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!

I could not believe the Sun N Sand was opened again. Near beautiful Lake Michigan in South Haven MI and near the also charming town of Saugatuck this was a resort that was beloved for many years. It is romantic in a vintage old style family sense of a rural setting near what we southwest Michiganders refer to as The... More

We had a great time and are coming back again this August. Rooms are small, but we don't spend much time in them. Breakfast was a nice surprise. Staff were very nice and helpful with suggestions of things to do I the area.

Sun n Sand Resort is a unique, old, minimal comfort type of resort. It is a great value and on a nice piece of property which includes an outdoor, heated saltwater pool, a small sandy beach by a pond for the kids, and a firepit area. There is also a nice, white wooden patio for outdoor seating. It is a... More

The resort was great. Even though the weather was cold and rainy the room was warm and cozy. We had a pretty view of the pond and everything was spotlessly clean. Nice breakfast offered. We would definitely go again.

Bought a living social deal for 2 night stay. Stayed in room 209 in the Beach House. Small, but not a big deal since not really in the room. The water pressure in the sink was nothing more than a dribble. Very frustrating! Shower pressure was barely any better. They never cleaned our room, just left a bag of new... More

Nice little place that we found at Living Soc. 2 nites for 1. Just north of town, we had a clean room, helpful staff and light breakfast. They had a nice setting with a salt water pool, fire pits and a water fell to the pond. Call ahead, open till mid Nov. and back in the spring. Would stay here... More
