its a great place to stay the pool and spa area is great, but we were on the top floor with 3 kids (1,5 & 9)the stairs were really hard to deal with and i was scared i would slip or fall down the stairs while carrying the baby. next time i would make sure that we were on one of the lower floors. The staff were also really nice and willing to help with any problems.

Great location and unit layout. Very child friendly - great BBQ area. Only complaints were carpet and curtains in our unit required replacement (dirty and full of holes) and would request a back unit off the main road due to noise of street. Would stay again for sure but probably not in summer as the bedrooms are not air-conditioned. Great stay however and very close to all amenites.

Liked: Unit layout, bbq area, car parking, unit facilities, cleanliness
Disliked: Street noise, carpet and curtains and lack of a/c in bedrooms.

Our family really enjoyed our time at Sandcastles however, I was not happy with one of my daughters bed cover. When I folded it down for th enight there was a blood stain on it on the inside, which made me realise they don\'t change th e cover for each new arrivals YUK!!! And our bed had lots of long black hairs on the inside of that, cover GROSS. Everything else was good.
