Stayed at Sand Dunes with the kids and grandparents. The rooms are spacious and we had pool access which was great. Highly recommend getting the villas with direct pool access. About five minutes walk to the beach and the airport is five minutes by car. Coles and shops are a couple of kms away.

Our family booked a Villa and a Beach house to stay in and had a beautiful week, accommodation was lovely and worked well for our big family. Pools were very clean and the grounds are very well maintained. Great location to the beach. We were somewhat disappointed by the way we were spoken to upon leaving the resort. It was...

We joined other family members including grandchildren and had a relaxing time at the holiday resort. The apartments were a good size and adequately furnished and fairly well supplied with all the necesary kitchen and laundry appliances. Mind you, it should not be that hard to hang a few hooks to allow the hanging of towels and other clothing in...

My family and I had two, three bedroom units (#8 and 14) with a spa on the roof of each unit. We had the beach just 500m away and a wonderful swimming pool with a heated spa, as well. If we were not walking the beach, surfing at the beach, building sandcastles with the littlies at the beach you would...

We spent 7 days with our 2 daughters, husbands and 4 small children, aged 5 down to 2 to enjoy a family holiday. I don't think we could have chosen a better location than Sand Dunes. Accommodation was perfect, well equipped, good beds, modern and comfortable. The beach was a short stroll from our units and very safe for children....

Our family group of 18 has just spent a weekend at Sand Dunes in 3 poolside 3 bedroom units plus one ground floor 2 bed unit. Very comfy, well-equipped kitchen, barbecues & bedrooms all good. The pool views & proximity (on the doorstep but safely fenced off) plus pool heating & large spa made it ideal for entertaining 8 children....

Fantastic apartment, very modern, spacious and very clean. Very close to the beach, although the appointment had 3 separate amazing pools. Despite being close to the airport there is not a lot of noise. The beds are comfy, just starting to develop that little central lean.

The poolside units are handy with the kids, but the cleanliness is questionable. For a fairly expensive stay, the units could be cleaner, less dusty and certainly more self contained. It was hard to cook meals with the utensils on hand. Perhaps the previous guests helped themselves to stuff, but management should check this.

We thank you for your review. We apologise if the room cleanliness was questionable , as we pride ourselves on making sure the rooms are to a high standard of cleanliness. We wish this had been bought to our attention during your stay, so that we could have had housekeeping remedy any issues. Utensils do get moved from room to...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom poolside apartment which was amazing. The kids loved spending most of the day in the pool whilst we were able to supervise from the patio. The apartment had everything a family could want.
