We didn't get any early check in or late check out despite being a VIP access member.
Also, the hotel area is good, but has a night club and a bar, so very typical of some noise and such crowd around the hotel, so you can imagine what to expect ;)
Hotel stay was very good. Staff pleasant. Room cleaning was pathetic. I will suggest that you should never avail services of Travel desk. They promise something and what they deliver is nothing. Do not waste your precious time and money with the travel desk. We lost quite a bit believing them. Indian restaurant is very good and decent. Overall a good stay.
I loved this Hotel- felt like a queen with beautiful staff and a really really beautiful reception, pool, restaurants, and room. The staff are ready to help you with anything and it is only 15 mins to the airport
There are 2 Golden Sands apartment hotels 3 & 5. We stayed in 5 and were pleased at the accommodation provided. The room was comfortable. Cooking facilities were available tho we did not use these and thus offer no comment on their suitability. Check in was quick and it was great to be offered a refreshing drink at reception. Early check in was no issue tho not requested. The rooftop pool was very refreshing in the Dubai heat. The only downside is that the hotel is a little away from the tourist area and rail transport with both at least a 15 minute walk. There also did not seem to be many restaurants nearby. We were told that there was as shop nearby for supplies however we did not find it.
The main administrative and shopping district, Bur Dubai contains some of Dubai's oldest buildings. Bastakiya is a carefully restored 'heritage quarter' of narrow alleys and courtyard houses cooled by wind-towers. Sheikh Maktoum's House (now a museum) is a fine example of 19th-century Arabian architecture. The nearby Dubai Museum offers a succinct account of the Emirate's history, while the Heritage & Diving Village recreates its maritime past.
