I have stayed here 3 times now and always had a fabulous holiday. The Pool is Amazing and the beach is gorgeous. The staff are so so lovely, warm and friendly.

What you pay, is what you get! Brilliant in every way, even the local food served in the two restaurants. The resort is quiet, massivly impressive - and pretty expencive by vietnamese standards. We went off-season, mid september, had fantastic weather, and just a few aussies.

The room was filthy and stains on the walls. The bathroom hadnt been cleaned properly after the previous guest had checked out. I asked to change... More

we checked into the Golden Sands after 4 days at Life Resort in the Ancient Town. There can be no doubt that the views from the lobby out to the pool and the beach and ocean beyond are second to none and we felt like we were in heaven. this place is totally spectacular.

Considering it is almost double the price of other great 4 star resorts and Hotels , you would expect the best service possible in Hoi An. However this is not the case. Slow check in, we were in the furthest room in the place, perhaps because we got a cheap rate through expedia and not the exorbitant desk rate. Rooms... More

The hotel is definetely not 5 stars, at least not any more. It looks worn and it is too massive. The rooms are big and nicely decorated but the place is when comparing with the Victoria definitely not worth the money. Prices are too high for all added services. The shuttle bus times are not good. Internet is not free.... More

We stayed at the Golden Sands in April at the end of our tour of Vietnam, we were there for 12 nights. The rooms were good, very clean but with small balconies which rather spoilt sitting out.

shabby fittings, dirty room, musty smell, grumpy staff, terrible expensive food (even rice was overcooked). Despite advertised wifi throughout, does not work in rooms and slow where does work. Nice pool and good breakfast buffet, but if you want 5* stay at victoria.
