“I'll definitely be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2011

The Hollywood Sands Resort is located in the perfect location! The first thing you notice when you pull up to the resort is how well kept the property is. Then you walk in the lobby and they have the friendliest staff with big smiles on their faces to welcome you, floor to ceiling windows in the lobby that look out to the pool area, and then you see it....the gorgeous Hollywood beach! The resort is small, very family oriented, but situated in such a way that it accomodates everyone. The 1 bedroom condo that I had was perfect for my stay with a little kitchenette, small livingroom, bathroom and large bedroom. I couldn't have stayed at a better place. I have already been recommending it to friends and will definitely be back to stay again!

I have been going to the Hollywood Sands every year since I was very young with my family and friends. We have loved it more each and every year! It's in a perfect location, right on the beach and the boardwalk. We have purchased a room over the years, and it has been great! The staff is fantastic, they are very nice, and they care about you and your stay at their resort. It's a wonderful place for families with kids from babies to teenagers, it's a very kid friendly environment. The pool and hot tub are very nice and convenient. The rooms are great they can fit a family, and they have very nice kitchenettes. We have met many friends at the Sands, its been the best. We have absolutely no complaints! My family and i will be going again this year, and we cant wait!

My boyfriend and I really enjoy the Hollywood Sands. It is not 5 star by any means, but the facilities are clean and updated, and the hotel is so convenient. It is the perfect getaway, with the beach at your doorstep. The staff is very accomodating- especially Marilyn! We will return!

I am currently an owner of one of the rooms. Every year we have about 40 people from my family go down to Hollywood Sands and stay there for about two weeks. It is the absolute perfect place, located right on both the boardwalk and beach. There is also a pool and hot tub within the facility. It is the perfect place to go as a family vacation. The staff is very, very nice and will assist you with anything you need. The rooms are very nice. I have been attending Hollywood Sands all my life and I will, for sure, continue. I highly reccomend Hollywood Sands Resort.

The Hollywood Sands is a great place. The kitchen has all up-to-date amenities you would want. It is clean and quite spacious for vacationing. There was a king size bed in the bedroom and a Murphy pull-out bed for our daughter. Both were quite comfortable.
The staff is helpful and friendly. The office has brochures and information for tourists. There is an attractive heating swimming pool and a hot tub. We didn't use either because it was too cold out for us. The kids who used the pool seemed to have a good time. The water in the pool was warm. The location is right on the boardwalk next to the Marriott. The price was fair and I would highly recommend the facility.

We went there to spend a peaceful week at the beach, but it was a NIGHTMARE. The place feels insecure, the units have glass doors, you can access from the street with no limitation, nobody at front desk after 5 pm, and in fact for the service or help they give they should better stay somewhere else. The unit does not have even the basic appliances, no blender, no hairdryer, the sheets did not look too clean, the towels all different colors, size, even quality, they all look really old and used, the principal bed mattress was terrible, it made noises every time you move, the pillows were totally flat, in general everything looked old and very used. It is a SELF SERVICE property, you have to bring the towels to the laundry if you need to change them, or if you need anything you should help yourself. Normally resorts clean the unit once a week, they do not. The pool area is so small, even the pool is like a tub, no beach chairs or umbrellas for the beach, not even renting them, you should find out yourself. They keep near the pool, behind a wall, a lot of things people left there during their stay, no order, no cleanness at all. Everyday workers were all around the place, things of other units were placed in front of our unit while they were doing maintenance, ashtrays with lots of cigarette butts were left in outside the units, you can imagine how it smelled. We ask for few things, not important really, but always the answer was no or we can not help you, we did not have relation with the staff, no problems with them during the week. The place was with very low occupancy, I can understand it now! and the day we were leaving we requested a late checkout, that was denied, we delayed packing never thought a late checkout could be denied with no occupancy, but normally you can be charged for it, but no, the woman at front desk that morning knocked very hard our glass door and said she was calling the POLICE to get us out of there. We were there my husband and my two daughters, one is a little girl of 5 years!!!!! I tried to call the Vice president of the resort, he did not answer the phone and did not return the call ever. When we were leaving the woman said "HOPE YOU NEVER COME BACK" for sure we will not, it is a TERRIBLE PLACE, THE WORST OF ALL

If you are traveling to Hollywood Beach, look no further. This was our 4th time to the area but our first time at TheHollywood Sands. We rented the two-bedroom condo facing the ocean. (There is only the one two bedroom). The unit we had is located on the main floor facing the Ocean. You literally open the door onto the boardwalk. The other door off the second bedroom opens to the pool. We were traveling with a 1 and 3 yr. old, so at naptime we were able to sit right off the bedroom (by the pool) and know that the kids were safely sleeping in earshot less then 6 ft. away. I would just leave the screan door open and actually get to enjoy an hour or two of quiet still in the sun. The unit was very spacious and the kids loved the pool. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The best part about staying at a resort / condo like this is the people you seem to meet there. Everyone was super friendly and you felt safe to leave your things out all day and night. They even have an area where past guests leave chairs, beach toys, umbrellas; pool floats for future guests if they don’t have room to take it home with them. We slept with the windows open and the brease fom the ocean is to die for. Hollywood beach is a great spot for families. You can eat and play all day on the beach and boardwalk. We always rent a car for day trips, but if you just want to chill on the beach there is plenty to do within walking distance. The new splash park for the kids was a big hit this year. Its about 1/2 mile down the boardwalk need the band shell. There is also a new trolley that takes you to the downtown area. There are a bunch of great restaurants there and lots more stuff for the kids. We loved the free fair that they set up at Young Circle for the kids. I think they do it every Friday. Anyway Hollywood Sands is perfect if you need a kitchen and separate living space. We have stayed next door at the Marriott as well and while it might be a bit more modernized, the convenience of a unit with a kitchen ,living room 2 bed and two bathrooms is a family must. The Sands accommodations are a bit dated and you can see that it is a older hotel, but it wads clean, friendly and safe and the location is a 10! We will be back 4 sure.
