Ocean Sands is located in the center of the VA Beach boardwalk and is convenient to everything the beach town has to offer. The units are well supplied with kitchen utensils (each unit has a full kitchen), linens and towels. Since it is at the beach, be aware that the units are small. Two people is the most that will...

Solid 3 to 3.5 stars. I visited this resort after reading glowing reviews off of trip advisor. A lot of the reviews here are by timeshare owners who own a unit in this building and therefore are overly optimistic about their experience. There is simply no other explanation I can think of. First thing to note is this is a... More

I have been an owner here for several years. This year I was kind of surprised by a special assessment to add balconies, but I think it will enhance the experience. They have kept the maintenance fees relatively low, so I guess it was necessary. As always, I had a great time. This is a great week to own at... More

My wife and I have owned our timeshare at Ocean Sands since 2001. We primarily go there to take our son. We have to admit this place has come along way from where it was. They have made major upgrades over the years and are in the process of adding balconies. The only downside are the fees I consistently pay,... More

As an owner I like what I'm seeing at Ocean Sands. The staff as always is eager to go the extra mile to make sure our stay meets our expectations. It's nice to know I can rely on them. Really happy with renovations that are coming, especially the new balconies. Great location. Can't wait for next year.

We had a great time over Labor Day Weekend. Staff were very friendly/helpful at all times. Sure wished there was a balcony, was told they will start construction of balconies in Oct this year. Great location - right on the beach. Resort Bar/Grill was a good place to grab a bite to eat/drink and sit/watch the Boardwalk. Rooms are small,... More

We enjoyed our stay. Just enough space for our small family. Two adults & a young child. Everything is provided that we needed. Elevator & hospitality room needs to be renovated, but other than that great location. This is our 4th summer staying here.

This has been the third year my family and I have vacationed in Virginia Beach and stayed in the Ocean Sands. Throughout our vacation we loved how the resort was right on the beach and how we could just walk down the street for entertainment.

We lucked out when a family friend gave us this time share for free. The hotel is nice. The staff is friendly. Free washer and dryers located throughout the resort hotel. They seem to have daily activities planned for the kids. We had two rooms that were well equipped with a mini kitchen and jacuzzi bath tub. The only draw... More

This was my first visit to Virginia Beach, being a Myrtle Beach die-hard. The Ocean Sands seemed comparable online to the hotel/condos we had visited in Myrtle beach. Overall the hotel (condo? Time share?) was nice. It's right on the beach, which apparently isn't as common as it is in MB. Several hotels we looked at were several blocks away!... More
