“Our favourite Gold Coast destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Our family has been staying in various apartments at Sandcastles for many years and it has become our favourite Gold Coast holiday spot. The apartments are always well maintained and the location is so handy to everything one could need. It has one of the best pool areas of any apartment complexes I've ever visited and the access to the beach is so easy and convenient with no roads to cross.

Family holiday - wonderful, short stroll to Currumbin or Tugan Patrol Beaches. Kids loved the rainbow lorikeets that visited each morning. I loved the kitchen that was equipped like the one back home. Walk around to Currumbin Wildlife.

This was my first visit to Sand Castles on Currumbin Beach. I came to learn about this Beautiful location when i did makeup for a wedding.

The location of Sand Castle is excellent...walking distance to grocery stores, cafes and a 10 min slow walk to the surf club. My partner and I walked on the beach to the surf club for dinner then stroll back to Sand Castle ........Perfect......

We had a nice apartment [ocean view top floor] with a great balcony overlooking the ocean.....beach front heaven!! The apartment is very comfortable and very roomy. The shower door was a lil mouldy but i think that is from being on the beach. Other then that the apartment is kept clean.

This perfectly situated Beach front Apartment, is definately a choice of place to stay for me and visitors.

Trudy [temp manager] was very accommodating and lovely. I would definitely stay here again as my stay at Sand Castle has been wonderful..... : )

Thank you

I stayed here with my boyfriend and my best friend and her boyfriend and the four of us had an amazing time. The pool is great and the spa is amazing, the scenery is so wonderful, watching the sunset on the beach from our balcony with the lorikeets was definitely one of the best bits. The staff/managers are so wonderful and helpful and the room was perfect. Would definitely recommend and stay here again! Only downside was the occasional plane that flew past, but it wasn't that loud and they didn't fly over at night so it wasn't really a problem. Oh! And it's across the road from the wildlife sanctuary and this place is amazing, so you should definitely check it out :)

Room Tip: Try and get a room away from the road, as we stayed right next to the road and there was a bit of no...

Our holiday here was relaxing, perfect for us. We have a 3yr old and baby. The beach was beautiful not too rough. Pool and spa right outside door. And the lorrikeets baby sat our 3yr old early morning and late afternoon. Would recommend long sleeve shirt when doing this :)

Second time we have stayed. Clean and very roomy apartments. Close to beach and a delight to wake up every morning to the beautiful lorikeets. Plenty of them. Highly recommend. Just one minor problem not enough shops and a little to far

Sand Castles is a great place to stay and I would have to say the location is perfect.Located right on Currumbin beach.The accomodation was very good,spotlessly clean and spacious.We only had a short stay as we were visiting for a wedding but would not hesitate to return for a longer stay in the future.For families with young children,I should imagine that this resort would be perfect with the beach at your front door.A large park right next door and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary across the road.Numerous cafes,shopping 5minutes walk away.The resort is located in close proximity to Coolangatta Airport..A real credit to the wonderful management.
