Clean, walking distance to shops and restaurants. No lift, we were on 3rd floor but didn't mind the exercise. Decor could do with an update. Room has basics for doing ur own breakfast. No hairdryer in room :( limited undercover parks. Great pool.

Booked this accommodation for three people sharing one room. Apartment was big and clean, staff were friendly and helpful and the amenities in the apartment were sufficient to cook and clean up after ourselves. Good value for money and location within walking distance to the beach. Would recommend to others.

We got some great recommendations with very helpful approach from the manager. We stayed here for a couple of days either side of a tour to Fraser Island, decided to stay for an extra night as Rainbow Beach is a lovely place and the amenities at Rainbow Sands were just what we wanted.
