We enjoyed our stay at this resort. Though we were not part of the timeshare we were not treated as second class citizens. The staff were great and the resort offered everything imaginable from direct access to a private beach, barbeques with covered dining, a basketball court, horseshoes, free movie rentals and more.

The location of this property is ideal. There is a huge, sandy beach that is about a 10 minute walk from end to end. The property is about a 40 minute walk to Kings Beach (most of it on the beach, but about 10 minutes from Tahoe Vista Recreation Area to Moon Dunes beach along the road). The resort offers... More

This resort has the best beach--very shallow and warm water. It is kid friendly and safe, as the kids have to walk over 100 yards out to have the water past their belly button. The outdoor amenities are great--basketball, sand volleyball, Boccie ball, horseshoes, etc. Kayaks and stand-up paddle boards can be rented right on the beach. There are movies... More

I stayed at the Tahoe Sands for 5 nights in an upstairs studio. The resort is older and in need of upgrades. I gave it four stars mainly due to the property location. The resort had a Murphy bed that wasn't very comfy but I've slept on worse. Like I said it needs update but was clean and had everything... More

You can't get better for the location - right on the lake with a super beach. You can tell that this timeshare resort is very family oriented and doing what they can to spruce it up here and there. However, they need to bite the bullet and upgrade the floors to either a more industrial type of carpeting, slate stone,... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and share your experience. I am sorry to hear that you experienced a significant issue with your carpet. Carpets are replaced often and deep cleans are done numerous times a year, however, with the non-stop summer use we struggle to keep things to the level we strive for... More

The property is unique because of its location, beach access, and solitude. There are upgrades to the property each year, and the units are clean. We love both the winter and summer fun. Really close to Northstar, which has winter and summer activities too. Its also close to Incline Village and the Hyatt casino. There are great places to eat... More

I see that that this hotel/resort has gotten some mixed reviews. Here's my opinion: You cannot beat the location as it has a private beach that's pretty expansive. Kayaks are onsite for rental at a much more reasonable rate than anywhere else around the lake. They even have some boat buoys. The resort is an older one however they are... More

The Tahoe Sands Resort. The sunny-side of the lake's best kept secret. Centrally located in Tahoe Vista, the Tahoe Sands Resort spans across four acres of open lakefront property and also offers a more private get-away hidden in the wooded acreage adjacent to the main buildings. Studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units complete with kitchens are available throughout the property. The large open grass area offers a great recreational space or a relaxing place for all guests. Our private sand beach, one of Tahoe's best, is just steps away. ... more   less
