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. There was more than enough room for my family of five. Really comfortable and clean. We ate our meals in the courtyard out the... More

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

Stayed for 7 nights at the beginning of February and we were very impressed with the size and facilities of the apartment. Staff, pool and spa were all fantastic too. Marcoola is a very small place, but you are only 10 mins drive to the bigger towns of Mooloolaba, Coolum etc - would highly recommend staying at the Sand Dunes.

Enjoyed our 5 night stay in a 2 bed ground floor apartment. Loved the direct pool access, the room was clean and had everything you need. Marcoola is a nice spot and not too busy. Jen from Suncoast beauty offers fabulous treatments/massages at her home day spa set up at excellent prices. I would definitely recommend this as she is... More
