I am writing this review from a different perspective. As a wedding photographer we have the opportunity to work at many locations with couples on their special day. One of our favorite locations if The Sands! The staff is excellent at making sure everything is just right. They treat guest and vendors with courtesy and are incredibly professional but warm...

From the friendly greeting at the door by the owner, Jeff, through the pleasant service and the delicious, well prepared food, this was indeed one of the best Sunday breakfasts I've had in a long time. The menu featured most of the standard breakfast fare, but the food was served with a flare, and the coffee cups were bottomless. The... More

The service was great from the time we booked the room until we left. The rooms are large and clean and have a beautiful view of the lake. We stayed overnight for New Years and the package included a dinner, dance, snacks, room and brunch. Well worth it ! Bring your slippers though if your room is on the ground... More

I booked the Sands on Golden Lake for a one-night getaway with my mom. We also booked a mani/pedi at their spa for the afternoon we arrived. The hotel, restaurant and spa exceeded all expectations! The view of Golden Lake from every window was amazing, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had both supper and breakfast at... More

This was my 3rd annual Christmas Party stay at the Sands in Golden Lake. The rooms are exceptionally large clean and modern. The staff are friendly and helpful. The view from the rooms are out of this world and the sunset to die for. Our meal in the main dining area was fabulous, great portion and delicious also with an... More

The Sands is a road side small resort making it easy to get to plus the upside of sitting being a lake front property with a nice beach and tremendous view. I learned that the property has been renovated over the last few years. The rooms have been very well done and frankly much nicer & far more modern than... More

Our room was beautiful, comfortable and totally relaxing. The food was amazing and the hospitality of the inkeepers and staff was exceptional. I can't wait to return with some friends for a spa weekend. One of the best wellness spas I have been to, with an incredible view of the lake.

We were at Sands on Golden Lake for the weekend of October 16-18, 2015. Our hosts were spectacular. The restaurant is great with live entertainment on Saturday nights often! We really enjoyed our morning brunches and hiking the trails near the resort. All of the rooms are well appointed and very clean. There are stunning lake views from every room!... More

I'm very picky what I choose for hotels/motels or any rentals. After spending a nice day in Algonquin Park my husband and I where being greeted by friendly staff. By entering room nr 9 my enthusiasm change to totally disappointment. This is not the room as described on the website as 'newly-renovated' with modern furniture and fresh light colour paint...

Click Hepfull if it was please. Booked this for my elderly parents for a week to enjoy the great outdoors. The price was average but really I find $100 a night for Northern Canada a bit ridiculous but that is the going rate and actually cheaper than a cottage. The rooms were clean and somewhat dated but fine. The location... More
