Nearby attractions

Neighborhood

Golden Sands is located in the Bur Dubai district an area more low key and less showy than the beachfront areas, and a great spot for those wanting to stay somewhere quiet. It's just a few blocks from the scenic Dubai Creek, which is filled with Arabic history, having brought settlers to Bur Dubai in the 1800s. Just to the south is the Dubai World Trade Center, a massive business, exhibition, and convention center.

One of the most attractive features of the Golden Sands' location is its proximity to the two Centerpoint shopping malls, situated right next door to the property. One of Dubai's best shopping centers, there's popular Middle Eastern brands such as Splash, Lifestyle and Shoe Mart, amongst many other stores and stalls.

Dining

Restaurant

Friends United trip

Would recommend Tue, Jan 19, 2016
The hotel was of an acceptable standard for what we required. The room was clean and tidy on the first day, however the standard of subseqent housekeeping was of a lower standard.The front staff were very busy and not as friendly as the catering staff. However, we were able to check in earlier after an overnight flight which was brilliant.

Great Trip

Would recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
I had a great time, the Hotel was great, staff was friendly and very helpful. The food in the buffet was awesome. I used the Tour desk to plan a couple days. I think the Hotel was priced very reasonable. I would most likely stay at the Golden Sands Hotel in the future.

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 9, 2015
Hotel is good for the location, staff are very helpful & friendly but the hotel now badly in need of upgrading, specially bath rooms they are well out of date. We had water leaking in our bathroom from ceiling at around midnight, we informed the staff and it was fixed but we had the inconvenience of not using the facility while the work was carried out and also due to work being done unable to hi to bed, overall late to bed for about an hour or so.

Dated

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 9, 2015
It's not a bad place, but no sunshine on the pool, so gets cold. Dated could do with modernisation. Location is ideal with a big supermarket right opposite and a mc d's in there, if your a family you tend to need things quite often.
