Pink Sands occupies a beautiful piece of property, on a charming island, but is run down, and very disappointing at the high price. Our shower barely worked, mold in the shower, ratty, old, discolored towels, rooster poop on our deck that the cleaning staff never picked up, neglected landscaping, including plants withering in their pots, old outdoor furniture, etc. There...

My husband and I got married on Pink Sands beach in July. We were looking for something private and special - Just the two of us with our daughters (9 and 7yrs). I can honestly say that it was perfect in every way. The staff were all so friendly and Mark (GM) and Molly (event coordinator) (also our witnesses!) made... More

Yes, the beach is beautiful, the food great, and the service friendly, but the advertised "civilized simplicity" doesn't exist. At this price, we expected better. After we had booked the reservation there was radio silence from the resort. We tried to reach the resort by phone several times to obtain travel and connection information with no success. It turns out... More

We have spoken to this guest and have apologized for the many problems that they encountered. We close for the month of September and had some phone issues during that time and consequently were not aware of their need to be greeted at the airport which we normally do for all of our guests. In regards to the condition of... More

Outstanding service. we were piked up at the airport taken by a boat to the island and then by golf cart to the hotel. There were golf carts to rent to get around town. good food. A little over priced but good. And the Beach is Prinstine! Very... More

Took a quick trip (actually at the resort less than 48 hours!) but there were 10 ladies! Kind of a bachelorette weekend. I agree with other reviews, the location, the beach, the scenery and especially the staff were amazing. However, the value for the money is lacking. Yes, the villas were beautiful and spacious but for the price were lacking.... More

I cant say enough positive things about this hotel's location. It has THE best location on Pink Sand beach, it feels removed from the other hotels down the beach. Our villa was beautiful, spacious and had a very comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly and happy to help with anything you needed. I agree with one review I read... More

We have just got back from the Pink Sands Resort. We were there for 9 nights in August 2014. The resort is stunning. The cottages are large, spacious, quiet and I was hardly able to see the surrounding cottages as they are surrounded by vegetation. The view is also spectacular. The beach is out of this world and empty in... More

The cottages were adorable and true to the photos. The bed...comfortable. The bathroom...nice. The finishes...nice. The service...great. The beach location cannot be beat. The bar service and beach attendant...amazing. Next time...I need a cottage with the updated impact windows, because the wild roosters got territorial at 5:25am and I heard it all. My getaway weekend didn't include a lot of... More

The good news - unbelievable location right on a truly spectacular beach. Very friendly staff. But - really!!!. When we arrived neither the kids club or the main reception area/bar were open. The room had a spectacular view but was in poor repair with rust around the bath. Food in Blue Bar nowhere near as good as other places on... More

You want a great Couples ' Getaway? Well Pink Sands is the perfect resort. Villas are spacious, private with your own path to the Pink Sands Beach. Great room service and the town surrounding the resort is quaint and friendly. Great restaurants and the Golf cart transportation is fun.
