Golden Sands

TripAdvisor Review
Barbados, Caribbean
Christ Church

The hotel is perfectly located on the Barbados south coast, just opposite the beach and approximately 15 minutes by car from Bridgetown. The beautiful moonlight often illuminates the nightlife and wealth of nearby hotspots, such as the St. Lawrence Gap, the Oistins open-air Fish Fry and many others, all within 10 minutes of the hotel.

The 27-room family-friendly aparthotel offers all the amenities for families looking to spend a perfect holiday in a home-away-from-home environment. In addition to a lobby area with 24-hour reception and check-out services, a hotel safe and currency exchange desk, facilities available to guests at this air-conditioned establishment include a café, bar, TV room, restaurant, wireless Internet access and room and laundry service. Furthermore, guests may also take advantage of a daily maid service, security, car parking, changing room and a medical service.

The spacious, comfortable and luxurious rooms are equipped with everything needed for a dream holiday. The bathroom comes with a shower and hairdryer. Further standard features of accommodation units include a king, queen or twin beds overlooking the tropical garden on to the pool or the calm Caribbean Sea. They also have a coffee maker, microwave, cable TV, radio, wireless Internet access, a digital safe and air conditioning.

Guests can enjoy a dip in the outdoor swimming pool and there are sun loungers and parasols laid out for use on the sun terrace. Guests can pamper themselves with spa treatments. The nearby beach is sandy.

A continental breakfast is served each morning at the hotel. Lunch and dinner can be taken à la carte or selected from various menu options.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Loved this hotel

Review by Glenys D Scotland, United Kingdom

My husband and i stayed for 10 nights and absolutely loved it. Very peaceful and quiet. Rooms are huge...

Clean towels every day and bedding changed loads of times. The staff are absolutely brilliant, very polite and helpful, especially Mellissa, Andrew and Brenda. The beach is across the road and the local fish market/fry are 10 minute walk. We fished from the jetty at the fish market and had a great time catching fish. We had the pool to ourselves most days which was perfect for us.

Not the Best

I came here for one night, I emailed the receptionist and ask them to confirm receipt of the email and got no response. I went down the front desk and the receptionist greeted me like I was bothering her. I told her about the email I sent and before I could finish, the phone rang...

All she did was put up her finger and answer the phone. After I told her, again, what I came there for she told me, yes she got it (again, like I was bothering her). I told her that I asked for confirmation of receipt of the email and she looked at me I was really getting on her nerves. I am a paying customer! You ought to treat everyone with respect.

On another note, some of the tiles in the room were loose, the water in the sinks in both the kitchenette and bathroom were taking long to drain; the sink in the bathroom was leaking and the toilet was not flushing properly. Lastly, the window in the bathroom was not closed properly (I also tried to close it but it wouldnt budge) so bugs came in at night and I had to keep the bathroom door closed.

There is one more issue regarding the restaurant but I will leave that out.

I would not come here again even if I won a free stay. It is definitely NOT worth the money.

Our stay at Golden Sands Hotel was excellent and really recommend it!

Review by Cinznmyuke London, England, United Kingdom

We choose the Golden Sands Hotel to spend our quarantine which lasted five days. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony with the view of the pool and beautiful garden where we spotted monkeys and cute birds. Having the vast space, tv, kitchen and balcony ensured we could enjoy our time even if we were "stuck inside"...

The restaurant delivers food to your room which was really tasty, we also managed to dine in the restaurant when "freed" on Christmas day and, not only the food was delicious, but it was a lovely atmosphere with many local families celebrating here.

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, house keeping provided all we needed daily and the caretaker was so nice to speak too from the balcony! Most importantly Mechelle the manager took very good care of us, buying some essentials we needed from supermarket and pharmacy, and helping us chase test results which were delayed.

Once we got the test results we could also use the pool which was great and there's a beautiful beach right opposite. Oistins fish fry is walking distance as well as the beautiful Miami beach. You can also reach other areas of the island taking the local busses that stop right opposite the hotel.

Pleasantly surprised!

Review by GuestAmbassador Bridgetown, Barbados

Most Barbadians associate Golden sands for its lively Rum and Souse and Karaoke on Saturdays. As for me I usually would order pudding and souse and go collect it. However given a birthday gift as a staycation although it would not have been top of mind, I was very happy at the choice.

We had the ocean view on second floor, the studio room was very spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean...

The staff I interacted with were helpful and a pleasure to communicate with. It was a great bajan experience with real soul food at very good prices!! I highly recommend those coming to Barbados for "We Gathering" in october (christ chuch month) should consider booking this hotel , . Totally ideal for family planned events
