This resort is older and in need of renovations, but the location is why we stay here. It has the best beach in Tahoe and is a convenient location close to other activities around the lake. I have been coming here every summer for 26 years. The summer months are busier, so it was actually nice to come in November... More

This place is fantastic! We'll be arriving back here for our second trip the day after Thanksgiving and my husband and I can't wait. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. We stayed in a studio on the lakeside our first time and this year we'll be in a 1 bedroom. This resort is located in...

We spend a week annually at Tahoe Sands and just completed our 20th annual stay in mid October. It is a timeshare facility in an aging complex in an absolutely stunning North Shore location with its own beach. An elaborate plan to demolish it and build a new complex was shot down by the area's implacably hostile planning authorities and... More

The best place there is to just relax stress free. Market is close (not walking distance) as are some really good restaurants. Unbeatable view of the lake and the resort has plenty of water toys for your use. Although it's an older resort it is well maintained. The units are being remodeled one at a time and although its not... More

Great location-nice beach, but resort is in bad shape. Our unit felt like 5th grade summer camp. ABSOLUTELY FILTHY carpet. It obviously hasn't been cleaned since ski season (2012?) We asked the next day about changing to another unit and we were told they were full. Not true. There have been almost no cars all week on the mountain side,... More

We have just spent a week at Tahoe Sands with friends who are Timeshare owners. Our first impressions were that the carpets needed renewing and the curtains as well were not in good condition, but the bathrooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The electric hob rings did not work but to be fair they sent someone in the... More

Tahoe Sands offers a family friendly, relaxed resort in a good location by the lake. The accommodation is the real downside being well overdue for a remodel. We stayed in the old motel block. The carpet and curtains desperately needed changing. The accommodation is due an update but no timescales. Even with the problems we enjoyed our stay. In summary... More

My family and I stayed at Tahoe Sands in early August 2014. It was delightful. Cute little cabins on the Mountain side (across street from Lake). There are rooms/cabins on the lakeside but probably harder to get. It was cozy and had just what we needed - small kitchen, bath, one bedroom - the kids slept in the living room... More

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.
