We were very pleased by our recent stay at the Golden Sands. The best thing it has going for it is definitely the location, right on the beach. All rooms have a private balcony that faces the ocean which gorgeous and VERY close. We stayed in the main building where the office is. We had a concrete wall between each balcony so it really is private. It is an older hotel and style-wise there is no getting around that. Still, the management and staff are clearly working hard to ensure that everything is clean and in good repair. We were very pleasantly surprised in that regard. The room smelled a bit of cleaning products but really was very clean. Ours included a fridge and microwave. We used the outdoor pool and found it to be perfectly fine. It is on the ocean side and it is refreshing to come in off the beach and have a quick pool dip before heading upstairs. The Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar are basically attached to the hotel. They have music on the pier on Thursday and Sunday nights. If you want to hear it, the sound is great from your balcony. If not, close the balcony door and you can barely hear it. It ended well before 10pm so it is really not too big of a deal. Just adds to the beach weekend fun atmosphere. All of the staff we encountered were super friendly and helpful. We asked nicely and were granted both early check in and late check out. We will definitely stay here again.
