This is a challenging review. The grounds were lovely. The wait staff was sweet and charming. There grounds were quite peaceful. It was quiet and restful. It was a bit out of town, which did occasionally make it challenging to get around. I would highly suggest getting a rental car. We felt quite safe until we awoke to an intruder... More

The hotel has 6 cabins for two through the grounds, and a few more rooms in the main building. Because of the small size, it never feels crowded even when full. There are 3 main seating/sunbathing areas - one by the small but well landscaped pool, on the beach itself, and out on private dock. Personally I loved the dock... More

On arrival, you're hit with an air of sheer tranquility as the friendly hosts show you around the well kept grounds and accommodation. Singing Sands is a mini resort with its own beach, pool and oceanview cabanas as well as 'hotel' accommodation, set around the central restaurant and bar area. A pier extends from the beach, from where you can... More

Singing Sands is a nice looking hotel on the beach a few miles away from the main town of Placencia. As long as you have a rental car, it’s no problem, but I wouldn’t pay to take a taxi every time I wanted to go to town, nor would I be interested in riding a bike all the way there... More

Let me first say that the website represents the exact look and feel you expect. The staff is great, The restaurant is more than you would expect and the relax factor is 100%. Do not go there if you expect a tourist atmosphere because it is for you to unwind. The town is not far away and offers you a... More

For peace and quiet, you cannot go wrong with Singing Sands Inn. We stayed in the cabin with a double bed and a rollaway cot. The bed was ok, but the cot was not comfortable. The shower did not have a door, but we just took turns in the room. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful stay on a beautiful beach;... More

When we travel we like to stay away from the crowds which is why we chose Placencia and also Singing Sands for our week long stay. We arrived a little earlier than we had planned but everything was ready for us. We stayed in Cabana #1 which we would highly recommend, as it is away from the other cabanas and... More

We arrived after 32 hours of travel, welcomed with a smile and brief tour...loved this vacation spot, especially because of the attentive, (yet respectful of privacy ) staff members; the cabanas stayed cool and you could fall asleep to the ocean waves; the Honor Bar; the ease at which the staff arranged all adventures and taxis; location to local bars,...

Singing Sands was all that we could imagine! We stayed in a beach front cabana that housed beautiful views with direct access to beach, pool, restaurant and bar. The food was outstanding and so was the staff! We loved chatting with Valarie and Edwind who were welcoming and treated us amazingly. We highly recommend!

We just got home yesterday, but I have to say it was difficult to leave. If you are looking for beauty, cool breezes, peace, quiet and time to reflect (along with fun excursions if you want to), this place is for you. We stayed in a beach cabana #2, which is closest to the sea. No need of a/c because... More
