Lovely clean and well maintained accommodation with the pool at your back door of most rooms and the beach a 2 minute walk. Reception staff were very helpful. A lovely quiet area away from the tourist shops.

Stayed in the 3 bedroom beach house. Great place to stay it was so quiet and had everything you could need in the beach house. Pool fantastic for kids and a lovely sized heated pool and huge outdoor spa. Great access to beach and the security of the resort is fantastic.

As part of a holiday package we stayed here, but we will be back of our own accord!!! What a glorious resort for families! Accessing the lagoon pool from our patio (despite the cold weather) was an absolute treat for the kids. The spa was beautifully warm. Close access meant we were able to walk along the beach every morning.... More

The Sand Dunes Resort is perfectly located, with generously appointed apartments (either 2 or 3 bedrooms) with all you need provided within. The pool and spa area is huge with beautiful gardens and bbq area. Right on the beach and within easy walking distance to shops, but bus stops right outside the premises if you want to go to the...

Nice Apartment, comfortable and the pool was amazing, the kids had a great time and it was a nice spot to catch up with all our family. Parking provided which was handy. When we wanted to stay an extra night it was no problem for the staff to organise.

We had a beautiful 3 bedroom beach house for our 7 night stay during April school holidays. Sandra and Trevor who manages the resort are a great compliment to the resort. The beach house had everything for a family. The house was spacious and very luxurious. The rooftop spa was great at anytime of the day and night. We'll definitely... More

The place is very relaxing with beach nearby and pool for the kids. BBQ facilities were sufficient and functional. With guest service we were very disappointed at the receptionist/s as returning guest. We booked to stay in three bedroom luxury beach house as we had young couples with new born babies and requested weeks in advance that if there was... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us once again. Unfortunately we are not always able to fulfill requests from guests, due to many demands on the resort and rooms available at time of booking. Not all our single beds are zippable and can be made into king beds. By putting beds together... More

Marcoola is a beautiful sea side town with the beach practically at your door within a few minutes walk. I love going to Marcoola for the quiet atmosphere and cool sea breezes. We stayed at Sand Dunes Resort and unfortunately picked a weekend with screaming children and a bucks party. The resort does have a phone for security which I... More
