“beware”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

My golfing buddy and I booked a room in the Sands a couple of months before our Feb arrival.I called on three occasions to confirm late arrival(midnight) and to assure that there were 2 double beds.We read past reviews and knew the higher rooms were in best condition and found out that our room was one that had been newly renovated . I loved the area and had been to their Tiki bar on past visits,so I was confident that it would be a great trip.
WOW....We walked in at 2pm to smoke soaked TIRED room with stained carpet and 1 bed. It did have a pullout love seat.The front desk couldnt help us as they were full. We went out hunting for other accommodations at 2:30 am and found something set up for the next day.
WE STAYED THE NIGHT IN THAT PIT ,PD FOR THE NIGHT AND CHECKED OUT AT 9AM.
HOW CAN YOU SCREW UP A RESERVATION LIKE THAT......The no care attitude is what upset me the most.......STAY AWAY

Opted on this location from internet. Clean hotel stay with accommodating staff. Only complaint is around the pool with limited lounges, (5 to say the least). Allow to sit at lounge tables away from pool, but I would not plan on laying out by the pool, unless you stake out the lounge early. Towels are small for use by the pool, also. Wifi service is best in the room if you sit close by balcony door. Views are good for the canal or the ocean. Lounge restaurant food is typical, but over priced, as are the drinks. Tourist prices. Still a good location to walk to the beach. Some entertainment on weekends only! Not much entertainment close by, so plan on driving to find it in Ft. Lauderdale from what we were told. Thin walls between the rooms in case you have late neighbors... 2:00 am tv noise

Room Tip: If you stay at this location, get a room on the South side, 7-8th floor for views. Some entertainme...

This place is old and tired. In bad need of a complete makeover. Food is mediocre, music is out of touch and the drinks are overpriced. Try Bokampers or the newly remodeled Shooters, you won't go back to the Sands.

Been coming here a long time by boat to the marina every season and have seen great improvements! The restaurant here has very nice views and hotel's lobby was remodeled! The food is OK but the drinks are perfect. The place actually is really good for a family with kids (and 2 dogs lol ). Everything is decently run & our family will be really sorry to see the longtime dock-master leave when he moves on to relocate & retire out of state in a few months.

Room Tip: Have a Rum Runner!

My friends and I pulled up to sands in my 32ft play boat and had a great time.
The drinks were really good and so were the fish tacos which we're recommend by our waitress Sarah. Who did a great job getting our drinks and food to us in a timely matter even though the place was packed.
I would recommend sands patio bar to any body. Stop in by boat or by car ask for Sarah and kick back and enjoy the tropics!

I stayed at the sands harbour with my mum . Great location and there was no issues with noise. We were on the 8th floor so had great views. The staff were fabulous, could not be faulted. We enjoyed the tiki bar and the food was good. General housekeeping was good. The room was comfortable and roomy enough for the two of us however it was dated and could do with a lick of paint. For a short stay Sands Harbour was just the job.

Room Tip: If you are staying in room 807 there was an issue with the amount of hot water. When I queried this...

My husband and I just stayed at the Sands Harbor this past week. It was a perfect place to stay for us since we were staying just steps away from the Pompano Dive Center. This hotel offers great views of the harbor, spacious rooms and decks, and plenty of room to hang our diving gear. I saw one review saying there were no hairdryers in the rooms however the staff was happy to deliver one to my room. The staff were all very friendly and accomodating. We had a fully equipped kitchenette in our room which was a nice feature. The beds were also very comfortable and the rooms were suprisingly quiet.
It was nice to get away from the hotel chains and stay at a place with a more "homey" feel to it. The only complaint and suggestion I have would be the need to update their curtains to keep more light out of the room at night.
Overall, we loved this hotel and look forward to coming back.
