Location & pool area
I thought that I would give the Golden Sands another go after a disappointing stay 18 months ago. Big mistake ! Fridge not working & it took until 3pm the following day to have the problem rectified. Vertical drapes broken & unable to open them, not one coat hanger in the wardrobe ? No remote control for TV, no exhaust fan in bathroom, no dishwasher. Lovely location & gardens, but unfortunatly the unit that I was allocated was shabby.

Comfy room. Lift for luggage. Great pool

Quiet comfortable and clean
Stay was good. Did day trips in and around cairns for the 10 days we stayed. The pool was really nice in the afternoons and the beach was only 1-2 min walk. Parking is great and a lift for luggage and pram was awesome.

Basic accommodation in put of the way location

Quiet location
Overpriced self contained 1 and 2 bedroom apartments near a beach which you should think twice about swimming in because of the abundance of sea snakes, potentially fatal stinging jellyfish and salt water man-eating crocodiles. Apartments vary in quality and amenities. Some are very basic with insufficient/inadequate furnishings. We were a family of two, and in the two bedroom apartment there was one small couch and a few chairs. The apartment is advertised as being suitable for up to four persons but the furniture in the sitting room barely accommodates two persons. The "free" Wifi signal is so intermittent and so weak as to be a waste of time, effectively unusable. Forget about downloading anything but emails, and barely that. The restaurant was "temporarily closed", although the promotional material made available by the internet booking sites does not reveal this. A more accurate description would be that the restaurant "is closed, never to reopen". Checkout time, as we discovered to our considerable inconvenience, is a non-negotiable 10 am. With the airport 20 minutes drive away, and no major shopping or recreational activities any closer (except possibly fishing on the beach), leaving your bags at the hotel after checkout until your afternoon or evening flight is not really a viable option. You will definitely need a car if you stay at Golden Sands apartments. Better to give them a miss and stay in the city centre or head for Palm Cove where there are far greater tourist amenities and accommodation of better value than this.

Location was ok, room a little disappointed

Location access to beach, undercover parking
Stay was okay bit disappointed with room, quite dated the sliding door to bathroom needs replacing bit old. Bed not very comfortable and cane furniture in lounge room? Kitchen equiped okay no dishwasher, basic essentials for cooking. Great access to beach and pool area looked nice.

A wonderful holiday

ambience, access to beach and pool, great room
The apartment was well presented and very clean. The view to the ocean, pool and trees was beautiful and the whole area was restful. The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows! The complex was quiet and staff were very helpful.

Everything was great

The room was very spacious
It was a nice place to be and rethink as we are locals and I felt like I was in a different world which was great as I had lost my mum on Xmas day . It was so nice to be able to book in somewhere at such late notice .

Well-appointed apartment

Quiet location
spent a week at this apartment resort and have no complaints. the apartment was a good size and very well laid out. we had easy access to the pool and the beach was just a short walk away. there are limited amenities in the resort town itself, but a large shopping centre a short drive away. it's also only a few km to cairns, and an easy drive further north or into the atherton tablelands, so an excellent base for sightseeing.
