We stayed on the 10th Floor, with a wonderful view of the ocean and Surfers Paradise. The staff Kylie & Graham were very welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much for them. We stayed for 6 nights, not long enough. The balcony view is to die for, enjoyed a few drinks overlooking the ocean after spending the days at theme parks. The apartment was very clean, close to many amenities. Teddar Ave was only a short walking distance, had many meals at the friendly restuarants. One restaurant in particular, the Blue Grotto had great cocktails and great service. Our holiday was a wonderful experience, much more than we anticipated. We would definately go back again. Thankyou once again Susan, Cassie & Leah

We stayed on the 12th floor north facing unit for a week which was definately not long enough.
the appartment would have to be the cleanest that we have stayed in so far as we have tried quiet a few 5 star resorts in surfers over the years.
from the balcony beach views to die for and after a long day we relaxed in the hot spa that could fit 12 adults easily.The facilities are great.The patrolled beach area is only 100mts north only couple minutes walk.Kylie and Graham are fantastic and will help you with every need they would have to be the most friendly resort managers we have ancountered on the coast.Highly reccomend golden sands for a geat family holiday.Thanks again Madonna Smith.

Room Tip: The north corner units are fantastic.

My friends and I stayed for a week in room 502 and the uninterrupted view of the beach was incredible! The location was exceptional & the staff went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Air con was a blessing in the heat & the underground car park was easy to navigate. Would definitely stay again & recommend it to anyone!

Friendly staff, close to everything, great amenities, secure, comfortable beds all including a million dollar view and perfect weather, a huge thanks was just what we needed. A+. Very large bedrooms and living areas with a view from every corner we felt like rockstars. Welcoming reception staff and very knowledgable of attractions and locations.

We needed a break away from our busy lives and arrived at Golden Sands very tired, Kylie is just lovely so very welcoming, informative and helpful, our apartment was ready and when we opened the door it was a OMG moment!! the view is absolutely stunning!! apartment very modern and clean, location perfect as we had most of our meals on Tedder Ave our favourite being the Blue Grotto where we dined 3 times. Highly reccommend this Hotel and we will most definitely be back to stay there!! probably next year, and will request (hopefully if it hasnt sold) our oceanview apartment on the 12th floor.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a oceanview apartment, just beautiful!

End of Year Work Forums can be a chore so we decided to take ours up to the Gold Coast to totally revitalise our vision. My job was easy. Find apartments as close to the beach as possible! I found the Golden Sands through Trip Advisor and read visitor comments. While I had contemplated other accommodation in the area a visit to the Golden Sands website pretty much sealed the deal. The Golden Sands is right on the beach with uninterrupted views to the North as it is the last apartment block on the beach at the north end of Main Beach. Tedder Avenue is 5 mins walk and the Southport Surf Life Saving Club is just down the road. Straight from the get go, Graeme and Kylie were right on the ball accommodating special requests and recommending transport options for our Forum at Griffith Uni. They have an ATM in their foyer (bonus) and we made good use of the pool, spa, steam room, gym, tennis courts and BBQ area. All our rooms were amazing and very spacious. We had a mix of 1, 2 & 3 bedrooms, all with spectacular views either to the north, east or south, and no noise from road traffic below. Beds were comfy and kitchens and bathrooms were clean, well organised and well equipped. I couldn't recommend the Golden Sands more highly. A big thank you to Graeme and Kylie for being such generous hosts. If only our Forum could be longer. No worries, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Both 2 bedroom ocean front and beach front apartments are ideal.
