Editorial review:

If you are in Dubai for an extended stay, this 12 building facility may suit your needs. All of the apartments include small kitchens with washers. There is high speed internet access that sometimes slows down if too many people get on at the same time. The décor is simple and a bit worn from frequent use, but this is a very popular and an adequate destination if you need a slightly longer term home away from home.

Verified Reviews:

  • Spacious hotel - Street noise - Highly recommended
  • Good rates - Kitchen was dirty - Good staff

                    Clean and comfortable rooms with home-like facilities

                    Covering one of the two pools with a sun shade would be welcomed by hotel guests

                    The rooms were clean. When my air conditioner was broken, they immediately moved me to another room.

                    The staff were rude, you never know which of the buildings you're supposed to go into. The curtains don't shut, leaving people at the pool a nice view into my room.

                    I'm a regular guest at Golden sands. Location for me is good as it is close to city, airport and metro station. Free internet access in all rooms is also appreciated.

                    The size of the apartment we had for two couples was great. It is also very central for shopping centres and had no bother in getting taxis.

                    The only point I can make is that the ac in the apartment did not have separate controls in each room.

                    Internet access without charge, coffee shop/restaurant (opening hours)

                    room smelled sticky / fungal infestation? very clean, but ... and no chance to open window (daily heat, exhaust gas from cars)

                    I like from management of the hotel to review the prices and change some of the furnuture.

                    Good location and professional staff. Easy to locate despite many Golden Sands facilities in the area.

                    Golden Sands would benefit form clothing horse for washing for outside. This would protect their furniture being used and possibly ruined. Internet should have been limited to 30 mins per use.

                    The flat was spacious, clean & comfortable.

                    I had difficulty in locating the Hotel. Gaining access before registering was also difficult. Also lounging facilities was very limited. We did not enjoy the breakfast as we considered it to be very limited too.

                    Big and good for families

                    No toaster in the room and not enough in the hotel when requested!

                    The location was off the main highway, which meant traffic noise at night was not too intrusive when it was time to go to bed. The staff were helpful and courtious.
