We booked and paid for our room months in advance for our honeymoon. A few days before our check in, the staff sent an email asking when our flight was going to land. I told them and inquired about Hurricane Matthew because on their website they offer to reschedule if there is a hurricane warning. No response (Hurricane Matthew did hit while we were there by the way). Fast forward. They let us fly all the way out there and the manager was waiting for us at the hotel to inform us that they are, and have been for weeks, CLOSED for RENOVATIONS. I had every right to a refund or at the very least to reschedule. But they took that option away from us. They didn't tell us until we showed up at their doorstep. They offered to move us to a different hotel, and we had no choice but to accept because we were there and needed a place to stay! We paid for a garden view at the Sands but got a room with a view of the parking lot at the Palms. We were expecting casual dining open for lunch and dinner at Hemingways that has a rather large gluten free menu. I have Celiac disease so this was the main reason we wanted to stay at the Sands. Instead, at the Palms, I could either eat fish tacos wrapped in lettuce instead of a tortilla at the pool bar or fine dining that we can't afford. My husband didn't even bring a collared shirt to wear to their restaurant. In addition, the Palms is not within walking distance to the shops and the grocery store so we had to take a taxi every time we went to the village. If I had been notified of the situation before we came, I could have at least packed more stuff for lunch and dinner in my suitcase. Instead, I paid $80 for one bag of groceries on the island and ate Cheetos and Reeses in my hotel room most nights. I emailed the staff since getting back and have not received a response.....
My family and I once again traveled to Providenciales and stayed at The Sands at Grace Bay. In my opinion, it's the best place to stay on the island. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, good food at their restaurant, Hemingways, and close to just about anything you need as far as shopping and even restaurants. Or If you rather cook, you can do so in a condo with kitchen facilities. If you want to venture the island as we do, I would suggest renting a car. They do have taxi service if you can't drive on the right side. I went with my 86 year old Mom, my cousin and my 2 grandsons. It's a great place to stay if you are a couple or with children. They accommodate everyone. Hemingways restaurant has the best staff. Korna, Tracy, Yanelli and Marie were here since day one, and are simply the best! The rest of the staff there are wonderful too. Oh, and let's not forget the food, it's also good! Everyone there is nice from the Host and Hostesses to the cleaning crew. I guarantee once you go there, you will return. I can't wait to go back next year!
My husband and I travel somewhere for each anniversary and this stay was one of our two favorites. From check in the friendly service was top notch. I want to thank Easher for her part in the sweet surprise sent to our room for our celebration. :) Our room was clean and had everything we needed. Beach was gorgeous, and drinks from Hemingway's were delicious. Definitely can not wait to go back.
From the time you pull up, greeted with a rum punch and check in, the staff at The Sands are most friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and have nice views. Hemingways has perfect fare and great drinks. Some nights they have entertainment.
Staying at the Sands Hotel I will holiday there again I loved it it is a quiet Hotel lovely rooms the swimming pool is great plus there is a man made stream that runs through the gardens where some of the beds are placed so you can sunbathe and read without to much noise the beach is outstanding and a waiter will come out to the beds on the beach and serve you a cool drink I prefer this part of grace Bay beach as it is not as busy the sand is soft and you can walk into the sea with ease The rooms have all the facilities you need Washer Dryer small kitchen with microwave coffee machine and a shop for provisions if you want to do your own breakfasts it is not the place for wild parties and it is not the place for sheer luxury but at night you can where something special but relaxed Have a glass of wine a meal and listen to a Steele band if there is one on bliss
