Our family of 3 stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 6th floor from the 8th - 13th January, 2015. We were happy with pictures and features shown on the website but were gobsmacked as we entered the apartment to see views of the ocean we did not expect. The living room area and main bedroom , in particular...

Let me start from the beginning. I booked this accommodation 5 months prior through an internet travel place, on the proviso that we were to stay in Apt 503 (on hearing such rave reviews on this room on Trip Advisor). So it was left at that. Then a few days before we were to leave I rang Golden Sands just...

Hello Linda I am not aware of when you stayed or in which apartment as you do not have a surname on your review. I am really gobsmacked that you found Golden Sands to be " Smelly, unclean, run down." We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and I am at a loss as to why we were not informed about...

Golden Sands is located right on the beach and is conveniently located near the Southport Surf Club and the precinct around Tedder Avenue. Being at the top end of the coast it has great access without the traffic/ tram congestion around Surfers and Broadbeach. Perfect for families. The amusement parks are easily reached from this location. The rooms were comfortable...

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. We loved the apartment (Room 1003) but agree with another reviewer that the bed in the main bedroom needs to be replaced. Other facilities such as the gym and the pool were fantastic for the reasonable price that we paid. Our view looking north was great and the easy walk to the Main...

We stayed here for three nights in room 1003. The positives were the extremely spacious, clean & tidy unit, absolute beachfront location and walking distance to the shops & restaurants of main beach. The negatives were the unit itself is fairly dated and the bed in main bedroom really needs to replacing. Overall though I thought good value.

Golden Sands is the perfect spot for total relaxation. We have stayed in Apartment 503 twice now and I have to say that it is pure luxury from the moment you walk in the door.
