“true with the tagline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Sun n Sand is a very old hotel of mumbai but with time they have been renovationg it to suit the guest needs, taste, etc. very nicely done up hotel at the beach with good service and excellent food. their tagline "small enough to listen and big enough to serve" fits them with complete truth.

Room Tip: choose sea facing room. its little more expensive but worth the feel/view.

One of Mumbai's oldest hotels.
Had the pleasure of spending about 5 night here over a few weeks for business

Gladly stay here anytime in Mumbai - there are more luxurious hotels but this place has a feeling u can't buy

Nothing like diner outside with the sound of the surf behind you
Or waking to beautiful sunshine in the beach

You don't even realize the chaos just outside the gates

The Property is one of the oldest in Juhu. The swimming pool is one among the oldest pools in Mumbai. This 5 star hotel has over all good staffs. Friendly and informative. The Rooms are old types but immaculate presentation. The Beach view and the restaurant make you Relaxed. Some of the prominent people in Juhu would visit this place to use its facilities like gym, Pool and Restaurant. This hotel stands in the pool of hotels near by and stand out on its uniqueness.

Room Tip: The sea facing side has good locations

The hotel location is very good. Its located right on the Juhu beach and has convenient access to the beach. I took the ocean view room, the view from the room is excellent. Room service was very good, staff very well behaved and courteous. Breakfast was excellent and the food I ordered in the room was also delicious. Overall I had a very good and hassle free experience, strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Take ocean view rooms

Once again had the same memorable experience at the Sun n Sand. The great view, caring service with smiling faces. Its just the same. I just hope they do not try some new stunts and continue providing hospitality the good old way.

Room Tip: Even if you have to pay a little extra, go in for the Ocean Facing rooms

AVOID AVOID AVOID NOT RECOMMENDED

This is no more than a 3 star hotel, never a 4 star and they are claiming 5 stars eg same as Oberoi, Hyatt and Sheraton, what a joke!!!! Plus the place looks like a Slumdog moviue set, draped in white plastic every where so obstructing the view from the so called pool view rooms.

They did not tell me when I checked in at 4pm from an Emirates flight that the room they were putting me in on the 4th level with an Agoda booking fully paid by credit card was right under the level they were renovating with jackhammers and percussion drills during the day.
Consequently the load noises woke me up drove me to complain to management. Seemingly very nice they showed me room 221, at the opposite end of the noises and I agreed to move. 15 mins later they sent a bellboy to who took me to a room on the 3rd level and now intermediate between the 5th level percussion and the ground level bar renovation - ditto drilling noises.

I complained again - LOUDLY - and about 10 mins later a lady arrived to say the 221 (with a "pool" view, which it did not really have, see later) was not available because of pest control. I have been India too many times and immediately I smell a rat. Protested again – VERY LOUDLY AS I WAS VERY TIRED - JET LAG – only now for the lady to say the pool view room would be an extra Ro1000 per night. I got really angry – both the 3rd level and 4th level rooms were not habitable during the day and were not as per Agoda booking. Finally after a further delay they let me have 221.

Here are some other things wrong that they need to fix – mould in the shower, very limited breakfast for European, very India-centric with only eggs and cereals, fruit and a few tasteless breads and cakes. Or greasy hashbrown and bacon or sausages swimming in fat, or anaemic tomatoes capped with hard cheese.

After my run in with management about uninhabitable rooms my conclusion is this is not for business people, and I do NOT recommend. Especially during the monsoon season and during renovations.

Room Tip: Avoid any rooms at the front of the hotel under the 5th level renovations. Avoid the sea view rooms...

Thank you for your feedback.

The Presidential Suite has been under renovation since early July and scheduled to be completed by mid of September. During this period we have ensured that all the rooms below the Presidential Suite are blocked and not allocated to our guests (a total of 15 rooms). In your case it seems that there was an error on the part of the Front Office and I deeply apologize for the lapse.

I've seen the pictures that you posted and a corrective action has already been put in place. The outdoor area needs to be covered during the monsoons as a large part of it is used as Banqueting Space for our guests whereas the area by the pool operates as an outlet to serve our guests using the Health Club and the Swimming Pool.
