Beautiful grounds, 2 fire pits, volleyball net, swimming pool, small sand area near pond. The small building next to the cottage rooms were an eyesore, window's open, siding missing, can see junk in the rooms, assuming they will be renovated eventually or clean up the outside so it doesn't make the rest of the property look bad.We stayed in a...

After spending a couple of years waiting for new ownership to return the Sun and Sand to the position and reputation it used to hold, the transition has happened. We recently spent two relaxing nights and found that the manager Cathy is working hard to rebuild the building and grounds. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming and... More

My mom, sister, and I decided to take a girls trip to Michigan and found this hotel through a deal site. We were so excited when we pulled up it looked so cute and vintage, a place out of an old movie. We checked in and service was great the woman running the desk was very nice and gave us... More

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. Like other reviewers, the rooms were quite small but that didn't matter too much as we don't spend lots of time in the room. The grounds were quite nice and huge. The staff were friendly and helpful. If we return to the South Haven area, The Sun n Sand Resort will... More

We have never been to South Haven and chose this with a groupon. I wasn't expecting much and was very surprised. The staff was amazing. They are all pretty young, but VERY nice and we were approached more than once to make sure we had everything that we needed. The room was very clean and the grounds are beautiful. We... More

Rita and her amazing staff made our week long stay memorable and top notch! The room was very clean, and the service was exceptional! If coming to South Haven for a few days, a weekend, or longer, this little Lake Resort is a beautiful Oasis just minutes from the exciting down town experience! They also have great Bagels in the...

This is the second family reunion we have held at this resort. Yes, the rooms are extremely small, but how much time do you spend in your room? The pool area is spacious, the pool is clean, and the area for evening bonfires is great! The staff is very accommodating, and the innkeeper, Rita, is friendly and will work with... More

It's a little out of the way and the rooms are very small. They are a little disorganized at the front desk (submitted my credit card three different times) but they are very friendly and the grounds are very nice. Stay with a group of friends or family and you will have a great time. Take advantage of the fire... More

My girlfriend and I wanted a quick girls getaway and we picked the perfect spot! Very quaint,fun place! The room was a little tiny but we did end up staying in the smallest room there. The stay was so relaxing and fun to say the least!

Not clean. Hair still in tub and pillow cases. Toliet seat still had stains from the previous guest (poops). Air conditioner window unit loud and dirty! Mold spores on the vents. Loud traffic noise from the highway. My husband and 5 yr old daughter (asthmatic) stay last night in room 209. All other hotels sold out, if not we would... More
