Just spent three nights in unit 6 and was very disappointed with the amenities and state of repair of this unit. A four star resort should not have patches on the walls and doors, kitchenware that looks like it came from a thrift shop. Half of it was junky plastic and the other plates were a mismatch from probably three or four sets. Same for the cutlery, none of it matched and for a place that is set to hold 6 people there were only two steak knives. Fry pans were disgusting so didn't even use them. The only new furniture in the unit are the two couches in the living room and the patio furniture which conveniently is what is shown in the photo's. Decided to go for the river view room but the river was obscured by heavy trees in the front of the building and then there was the noise from the street. Steady all day and into the night. They pick up the rubbish before 6:00 a.m. so don't plan on sleeping later than that The grounds were nice, decent bbq to use at the pool area and the pools were clean. I would not recommend staying at Sandy Beach Resort unless you get an upgraded unit (if there are any) and face the courtyard not the street. Non smoking in the rooms but allowed on the patios so smoke still comes in through the patio doors even though they were close

Room tip: Face the courtyard and demand an upgraded apartment

We have just had a really beautiful week at this resort.The privacy and cleanliness of our unit (no.8) was first class!This is a very well run resort and the pride the managers put in is obvious.Everything we needed was available.A multitude of restaurants,takeaways and shops are very close,also a supermarket and Dan Murphy’s!While this is a family resort at no time did we feel it was too noisy,even for us oldies.Could not hope for better and will be back.

Well, I did come back as Sandy Beach Resort is just so ideal for a family group. The accommodation is spacious and very well equipped and the facilities are great. We made great use of the pools, the spa and the bbq. Another reason I come back is that you just can't go past this location for a holiday. In just a few minutes you're on the river front, and close to everything. There is something for all ages, young and old. I will be back:)

The room was loverly however it was spoilt by a number of things.

1. Noise - the rooms are so close to the pool you can hear even conversations though your shut doors. If you don’t mind listening to other people’s conversations and screaming children from dawn until 9pm, you will love it. However, if you plan on getting an early night because you have a trip to Fraser Island with a 6am pickup forget it.

2. More noise - did I mention that the hotel next door also has a pool with even more noise. So if you think you could move to another room in the unit to try and escape forget it.

3. WiFi - you get 500mb per Unit per day. So if you have 6 people in your unit like ours, it works out at less than 100mb per person! They will of course sell you some more but when you advertise “Free WiFi” it should be free, or at least advertise it VERY LIMITED free WiFi.

4. There are canoes you can use. However, you can only use them between 8am-10am at the weekend. CRAZY! (The owners don’t trust their guests obviously...or don’t want to pay for a reception at the weekend which is where you get them from).

5. We only saw the owners / managers the once when we checked in ... what a grumpy lot they seem. You only get one chance to make a first impression, we certainly didn’t get a warm welcome.

6. The RULES - there is a rule book in the unit and our stay felt like we were in a prison not on holiday....oh and if you don’t read the rule book there are notices they have made and put up around the place reminding you (eg. $66 fine for not tidying and emptying the bins)

7. Safety - our hair drier had a sticker saying it had last been checked in 2012 (so by my calculation it’s 6 yrs over due)

8. Safety (personal items) - there is a safe in the room. However, in less than 30 seconds I found the over ride key. This is hidden in the worst place possible - under the table next to the safe! Come on guys ! This is really poor and stupid. You never leave an over ride key in the same place and next to a safe.

Would not stay here again and I would not recommend it.
