Although a little dated these apartments have everything you could ask for, peace and quite lovely pool area and just around the corner from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and a short walk to the beach. Friendly and helpful managers, We would definitely return for a family holiday.

Had the misfortune of paying what i now consider an exuberant amount of money to stay in what was described in the website to be a 4.5 star resort.

We have had our pest control technician attend only to find some ants...

After reading previous reviews we booked for 3 nights. Maybe we were unlucky in our unit. No working overhead light in bedroom and a dismantled bed lamp. Our light the other bed lamp. We reported it twice. The bathrooms were dated and discoloured . Won't be back.

The only thing that bothered us were airplanes flying over our heads. We didn't know that this place is on the landing route from Coolangatta airport. So it was annoying to wake up at...

Sanctuary Lakes Apartments are absolutely amazing and neat apartments to stay with your family. Tony and Miles, the resident managers of the apartments were more than helpful and very congenial. The resort has all the amenities you look for your comfortable stay.

Fully stocked kitchen can reduce holiday costs by cooking meals. Has 2 bedrooms and bathrooms to give family plenty of space. Brilliant having washing machine and dryer so you don't have to take dirty clothes home. Very close to patrolled beach.

This was a nice clean apartment, but it smelt very strongly of smoke and alcohol on entry. The Pool area is lovely, as are the gardens. About a 5 min walk to the beach. We backed directly on to the Currumbin Wildlife sanctuary and there was a bit of wildlife noise, but nothing too loud. Unfortunately the bed was really...
