I stayed for 5 nights in June and apart from the bathroom which although functional was in need of a deep clean but it served its purpose. I went for breakfast on the same floor as my studio which was more of a junior suite with a small kitchenette. I could not find anything edible apart from coffee,toast which took... More

The rooms are sizeable and comfortable and clean. We had a room near noisy corridor air conditioning, and couldn't get to sleep, and the staff were wonderful. Even though they couldn't hear it themselves (and probably privately thought we were loony) they were courteous and respectful and just moved us straight away, and the new room was good and quiet....

This hotel is warn down, miles from the beach in a run down area. There is building work going on around it. There is a shuttle bus that takes you to the beach but it leaves at 9.30am and returns at 5pm so you are limited in the flexibility. The taxi fair is around 8pounds one way tok the beach.

We stayed there for a period of two nights. Upon arrival we were made to pay a deposit for an already paid for room. We were exhausted and not given much choice. You get only whats been paid for. It was decent. Breakfast was basic. Bathrooms are ancient. And its centrally located.

Our two bedroom apartment was very spacious. The bed was large and moderately comfortable with comfy pillows. Large wardrobe space and a security box. The bathroom shower over the bath was good though ran too hot even at it's lowest setting. The hand basin was set into a long bench space so plenty of room for things. It was impossible... More

Nice hotel, half alright price, decent services and friendly staff. Would reccomend to friends and stay again for a good price, very much a budget hotel. The smoking smell from rooms on the non-smoking floor was a bit of an off-put. A few more services would be good, instructions maybe to use the washer/dryer....

Otherwise the Golden Sands Apartment Hotel (no. 5) was very good value for money, a clean modern well maintained building. And we had a large airy well furnished room. On the good side there was this plus fast free wifi. On the negative side, all the TV channels were in Arabic. This we have found to be unusual even in... More
