we have stayed here a few times over the last year or so and have allways found the units very clean and the staff excellent. this weekend we stayed in a premium unit and it was very good. Large enough for 3 people and pretty much every thing in the kitchen you need.Only thing missing was a diswasher. A great location in easy walking distance to the beach. would recommend to anyone.

Appartments fairly clean at first sight but a bit run down and grubby and in need of a renovation. Kitchen clearly lacking a dishwasher as we had to rinse most of the dishes from the cupboards before being able to use them. Nice location close to Beach and Restaurants.

I stayed here for three nights and was very happy with the accommodation. The rooms were very clean and spacious. Everthing was provided and the surrounds were very quiet and close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and we were able to book our whale watching tour when we checked in. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Hervey Bay.

I stayed in U20, which was a one bedroom suite. It was more like an apartment though, with a full kitchen (the only thing it didn't have was a dishwasher).

The kitchen was modern, the linen was clean and fairly new and the furniture was comfortable and more than the standard hotel sized stuff (good to look at but useless).

This place was only a block away from the beach and would be great for backpackers, families or people like me travelling on business.

I would stay here again whether for business or pleasure.

The only niggle was that there was no soap in the bathroom on arrival - small thing I know.

Room Tip: Take a suite and save money making your own breakfasts and dinners.

Arlia Sands Resort is in Ann St, in the suburb of Torquay in Hervey Bay. It is located one block back from the seafront and all the shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance.
Walking distance is relevant in Hervey Bay as it is a large town on the coast at the northern tip of Fraser Island approx. 3 hrs north by road or train/bus from Brisbane. A car is ideal in Hervey Bay as there are many local towns and villages to visit, and if you are into fishing Hervey Bay itself, Toogum and Burrum Heads are close by. There is also a large Boat Club and RSL Club but not within close walking distance.
Arlia Sands is toward the southern end of the bay but it is a beautiful walk, for a good 10kms if you are so inclined, along the sand and returning along the beachfront. The walkway has been landscaped along the sand dunes and there are many public toilets and BBQ areas incorporated into the beachfront. There are also three large caravan aprks along the foreshore and a total of seven in Hervey Bay.
The other side of the road is basically accommodation, of all types from backpackers to 5 star resorts, and shops and restaurants. There is a large variety of restaurants and all seemed to be open even though it appeared to be relatively quiet for this time of the year. August is Whale Watching month in Hervey Bay and it is normally very busy with many operators offering whale watching cruises.
There were two supermarkets, post office, banks and ATMs close by and two hotels and bottle shops all along the beachfront. With a car there is every major retail outlet available in Hervey Bay within 10 minutes’ drive as well as the clubs and medical facilities. All told it is well set up for a pleasant holiday, particularly at this time of the year when the weather is not too hot.
Arlia Sands is a resort complex of two main buildings on either side of a central driveway. On the left hand side there were two buildings joined by a wooden “bridge”. On the other side there was one large building. Each unit has its own parking space, either under cover or under a shade cloth awning. There were 24 units of either one or two bedrooms. At the road end there is a swimming pool and BBQ area, again under a shade cloth awning. The reception staff were pleasant both on arrival and departure, and other than that we had no need to go there. There is a coin operated laundry and dryer room and clothes lines along the outside of the property. Clothes baskets and clothes pegs were available in the unit.
We were in an upstairs two-bedroom unit. It was quiet, except for the last two days when a group with children moved in to units past us. Their only access was across the wooden bridge mentioned previously. Unfortunately the boards weren’t secured and, kids being kids, they ran back and forward constantly which created a large banging noise every time they ran across. That said it was the only complaint we had all week and we were leaving the next day so we coped. Just try to avoid unit 11 or 12 as they would be the only ones affected.
I would suggest that the resort had been renovated not long ago. The paintwork was clean and neutral and the furnishings looked relatively new. There was a lounge opening into a reasonable kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet and two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and two singles in the other. The beds and bedding were comfortable and there was air conditioning in the lounge and fans in the bedrooms, not that we needed any of it with a pleasant 24 degrees most days. Might be a bit different in summer. The units on our side had sliding doors and flyscreens opening on to the balcony, however I noticed that those on the opposite side had swinging doors and no screen doors.
There was a digital TV, CD and a DVD player. The TV also had some pay TV channels.
The kitchen was reasonably well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas cooktop and microwave. The only noticeable absence was any form of oven or electric frypan. There were ample utensils, glassware, crockery and cutlery, all in good condition.
There was also a quantity of cleaning material and a starter kit of coffee/tea etc.
We had booked through our timeshare so I can’t comment on the costs of the units but for what they offered they were good value and centrally located only a block from one of the nicest beaches you will come across. There is a sailing club, outrigger club and surf club along the foreshore if you want to get physically involved as well as a fitness trail.
However the highlight had to be Sunday breakfast at the restaurant on the seafront looking out over a calm sea with a crystal clear sky overhead. Well someone has got to do it!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 11 and 12 on the top floor next to the footbridge because of the noise of people crossing on the loose floorboards
