Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Beach-accessible location in Agios Georgios Argiradon
  • Basic rooms with balconies and mini-fridges
  • Large outdoor swimming pool and separate children's pool
  • Breakfast included and half-board packages available
  • On-site restaurant serves Greek and international cuisine
  • Small lobby bar and good value poolside bar
  • Occasional evening entertainment like dancing or Greek night
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking

Cons

  • Bathrooms could use an update and there are cleanliness issues in the rooms
  • Though the hotel has beach access, it's about a five-minute walk to the sandy part of it
  • Some rooms have old-fashioned tube TVs
  • Reports of odors in the rooms

Bottom Line

The 66-room Golden Sands Hotel is a two-pearl property in Agios Georgios Argiradon. Technically, there is fast beach access from the hotel but the path leads to a stoney area -- guests have to walk another five to 10 minutes to get to the sandy part with water sport rentals. The on-site restaurant serves a breakfast buffet indoors and outdoors, and there's a pool-adjacent bar. A kiddy pool and an adult pool have ample sun loungers. Rooms and bathrooms are in need of a thorough scrubbing and some fresh furniture (patterned bedspreads are particularly dated). It may be worth comparing rates at nearby Dina's Paradise Hotel and Apartments for a better beach and spotless rooms with kitchen facilities.

Scene

Three story, family-run hotel

The Golden Sands Hotel is a value property with some nice features. There are colorful hammocks strung between tall palm trees and lounge chairs spread out on the lawns. The lobby is nicely maintained with cream colored modular seating near a flat-screen TV, billiards table, and bookshelf with books and boardgames. The hotel has a relaxed vibe, at the outdoor swimming pool and beyond.

Location

In a quiet area of Agios Georgios Argiradon near the beach

The Golden Sands Hotel is located on a quiet paved road in a neighborhood with vacant lots and a nearby supermarket accessible via a sidewalk. There's beach access from the hotel down an unkempt path. Past guests recommend renting a scooter or ATV to get around the island, though there is a bus stop to Corfu town just in front of the hotel. Parking at the hotel is free.

Rooms

In need of a refresh but with balconies and some sea views

There are 66 rooms at Golden Sands Hotel and all of them are in need of some TLC. Past guests have reported odors from the in-room refrigerators and mold in the bathrooms. Beds are covered with leaf-print coverlets and floors are tiled. Some rooms have flat-screen TVs but others still have tube-style televisions mounted to the upper corner of the wall. Furnished balconies are a nice touch, especially those with views of the Ionian Sea in the distance. Rooms sleep up to four people.

Features

Swimming pool, beach access, recreational facilities -- and two bars

Guests get a lot of features for this price point. Outdoors, there's a nice swimming pool with a smaller adjacent kids' pool. You'll find a stony swath of beach down a small path, but keep walking about five minutes for golden sand and water sport rentals. Drinks are served poolside or indoors at the small lobby bar. The restaurant serves Greek and international cuisine. Breakfast is included with the price of a room and half-board packages are available. Recreational facilities include a worn tennis court, ping-pong table, and basketball hoop. Two desktop computers for guest's use are available. Staff provides entertainment in the form of dances or drink specials on some evenings.
