“Great family experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

The complex is ideal for a family relaxing holiday. The main pool is ideal for those days you need to just veg out. The surrounds also offer the best of surf beaches or quiet lagoons. Fishing, surfing, swimming, or just quiet walks along the beach. The units are comfortable and convenient to all activities. There is a great Dune restaurant 100 metres for breakfast or lunch and they serve the best chips for hungry grandkids. Recommended for an all round relaxing family holiday. Will definitely come again.

Grandparents with two grand children.

My 2 daughters 6 and 8 had a magnificent stay for 6 nights. Our back yard was the Oceon, The Lagoon, The Pirate playground and a beautiful Cafe. That was when you turned right from the front gate. Turn left you have a strip of Golden sand and rolling waves, witha variety of eateries around. You would be very hard to please if this destination does not please. Especially if you love dogs. The worlds best dog beach is also there. The accommodation was fantastic and the staff very helpful.. We will go again.

We checked into Currumbin Sands into a ground level 2 bedroom apartment a couple of days prior to New Years eve and I have to say it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. My mother requires a walking aid and the location and amentities were excellent and suited her very well. My two boys (aged under 8) were both excited by the swimming pools, the fabulour playground next door and the fantastic lagoon and beach which happened to be a stones throw away.

Would highly recommend this location and facility to anyone looking at holidaying in beautiful Gold Coast region. The staff were extremely helpful to our needs and made this stay a very memorable experience.

Thank you for the memories.

Dear Kiehlko, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments with Trip Advisor. We are very happy to hear that our resort and it's facilities and location was enjoyed by 3 generations of your family. Tends to make holidaying very pleasant!! The adjacent safe lagoon for swimming and paddling, pirate park playground and the cafe are a winning combination with everyone who stays. As well as having the surf beach out the front we think we cater for everyone.
We hope to see you all back at Currumbin Sands for your next holiday. Denise

This place has it all, pool, spa, patrolled surf beach on its door step, self-contained apartments, BBQ, great undercover parking, Foxtel and Air Con.

We were overjoyed at having found such a wonderful holiday destination after having stayed at several quite mediocre holiday rentals over the years.

We met loads of great people in the pool, and down at the estuary while fishing, and really enjoyed our time there.

What a pity the staff don't match their surrounds!

We have never been spoken to so rudely, and in such an accusatory manner in all our lives.

BEWARE.

Room Tip: Check the ceiling fans as soon as you arrive, as ours are noisy and we couldn't sleep.

First let me start off saying the rooms are pretty good and the location and views are very nice as well. Surf was very dumpy and allarge pull in the water but that's the way of the season.

Some let downs are that it's located right next to a dog beach. So if you have dogs I'm sure it's great, but otherwise you have to walk through sand that is oddly wet to get to the beach. Secondly the place is like fort knocks. You need to swipe to get in and out of the perimeter fence, then swipe in and out of the pool fence, then key to the staircase then key to your room. I love security but the pool fence is just overboard and an inconvenience.
The cleaners were at our door at 830 trying to kick us at upon exit which I found very rude. They didn't even enquire if we were nearly out nicely.

I wouldn't stay here again but at the same time it was a pleasant stay with a few minor annoyances. So if you haven't been to this area before and don't mind any if the things I listed above then it may be worth a look for you.

Dear Trentgibbo, Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. We are sorry that you found our complex too secure but we make no apologies for this with small children and swimming pools, the majority of our guests stay here because of our top security. There is a dog park to the south of Currumbin Sands but immediately in front and to the north there is 3km's of beach that is a non dog area. With regards to our cleaners we have discussed your concerns with them and they assure us this isn't there usual practice, so we are very sorry this was unpleasant for you. Unfortunately at such a busy time of the year guests are arriving as soon as guests are leaving and it can be a very stressful time for cleaners with time constraints. Once again we apologise for this. We would like to think you would come back for a vist at some time in the future. Denise

Brilliant location... Ian, Denise and Diane are all very helpful and efficient... Love being that close to the beach. The pool area is fantastic, it was great having a normal pool, warm pool and hot pool... All 3 units we've stayed in over the past few years have been great, beautiful views to the beach and park and great for people watching. The only criticism would be not having air conditioning in the master bedroom. All in all a fantastic place to stay, great for the family and we will definitely be returning!

We (me, my wife and our twin 8yo sons) stayed 2 weeks in January and again for 5 days in November.
location! location! location! Within a few minutes walk of the surf beach, the lagoon/river mouth, a parkwith a great cafe, bus stops more or less at the gate and convenient and connected to all you want to see on the Coast, there isn't a better spot to stay. The pools are fantasic, the BBQ areas clean and working, the grounds well presented and maintained, the units spacious, functional and private (if you get one with a view that's even better).
The staff and management are so efficient and helpful and friendly, even gave (not sold!) my son a hat when he lost his. A very family friendly environment with a great holiday atmosphere, we will stay again.
