If you want to be away from the crowds and noise of Surfer's Paradise this is a good choice, easy to reach along The Gold Coast Highway. We arrived after 3pm on a Saturday, the reception was closed but a phone call and instructions in the safe made for easy access to our Town House. We were very pleased to...

When booking an apartment I notice reviews about the mould problem. When questioning the cleanliness of the apartment I was to stay in noting I was travelling with people who suffer from allergies the manager claimed that due to the being in sub tropical environment mould is always going to be present. No where else on the Gold Coast that...

My husband and I stayed at Diamond Sands for 11 nights during late October/early November 2013 in a ground floor one-bedroom apartment (actually a 2 room apartment but with one room locked off, unit 18). The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious, homely and well-provisioned and the pool and BBQ area definitely exceeded my expectations. The pool is a real tropical...

We have travelled a lot throughout New Zealand and like the style of hiring apartments and looking after yourself. The staff were reasonably friendly but we didn't really need them during our 10 night stay. The tariff was reasonable (just) given the standard of the rooms and the level of wear. As a price point this resort is lower end...

We had a back room and it was very quiet. The downside was that we had to climb up several stairs as we were on the third level. Car parks were tiny and hard to get in and out when the parks were fill. The rooms were tidy and comfortable. The pool was really good, the downside is that the...

We stayed here in a 2 Bdm apartment. The first thing that struck us was how dark and dingy it was. Then the dirt!! Every surface was sticky with visible dirt and smears. Dust was thick - especially on the lamp base and dated glass table that had pretty pictures drawn in the dust from the last guests. A bacteriologist...

Diamond Sands Resort was the best vacation we could dream about because it has been our first family vacation and also the first time in Australia. The whole pool and beach area was clean and well maintained. We were looked after during our whole holiday there and we did not do much but relax relax relax. The beach was beautiful...

Staying in a 3 bedroom apt, everything is nice but beds are worn and mouldy shower. Furniture is lovely and the pool looks clean and big. Location is ok with many shops close by. Garages are quite small. Seems to be quiet.
