From the outside the Golden Beach is somewhat of a monstrosity: a collection of balconies stuck to a building made up of various stones with a dark-looking supermarket on one side of the entrance and an unappetising pizzeria the other. Your opinion of the place probably will not change once you head inside into the eerie, roofless lobby which rises up past the galleries of guestroom corridors. A boring, dated décor adorns the hall which features niches of chesterfield sofas, equestrian paintings and a few potted trees. The staff behind the reception desk looked fed up on our visit and were slow to help.
Far better to head outside to the generously-sized swimming pool surrounded by greenery but also by an unsightly wall. For much of the day the pool enjoys good exposure to the sun, although it dips behind the building in the late afternoon. If you want to extend your sunbathing session then you can always head up to the public terrace to catch those last few rays. One big disadvantage with sitting out at the pool is the noise coming from the nearby building site, although this of course will be finished at some point. As well as the main pool there is another, smaller, shallower one just for kids although no other entertainment for is provided for the little ones (or the big ones for that matter).
Having no wellness or fitness facilities there is not much else in the way of public areas at the hotel aside from the corridors through which guests access their rooms. These are wide and light and finding your accommodation is pretty simple. Other amenities at the hotel include free wifi throughout as well as a business centre charged at 25MAD per hour.
