Our family recently stayed with another family at Sandcastles. We both have young children so were looking for accommodation in a great location on the beach side of Hastings street. Sandcastle apartments were the best value for money in this category as most other accommodation on the beach side is $450 ++ even in the low season.
If you are looking at trying to compare the value of this accommodation for an equivalent you will be disappointed. $300 in Brisbane CBT will get you something very nice, 4 stars but Sandcastles is more your average run of the mill apartment. It is in a great location which is what justifies the price.
Before booking we were very concerned about staying here because of the negative reviews. We did not experience any of the negatives comments such as poor cleanliness etc at all. We stayed in 2 bedroom apartments on the road side of the complex which was a little noisy on Saturday night but very clean with modern kitchens and spacious lounge area. The verandahs look into the trees on one of the walks which is pleasant. Furniture is relatively modern. The bathrooms are a little older than the rest of the apartment but still very clean.
The apartment has a great pool area which opens onto the esplanade. The BBQ area is great and pool is heated. This was ideal with young children as we could just walk down to the beach each morning and have dinner in the BBQ area.
Next time we would probably rebook or look at staying on the other side of Hastings street as it would be just as easy to walk across the road each day to the beach for a little cheaper rate. At time of booking Sandcastles offered just as good price as the other options on the shop side of Hastings street.
