Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The apartment I stayed in was amazing! The views were stunning, the apartment was very comfortable and clean, had secure parking and a lift for ease of getting luggage in and out. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable with ample pillows and linen. The only thing that could improve it would be a small coffee machine in the kitchen. Location excellent.

Fantastic spot that we keep coming back to! close to everything, easy to park in the undercover lockable garages and move your gear into a lovely unit with amazing views. Now whilst the guys managing Sandcastles are great, Lisa described Jenni as an absolute delight.

Having stayed in numerous places in Port Macquarie over many years, we are so happy to have discovered Sandcastle Apartments. We were warmly welcomed by Danny, who gave us a tour of the building and pointed out the essential things we needed to know about, and offered help with advice regarding local attractions if we needed it. The apartment (207) was clean, spacious and had lovely views of the beach and ocean; also it is just across the road from the beach. A lovely restaurant, The Stunned Mullet, is on the street front, it would have to be one of the best in Port. We thought it good value for money and will return.

We (two couples) stayed at Sandcastles Apartments between 10 and 17 February 2024. As usual the entire experience (booking to departure) was excellent. This time we dealt with Jenni and Baz. Wonderful people who happily provide guidance regarding places to visit, eat, fish, swim etc. and explained the facilities very patiently. The apartment itself provided excellent views of the beach and was immaculately maintained. We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next stay at Sandcastles.

A wonderful surprise - such a large comfortable apartment with the sea views that are advertised. Warm welcome from Jenni and exceptional orientation of all the information you need to navigate parking, lifts, appliances in the apartment etc. A real treat for our short stay in Port maquarie.

Without a doubt, these units are in the best location in Port Macquarie. Town Beach was directly opposite the apartments entrance. There was also a great kiosk on the beach to grab your morning coffee. If you want to explore other beaches, Oxley Beach is only a short walk away as well. The unit was awesome too. It was huge and had amazing views. Will definitely be returning.

We love staying at Sandcastles Port Macquarie, so much so that over the past several years we have stayed at least once every year. It is a large apartment complex directly across from Town Beach, and is a mixture of permanent residences and holiday accommodation. The complex is well managed by Danny, Jenny and Barry who are all very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We have stayed in a few apartments across the complex and while the furnishings may differ they have all been very comfortable and clean, nicely presented and all have had that amazing view across the water. With a lift that takes you directly to your individual apartment, unloading your luggage is easy and you feel very secure. And you can't go past the views that hit you in the face the moment you walk into the apartment - sensational! Highly recommended.

We have nothing but good this to say about Sandcastles. From the moment we stepped in the door everyone was so welcoming. They went out of their way to explain where everything was and how it all worked. Beautiful ocean view to wake up to. The bowling club is literally out the back door although we opted for some fresh seafood in town.

Probably the best apartment my wife and I have ever stayed in. The unit is very modern and large in size, king size bed with excellent beach views and in room spa bath. Your only minutes away from some of the best waterside restaurants and shopping center. Would highly recommend for weekend getaway. Staff are very friendly and understanding. 5 stars from us. Peter.

Although my wife and I have visited Port Macquarie many times our most recent visit in November 2023 was the first time we stayed at Sandcastle Apartments. We enjoyed our recent stay so much that we intend booking another holiday at Sandcastle Apartments next February. Our apartment was spacious, well furnished and appointed, clean and close to all amenities. Rarely did we need to use our car which was safely parked in a lockable underground security double garage. The apartment had three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two lounges, large kitchen and dining areas and a spacious balcony (where we enjoyed the occasional glass of wine while taking in the breathtaking view). The on-site management team were helpful and friendly. Can’t wait to stay at Sandcastles again next February.
