I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at sand castles. The complex is small, well maintained, and a very relaxed vibe with it. My accomadation was average-dated alittle but totally clean. I believe there is more updated accomadation available.I would return. Thank you to the owners, ye should be proud.

Great location close to the beach and stores/amenities of the small town. It was extremely clean and linens and towels were exceptionally white. The staff (although I mostly met only security guards) were super friendly. If you're looking for luxury this is not the place, but for travelers who care more about experience, it's perfect.

I would recommend Sand Castles. Close to beach, park, walking paths. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and surf clubs. Management are helpful and whole complex is extremely clean and well maintained. Great value, secure parking, all amenities. Close to bird sanctuary so bird visit regularly. Beach or park views. Excellent!

I'll start with the positives: The carpark was very close to our unit. The pool was clean and the area was also clean and tidy. It is only a 4 minute walk to the beautiful Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. It is just one minute walk to the beautiful beach. Negatives: Smoking is allowed in the building and our neighbours smoked on...

I spent by birthday weekend at the sandcastle. Felt like home. We had a great stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The cherry on top to our stay has to be the complimentary Champaign. Will definitely come back again. Thank you Vivian & Brian

We absolutely loved it at Sandcastles. The location is beautiful and quiet compared to other parts of the coast. Sandcastles is kept clean and tidy can not fault it. Kids loved the pool and spa. Rooms have everything you need its a home away from home. Loved the visits from the lorikeets too. Will definitely be back

This is an absolutely wonderful location, having the beach right there is so good with children and lovely to walk first thing in the morning. The pool is very clean and warm and wonderful for adults and children. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Stayed Jan 14 and was a big disappointment. At time of booking, inquire what your inclusions are. Views can be Ocean or Pool/Concrete Walls.... Not mentioned at time of booking about the views unless asked. Apartment 6 is old and tired. Kitchen floor and carpets dirty. No AC and there are old fans that just don't want to go faster....
