5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We stayed in the #8 cottage one year. The view overlooking west lake across the length of the dunes was breathtaking. The sunsets were fabulous and the owner was very friendly and tried to meet our every request. Great family place - the kids love it.
Next visit we stayed in the century home. It is a huge and beautifully century country home. It was at the top of the resort but we easily walked to the beach in a minute.
Just love the area, the atmosphere, the service, the cleanliness and the warm family oriented environment.
Oh and be prepared to recycle as they are a green resort and very concerned about protecting the environment!

Room Tip: There are two parks so pick the dunes park - it backs on to the provincial park and you can walk rig...

Throughly enjoyed the Sandbanks Beach Resort, essentially it's a few trailers for rent in the best part of a family RV park (by the water). You can't be closer to the Sandbanks beach, the cottages/trailers are very clean and the owners are great.

The main downside we found is that for all the comforts like satellite TV, gas stove, BBQ, playground, coffee machine...the beds are ancient and hard as a rock. Don't get me wrong SO much better than camping but sleeping was not the most enjoyable part of our stay. If the owners were to upgrade the beds this place would REALLY hit the spot and be a solid value.

Room Tip: The Sunlake and 40D are the best and make your trip so much more walkable to Sandbanks. If you'...

We spent 4 nights at Sandbanks Beach Resort in one of the trailers. They are clean and comfortable. Bed was good. Its a great place for kids. We parked our car at the trailer and rode our bikes everywhere, to the beach, to the deli, to the restaurant, no driving required. It a ten minute walk to the Dunes beach and probably half an hour to Sandbanks Beach. With a bike you are 15 minutes from all the beaches. Check out the deli near the Park entrance, great coffee, pies and other goodies.

Also had three good days of kiteboarding on Sandbanks Beach with wind up to 25kn. The locals say this is unusual for the summer. Kiting is not allowed at the Dunes beach or at Outlet beach. You can kite West Lake from the Dunes if you hike far enough away from the beach area that the Beach Patrol doesn't want to walk out and hassle you. Just stay well away from all the swimmers and other beach goers.

Room Tip: ask for a newer trailer
