We had the 2 bedroom unit ground floor which was a bit gloomy. The windows in the bedrooms haven't be washed for months and couldn't see out of them. Lights missing in the kitchen and light not working in the 2nd bedroom. The beds were great. The oven dish was dirty. There was no DVD Player and no bedside clock... More

We have just stayed at Sandcastles resort over the Easter Long Weekend and had a fabulous stay. The resort is literally right on the beach, The unit was clean and spacious and the onsite manager was extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Will most definitely be back next year!

We had a two bedroom suite on the third (top) floor overlooking the sea. It was perfect for what we wanted and there were obvious improvements from the previous visit a couple of years earlier. Everything was very clean although there were a few little things that need fixing which didn't affect us at all really eg towel rails falling... More

Stayed at this place when it was in its prime. Has gone a long way downhill since then but new owners have taken over in the last 12 months and you can see the efforts. The rooms are really nice and the public areas need lots of love. Lots of things are happen and you can see the changes. Nice... More

Yep, back to Bargara and we have found an awesome little complex that had direct beach access, ground floor apartments and a family friendly way of life. The kids literally where in heaven with their ability to play at the beach, enjoy the private grassed area or relax inside. Everyone is buggered after our short break, but we will be... More

A sandcastles is truly a hidden gem on the Bargara beach. After getting off the cruise ship we were on, we made enquiries on the beach about the best section of the beach with good amenities. At the Polly's coffee shop, someone redirected us to the Sandcastles and we thought it would be nice to checkout the place. Once there,... More

This is old school holiday apartments and is such a lovely spot. The rooms are well appointed and the location has direct access to the beach. The complex is older it is relaxing, quiet and just great. If you are a snob who want all the bells and whistles this is not for you. If you want good old fashioned... More
