Lovely, secure, spacious apartments. Beach is a very short walk with life guards not too far away. Pool is huge with lots of room for all. It was relatively quiet as we were here in the off season. We had a pool facing apartment and the squeals from the children relatively early in the morning made it hard to sleep...

Relax and feel the serenity in the beautiful lagoon pools and spas, as I have stayed before I am treated like royalty and the staff here love what they do. People can be a little noisy at times but it is a large swimming hotel

Excellent value. Very relaxing for family. Poolside access off the 3brm Villa terrace is heavenly. Shady, bush-side stroll to beach on modern walking/running track. Short walk to restaurants, conveniences and shops. Skate park across road. Fantastic apartment for families; stress-free not having to bundle everything up each time the kids want to swim in the pool (when you don't!) Supervise...

We love this resort. Our 5th stay and already planning our next. We had a very minor issue with the TV - it was replaced with a brand new TV the next day! The staff are fantastic - highly recommend a visit!

Stayed at Sand Dunes with the kids and grandparents. The rooms are spacious and we had pool access which was great. Highly recommend getting the villas with direct pool access. About five minutes walk to the beach and the airport is five minutes by car. Coles and shops are a couple of kms away.

Our family booked a Villa and a Beach house to stay in and had a beautiful week, accommodation was lovely and worked well for our big family. Pools were very clean and the grounds are very well maintained. Great location to the beach. We were somewhat disappointed by the way we were spoken to upon leaving the resort. It was...

We joined other family members including grandchildren and had a relaxing time at the holiday resort. The apartments were a good size and adequately furnished and fairly well supplied with all the necesary kitchen and laundry appliances. Mind you, it should not be that hard to hang a few hooks to allow the hanging of towels and other clothing in...

My family and I had two, three bedroom units (#8 and 14) with a spa on the roof of each unit. We had the beach just 500m away and a wonderful swimming pool with a heated spa, as well. If we were not walking the beach, surfing at the beach, building sandcastles with the littlies at the beach you would...

We spent 7 days with our 2 daughters, husbands and 4 small children, aged 5 down to 2 to enjoy a family holiday. I don't think we could have chosen a better location than Sand Dunes. Accommodation was perfect, well equipped, good beds, modern and comfortable. The beach was a short stroll from our units and very safe for children....
