We stayed in apartment 19, we loved it! Only stayed one night as we were there to catch up with friends who were staying as well. Pool area was great we used the BBQ and carried everything down to eat at the tables by the pool. Our apartment was in a great spot, we could walk off our balcony and...

This resort is a must to stay at. Gorgeous pool, perfect location on the Gold Coast. Management are friendly and the apartments are spacious and clean. Full kitchens and lounge to relax and enjoy after a day of fun at a theme park or the beach.

We stayed at the Diamond Sands 93 unit resort for 11 nights. Our unit was a 2 bed, 2 bathroom, second floor apartment with open plan lounge/kitchen and two balconies. The bonus was the utility room with washing machine and tumble drier. We were rarely in the room as there is so much to do with fine cafes, restaurants, shopping...

We arrived for th Christmas -New Year period. Looked tidy and comfortable however after two days with heat pump on cool we all had reactions, sneezing blood shot eyes and asthma. This subsided each day we left but sure enough overnight even from our bedding it flared up again. Stayed a week, no fresh linen or towels.. Door handles that...

We stayed in a 3bd apartment. The layout was very family friendly, the beds comfortable. The resort pool was good fun and the area was nice and quiet. Unfortunately our apartment smelt damp and mouldy. There was old food in the sink and the sink drains stunk. Some of the crockery and cutlery were dirty and ended up just washinng...

We found Diamond sands resort one of the cheapest Gold Coast options for our family of 7. The resort features a great pool and is well situated close to restaurants and Pacific Fair. Our unit which was on the ground floor had a huge outdoor area. The 7 piece outdoor setting was great although the large umbrella was badly torn....

An excellent family vacation. The lagoon pool is a beautiful family treat. Cleaned daily with plenty of room for all of every age. Despite previous comments I was up early to see staff preparing amenities for the guests to enjoy. Ok, its not the Marriott, but you dont have to pay extreme rates other hotels & resorts charge! There is...

Diamond sands is to resorts what nickelback is to music. Starting with the general lack of maintenance and upkeep including chipped paint and broken locks ( our unit was completely insecure as the back of the deadlock was missing and you could shove it open!). Then you have the "pool" which was a tepid swamp with floating debris and some...

The unit we had was not very clean, balcony was filthy, fridge leaking water , no insect screens on doors & windows, which was unsafe if you had small children.The unit needs refurbishing big time! The pool was nice, had sand on the edge but the kids weren't allowed to dig in it, which I thought was strange .

It was not easy to get accommodation for 6 adults in one unit but we were able to get one here which was great. the apartments are privately owned & managed by diamond sands so I can only review the room we had (32). It had a nice layout with a good sized lounge/dining room and great balcony with a...
