We booked at the last minute and luckily Mandy (Manager) managed to find us rooms ( we stayed 4 nights on the 15th floor) and then 3 nights on the Ground floor).... More

Our family of 3 stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 6th floor from the 8th - 13th January, 2015. We were happy with pictures and features shown on the website but were gobsmacked as we entered the apartment to see views of the ocean we did not expect. The living room area and main bedroom , in particular... More

Let me start from the beginning. I booked this accommodation 5 months prior through an internet travel place, on the proviso that we were to stay in Apt 503 (on hearing such rave reviews on this room on Trip Advisor). So it was left at that. Then a few days before we were to leave I rang Golden Sands just... More

Smelly, unclean, run down. Service when advised unclean & missing items. Told to find somewhere else! It was height of season, public holiday! Only had one toilet roll for 5 day stay, told to buy own.

Golden Sands is located right on the beach and is conveniently located near the Southport Surf Club and the precinct around Tedder Avenue. Being at the top end of the coast it has great access without the traffic/ tram congestion around Surfers and Broadbeach. Perfect for families. The amusement parks are easily reached from this location. The rooms were comfortable... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. We loved the apartment (Room 1003) but agree with another reviewer that the bed in the main bedroom needs to be replaced. Other facilities such as the gym and the pool were fantastic for the reasonable price that we paid. Our view looking north was great and the easy walk to the Main... More

Wow when we walked into the room after a long road trip from Rockhampton. The breathtaking views of the beach and the Pacific Ocean right on the doorstep. The room was modern, clean and very neat and tidy. From booking in to out was hassle free and easy with great service. From the 6th floor got to see whales and... More

We stayed here for three nights in room 1003. The positives were the extremely spacious, clean & tidy unit, absolute beachfront location and walking distance to the shops & restaurants of main beach. The negatives were the unit itself is fairly dated and the bed in main bedroom really needs to replacing. Overall though I thought good value.

Golden Sands is the perfect spot for total relaxation. We have stayed in Apartment 503 twice now and I have to say that it is pure luxury from the moment you walk in the door. It is brand spanking new, white, light and very slick. It is huge and has the most unbelievable view of the beach. It has designer... More
