Comfortable stay
Anisha, hk2 night trip
Good 6,0
Worn down Facility supported by quality service
Returned to Golden Sands after 8 years. It is a solid resort with good facilities, but it has worn down quite a bit. Despite the quality service from the staff, rooms and main facilities are in need of a renovation to meet the minimum Shangri-la standard.
Jason Jung Sun, kr3 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Family oriented
The hotel was very nice and the staff was great. This would be an amazing place for kids. However, for couple who no longer have young child, it was noisy and the ocean view is obscured with the elaborate kids pool. Very family friendly.

Friendly staff!
It’s my third visit to Golden Sands Resort and I have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. They are keen to resolve any problems that arise!
Maria, gb5 night trip
Good 6,0
Attention to detail required.
Leaking toilet took 2 days to repair and required complaints to duty manager who ultimately carried out the necessary repaid/replacement. Was locked out of my room on two occasions requiring me to go yo reception and obtain new keys.I was expected to go to reception to obtain the replacement. Noise from room above my was a problem which was not recertified despite requests. Breakfast was very good as were personnel. Shuttle bus to Georgetown and Gurney Plaza was a bonus..
