Had a wonderful time at Ocean Sands resort. Darcy was very helpful throughout the booking process in regards to the best unit for my group, sleeping arrangements, etc. View was amazing, room was very clean and comfortable, kids loved running around the grounds, playing in the playground, swimming in the pool. Great location. A great holiday.

Lovely stay at the Ocean Sands resort. Apartment was spacious, clean and bright and had everything we could need. Great to have an onsite laundry too. Office staff on hand pretty much all the time to answer any questions on the resort or locale. We overlooked the ocean and could be on the beach in two minutes. Lovely long beach,... More

As our first resort stay with the kids it was truly a great experience. We stayed in suite 34 which is an updated 2 bedroom ground level condo with pool view and stocked with all the amenities including a excellent BBQ which we used a lot and the pool which the kids and ourselves lived in pretty much our whole...

We stayed in suite 36, which is a 2-bedroom pool front suite, with 2 adults and 3 kids. The pull-out and twin beds in one bedroom made this suite perfect for us - ideal for a couple and 3 kids. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. We had a brand new barby, which we didn't use, but... More

We returned recently with our two grandchildren to Ocean Sands and again had a delightful time. Rented a two bedroom unit overlooking the ocean which provided interest for the kids. A turkey vulture was eating it's prey on the beach so wished I had brought binoculars. The pool and hot tub were delightful on the one rainy day and the... More

The place is fabulous. right on the beach, and our unit (310A) was very private. We were pleased that there was an elevator down to the third level. But there were no dishes or glasses provided. So it was really a well-equipped hotel room but without room service. They advertise BBQs on the ground level but not for this unit.... More

Perfect spot. Family friendly. Quiet. Close to everything.The outdoor pool is key for us! and the crazy low tides make beach combing a half day adventure at least. WIsh they had keyless entry. As well, there were not recycle bins in our condos. There were big recycle bins by the office however. We will stat there again. love the resident... More

Our family of four stayed in Unit 36 of the Ocean Sands Resort. This unit opens up onto a huge grass area for the kids to play on and as it turned out for us, meet up with the new friends they so easily made at the pool earlier in the day. We also had a great view of the... More

This is a great resort for families. An outdoor pool and ocean front. You can cook in the room or go out to restaurants close by that are really great quality. This is a great place to stay! We have been previous and the owners remember us it's like coming home:)
