“Currumbin Sands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

We loved our week at Currumbin Sands and we will be back. Apartment had all we needed, location was amazing, walk to beach, café, local shops. Helpful staff and simply amazing facilities that were clean and working. Such a relaxing week. Going back to work will be so hard. Loved watching the kids become water babies, beautiful swimmable salt water pools.

Room Tip: Pool view room in which we stayed was great, hardly any traffic noise or noise from airport.

Thank you, Maree E for your great review. Yes, we think the location is amazing with the beach and Estuary at our door step. We hope you settled into work after such a relaxing holiday. The complex maybe on the highway and near the flight path but it is amazing how little noise you hear from them. Look forward to the water babies on your next visit.

My partner and I recently stayed 4 nights in room 58, a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment. The air conditioner was broken and the house keeping was half done. We found long hairs in the both bathrooms, on the floor, sink and shower. There was also a rotten smelling drain in the main en suite. The windows were dirty and the screen door overlooking the pool in particular, was filthy. The oven didn't work, only the grill and we found a dead gecko in the dining room window sill that had been there for days.
In fairness, the rotten drain was fixed quite quickly but no apology was every made about it or the broken air conditioner and no discount was offered either.
I wrote an email to complain about the standard of the room and received the most rude, condescending and arrogantly toned reply I could have ever imagined. They even claimed a plumber and 2 workers could not smell any odour from the drain and no blockage or problem was found. If there was no work undertaken, then why was there no smell after the plumber left? I know they did some work because they left a screwdriver behind which I returned to reception. I also asked the maintenance man to have a look when he came to look at the air conditioner. He also said he could smell something. The smell was pungent and gave me a head ache all night. I didn't appreciate their lack of concern and the implication that I am a liar.
It is a good, quite location.
I don't recommend this place to couples, there are too many kids. The place is also too highly priced and dirty.

Room Tip: Only the lounge rooms are air conditioned, so don't let any phone operator lie to you.

Varin J. what a shame you felt the need to bag the complex and accuse the staff of lying. The plumber, maintenane people, receptionists and cleaners all tried to accommodate you and your partner. All responding immediately to your concerns without finding any issues. The complex is a family resort and we would never try and discourage children from enjoying themselves. The request for another 7 night stay from the Australian Day weekend was unable to be provided due to the complex being booked out.

We (family of 5) have taken a holiday at Currumbin Sands on the Beach, Palm Beach, Gold Coast, QLD about 4 times over the past 3 years. The resort has three pools and 2 spas, the beach is over the dune in front of the resort, the estuary and flat water (fishing/swimming/boogie board, boat and paddle board) is to the side of the resort, with a café, a big stretch of grass for ball games and a fabulous pirate park. It has everything we have needed to keep our three boys busy. it is an easy walk to Coles and some lovely cafes down the highway. The resort has generous rooms, with plenty of room for us to spread out. we cannot say enough about the resort, the management of the resort or the location. All are great.

Room Tip: rooms on the north side are closer to the quiet hidden pool...

Amazing position. To be able to walk to two different beaches for a swim or a fish or relaxing quiet time was a treat. Everything you need. Friendly team and a great home away from home holiday accommodation. If your kids love aeroplanes like mine do then it's also exciting. The breezes through our apartment were to die for.

Hi Amanda F. It sounds as if you and your family enjoyed all the aspects that Currumbin Sands has to offer - the surf & calm water, the friendly staff, the aeroplanes and the great sea breeze through your apartment. We thank you and please come again.

We rented a 1 bedroom apartment close to the 'cold' pool which was ideally situated and quiet. Even though we didn't have a beach view, our balcony overlooked the pool area, which was secluded and surrounded by the gorgeous palm trees. Our apartment was very clean, with everything that opened and shut. The staff were all very courteous and helpful and the facilities were awesome! Thanks for a great holiday, we will be back!!

We had a two bed apartment overlooking the beach, it was clean and had everything you need for a few days stay. For those who enjoy an early morning walk there is a choice of the beach, the creek, or a reserve. The complex is well situated for most things and I am certain we will use this one again.

Hi Sheila, the walks are certainly spectacular. On my walk this week, I was followed by a dolphin swimming in the creek and that wasn't the first time I have been visited by these beautiful creatures.
