Golden Sands Holiday Apartments
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

You won't find a better spot in main beach . We've stayed in many places but golden sands is close to the surf club beaches and Tedder avenue .

We always take a 3 bedroom apartment and 1503 is our favorite . As the apartments are privately owned some have better quality furniture then others.

Kylie and Graeme are fantastic hosts

Stylish apartments with plenty of room. Lounges could be replaced with real lounges not outdoor lounges... Not very comfy. The bathrooms are very dated but the views and price make up for that. Walking distance to many restaurants in main beach. Wireless internet was available for purchase but was a waste because the signal was so patchy. Secure parking under complex but be careful it's clearance is 2.0m we just fit under in our 2012 Toyota Hilux with the arial just hitting. Well equipped kitchen. Pool and spa facilities are clean and well maintained. I would stay again when back in the area.

Thank you once again Kylie and Graeme for another wonderful stay - very much appreciated !
Kylie and Graeme were the perfect hosts - always smiling and ready for a chat. Anything that we enquired about (buses, dinner venues etc) were forthcoming and delivered in a friendly manner
We were fortunate enough to watch several pods of whales from our 8th floor window - just fabulous
Definitely a return is being planned . . .
Once again thank you :-0)

We stayed here as part of 3 night family holiday in Queensland. We booked a 3 bedroom apartment. Due to our overnight flight we arrived very early at the hotel. The utterly gracious Kylie informed us that our apartment was (not unexpectedly) not yet ready. However, if we wanted to go for breakfast and come back in 15 minutes, she would have it all ready for us. What a star.

The apartment was huge and the views from the two separate balconies were fabulous overlooking the neverending stretch of beach. The apartment had everything we needed and was situated just a short drive from Surfers Paradise and literally a short hop to Sea World.

The apartment was very clean. It was so big, that easily 12 people could have slept there.
There is a very large shopping centre about 5 minutes drive from the hotel where there is a large supermarket and everything else you may need.

The hotel provided a wonderful home for our short stay on the Gold Coast. I would definately recommend this hotel and would also very happily return.

We stayed here recently, we were in a beachfront room on level 11, the room was great with fabbo views and the sunrises are spectacular!
Only problem was the main bathroom drain was not working properly so the bathroom flooded a bit which you would not expect at this level but the managers apologised a bit, still not quite right though. We could still use the second shower....
We will be back however and hopefully these problems will be resolved by then.
Everything is close, and Main Beach is so much more refined than Surfers so worthwhile, Tedder Ave restaurants are 10 mins walk and good, best little café at Beaches off Tedder who make great coffee, papers are next door and great brekkie
fun

Room Tip: beachfront is the go if you can, stay about level 8-11 as otherwise too high to see the people on th...

Our family recently stayed at the Golden Sands while visiting Queensland. The ocean views are spectacular, and the apartment was spacious with plenty of room for a family to relax in. Located within a few minutes drive of SeaWorld and freshly caught seafood, and walking distance to local restaurants and cafes and the beach on your doorstep, it is in a very convenient position. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Both Kylie and Graeme made us feel relaxed, comfortable and well informed about what the local area has to offer. We would definitely recommend Golden Sands as a great family escape.

Room Tip: request a room on higher floors with views of the ocean
