The Golden Sands Apartments are right on the beach at Main Beach. And by “right on the beach” I mean exactly that – there is no road or footpath between the apartments and the sand. And because it is in Main Beach it is a lot quieter than being in the middle of the Gold Coast, but still only a 5 minute walk to some great restaurants in Tedder Avenue and a leisurely half hour walk into Surfers Paradise. The apartments themselves, whilst not new, have everything you could possible want in them including a fully equipped kitchen and European laundry, whilst the premises have secure undercover parking, gym, pool and BBQ area. But best of all is the view from the apartment – a panoramic ocean view from the bedroom and lounge room and a view of the high-rise buildings and coastline all the way down to Burleigh Heads. We were even lucky enough to see some whales frolicking in the ocean on two of the days that we were there. Mandy at the front desk was friendly and obliging and we will certainly be staying there next time we go north for winter.

Room tip: all rooms have a sea view, but the ones on the south side have a great view down the coast towards Surfers Paradise and beyond

We travelled to the gold coast for a wedding at the Sheraton Mirage. We are a family of 5 and like to have enough room to spread out. The Golden Sands was fantastic. Close to Mirage, Sea world, easy beach access, plenty of room, and recently refurbished apartment. Management were most friendly and helpful for any questions and service requests. Close walk to eateries and cafes. Truly a wonderful location for our holiday. Close to patrolled swim zones, park with benches and play area. Short stroll to life saving club. Easy access to freeway. Would definitely stay again!

Room tip: North apartments don't get morning sun straight into bedrooms

We stayed here as a family over the Christmas break.

Having previously stayed here, we were all looking forward to our holiday. This feeling of excitement instantly left us as we entered into our room.

The room is in dire need of updating. Paint is peeling off most walls and fans, the chairs and stools are rusted, there are holes in walls, fans do not work, remote control's all required batteries and kitchen fry pans, saucers, etc. were all rusted and unusable.

What got us through the holiday was the view. The view is amazing. However, the view only gets you so far and when you're asking top $ you need to provide a standard of room that justifies the price. This was not the case.

Room tip: Ask for a refurbished apartment otherwise you will be disappointed

The location was excellent right beside a huge park and close to the surf club. The staff were excellent and could not have been more helpful. I would recommend these apartments as they are large all with great views. Shops and eating places within easy walking distance.

Room tip: All good, no bad ones.

We stayed in apartment 1201 for 7 nights over the New Years period.

Apartment was clean and tidy with refurbished kitchen and bathroom. The apartment on the whole was very clean and comfortable with nice furnishings etc. we stayed in the two bedroom apartment with 5 adults and all fit very comfortably.

The apartment complex itself has a very tidy pool and spa area. We couldn't fault management or the housekeeping service, as we had a faulty tap in the kitchen (nothing major it was just squirting a bit of water when turned on) we mentioned it to the front desk staff and they sent someone to replace the tap that day. The same occurred when we had asked for extra pillows and blankets. They were all sent promptly.

Very happy with our stay and would recommend the complex
