I recently stayed at Arlia Sands in Hervey Bay. The unit was lovely, recently redecorated and very clean. Sue (manager) was very friendly and arranged our trip for Whale Watching. It was in easy walking distance to wander to shops/cafes and hotels for meals.

Well after looking at the website Arlia sands looked great, we were so excited for our first family holiday in 3 years. Being in the accommodation industry it was easy to tell that the Arlia Sands is not maintained both the apartment we had and also the common property.

We had a week here and enjoyed our stay. The apartment was spacious, clean and well maintained. The owners were excellent at providing advice on tours and their recommendation for whale watching and Fraser Island tours were spot on. The location suited us, not far from the beach and great for walks along the shoreline. Plenty of restaurants close by.

We have just returned from a fantastic day whale watching in Hervey bay with Arlia Sands. We saw many whales, simply lost count. The boat was also roomy & comfortable, not at all overcrowded. All of us got an opportunity to get close & personal with these gigantic creatures. We had complimentary morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea as well....

So happy to hear you had a fabulous time here and enjoyed your whale watching experience. Being able to help our guests to select and book the correct tour for them is definitely high on our priority list and we are so lucky to have the majestic humpbacks visit our little piece of paradise every year.

The affordable Arlia Sands Apartments are conveniently located near beach, shops and easy walking distance to numerous restaurants in Hervey Bay. Clean and well managed with friendly help and advice on booking those all important Whale Watching and Fraser Island Tours. On the downside this is an older 1960's style two level motel. Not all apartments have had updates and...

Easy to book, staff very friendly and accommodating even greeted by a friendly family dog. Very clean and tidy. Probably only issue I can recommend improvement on is internet access. Many places these days offer free internet this one has a charge.

This apartment accommodation needs a serious make over. The bathrooms and kitchens are both tired and run down., however the rooms are kept clean by the staff. The outside of the apartments are clean, tidy and well kept.. Although new pool furniture would be a bonus. If you are looking for modern accommodation then this is not the place for...
