While right on a highway, this hotel is a little out of the way. Don't expect to be able to walk anywhere, though it's any easy drive to many towns. The staff is exceptional -- couldn't do enough for us. The grounds are lovely, including a pond with water feature, volleyball net and fire pits. The rooms do need some... More

Staff is very friendly and helpful! Rooms are cozy, beds are comfy! The salt water pool is so refreshing! I hope they bring back the breakfast. So nice not to have to leave the premises if you don't want.

Tiny room, uncomfortable mattress, geese "waste" everywhere, non-working air-conditioner (was not fixed when reported nor was another room offered nor was a "comp" offered). The grounds are beautiful, the pool was nice, and the staff is friendly but I cannot recommend this place to others. It is way to expensive for what they have to offer and if I return... More

Like others have stated, this is a nice, old school, "retreat style" resort. It was a very quiet and calm place to stay. My wife and I went, but it would have been great to have been here when the kids were young. The staff is extremely helpful , courteous, and prompt. It was clean and quaint. It is a... More

Two years in a row our family has stayed at the Sun N Sand Resort in South Haven Michigan and we enjoy the simplicity of this resort. It is nice and clean but definately not for everyone because the hotel still gives you the feel of stepping back in time to mid-century family vacations. The bathrooms are vintage, could use...

We were here last June (2014) almost to the exact date that we were here this year (2015) We arrived there a couple of weeks ago and stayed a Sunday-Tuesday ... We had an amazing time even though it rained most of the time we were there .. We loved swimming in the awesome pool and walking the grounds ..... More

We stayed for a long weekend. The hotel isn't right in town, nor is it on Lake Michigan. It's close though. The first two days it was only us and one other group at the resort. I think the resort looks a lot nicer in photos and online. The rooms are pretty small, the "Kitchenette" is just a mini-fridge and... More

Twenty-nine people were on our tour bus as we stayed at the Sun n Sand Resort. The staff was extremely accommodating and carried our luggage to our rooms for us. We were only there one night, but the staff prepared two fire pits for us to enjoy for the evening. We roasted marshmallows and sat around the fire. They had... More

For the last couple of years, we "discovered" Sun N Sand and South Haven. For us, Ms Rita and the front office staff made this place worthwhile. They went above and beyond to recommend places (making calls for kids diet restrictions), shift reservations, assure adjoining rooms (monitoring medical needs of kids) in a manner of "family." This kind of attention... More

We visit South Haven every summer for fruit picking. Every year we stay at the Sun n Sand. We love the 2 room suites for our family. The people are always nice and helpful. We plan to visit every year!
