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

If you want to be away from the crowds and noise of Surfer's Paradise this is a good choice, easy to reach along The Gold Coast Highway. We arrived after 3pm on a Saturday, the reception was closed but a phone call and instructions in the safe made for easy access to our Town House. We were very pleased to... More

When booking an apartment I notice reviews about the mould problem. When questioning the cleanliness of the apartment I was to stay in noting I was travelling with people who suffer from allergies the manager claimed that due to the being in sub tropical environment mould is always going to be present. No where else on the Gold Coast that... More

My husband and I stayed at Diamond Sands for 11 nights during late October/early November 2013 in a ground floor one-bedroom apartment (actually a 2 room apartment but with one room locked off, unit 18). The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious, homely and well-provisioned and the pool and BBQ area definitely exceeded my expectations. The pool is a real tropical... More

We have travelled a lot throughout New Zealand and like the style of hiring apartments and looking after yourself. The staff were reasonably friendly but we didn't really need them during our 10 night stay. The tariff was reasonable (just) given the standard of the rooms and the level of wear. As a price point this resort is lower end... More

We had a back room and it was very quiet. The downside was that we had to climb up several stairs as we were on the third level. Car parks were tiny and hard to get in and out when the parks were fill. The rooms were tidy and comfortable. The pool was really good, the downside is that the... More

We stayed here in a 2 Bdm apartment. The first thing that struck us was how dark and dingy it was. Then the dirt!! Every surface was sticky with visible dirt and smears. Dust was thick - especially on the lamp base and dated glass table that had pretty pictures drawn in the dust from the last guests. A bacteriologist... More
