“Romantic 50th Birthday visit to the island for my wife.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Gota say - research pays off. The reviews you read here are true. This hotel was excellent. Set in a beautiful bay, right up against the sea wall walk way alongside great restaurants (see review for Crap Shack and Pizza Express). There was only a slight delay getting into the room (we needed the rest owing to the early hours flight). We found reception to be most helpful every time we needed them. The room (412) was at the rear (I just couldn't get a sea view one as it was fully booked). Quiet main road outside presented no noise issue at all. The room was a quirky layout (top floor) but very well appointed - tidy and clean - fresh starched sheets (beautiful to slip in between). Great shower (pressure) and refreshments provided. TV adequate channels.
Restaurant (we used this on our 2nd night - had to book) has a balcony section running the length which provides stunning views of the bay right on the sea wall walk way. The breakfast was cereal or cooked full (plenty of fresh hot food all the time). the evening meal menu changes each night and there is a swap over option (pick and mix with a small charge). the food was excellent - can't fault it in any way. the fish you just know was fresh that day caught. Quality wine selection too.
The bar remained open (for the football) and was well stocked. For those of you that have a later departure, there is a guest shower facility should you use the beech after you've left your room.
The staff were fantastic. Multi lingual and always happy to go that extra mile to make your stay the best it can be.

If i had any criticism at all it would be that the corridors on the top floor were stifling hot in the evening and I suspect that the storage heaters were not adjusted for the brilliant weather we had.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room. Go for a swim in the ocean. Take a walk to the church and the path onwards for...

I'm a local Jersey resident and we stayed for my birthday celebrations. From start to finish all staff were very friendly and helpful - special note to the new reception lady from England with her friendly welcome (sorry I didn't catch your name). We had a Sea-view balcony room on the top floor. Huge bed, spacious room, perfect balcony, TV, tea and coffee facilities, shortbread biscuit treats, high-end shampoo and shower gel provided. At high tide it felt like we were on a cruise ship. My only comments would be: the room was very hot and A/C or a fan needed; complimentary water in the room would be nice; and a DVD player would be a bonus. Had a fantastic 5 course dinner. Friendly staff went the extra mile and arranged a 'happy birthday' decoration on my dessert plate - thanks Alex! We payed £207 for the room, dinner and breakfast. The best price in comparison to other St Brelade's hotels in the bay. But this hotel lacks a pool/spa/health facilities and it's own private parking (pay cards needed in the public car park opposite) - as most other hotels there have - BUT I HIGHLY recommend the Golden Sands room and hotel. We will definitely be back! Thank you Golden Sands.

Spent 4 nights at the golden sands which was our 5th visit. It jousts gets better every time w e visit. My daughter and I come every year to jersey for a quiet, peaceful relaxing break and that's exactly what we get. The room 401 was excellent, clean spacious and very comfortable. Superior, sea view and balcony. The food in the sands cafe is tasty and very reasonable. Breakfast very good. The staff are always very helpful and professional and polite. We will be visiting again soon!

Room Tip: Always choose a sea view and balcony, for views and hear the sea as you wake in the morning.

A lovely seaside hotel, with great views out over the splendid beach in the bay of St Brelade's. A very good bar lounge area with nice views too and helpful and courteous staff serving drinks from coffees to cocktails. Food is typically good with lots of variety, coffee exceptional, biscuits on the side are wonderful. The bar can get very busy at lunch time with non residents. A great place to unwind after a walk along the fabulous beach whilst enjoying the view from the elevated terrace. Very clean and comfortable and highly recommend.

I had a very small room, which was tight, but I don't spend there too much time anyway. The location is just great and the kitchen is terrific. There is no need to go to the restaurants nearby. The staff is also very nice.

Room Tip: get a room with sea view
