The unit we had was not very clean, balcony was filthy, fridge leaking water , no insect screens on doors & windows, which was unsafe if you had small children.The unit needs refurbishing big time! The pool was nice, had sand on the edge but the kids weren't allowed to dig in it, which I thought was strange .

It had a nice layout with a good sized lounge/dining room and great balcony with a... More

Recent stay at Diamond Sands left all our family very happy, the resort has just been completely painted with fresh and modern new colours. The lagoon pool was continuously heated to 28 degrees and was brilliant for our kids. An affordable place to stay for the complete family. Beautiful landscaped gardens and pool area.

Stayed here for a week and was pleased with what it had to offer. The apartment was very nice but could have been a little cleaner but still was happy. The pool was great and spent most morning and nights swimming only problem with the pool was the sand paper like bottom that would catch you off guard if you... More

Stayed 3 nights at Diamond Sands and had a lovely time. The pool is fantastic and the apartment we stayed in was clean and well maintained. The location couldn't be better, bus stop out front to the theme parks and Pacific Fair/Broadbeach and the beach across the road. The staff in the office (Peter and Don) were amazing and gave...

Loved the pool! Great for my 3 year old who loved the toddler pool and loved playing in the sand (never seen a pool like it!) while my 6 year old swam close by. Loved it until I was smacked in the back of my head by a stray rugby ball by people disobeying the 'no ball games' rule. Also... More
