I have stayed at the Golden Sands 8 times over the last 20 years, as a child myself with my parents, with my wife and now with our child, and every time we find it hard to leave. For the price you can't beat the location and veiws with very friendly staff.

This is the third time we have stayed at Golden Sands and each time we are blown away by the beautiful location, breathtaking views, roomy and comfortable apartment and the friendly and helpful managers. It was no trouble for Kylie to help me with flight check in and taxis. Nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be back! Thanks, again, for a fabulous break. See you soon!

You won't find a better spot in main beach . We've stayed in many places but golden sands is close to the surf club beaches and Tedder avenue .

We always take a 3 bedroom apartment and 1503 is our favorite . As the apartments are privately owned some have better quality furniture then others.

Kylie and Graeme are fantastic hosts

Stylish apartments with plenty of room. Lounges could be replaced with real lounges not outdoor lounges... Not very comfy. The bathrooms are very dated but the views and price make up for that. Walking distance to many restaurants in main beach. Wireless internet was available for purchase but was a waste because the signal was so patchy. Secure parking under complex but be careful it's clearance is 2.0m we just fit under in our 2012 Toyota Hilux with the arial just hitting. Well equipped kitchen. Pool and spa facilities are clean and well maintained. I would stay again when back in the area.

Thank you once again Kylie and Graeme for another wonderful stay - very much appreciated !
Kylie and Graeme were the perfect hosts - always smiling and ready for a chat. Anything that we enquired about (buses, dinner venues etc) were forthcoming and delivered in a friendly manner
We were fortunate enough to watch several pods of whales from our 8th floor window - just fabulous
Definitely a return is being planned . . .
Once again thank you :-0)

We stayed here as part of 3 night family holiday in Queensland. We booked a 3 bedroom apartment. Due to our overnight flight we arrived very early at the hotel. The utterly gracious Kylie informed us that our apartment was (not unexpectedly) not yet ready. However, if we wanted to go for breakfast and come back in 15 minutes, she would have it all ready for us. What a star.

The apartment was huge and the views from the two separate balconies were fabulous overlooking the neverending stretch of beach. The apartment had everything we needed and was situated just a short drive from Surfers Paradise and literally a short hop to Sea World.

The apartment was very clean. It was so big, that easily 12 people could have slept there.
There is a very large shopping centre about 5 minutes drive from the hotel where there is a large supermarket and everything else you may need.

The hotel provided a wonderful home for our short stay on the Gold Coast. I would definately recommend this hotel and would also very happily return.
