My wife suggested that we stay at the Sands at Grace Bay hotel when we headed to Provo for the honeymoon we never had when we married. We went for our 26th wedding anniversary and had a great time. The grounds are beautifully kept with a variety of private and open areas to satisfy your every mood. The rooms are spacious with amenities such as kitchenette and washer/dryer. One very special aspect of this hotel compared to the myriad choices along Grace Bay is the beach layout. While every other hotel seems to cram as many beach chairs and umbrellas as they can into the cramped space on their beach, Sands offers guests plenty of space between seating groups along with low slung plastic chairs that can be set right at the water's edge so your feet dangle in the surf - wonderful!
The only reason that I can't give Sands the full 5 rating is that our "ocean view" room had only a sliver of ocean visible from our balcony - more like a "partial ocean view." Also, the concierge offered to help us schedule tours during our stay, but was not very helpful. The one tour they did schedule was booked incorrectly booked for the Sunday a week later rather than the upcoming Sunday, and we wasted our time waiting on the beach only to be told that there wasn't a tour scheduled that afternoon. When I complained to the front desk about the mix up, I had to contact the tour operator myself to reschedule and ask for a discount - the hotel did not offer to get us a discount for the mix up, nor did they offer us any recompense. The other tour we wanted to schedule the concierge couldn't even contact so we had to schedule this one on our own as well. You may have better luck with the concierge, but be sure to verify your reservations before the scheduled date.
