A beautiful resort with a very helpful staff. It was quiet but just right for winter. The room and everything was great.
It was lovely. it was a very quiet time of year and I really enjoyed myself.
Great place to stay. The studio's hot water tank was in the suite next door so when they had a problem and turned off the hot water we were surprised to say the least. (A head's up would have been great) The t.v. was not intuitive and took a bit of working at to get a clear picture. Thankfully we had books and enjoyed getting lots of reading done. The setting was wonderful and very relaxing.
Being right on the beach.
The smoke alarm did not work.
Other than that our stay was wonderful.
Peace and quiet and everything you would ever want in a furnished suite, including a wonderful view of the water, deer enjoying their morning and evening wander and a cute bunny that appeared almost daily.
Proximity to beach and the views were spectacular.
Make sure that any future Groupons state that studio suites have no kitchen or cooking facilities attached inside them - The studio suite just has a bed and bath.
The property was spacious and safe for children. Awesome management who answered every question and supplied everything we needed. I will certainly return to Ocean Sands with my family.
