We just got home after touring the mountains on our motorcycle for 2 weeks. Osoyoos was the middle of our trip so we decided to book the Sandy Beach Motel for 2 nights and take a little break. We chose the Sandy Beach Motel basically because of it's rating on TripAdvisor as #1 in Osoyoos. Trust me when I tell you - that rating is VERY well deserved. Sherry, Brent, and Donna are 3 of the hardest working people we have ever had the pleasure to meet. The place is absolutely beautiful, and feels more like a resort in Mexico (by design, incidentally) than a motel in southern BC.
We had a Lakeview Studio room, which was perfect for the 2 of us. It was very well equipped, everything was in new condition, and it was PRISTINE - as was the whole property. Everything about this place, including Sherry, Brent and Donna, makes you feel at home. It's a very social atmosphere, and we met some wonderful people there. Everyone is so relaxed, unlike a motel where you're lucky if you get a "hello" from someone you pass in the hallway. And I will never forget Gianni Fueco serenading me with "Blue Spanish Eyes" while my husband and I danced - a truly unforgettable experience!
I could go on and on about how beautiful, how clean, how relaxed, how convenient, how friendly, etc etc the Sandy Beach Motel is. But the most impressive thing was the customer service, and how very accommodating Sherry and Brent were. I have several years experience in the hospitality industry, and I know that you have to really love what you're doing to keep smiling and stay upbeat when there's so much work to be done.
But the best way to describe our experience there was in Sherry's own words when she said to me - "We're all family here". So, Sherry and Brent, from your brother Rick and sister Diane - we WILL be back. We can't thank you enough for all that you do.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and again welcome to the family. We appreciate you sharing your experience with those looking for a relaxing retreat in the south Okanagan. The layout is not typical of most resorts, but lends itself well to socializng and getting to know your neghbour. The extra bonus of having Gianni Fuoco here entertaining us with tenor voice and mandolin is definitely a highlight with many of our guests. Thanks again for the review, and we'll see you again and again! Arrivederci!
