We stayed in Golden Sands apartments for a family wedding in Goa. It is slightly interior from the main road, there is a small signboard, which could be missed. Martin's Corner, a happening joint is just about 500 m away. The apartments look clean and maintained very well. It was as if we were staying in a single bedroom house... More

As other reviewers have described, Golden Sands is set in gorgeous grounds with a very nice swimming pool, and apartments that are a much higher standard than many I've stayed in in Europe. All round excellent place to spend a holiday. However, there are some things that can make your stay a disappointment. Like many people still working, I rely... More

We stayed here over the last two weeks. It is, as all the reviews say, beautiful. Spotlessly clean and fine attention to detail. I don't want to repeat the other reviews so I thought I'd just update on a few specific issues. The way these lovely appartments are managed has changed this year. This has resulted in overbooking ( even... More

I, along with my family, travelled to Goa in December 2014. We booked this hotel online and the owner was quite friendly. The resort ambience was great, apartments were clean and services were great! There was everything one could ever ask for. The place had grown one me! The location is close to the Betalbatim beach and Martin's is around... More

September 2014. We planned a 15 hour car drive from Mumbai to Goa return and a two days stay. Holiday criteria: Excellent cosy spacious Villa near the beach, peaceful surroundings, great choices for nearby eating out places and a choice for us to drive to North Goa as per our requirements. One thing was clear, we would not stay at... More

Just spent two lovely weeks at Golden Sands, really recomended. Its about 10 Minutes walk to the beach, but then a further 10/15 mins along the beach to the nearest shacks/sunbeds. You can get a Taxi to take you to the beach, enter beach at Nanu Resort (£2 each way), which in backend of March early April was preferable to... More
