We stayed on the 2nd floor, unit 204 (3 bedrooms) The minute we walked into the unit, we were amazed at how spacious it was. The main bedroom and ensuite bathroom was amazing.

Stayed here with 6 others with the best view of the ocean ever! The apartment was cleaned to perfection, the set up of everything (furniture, bedrooms etc) was great and the ensuite was amazing! I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

We stayed here for the Gold Coast Marathon. Location is perfect. It is about 3km to the centre of Surfers Paradise. Close to Life Saving clubs for meals and a drink. There is a patrolled beach nearby for the family. The hotel backs on to the beach and has a park next door. Our room (803) was recently renovated and... More

This was our fourth stay. We go back for the views which are unbeatable. In our experience the rooms are a bit hit and miss. On this visit we were in 301 which has a very tired bathroom and lacked some basics in the kitchen such as a sharp knife smaller than a meat cleaver and a cloth to wipe... More

Our third year back to Golden Sands. The 14th floor apartment was spacious, clean and quiet, overlooking the beach. The only negative was having no towel rails in the bathrooms but an airing rack was provided on request. Having the use of a small shopping trolley to take groceries from the basement car park to the apartment was very handy.... More

Absolute gorgeous panoramic views, stayed in a beachfront apartment with south views. This place was amazing! Ideally situated for families that dont want the hussel and bussel of surfers, or a nice quiet, relaxing holiday on the beach with everything just a short stroll away. Only down fall to the apartment was a musky smell in the apartment on arrival!... More

My brother chose this 3 night getaway as a treat, so wasn't sure what to expect. Well it was just beautiful!The panoramic view from my room 1201 was awesome. As the apartments are right on the beach, there are no towers blocking that superb view. It is a short walk to Tedder Ave with yummy eateries, bottle shop, and supermarket.... More
