Good location and great views but room bins were not emptied before I arrived and I was required to empty my own rubbish bins during my stay. Two towels for two people over four nights was a bit poor and apparently clean towels were held off site. Friendly staff on check in.

The toilet seat needs to be fixed, shower door needs to be fixed as the door was not closing properly hence water on floor outside of shower, considering we had a sub penthouse apartment we felt it should have been better.

I liked the ocean view i didn't like that when you walk to pool you have to walk on grass they need to put a little walkway so you don't take the grass back to your apartment

Apartment was spacious and the inside was clean however the balcony and glass was quite dirty and hard to enjoy the view when everywhere was so dirty to touch. The property manager Oliver was so lovely and helpful. Pool was nice although hard to get to with a pram and spa was a little too hot. Location was close to the entrance restaurants and kids play area but not a great beach for kids to swim.

Very sorry that you think that outside was dirty as we are cleaning x 3 daily and cant keep up! NSW is experiencing extreme bush fires and Ash and red dust is everywhere. In future please consider the fact that disasters such as these are out of our control at Sandy Cove and as management we are trying very hard to maintain the building along with safety at all times.

Fantastic location

Fantastic location, walking distance to promenade, shops, supermarket and beautiful beach. The heated spa & pool were a massive hit too. We would definitely stay there again!
