Managers Bridgette and Charlie did their best to give us our requested 'ocean view', but it was not the most outstanding view available. We looked south, over the surf club car park, towards the lighthouse and, tho' pleasant enough, we would have preferred a 'front' apartment on either the third or fourth floor. Next time we will only book if... More

It is a very simple stay per what they charged. Maybe some more effort on clean of the apartment and maybe a service for breakfast. If your are looking for a hotel to relax, forget about it. My bathroom was not cleaned during my stay and it is not too confortable to stay in the apartment. Even with a lovely... More

I had some apprehension when we arrived as the parking for check in is non-existant and it felt a bit like a motel. But the lady at the desk was great, in fact really helpful and then once you drive into the carpark the initial concerns subside. The room was great, and it even had a rooftop bbq area with... More

A 4 storey apartment block, hence, even though we booked the ocean view, the view was mainly blocked even though we were on the 3rd storey. The apartment is spartan, dated finishing, kitchen not fully equipped. It is clean and neat though. The saving grace is the service offered by Briget at the front desk is excellent. The wifi is...

Cannot fault the 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in. Stunning Views, spotlessly clean, modern, spacious and took my breath away! Been doing a road trip up the coast and this has been by far our favourite our place to stay. Helpful staff, own garbage, high security. Beautiful beautiful beautiful!! Can't wait to stay again :-)

Hi Amy, What a fantastic review and I wish we could claim it - however - you have mentioned a 2 bedroom apartment and we only have one bedroom apartments so it may be that you stayed elsewhere - If it was Sandcastles Mooloolaba - then thank you for your very kind words and review :) Kindest Regards Bridgette More

Sandcastles is the perfect place to be on the winterless Sunshine Coast. Charlie and Bridgette are friendly and absolutely amazing hosts - nothing is too much trouble. Everything is clean and well presented. Newly refurbished apartment even came with complimentary hairbrush and swim towels. We have just returned from our 3rd visit and have rebooked for next winter.
