Romantic place to go.Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Quiet - private surroundings
Cons: Needs some minor repairs
Location: Bistro restaurant right down the road. Waterfalls close by. Outstanding beach. Saling, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling with Jeff Scott of Daytrippers
Very sexy environment. Great staff and great guests. Everyone was a lot of fun, and I found it to be much quieter then other resorts we have stayed at in the last 5 years.

Fantastic small, quiet hotel on the beachPosted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: The small size, the private dock surrounded by blue ocean. The beautifully landscaped grounds which attract a lot of birds and other wildlife.
Cons: The wireless internet mainly works, but it can get patchy at busy times of day (primarily evenings).
Location: Many great trips out of Placencia (water and land), but you will need a pick-up at the hotel or a vehicle to get to the meet point.
The hotel has 6 cabins for two through the grounds, and a few more rooms in the main building. Because of the small size, it never feels crowded even when full. There are 3 main seating/sunbathing areas - one by the small but well landscaped pool, on the beach itself, and out on private dock. Personally I loved the dock - catching the full strength of the sea breeze, I could stretch out in the sun for hours without feeling uncomfortably hot. There were sometimes one or two children staying at Singing Sands, but mainly it was couples, so there was no endless screeching by the pool. The on site restaurant is amazingly good (people who are not staying at Singing Sands will make a special trip to eat there), and the prices reflect that. Budget accordingly, or plan to eat elsewhere. The location is both the plus and the minus to Singing Sands. Its out of town spot in quiet Maya Beach allows it to have beautiful, peaceful landscaped grounds. It is a 20-25 minute drive to Placencia village itself, though, so if you plan to get out and about, you will want a rental car. If you don't want to eat at the hotel every night because of the prices, there is nothing within short walking distance, so again transport is helpful.

Small hotel but with all the amenitiesPosted Mar 2, 2015
I stayed for 7 nights and relaxed on the beach, the dock, the pool, and the beautiful grounds. The staff was very helpful and the restaurant meals so good that we ate almost every meal there. It is a bit isolated if you do not have a car. It is eight miles to town of Placentia so you can bike into town but long ride in heat.

Ontspannend!Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: Voldoende privacy. Lekker eten, goed personeel, en een mooie omgeving.
Wij verbleven vier nachten in Singing Sands. Ontspanning was ons doel en dit hebben we bereikt. Heerlijk gegeten en kunnen relaxen. Ook nog even actief geweest met de kajak en een snorkeltour naar Silk Caye. Dat was echt geweldig. Kortom, het was genieten.

Great Place to Stay.Posted Jun 20, 2014
My wife and I had a great time at Singing Sands Inn. We loved that we were able to unplug from everything. They have Wi-Fi available, but we left the laptops at home. The staff, Armando, Edwin and Larence to mention a few, was extremely pleasant and helpful. They always greeted us with a smile, and asked how we were doing. The grounds were perfectly manicured and the pool was crystal clear. The dock area is a great place to have your mourning coffee while the ocean breeze glides past you. The restaurant is open air and beautifully decorated. Prices were fare and the food was very good. The cabanas/bungalows are quaint with a real natural flare. Everyone has their own front deck with 2 chairs and a small table. The Inn is close to town and a local dive shop as well as walking distance to 2 grocery stores and few restaurants if you want to go off site. The front desk arranges many of the day trips. We are planning on a return visit sometime next January or February.

Lovely beach, great food, friendly peoplePosted Mar 23, 2014
Pros: The staff--especially Jose, the manager--was extremely accommodating. The facilities were beautiful and clean at all times.
Cons: Personally, I would appreciate an option of brighter lighting inside the cottages. Searching through a dark suitcase was sometimes difficult.
Location: The staff is willing to reserve spots on local tours of ruins, caves, and jungle as well as fishing & snorkeling. They are good but not cheap.
Singing Sands Inn is like a luxurious camp with lovely cottages and a gorgeous central restaurant. There aren't too many cottages for guests who appreciate a relaxing, more intimate experience. The close proximity and open design was like spending time with friends. Each cottage has a thatched roof and heavy dark wood blinds. Screening prevents unwanted critters from entering. The bed we had was comfortable, especially with the ceiling fan and a floor fan to bring in the gentle ocean breezes. A/C is extra. We didn't need it. The entire resort is beautifully maintained. It is not within easy walking distance of town, however, so guests must avail themselves of prompt taxis, rental cars or golf carts, or the free bicycles if they wish to shop. The restaurant on the premises is excellent, but anyone who wants more choices could walk to another resort. The single road that stripes the peninsula cannot be far from any resort, including this one, but the traffic quiets at night. The beach in front of the resort is handy to an island that offers excellent snorkeling, and kayaks can be rented if guests wish to paddle to the island.

Great beach hotel, with excellent restaurant.Posted Mar 2, 2014
Singing Sands is a great hotel, with a touch of Korean culture also (try the spicy pork). It is right on the beach, has a swimming pool to wash the salt out, and has an outstanding restaurant. It is a bit isolated from other facilities, such as restaurants in Placencia, unless you have a car - but then there is not a lot of reason to go to them with the quality on hand.
