If you are looking for a budget holiday this place is great! The staff are friendly and you will never be left wanting for anything. The pool is a litle small but with so much to do in Dubai dont spend it by the pool anyway. There is a shuttle service from the airport and this will also take you... More

I have read many reviews of the Golden Sands Apartments and have just spent 3 nights there at No. 3.and was wondering what I would find after other reviews.. I was expecting a studio room and arrived at 3am to check in immediately and found a huge double suite - rooms were very clean, new towels, newspaper delivered every morning.... More

Stayed in a studio apartment, Golden Sands 3, for a week in June. It was fantastic! Expedia didnt tell me which apartment block it was (i didnt know there was more than 1...but the transfer driver knew anyway). Room was fab - clean, spacious, view wasnt spectacular...looked out over the carpark; but to be fair we didnt spend any time... More

Not sure how the Golden Snads get a 4 star rating as it really only deserves 2. Had booked for 5 nights but checked out after 3 to go to another hotel. Air con was noisy, tumble drier was broken, bathroom could have had a cleaner bath and tiles. Towels were changed daily and rooms done to good standard but... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, booked with trust through an agent without seeing any info on the hotel whatsoever. However, I don't think I could've wished for a better hotel (for the price). A free shuttle bus was waiting for us at the airport at 1am, and on arrival the staff were friendly and helpful, taking our luggage straight to... More

I stayed at Golden sands last october and the year before that. However on both occasions my reviews have been rather different. I found that the standards between the various Golden Sands locations are not the same. If your looking for low cost accommodation but can vary on standards then its the best place. This year i booked through Oasis... More

I only stayed for two nights, but I would recommend this hotel to anyone. A very central location in the old part of Dubai town. The room was well equipped and the A/C worked well. If you are looking for a resort type hotel look else where there is a token pool in GS3 where I stayed. I paid £60... More

Loads of space, very clean and serviced every day - the staff were very helpful - even... More

We had a 3 bedroom appartment at Golden Sands 10. We booked directly on thehotels own website and got a good deal of 6 nights for £700. At the time, other websites were quoting over £1000 for the same accomodation. We booked about 3 weeks in advance. However, about a week before we went they slashed the prices to under... More
