We enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Sands Resort! The location was ideal, the bed was comfortable and the staff was pleasant and informative. The restaurant was closed for the winter season but there were plenty of restaurants in the area.

Very disappointed with facility. Read previous reviews and decided to stay for my anniversary because reviews were overall good. Very old building. Not well maintained. Smelled like mildew. Air vents were loaded with dust to the point clumps of dust blew out when the air...More
