2 Star property
Hotel requires a serious remodel. Stains everywhere. Old out of date.

Fantastic getaway
The overall stay was fun. Shangri-La is one of the best hotel brands to me. However, there was a flash mob on Saturday morning during the buffet breakfast. The volume of the song was too loud and it definitely spoilt the mood and appetite.

Great family hotel
Hotel was accommodating to children and very friendly. Cleanliness of room wasn’t spotless but clean enough, just the little hidden places you can see that we’re collecting dust that hadn’t been cleaned in awhile however our overall stay was very pleasant.

Great beach staycation!
Golden Sands is a great resort. We were delighted with the lovely pool and enjoyed the family atmosphere even though we had no kids with us. Very friendly staff, always ready to help. Great amenities. Wish we learned of the Launderette earlier during our stay. The location is just perfect. Rooms and some parts of the hotel looked a little tired and might need to be updated soon.
