              I love this hotel for price, location, cleanliness and friendly staff. My only negative is this hotel has been took over by the chinese since my previous stay and to be honest i couldnt wait to check out as their hygiene manners are massively different to mine And i had enough of it! The sound of constant spitting and smoking at breakfast just ruined it for me, thanks to all the staff though for their great friendliness

              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.

              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.

              When I only received breakfast vouchers for half of those who went, I was a little nervous, especially after the dirty look I received when I asked for extra bottles of water to accommodate all in my party. When I asked, there was no problem at all, though, and I was given the rest of the breakfast vouchers! The hotel was VERY clean! I expected there to me more sand everywhere since we were so close to the beach, but there was hardly any. The room was big and spacious and the pool area was well kept as well! The beach was easily within walking distance.

              It was a perfect hotel. The only problem, was the smell of smoking in the rooms. To be fair, they had no smoking signs in the rooms, but the place stank of smoke. They need to enforce the policy better. Breakfast was ok, obviously geard more towards Chinese guests.

              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.

              When we arrived there, it was raining very much. Immediately staff came to the car with big umbrellas! WOnderful! Big parking place with security. Check-in was quite quick - although I didn't have a print out of the voucher. I only had to show them the voucher on my computer. We were 4 people (2 adults and 2 children 12 and 14), and the rooms (Cabana) were very big with 2 big beds on the 1st floor. There are elevators from the groundfloor (receiption) to the 1st floor. The rooms were very silent in the nights! Very good bathroom, and the breakfast was very delicious! Many things to choose for eating! For drinking they have juice, tea and coffee (no cacao available). The outdoor pool was very nice, but we prefered to go to swim to the seaside, which is only 5min walking away.

              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.

              Over the last five years when I feel the need to escape from Phnom Penh I often go down to Sihanoukville and when I do I invariably choose to stay at this hotel. It never fails to please. It is not 'grand' but provides excellent quality with respect to all one's needs at a sensible price. I particularly like the room. It is of good size and is well furnished, well maintained and always clean. It has large sliding windows and, what is very rare to find in Cambodia, the windows are screened. I hate air con and it is wonderful to be able to open the window, get some fresh air into the room without being invaded by mosquitoes. The staff are excellent, being polite and attentive and the hotel's breakfast is very, very good.

              Comfortable hotel with a good price”
              Location excellent, pool nice, staff helpful
              This is not the usual type of hotel I choose to stay in, but saying that it has all your needs. The bed was comfortable and it is located close to the beach, restuarants, bars and shops. It is a little run down and tired looking, but for the price you pay it is acceptable. The pool is quite nice. Breakfast was okay. Staff were friendly and helpful.

              Wifi tại khách sạn có đầy sóng nhưng không thể vào được, KS nên cải tiến việc này. Ăn sáng Buffet tại KS với lượng khách quá đông nên phục vụ rất tệ, thức ăn ko kịp bổ sung nên tôi hầu như chẳng ăn được gì, nên xem lại.

              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.
