“Paradise Found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

I just completed a 7 day stay at Sands Villas Belize and was absolutely delighted! The property is beautiful! Omar, the full time gardener, takes pride in the common area and was constantly grooming and adding lush plantings. I stayed with my daughter and son-in-law in the oceanfront penthouse and the view was breathtaking! We watched dolphins swim by along with sting rays, and the pelicans teased with us by literally flying within inches of our balcony! There are 3 flat screen TV's. And the beds… I can honestly say it was the MOST comfortable bed I have ever slept in ANYWHERE in the Caribbean - and I have traveled to many islands! The property is nearing completion, so it is newer - which I liked! I also found the management to be very cooperative to our needs. Bubbles is head of housekeeping, and her name says it all. We were always greeted with a smile and asked if we needed anything. And I almost forgot to mention… pack light! There is a washer and dryer in each condo. Also a great grocery store directly across the street with the best prices on the island, and they will deliver the heavier items to your unit if you ask!

You could not ask for a better location on the island. You are a 5 minute walk to town and just minutes from the best restaurants, bars, and dive shops around! One last thing… don't forget to say "hi" to the resident parrots - Ding & Dong!

Sands Villas is a unique & elegant resort. Its brand new and spacious, with spectacular views, elegant furnishings, right down to the dishes and coffee maker, and a warm helpful staff. The location is the best on the island. Securely and centrally located. We could easily beach walk to town and mingle with the natives, browse the gallery-shops and fabulous restaurants, just hang out by the pool or do morning stretches on the pier. Close by is a grocery store, a fruit and vegetable stand (ask Dona Maria to blend you a gallon of fresh juice) and a blocks walk to Crazy Canucks, the most happening place on the island every sunday. Scuba Diving, snorkeling, sailing, wind surfing are just a few of the attractions, an easy walk away. Each unit is alike but different, personalized by the owner, not unlike a boutique hotel. Don't miss the laid back paradise.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views, but treat yourself to a beachfront unit.

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at Sands Villas. Great 2 BR/2BATH condo that we shared with friends had plenty of room, beautiful finishes and separated bedrooms (with extremely comfortable beds & pillows) & baths. Wonderful ocean and pool views from extensive balconies. Also the best view on the island for the New Years fireworks display. Perfect location across from shopping is walking distance to great restaurants and fun outdoor bars. This is the place to stay!

What a fun trip. Sands Villas were delightful. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the view was spectacular and the location was very convenient. We stayed with friends in a two bedroom unit, it was a perfect vacation spot. Everyone staying at Sands Villas (some owners, some just guests like us) were friendly and it became one big party. The owner even sent everyone on a water taxi out to a great spot for breakfast. You will never find better snorkeling than Belize and we have snorkeled all over. The only negative about Sands Villas is although the exterior is completely finished and beautiful many of the rooms are not complete, but this worked in our favor - it wasn't crowed!

Unbelievable, rooms not remotely like seen on Expedia. They have one room that looks like the advertised ones, they just don't give it to you. We literally were screamed at for asking to be moved due to the infestation in bugs in the tub and lack of cleanliness. They have not refunded our money and Expedia is zero help. I highly recommend going to the Grand Colony Island Village down the road, more money but gorgeous and amazing staff.

Apparently the condo owners and hotel management are having some sort of disagreement and most rooms are closed as is most of the resort amenities. Scary stuff....
