Just the night receptionist didn't mention it when we told her... 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

On first impressions this appears to be a nice place, the grounds are well maintained (and we thanked the caretaker on our last day for the great job he does) and the pool looks like a lagoon in paradise, and was well worth the many visits we made for the week that we stayed. In room however the quality and... More

Recently had 3 nights at this resort, and probably wouldn't come back. It had a lovely beautiful pool which was lovely and warm and plenty of lounges around it. The apartment itself was good, but we were placed in the back corner of the resort with no view except peoples yards and did not feel safe at all, you could... More

This is our third visit to Diamond Sands, from the minute we booked we had a truly smooth experience. Peter and his team on the front desk couldn't have been more helpful. We had 'our' beautiful Apartment 20 (as requested) and we all had the most idyllic holiday. The apartment is getting a bit tired, but for a big happy... More

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Diamond Sands Resort. We stayed for a week and never ran out of things to do - the theme parks are not too far away, a huge shopping mall is down the road, a twilight market by the beach, and lots of beautiful drives to be had as well. Our... More
