Great value for being on beach with an ocean view unit. Pictures on resorts website (www.vsaresorts.com) are accurate so you know this isn't the Hilton! Resort and room is clean and quiet. Beds are comfortable. This is an older resort with renovation starting in October with new Balconies. Air conditioning is available in the bedroom only. Kitchen has been renovated... More

The Ocean Sands Resort is a well-located resort with friendly staff. I enjoyed my stay in Virginia Beach and liked the employees, however the Ocean Sands will be soon addressing their "hodge-podge" interiors, and rear-facade no-balcony short-comings with a much needed, proposed future renovation.

My parents have been owners at this resort for many years. This year was the first year that I've come and seen some of their newer features like their allergy friendly room, waterfalls, and some of those "small touches," like beach towel card exchanges. After we arrived in our unit, we were taking notice of all the little things they've... More
