You very much have to take the room photos you see with a grain of salt. We reserved a Jr. Suite with ocean views. The photos of these rooms bare no resemblance to what we had. The master bed had little natural light, so we had to switch on an ugly overhead light just to be able to see in there during the day. The master bedroom also had the door to the hallway/outside right at the foot of the bed, which provided very little sound isolation and had an outside light that shone-in through the door's glass all night like a spotlight. We had to hang a large towel from an apparatus on the inside of the door just to block enough light to be able to sleep. The phone was ancient, only partially functioned and was nearly impossible to figure-out. The toilet backed-up twice a day with little to no provocation. We constantly had the maintenance guy in to unclog until we finally persuaded one to just leave us the plunger. Overall, the facilities were ready for a major rebuild/update. We chose The Sands for value/location. As long as you don't expect much of the room you won't be disappointed. The staff were friendly, but don't expect too much help/info. Do your own research about the island. Plenty of lounge chairs at pool and beach. The location is perfection. Beach stunning, access to the island perfect. If low cost access to paradise is what you want then this is perfect. Just don't expect too much from the accommodations.

We did not like there was no bar at the hotel. We like to sit around either a pool bar, beach bar or lobby bar to meet people. Not enough chairs at the pool yet plenty of space for them. Staff was very inattentive- we had to chase down drinks when we wanted them. Beach service drinks were intermittent. There was no water or water bottles at the pool. We constantly had to go into restaurant for ice water. In general, level of staff attentiveness was not good. Rooms were spacious and nice and that is probably the one reason we may return here with kids. We would never come as a couple- It is VERY much a kid hotel. Kids everywhere.

This is the only place I’ve stayed in that included all of the water sports at no additional cost, including kayaks and Hobie Cats. Excellent spa experience, A gym on site.

Beach area was good size and not very crowded. More information to include with excursions would have been helpful (we went on one where many attactions were still advertized even though they were closed due to COVID).

Property was beautiful and the staff was amazing. Planning our next trip back!

All the staff were very friendly and offered excellent service. Property was in a quiet area. Not crowded. The location was excellent. Close proximity to everything - can walk everywhere

Quiet & Friendly!

The condo was great had 1 and 1/2 baths. It was on the beach and nice.

Small resort, but has everything you need to enjoy your stay. easy to find chairs on beach or pool area. Friendly staff. Restaraunt has good variety and food was great.

I was very happy with the property. Everything was clean and up to date. Staff was very friendly and caring. Food was excellent. Not a single complaint other than my vacation ended and I had to go home!

It is secluded and private. Beach access is great. Only down side is how far away restaurants and grocery store are if you don't have a vehicle. Luckily they do have bikes that are available for use. Would stay there again.

It was clean and this property has the best beach Tiki Huts along Grace Bay.

Beautiful property, great location, and super clean. I was there during March 2021 (Covid) and felt super safe. I enjoyed that they had tennis courts, bikes, snorkel gear and kayaks.

Gorgeous property and excellent location (and no resorts directly next door on either side so the resort felt very open with lots of beach space). Staff very helpful, nice, and hospitable. Two criticisms: 1- They first put us in a room that was very different from the room shown on the internet in size and location. We then asked for a room closer to the beach (since we paid for "ocean view" which we later learned was different from "ocean front"), and higher up so we could actually see the ocean. They moved us up two buildings and one floor higher. The condo was very nice but still not what I thought we were paying for when we booked it. Second thing kind of minor but annoying: our key pad on the door stopped working several times during the week. But we would definitely stay there again, and would make sure which building they were going to put us in at the time of reservations. Everything else was excellent, including the restaurant on property (Hemingways).

Enjoyed my stay at the Sands. All the staff were very accommodating. The property itself is laid out very nicely and very comfortably. Look forward to our next visit.

The Sands staff was very attentive!! They where always checking on me and and making sure I had whatever I needed at all times!!
