We booked our room here less than 24 hours before arriving to rainbow beach one of very few places that had vacancy's, which I was grateful for but a bit dubious as why was it still half empty, but what a lovely place, everything you could want and more for the extremely competitive price, only $16 dollars per night more...

Stayed here while on a tour and was impressed with the standard. It is a motel so basic but room was big with kitchenette, a small balcony and a really nice new bathroom. Great value for money and would recommend to couples, families or backpackers

Budget accomodation at a budget price so don't expect too much. The rooms appeared to be clean enough - although I'm bit dubious about our bedroom. The manager was very friendly however and it was close enough to Rainbow Beach for our spontaneous overnight stay.

We booked to stay here for the night before going to Fraser Island. All hopes of a good nights sleep went out the window when we sat on the mattress. Sleeping on a lump of concrete might have been more comfortable!!! The air conditioning unit didn't work and there was definitely no sound proofing as sound travelled from every room... More

Booked this location as it was one of the cheapest options to stay for a wedding at Rainbow Beach. Room was generally clean, however, cutlery and crockery didn't look to be washed from the last use. Very basic room, no iron or hairdryer, bed wasn't the most comfortable and had booked a queen bed only to receive a double bed... More

Great location. Air conditioner didnt work, thank goodness for the lovely breeze. Slept in lounge on fold out couches as the bedroom was as hot as a sauna and the fan only worked on one speed... incredibly slow! good sized rooms. Electricution hazard in the bathroom, power point taped onto the wall with masking tape. Budget accomodation at 4 star... More

Rainbow Sands Resort was a last minute booking, 1 bedroom apartment was a great size and had everything we need for a couple of nights. Close to shops, beach and sports club, undercover parking and a swimming pool for the kids. Other visitors were quiet and We didn't have a noise problem. Staff friendly and helpful - I've always stayed... More

Stayed here on Saturday night after driving up from Noosa without booking ahead. Had looked online and couldn't find any reasonably priced accommodation (possibly to deter schools?) only to find there was actually plenty available. We had a look at a one bedroom unit ($130) which was spacious but probably more than we needed for the night so opted for... More

Functional. A place to sleep. Affordable. Basic. I'm sure that you get the picture, except that I've stayed in a decent number of these style of places around Australia and this one just seems a notch down. Maybe I'm more forgiving of these types of places in the country bush and outback where choice is limited, but here you are... More

It was unplanned accomodation due to our car breaking down on the way to Fraser Island. So we ended up stayed for 4 nights, since our car break down on Friday and have to wait till Monday for the mechanic to inspect it and for some muck up with the mechanic we ended up stayed from Friday night till Tuesday...
