This was a well located hotel with friendly staff and great views. It was fairly simple but did exactly what it said which was to provide us with a base to explore the area. We did find some of the hotel support a little lacking as we asked them to book a taxi and I think perhaps someones friend came instead, an elderly car with no seatbelts and a cracked windscreen. However we did find out later from one of the restaurants that driving at night in that area is safe so perhaps we didn't need the taxi. We also send our items to the laundry which came back un-ironed. Not helpful when you are travelling and have no way of ironing your own items, when we queried this we were told we should have specified we wanted things ironed. There was nowhere on the laundry slip that stated this so we ended up having to have them redone later on at further expense. But overall this was a great place to stay, easy to get to local things and great local food. We loved the lighthouse and the restaurant there and the harbour with the fishing boats and local fresh caught fish was brilliant.

The Sands - best place to stay!

What a beautiful place we have stayed on our family holiday! We received a warm friendly welcome even with welcoming drinks! the rooms were beautiful and the view was awesome! We came from Baviaanskloof and our vehicles were all full of dust and mud. The Sands gardener washed our vehicles which were inlcuded in our price! Whow that was a first for us! I really would recommend The Sands to everyone!

Wow, exceptional place to stay

What a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful rooms with direct sea/beach acces and phenomenal views. Most friendly staff and great service. Breakfast as well as dinner are of exceptions quality. The dining room has spectacular views. Private parking is available.
Nice hikes can be made just by leaving the garden. Top place

The Sands Hotel

Everything was perfect ! The staff are so friendly and so professional. They made everything so perfect for my partner and myself. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. The food is phenomenal and the view is absolutely stunning. Everything is organized so well and it was just such a lovely experience.

5* everything, all the way!!

Despite travelling a lot I have never actually written a review on here but my stay at the Sands has left me compelled to do so.

Our room was one of the best / most characteristic I have stayed in with a lovely jacuzzi bath and and outdoor jacuzzi also overlooking the bay. Panoramic views of the beautiful ocean with their floor to ceiling windows was a wonder to wake up to in the mornings (spot the seals playing in the waves) :)

The hosts couldn’t have been more helpful, they really went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. Sascha even offered to take us into town for a restaurant meal we had booked despite also having to work in the restaurant shortly after! He also got up for us and waved us off the property very early doors when we left for an early flight and was up making us a packed breakfast.

It was the extra little touches that also made the difference and this stay a memorable one such as the sweet little hand written notes left every evening on our bed after turn down service.
This really was a more than memorable stay, we had been doing the garden route from Cape Town and had the pleasure of staying in some wonderful boutique hotels along the way but this was stand-out for us - couldn’t recommend highly enough. We shall return!
