      Golden Sands is looking slightly tired now. We have stayed there regularly for many years. We moved to the Park Royal fir the last 6years. We decided we would try Golden Sands again. It still has a very Family Friendly ambience and wonderful staff. Sadly the decor in the rooms and corridors needs freshening up.

      Nice Hotel full of kid's facility”

      Nice Hotel, but there is extra fee 10RM per night for tourist exclude the total cost and it wasn't stated when we booked the room. The facility, pool and breakfast was amazing. The room was clean but a bit old, need lots of improvement on the bathroom. It has old shower, and dirty bathtub. You will see the sign "beware of jelly fish" in this is a beach resort. Therefore only a few guests played on the beach. But overall was good.

      1st choice of hotel when in Penang”

      By and large the best hotel for our us based on our preference, budget and needs. Location wise, it is ideal - near the beach and has bus stop in front of the hotel. Nearby hawkers and fast food chain. Facilities - kids really enjoyed the pools and slides. Gym is useful for hubby and I. Free shuttle is a bonus esp going to either Gurney or Komtar. Room - relatively bigger, cleaner, with ample toiletries. No bed bugs so far. Staff- ok but no great. Rate- reasonable. Deposit required not too much. Overall, always a satisfied guest and will be back again.

      Great experience stayed but unfortunately not during check-in, we reached Penang from KL at 1630 pm, long queued and only managed to check-in at 1900 pm, they should manage to hire more staffs on reception area and housekeeping especially during school holiday and as complimentary due to late check-in, we has been offered hotel dine in and late check-out. The rests of the facilities are superb esp the pool, walking distance to the beach, adventure zone and breakfast spreads and the staffs are helped us a lot and near to night market. Overall definitely will come again.

      Nice place for a family vacation ”

      Me and family really enjoyed our stay at this resort. We stayed for 3 days 2 nights. We eventually decided not to go for sightseeing in Penang as we truly enjoyed the facilities here. We just spent our holiday at the resort. Room was smaller than we expected and there is no bathtub. But that was ok as we didnt spend much time inside the room except at night. Other feedback for improvement, room housekeeping staff were rude and not friendly. They were yelling and complaining about other guests in front of me. Other than this, all very good.

      The kids club activity is the highlight of the hotel. Kids never get bored and they even get free foods during the activities. Highly recommended. Only down part is the Aircond in room is not sufficiently chill. Otherwise it was perfect stay.

      The staff at GOLDEN SANDS RESORT IS EXCELLENT. The bathroom shower curtains is not acceptable as it has black stains or fungus marks on the shower curtains. Shangrila Hotel standard should be clean. The breakfast spread is good and the Saturday night CHEF SEAFOOD BUFFET DINNER was good. The beef was a bit too tough.

      A memorable visit as the resort has so much activities to offer. The whole family enjoyed the stay. Big swimming pool facilities. I just wished they have a bigger gym. Currently, they have a small gym and always fully occupied in the morning.

      Great hotel”

      First time we visiting Penang without stepping out from the hotel except looking for food. So many activities scheduled by hotel for kids. Only drawback is children below 5 are not allowed to join those activities. It's sad for my boy who is 2.5 years old. Children play area is great, only dissatisfaction was the double standard from the staffs where some parents were allowed to entering play area without socks and no action was taken by staffs. Overall great hotel and nice stay, next visit should be when my boy reaching 5 years old to participate in the activities. :p
