    Perfect, Perfect,Perfect!

    A beachfront room in PARADISE! A CLEAN, COMFORTABLE ROOM with a room safe, hot water pot and a bottomless supply of tea and coffee unfailingly re-supplied by the excellent housekeeping dept. Tyne beach in front of our first floor room was manicured and raked every morning. Free kayaks and snorkel gear was used by us every day. Wonderful healthy fresh tropical fruit, yogurt, granola and fresh breads breakfast provided every morning. Front desk and dining room staff were friendly, helpful and wonderful. Thank you Chris!

    The hotel sits right on the beach - and has great snorkeling a few metres of this beach. The rooms are a little tired but the view makes up for it. The breakfast is a simple continental - no frills - but this is reflected in the cost of your stay. Would absolutely stay here again. The staff were great.

    We have loved our stay at Moana Sands! The staff have been so friendly and helpful, everything ran smoothly from booking (email communication was excellent) to check out. We loved the complimentary breakfast, the location is great with a nice local bar just minutes away. The beach is beautiful - practically our own private beach! Our room was lovely and we made great use of the balcony overlooking the water. The hotel restaurant was also a bonus with delicious food, drinks and outdoor dining. We will be back!

    Great stay

    Great stay. Wonderful friendly and informative staff. We had a studio on the beach front so could just step off the patio straight onto the beach. Continental breakfast was ok but more variety could be better especially if you stay for a longer period.

    Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, rooms clean, tidy and well furnished. Staff in the restaurant were exceptional in working around an unusual food allergy, the best service and catering for this we have experienced in a long time. Snorkelling outside the hotel was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. Thanks very much.

    A Lovely Small Hotel

    A small hotel with only 17 rooms meant all the staff got to know us and were extremely helpful. The greatest asset of this hotel and site is the beach and snorkelling. Walk out of your room down the beautiful sandy beach and there is amazing snorkelling or kayaking. We saw a huge number of tropical fish and a turtle. The hotel supplies all you need for snorkelling or kayaking at no cost. The snorkelling from the beach was almost as good as the "paid" options available via commercial operators and was easily suitable for all the family. One family member was able to stand in the water and view tropical fish while his feet were still on the ground. The onsite restaurant serves amazing pizza at a reasonable price. A really quiet hotel, generally between 10pm and 8am there was little noise. Our room had the most incredible views out to the reef, photos on the website matched, what we experienced. One down side was the parking on the side of the road, at times this was full as staff also parked in this area. The building is in need of some maintenance. We would definitely stay here again - based on the access to a beautiful sandy beach, fantastic snorkelling on the door step and quiet location.
