“Acceptable Resort in Puri”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

First i must say that the service of the staff was very good and the food was good. More than the food the way the staff attended made us enjoy the food. The resort was neat and had a beautiful private beach. The only draw back in the resort was that the rooms were very old and it needs an urgent refurbication.

I stayed there for two days and a night. The place is a bit away and difficult to reach, which is probably its appeal. People are nice and courteous and helpful. The room I stayed in was large with a bedroom, living & kitchen area. Decent enough hotel to stay a couple of days. Food was reasonably good.
It took me 1hr. 20min. to reach from Bubaneshwar airport.

Everything is alright but nothing which will please. A little bit of maintenance is required all around.

We along with family and friends (18 guests) suddenly decided to visit Puri on 2nd Jan 2014 and Sterling resorts had been very helpful to arrange rooms for all of us in such notice during such peak season. Hats off to Sterling as such efficiency and helpful nature I had never experienced from any other highly rated Holiday clubs affiliated to RCI.
From the time we arrived Golden Sands, Puri, the front office reception staff gave us a very warm welcome, all the staff did everything with smile on their face to make us feel comfortable, the hospitality was at its best. The rooms were really clean, very comfortable & well furnished with kitchenette & microwave. The location of the hotel is about 3-4 km from the old Puri beach, but it was a blessing for us as this resort location is outstanding, awesome scenic beauty of river meeting the sea, very clean beach just 10 minutes walk from the resort far from the madding crowd of the old dirty Puri beach. The resort has lovely big clean swimming pool and wonderful atmosphere and ambiance in the resort. The Food in the resort is absolutely outstanding at a bargain price, lots of choice if you are a good eater, thanks to the Chef and the Manager for the extraordinary food & service.
There are lot of negative remarks regarding the distance from the main Puri town which is all rubbish, there are Autos, Sumo, Magic Taxi which costs Rs.200 ~250 for 4-8 passengers to go to Sorgodwar or old Puri beach, yes the road is bad, but it takes 15 minutes only. We all felt we would rather stay in this lovely resort again & again than stay at old Puri, simply due to the wonderful location, scenic beauty, ambiance, food and warm & friendly nature of the resort staff.
Thanks to all the staff of Sterling Golden Sands for giving us such a wonderful holiday at Puri.

In my opinion, to have a nice & fantastic holiday & also to have a great relaxation at Puri, Orissa, there can be nothing better than Sterling resorts, Puri due to it's excellent surrounding & ambience. The most important that we would generally prefer to have is our meals. The meals there are extraordinary & excellent cooking by their chefs. Enjoyed every dishes & preparations & found upto the mark. I'll definitely recommend Sterling Resorts, Puri to my freinds & relatives & also last but not the least my internet colleagues. Go n have fun over there.

Room Tip: Choose a cottage type room so that you can have a feeling at home & definitely facing sea side...

It has been a great experience or us during our very short stay.The property is very nicely kept,has lot of greenery,one gets optimum privacy since the rooms are very well spread out.
the duplex rooms are really nice and gives a feeling of home.The food is also very good and to top it all the Staff are very cordial and helpful.You will always find them smiling which is really worth praising.Moreover, I must mention "Sagarika"the lady in the reception who has been really
helpful right room my time of booking to check -out.She is an asset for the resort.

The Resort is very attractive and well spaced out. The ground are well maintained and very clean. The rooms are comfortable but a tiny bit of maintenance would be in order. The food was very good. Would advise the Tandoori Chicken, simply mouthwatering., The biryani was excellent,
What made our stay memorable was the smiles and ready service of managment and staff. Our special thanks go to Sucheta, Sagorika, and Satyam, not forgetting Pratima and Amit.

Plus points are beautiful resort, close to beach and scenic landscapes. Rooms are good but not excellent but the resort is bit too far from city but vehicles can be found with ease. Food was average and expensive
