We enjoyed a family holiday at Golden Sands and will definitely be back again. Our apartment had gorgeous uninterrupted views of Main Beach, and was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location was ideal for proximity to beach, fabulous restaurants and Sea World, which was a big hit with our kids! I would also like to mention that we had received excellent... More

I attempted to book four nights in a 2 bedroom apartment directly with the apartments. Because it was during the upcoming September school holidays I was told I had to book five nights as this is what the apartment owners require during school holidays. Although disappointed I thought - fair enough. However a couple of days later I was looking... More

I don't want to be completely negative about this review, therefore I am going to start from the positive side. Golden Sands has this spectacular ocean views thanks to its unique location. It is one of the few buildings located on the east side of the boulevard, directly ON the ever famous gold coast beach. During the day, you may... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Cynne.

I stepped in my two bedroom apartment and was just mesmerized by magnificent view of ocean and its lovely sound. apartment is literally on the beach. Area is quite and still close enough to sea world and surfers paradise, Apartment was clean, roomy, and perfectly facing ocean. We stayed 3 nights there so all the provided resources were enough, if... More

Great location, my two bedroom apartment was fantastic. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend Golden Sands and I would stay here again. the one downside would be not having like a little bottle of soap or dish liquid to clean dishes (nobody packs that or remembers to buy that at the store) and dishtowels.

Have just had a short break in this apartment. So refreshing to stay in a sparkling fully renovated stylish well equipped 2 bed room apartment. Loved the plunge bath not many apartments have a bath the beds are v comfortable as is the sofa bed. Loved sitting on the balcony watching the Nippers. Can't wait to come back in May.
