Went to Shirdi with family to visit Sai Baba temple.
Expected a lot from the hotel as the name SUN and SAND raises one's expectations.
Lobby: not up to the mark. Ok.
Arrival: Did not feel very welcome there as had to wait for a long time to get our luggage offloaded.
Check-in: Was smooth. no problem at all. Rooms were given as per our request.
Rooms: Rooms were ok. Complimentary mineral water and tea maker with tea bags in the room.
Breakfast: the spread is ok and the F&B manager very attentive. The best part of Dosa and Utappam live counter. It was a real treat to have hot dosas and utappam.
Sai Baba temple is very near by.
During our stay, some construction was was on in the main building. Upon request, we were shifted to a nearby building, which is like a serviced apartment. The serviced apartments are good will big living room and bed room. Much better than the normal hotel rooms.
Room service too is available in these serviced apartments. The property belongs to Sun And Sand.
Security: was a major concern at this apartment as I could not see any security guy on the main gate.
