We were made to feel very welcome and the management team were always helpful,sorting out tour issues and arranging bookings. We arrived late evening after normal check in hours but everything was made simple for us. Our apartment had good facilities and overlooked the lovely pool and garden. A great base for exploring the nearby reef and rainforest.

We were staying in port douglas sands resort for 4 nights. We got a beautiful apartment for 7 of us. The standard is really high, resort is beautiful and the people who working there are so kind and professional. Everything was excellent! This place can make your holidays in Port Douglas be even more pleasant.

The hotel is nice with all the rooms around the pool and gardens, the pool itself is good for kids, it has a wading end, spa and sandpit. We had a two bed apartment with a/c only in the main living area, all the rooms had ceiling fans but they didn't work all that well, particulary the one in the... More

First impressions were really friendly as reception gave us good information via email before arrival as well as booking us a brilliant trip out to the reef with Posieden tours, and we got a 5% discount as we were staying there. The hotel rate also included parking in the underground car park and a basic breakfast. We only did this... More

We spent 5 days in Port Douglas and stayed at Sands Resort a week ago and had the best time ever a family can have. We were amazed by the beauty of this area and the helpfulness of the resort's staff. Amanda always went for the extra mile whenever we needed some advise or help regarding activities and what to...

We had a lovely stay at Sands Resort. The kids loved the pool and sandpit. Our room was nice and had all the comforts you need. We had a ground floor apartment that was meters away from the pool so it felt like one of those swim-out rooms you get at the exclusive resorts but for a fraction of the... More

My sister and I stayed in a 2bedroom apt from sat to thurs and have nothing but wonderful memories of our stay. The staff were friendly and welcoming, rooms were immaculate and the pool was welcome at the end of our day of tours. We will be returning next year for double the length of stay. Highly recommend this resort... More

Great swimming pool for babies and good rooms with all the facilities you are expecting. Quite and clean I definitely recommend this place to all families. Breakfast is a bit disappointing with no fresh fruit or proper coffee available.
