Stayed here three now because of the location and excellent value. The units are very clean, well equipped with secure car parking. Loved the pool and superbly clean bar b que area. I will certainly be going back next time I am on the GC, thanks to the team at Diamond Sands

This is an average resort but for the money we spent - it was better that we expected. If you are trying to holiday on a budget - this is great. IT is nice and quite and has a nice pool. Everything is charged for (& I mean everything) over and above what you receive when you first get there.... More

This was our second visit to Diamond Sands and it was as lovely as we remembered it. It's location is so convenient, my husband surfs and a short stroll to the beach was ideal. Only minutes from Pacific Fair, 10 mins to Burleigh, close to everything. Loved that it was only 3 storeys high, and the pool area (with the... More

The resort is in the Gold Coast highway and each apartment so individually owned. The one we had was very nice but not facing the pool area so ask for one facing the pool. There are no dining facilities but there are a few outside. We found we needed to rent a car to get around . There are stairs... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment over Mothers Day weekend. Don, the owner, is a hoot. The apartment was HUGE and very clean. Only a short walk to the beach. The pool is a walk in with sand at one end. There is a large selection of books and magazines to read, which was great.

3rd time I have stayed here and once again was absolutely brilliant. Never crowded, huge spacious 3 bedroom apartment (have stayed in 2 bedroom as well). Pool and BBQ area is always immaculate and enjoyed a few nights by the pool having BBQ and a few drinks. Had two other groups with us and their rooms were awesome as well... More

Really enjoyed this place. We had our own two bedroom apartment. However one room was locked which was strange but it didn't matter as I came with my significant other. As most of the apartments are owned by other people you do need to look after the items. It seems people also live there on a permant basis. I took... More

Good for families but that's about all. Zero privacy if that's a consideration. Great pool, kids and mums and dads seem to like it. The units themselves were ok, not the cleanest place I've ever been (there were paddle pops in the freezer), but comfortable enough. Given the options, I probably wouldn't stay again

Stayed for a night on 21 December in a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms are dated (especially the beds) but considering we stayed at the height of peak season, we can't complain for the price we paid. We had a balcony with a view of the beautiful resort pool.The location is ok - walking distance to a patrolled beach and... More
