I think that Luis and Didi were amazing staff members. I stayed in early March and the only thing on my whole trip that was negative was the UNGRATFUL girl friend I brought with me..... She made the trip a disaster. Upset about her breakup she was a disaster and made the trip a disaster. After I shipped her home.... More

We were drawn to this hotel by the very special price being offered ($89 per night), but was really wondering what we would find after reading various reviews. We had a hard tme finding it (follow signs for the Embassy Suites), and was really wondering when the bellboy at the Embassy Suites sent us around the corner through a bumpy... More

Me and my boyfried stayed at the Golden Sands villas on our trip to Puerto Rico. We were skeptical about staying outside of San Juan but was pleasantly suprised to find that Dorado was a more desirable destination as opposed to San Juan. Which we can say since we stayed in San Juan for a night also. My boyfriend took... More

My wife, 1 yr old daughter, and myself arrived at Golden Sands Villas with the idea that we were not going to be happy because of the reviews. When we arrived in our room we immediately had a maintainence issue. I called the front desk and within 5 minutes a technician was on scene and ready to work. Unfortunately the... More

We spent the past week at Golden Sands Villas. I'll start out with the good stuff. The staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. The pool area is large with lots of good lounging in the sun or shade. The views from each of our rooms on opposite sides were beautiful. Here we go with the not so good stuff:... More

We booked a holiday get-a-away on short notice. The San Juan area hotels were booked solid. The Golden Sands Villas are adjacent to the Embassy Suites hotel in Dorado, and share their amenities. We had a 2 bedroom condo, which was very spacious and comfortable. The only problem was the beach. Ocean access is blocked by a huge stone bulkhead.... More

This place is very difficult to find. I am really good about finding things but this place is a tuffy... Once there the parking was few and far between. The room was below average and needs to be redone. the beds were comfortable for a one night stay. If I would have gone here as my destination resort...I would have... More

This resort was pictured and appeared connected to Embassy Suites. The only thing connected was the pool (which was the best area of the complex.) Upon arriving, we were directed to a small lobby to check in. I couldn't believe I was in the right place! After negotiating our way into an over-crowded parking lot, we made it inside. Upon...

“Whether you book with Golden Sands or Aquarius Vacation Club, the main hotel system is Aquarius Vacation Club, request a room for that building, the view of the pool/beach are beautiful and they are in the middle of renovating the rooms (they are halfway done).”

“1) Put in the right address 2) There is no restaurant in the hotel and Embassy Suits might be too pricy. Luckily, there is a Walgreens and a mall about 10min from the hotel (on the main street) so you still have options.”
