Awesome, very well priced. Very nice & helpful manager. Would definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in Rainbow Beach or even an overnight stay before heading over to Fraser Island.

Booked this accommodation for three people sharing one room. Apartment was big and clean, staff were friendly and helpful and the amenities in the apartment were sufficient to cook and clean up after ourselves. Good value for money and location within walking distance to the beach. Would recommend to others.

We got some great recommendations with very helpful approach from the manager. We stayed here for a couple of days either side of a tour to Fraser Island, decided to stay for an extra night as Rainbow Beach is a lovely place and the amenities at Rainbow Sands were just what we wanted.

1 bedroom apartment on ground floor was great value for money. The apartment was very big and clean. Some maintenance is required, but nothing that detracts from the stay. New washing machine and tv. Pool area is very nice. Would stay again.

We stayed here in October 2014 for a surf carnival. The room size was great with 2 separate rooms (like an apartment). It was clean. Kitchen was equipped with enough utensils to prepare our own meals. Laundry and dryer was extremely handy. We felt it was very good value for money. The managers were friendly and helpful and it was... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which was actually great as it was a 2 room apartment meaning 2 doors separate apartments. Like having 2 different apartments. It Was a lovely room.

For budget traveller, this hotel is highly recommended. The room we've got was so spacious, clean and even if it's outdated, we've got all the basics we needed including fridge, washing machine, dryer, microwave, oven and even pots and utensils. Nice patio and pool area too. We stayed here before heading off to Fraser Island. Very strategic location, close to... More

I've stayed here about a dozen times over the last two years. I've always been happy with most stays here, and am particularly happy with the value for money I receive. Its location is great, away from the noisy backpacker hostels, but very close to all of the conveniences you need when travelling

I liked the place. Quite fancy for me with great views on potential sunsets over the tropical trees. Windows, fan, AC, full kitchen, great location but quiet, fair price. I wish they had free wiFi since vodafone doesn't work out there. And if only they had lights at the pool, would make swimming in the eve so much more enjoyable...
