Our Stay at The Sands Hotel at Grace Bay

This hotel has such a warm, friendly and more private secluded area filled with lovely foliage that makes tropical areas for you to sit by the 3 pools or read in a hammock in the palms! Lovely beach tiki hut areas and items to rent for free for water use!!!!. The beach area is gorgeous! The room was great and the restaurant wonderful. Very friendly staff! I would recommend this hotel to anyone, the price is the best and you get more amenities than you would imagine for the cost. A tremendous value!!

Fantastic getaway

The staff was very kind and accommodating to our needs. The Hemingway restaurant on the resort did not have too many varieties but I do recommend their conch salad as I believe it is good both in taste and price. Other restaurants are about 10 minute walk away, however bicycles can be rented for free.

Easy bike ride or walk to supermarket, restaurants, and the souvenir shop. Hemingway is great! especially breakfast. The complimentary water equipment is a plus! All staffs are very friendly and eager to help.

Enjoyable trip

The Sands was an excellent choice for me and my friends. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable. The beach was my favorite place to be each day--Berthold was the best. The staff was also very nice and friendly. We ate dinner at few nights at the Hemmingway, but enjoyed the breakfast and lunch better.

Wonderful hotel, restuarant good, not great.

In a location like this, on the shore of Grace Bay, a lot of the experience has to do with the particular room you find yourself in. While many rooms here are classified Ocean View, some are no doubt marginal in that regard. Although we were in building 1, the furthest from the beach, we were on the end of the third floor, with a spectacular view of the ocean from anywhere in the room. The full kitchen and large screened in patio were both great to have (not that we had any insect or mosquito during our stay). The room was very clean, well maintained and well serviced. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The pool areas are intermingled around beautiful landscaping, providing more open areas as well as more secluded areas. There were nice options. The food at the Hemingway restaurant was good, but the service was hit or miss. We only ate there a few times, and on a couple occasions the wait staff seemed more interested in chatting than handling food or drink orders. I recommend renting a car and trying other restaurant options, as there are many. One of our favorites was 'da Conch Shack'.

Good stuff! Great location.

The Sands was a good hotel. It was quiet, family friendly, couples friendly, and clean! THe A/C was great. We stayed in Room 2301, so 3rd floor of Bldg #2, We had a great view of the water from 3 windows and we were an "Oceanview" which can be tricky regarding the actual water visibility. Our kitchen was complete with fridge, freezer, stove, plates, utensils, coffee maker, toaster & even granite countertops.... Even a washer and dryer. Ah! The only negative was that the water smelled a little "sulphur-y." So that was a little off putting. We just tossed that fact aside,.... we were in paradise! Eat at Coco Bistro & Mango Reef. Both SO good. The Sands's on site restaurant, Hemingway's, was great for breakfast when we did not want to cook in the room or some conch fritters at lunch when lounging at the beach. We walked to all the good restaurants and little shops in town. Would recommend, Although, we will try the Alexandra up beach when we return!

Yearly get away

This hotel is awesome. The staff is as friendly and accommodating as you can get. Beach access is unhindered. The on-site restaurant is great. we ate there every meal. The beach staff goes to any lengths to make your stay perfect. Long uninterrupted beach is not ever crowded.

Location makes it worth while

On Grace Bay Beach you cannot find a more perfect location. Soft sand and unreal aqua waters make this trip unreal. That being said the hotel grounds were beautiful, the room was average, and the staff was overall impersonal. This seemed to be a trend in restaurants (with a few exceptions) with clerks and servers giving you the feeling you were bothering them. Tips are built into most things so I wonder if there is no motivation for service. A worthwhile trip, just be prepared.
