“Great Place”
Reviewed February 5, 2002

My family and I have been going to the Desert Sand for over 15 years and it is a great place for couples and/or families. It has great accommodations, location and staff. You can enjoy a relaxing vacation taking advantage of their decks/pool/spa and at the same time, it is conveniently located to many attractions at the Jersey Shore. If you're looking for a nice, quiet place to spend a vacation at the shore, try the Desert Sand!!
