Stayed here for a little over a week with my husband and young son. The place is locked up like Fort Knox with different keys for every entry (carpark, side door, courtyard door, Windows) but it's good to know its secure. The facilities themselves are mostly clean (mould on the venetians in our rooms - yuck) if a little outdated....

The facilities and the room we had were above average and more than comfortable. Modern and up to date kitchen and laundry. Not so the internet connection, it allows for only one connection at a time, (circa 1998 dial-up) and in a room of 4 adults that is not acceptable. The open hostility of the manager becomes manifestly apparent if...

Sandcastles is a comfortable and clean establishment that provides a home away from home. Very good value that includes a heated pool and spa. Access to the beach is easy and restaurants are very close.

We stayed here for a girls' weekend catch up. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, which has a kitchen, laundry and a small lounge and dining area. The decor is a little outdated but it was clean and comfortable. There is no lift access so if stairs are an issue, this may not be suitable. There is a cafe...

This is an older style apartment resort but perfectly adequate. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped (kitchen, laundry, stereo, microwave). The beds were comfortable, the complex was quiet and well maintained. Excellent location. Great value.

This is a slightly dated unit but it is well set out and has safety parking under the units. Has all you need for a kitchen and a laundry. Only one toilet but the beds are comfortable and there is plenty of family room. The pool is heated and we swam even though the weather was not the best. Across...

I was travelling with my Mother from Brisbane to Forster and we decided to stay one night in Coffs. We drove down to Park Beach and selected Sandcastles Holiday Units to overnight.

Thank you for your review Robert, we are pleased you selected Sandcastles and then enjoyed your stay with us on Wednesday night.
