the shops, I was able to walk. It was a good spacious room and the bed was comfy. The spa bath/shower in the bathroom was a little hard to get in and out of because the sides are quite high. Only limited parking so first come first served. Other than that, a wonderful place to stay.
