The Sands is the perfect place to bring a family. The two pools and tennis courts as to its appeal. It is its close proximity to Pippi beach that wins it for us. The perfect place for an evening or sunrise walk.

We were in Villa 51, which was a gorgeous 2 bedroom. There was only 1 bathroom but there was a second toilet. The villa overlooked the tennis court and we loved the resident magpies in the tree near our balcony. The pool area is beautiful and we loved the clean spacious bbq area. The only downfall is there is no...

Very happy with the room. Air conditioning in main room but not in bedrooms which was the only negative. Pool was clean, location is perfect . If anyone is looking for a hotel in Yamba then this might not be a pick for you as there are permanent tenants in this resort and lots of children. Really great place for...

We've been visiting Yamba for over 10 years and always The Sands in recent years. Always been happy but the new management team have raised the game to new heights. Simply couldn't do enough to help make our stay better (don't want to give the details as don't want to create expectations beyond the advertised inclusions). The facilities are beautiful...

A superb location for 3 couples to enjoy a weeks beachside holiday. Penthouse unit gave us all plenty of space to be together and then have our own space. It had sea views and a beautiful breeze although the air con would be appreciated in some weather. It was well furnished and very comfortable. A deep spa bath was luxurious....

My family of 5 stayed 8 nights in a 3 bedroom ocean view apartment last month and it was the best family holiday we've had. We had no previous experience of Yamba and Yamba alone was a fabulous surprise and we are planning our return. The Sands was amazing, the cleanest resort I've seen, well kept gardens and very well...
