My wife and I spent 10 very enjoyable days at the Sands, and we wished we could have stayed longer. We do not have one bad thing to say, everything about our stay was wonderful. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help with anything you need. We had a room on the 3rd floor,... More

The site is superb, with a view of the mountains and the Tamarin Bay. We had a de luxe ground floor suite. Very good room, and much better bathroom than Pirogue. As... More
