4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We loved Cambodia so much that we think everything was excellent!) everything was ok exept some bad smell in bath, It was better if in room was balcony, and also near swimming pool, there was bar constructing, it was a little bit noise. and last bad thing- some times^ when we went for the breakfast in the early time, there were so much people, that we couldnt find place to sit, and food mostly was over. To say the trouth, cambodian people think this hotel is awesome, I cant say so, but it is rather good.

If you get a room facing the pool than it's good value. On a high floor even better.
Breakfast buffet - below average, should be fresher and they "forget" to refill.
Pool area get's a lot of noise from street traffic
- but the good thing is the beach with all their eating venues and bars is not far away - about 10 minutes walk or 3 minutes by Remork (Tuk tuk) for a dollar.
There are several very reasonable open air restaurants close to the hotel.
The cafe beside the pool serves very good ice cream.

Don't like writing reviews, but this hotel sending a letters for me everyday asking to rate them, stop spaming me, please! The hotel is good, but our windows doesn't open and right in front was a barbed wire(( Room is small and only a swimming pool makes this hotel better then a lot of guesthouses around, we moved to one of them with a balcony, big room, good view and chiper price)

Room Tip: Choose higher levels with windows to the pool!

Excellent hotel- clean, not very busy. Not many backpackers there but at the same time we didn't feel out of place. Friendly staff who helped us book our overnight bus. Pool was spacious and very quiet- however some evenings there was an influx of locals who took it over and didn't appear to be staying there

Best place location. Set in the heart of the city. Very close to the beach. Clean, quiet, comfortable, equidistant from the main attractions. Breakfast is varied, good assortment. But the expensive dinner and not very tasty. You can eat in a restaurant next to cheaper and tastier.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with views of the pool. View more interesting

Me and my friends stayed in Golden Sand for 3 days.The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the pool is excellent. Good location, just away from the beach and close to many restaurants .Definitely we recommend this hotel and we would stay again.
