“Stay in paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

We were greeted by friendly, professional staff and given a full tour of the facilities. The rooms are spacious, light, airy and a superb view. I will start with the free parking, you enter a secure under ground area and then proceed to your own double garage with self closing door from there it is a short walk to an elevator that will take you to your room. With the use of an electronic key you can only open the elevator to your own room, you will need one of the two keys to access any of the areas of the building. When you step out of the elevator you enter a small alcove with an auto light that contains the emergency stairs and a fire hose, from there you enter a clean three bedroom unit. If you rent as one bedroom the other two are locked, if you rent two only one is locked. We enjoyed using the fully equipped kitchen, sitting around the full size dinning table or relaxing on the comfortable lounges looking out at the surf beach or over Port Macquarie entrance. The bathroom area is large, clean and easy to use.each bedroom has it's own television and the main bedroom has a king size bed and here is the only bad thing we found the mattress was soft and was made with a plastic top and bottom that did not breath and made you sleep hot even with a light blanket were you touched the bed you were hot even when the rest of you not touching the bed was cold. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Two families travelling together and we booked 2x3 bedroom apartments. The apartments are superb: clean, well furbished, very spacious, spa bath with view outside, direct lift access to room, personal double garage with locked door in basement, good laundry, large kitchen with walk in pantry, and the most spectacular view from living and main bedroom. Honestly, the view is mesmerizing as we watch the dolphins frolic sitting on the balcony on the outdoor setting. If you want to be in the heart of the town then this is probably not the place for you as it is approximately 10-15 mins walk along the waterfront path from the apartment. However, if you like to walk and explore the beaches, then you'll be very happy here as you can follow the trail for many kms in the other direction.

The only downside was the difficulty in visiting our friends in another apartment as the entries and apartments are so secure.

We have really enjoyed our stay, only wish it was longer, and will most definitely come back.

We loved staying here for a mid week getaway.
Perfect views right opposite the beach. There is a little traffic that drives along the road through the day but it didn't bother us at night. We were out and about most of the day anyway.
Next time we come to port I'd have no problem staying here. We were in one of the ground floor terrace apartments

Stayed here for a week during the annual Ironman Event. Great position with good views. Own secure double garage. Huge master bedroom with ensuite. Well equipped kitchen. 10 mins walk to town. Security top notch. Danny very helpful. Would recommend to all. We would definitely come again.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment with ocean views.

We were thrilled with the service we received while at Sandcastles in Port Macquarie. The accommodation is modern, spacious and immaculately kept. Fabulous views and only a stones throw from the beach. The friendly staff went above and beyond to make our stay with them enjoyable and comfortable. Highly recommended, we will definitely be back!

I recently stayed at the hotel and was amazed by the very friendly service, where I was upgraded to a penthouse apartment at no extra charge. The apartment was immaculate, beautifully presented, clean, secure and with an amazing view. I was given my own private lock up garage for my car which provided peace of mind.

The bed was super comfortable and the spa in the master bedroom overlooking the ocean was magical. It made it very difficult to leave!

The beach is just across the road and boasts amazing beach walks. The shops are only a 15 minute walk away and have everything you need. I would definitely recommend staying here!

We have spent many holidays (14 to be exact) in Port Macquarie..we absolutely love the town. Coming from Canada we spend a minimum of five weeks. Our last three trips to Port Macquarie...we have stayed in the same apartment on the 4th floor at the Sandcastle..it truly is our home away from home... the apartment is amazing but at the same time comfortable and homey. During our stay we host a number of dinner parties or lunches or just a drink on the balcony...we have quite a few friends in Port and we usually are hosting between 8 and 12 guests...The apartments are so spacious and well appointed it is such a pleasure entertaining. This year a BBQ was added on the balcony another plus...and yes we did use it several times. The view is spectacular over Town Beach and the back balconies also have amazing views overlooking the bowling green, tennis courts, cricket oval and the ocean...honestly it doesn't get any better. Danny, Barb and the entire staff are always pleasant, helpful and if you have a concern it is dealt with immediately.
If you enjoy walking just cross the street to Town Beach and you can do Beach Walks for several km. it is just so beautiful. For a perfect location, amazing accommodations, pleasant staff, am sure one of the best views in Port...we would certainly recommend the Sandcastle Apartment on William Street, Port Macquarie
