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

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...
