It was a very relaxing night as soon as the door opened it smelled wonderfully clean and was comfortable for me and my fiance from the door to the bed to the bathroom would definitely consider going back

My family stayed the beginning of July. We took our girls here for their birthdays. Got in there around dinner time and went right to the boardwalk. Everything was outdated but we didn't care about this as we were just there for the beach and pool. We stayed over night and the next morning I noticed dead bed bugs in... More

I booked the vacation on booking.com and had a couple of issues..had to call them back to get a confirmation email and no way to choose a pet friendly room.

I'm actually writing my review on the way back home because I just couldn't wait to give the Sandbox a great review. For starters the staff is extremely friendly and helpful; very accommodating from the minute you book your room! The owner was such a nice guy and approached us several times to see how we were enjoying our stay.... More
