Our suite was in the renovated section of the resort, and it was sensational. Spacious, modern, well equipped and perfectly located for the major amenities. The rest of the resort was in need of an update and felt tired. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive, and the hotel was clean. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, but the restaurants were not up to a 5*hotel standard. There are three main restaurants and no fine dining. The pool area was limited for the number of guests, and the private beach was mainly roped off for watersport vehicles so also quite limited. Mellieha village is a 5 minute drive from the resort, although hotel parking is on a first come, first serve basis so can be tricky. The resort is in a small bay, and shares a public beach, which can get very busy. All other points of interest are generally a 15min drive away.

The hotel is absolutely faultless. The staff are extremely polite and welcoming. The hotel is spotless at all times. The food was great a good selection. The pool is great with shaded areas. The hotel sits on a cliff with stunning views over golden bay. There are steps down to the beach and there is a private beach area with sunbeds for the hotel. The beach is so beautiful and the water is very clear. The hotel is not close to anything but there is a bus stop outside which is 2 euros a ride to anywhere. Special thanks to Henri who was the host for breakfast he really did make you feel like royalty! Would highly reccomend staying here i would gladly return again and am sad to be home!

This is a fabulous hotel; with a wonderful pool, private beach and very high quality restaurants. Above all the staff at the hotel made this an exceptional holiday; so helpful, so friendly. Special mention to the concierge service, receptionists, and the hospitality manager who greeted us at breakfast each day. And to the resident entertainer Jonny G. But truly, everyone at the hotel was marvellous.

This was the third time staying at the Golden Sands. We love the place! The rooms are great, the staff are friendly, the food is amazing, the location is stunning, the facilities are brilliant! If you love Malta, as we do, then you will be hard pushed to find a better holiday destination than the Golden Sands!
