We stayed for 4 nites in boracay but stayed only 1 nite in this hotel. We only booked our 2 nites at another hotel and decide to see other hotels when we get there before we decided to stay there on the last nite. We chose Sands hotel because it looks very nice and new and walking distance to Station... More

We were upgraded to the suite from deluxe room because there was no available deluxe when we came in, yet we booked via Agoda 6 months ago. The suite has a balcony afront the beach. Awesome! Generally, the room is nice for a 3-star hotel. Breakfast was fine. The pool is not too big but clean and looks cool at... More

I like the location breezy fresh atmosphere and the building is nice in white. The room is clean. Maintenance staff response immediately on our report for a broken water hose. The breakfast is great too! There's a captivating private pool in the center of the building and the rooms. The only ooops is that when we've checked-in, the receptionist doesn't... More

We arrived late at about 11pm the first night and our first impression with the building itself was good. It looked clean and well taken care of. Checking in though was a weird experience. The receptionist was quite rude. She seemed to have some sort of attitude problem, which was unexpected. I almost asked her if there was some sort... More

I've stayed in this hotel for more than 5 times already since the first year they started operation and so far, I have no complaints. The quality of the room furnitures and appliances (all top-notch) have not gone down even after 4-5 years of operation. And their room rates is still very affordable. One would expect to pay a lot...

Came here last minute and was looking for a quiet beachfront hotel away from station 1 and 2. This hotel is clean, right on the beach, and peaceful. The staff have all been nice and courteous. I would definitely come back here again.

Stayed for a week in this hotel, I say the room is spacious enough and the bathroom looks new.
