True to the description it was home away from home.I was traveling with my wife and 1.3yrs old kid, wanted a place which was neat spacious with a kitchen and absolutely got what i was looking for. The rooms( Front room & bed room) are spacious with ceiling fan and AC.The front room has TV,dinning table which opens out to a sit out area. Kitchen is well equipped with microwave, fridge,mixer,basic utensils and gas stove. Bathroom was spotless clean with provision for hot water. Bath towels were provided but you have to get your own toiletries.There is even a washing machine if planning to stay longer. Garden, swimming pool and surrounding place was clean and immaculate. The beach is good twenty minutes walk from the place and through the fields so could be pretty dark in the evenings. There are good eat out places near by like martins connor ,fishka which are just about 5-10 min drive.
Overall, we absolutely loved the Golden Sands Apartments and would definitely recommend it.
Not all apartments are controlled by the same owners,Golden sands got rid of some works,as the owner,would not pay for the bad service they received ,,other owners supplied cleaners for there apartments ,,some said get, your cleaners, We did this,easy, to hire local lady Maria and apartment got good service all winter..By the end of March,/April 2016,New Maintance men/outside cleaning, was looking good again.
Going this winter Dec/Jan,,2017,,will hire Maria again [very reasonible rate]good service,, Owner provides any maintance service required, via his agent. looking foreward to this winter..
This is the second time that we have stayed at Golden Sands, (booked through Cosmos) it has gone down hill. Our friends stayed in B1 as they did last year, the floor tiles on their veranda were cracked and broken last year, they still have not been repaired and were worse this year, very dangerous. The swimming pool needs maintaining. Last year the cleaners regularly swept and washed the main walkway, this year it was done twice in two weeks. As some of the apartments are privately owned, some are not being maintained which is having a negative impact on the site as a whole. We had a night flight and we were due to leave our rooms by midday, although nobody was due to have three out of the four apartments booked ( we went with friends and family) we had to pay 38 each for the afternoon, after chatting to another couple at the airport who also stayed there, they refused to pay and were left off!! Having given the negative points, the positives are the grounds are beautiful and the rooms bright and airy...and you can even order pizza for delivery if you fancy having a day/night in! Just one other thing, free wifi but only in the reception, we had no connection in our rooms.
