I have stayed at the sandcastles many times now, one of the best places to stay in Agnes Waters. If staying here make sure you dine at the restaurant one night, well worth it you won't be disappointed

Really enjoyable stay, great facilities and very well furnished. Staff were all very friendly and the complex is very modern and well maintained. Only one thing was our apartment didn't have aircon, which on some days would have been good. Great area to visit, certainly not been over developed which was a bonus.

Thank you Adrian. We do have great staff who are freindly and do teriffic job of maintaining the pools and grounds and keeping the apartments clean and tidy. The Beach Homes are designed to make the most of the seabeezes. Most guests find that that, and the ceiling fans is usually enough to keep cool. In fact we find blankets...

We chose Sandcastles because it looked modern and was a walk to town, a walk to the beach etc. We weren't disappointed. The walk to the beach is more a stroll. And it is only 250m along the sand to the patrolled area. The beach is long and perfect for morning and evening walks. The surf was wonderful, the water...

So close to the beach , just get up and head to the beach ! Houses like a villa in Bali and get a great sea breeze coming through at night ! Pool is enormous with a nice spa to go with it ! Pretty sure I'll be back 👍

The property is well located near the beach and within walking distance of the shops, has a nice pool and restaurant. But sadly the room is really basic with a tiled floor and probably the smallest fridge I've ever seen. Hardly good value at $185 for the night. Also had to ask for toilet paper.

Thanks for your review Robert. The budget studio you booked online is quite basic, but clean and comfortable. Without kitchen facilities there is no need for a bigger fridge. In Peak Season that is the rate. If you prefer to travel at low season the rate would be much less. There was an oversight in that the housekeepers didn't fit...

An older resort in a booming town with lots of shiny new competition. My studio room was clean , partly refurbished, but showing it's age. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the on site restaurant was very pleasant ; it had a nice atmosphere and delivered good food and service .

Thanks for the review. We hope to have some of our studios and villas updated this year. As you say, although they are a bit dated but clan and comfortable. Glad to hear of another good experience in our Green Turtlke Cafe & Bar.

Want a break away, then this is the place! We spent the night in a two bedroom apartment with private plunge pool. Was one of the nicest experiences from start to finish. We arrived early so thought we'd ring to see about the possibility of an early check in, they were very accomodating allowing us to check in whenever we...

Sandcastles Agnes Water is ideally located in the centre of town. There is a great choice of accommodation ranging from one to three bedrooms and self-catering units. There is a good restaurant on site called the Green Turtle with a good selection of food and they have live music nights. There is a good beach right on the doorstep plus...

My wife and I booked online using Wotif and paid $115 for the one night in a studio apartment, 34a. After paying for the room we were notified by email of the exact whereabouts of the room: above the restaurant which took 3 flights of stairs to get there and prone to excess noise.

Thank you for your review. We will address the issues you raised. The water on the stairs turned out to be a leaking hose in the kitchen of one of the apartments. We had it fixed in a short time and the stairs were dried up. Fortunately this doesn't happen often but ofcourse internal stair and floors anywhere are slippery...
