might be helpful to rent a car for a few days as taxis are needed for getting to many restaurants and they an be pricey and they add up.

Great Experience

We stayed for eight nights, the only drawback is that there was only one restaurant on the property that was very expensive, $48 for chicken pene pasta. You'll be lucky to get in during high season, reservations required. They have a shuttle to the local grocery store that runs twice a week for $10 and they wait 45 min while you shop. Since it's 'condo' living we opted to pay $140 for groceries for 8 days instead of $50 a meal for two people at 3x a day that would have added up to about $1200 on food alone. Otherwise, the ocean view was great and all non-motorized sports are complimentary including: 14' ca*amaran, snorkel, sea ka*ak, and bicycles. They also have scooters that you can rent. overall two thumbs up

amazing

This was our first visit to turks and caicos. I can tell you right away that it will not be the last! Upon arrival to The Sands, we were greeted by extremely friendly staff and welcomed with a rum punch. Our room was basically a mini apartment, more than enough room for two people. Everything is new and up to date. There are several pools to choose from right outside the room. The best part, a walk to the ocean is about 20 seconds away! If you don't get down there when the sun comes up to claim a hut, the staff ask you to pick a spot you want on the beach and set up an umbrealla and pull chairs up for you. Trust me, you'll want some shade. Hemingway's at the sands was absolutely delicious. We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there and no complaints. If you aren't used to island time, the waiting may upset you. Really, what do you need to rush for? There were several more restaraunts within walking distance by either beach or down the street. The bike rentals came in really handly for going into "town." Not a complaint here!!!

Doing nothing

This is the perfect relaxation spot. You don't have to leave the property at all. The beach is open to walk for at least a mile in each direction. Clear,blue water and nice ocean breezes.

Sands at Grace Bay

Good place to stay! Not high end like a few on the beach but much better than most. Just a bit dated as the bathrooms are very small. We stayed in the studio as there are only two of us and it was plenty big. King bed, couch, 2 chairs, TV, balcony, washer and dryer in bathroom, small kitchen. The only problem was with the kitchen.....there is no stove top or pans just a micro wave and fridge, so if you want to cook breakfast, you can not. They could put a small cook top in there with a fry pan and it would be perfect. There are 3 pools, (1 for adults only). This hotel sits right on the beach and provides hobie cats, umbrellas, towels and chairs, snorkel gear, stand up boards, bicycles, all for free use.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Most of the restaurants are in center of town and are a long walk but manageable. They are sort of hard to find so get yourself a map. They are all expensive also. You have to get used to the prices. A beer is usually around $7 a glass. Average dinner is around $28 to $42, dessert $9 to $15. breakfast $15 up for each person.

Perfect location, would prefer friendlier desk staff

Location amazing. Courtyard room needs more lighting, mattress replacement, and the couch cleaned (moldy smell from previous visitors sitting on the couch wet from ocean/pool). Upgraded to garden view, absolutely no complaints with this room. Housekeeping and grounds people extremly polite and friendly. Rony with grounds was exceptionally great, getting my husband coconuts a couple of mornings. The only complaint we had was with the concierge girls. Asking them where something was located outside of the hotel was like pulling teeth, and they never smiled. We felt it was basic service with them at best. All other staff no complaints.

10-15 minute walk to Pizza Pizza, located above Giggles ice cream. Good food and prices. Found the best snorkeling to be in front of the coral gardens hotel, but fyi that is a long hard 30 minute walk down to hotel by beach, may prefer to grab a taxi back.

Perfect location but apartment needs updates

Location is perfect. Right at the wide beach and the garden is beautiful. Our apartment ( 6201 ) was not up to date though. Ocean view but actually the furthest location away from the beach. Rooms are nice size and the screened balcony was big. Tiles were worn and the appliances old. Right next to the parking lot so there were noise from cars, deliveries and garbage collection. The bicycles free of charge but in really terrible condition. Hemingways restaurant right at the beach but only average and not cheap. Go to bay bistro next door which is much better but also even more expensive. Overall nice but too expensive.
