“Most friendly hotel in Europe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stayed here for 2 weeks in the superior rooms on the top floor. First thing I did when opening the door was said: "F__k me!" at suprise at how nice the room and view was. top floor rooms are amazing and the view is incredible because the hotel is right on the beach. The beach is one of the most beautiful in the Britsh Isles and we constantly amazed by the view. The only down side is that the top floor rooms get a little bit hot.
We were ther on half board with our 15 month old daughter and wife's family. Both the breakfast and dinners were excellent and the staff were extremely friendly. They were very good with our little girl. The reception staff were also very friendly and helpful. They also have beach toys that you can borrow to take to the beach and DVDs that can be watched in your room.
The only down side is that there is no hotel parking. There is parking over th road that costs £3.65 for the whole day from 8am to 5pm and is free over night and on Sundays. The hotel sels the parking tickets so it is very easy and convenient.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a room facing the sea to get the most out of this hotel.

Stayed here for three nights. The reception staff and those in the dining area are superb. I have never been so welcomed and found staff as attentive and keen to help with anything. Dolan should be commended for the quality of their staff here. We stayed in a room facing the road, another time I would definitely recommend paying the extra to overlook the sea as every morning at 04.30 there were people outside either making loads of noise, shouting and swearing or just chatting . A great shame as the location in the centre of the Bay is brilliant.

Room Tip: Go for a sea facing room

Fantastic...!! Just back from a fabulous week at Golden Sands....fist class service from the minute arriving at the front door. All staff helpful, polite and nothing too much trouble. Rooms immaculate and great food in both restaurant and bar. Sea view is to die for and in the week we stayed there it was touching 30 degrees, so who needs the Caribbean..?? We dinned at a variety of different restaurants just a two min walk away, all with excellent sea views.
We hired a car for a week, and to be honest we hardly used it as St Bralade's had everything we needed. If you do want to travel then the bus service is great. Hotel is no more than 10 mins from the airport, yet you will never hear an aeroplane or see one going over the Bay as then enter Jersey from the opposite side of the island.
If you are looking for a hotel that provides outstanding service, location and views then you won't find better. Don't look any further...get it booked today..!!
Will be going back for more.

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra as Sea View is WELL WORTH the extra

We have just returned home after staying at the Golden Sands Hotel for a week. We had a fabulous time. The staff are absolutely brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. All the reception staff were very helpful and also Alistair and Veronica in the restaurant and John in the bar were all 1st class.

We stayed in room 404 which was an excellent room. Large and clean with fabulous sea views. The cleaning staff were also 1st class.

The food was superb. There is a good choice for breakfast and our evening meal was faultless.

The only thing I would say is that the hotel could really do with air conditioning. Our room was very hot and therefore hard to sleep at night, but apart from that it was first class.

My parents stayed at St Brelade's Bay Hotel during the same week. We felt this hotel was really stuffy, unfriendly and unhelpful. Everyone was pushed into the restaurant and you had to sit at the same table every morning for breakfast. We had a very disappointing dinner here as well. They had a twin room with sea view which was OK, although the balcony is all one for the entire floor with a short wrought iron fence in between each room so therefore there was no privacy. My parents spent more time in our hotel than at their own hotel!!

Room Tip: worth paying a little more for the triple rooms on 4th floor....and a must to have a sea view...amaz...

We stayed here for 1 night recently. The reception staff are very welcoming and informative of the island. The room was a good size but was quite expensive bearing in mind that there was not air-conditioning, but it did have amazing views over the beach. The room was very clean and the wifi was quick. Breakfast was ok.

The Seaview rooms are fantastic - watch the surfers from your balcony. The rooms have all you'd expect from a hotel of this quality and we could not fault them. The saff were professional, helpful, friendly and efficient. The restaurant served excellent food overlooking the bay. I cannot praise this hotel enough.
Only one small criticism. Space is precious on the island and this hotel does not have a carpark but there's ample parking opposite at 70p for 2 hours (between 08:00 and 17:00) using scratch cards available at reception.

Room Tip: For the best view, ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor. Be prepared however to hear the waves on...

We didn't stay here, only went to the restaurant part - which was fully booked they said. We got seated in the bar/club side which was still very nice and overlooking the beach of St Brelade. Menu was almost the same as for the restaurant with the same prices. Food price was average, portion could have been a bit bigger, but still was ok. Staff wasn't that friendly - maybe because we just walked in, and didn't stay at this hotel. Still.... they should be happy for every customer.
