I stayed here for over a week with my family. I researched reviews on this accommodation and thought it sounded good. When we got there it seemed ok... but as time went by i started noticing how bad the place actually was.. I unfortunately dont have pictures to share as my phone broke on the last day of our vacation....

I booked through a travel agent who told me the amazing reviews diamond sands resort had. I looked at reviews and thought it sounded good. I was looking for an appartment style accommodation due to having young kids. When i arrived at diamond sands resort the lady on reception was rather rude and left a bad impression, she seemed more...

Stayed here for a week and was pleased with what it had to offer. The apartment was very nice but could have been a little cleaner but still was happy. The pool was great and spent most morning and nights swimming only problem with the pool was the sand paper like bottom that would catch you off guard if you...

Just the night receptionist didn't mention it when we told her...

Stayed 3 nights at Diamond Sands and had a lovely time. The pool is fantastic and the apartment we stayed in was clean and well maintained. The location couldn't be better, bus stop out front to the theme parks and Pacific Fair/Broadbeach and the beach across the road. The staff in the office (Peter and Don) were amazing and gave...

Loved the pool! Great for my 3 year old who loved the toddler pool and loved playing in the sand (never seen a pool like it!) while my 6 year old swam close by. Loved it until I was smacked in the back of my head by a stray rugby ball by people disobeying the 'no ball games' rule. Also...

On first impressions this appears to be a nice place, the grounds are well maintained (and we thanked the caretaker on our last day for the great job he does) and the pool looks like a lagoon in paradise, and was well worth the many visits we made for the week that we stayed. In room however the quality and...

Recently had 3 nights at this resort, and probably wouldn't come back. It had a lovely beautiful pool which was lovely and warm and plenty of lounges around it. The apartment itself was good, but we were placed in the back corner of the resort with no view except peoples yards and did not feel safe at all, you could...

This is our third visit to Diamond Sands, from the minute we booked we had a truly smooth experience. Peter and his team on the front desk couldn't have been more helpful. We had 'our' beautiful Apartment 20 (as requested) and we all had the most idyllic holiday. The apartment is getting a bit tired, but for a big happy...

The feeling of home away from home, is surely an understatement, this is paradise in paradise. Detailed rooms and amazing service plus the tranquility illustrated by the green life. Need I say more...I must be back, n not alone next time
