This is the second time I have stayed at this property and there have been good changes since the last stay. The rooms have been renovated and the property has undergone a facelift, now much more modern and fresh. Great location and lovely outdoor area.

The first room we were given was room 645 and we were greeted by a large Asian cockroach. The second room we got was 655 and the bathroom floor was always flooded because the shower head sprayed water onto the edge of the tub and water just drip to the floor uncontroled.

The hotel provides everything you could need. The only complaint I have is that very little information was forthcoming when we booked in regarding the services that the hotel offered. We did'nt find out for two days that a shuttle bus was provided to go to and from Georgetown. We also wanted to visit the fireflys (on a guided tour) but they would not offer any info. As a result we arranged it ourselves. Meals were up to standard. I did mention to staff that the downstairs ladies toilet in the foyer needed attention. I guess I had to take into consideration that the hotel was full but I felt that they could have taken more interest. Apart from these couple of issues I would recommend that hotel for anyone who wants to stay there.

Very good resort for family holiday. Hotel has extensive leisure facilities and poolside activities. However the sandy beach needs cleaning up and sea water quality often poor possibly because it''s a public beach-however would still come back.

Hotel staff were very thoughtful and helpful. The hotel setting is very nice as well. The Garden restaurant serves good breakfast and dinner. The dinner we had at SiGi was a bit disappointing. The additional activities for kids as well as Tai Chi were good. We''d a lovely holiday here.

Great hotel resort for families and children, with very extensive range of activities suitable for toddlers through to adults. The beach is much cleaner than it was last time I was here a few years ago. However, we found food and drink a bit expensive, especially alchoholic drinks. At nearby restaurants drinks were half the price, and food of a similar or better standard also significantly cheaper. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this resort for families, and I was impressed with the level of care taken for the safety of children. Pulau Pinang is also a great part of Asia to visit.

If you have kids, make sure the rooms next to you and below you are not occupied by guests who are particularly sensitive to noise (eg retirees, VIP guests etc). I was unfortunate to stay in a suite above another occupied by a elderly couple from overseas who complained that my kids were jumping in the middle of the night when in fact we were all sitting quietly watching a movie! I told the GM the next day that the reason family usually pick Golden Sands (over other hotels) is because it is supposed to be children-friendly! Of course, kids would be noisy!

The hotel was clean and has a great pool and beach. There was a foul up on my reservation in that they put me in a smoking room. However they went the extra mile to get me a non smoking room. Which presented some difficulty as it was a major holiday and the hotel was packed. I thought the breakfast buffet a bit overpriced at $40RM. The other menu items were in line though. Service was very good and the staff extremely helpful.

I think this is a best hotel in Penang. Located in beach area with many watersport facilities. For swimming, I recommend to go to Monkey beach by hotel boat. There are many good restaraunts in Golden Sands and nearby Shangri-la Rasa Sayang resort. All of them have 20-40% discount for hotel''s guests. Very good buffet dinner in Japanese and Garden restaraunts. Breakfast with great choice. Will recommend this hotel to all my friends.

The hotel is well situated right on the beach front, and near the main strip of local stalls and restaurants. However, you'll find that you spend most of your time in this friendly hotel rather than on the beach as the atmosphere is excellent. Facilities are superb, especially the fact that Golden Sands residents can also use the 5 star Rasa Sayang next door. Would recommend it without hesitation.

The rooms with seaview have the downside of the noise from music until sometimes midnight. The gardenview is spoilt by buildings. Nevertheless it is a very good hotel for families and those who like a lot of activities during a beach holiday. Shuttle bus to Georgetown very practicl and shopping is excellent.

Would we recommend to a friend? Yes we would although comparing my memory from previous stays the general and overall impression was a slight tiredness of the overall hotel.

Most important one, the hotel was under extensive paint work where we were there. They checked us in the room in the middle of the area where most of the work was going on as they did for hundreds of other guest. The paint was smelly and old paint chips all over the balcony. The balcony were unusable during this period. Foreign workers were routinely entering our balcony area to carry out paint works. We were not advised on any of this when we booked via your website nor were we advised when we checked in. Following our complaints we were moved to the other side of the hotel. This is becoming an all too frequent occurence. Major hotels carrying out renovations and still selling the rooms at full price as if everything were normal. This is unacceptable!!

We enjoy our stay at your hotel. Your tolerance level is enviable. You can be proud at your people and your society. You offer a lot of opportunity for sports and to relax. For sure we''ll come back next year!

Good Hotel. Nevertheless, be careful with attractive prices for the bedroom without breakfast included: Breakfast is charged more than 50 Rm pax! Room are nice, but need to be refreshed (carpet is old and damaged).
