Stayed here for 6 nights with my partner. On arrival we were shown to room 553, this room is a smoking room it looked very dark and smelt of smoke, as a none smoker I couldn't stay in that room so I asked to be changed. The reception staff and duty manager Benjamin were very helpful.I was then allocated room... More

The room and pool is clean and nice. I'll definitely go back again if I go Penang. The sea view room is definitely a catch for this hotel and very near to the sea side. Downside of this hotel is that it is very far from the town but it's worth the ride.

Staying at the Golden Sands Resort is a pleasure, good attentive staff good food especially the breakfast and seafood buffet night. The outside life has a good buzz on an evening, the outside food hall is a must also.

A nice relaxing resort with nice gardens and good service. Rooms were comfortable and resort facilities were adequate. Plenty of shops and restaurants close by to visit. Plenty of room around the pool.

The hotel was fantastic & beyond words, from food, to rooms & the staff. My sister & I had our rooms upgraded to the top floor with no additional charge! It was indeed very gracious of Golden Sands. We also had adjoining rooms & our rooms faced the pools & the open sea which was great. The breakfast was plentiful... More

We stayed two nights and I just wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms are great. I loved the multimedia panel at the desk with sockets for every type of connection to display on the tv. I wish more hotels would put in this nice touch. The staff were simply lovely. I felt particularly sorry though, for the bar... More

Hotel is a good 45mins - 1 hour from the airport. No problems in checking in. We had a non sea facing room which wasn't a problem as it was last minute and we weren't going to spend much time in there. Saying that...we soon realised that it became an issue when the Mosque, which was literally right in front... More

This is the 4th time we have stayed at this location and each time is just as rewarding as the first time. The reception staff made a fuss of us on arrival and even remembered to ask about our children who were not with us this time. Whatever time of day or night we arrive, we always get great treatment.... More

The pool facility was excellent. We had dinner every night during our stay at their restaurant Sigi. Great menu and great food. It was a memorable... More

We stayed at the front(not see view) top floor and the room was lovely. It wasn't noisy from the road and rooms were big in comparison to the sea view rooms. The pools and sun bathing area were nice with a near by bar. They do happy hour between 5-8 then 9-11 in the indoor sitting area by the entrance.... More
