We took forever choosing a hotel from the many online, and I have to say I think we made the right choice. When we booked we... More

Had a fantastic time. What a spot! Almost on the beach. Beautiful beach views. Lovely clean unit with kitchen and laundry facilities. Managers are very helpful and a lot of fun and give great service. Close to restaurants. Looking forward to returning in May.

We stayed in apt 6A, a fantastically fitted out corner apt with lots of sun, great views, BIG flat screen TV, a/c, walk across from the beach and... More

We loved being able to... More

My wife and I recently spent two weeks at the Emerald Sands, and I have to say it was absolutely the best experience of our lives. We spent months researching where we wanted to stay while on the Gold Coast, and the Emerald Sands was the only place that met all of our needs. First, the property is literally right... More

A special thank you to John and Anne, our stay was amazing! We stayed during Mid-January. Everything was just a short walk away. Bus stop was just around the corner with services coming every 10-15minutes. The room was magnificent with spectacular ocean views and it had everything we could have ever wanted! Oven, dishwasher, hair dryer, stove top, dining setting... More
