We booked for three people for 5 days.. Ali told us it was a room for 2 and we owed more money. It had a couch that pulled out. Was dirty. Gave us one sheet for the couch. Went the next day for another one and had to argue with him to get a second. Needed toilet paper and he... More

My friend and I booked a seven night stay in a two bedroom apartment through a well-known on line booking agency. When arriving at the resort, we found the owners, Ali and his wife, were very friendly and the pool was nice. However when we arrived at the apartment we found it was very dirty. My guess was it had... More

We have just spent 3 weeks in a one bedroom apartment at Golden Sands. Everything was great, from our lovely light, bright, sparkling clean apartment to the beautiful heated lagoon pool and the 2 minute walk to a pristine beach. The very friendly manager Ali and his lovely wife couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Our... More

Very quiet location, spacious self contained rooms with balcony and car park in the basement. A short stroll through the back yard and the beach is right there. Anyone staying here should consider renting a car to get to shops, restaurants, cairns and where ever else you want to go.

My room is beautiful. So quiet and peaceful. It is a one bedroom apartment, and I couldn't be happier in it. I would love to live here permanently. Access to the beach is only a two minute walk. Lovely restaurant right next door for breakfast and dinner - Echos. And the talking cockatoo is gorgeous! Highly recommend this place.

Quick update on my previous review. It got too much for me, the smell was overwhelming, so I made an executive decision, decided to hang the expense, I left! In other words, I have wasted money on two nights accommodation, they refused to refund for the second night when I didn't even stay one night. I am now at The... More

Our second trip - first time was great but it's gone downhill. Wifi not available in our room (I had to buy an expensive data sim card in order to work), restaurant shut, other amenities advertised, such as bar/lounge/café/deli did not exist. Pool cleaned just once during our week's stay - I was not happy about using it. Some kitchen... More
