“Once again a great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is our second time at the Golden Sands.
Excellent location and magnificent views, spoils us for anywhere else we stay.
Park next door and surf club within walking distance for meals.
Once again magnificently looked after by the managers Kylie & Graeme.
Had the best nights sleep in a long time, sounds of the waves while drifting off to sleep.
Will stay no where else on the Gold Coast.

Thanks very much, a great stay. Friendly helpful staff who couldn't do enough to help us. We asked for a lower level room with aircon and that's what we got. Right on the beach, great parks and playground close by. Loved the location, close to all the theme parks. Only downside is there is no shallow pool for our 4 year old, but the beach is so close it didn't really matter. Pool was nice and warm.

We absolutely LOVED our week away! We will definately be staying here again. The resident managers were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was amazing looking straight down the beach and the decor was beautiful. It had a brand new kitchen and very smart decor. Very welcoming indeed. It is really close to Tedder Avenue and Southport Surf Club + the Marina so you can walk everywhere. You are away from the main centre of Surfers which we loved but only a 15-20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive. The beach is literally at the door!

We look forward to staying there again on our next holiday. Thank you for great week away.

We will be recommending this to all our friends!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 12th Floor and it was amazing for us without the kids. We will request the 1st Flo...

This was an amazing apartment very big with the most incredible views. It was well furnished. It is a very quiet area. The pool and spa are wonderful and there is a lovely bbq area. Parking is great and access easy. The staff were very welcoming.

Room Tip: The corner apartment on the 15h floor with views to beach/sea and north.

A wonderful place to stay close to the beach very clean everything you could need. Kylie and the staff where extremely helpful with booking tours and even helping me fax off documents when needed. Wonderful views of the beaches and beach front location what more could you ask for had a wonderful holiday would stay here again great value for money.

The beachfront location was perfect for us as we love Main Beach and Tedder Avenue. The apartment had great views and was well set up. One thing that doesn't quite work is that the beds are on wheels on tiles and they slide around a lot. Our room also had very light window coverings so we were up very early in the mornings. The pool and spa are great - we spent quite a lot of time there.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms on the northern side of the building still have wonderful views, but the balconies...
