We were here for our honeymoon in 2012 and absolutely loved it. The resort is more intimate than the other resorts the travel agents tried to sell us on. The infinity pool is lovely with the view looking out over a lovely bay where dolphins swim. The hotel service is top notch and we enjoyed chatting to the staff. The... More

The best thing about the Sands Hotel is the ring of rocks surrounding the swimming area of the beach. This attracts all kinds of fish from the coral reef, which makes it ideal if you want to snorkel from the beach. My husband even saw a lion fish out there. We loved trips out over the reef in the free... More

We had selected this hotel based on its ranking on tripadvisor. You do have a hotel on the beachfront, large rooms, big pool with a sunset view, a fantastic bar but the hotel needs some renovation. The rooms had a old colonial design with old paint flaking off. An old yellowing bathroom. The pool is made of concrete with moss... More

We had two relaxed days in the hotel. It is quite nice because they do not have so many rooms and I think all have sea view (side or direct). On one day we liked the food (dinner) very much and on the other day it was not so good and tasteless. We don't like the dishes of plastic on... More
