The Sands was the ultimate relaxation! Upon arriving we were immediately upgraded from a Studio Courtyard to a 1 bedroom Ocean View. The unit was great, spacious and well decorated. The bathrooms were not the largest, but people need to realize they have major water issues on this island, and not only are you not spending a lot of time... More

This is a very difficult review. The Sands is in a good location, with a very friendly staff, a good restaurant (Hemingways), and the rooms have everything you need (including a kitchenette and washer/dryer). However, the rooms are worn down and need work. The bathroom in our studio unit is disappointing. The bed is hard and sheets are rough. The... More

Thanks for the review. We underwent renovation in 2008 and replaced a lot of the soft goods. Our interior designer purposely antiqued the furniture to give it an old Caribbean feel. We have replaced 90% of the beds and the remaining 10% will be complete by the time you read this review. More

I booked air and hotel accommodations for two through American Airlines. The travel to Miami was almost uneventful. Although the flight from MIA to PLS was delayed, WE made it a few hours late. The luggage, however, was another story. American Airlines gives you a luggage option when traveling to PLS: carry-on or lost. That seems to be a recurrent... More

Wanted to getaway for a long weekend by myself and decided Grace Bay was the best place to go. I found The Sands website and it looked great so I thought I'd try it out. Got there late at night and they were expecting me. I booked the studio (cheapest) room and they upgraded me to the oceanview (priciest) without... More

I went to T&C with my boyfriend for almost 2 weeks in December. The Sands is in my opinion very centrally located, close to the IGA and right on Grace Bay (the prettiest beach I have ever been on). The courtyard is gorgeous and the pools (while freezing, come on get some solar heating) were spacious and well taken care... More

Really I have nothing bad to say about this place. Matter of fact, only good things. The beach is fantastic, and long. Perfect for those who love going for long walks. The hotel staff is mostly good, except front desk, a bit surly and not the most helpful. But the operations staff is fantastic, pool and beach crew especially. The... More

Wife and I were very happy with our 5-night stay at this resort. Great location on Grace Bay with beautiful beach, pool and gardens. I would rate our room (garden view) as just as good or better than Sandals or Couples resorts. Excellent service from all staff with the exception of the front desk which in my opinion would benefit... More

I had booked a Studio Courtyard room at The Sands. This is the least expensive room at the resort. We arrived late due to a flight cancellation and checked in. After a long day of traveling the free rum punch at check in was much needed and went down easy. A nice touch. Our Studio Courtyard in building 3 consisted... More

We booked on cheapcairribean.com and got a competitve rate for this hotel. We thought we would have a king bed but we did not in our studio courtyard room. Even though the hotel was only 60 percent full they said they could not upgrade us without serious cost. The room had small bugs in the bathroom, generaly stained linens and... More

I recommend everyone visit our website for a detailed description of the bedding. The price difference between a Studio Court yard and Studio Garden view is $45. However, if we are sold out of studios and we only had one bedrooms available, the cost would be significantly more. Rooms are cleaned daily, and linens changed every other day unless otherwise...

The Sands at Grace Bay does charge guest for phone calls. The fees are outlined inside of the guest directory. Our front office staff will gladly call a restaurant or excursion to arrange a reservation. Another option to avoid hotel phone fees would be to rent a cell phone. They are available through our concierge. More
