Sun-n-Sand Hotel, Shirdi
Ranked #8 of 81 Hotels in Shirdi
Reviewed 8 October 2008

We just returned from this hotel, defiantly not a 5 star hotel as the web site claims. We confronted the manager about it and he became very upset. Maybe a 2-3 star, but one of the better hotels in the area. .

Reviewed 19 February 2008

We went to shirdi to visit the Saibaba temple & chose to stay at the Sun-n-Sand based on its 5 star reputation in Bombay. Well, that was a mistake. This place is barely a 2 star by international standards. Further, the service is very poor.
- the hotel offers a free ride to the temple except our driver kept us wating for 40 minutes on our return (at night & we had a young child with us)
- the food is very expensive by rural India standards & the quality is very mediocre. It also showed up almost 1 hour late.
- We had these guys arrange to pick us up and drop us back in Mumbai. Big mistake. The agency they chose basically sucked. The driver who took us in was sick (tummy flu, very nice) & showed up an hour late to pick us up. The driver who took us back told us that he was asked to return the same day! The poor guy had to make a round trip of around 12 - 13 hours in pretty dangerous road conditions. They treat their drivers badly and provide them with no training. The drivers didn't know Mumbai, got lost & on our return, got held up by the cops near Flora Fountain for trying to use the wrong lane. We had to wait in heavy traffic with a young child in the car for nearly 45 minutes while the poor driver dealt with the cops. When we chatted with the driver, he told us that he'd been misled to believe that we needed to be dropped off at the airport in Mumbai, not that we had to enter the real city.

All in all, avoid this place unless you have to go to Shirdi and there's no other choice.
