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.

Relaxing birthday getaway

The location is perfect. The town is easy to walk to in about ten minutes. Their beachfront is clean and use of their stand up paddle gear and catamarans are free. The two bedrooms are very spacious. All of their balconies are screened in which helps to keep any bugs or debris out. I stayed for five days and will definitely return here again. Also, Janet from concierge is the most helpful person to set up activities and dinner reservations every day.

Great Value; Great Beach!

Just got back from 6 days at the Sands. Its beach is one of the broadest on the island which you'll appreciate if you walk down to the underwater coral garden. Plan to snorkel it; the water is fantastic; clearer than any I've ever seen. Love the big rooms, our own fridge and the screened porch. Hemingway's restaurant is good and the staff friendly but it's menu pales in comparison to others close by, namely, Mango Reef. Biggest negative of hotel was 3rd floor walk-up. This old gal needs an elevator at 71 and, although the exercise is good; my sacroiliac was screaming.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Caution: Taxis are not regulated. Ask for Majestic Taxi, Leonard or Antoinette The best on the island, totally reliable, on time, fair fares. Avoid Angela's Taxi; she tried to rip us off but failed because we made her take us back to the hotel when she upped the fare from the one initially agreed upon ... which goes to show you shouldn't try to take advantage of little old ladies!

Great Location

The beach was beautiful. Able to walk (-10 mins.) to town and beach restaurants. The staff were very friendly giving recommendations for dinner and tours. The condos are spacious with large linais.

Sands at Grace Bay in T&C

The only way I would say anything bad about this place would be so I could keep how great it is a secret so it will not be sold out or too expensive the next time I want to go. The entire T&C experience is wonderful!

Perfect setting

The location was perfect, the grounds and pools perfectly kept. Might be nice if they had a few more bicycles, and if the convenience store opened a little earlier. But the staff and amenities were better than described in the brochure. I would definetly stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The diving at Grace Bay was just as good as taking the hour boat ride to West Caicos, and with dive operators that will pick you up right in front of your hotel, and bring you back, you are talking about a 3 hour commitment for 2 dives versus a 6-7 hour trip - take into account the time getting to the marina on the other side of the island.
