Golden Sands Apartments by Sol Resorts
Reviewed 15 January 2014

We stayed for almost a week at this fantastic place. Because it's a little out of the centre you could choose to either walk to a restaurant at one of the resorts at the beach or go by car. Walking back isn't an option, but you could easily grab a taxi.
The bungalow is really spacious and everything you need is available (big refrigerator!). The pool is really nice as you can see at the pictures posted and you're directly at the beach.

We originally booked the Golden sands challet but on arrival were told that as the holiday season was nearly over we were upgraded to Goldan sands apartment. What fantastic holiday that was! Location- wonderful,best views in Vilanculos, very comfortable rooms with everything one needs for self catering and we were so looked after! Jane- who is in charge of golden sands even provided our daughter with medicine for her car sickness on the way back- and she was absolutely fine. Thank you so much!

We stayed in one of the chalets and it was really good value for money. good lay out, tasty decor and impeccably cleaned every single day. 24 hour security, and the manager Jane made us feel really looked well after. it was nice to be able to cook for ourselves when we wanted and go for a good meal just drive 3 km down the road and then you are at Casa Rex, which has excellent food.
Finally and of course the reason for coming all the way to Vilanculos - the beach and the view over the Archipelago was just stunning. This is surely worth a warm recommendation.

This nice place is in between hotel and selfcatering, you have your own kitchen, and you have your bed made every day. Wonderful little houses, with room for three, aircon. Easy acces to Archepilagos, and diving in two mile reef

Golden Sands is a beachfront, self-catering accommodation just outside the town of Vilankulo consisting of 2 2-bedroom apartments with sea views and several smaller chalets set behind the apartments. Because it is a bit out of the center of town and a self-catering property, a vehicle is necessary to get around and affords you much more flexibility. My husband and I drove from Pretoria to Vilanculos to check in at Casa Rex where we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. We were accompanied to Golden Sands where we were orientated with the property and surrounding area and introduced to the on-site staff. Golden Sands has 24 hour security and daily housekeeping, which did an amazing job. We stayed in the downstairs 2-bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment that had air conditioned bedrooms, a modern kitchen with a 4 burner cooktop, oven, full size refrigerator, and was fully stocked with essential dishes and cooking tools, and a patio overlooking the infinity edge pool and gorgeous sea. A short walk down a brick paved path led directly to the beach that you only shared with local fishermen and the occasional passer-by. For meals we enjoyed having the option of dining in local restaurants or bartering with local fishermen and produce stands at the market and cooking meals at our lovely home-away-from-home. Overall it was an impeccable property affording plenty of privacy but we still felt very well taken care of and looked after.
