The location is fantastic and the room was perfect, but the best thing is the great people and service but above all the food is amazing. We have stayed there several times and will anytime we are in Sydney.

The room was clean and tidy. The location was very good with great access to public transport and the beach. Food at the bistro was nice and cheap. The only negative is some occasional noise from the outside bar, but this was solved by closing the window!

Staff in reception are always very friendly and helpful! The Room Cleaners always do an excellent job, and are friendly! The food is so nice, YUM, and very reasonably priced! There is a shopping centre right next door - Doctor, Bakery, Woolworths, Fruit/Veg Shop, Chinese Restaurant/Take Away, Chemist/Newsagent, Beauty Salon! Everything that you need without driving anywhere!

Once again another great trip. Probably the only negative would be that there is no 'do not disturb' signs you can put on the door so if you are having a little nap expect to be woken up by cleaning staff entering or trying to enter

We had a family room with a queen and two single beds. The room had a fridge and a microwave. The bathroom was a good size. The hotel is 50 metres from a small shopping centre. Food is easily available and parking is no problem. There is a small playground close to the hotel also.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sands Hotel in Maroubra offers the perfect 3.5 star (AAA Rated) accommodation base for exploring the wonderful Eastern Beaches of Sydney. We are like a friendly, first rate country motel and pub - only ours is just 20 minutes from both the centre of Sydney City and the airport! The Sands Hotel Motel consists of 15 rooms, all with free WIFI, ensuite, balcony, reverse-cycle air-conditioning, fridge, kettle, toaster, free tea and coffee, flat screen digital TV's (with over 20 channels to choose from) and daily servicing. Our Deluxe rooms are larger and are positioned to the quieter rear of the building, away from the street. Some Deluxe rooms are available with inter-connecting doors; ideal for large families (please call to check availability). All our rooms are on the first floor (up a short flight of stairs), with the Bistro, bar, function room and bottleshop on the ground floor. We are a friendly, family-run pub in the South Maroubra Shopping Village. We are community minded, and committed to providing a fun, safe and family friendly venue with great value meals from our Bistro, and well-maintained facilities in our motel and bar. There's ping-pong, darts, pool and arcade games, KENO, TAB and of course... really good beer. ... more   less
