Golden Sands combines fantastic absolute beach front location with great facilities, not to mention the welcoming hospitality of resident managers Mandy and Vee. A holiday at Golden Sands is a must for anyone looking for... More

Stayed here with family many times and particularly by ourselves for the Gold Coast Marathon events. The new Managers have a similar manner to the previous in that they are very helpful, friendly, caring and make you feel very welcome. Superb views and good location. Close to the patrolled beach and the SLSC coffee shop/restaurant/bar and only a 5 minute... More

Stayed at Golden Sands this month. Great location on the beach front. Beautiful views. Both apartments we stayed in where modern, nice decor. Carpets could do with a steam clean after every guest! Found other peoples hair on the carpets. The only complaint is having a room next to elevator & a person who smoked you could smell it everytime... More

We recently stayed at Golden Sands again, having been there last year and loved it. The location is superb, right on the beachfront at Main Beach so no road in front, the '02' rooms ie 1302 etc have views straight up the beach towards the spit, and over the beach directly in front, it is just heaven to watch, especially...

Have stayed here previously and would stay again. Mixture of permanent residents and holiday units. Building is very quiet and absolute beach frontage. Changed onsite managers whilst we were there and the new managers were just as polite/ friendly as the previous ones. Onsite undercover secure parking as well as a open air carpark onsite. Large living room. Spacious wardrobe... More

Overall, i enjoyed my stay here in november 2013. But i probably try another place next time i visit. The good: 1. The views are really spectacular from the apmt. While i got a three bedroom unit that is on the side so no frontal view of the ocean except from the master, the views are still pretty awesome from... More

Stayed here for a small family reunion. Very friendly family run business.The apartment(# 1202) is very clean with a very well equipped kitchen. We walked in and the first thing you see is a wall of ocean views, amazing!!!! We spent one entire afternoon watching dolphins & whales swimming along the coast. It's very hard to not relax when you... More

I am currently sitting in apartment 503 which has the most beautiful view out to the beach/sea, watching surfers catch the last of the waves. Being north-east facing this is one of the best ones in the building and it has had some outstanding remodelling completed recently. Everything is perfect - modern and edgy design (I'm pretty sure the owners... More

My family and I recently stayed at Golden Sands Apartment 503. Golden Sands is in the best position in Main Beach, right on the beach and right next door to the park with no other apartment blocks overlooking it. It is very private and quiet. We stayed in Apartment 503 which has had a total refurb. No expense has been... More

I booked here as I wanted to almost re-live our Waikiki, Hawaii visit. We had a 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment. At first I was a little disappointed as I wanted absolute ocean view not a side view. Regardless , the room , apartment , management and beach is awesome. Having a 2 bedroom apartment meant we could have visitors... More
