Was a nice place to stay. Staff is very helpful. The hotel is well maintained. Location is good. Food is also gr8. I thoughy i got a room with breakfast booked but saw only room booked thru Agoda. May be my mistake. My request to Agoda is to please put sepcificationa of room and whats included a bit clearly in the website. Its very difficult to make out between a 2 bedroom apt from a 2 room apt and a 2 room studio and b/f options. Seems other sites are hit elaborative. Overall thanks a lot.

Really great place especially for a lengthy stay.
I arrived well behind schedule, about four hours later than I was supposed to arrive and the staff greeted me warmly and took good care of me. There was some confusion at first because there are several Golden Sands buildings and my reservation said building 5 but My room was really in building 3. I was a little put off because they made it seem like I made a mistake when my reservation clearly said building 5. I was in the correct building shortly after, but at 2am anything can seem like a bigger deal than it actually is, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. I was not aware that they would take a 300 AED deposit, but that was not that big of a deal. What was a big deal was when I was checking in, they told me the deposit would be released immediately and checking out I was told it would take seven days. Basically they need to get their staff all on the same page and do some customer service training. I'll stress though, that these were small things and the staff was quite pleasant overall. The room was fantastic and with a living room, kitchen and washer/dryer, I could have spent a few weeks here and had all the comforts of home. It's not located that close to the newer parts of Dubai or the Burj Khalifa, but that's all a short taxi ride away. There was a close metro station, however, and old Dubai, which is very charming, is quite close, too. If I came to Dubai again, I would absolutely stay here and not look anywhere else.
