Read what our previous clients thought of Sands Suites Resort & Spa
The hotel location is great, however, the staff was not. We struggled starting on the first day. We almost felt trapped in the hotel, leaving was overpriced and we constantly felt like everyone wanted to profit from us. The food was ok and the drinks were very expensive. We were only impressed by the views, our room was also not great.
Excellent resort and we loved staying there. However,there was a no shorts/sandals rule for the buffet area for dinner that we were not aware of. Were also not a fan of getting charged for water but the food and service was excellent.
