The hotel is hidden from the street by large manicured bushes and The Nest restaurant sits at the front. The hotel is serene and has a great pool area and jacuzzi. There are also beautiful plants surrounding the pool area and areas with butterfly chairs and fire pits to relax at. Great coffee in the mornings by the pool. The rooms are stylish and well-appointed. However, I would not get a room with a bath tub. In my opinion, it’s too small and hard to get in and out of unless you are petite. My bathtub at home is bigger. There are snacks and drinks available for a marked up price. We opted to get carryout and our own snacks. The bathroom soaps are amazing and I love the scent. Bath salts were not full nor replaced during the stay which is an unfortunate detail that was overlooked for paying more for a tub room. This place is not far from hot springs and Joshua Tree and more relaxing than Palm Springs. Lots of restaurants, entertainment, attractions and shopping within an hour drive. A couple things would make this 5 stars such as repairing or replacing the tile tables by the pool, fixing the paint on the large metal frame of the large bed / lounger at end of pool. Overall, a great place if you can afford it.

We hosted our wedding celebration at the Sands Hotel & Spa. I don't even know where to begin by saying it was the absolute best decision we could have ever made! The hotel is so clean, so adorable, so picturesque - every square inch of it is instagramable. The beds are incredible - the rooms are amazing! We were able to have all our wedding guests stay at the property for the weekend and it was like our own mini-resort. If you have a large enough wedding party - highly recommend the full buy-out option! The staff is the absolute cherry on top! They are amazing people that genuinely want you to have an incredible stay. If you get the pleasure to stay here (even if you are not hosting your wedding), they will take such great care of you! Olivia, Shanny, & Yazmine are the leadership team and they go above and beyond in ALL regards! If the management company is reading this - they all deserve raises! Our guests are still gushing about how impeccable the service was throughout the entire weekend. The Pink Cabana service and food is top-notch and we will continue to sing it's praises for years to come!

Spent Thanksgiving here on a solo trip && fell in love. This place was absolutely beautiful from top to bottom. The attention to detail from the front desk to the spa by Martyn Bullard was mind-blowing. Worth every penny! Trenice (I hope i'm not butchering the spelling) at the Spa provided the best service. It's having staff like her that make the whole experience what it is. She is truly an asset to the team and any property would be lucky to have her! Will be back ASAP

What an adorable boutique hotel!! The welcome staff were so gracious, Christian in particular. We were three mature women looking forward to a 'girlfriends' get-a-way. Christian treated us like we were his favorite guests. He got us rooms next to each other for convenience. The rooms were just lovely. Very comfy beds, good lighting and a spectacular bathroom with an incredible shower. The decor of the entire place is pink/black/white and stunning. We so thoroughly enjoyed ourselves that we each vowed to return with our spouses. Thank you for the lovliest time.

We just had our son’s wedding at The Sands, and the whole occasion was extraordinarily superb. I have never written a review on TripAdvisor before (despite having used it frequently); however, the excellence of The Sands compels me to write this review. Olivia Prescott, The Sands’ Events Coordinator (I think that’s her title), provided just impeccable service from beginning to end. She was extremely easy to work with, prompt and thorough in her responses to my inquiries, and excellent in her guidance. She recommended a wedding planner, Wild Hearts Events (run by Jaime Kostechko), who also did an extraordinary job – I simply cannot pay adequate tributes to Jaime. The first and most important aspect of The Sands’ excellence was the staff. At a time when so many employers are having difficulty finding good enough employees, the staff at The Sands were uniformly experienced, helpful, and courteous. Even though all the guests were vaccinated and tested, the staff went above and beyond to ensure that the whole weekend was COVID-safe. For example, every member of the staff was always masked. They so often went out of their way to help us and make our stay comfortable. The food, prepared by the on-site restaurant Pink Cabana, was simply amazing – they willingly accommodated our many requests, and the taste and presentation of their food was delightful. Also, their cocktails and mocktails were so delicious. With the help of Wild Hearts Events, an already beautiful location was transformed into a magical kingdom. And it was just plain fun - hanging out at the pool with all our friends, playing pool games and relaxing on the chaise lounges. We all agree that it was the best wedding ever, a much-needed tonic from the tumult of 2020-21. Indeed, as they were leaving, so many guests made a point of seeking out the parents to thank us for including them in this magical weekend, saying over and over again that it was the best ever. I’m writing this on behalf of the bride and groom as well, as they are heading out for their honeymoon in seclusion. Thank you - Olivia, Jaime and the whole staff of The Sands, Pink Cabana, and Wild Hearts: you have given us such a wonderful gift. An oasis in the desert.
