          Amazing Hotel & so close to everything”

          This is my 1st stay at Golden Sands and I love the place. If you're after great value for money, this is the place. The staff are so very helpful & friendly, you couldn't put them wrong. It's so close to the beach area, there are great eateries around the place and many entertainment venues and bars within 2-3 minute walk. 5 min tuk tuk or motorbike to the markets and 3 minute walk to all the bars & eateries at the beach. I love Sihanoukville because there's so much going on & Golden Sands Hotel made the stay so enjoyable. the pool was a lovely and refreshing & my room overlooked it. Great to stay: thanks to all at GSH.

          Hard to find better”

          Good quality rooms and service

          Whenever I feel the need to escape from Phnom Penh for a few days and I choose to go to Sihanoukville then I invariably stay at the Golden Sand. I have been going there several times a year for quite a few years now and have never had an experience there to provoke me into considering staying somewhere else. For the price one pays to stay here everything is superb. The rooms are large, light and airy and well equipped and serviced. A big plus for me is that I hate, and avoid if at all possible air conditioning and in the Golden Sand I can in so far as the large sliding windows in the room are screened so mosquitos are not a problem. The dining area is pleasant and buffet breakfast more than adequate. The pool is very nice but it can be noisy due to the excited children of the daily influx of bus tour asiatic tourists. More than anything else the staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpfull. While things remain as they are I will, without hesitation, continue going back here.

          Great Location / Great Swimming Pool”

          Location - walking distance to beach, bars and restaurants....Swimming pool - good size and great for swimming laps...Breakfast - good variety for westerners and asians.

          I stayed in the standard room for $40 (USD) including breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. I'm not a big fan of having the shower water going direct onto the bathroom floor though. I had to put a towel on the floor to soak up the excess water. No big deal but ask for and extra towel to have on the floor. I had a pool view and ocean view which was awesome. (room 334 side) I ended up upgrading to the Deluxe room for an extra 5 bucks. It came with a bathtub with the shower in the bath. The staff were all pleasant and helpful from the reception area, restaurant, security, cleaners and baggage guys. The price range was about right for this hotel. I believe the hotel is bordering 4 star rather than 3 star. I would definitely recommend the Golden Sand Hotel and I would stay here again.

          Golden Sands was a delight to stay at”

          The hotel staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble, every staff member was quick to attend to our groups needs and extremely friendly.

          We..a group of four women, stayed at Golden Sands on the recommendation of a couple living in the area. I usually prefer smaller hotels or guest houses, and Hotel Sands is a large, opulent looking place...lots of wooden elephants, carved Chinese style furniture etc in the lobby, but as the guest house I had chosen was closed for the wet season, we booked The Golden Sands for three nights and were very happy with our stay. The rooms were big enough with comfortable beds and seating, lights that worked and tea/coffee making (something that is not always available in Cambodia and which we Aussies really appreciate.) the breakfasts were a highlight of our stay, such a lot of choice, delicious fruit, hot food and pastries..the made to order omelettes were always food, no complaints there. Every staff member we met was friendly, helpful and attentive, going out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Oh, and the pool was good too, we had a few dips which were most welcome after a day of walking.

          great comfortable large hotel w/ buffet breakfast”

          large and spacious room with a nice ocean and pool view, good buffet breakfast with cambodian, vietnamese, and western cuisine, friendly staff..

          We had a wonderful experience at golden sands hotel. The check-in and out procedure were fast even if i did the booking online. The location was good, close to the beach and restaurants. The staffs were friendly and attentive. Our deluxe room was spacious and comes with a nice view of the hotel pool and the ocean. The buffet is good enough for a 3-star hotel. They have a big and nice pool, they also provide free towels for guests using it. Its only downside is they dont implement the strictly swimming attire policy in the pool so you would see some tourists dipping in jeans and casual shirts. Its a wonderful experience overall.

          Nice Hotel at a great price.”

          Clean rooms, nice big pool, friendly helpful staff, restaurants, bars on the beach.

          The Golden Sand Hotel is a great place to bring children at a budget price. The rooms are spacious and clean with free wifi and a good selection of channels on the tv. The restaurants on the beach have good to great food both western and asian. Hotel is a 100 meter walk to the beach. Be prepared to talk tuk tuks and hawkers down in prices. Waterfalls can be seen about a hour tuk tuk ride away.

          Swimming pool

          We booked into Golden Sands hotel for three nights. It is a very nice hotel and in a good location. The reception staff are great and very helpful. Our room was large and very clean. It came with aircon, plasma tv, safe, great showeroom, wifi, and a large comfy bed. It also has a wonderfully large swimming pool, this was amazing because sadly we hated the beach. The beach has way too many hawkers who won't take no for an answer; we left after 15 minutes because it was intolerable. It is much better to head to the backpacker road, only 5-10 minutes away; you get no hassle at all and good food and drinks at reasonable prices. Breakfast was included with our room however, sadly it wasn't great. It is a buffet, but most of the plates were empty and tables were left uncleared, while two members of staff chatted away oblivious to the fact there was hardly any food left. We know we are in Cambodia and were not expecting an outstanding breakfast, but perhaps they could have a smaller selection of food which is topped up a little more regularly. Apart from the breakfast, we would definitely recommend this hotel.

          Close enoujgh to the beach, but quiet enough for sleep

          Golden Sand Hotel was just what was needed. The cabana room has slightly more sqm. than the superior, which is more than ample. The location is 2 very short blocks from Serendipty Beach, which means it is is quieter and yet close enough for the nightlife is you desire that. There is a very large pool which my party enjoyed. The breakfast had many excellent choices. All of the staff was very friendly and very helpful. Good place.

          Nice quiet older hotel with modern amenities”

          Quiet, well appointed, swimming pool

          the golden sand has as many cambodians staying there as foreigners. it is 2 blocks from ochheuteal beach and a bit back from the noisy bars and food shacks on the beach itself. the hotel is probably better for older travelers who no longer spend each evening beer binging and pot smoking. the hotel is elegantly appointed, with a great lobby. the staff for the most part were very friendly, although their level of english was minimal. it was good enough for me to be able to borrow an extension cord and a hair dryer. my standard room was very nice, very clean, comfortable twin beds, had a good working air conditioner, a small refrigerator, tv with both cnn and bbc, a wireless connection and a good size bathroom with a shower in the bathtub and very hot water. the hotel has a swimming pool, an unusual treat. i walked along the beach/shore line several times and ate in the restaurants on the beach, but tended to leave to go back to the hotel by 8:00 when things got noisy. when i booked the hotel thru an asian booking site, it said that breakfast was $3. when i arrived at the hotel, i was told i was "wrong" and that breakfast was $5. i did not eat breakfast at the hotel. there are so many small restaurants in the area that that was not a problem. only negative: sometimes the bathroom had a slight smell probably due to the recirculation of air throughout the bathrooms of the hotel.

          Rooms, Restaurant, Location

          This was our first time to stay at the Golden Sand Hotel and I was very impressed with everything. This property has one of the best buffet breakfasts, very comfortable rooms and is in easy walking distance to the beach. The only negative thing I can say is the rooms would be perfect if they had a hot pot for water and a hair dryer. I will definitely stay there on my next trip.

          Had everything we needed

          * Very good location - 2 short blocks to Serendipity beach and still quiet enough to sleep * Huge pool (though on weekends children start playing in the pool at 5:45 a.m.) * Breakfast choice were extensive and the food very good * All staff (front desk, restaurant, housekeeping, pool) were very friendly and helpful/ * On the street behind the hotel we rented motorbikes which allowed us to get a good feel for the city and other beaches. We particularly enjoyed those quiet beaches even further away than Otres. * Rooms had everything we needed - comfortable beds, good working A/C, nice refrigerator, good water pressure, good TV and the bathroom had very current style fixtures. * Would recomment

          golden sands was a great discovery after having stayed in mediocre hotels during our holiday in cambodia. clean, so comfortable, friendly, helpful staff, a wonderful swimming pool with leisure bar and cafe close by. breakfast was delicious with many food choices, plus freshly cooked eggs to order. the local beach was close by and we could actually see the sea from our hotel window!

          Never fails to please”

          Good standard of room , excellent service and location

          When I feel the need to escape from Phnom Penh I often choose to visit Sihanoukville and when I do I invariably stay at this hotel - that is - when it is not full. And that is becoming the problem with this hotel. On two occasions so far this year I have wanted to stay here and have not been able to do so due to it being fully occupied. This attests to its popularity as many of its guests are locals escaping Phnom Penh for the weekend and they have discovered that this hotel provides excellent accommodation at a sensible price. It can be full even in the low seasons when other adjacent hotels are begging for customers. Prior to this visit I was forced to chose to go elsewhere. I went to an adjacent newly built property, paid a lot more for the experience than I would have had to pay at the Golden Sands and received a far inferior standard of anything one wishes to mention.

          could have been better and could have been worse”

          good buffet breakfast, great front desk staff and nice lobby.

          I stayed 4 nights at the Golden Sands. The first 3 were in a Cabana room with a pool view. The room was large and the bed quite comfortable. The buffet breakfast is probably above average except for what is called tea and coffee. There are a lot of very good eats within easy walking distance. Don't rent the motorbikes from the hotel as you are at the mercy of whatever bike the outfit that supplies their bikes delivers to the hotel. I rented 2 @ $7 a day and they were death traps. I later found marginally better bikes at $5 and I am sure I could have found better if I really looked. Also do not book with the company they use for the supposed 90 minute trip to Kep. Kamphot Tours or something like that. The only real issue I had with the room itself was quite the opposite of what you might expect. The tap water was ridiculously hot in my room. I would venture a guess at close to 80 celsius and it only take a second or two to get that hot. We both burned ourselves slightly. I commented to the front desk about the problem and they had someone there in a flash. His english was limited and all I got was a lesson in how to turn the tap to a cooler position. It was kind of comical but that water could do serious damage to an unsuspecting child. I decided to book an extra night through Agoda in a deluxe room. I thought that it was same or better than the room I was staying in since it was more expensive but it turned out to be a notch down. I had requested a double bed which they couldn't supply but was told that while I went to the beach they would convert my twins to a double bed. This was never done. In chatting with some of the staff I was told that not being able to meet the demand for double beds is an ongoing and persistant problem. The hotel has an unreasonable ratio of twins to doubles that the hotel needs to address. At the end of the day I would say that I would stay here again if I got the right price.

          Sometimes I read the reviews about hotels and after staying myself 'think'did I stay at the same hotel? This hotel had a few poor reviews one said about poor breakfast....well you have two choises hotel or beach,both the same price,on the beach it's eggs and bacon an tea/ coffee $5 with a million flies,or the hotel,full very good buffet with at least a dozen different dishes and eggs how you want them,in a/c comfort no flies,no contest,also someone mentioned soulless corridors,there are two corridors with rooms on each side,just the same as The Dorchester in London my room overlooking the pool was £20 per night the Dorchester £400 plus 20% vat I know which is better value....this hotel is great value for money very clean,nice staff,good rooms and a great pool with plenty of loungers,with a poolside bar,and sun all day,would stay here any time

          Golden Sand resort is a really nice hotel. Is very large but the staff are really friendly. the rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and quite well equipped. The swimming pool area has recently been updated and a new bar/ restaurant built which is really nice. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the beach and from a lot of good, local restaurants.

          Perfect!”

          helpful staff, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast

          Our large family with both older and younger children thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had an executive suite and a standard room with an extra bed which was perfect. The suite had a king bed, perfect for the parents, and two big queen sized beds in another room. (the two rooms were divided by a big curtain) The standard was very standard but sufficient for sleeping, and clean. All the ACs were fully functioning. The one bathroom did have a funny smell because of the water, but they were all nice and clean, the suite bathroom being exceptional. That one had a tub so the water from the shower didn't go all over the floor so that was great. And good water pressure. We enjoyed the large buffet breakfast. Something for everyone, and a definite plus for our large family. 😊 there was a mistake in booking...it said only one person was in the suite, so they only gave us one breakfast voucher for that room, but when we explained they gave us enough for everyone, even the younger children. We never ate at the hotel restaurant for anything other than breakfast, as the food seemed overpriced. the pool was nice, large, and clean, though not as glamorous as the pictures make it seem. The Occhueteal beach was a five minute walk from the hotel...far away enough that the night life didn't bother us, close enough to walk. At first the beach is a little crowded and restaurants everywhere but we walked a ways down the beach and found a private, quiet spot where we spent two happy days. I was a bit nervous to book after some of the reviews, and waking into the lobby it seemed a bit dated but breathed a sigh of relief and contentment when we walked into the room. Would definitely stay here again.

          Loved Our Stay”

          Room, Location & Breakfast

          Our stay at the Golden Sand Hotel was awesome. Only concern we had was with the staff. No apology was given when our double room that we had booked in advance was replaced with a twin and when we tried to extend our stay we were advised that they were full and that we would have to pay extra. This was an all-out lie as we were able to book on AGODA five minutes after requesting the extension at reception. You could tell the staff were really unhappy that I had booked it through AGODA as they did not make their extra money. Staff also requested my husband and I move table at breakfast as there was only two of us and we were seated at a larger table. This would of made sense if the restaurant was busy but there were only three other diners. I was stubborn and refused to move and eventually they gave in. Despite the odd staff issues we would still stay there again as our room was amazing, the location was awesome, food and breakfast was great and the swimming pool was very welcome.
