We come to Sanctuary Beach Resort now for over 19 years for holidays while visiting relatives in the valley. We have stayed at Unit 30, 29, 28, 27 and enjoyed the unbeatable views. No road in between building and beaches is rarely found on the Gold Coast. With controlled beaches at the Vicings Club and at Tugun you can't be...

Set right on a beautiful beach and only mins from the airport, this hotel served perfectly for our group. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes only walking distance from the hotel. The beach right in front has some big surf but there is a patrolled beach just down to the left. Loved it.

We stayed at the Sanctuary Beach Resort for the weekend and loved it. The apartments are clean and comfortable, although some are a little dated. The staff Peter and Garry were friendly and helpful. For a group of friends or family holiday you won't be disappointed.

Sanctuary Beach Resort is the perfect place for a great family holiday... right on the beach, with no roads to cross.

This property is in a great location, but is now very old and tired looking and needs a clean up and refurbishment. There were ants in the kitchen and bathrooms which were not welcome. Would not go back again sadly.

Beautiful beach, great location, our unit needed a little bit of updating, but it was comfortable and nice and clean. Wildlife preserve right across the street, grocery store just 10 minute walk and a small convenience store across the street.

We paid top dollar to get a unit with carparking, beach access and air-conditioning, which were the only redeeming features of our week's stay here. On reflection we could probably have gone to an overseas resort for less money and had a better holiday. The beach of course was fabulous, but un-swimmable due to wind and the presence of bluebottles....
