A travel blog entry by katemoloney88


Dubai - hot and humid! We arrived at 4am and it was 35 degrees, the sun wasn't even up!

The first thing that shocked me was a sign at the airport "ladies waiting area" and that started for me a week long education on how woman can be treated differently. (mind you this is slowly changing!)

For the first 6 nights we stayed in an …

A travel blog entry by gmed1987


I boarded my flight for Dubai in Los Angeles, fairly excited as I would be flying for my first time on Emirates, as I've seen and heard good things about them. I was fairly well prepared for the journey, it's been a while since I took a 15 hour flight, but none the less my experience with the long haul had me ready. My kindle was charged fully so …

Dubai by night

A travel blog entry by macedonbarringo


We arrived so tired but rearing to go.
No sooner than we get to hotel we organized a city tour for 4 hours and it included a Dinner on a Boat Café with a Bollywood Dancer. It was even funnier than Dieter falling asleep at the table because he was so tired as we all were.
The tour included so many places but was rushed.
We saw a couple …

    This is a beautiful hotel. We had a studio that was newly renovated for $80 per night with buffet international breakfast. The hotel had great facilities and was close to supermarkets. We cooked alot of our own food and the staff did our dishes for us. We hired a car for 120 AED per day, fuel is cheap and the hotel is a 10 min drive from the Burj Khalifa. There is a desk in the hotel especially for organising tours/hire cars etc to make your stay amazing

    Rooms were very nice, service was a little slow at desk on arrival. But due to the fact we were all tired and couldn't wait to get to our room and rest didn't help. Well situated and clean.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Sands Hotel Apartments Dubai

    Clean but dated accommodation


    We've just come back from staying a week at Golden Sands 3 (GS3). As it was a three star we were hoping for something along the lines of a travelodge - clean basic accommodation. It turned out to be much bigger than a travelodge, but less modern.



    Myself, my partner and 2 year daughter, stayed at the Golden Sands Apartments, June 2004.

    Reliable, good value (and some advice for the ladies)


    Over the past month I've stayed at Golden Sands 3, 5 and 10. Golden Sands 3 is the block most people know. Mainly studio rooms with plenty of room for a single or couple, a full kitchen, a decent size bathroom and a balcony. Coffee shop does a reasonable breakfast and in the evening you can eat by the pool. Small gym. Tour office and car hire in the reception area together with 2 PCs in the business centre. Very helpful reception staff and porters.

    Great value - good location


    Just back from a five night stay at Golden Sands 3. If you want a good value base in the centre of Dubai I would thoroughly recommend it.

    Redlight area


    The apartments are fine.The bur dubai area is a redlight area I would not recommend these apartments for familys or single women. You would be safer staying in one of the bigger hotels.

    Brillant Accomadation and value for money


    The apartment was lovely which included a decent size bathroom & a kitchen and the service was brillant.

    The facilities included a pool/suana and had a cafe which was brillant, and good value for money.

    I would recomend this apartment to anyone visiting dubai for a short/shopping holiday.

    Shopping Festival!


    Having stayed at the Jumeriah Beach Hotel on a previous visit to Dubai, we decided to try a more central location and get out into the hustle and bustle of the city itself.

    Good Basic Accom


    I booked a twin room at the Golden Sands 3 (there are about 10 different GSs apartment blocks) through the Octopus Travel website.

    Great place to stay


    Great place to stay at an excellent cost having now stayed 3 times and will be there again this October.

    Very spacious rooms that our well equipped and there is a high standard of cleanliness.

    The pool is a little on the small time and can be in shaddow for part of the day but the beach is only a short drive away and if you want to use the hotel transport to the beach, it is free.

    A bargain


    Stayed in 2001. It was our first time in Dubai. Got a relatively cheap deal. Although other hotels are better and have more facilities, the high rating takes account of value for money.

    The Golden Sands consists of a group of building apartments which are based in Dubai itself. This was handy as one of the main reasons to go was shopping. There is daily shuttle bus that takes you to the beach area.

    The rooms also have self catering facilities, although you are more likely to eat out. If you get a cheap deal and do not want to go the fancy priced hotels in dubai then this is recommended.
