“Dream Holiday”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Our stay at the Golden Sands Hotel, and the location was excellent, our rooms looked out over the beach, so woke up an went to sleep looking out onto the beach, and with the sound of the waves rolling in. It started with a phone to Viktor in reservation, who was so helpful and friendly. As a disabled person I would recommend this hotel to anyone, the help and care I received was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are very clean and modern, not like some hotels. If your looking to chill out for a few days or a week, and want somewhere that's friendly, happy and you can feel at home, this is the place, but be prepared to go on diet when you go home, because the food is excellent, and they have a good variety to choose from. Can't wait til I can book again for next year. THANK YOU to everyone for making my holiday a dream

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a sea view, its worth it

Stayed for six nights at this hotel. I've been visiting Jersey for over 50years and it's fair to say many hotels on the island are now rather dated and can be rather disappointing,so please read all reviews very carefully. No matter how good the staff and food it doesn't compensate for shabby rooms, sleepless nights and hearing your neighbours every movement.
Fortunately no problems here at the Golden Sands.
Check in was quick, friendly and efficient, extra pillows requested were on the bed.
We stayed in room 207 with balcony and a sea view. Fair size room, very comfortable bed, modern bathroom and very clean. No air conditioning may be a problem in high summer in some rooms but plenty of fresh air here with the large patio doors. Some noise from neighbouring rooms but the hotel was very busy and it wasn't that bad.
Food in the restaurant was good, buffet breakfast ok, staff first class.
It's very easy to find fault but you would have to be very picky indeed to be unhappy here and the location is unbeatable.
We're Looking forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are best.

Hotel has an excellent location, staff are really friendly and the quality of dinner is very good.Less good is the quality of breakfast.

Bedrooms are very clean, beds really comfortable, and we had great views off the balcony. However, due to lack of any meaningful noise insulation between floors or between rooms the quality of sleep could have been better !!

Having said that, we would certainly consider another weekend at the hotel

My mother and I stayed for a week at this hotel and had a lovely time. The rooms were comfortable, modern and clean (excellent mattresses), the staff friendly and helpful and the food good. I loved being able to go down onto the beach right from the door of the hotel, and when we wanted to go into St Helier the bus stop is just across the road. We had a small medical emergency on the day we were flying home, necessitating a trip in an ambulance to the A&E department - and the staff were calm and helpful - thank you all!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are cooler and there wasn't much in the way of road noise. my room (214) was...

Returned to Golden Sands yet again nad can't await to return. Every visit improves on the last. Wonderful views, friendly helpful staff, good food. If you don't want toeat in hotel there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. Buses to St Helier from close to hotel. Hotel doesn't have it's own car park but there is a public car park across road. You can't get any nearer to beach wonderful to lay in bed and see sea and listen to sound of surf.

Room Tip: Sea view room a must to get full effect

Great hotel for a sightseeing or beach holiday in Jersey. Friendly staff, excellent in all departments; reception, housekeeping, bar and public areas; especially good resaurant. They perfectly adapted to our special dietary needs without any fuss at all over a whole week. Couldn't be closer to the beach and definitely worth paying extra for a room with a view across the bay and a balcony. Doesn't have a pool or fitness centre but who needs them when your right on the beach. The sands really are golden. Somehow I think we'll be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors, seaward side and towards the end away from the lift and aircon.
