Terrific location, across road from surf club and at one end of main shopping, restaurant precinct. Was slightly hesitant to book, after reading previous reviews about rude receptionist but new managers since February 2014 and they are very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms although not over large are comfortable and clean. Living room area quite sufficient in size and well equipped.... More

Apartments are in a good location and have a good view from the 4th level but have seen better days. I was a little disappointed. The good things: just a 2 minute walk to the patrolled beach, cafes, etc, comfortable bed, nice views from balcony plus roof top terrace up a spiral staircase, pleasant staff. The not so good things:... More

Stayed in Room 403, which had good view of beach & goings-on along the esplanade. Clean & comfortable, with well-supplied kitchen. Serviced daily for towels & bed-making. Nice balcony, plus spiral stairs up to rooftop bbq & lounges. Sink in bathroom in that particular room was pretty high - had to stand on tippy-toes! But all workable- no complaints at... More

Stayed Australia Day long weekend. Room 405 with private roof top. Room layout great, views fantastic, roof top is excellent. Close to everything. Why I didn't give a 5 star rating, room was very tired needs to be repainted and given some TLC, very dusty, apart from that everything else is great. Would stay here again.

We had a fantastic time at Sandcastles from the moment we walked in, the staff were more then happy to do anything for us, they were very helpful and even let us book in early as we turned up a bit before 2pm. We then walked into our room which took our breath away with the views, we had a... More

We stayed in this hotel for only one night on our drive to Brisbane from Gladstone area, and we enjoyed the stay overall. The rooms were spacious and well-kept, and we did get a very good night's sleep. We tried to wash clothes (as did the other couples we were with in 2 other rooms), and we all had trouble... More

Booked to stay at sandcastles which was a good reasonable rate , only to be served by a very rude lady that had no manners or right attitude for her job . So needless to say we spent the extra money and found much friendlier accommodation elsewhere in mooloolaba

Convenient location and the room was clean and basic (a little outdated) - however I will not be returning due to the incredibly rude manager (Julie) when I rang to book in she was short and rude from the moment she answered the phone. I booked through an online booking site and wasn't aware that my information was not given... More

I got this via wotif.com and was surprised that I could get a unit here in Christmas week for the price. I had the choice so I opted to pay a bit more and went for the rooftop unit and I recommend you do the same. The views are incredible and how much is too much to pay to be... More

Stayed at the Sandcastles on the beach for a couple of nights a week for several weeks whilst we were attending to ongoing medical treatment at Mooloolaba. Perfect central location and ideal for couples, with the lovely girls on reception being extremely accommodating to our needs. Enjoyed the more personalized attention that is sometimes lacking in the larger resorts.
