First room we stayed in had no air con and a broken tv. The room smelt like cigar smoke and the bathroom had broken fixtures. When we complained about this we were given another room and had to move our stuff but we first had to set up our own room. In the new room the air con worked but... More

Had a great stay. Nice apartment and friendly service. The pool was really nice and the place was clean and tidy. We had a big green frog on the back wall outside keeping us company next to a private area where we had meals. Would recommend this place.

My wife and I stayed here for 6 weeks while looking for work in Cairns, The manager Michelle was very accommodating and friendly. The office was only open until early afternoon but given it was the wet season, and she was always available by picking up the phone, it was never a problem. Rooms were basic but had every thing...

The rooms are old and dirty and there is no beachfront whatsoever you can not see any of the beach at this place. The pool was ok but dirty, Wouldn't recommend staying unless you have to. The complex is quiet I guess because of location. Wasn't happy with it and certainly wasn't value for money

Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor (lift or stair access). The balcony did have views towards the ocean with the other side towards neighbouring block and apartments. In saying that though the morning sun was lovely sitting out having breakfast. The unit's 2 bedrooms both have their own bathrooms. With bedroom views... More

The "new" manager- new to us!- is Roy. He did everything he could to make our week long stasy great. Apartments are excellent- washing machine, dryer, large balcony, good sized bedroom, living room and kitchen area. Shower room -no bath. Local restaurants very good- we did some eat-outs and some eat-ins. Takeaway of proper meals means you can sit on... More

Very disappointed in our stay here. We stayed a few years back and had heard the location was great for windsurfing and kitesurfing (which it is!). There was also a little restaurant where we could have a late afternoon drink and the staff were great. Don't expect any of that! No restaurant or bar and no facilities other than the... More

It has been a couple of years since we stayed at the Golden Sands Resort; the place looks quite fresh, Roy our manager was great to deal with and the stay was very pleasant indeed. The exterior has had a spruce up; the two units I have been staying in had fresh tiles and the tired furniture has been updated;... More

Large, clean apartment which was bright and airy. Owners were really friendly and accommodating. Free wifi. Large balcony with nice, comfortable furniture - makes a pleasant change from plastic ones.
