This is the best spot in Main Beach. Right on the beachfront, no roads to cross and smack bang next to a park. Just perfect. Fantastic people on the front desk who really can't do enough for you. Beachfront tennis court, pool, spa and a gym and steam room. We stayed in 503 on the 5th floor which is a... More

It is very funky, with a concete floor in the living area, new top of the line kitchen with European stainless steel appliances and stone bench and is fully... More

We stayed in room 1303 for our one week holiday to the Gold Coast. The Golden Sands is located right on the beach and we had beautiful ocean views. The kitchen has been updated recently but the other rooms need a freshen up. Old 80s fittings in the bathrooms, flaky ceiling paint in the bathrooms and main bedroom and numerous... More

I really loathe to give this a not so good review for this visit. We have stayed here twice before and have had the most beautiful apartments both times. Unfortunately this time we were a little let down. Apartment 1401 is rather run down. Needs a coat of paint, dining and breakfast bar chairs very marked & looked grubby, carpets... More

We recently booked a 3 bedroom apartment for a family holiday and selected the Golden Sands as the apartments looked very nice on their website. Originally there were suppose to be 3 adults and 3 kids, so we'd booked and had confirmed 1 queen bed and 4 singles. When we arrived the apartment had 2 queen beds and 2 singles... More

Traveled with 2A&2C and we stayed 4 nights in the two bedroom apartment (room 1003). Pros: 1) Good location that just steps away from main beach, 2 mins walk to 7 Eleven convenience shop & Subway. 8 mins walk to Tedder avenue where you can access to the shops, restaurants just by walking distance. If you are driving, area is... More

Experience was ok, the apartment was a little bit dirty but still enjoyed our stay. Absolutely enjoyed the pool, spa and sauna. The view was breath taking looking over the water. Will be staying again in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am disappointed to hear that you found your apartment to be a "little bit dirty" as we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and housekeeping. If you had made us aware of what was dirty we could have addressed the issue immediately but nothing was said to us either when... More

Back again for our second stay at Golden Sands. What a lovely warm and welcoming couple Mandy and Vee ( the Managers) are. We arrived late at night but were able to let ourselves in to the two-bedroom, two bathroom apartment which was spotless, spacious and with great views over the beach and facing the sea. The apartment was well... More

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
