          what's the difference between the deluxe seafacing and executive seafacing rooms? The published size seems similar

          View, view, view...... Executive seafacing rooms are located on high floor, seaview totally will not be blocked by coconut trees. Deluxe seafacing rooms are located on 4th floor and below, some view might be blocked by trees.

          Is there an option to have breakfast at sister hotel next door if staying at Golden Sands?

          I'm not sure if there is a room package with this option - you'll have to ask the hotel. But if you choose to walk in as a paying diner, I'm sure you won't be turned away.
