There's nothing bad that I would say about this hotel and place, is perfect! Exactly like you see in the photo or even better. The rooms are very beautiful, spacious with very good complimentary service with washing and drying macchine, a little kitchen we used it for our breakfast. The bed was very comfortable soft matter and soft pillow as per our request. In additional the resort offers for free bike, gym, tennis, canoe, beach towels, also sun cream and after sun in use. The staff was friendly and in the check out we request additional time in check out in 12 o clock and they give us 30 min, in 11:30 o clock. There is a supermarket with a distance of 10 min with bike. The only thing that they should pay intention is the name of company in money transaction, because after we book the hotel a day after a different amount has been maintained from the credit card from ocean side marketing we were very preoccupied and we think it was a thief and we make a request to the bank. The bank after the investigation find that the oceanside marketing was the company that owned the sand hotel and this process scared us so much. And I was afraid about the mosquitos, I bought spray but in fact there were no mosquitoes there, however the spray is good for any safety. In addition me and my husband explore some other resort of the area and we understand that we were so lucky we have chosen the best resort of the area! Highly recommend this resort and with this review I would like to salute the entire staff that serve us, it was a pleasure meeting you ( our room was 2304)
I am glad that I booked at the sands because with the hurricane there were a lot of hotels that did receive more damage. The first half of our vacation was great. The resort is beautiful. After the hurricane hit we had no power, water, a/c or wifi for days in our room. The hotel lobby did have power to charge phones and did have rechargeable lanterns that they handed out to all the guest. I must say that the staff did a great job after the the hurricane to make everyone as comfortable as possible and I would of given the resort 5 stars but considering the situation and speaking to other people at different resorts who had power, water and a/c I gave them a four. I did post before and after pictures with this post.
Sadly we arrived on Sept 2nd for an 8 day stay but ended up leaving Sept 5th due to the threat of hurricane Irma. We had booked through AIR Canada Vacations and were very impressed that the representative in Turks contacted us directly to let us know we had the option to leave early. We were also very impressed with the Sands. They provided information about the status of Irma on Sept 3rd and 4th to our room and we've been told they will be refunding us for the days we were unable to stay. They also put guests in rooms at the back of the resort furthest from the ocean as a precaution. We were extremely happy with our ocean view studio on the 3rd floor of building one. We had a large balcony with very comfortable lounge chairs and the room was recently renovated and had a nice tropical feel. This was our second visit to the Sands and will definitely not be our last. We are already talking about coming back in the spring. The location really can't be beat, on a very wide part of Grace Bay beach and walking distance to the Saltmills, Regent Village and Ports of Call. It took us about 20 min to walk along the road to Avis car rental which is across from the IGA grocery store. It's also easy biking or even a long beach walk to Coral Gardens where they have great snorkelling. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to visit the Bight reef on this visit but we did visit Smith's reef via rental car which I would highly recommend. You do not need to go out very far to see lots of fish. I also recommend driving along Chalk Sound and visiting Sapodilla Bay. The bay is always calm and the water is such a brilliant turquoise.On this trip we visited the following restaurants and enjoyed every meal; Hemingway's, Bay Bistro, Seven, Tiki Hut and Baci. So happy that the island did not sustain too much damage during the storm and no reported lives lost. See you soon!
We have been going to the Sands, with our 2 boys, annually for the last 10 years. We always go back because of the wonderful people that work at the Sands and Hemingways. It is a pleasure to return every year. Our thoughts are with you as Irma makes its way through T&C. Hoping everyone is safe!
It was a mini-vacation over Labor day (8/31-9/4). Again; exceeded our expectations. Great weather and an awesome beach with warm waters.Had to mention a great dessert of fried ice cream at Hemingway's and our morning coffee.The staff was very accommodating should any problem arise making our stay memorable and pleasurable.Our dinners included jaunts to Bay Bistro, Garam Marsala, Vix and Mango Reef-our usual haunt. Budget provided our rental-we were repeat customers. Airline was American through Charlotte. This was our fourth visit and will return to a place that welcomes a family and provides warmth. P.S.: thank you Howard, our concierge.Our thoughts and prayers go to the resort and its employees as Irma bore down on the Turks and Caicos hoping all weather the storm safely.
