I shared a room with my friend and her son, who’s 10. Let me start with the positives:
- the beach view is amazing. The beach is easily accessible and the view from the balcony was so calming and peaceful
- the property is right in the middle of everything and everywhere
- parking on-site is free

Now, why I have to give it two stars:
- the front lobby staff barely acknowledged us when we came in or left
- the property is old and poorly maintained. There are cracks and stains all over the property
- the 1 br is not big enough for more that 2 people. While it supposed to sleep 4, once the pullout couch is out, the room is extremely tight
- the room wasn’t that clean when we arrived. The tub and toilet were old and stained. I wouldn’t dare take a bath in the tub! The broom and dustpan were left haphazardly in the room, the floors were clearly not mopped and the counter tops needed wiping. I felt pretty uneasy with the lack of cleanliness in the room. We called to complain and requested a room change/upgrade, but none were available
- the pool area was also not clean and ultimately, a sign was put up to indicate that it was under maintenance. I was there for 5 days and never got to use the pool/sauna, both of which were supposed to be open according to the website
- while there are multiple laundry rooms on the property, there was only one working washer and dryer on the whole property - all the others were out of service
- the walls are paper thin and we could hear everything going on in the room next to us, including the sex the couple was having
- massages are advertised but there isn’t such a service on the premises
- we had to get our own dolly and bring up our own bags

As a timeshare owner, I booked this stay with RCI and would never come back here. It’s below timeshare standards and I really don’t know how anyone could be an owner at such a poorly maintained property.

The Good: The View! Proximity to beach! Location! All are stellar. Clean. Free onsite parking. Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. We liked that reservations were required for the pool (1/family for 30 minutes) because it's like having a private pool
The Bad: The one bedroom unit is very small and may be adequate for two people but when the sofa bed is folded up it butts up against the table leaving little room to get from the bedroom to the bathroom. The towels are soft and fluffy but there is not enough room to hang them all, much less wet bathing suits and beach towels. The bathroom could use more towel racks and hooks. The walls are thin and the air conditioner loud. Water pressure and temperature fluxuates in the shower. There is no washer/dryer in the unit and there was only 1 washer and dryer (free) available for the entire complex.
So why do we recommend this resort? The View! The Beach!

The staff was courteous and helpful. The unit needs an upgrade as there were unpainted poorly done patches in the bathroom wall. The view and location were outstanding. The beach was groomed daily and there was easy access. Parking was onsite and free.

I have been vacationing at the Ocean Sands for over a decade. The amenities are wonderful. Indoor restaurant, heated pool/hot tub, full kitchen and jacuzzi in shower, ice cream shop around the back, free laundry on site. I must say I was even more impressed this year. I utilized a local grocery outlet and pre-ordered groceries online. Our arrival was late (the food arrived 1 1/2 hours before us), but Quinn graciously unpacked all of the refrigerated/freezer items for my family before we got there. Sweet !!! I must also commend the services of Carter, Katie, Raul, Carly, Candy, Milagros, Charles and Joyce. You are all outstanding !!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for all the extra measures, to keeping us Covid safe as well. See you next year !

Room tip: Ask the staff to give you their opinions... but, floors 3 and up probably have less beach activity noise.

Very convenient to the beach. Can walk everywhere. Great food. Ask where the locals go. Great beach bar at the resort called Johnny Mananas. Ordered lunch and took it to the beach Very convenient. To go drinks also. Lot of activities in the area and on the beach. Saw the dolphins frequently. All rooms face the ocean so loved hanging out on the balcony when in the room.
