Some great things about Sands is that it has an indoor pool and outdoor pool and a lazy river ride...ocean is a short walk down beach.. Fitness room and gift shops are another plus...also has two great restaurants and the... More

Let me start by addressing the hotel directly because they've been taking the time to respond to reviews here: Calling only the positive reviews "honest and helpful" implies that the ones with negative comments were somehow dishonest, and this doesn't really help your case any. That said: I don't have any of the horror stories to share that others here... More

For our 2 week honeymoon we decided to stay for our longest portion on the beach in our Ocean Front Room...booked with a local company known as Myrtle. .... Vacations. They rent owner suites. We were told it was an oceanfront room only to find it a "MARSH" View. Upset to say the least I phoned the vacation rental company... More

Thank you for your review We apologize for this disappointing honeymoon experience. The condition of this particular unit does not sound like one we manage. It was possibly an owner's unit. Regardless, there is no excuse for the condition of the room. We appreciate your feedback and we are happy to hear you were refunded by our management staff. We... More

Went on vacation with family to this resort for a baseball tournament. We were very fortunate to get room 905, which was clean and updated. Many other parents of players on team were disgusted with their rooms, which were very dirty and very old. We also had daily housekeeping service, which is more than others could say. Garage is a...

Great place to stay, and would love to go back. Love the live music, and the fireworks on the beach every night. I also loved having a bar and a restaurant right next to the pool. So convenient and easy to get into.

Upon arrival there was a traffic jam of vacationers trying to navigate the parking lot. Suspect looking bellhops were very rude offered no verbal communication and you had to ask for a key card to get in the parking deck after being insulted about the amount of items we packed for the trip. The lobby was musty and dated the... More

Have been staying here for 15+ years . Time has taken a toll on this hotel. We are not picky travelers, but do expect a room to be clean, at the very least. I'm sad to report that this will likely be our last stay here. There are too many hotels in MB to have to settle. Location is fantastic,... More
