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

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

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.
