Our four day stay at Golden Sands was for a friends wedding. All of the guests had flown from round the country to converge on Yorkeys Knob region for the festivities. Admittedly, our accommodation was not the oldest, or the most dated (think 70s tropical), but, could certainly be improved upon. It started with the booking process, thru a holiday...

My wife & I stayed at Golden Sands over Christmas. We keep coming back here because of the location and facilities. Located at the quiet end of Yorkey's Knob the complex is 50m across a nature strip of paperbark gums to the beach. No road in front. The accomodation is all apartment living with full kitchens. There is a really...

My friend and I booked a seven night stay in a two bedroom apartment through a well-known on line booking agency. When arriving at the resort, we found the owners, Ali and his wife, were very friendly and the pool was nice. However when we arrived at the apartment we found it was very dirty. My guess was it had...

We have just spent 3 weeks in a one bedroom apartment at Golden Sands. Everything was great, from our lovely light, bright, sparkling clean apartment to the beautiful heated lagoon pool and the 2 minute walk to a pristine beach. The very friendly manager Ali and his lovely wife couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our...

Very quiet location, spacious self contained rooms with balcony and car park in the basement. A short stroll through the back yard and the beach is right there. Anyone staying here should consider renting a car to get to shops, restaurants, cairns and where ever else you want to go.

My room is beautiful. So quiet and peaceful. It is a one bedroom apartment, and I couldn't be happier in it. I would love to live here permanently. Access to the beach is only a two minute walk. Lovely restaurant right next door for breakfast and dinner - Echos. And the talking cockatoo is gorgeous! Highly recommend this place.
