Just returned from a family holiday at Diamond Sands. I have read all of the reviews and had a slight query over the place, but some of the reviews do not seem to bear much co-relation to the resort, and you wonder if it is the same resort they are reviewing or perhaps a competitor playing a nasty trick. We stayed in apartment 16 which didnt have a pool view, but this was a major benefit for us as we have 2 young children and this apartment is particularly quiet. Some reviews mention that you only get a starter pack of soap, laundry & dish washing detergents and loo paper on arrival, but this is common at all the apartment complexes on the Gold Coast and the comments seem to reflect the inexperience of the reviewer rather than a fault of the apartment complex. We found the resort to be great value for money, our apartment to be modern and clean, and the reception staff to be friendly and pleasant. The buses to the theme parks leave 15o metres north, and it is a good idea to buy Go Transport cards - cost is 35% cheaper than paying cash. We spent many lazy days just sitting around the great lagoon pool, with our kids in the pool at 7.30 in the morning, and wanting to stay all day. We had a couple of barbeques and had friends over who were staying at Turtle Beach. They wished they had booked in with us. We will defintiely be returning here for our family holidays - we loved the place
