We spent a week in a spacious villa. It was clean but a little tired. Pool was great but the biggest concern was the way management communicated. At 9pm we were enjoying a quiet end to a lovely BBQ with one other couple. Management approached us and simply said you need to leave now. Without warning they then turned off...

We had a great holiday staying in a 2 bedroom townhouse. It was very spacious and clean, well maintained. Managers very friendly. The location, being directly opposite the beach, was terrific. Great parking, easily accessible to larger vehicles. Pools are lovely and grounds well kept and clean.

The Sands is the perfect place to bring a family. The two pools and tennis courts as to its appeal. It is its close proximity to Pippi beach that wins it for us. The perfect place for an evening or sunrise walk.

We were in Villa 51, which was a gorgeous 2 bedroom. There was only 1 bathroom but there was a second toilet. The villa overlooked the tennis court and we loved the resident magpies in the tree near our balcony. The pool area is beautiful and we loved the clean spacious bbq area. The only downfall is there is no...

Very happy with the room. Air conditioning in main room but not in bedrooms which was the only negative. Pool was clean, location is perfect . If anyone is looking for a hotel in Yamba then this might not be a pick for you as there are permanent tenants in this resort and lots of children. Really great place for...

We've been visiting Yamba for over 10 years and always The Sands in recent years. Always been happy but the new management team have raised the game to new heights. Simply couldn't do enough to help make our stay better (don't want to give the details as don't want to create expectations beyond the advertised inclusions). The facilities are beautiful...
