“an enjoyable lunch”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Popped in for lunch whilst on a3 day break having visited for drinks on a previous trip to Jersey. The Scottish barman was friendly and efficient and patient with our dithering over whether to sit inside or on the outside balcony terrace! I had a spicy chicken and avocado ciabatta and my daughter had a fish dog and chips. The fish dog is a battered piece of plaice. Both were tasty and good sized portions. Good value and great service with a stunning view over St Brelades Bay's sunny beach.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

Great location on the beach, staff v friendly and helpful. Rooms excruciatingly hot (and small) with no air conditioning. Not sure it's worth what we paid (a small fortune). Perhaps we were unlucky with the room we were allocated but we were overlooking the road and the kitchen entrance, which was noisy and smelly.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are pretty nice if you have more money than sense...

By far my most favourite hotel on the Island.
I have stayed many times, and have been treated like Royalty on each and every occasion.
The staff are polite and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is the best you could ever hope for.
The hotel has one of the best positions on the Island for beach activities, and the food and quality of service cannot be beaten in my opinion.
The Island of Jersey has much to offer, and the Golden Sands goes that extra mile to ensure that you are availed of all that there is on offer.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a sea view balcony.

Just the spot for a relaxing holiday. Attentive staff, great sea view rooms where you can lay in bed and hear the waves break on the beach below. Good food to suit most tastes. A good bus service which reduces the need for a car as their is no hotel car park. Many interesting places to visit for which St Helier is a good juing off point.

Room Tip: Choose sea facing with balcony.

This is the second time we have stayed at Golden Sands and definitely won't be the last. We had a clean, well equipped and very comfortable room with balcony overlooking a stunning view of the bay. Breakfast has a good selection of hot and cold foods and the evening menu in the restaurant is excellent. A great holiday and good value for money.

Stayed in August 2013 with a 5 years old child. This was our second trip to Jersey and Golden Sands hotel.

On the first trip in 2011 we stayed in the room with a sea view; it was a nice room with a glorious view of the sea. There was a fold-down bed for our little one, so the three of us had enough space to sleep.

On our second trip we could only book an inland room as we left it too late to book our holiday. The inland room was definitely worse than the sea view room. The room was older and smaller. The partition was thin so we could hear our next door neighbour opening and closing their dor/wardrobe etc. On some nights we could also smell Chinese food coming from a restaurant nearby. And as the room faces the road, it was much noisier.

The rooms with sea view are more expensive than the inland room, but we think they are worth the price difference.
