“Golden Sands Corfu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

With my boyfriend we stayed here one week. First of all i want to say that the price we payed was high for what we got. We had room on the first floor and i think this rooms are not that great as the others on the second floor. So the room was clean but the bed was bad :D it makes a noises.. In the bathroom was new toilet and sink but the shower hmm horrible...so from the 5 point i will give the room 3..the hotel food for me was good...we had everyday melon and u can have ice cream too...hotel pool was in pretty good condition and also play ground...beach are very close to hotel and they are not overcrowded and clean but the sea is so cold here :( and also restaurants,bars,shops,doctor are not far away to golden sands...all in all good hotel to stay but probably in this beautiful area are better...

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Highly recommended, a super friendly/smiling and accommodating staff.

Good location in quiet surroundings, with everything near the hotel.

Great value for money.

All in all a wonderful holiday - thanks

This hotel claims to be a 3 star rating, but really it should be 2 stars at the most. The main reason for this was simply the poor standard of the buffet food and overall condition of the hotel. My partner and I suffered from constant diarrhoea and after finding mould on the bread we ate out for the remainder of our holiday which we hadn't budgeted for. On speaking to another couple we found to our horror that they had also complained about mould on the bread and their son had also suffering with diarrhoea. They like us paid for half board and so were forced to eat it as eating out is another expense. The buffet food is made in bulk and obviously on the cheap and just heaped out to keep up with demand. BAD POINTS: lack of variety in buffet menu (overcooked sprouts every night) bad food hygiene, run down condition of hotel rooms. GOOD POINTS: friendly & helpful staff, quiet location (away from bars) sea view.
If you have to book Golden sands- only go for B&B, this hotel is cheap for a reason!! You get what you pay for!!!

Beware of false postings on this hotel boasting how wonderful it is!

Room Tip: go for 3rd floor, as we were told 2nd floor shower curtain was covered in mould :-( Only prob is ho...

Dear **Karl C**

I was expecting this review from you. From the time you came here the only thing you were doing was complaints and bad attitude. My hotel staff tried to relax you but you had bad mood before coming here and until you left. Too bad. But you cannot say that we had mold on your bread and diarrhea from food!!!You disadvertise my hotel and this is not nice for my guests. And also I never heard that someone had diarrhea.And nobody forced you to do something you didn't want.And also the curtains were new and right away I changed them for you.Your child had peed the sheets and the mattress and we changed it also right away and I didn't ask you money for new mattress.Every day you were asking for 1 litre milk and I didn't have problem to give you.And also I gave you almost cheap to relax your departure date you and your family till 23:00.My hotel is not cheap and all my guests are satisfied.The next time do me the favour and pay a lot of money and book at a 5* hotel because you are 5* guest and we don't deserve you.Thank you for coming and I hope to see you again to our lovely hotel

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Golden Sands Hotel, We arrived in the evening after the restaurant had closed but they had put food aside for us which we thought was a great touch to welcome us after travelling,We had a sea view room on the second floor which was basic but clean there is a fridge in the room and a flat screen TV, the cleaners kept the room spotless with fresh clean towels daily and bedding changed regularly, there is a well stocked bar out by the pool and the staff are fantastic Alex and Katerina are very friendly and polite nothing is too much trouble, The pool area is well kept and laid out so you can enjoy the sun and shade at all time of the day,

Thank you Yannis and team for a fantastic holiday we will be back !!!

Room Tip: Book a sea view room on the second floor

We stayed win Golden Sands during the 2nd week in June. Usually I would opt for self-catering but knowing the resort and the location opted for half board at Golden Sands because the price was so good. The view from the second floor is excellent but what did take me by surprise was the friendliness of the staff. From reception to the dining areas, bars, and cleaning staff, everyone was charming. It made for a relaxing and enjoyable break. The food was so good I was up for breakfast every day - This has never happened before.

We were very disappointed with this hotel last year but due to its superb position we decided to give it one more try. We are so glad that we did. The room we had was at the front of the hotel with a sea and pool view and was very comfortable. We stayed on bed and breakfast and there was a good selection of food. George the waiter is great, full of fun and very cheerful. Yuannis, the owner's son, manages the hotel and he and Aspasia on reception are fantastic, always willing to go the extra mile to help. The pool was clean and there were plenty of sun beds along with some hammocks and swing settees. The pool bar serves nice lunches at reasonable prices and the staff are very friendly and attentive. We have booked again for September we were so pleased with our stay

Room Tip: Well worth going for a sea and pool view room
