Had the best holiday ever at Golden Sands, great location, close to restaurants, money changers, mini marts and the local bus! Facilities were great, used the gym everyday which water and fresh towels were provided. Breakfast was definitely a highlight of my day, freshly made omelettes and Asia dishes as well as cereal, toast and pastries. Wasn't very busy at this time which was a bonus as we could relax more and have room for us 10 to sit around the pool. Definitely coming back to stay here!”TripAdvisor
I've stayed in this beautiful resort three times in the past couple of years now and would always enjoy our stay. I will be visiting again this year in December. Definitely one of the best resorts with the best facilities, amazing rooms with gorgeous views and the pools are glorious and the resort is surrounded by many tourist attractions. If it’s your first time visiting they will show you around and give you some tips on what to do and see they are just so friendly which make my stay even better each time. The breakfast is very nice with a lot of food choice which makes it easy for some fussy eaters. Each time I stay with my family, wife and teenage daughter, they love it just as much as I do…Over all I cannot rave about this resort anymore it’s just so lovely, I would stay here any day. Definitely definitely definitely one to try, worth its money!”TripAdvisor
We stayed a week at the Golden Sands Resort and found it very relaxing. We had spent the previous week in the cities so need a rest, which the Golden Sands Resort provided. The room was light, clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was lovely and there was so many choices. The hotel was well situated for the night market and there was a food plaza about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The welcome we received when we arrived was friendly and the check in was done quickly. We would definitely stay here again”TripAdvisor
