Just sad we'd chosen this as a one night stop over on our way through and arrived early evening. Amazing views from the room and adventurous walk around the rocks and beach at tour doorstep. No sign of any rock wallabies but lovely place to stay. Room equipped with a few more extras than you normally would including a toaster... More

These are very old fashioned motel units, but they do have an awesome view. It did have a modern tv which was good. It's a short walk to the beach and there is a cafe down the road and a chinese restaurant next door. There was nothing really bad about this place, but it dudnt have any wow factor. I... More

We stumbled upon this amazing little spot by accident after the first place we stopped couldn't accommodate us. So glad we did! Ocean views on 2 sides, gorgeous private beaches that do not appear to be afflicted with stingers, so green and well kept. The room itself is a little older but very well equipped and very clean - perfect... More

My family and I stayed here recently whilst my husband had business in Bowen. We had never stayed before and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find such an amazing view from the ground floor room. The lawns are well maintained with picnic tables and various places to sit and take in the ocean littered around the property. An... More

Absolutely loved staying here. The resort is a compilation of motel rooms and villas. All are a touch older but also appear to have been renovated in recent times and are all comfortable and have great facilities depending on what you need. The grounds are kept immaculately and are an absolute credit to the groundskeeper who is a great guy... More

We stayed for three nights with an 8 month old baby. The rooms were comfortable and serviced daily. Even the baby's portacot that we brought with us was made and his toys lined up. Staff were very polite and waved when we would walk past. Grounds were beautiful and the view was stunning.

The guys at Whitsunday Sands were happy to price match and gave us a great room with an awesome view of the water. This 'resort' even has its own little private beach with great snorkelling around the rocks. - you can pick up snorkelling equipment at the cabin park next door quite cheaply. Great place to stay, highly recommended if... More

The resort is in an amazing location. Right on the water with ocean views from most rooms. Staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and kept immaculately clean every day. I stay regularly and look forward to my next visit.

Whitsunday Sands would have to be the best value resort in Bowen.i found Bowen an ordinary town till you drive five minutes out of town to this stunning headland and get a room right on the beach for the same money as you would pay in town.Room was large and very well renovated for an older type of resort with...

Whitsunday Sands Resort was a real surprise. It looks as though it is an older resort that has been renovated and very well done. Office staff was very welcoming and even though we had a bay view it was still breathtaking. Set on a fabulous headland with walks to the ocean side or the bay side, It was a shame... More
