Overall the accommodation was good but did lack Air Conditioning which to me should be a must. It was a very hot day and the bedrooms were like saunas, the good old fashioned ceiling fans did not cut the mustard. It is not the cheapest place to stay and for the price we felt somewhat let down, was almost like...

I left my booking a little late for a wedding in Currumbin which left my choices very limited. I thought this was too expensive at $325 a night but as the reviews were glowing booked. Sadly we did not enjoy our stay at all. The unit we had was very old and the doors were splitting, the walls extremely marked...

The location, very close to the Currumbin beach is great. Currumbin is very nice but directly under the flight path so there are several moments a day you get the airplane noise. The unit we were in was spacious, the beds comfortable, the shower large ( but the shower head small).This is not a hotel or motel so you get...

These apartments are located a few metres walk from the beach. Surfing , fishing, children's playground, shops only a 600 metre walk or 3 minutes in the car. These shops included IGA, Dominos Pizza and BWS for the essentials and a few others. *Only 8 minutes to the Coolangatta airport. The apartments were a little dated and needed some maintenance...

We have just returned from the Gold Coast staying at Sandcastles on Currumbin Beach. I would recommend this location to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in stunning settings. The complex is well maintained with the BBQ area highlighting the beach views. A walk out the side gate leads into park settings with the beach just beyond. The proprietors Brian and...

It was a beautiful stay with break taking views. We would stay here again definitely. Our room was stylish and updated with a very homely feel. We highly recommend to stay here.

I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at sand castles. The complex is small, well maintained, and a very relaxed vibe with it. My accomadation was average-dated alittle but totally clean. I believe there is more updated accomadation available.I would return. Thank you to the owners, ye should be proud.

Great location close to the beach and stores/amenities of the small town. It was extremely clean and linens and towels were exceptionally white. The staff (although I mostly met only security guards) were super friendly. If you're looking for luxury this is not the place, but for travelers who care more about experience, it's perfect.

I would recommend Sand Castles. Close to beach, park, walking paths. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and surf clubs. Management are helpful and whole complex is extremely clean and well maintained. Great value, secure parking, all amenities. Close to bird sanctuary so bird visit regularly. Beach or park views. Excellent!
