We've just returned from a fantastic 2 nights in Sandy Beach. It was a much anticipated visit after lots of friends stayed at the resort. It didn't disappoint, we were well prepared for basic accommodation and relaxing evenings bbqing. The massive beach had plenty of sun loungers to go around, and you can rent the snorkels. There are so many... More

we went with our family. We had a double room and the children and Grandchildren were in a chalet. The gardens were lovely. The rooms and the chalet are simple but adequate and the view out towards Snoopy island was great. The catering let the hotel down somewhat, but we used the Barbecue which came with the chalet. The prices... More

In many ways charming (the lawns, palms, flowers) old style chalet type resort with a stunning beach setting. If you want all the mod cons steer clear but if you want a getaway with kids it could work for you. The food was solid rather than imaginative but well cooked. The mezzo items were however excellent.

Ok so this is not a Dubai style 5* resort, but that is not what I was after. It was really reasonably priced for a delux double. The staff were lovely, the diving opportunities were fabulous and the food in my opinion was excellent. We had a great night there and will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Sandy Beach Hotel & Resort for one night so we could go diving the following day at Divers Down. This place was probably a 5* resort in 1980 but it hasn't been updated since. Everything was clean and there seemed to be plenty of good facilities. And the location is pretty amazing. Breakfast was better than... More

For someone who lives in Dubai surrounded by 5 star this, 5 star that, glitz, glam and complete over indulgane this is the PERFECT get away spot. Went down with my other half and two friends, rented a 'villa', two rooms, which were quite big, with beds that were very comfortable, a small kitchenette and a small living with a... More

We spent 2 nights here (Weds and Thurs) and had a wonderful time. Really relaxing, very nice double room (number 603) and everything was easy. Best bit was the gorgeous beach and being able to just walk into the alluring Indian Ocean and swim to the edge of Snoopy island for amazing snorkelling. We saw a 2m white tipped reef... More

Fantastic location and beautifully laid out, very much back to basics and in the middle of the nature. So quiet and so relaxed, birds singing, kids playing, groove playing and drinks flowing. Snoopy Island is beautiful, saw schools of fish, several sea turtles and a black tip reef shark on several occasions. The food is not spectacular, but bring your... More

The location was the best among all the hotels in the area. We requested for the sea view room and the staff recommended us to stay in a bungalow that got a living room and a separate sink which was a bit more expensive and useless for us because we didn't cook bbq. Our room was standard nothing special for... More

I dot know the room rates so can’t comment people finding its overpriced, but the pool and beach access is really cheap. Price of snorkeling and diving very reasonable. Food for sure is the worst I ever eaten in any hotel in UAE. Over all my day was good and will always return back.
