We are glad you enjoyed our resort. The rooms right on the swimming pool do make it easy with a family. It is very handy have the beach so close.

Really loved the lagoon pools, the beach on our doorstep and eating all our meals on the balcony just because. Such a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of the world.

Clean, comfortable and containing what we required

Pros: Compact, but still having the room & amenities that we required. Good pool and security within gated complex. Close to the beach and most amenities.
Cons: Tiles sightly slippery if you had been in the pool - need to dry-off or wear something on feet to prevent slipping in units.
Location: Beaches and appropriate amenities/shopping nearby. Reasonable location to travel to other places from. Close to airport and well situated.
Neat and tidy, reasonably spacious yet compact (bathrooms), whilst having enough room to cater for our needs, especially having 2 bathrooms. Good to have fully self-contained kitchen and balcony. Nice pool. Enjoyed being on top floor even though you had to climb stairs. Security provided within gated complex. Located close to airport and other places we needed to travel to. Comfortable beds. Reasonable close to other amenities such as shopping etc...Good to have WiFi included. Contained everything that would be needed for short or longer stays (i.e. laundry, vacuum, brooms, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, towels for pool etc...)

Close to town, close to beach, awesome pool

Pros: Location and the fantastic reception staff
Cons: The compendium and signage around the rooms are a bit authoritarian. It could be written in a more friendly tone.
Location: Beach, Airport, Shops
Great facilities. Huge rooms with Air Con, Pool and a short walk to the shops and beach. Has wifi, foxtel, washer and dryer as well as dishwasher. A great place to stay on the sunny coast. 5 mins from the Airport and central to all the main areas of the Sunshine Coast

Awesome

My partner booked this resort for my birthday and I can honestly say it was the nicest holiday accommodation i’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Very clean, family friendly and only a few minutes walk to the beach. I would absolutely recommend Sand Dunes Resort to anyone wanting a quiet, high quality vacationing experience.
