We could really recommend this guest house! Everything was perfect! Rooms clean, comfortable. Staff very kind and helpfull. Food absolutely delicious. A chef made us tuna steaks, tuna sashimi 😍 - perfectly done! Several trips organized by them - we tried mantas’ safari and sand bank. All very good organized.

Friendly staff, clean room, ok food. Glass drinking water bottles which is ofcourse great. However the bottles are not cleaned good enough. There is mold in the inside of the cap. Reported this to the staff. They changed the bottles in de room but the next morning at breakfast there were dirty bottles again. So we ended up buying plastic bottles from the supermarket. Sea beach and snorkeling is nice. Not enough umbrellas and sun beds on the beach. We had to use those from the neighboring hotels. There are a view other restaurants on the island. We liked the Thai restaurant (Sea la Vie). Boat to the Island takes about one and a half hours and it is not a nice boat trip. Even the weather is great the sea is most of the times very rough. Best to sit and the back of the boat.

Place is really nice i stayed for 4 days in this place, people were so kind and helpful specially Mr Mous’ab, he is so gentle and helpful man, i liked the room so much it was so big, actually i booked for a Deluxe room but Mr Mus’ab gave us a family room with balcony which is so nice and kind from him, food is totally amazing, breakfast has lots of variety it’s an open buffet actually, hotel is so near to the beach area, I enjoyed my stay in this amazing hotel. And also they gave us a free dinner at llast night as a compliment 🙈I’m speechless to thank them about this. Thanks so much guys for your amazing hospitality. Maybe it’s my first time to visit your place or even Ukulhas but of course it’ll never be the last time and I’ll always choose West Sand because they’re the best in my opinion. I highly recommended this place guys.

We had a lovely weekend staying at this eco-friendly hotel - just right in front of the beach. Clean room, spacious bathroom, great food and friendly staff. It also had a nice view from the room balcony which came as a plus point for us. Absolutely loved the food. It was home cooked, very tasty and fresh. We hope to come again another time and will recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a short stay in Ukulhas. :)
