Stayed from Sunday 10th March until Friday 15th March. Our apartment was on the 1st floor which was preferable with three little ones (aged 2, 3 & 4). Being on the 1st floor and facing the ocean this also gave us direct access to the beach (via the rear gate) and the pathway to the calm water and park. Direct access was via stairs from our very spacious back patio/balcony, again ideal and preferable with a swag of littlies.
The rooms were clean and tidy and presentable and functional. The kitchen was roomy and pleasant and well equipped. The apartment as a whole was pleasant, appealing and very comfortable.
Staff all seemed genuinely friendly and happy to chat and help with all inquiries.
As a facility we were totally satisfied and pleased with our choice of accommodation, our only inconvenience was that there is no shop within a short walking distance for conveniences like milk, bread or basic groceries. Likewise; there are no take away food places within a short walking distance. This just meant a brief car trip each time we wanted/needed basic items or take away meals though. The Dune cafe is close but is only open for breaky and lunch and is not a "go to" place for bread and milk etc of course. It was very nice but the menu was a bit ..... dare I say "pretentious" for my own personal, humble and basic liking.
Our three boys loved the pools and I must say they are kept and maintained to an immaculate standard as are the gardens and lawns. The Pirate park playground right next door was an enormous hit too, in fact our eldest preferred being there rather than the beach (sadly).
Overall we were very pleased with Currumbin Sands, its staff, facilities and location and we had a wonderful 5 night stay.
