Golden Sands Holiday Apartments
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I love Golden Sands apartments!!! Instant warm feeling upon checking in. Kylie instantly makes you welcome with an earthy feeling. Apartments are simply gorgeous with amazing views!! I stayed in oceanfront one bedroom with views of all the beaches along the coast. Amazing good energy and very comfortable. Amazing views from bedroom also.Wake up to beauty pure ocean views. Peaceful very private. (Simple security car park with lift, trolleys ,spare carpark outside.Easy access to beach). The furniture is modern and very comfortable settings, amazing open kitchen(with the views, yes). I will book every holiday at Gold Coast at Golden Sands Apartrments. I travel lots with my work and Golden Sands is now my favorite. Right outside, there is a walking path with 7am powerwalk (free) everyday, LIfesaving club a minutes walk with great breakfasts(although I prefer to eat in to enjoy my stunning views.) Also Yacht club round the corner and also upmarket restaurants 2 mins walk away and BWS for good wines. Close to Seaworld close to everything. If you want freedom and privacy and beauty with good rates, then Go Golden Sands. Ill be back there next week.

Room Tip: I have not seen all the rooms yet I believe that the rooms are all very similar yet different floors...

My darling wife Nita & I were given the sad news three days prior to our holiday at Golden Sands that she had gallbladder cancer, so we needed to reflect our thoughts and lives around the few short days we were staying that weekend. We invited our children & grand children to come for lunch on the Saturday & decided to let them know the news directly after lunch which we did, and it was a sombre atmosphere but picked up incredibly with grand children wanting to sing to their Nanny, then a walk along the beach together before sending them off home.

We ordered dinner in our unit for the night & just sat around looking at the waves til we could'nt see any, but could hear them rushing to the shore & out again!!

We will cherish this time always!

We thank Kylie for selecting the room for us with such breathtaking views!

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the south are quieter, larger & sunnier.

From the moment we were greeted by the staff and being over an hour early to checkin, we were welcomed to checkin, as we walked through the door and began to look through the floor and to ceiling window that gazed out upon the fantastic sight of surfers catching a mid morning surf. The room was presented immaculately and everything we needed was always at hand. The pool, spa, steam room area was fantastic, clean, and able to be used by all from Mums and Dads to the kids, the tennis court was also great to use. A short stroll to the shops and a short drive to other shopping areas. The rooms were nice and quiet and didn't hear any other neighbors.

Overall the trip was great and we are certainly going to be staying there where we travel back again from Melbourne

Room Tip: Rooms on the mid to upper levels facing the surf are fantastic

Apartment we stayed in was clean and comfortable and really modernized and lacked nothing. Kylie was cheerful and helpful. The building is getting on in years but wonderfully maintained and really clean. Pool area was great as was the steam room and gym. The location right on the beach with fabulous views would take a heck of a lot beating anywhere in the world.

Room Tip: We asked for a north easterly aspect as it was pretty cold at that time.

We have been staying at Golden Sands on special occasions for more than 10 years. It is affordable luxury! Being an older apartment building it has loads of room and the most beautiful views imaginable. Most of the units have been renovated with couches and beds being really comfortable (We are really fussy about these things).
Graeme and Kylie are so welcoming and helpful - it really added to our stay. We just love it!

Room Tip: higher floors have slightly less surf noise.

Fabulous views, clean and tidy and great value at the time we stayed (Aug 2012). The new managers could not have been more helpful and were happy to recommend local restaurants to our taste. Any problem with the unit was attended to immediately. We will definitely stay at Golden Sands again.

Room Tip: Corner Suites on the upper levels have uninterrupted views of the ocean and coastline.
