I visited Golden Sands 1 week with my boyfriend in september 2013. We were really disapointed of the hotel and the location of the beach. The description told us that the beach would be 50 meters from the hotel. Totally a lie. Where the beach was supposed to be there were just a big scarp which you could not walk down from and there was definately a beach down there. The beach that actually were really nice was approximately 20-25 min walk from the hotel which was fine because we like to exercise, but when I think about all people who are disabled, children, elderly people... Not a fun distance to walk everyday when the informations said the beach was 50 meters away. The other thing that we were really disapointed about was the breakfast. It was actually so bad we bought our breakfast at a supermarket each day and ate it at our balcony because we don't let the small things ruin our trip. And how bad can i breakfast be? Well.... really bad. Anyways, I guess it might be a nice stay for people who like to walk a bit, because it took almost 20 min to walk to the village where there were nice restaurants. Especially The Balcony, we went there 2 times. Wonderful place and really nice staff. Otherwise, The Golden Sands is not anything I would recommend. Corfu is beautiful, nice weather and Korfu Town is really nice. But not Golden Sands.
