Excellent views, accommodation clean, modern, well equipped and a very comfortable king size bed!....upon arrival a very thorough introduction to all the amenities, felt right at home. Can't wait to take our family back for a longer holiday......and you won't get better... More

We were greeted by friendly, professional staff and given a full tour of the facilities. The rooms are spacious, light, airy and a superb view. I will start with the free parking, you enter a secure under ground area and then proceed to your own double garage with self closing door from there it is a short walk to an... More

Two families travelling together and we booked 2x3 bedroom apartments. The apartments are superb: clean, well furbished, very spacious, spa bath with view outside, direct lift access to room, personal double garage with locked door in basement, good laundry, large kitchen with walk in pantry, and the most spectacular view from living and main bedroom. Honestly, the view is mesmerizing... More

We loved staying here for a mid week getaway. Perfect views right opposite the beach. There is a little traffic that drives along the road through the day but it didn't bother us at night. We were out and about most of the day anyway. Next time we come to port I'd have no problem staying here. We were in... More

We were thrilled with the service we received while at Sandcastles in Port Macquarie. The accommodation is modern, spacious and immaculately kept. Fabulous views and only a stones throw from the beach. The friendly staff went above and beyond to make our stay with them enjoyable and comfortable. Highly recommended, we will definitely be back!

I recently stayed at the hotel and was amazed by the very friendly service, where I was upgraded to a penthouse apartment at no extra charge. The apartment was immaculate, beautifully presented, clean, secure and with an amazing view. I was given my own private lock up garage for my car which provided peace of mind. The bed was super...

This is a fantastic location. The beach is just across the road, the Bowling Club is just behind the units which is great for good value meals, beautiful morning walks along the breakwall of the river and the shops are just a short stroll down the road. The unit we had was amazing. Beautifully furnished, comfortable bed, spotless and a... More

Our family of 4 stayed at Sandcastles for a couple of nights on the way through Port Macquarie. The apartments have everything a family could wish for - clean, secure, modern, well equiped, amazing views and the best location with all the facilities at your door step. The Stunned Mullet (the best restuarant in Port) is right next door and... More
