If you are going to Phuket and want a clean, decent, friendly place to stay, look no further than the Golden Sand Inn. The Inn has everything you need, including a beach side location, that you could possibly want. The staff is super friendly and attentive to every detail. The landscaped grounds and screened in porches make for leisure living... More

The staff at the Golden Sand were nice, they helped us with organising a motorbike as well as bent over backwards when our last minute planning was an epic fail - they got us into a bungalow just in time for New Year's. The restaurant was sooooo good and at such great prices that even when we moved on and... More

We spend two nights at Golden Sand Inn. We booked this hotel at the last minute. We settled for a deluxe room. We were glad we did, as the standard rooms are bungalows (wooden huts)spread out on the ground floor, and looks a bit eerie at night time. However, our deluxe room was nice and big with a decent size... More

Me and my family stayed at this hotel june/july 11 for three nights, and we really enjoyed it. It's a lovely place to stay in with a very kind staff, clean rooms and great environment. The hotel was located very good and we found very nice restaurants to eat in. The only thing we did complain to, was the breakfast.... More

The Golden Sand Inn is a lovely Hotel by Karon Beach in Phuket. The staff is very friendly and really look after you. The hotel is just across the road from the beach, where you can have a nice swim and relax with a fresh coconut juice! I would recommend hiring a scooter in order to enjoy some better beaches...

the deluxe rooms as they are called at Golden Sand are quite nice. There is a less expensive type of room near the pool which we had booked. The latter rooms were too small for two people with a large suitcase each. We tried to move but the deluxe rooms were full. So we scrambled around the next morning trying... More

We had a delux room in February. The room looks good with balcony and the size of the room was o.k., but it was full with mosquito. The furniture and the bathroom looks old, but this is the one of the oldest hotel on Karon Beach. The room was 2400 baht/night, this quality in Pattaya a few days ago was... More

Stayed here for the 2nd year in a row. Bungalow room this year was older than previous year and not as nice. However, the gardens, pool area and location across the street from the beach made up for it. The breakfast buffet is very very good. Rooms are cleaned every day and the staff are nice and helpful. Would stay... More

Great location on the north end of Karon Beach, the beach is just across the road (you can rent chairs and umbrellas for a low price on the beach), and it's within walking distance to the tiny downtown area and lots of restaurants. The hotel has a decent pool and a full breakfast. We didn't book ahead; it was low... More
