We've been staying at Sanctuary Resort for many years and are always very happy to be there. We've stayed in 4 different units now, depending whether family are with us or if we are by ourselves. Each unit has it's different ambience and we enjoy being there even more these days, now that Gary and Lisa are managing, along with... More

We are regular visitors to Sanctuary Beach. Have been holidaying there for years. We just love the location! Right on the beach - great for kids as no roads to cross. We always stay in one of the oceanfront rooms as you cannot beat the value. If you're looking for five star rooms this place isn't for you. But if... More

We enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing weekend here at Sanctuary Beach Resort, living in Brisbane it's our new weekend getaway!! We loved the beach on your doorstep and the local Surf club has excellent food and stunning views.

Everything was as described. We stayed for 9 days at a beach front, 2 bedroom, beautifully decorated, and most importantly, clean condo. Lots of little details that made our stay even more comfortable; such at filter jug, plastic cups for the kids, abundance of cooking utensils, TV in the master bedroom. The location was perfect ; Viking Restaurant etc, but... More

Hello Akaall, Thanks for the wonderful review of our Beach Front property. Yours was probably the most extensive review I have encountered since purchasing the Management of the property in 2007, and I noticed you included photos of other areas nearby in your review. The good thing about having over an acre of property is clients can separate to different... More

We recently stayed 2 weeks at this hotel. The locaton is something special, from the great uncrowded beach out the front, the close by play area for the kids, to the shops and pubs just a short walk away. being an Aussie family that has lived a long time overseas, it made us all very homesick. Have already booked again... More

Thanks Marcus T for your many compliments. Your assessment of our uncrowded beaches is spot on. Currumbin did win Cleanest Beach award Queensland last year and we are fortunate to reside in a beautifully visual area and have the council sift the sand with the aid of a tractor every week. The visualof the clean white sand and sparking Blue... More

We loved the sea views from both bedrooms and the living area - great design. Loved being right on the beach and easy walk to surf clubs and shops etc. The unit was large and clean, with all your basic necessities, but living room furniture is getting tired, and curtains are in need of replacement. We only stayed a weekend,... More

Thanks for your feedback. Yes our units are of a good size and many clients are pleasantly surprised how big the 3 bedroom units are with the upstairs parents retreat. The lounge and curtains are being replaced in the unit where you stayed as the owner has been here from Americia and inspected the unit herself and finalised arrangements. Should... More

We stayed 7 nights in a beach front unit with fantastic views and modest furnishings. The unit was very clean and well stocked to ensure a great start to a long awaited break. The uninterrupted beachfont location was simply fantastic to watch the sun rise and the early surfers trying to catch a wave. Six steps and we were on... More

Hello Liam S, Thanks for your review of our complex. It appears you will return and judging by your glowing comments on providing you an outstanding holiday experience you may return soon. The good news is both of the first floor Beach Front units are being renovated within the next month with a spend of over $30,000.each. So next time... More

We've been coming to the Sanctuary beach resort for 16 years and have always loved it. It's a lovely location and very special to be able to walk straight out onto such a lovely beach. However this time we were very dissappointed and won't be going back. One of the main attractions for us has always been the heated pool... More

Thanks Catherine Z 65, Your comments were well worded and yes we did have a fault with the Wi Fi and yes it did take out the heating system of the pool. The wiring was the responsibility of the Wi Fi provider not ours. We did get an Electrican to re wire the Circuit board which heats the pool and... More

We stayed here as a gift from a friend. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do - go for morning walks along the beach, sample the coffees at the various cafes, enjoy breakfasts at Currumbin Vikings Surf Club and walk/drive nearby for dinners. The patrolled beach is also good for swimming if you like a bracing dip!... More

With four children on holiday the heated pool was the main attraction for this resort. The heated pool was freezing cold and the manager at first said it was working, then he said he would look into it, then he said he was very busy, and then as we were leaving he once again said he would look into it....

I am sorry I did not clearly communicate to you the problem we were experiencing with the pool heating as it occured. The heated pool was working on the day of your arrival and it was fixed the day of departure. Sadly we needed an Electrican to re wire the Circut Board after the Wi Fi shorted the Switch Board...
