The affordable Arlia Sands Apartments are conveniently located near beach, shops and easy walking distance to numerous restaurants in Hervey Bay. Clean and well managed with friendly help and advice on booking those all important Whale Watching and Fraser Island Tours. On the downside this is an older 1960's style two level motel. Not all apartments have had updates and... More

Sue & Gary are excellent hosts, the resort is well kept & the apartments are very well fitted out. Would definitely recommend this place to stay. Walking distance to beach & shops. Sue will also book any tours that you want to do.

Easy to book, staff very friendly and accommodating even greeted by a friendly family dog. Very clean and tidy. Probably only issue I can recommend improvement on is internet access. Many places these days offer free internet this one has a charge.

This apartment accommodation needs a serious make over. The bathrooms and kitchens are both tired and run down., however the rooms are kept clean by the staff. The outside of the apartments are clean, tidy and well kept.. Although new pool furniture would be a bonus. If you are looking for modern accommodation then this is not the place for... More

Spent two night in a 2 bed apartment. Nothing flashy, but comfortable enough, and close to the beach. Main man in reception was very helpful and looked after us including booking a whale watching trip at short notice and get a little saving for us. Happily stay there again if in the area.

This place was clean, huge and the owners were lovely. Only stayed one night but it was quiet and comfortable. Overall good value for Hervey Bay. Not sure about why they (and every other place I've stayed in Hervey Bay) threatens to charge if you don't clean your dishes. But hey. This place is not alone, so it must just... More
