Perfect. We needed a place to accommodate 3 families, and it certainly did just that. The apartments were spacious and immaculate. We had a four bedroom villa along with a 2 bedroom apartment. To be able ti walk straight from apartment to pool was a highlight for all. We had the villa that walked straight out to the heaters pool... More

Perfect place to relax by the pool while the kids swim. You stepped off the balcony and into the pool. Easy access to Marcoola beach with lifeguards on duty. We had a 3 bedroom villa and it was the perfect size for 4 adults and 3 kids. We'll be back!

The best part of this resort is the pool. Lots of shallow platforms for kids to wade in and very well maintained surrounding gardens. The majority of the pool is cold water and there is also a small to medium sized heated pool. It was great to have both options. There was also a spa in the centre. We have... More

We stayed at Sand Dunes with our 10 and 13 year old boys. We really loved the spacious apartment and how it opened out to the massive pool which we had to ourselves most of the time. It was lovely and quiet and very close to 2 patrolled beaches which were never busy. The only minor gripe - not enough... More

Staying at Sand Dunes Resort was a great experience. Amazing staff, great accommodation and the location of the resort was perfect when compared to how close it was to the beach. The beach house we stayed in was very private and quiet and the spa on the roof top made the holiday! Highly recommend this resort even if you are... More

We stayed here with 2 other families with young children and stayed at one of the pool-side 3-bedroom apartments. The resort amenities were excellent. The pool was warm and clean - both kids and adults really enjoyed the swim. They also have a small gym which helped me with my fitness regim whilst I was on holidays. The kitchen has... More

I have booked a Beach house villa 3 Bdr and a Jacuzzi Roof top that was the highlight for me. The accomodation was booked for 4 nights during busy school holidays. When i checked in, i was informed that the Jacuzzi was not working and would be fixed the next day. I was offered a 10% discount for the inconvenience.... More

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

The management of Sand Dunes Resort welcomes genuine reviews. Regrettably the only facts in this guest review, is that the guest did stay 4 nights and they did experience an issue with the spa. 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... More

Had a five day stay at the Sand Dunes Resort in September with my family (8 of us in total) - stayed in the 4 Bedroom Beach House - this was truly beautiful. Had everything you could want for a relaxing stay - including a roof top Jacuzzi which was just wonderful. The house was spacious and comfortable - TV... More

Visited for a long weekend with my husband our 2 children, and my Dad. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, which was very nice. My only suggestion would be for a couple of extra dinner plates and glasses etc, so that if you have visitors there are enough for everyone. The two pools and spa are beautiful, the unheated...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom pool front apartment for 8 nights. Three levels in the apartment give lots of space, and include their own laundry, dishwasher and 2 bathrooms. (care needed on spiral staircase) These apartments get the sun in the afternoons on the pool accessible deck which was great. They have their own barbecue on the deck and... More
