The rooms are old and dirty and there is no beachfront whatsoever you can not see any of the beach at this place. The pool was ok but dirty, Wouldn't recommend staying unless you have to. The complex is quiet I guess because of location. Wasn't happy with it and certainly wasn't value for money

Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor (lift or stair access). The balcony did have views towards the ocean with the other side towards neighbouring block and apartments. In saying that though the morning sun was lovely sitting out having breakfast. The unit's 2 bedrooms both have their own bathrooms. With bedroom views...

The "new" manager- new to us!- is Roy. He did everything he could to make our week long stasy great. Apartments are excellent- washing machine, dryer, large balcony, good sized bedroom, living room and kitchen area. Shower room -no bath. Local restaurants very good- we did some eat-outs and some eat-ins. Takeaway of proper meals means you can sit on...

Very disappointed in our stay here. We stayed a few years back and had heard the location was great for windsurfing and kitesurfing (which it is!). There was also a little restaurant where we could have a late afternoon drink and the staff were great. Don't expect any of that! No restaurant or bar and no facilities other than the...

It has been a couple of years since we stayed at the Golden Sands Resort; the place looks quite fresh, Roy our manager was great to deal with and the stay was very pleasant indeed. The exterior has had a spruce up; the two units I have been staying in had fresh tiles and the tired furniture has been updated;...

I booked a room at the Golden Sands Beachfront Resort through HotelClub.com in January 2011 for the weekend of the Cairns Challenge triathlon race (5 months ahead of the race). I received an email confirming my reservation and my credit card was debited for the full cost of the stay. I called the resort the day before I was due...

Large, clean apartment which was bright and airy. Owners were really friendly and accommodating. Free wifi. Large balcony with nice, comfortable furniture - makes a pleasant change from plastic ones.

We stayed at the Golden Sands for 7 nights in january 2011. The whole experience was wonderful. The owner (Roy) and staff were very helpful in every way. The accomodation was of a good standard. The pool and gardens, outstanding. The Waterdragon restaurant offers haute cuisine. We highly reccomend staying here.

This property is located in a quiet area in Yorkey's Knob, and is in a convenient location if you have your own car. The sign on the front says "Holiday Apartments" rather than "Beachfront Resort" which I think is a more accurate description. To me, "resort" implies luxury and facilities that these apartments don't have. As others have said, the...
