We had a two bedroomed beach front apartment. You couldn't be any nearer to the ocean. What bliss falling asleep at night hearing the ocean right outside your window. We had amazing unobstructed views down the beach towards the Mirage Marina. The on-site managers were excellent and very helpful and made all the booking for the attractions we visited. The... More

This is paradise and we love it, so much better than going overseas. Gorgeous beach, a 2 minute walk to Tedder Ave restaurants, we can walk to Marina Mirage or Seaworld. It's an older building, but the ocean front units literally hang out over the beach and the views of the ocean and all the way down to Surfer's Paradise... More

The Golden Sands Apartments are right on the beach at Main Beach. And by “right on the beach” I mean exactly that – there is no road or footpath between the apartments and the sand. And because it is in Main Beach it is a lot quieter than being in the middle of the Gold Coast, but still only a... More

We travelled to the gold coast for a wedding at the Sheraton Mirage. We are a family of 5 and like to have enough room to spread out. The Golden Sands was fantastic. Close to Mirage, Sea world, easy beach access, plenty of room, and recently refurbished apartment. Management were most friendly and helpful for any questions and service requests.... More

We stayed here as a family over the Christmas break. Having previously stayed here, we were all looking forward to our holiday. This feeling of excitement instantly left us as we entered into our room. The room is in dire need of updating. Paint is peeling off most walls and fans, the chairs and stools are rusted, there are holes... More

The location was excellent right beside a huge park and close to the surf club. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful. I would recommend these apartments as they are large all with great views. Shops and eating places within easy walking distance.

We had a room on the 11th floor which had views right up and down the beach. It was stunning just to sit on the balcony and enjoy the fresh air and peace only the ocean can give you. The room was 2 bed with a full kitchen & 2 bathrooms. All were exceptionally clean and well equipped. The pool... More

What an amazing stay we had. We were on the 14th floor Beach front south apartment with such gorgeous views. Pool and spa area was a favorite for our 5 year old and we spent lots of time there. Beach access directly from hotel was a bonus - we couldn't see a man made track but who needs one, your... More

My Family and I (including my parents) spent a week here, and I now have children willing to give up Christmas presents to come back. It is central to almost everything, right on the beach, and just a short walk to cafés and restaurants and convenience stores. We had apartment 1204 and my only criticism was that it could have...
