I think we are the first to review a stay in the fabulous Ocean Suite (room 101) at The Sands so I will focus mainly on the suite.
We arrived at the Sands at about 10:00 and were greeted with cold towels and a friut juice. The formalities took 30 minutes including a guided tour of the beautiful facilities and then we were shown to our suite.
It is huge! See the photos attached for details. Being ground floor it has a grassed lounging area outside as well as a covered terrace with sitting and dining areas. There is another terrace with chairs and a table outside the bedroom.
Inside is a lounge/dining area, huge bathroom with 4 person (!) shower and a large bedroom. Seperate aircon for both main rooms.
A bottle of wine and a fruit bowl awaited us.
The suite is right on the beach with uninterrupted views out to sea and La Morne in the distance.
I agree with the previous posters who have raved about The Sands. The location is ideal. At the end of the road, it's lovely and quiet. Having walked passed the Hilton, Sofitel and The Taj The Sands has much the best feel about it. It is smaller and more intimate. It blends beautifully into its' surroundings.
The staff are great, greeting us with a smile and remembering our names. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Our flight on Emirates was at 23:30 so we had to leave the hotel at 8pm. They allowed us to continue to use the suite right upto that time. We effectively had 4 full days for 3 nights payment.
We were very sad to leave after those wonderful days.
