“Great Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

We went as a group of 7 for a last minute getaway to Sandy Beach Resort and it turned out to be more than adequate. I loved the laid back atmosphere and the beach /location are the best I have seen in the UAE so far...but I have only been here 4 months.We booked a chalet (116) which was cute,clean , comfy and only steps from the beach.The food at the beach bar was Ok and dinner at the restaurant was quite good with excellent service.
The next time I go (and I will be back) I will be more prepared and bring along some groceries so we can grill our own lunch(bbq,s are supplied at each chalet.)
Only negative was the 4 busloads of day trippers( probably off a cruise ship) who made the service and cleanliness of the resort take a definite down slide.

Room Tip: I liked the chalet but I have read that the hotel rooms are nicer.

We first went to Sandy Beach in 2006, and it has gotten a fair bit bigger, and last year it seemed a bit run down, but this weekend it looked as if they have given the place a bit of TLC. Certainly the single bedroom chalet we were in had recently been painted and had a new bathroom.

The snorkelling around Snoopy Island was really good, and the guys in the Dive Centre know what they are doing.

It's never going to be a five star resort, but if you want to relax, fire up the barbecue and chill out, it's great.

Room Tip: End Chalets have less outdoor privacy

It is indeed an amazing location with a lot of potential however it is sad that the owners or authorities are not developing and maintaining it. its only advantage, is that it's facing the Snoopy Island.

entrance fees 75aed you get a broken plastic chair and you'll be able to use the dirty toilets and the smelly changing rooms.

The Hiegen basics aren't respected as well as the safety, they had no first aid kits, no safety measures in case of accident, no qualified staff that can help.

We had to run and get the help from the diving center (thank you guys) otherwise no one had the capability to assist our friend with her injury.

the Food is very expensive and inedible:

4 persons:
3 cola
1water
1redbul
2 chicken Taok
2 cordon bleu
2hommos
2cheese sambousik
1moutabal

for 600aed seriously???

anyway, I would suggets guys you buy your own snorkling kits on your way to Fujeirah. you can park few meters before and swim to the island from the neighboring area.

cheers

If you are chosing to go economical then this is the best choice. beautiful location, good rooms, awesome and frendly staff, clean beach and you can even park you car right in front of your room if you want.
The rooms are good and clean, I believe they have planend all the rooms to have a patio that faces the beach which is great! the beach is nice and clean and you can even just walk across to snoopy island on a low tide :-P
The staff were all frendly with an easy check in and checkout process.

cons: the only slight drawback was the food, had tired mixed grill from the Armourage restaurant and the breatfast was not 'excellent' everything else was fine.

It was one of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed. I rented a two-bed chalet as you are able to BBQ but my experience was dreadful and I wish we had stayed at home. The decor was awful, like something out of the 1970s. The air-con stunk badly, so much so that I did not dare put it on in case of legionnaires. We had no hot water and despite complaining the staff did nothing about it (I had a young baby with me as well so this was BAD BAD service). The BBQ was filthy dirty and very poor quality. The television in the room didn't work. Plus it was a tiny tiny space. In fairness the beach is lovely, the pool is ok (the towels are getting threadbare and could do with replacing). But that is it! I complained, they did nothing. Awful awful place. Do not waste your money because despite the 1970s conditions the prices are definitely up to date. Total rip off for the money. Honestly, go somewhere else!

Room Tip: There are no tips because this place is truly dreadful throughout.

I went with friends and stayed in room 107 which a stone's throw away from the beach. There is a kitchenette, fridge, cutlery, crockery for 4. Outside you can sit al fresco and barbecue - you can buy coal and lighter fluid from the hotel. Each morning someone comes and magically cleans the ash away! We brought our own food for barbecuing, alcohol & mixers so didn't need to purchase drinks from the hotel. Basically if you bring your own, you're all set for a 'cheap' getaway with friends.
There is a resident green turtle and plenty to see under the waters near Snoopy Island, it's advisable to bring your own mask & fins. The hotel itself is a little dated but very peaceful & a world away from the big cities of Dubai & Abu Dhabi. The water was perfect this time of year & the beach was very clean.
If you're after luxury, this is not the place. However, if you're looking for a no frills alternative break this is it.

We stayed here for a weekend of diving. We didn't use the resort's dive center as they were full, but there are many in the close vicinity. We stayed in the rooms, which are very spacious and has every thing you need, including a fridge (not a mini bar). The selection of TV channels is not great is you are western, but then again you are not there to watch TV! Compared to hotels in the area, I felt it was over priced, but having said that it has the best beach area around.
