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 It may have been a 5 star hotel 10 years back, but today the hotel is firmly outdated.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
