We've previously stayed at Sandy Point so this resort had something to live up to as we really liked that place.

Although overall this is a smaller resort and unit size a lttle smaller, can't quite put a finger on it but it just felt so good. The location is excellent - overlooking a park and can see Seaworld on the other side of Broadwater and not that far from other places.

The place was very clean and pretty well looked after (the odd mark/stain obviously caused by those who stayed in the past but not that bad).

If I were to pick one fault is there's no lift but it's no big deal as there's only 20 stairs to first floor, another 20 to top (2nd) floor.

We were so lucky to get a unit with two balconies both overlooking the park view (unit 6).
I am glad I didn't change to a ground floor unit (as had recent back surgery). Thank you to Donna for assistance with that and everything else. She is so nice to talk to! We also met Veronica on 7th October, she is usually at Sandy Point, also nice to talk to. We, unfortunately, "lost" a day and a half of our holiday which was a great shame as we would have loved the full week there (no fault of Golden Shores, blame Tiger Airways!).

Trust me, you will enjoy a stay there too.

Room Tip: Unit 6 (or the one above - don't know number) has excellent views

We have stayed here 3 times and love the location.
Donna on the front desk is the most beautiful, friendliest, helpful staff member.
Nothing is too much trouble.
A downside is having only 1 bathroom.
The laundry is also in the bathroom which is a bit of a pain.
The location is perfect - easy access to all the theme parks.
The pool and BBQ are great to relax.
Well equipped self contained units.
No lifts so ask for ground floor if stairs are difficult.
Undercover parking is a plus.
Straight across the road from the broad water.

Room Tip: No lifts so ask for ground floor if stairs are difficult.

We stayed in 2 units, one on the top floor and one on the bottom. Both were clean, and a great size for our family. Pool was freezing - even on a 32C day. But the spa was awesome and we went in everyday!
Car parking was great and safe - locked under building ... Close to everything. No more than a 15 min drive to get anywhere we needed, casino, theme parks, restaurants, shopping.
Lovely stay , thank you.

We stayed at the Golden Shores for a week we found the rooms excellent and very well equipped, staff were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately all the restaurant were downs the other end of the street but as we had a rental car it wasn't a problem we would definitely recommend Kokonut Willies for a meal, we would definitely stay there again.

Golden Shores was a very welcoming resort to arrive at for our weeks holiday on the Gold Coast. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We were pleased we hired a car to get around as it was slightly further away from the shops etc when staying in a self contained unit. Buses did seem regular on the nearby Gold Coast highway though. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very clean and plenty of space. However for a winter holiday (June) the sun left the front balcony at approx 9.30am so was very cold to come home to after being out and about most of the day. There was a heat pump but we were not meant to turn it up above 25 degrees C so it didn't warm the place up very well. Kitchen etc was well appointed with everything you need and the spa pool was nice at the end of a cool day. Bikes were available to use free of charge.

Room Tip: If travelling in winter, rooms closer to reception side get more sun.

Dear BuzzyBees18,
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us about Golden Shores Holiday Club. Great to hear that you had a car for a little more freedom but for those that don’t, the bus stop is only block away on the Highway where the buses run 24/7 all over the Gold Coast.
Buzzy we are happy to hear that you did enjoy your time with us and please let us know if we can help you with any further bookings.
