Our 3 bedroom unit was spacious and perfect for our needs with 5 of us staying this trip. The unit had amazing uninterrupted beach views north from the living areas and south from the main bedroom and straight out to sea from the living room balcony. The unit was clean and had everything we needed. From the first phone call...

We have just spent four nights at Golden Sands (room 102). The building is an older one right on the beach. Our apartment very clean and spacious. Everything we needed and in working order. Pool, spa and gym all clean and well maintained. Location is right on the beach. Walking distance to Surfers Paradise. The real surprise was the Management....

We have just enjoyed a first class stay at these premises and our apartment was everything we could have wished for. We arrived late on a saturday and found the reception unmanned however an intercom call to a central control gave us the necessary codes to enter and obtain our key. As we entered the apartment we were "gobsmacked" by...

We recently enjoyed a week in a north facing beachfront apartment (Apt 1202) and the view was blissful. Not the most modern of appointments throughout, but it was more than comfortable. We enjoyed the fact that we could walk to everything - 7eleven across the street, Surf Club or Tedder Ave for meals or bottle shop to compliment our eating-in....

Rooms are in desperate need of maintenance. Even highly rated reviews comment on tired decor and lousy water pressure. Combine this with peeling paint, missing blinds, no black out curtains in East facing bedroom, an ensuite vent absolutely matted with filth and this place is chronically overpriced. Lovely outlook but there are so many better choices on the coast with...

Hello Jan Thank you for taking the time to review Golden Sands. In your previous e mails to me in which you took great lengths to list all of your complaints you advised nothing about water pressure or our pool which is always sparkling and enjoyed by all of our guests.

Just spent the most wonderful 7 days at this establishment. The views from our apartment was to die for. We've been to many other Resorts/ Apartments on the Gold Coast and have not enjoyed our stay to the degree that we did this time. When they say Absolute Beachfront you better believe it. It could not be any closer.It is...

Apartment 502 was worth every cent. Well equipped, comfortable, spacious and clean. Could not ask for a better view of the beach. Nights are bliss listening to the waves, with no traffic noise.
