I had high hopes for Golden Residence as a result of the excellent reviews but I must say that in some things the hotel is great but in many aspects it is lacking. Starting off with the room. We had a suite in block B and due to the furniture and fittings It felt soulless, like

We revisited taking some friends. Always a chance that things are not so good but have no fear it was as wonderful as the last time. We have visited later in the year so the weather was not perfect but still mostly warm and sunny.

Do the hotel provide towels for by the pool?
Hi. Yes they do provide towels for the pool. You get these tools at the reception and you can change them as often as you want. Good service.

Hi, i would say 10-15 min walk. It involves in having to walk down a steep hill with steps and then through a tunnel like cave. The beach though is not sandy, it is rocky with some walking boards placed down in the middle to make a walkway. These can be dangerous as a few came loose and was sticking up as my wife caught her footwear into one of them and cut the bottom of her 3 toes!!

"In block A you are thurther away from the restaurent, and the pool, but you are closer to the shops, by minutes each way"
"Block C is, in my view, the best of the 3 blocks"
"Block A near the pool and breakfast area."
"We traveled with a 15 month old baby. So the apartments with two rooms (b -building) are a good value."
"Try for block B or C for the better sea views"
