We stayed here over the New Year 2015 holiday period in a 2 bedroom apartment. Originally we were on the 3rd level, Unfortunately air conditioning in the main living area was not working properly. After informing staff on day 2 of this issue, they informed us that no other apartments were available but were very kind and helpful in offering... More

We have stayed at this resort multiple times always requesting the beach house with the gorgeous timber four poster bed and Balinese styling. We love the space, perfect for a small or large family, especially the little courtyard that is safe for tiny humans. The beach house we choose has a well stocked DVD collection which is a fun bonus... More

We stayed at Sand Dunes Resort over the New Year and was very happy with the apartments and overall our stay was lovely. We booked a 4 bedroom apartment which was very spacious (especially the kitchen and dinning area). The kitchen had all the bits and bobs to make and eat our dinners. The lovely pool was a step off...

We stayed in a ground floor 2 bedroom unit for 4 nights and it was awesome! The pool is absolutely incredible, huge lagoon style, one heated, one not and a large spa. Our little boy loved the easy pool access and having the little private courtyard to play and BBQ in was fantastic! The apartment itself was nicely appointed and... More

We have stayed there 3 years in a row we just love the resort and pool/spa and beach and nice quiet location! A few good restaurants in the area is all we need, it keeps the place quiet and family friendly.

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.

Our two bedroom apartment was generous in size and came equipped with everything we needed and plenty more,... More
