Great place

Posted Apr 5, 2017
If you looking for great people and boat watching, delicious waterside dining with reasonable prices, Tiki Bar, live music, short walk to ocean with scenic people friendly park this is the place for you. Our room could use updating but it was fine. We had the king room with kitchenette. It had a great balcony to enjoy views of Intercoastal, marine activity and ocean. It was the perfect retreat for in between activities. The staff was awesome. We will return there but we will stay longer. We would have liked the time to enjoy a snorkling/diving/glass bottom boat tour or to tour the area with the great bus system that goes up and down A1A and more.

Pleasant hotel close to restaurants and beach.

Posted Apr 1, 2017
This hotel is fairly dated and a bit tired but the room was very clean. Breakfast very basic but adequate, disappointed that bedding wasn't changed during my four day stay and that coffee making packs ceased after my first day. Convenient for the beach and local restaurants and right by the water.

Great views at a lovely hotel

Posted Mar 27, 2017
Pros: The room was immaculate and always kept clean! I loved the balcony and the closeness to other restaurants, shopping places, and the roads,
Cons: The parking is a bit limited- I did not have a problem since there was always a person on duty that could help me find a spot.
Location: Great restaurants in the area! Close to the main highways, Near a Catholic church, too. Great area to walk. Near the library!
The Sands was immaculate and just a wonderful place to stay! I had a room on the seventh floor and never had a problem getting the elevator. The view was magnificent and the balcony a great place to watch the boats on the inter coastal, see the pool area, or just sit in the sun.

Nice Hotel Close to Dive Shop

Posted Mar 20, 2017
Pros: Proximity to dive shop and boats.
Cons: Updating/renovating eventually, nothing pressing.
Location: Dive shop(s), beach is walking distance, great restaurants within walking/short driving distance.
Our dive shop is located in the lobby of the hotel and the dock is right outside so it was a no brainer booking this hotel. We weren't disappointed it was a nice hotel and the staff was very friendly. The hotel itself is a little outdated but we aren't fancy people and it was exactly what we needed. We will definitely be staying here again!

Sands Review

Posted Mar 19, 2017
Hotel room was outdated and beds were terrible. But the service and location were great. We really enjoyed the Patio Restraunt and bar but were upset there were no beach chairs to lounge on while swimming. Overall, nice hotel and stay.
