The hotel has an amazing view from the lobby and the owners are friendly. However, it was not enough to convince me that it was a great stay. My bedroom sea view was partially obstructed by the main house roof. It was clean and simple, and the bed was really hard.
One day we came back from the beach and our bedroom door was unlocked so we had to complain with the owner. The breakfast was very basic, few options, with instant juice. We were not told about that shuttle bus mentioned in other reviews; we were OK to go up and down the hill 2x a day, but it is definitely not an option for those who are not fit.
The Golden Beach is wonderful and we were very lucky with the weather. I would love to go back one day, but I would definitely choose a different place to stay.
