We stayed here as a family over the Christmas break. Having previously stayed here, we were all looking forward to our holiday. This feeling of excitement instantly left us as we entered into our room. The room is in dire need of updating. Paint is peeling off most walls and fans, the chairs and stools are rusted, there are holes...

The location was excellent right beside a huge park and close to the surf club. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful. I would recommend these apartments as they are large all with great views. Shops and eating places within easy walking distance.

We had a room on the 11th floor which had views right up and down the beach. It was stunning just to sit on the balcony and enjoy the fresh air and peace only the ocean can give you. The room was 2 bed with a full kitchen & 2 bathrooms. All were exceptionally clean and well equipped. The pool...

What an amazing stay we had. We were on the 14th floor Beach front south apartment with such gorgeous views. Pool and spa area was a favorite for our 5 year old and we spent lots of time there. Beach access directly from hotel was a bonus - we couldn't see a man made track but who needs one, your...

My Family and I (including my parents) spent a week here, and I now have children willing to give up Christmas presents to come back. It is central to almost everything, right on the beach, and just a short walk to cafés and restaurants and convenience stores. We had apartment 1204 and my only criticism was that it could have...

We recently stayed at the Golden Sands and found the whole experience very good. Mandy is very helpful and approachable. We stayed in 1503 which faced north but had a great view both inland and over the ocean. The room was clean and well equipped, however, the bathrooms were a little dated. The apartments are about a 20 minute drive...

Staying at Golden Sands for 10 days for a family holiday. Booked a 2 bedroom ocean front on Northern corner of building which was definitely the best choice! Floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views with literally nothing between us and the beach! North side may be too hot in middle of summer, but perfect now. I requested a high...

We spent three days at the Golden Sands - the location on the beach is hard to beat but the building is old. We were put in unit 1303 and requested a change after one night. 1303 has multiple faults - the ensuite taps barely dribble, the kitchen and bathroom joinery is rotting, everything was in need of a massive...

This is the best spot in Main Beach. Right on the beachfront, no roads to cross and smack bang next to a park. Just perfect. Fantastic people on the front desk who really can't do enough for you. Beachfront tennis court, pool, spa and a gym and steam room. We stayed in 503 on the 5th floor which is a...
