Sun-n-Sand Hotel, Shirdi
Ranked #9 of 81 Hotels in Shirdi
Reviewed January 11, 2014

i stayed at this hotel during September 2013 for the first time, though I visit Shirdi every year. I usually like to switch hotels, to give my children a new experience of visit.

I believe, that having stayed at St Laurn, I would definitely debate Sun and Sand as only a 3 star hotel. It may have been a 5 star hotel 10 years back, but today the hotel is firmly outdated.

There is nothing in this hotel that classifies it as a 5 star. They have 2 restaurants- both are just average. Italian restaurant serves authentic Italian food!!! If you think that you can crave for that kindda attraction at Shirdi then YOU ARE THE PERSON this hotel is looking for! Room service is a drag. Food served is average and so is the menu line up (except ofcourse the ITALIAN).

This hotel has perhaps forgotten that as age advances, so does the definition of luxury and comfort. Other new hotels in Shirdi (most notably Best Western) also provide the same amenities which are called luxury at SUN and Sand. My advice: If you are looking for 5 star - go to St Laurn, If you are looking for value for money- go to Best Western

Stayed at the Sun-n-Sand in Shirdi - our second stay in this hotel. What I like about the hotel ? Plenty ! The proximity to the temple, the 24 hour temple pick up and drop, the open spaces, the large rooms, the nice breakfast spread... The service is fast and efficient - and smiles are free of charge. The Little Italy vegetarian restaurant serves marvellous mouth-watering pizzas and pastas - and for a hard core non-veg like me, that's the highest accolade I can give. The view is wonderful as well. Felt as content in the hotel, as in the temple at the feet of Baba. Will surely come back - again and again.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor for an undisturbed view !

Without any doubt, when on a pilgrimage to Shirdi, comforts may not be a priority, but cleanliness maybe. So after a porthole filled, back breaking road journey, the hotel was clean enough but had a queen size bed, considering the fact that i took a premium pool facing room in which one expects a King size bed for a couple. But they loose out on minor issues; like no choice of tea or coffee, room did not have robes or disposable bedroom slippers. Breakfast was a let down; no cheese at all. But again; it was a pilgrimage and i would still stay here again.

I stayed with my family and extended family in this property for 2 days and a night and would say that our experience was quite pleasant. The property looks very clean and spacious, quite ample parking space and a spacious lobby. The staff were very courteous and responsive and professional. They did everything to help you and make yourself comfortable and did not fuss at anything. Although we had booked enough rooms through our agents we were short of one bed for one of the children in the group. They were very forth coming and gave us various options on what to do, finally they gave us one extra bed complimentary for the child. Although this was a generous enough of them to have done this, it never surprised us because of their excellent attitude in helping the guests. I only wish I still remember the young lady in the front desk name her and appreciate her but dam it I just can't recall her name. But I can say from her name that she is a christian, if that would help figure out who this lady is. She was really good friendly and very pleasant. We had complementary breakfast at this hotel and I should say that the breakfast was excellent.The staff in the restaurant again were very polite & gentle . I'm not sure if it was the F&B manager or the front office manage, but he was around with a smile and inquired about the food and experience with all the guests. We told him how we enjoyed our stay. I should also mention that the have a huge backyard with a swimming pool, gym and some play area for children. This is indeed an advantage for guests to engage children and also relax. The swimming pool was not very big not not that small though, it was clean the children had a great time there. However, some gym equipments were not in working condition when we visited. The rooms were a little small compared to other 5 star properties, but we've experienced even smaller rooms else were in Malaysia. I would say compared to the overall experience that we had, its ok with the size of the room. I would definitely consider going back to this hotel and stay. There is value for the money you pay!
