Spacious rooms with security guard at the door. This place is linked with Casa Rex nearby. Hot water takes a while to come on, but was great once it's running. Attached little pools were a great touch although it was too cold to swim. Comfortable beds with mosquito nets.

The staff at Casa Rex coordinate the apartments and they were so helpful. We needed an additional night due to LAM change of booking. Not only did they sort this out for us but they upgraded us from the chalet we originally booked to a top floor apartment. The view takes your breath away and we spent many an hour...

We stayed for two nights at these apartments, fantastically clean beautifully presented and fully stocked with the essentials. The pool was lovely and it has its own little pathway to the beach. The apartments had two double bedrooms each so you can fit 4 adults in here without being over crowded. Would definately stay here again!

Linked to the Casa Rex Resort in Vilanculos town, the Golden Sands is a lovely location. Ultra modern and clean as a whistle it has big spacious rooms with fully equipped kitchens and braai. It's fully self catering, no bars or cafes within walking distance. It has good housekeeping and laundry with gate guards and a resort manager. Dreadful wifi....

Went to Golden Sands for a week long holiday for a quick beach break. We had such a great time in the self catering apartments. The service from the staff was so efficient and friendly. They were very helpful with any requests we had, and this made our stay even better. Will definitely be back!!

Amazing apartments, great staff and great conditions! If you want some private getaway, this is a lovely option. If you come with your loved ones, as a couple or family, this is an interesting option...quiet and private, just on top of the beach and a big swimming pool.

We stayed on the ground floor of an apartment. We shared the communal area (that includes a fully equipped kitchen) with a couple from our tour group. Everything was spotless. The bathroom included a shower and bath. Nice smelling homemade soap is indicative of management's eye for detail. Our apartment had a beautiful view of the sea and swimming pool....

Clean, secure, good facilities, and reasonable price. On the north side of town with access to a clean and not too busy beach front, Golden Sands is a decent holiday villa rental for Vilanculo. No complaints about this place. It is connected to (owned by) Casa Rex. No complaints about this place, it is what it is.
