Sand_Dunes_Resort, General Manager at Sand Dunes Resort, responded to this review

Unfortunately at times resort managements are faced with maintenance situations within units that are beyond their control and attempt to resolve them, so as not to inconvenience guests. However on this occasion we had to offer alternate accommodation within the resort to these guests plus offered 2 free nights in a luxury beach house with $30 of meal vouchers to... More

Lovely resort, in a great location. A quiet town. Walk over the sand dunes in front if the resort to a pretty beach. Conveniantly close to the airport but without loud planes landing and taking off. We stepped out of door and straight into the crystal waters of an amazing pool. A large hot spa and then another luxurious heated... More

Thanks to TA reviews we selected Sand Dunes Resort for a 5 day weekend. On arrival we were greeted by Lauren at reception in a most welcoming and professional manner, organised booking documentation and resort map were ready for our check in. Our two bedroom apartment was generous in size and came equipped with everything we needed and plenty more,... More

I was recommended Sand Dunes by a friend and I'm glad I tried it. I really like Marcoola as a location. Nice quiet beachside town. And now having stayed at Sand Dunes it has reignited what I really like about this town. The fact that there is no roads to cross to get to the beach is fantastic with kids.... More

Just stayed 5 nights in a 3 bedroom villa (number 5) at Sand Dunes resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and for the most part am happy to recommend. The villa was spacious and clean. For a stay designed with cooking and eating in we were very disappointed with both the oven and dishwasher. The ovens dial was broken and... More

We recently booked 2 x 3 bedroom poolside villas next door to each other for family for our daughters wedding. It was the perfect place to prepare for the special day and relax afterwards too. There were plenty of shops and restaurants in the immediate area and the complex offers good facilities including pool, spa, gym and full kitchen. It... More

Pool and spa right outside our terrace, we were in it every day. Beautiful beach very close for morning walks and swims. Handy to get to Noosa and Mooloolaba for day trips. Will... More

Returned from a great family reunion. We arrived late from our flight from overseas and travelling with 2 kids can be very tiresome but the staff made it easy. Initially we were in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2 floor but decided to upgraded to a poolside villa for the kids. Wow it was amazing. The staff was so... More

We have just returned from a great family holiday at the Sand Dunes Resort. We booked a 3 bedroom beach house for 4 nights and I wish we had 4 more. The beach house was super.

My 3 girlfriends and I stayed in a 4 bedroom apartment over a long weekend and we enjoyed it tremendously. The resort had a bigger than usual spa in the middle of the complex and right in front of our apartment. We have since tried to book our holidays there but it always seems to be booked out. So book... More
