We stayed at the Blue Sands just after the 4th of July holiday and weren't sure what do expect. We were plesantly surprised by updated decor, baths, wine fridges, and in some rooms, gas fireplaces. We stayed in the suite for two nights and then a double room for two nights... the suite had a great little kitchen with stove and fullsize refrigerator and two bedrooms and a great view of the ocean. The second room was typical hotel room plus fireplace, wine fridge and a brand new updated bathroom which was appreciated. The grounds include a nice little reading area and a very clean pool. Walking distance to Trader Joe's and a smaller market, the beach, the bath house and more. We'd definitely stay again.
