Enjoying our last night at Boracay Sands Hotel. Friendly staff, great service, clean rooms, buffet breakfast is delicious and of course really affordable room rates. We will schedule our next visit soon. Awesome Boracay vacation! Loved the water activities too.

Staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Breakfast was okay, although on our second day there were ants all over the buffet. For a 4 star hotel I didn't expected to have cockcroaches in the bathroom. When I told the staff they were immediately there to kill them. However, for a high class hotel I expected to hear... More

Sands Hotel in Boracay is in the beach front. It offers beach towels for a 200php deposit. The hotel has its own beach beds which guests can use for free from 6am to 5pm. A petite but clean pool is in the middle of the establushment with the sun casting its rays on it (through the open part of the... More

The staffs are great and friendly. I love the pool effects. I actually like everything. During our stay, I checked-in online for our flight, so I thought of printing our boarding pass ahead like i usually do, just in case there is no printing machine at the airport. Thats why I always carry a USB with me. It could have... More

I wanted to give them a 5/5 but I realized and just remembered some annoying events. 1. The cable sometimes not working. There was a time I was waiting to have it fixed but I fall asleep. 2. I was a little shocked when there was a brownout, and the generator was too late to catch up. It took them... More

Located on Station 3, this hotel provided us an excellent service. A bit new but the staffs are very well accomodating and they know what they do. Nice, clean and large room for a cheap price compared to others. Only few rooms and around 3-5 story hotel, that's why they can attend and serve their customers perfectly. And what we... More

I visited the Sands hotel as part of a graduation trip for my university, so we had a group of 18. The staff greeted us kindly with drinks and were especially tending to our needs. During my stay at the Sands Hotel, I would say that the hotel has a nice swimming pool indoors, with tables near. I could easily... More

I didn't stay in this hotel but have frequented their spa. I would highly recommend this. The Spa is located in the basement so you are away from the hustle and bustle along the beach. The massage area is separated by curtains. It's dark downstairs with dimmed lighting to allow relaxation. The therapist are professional and great! After the massage,... More

We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. The restaurant (only breakfast) had good foods and the staff were all amazing. The improvement area is the location(I know it could not be). It's a bit too far away to the S2. The spa was great, but I got a cold. The rooms was great and clean.

This hotel is in a great location (as almost all hotels in Boracay are) and it is clean but that's about all it has going for it. The staff are rude and have zero care about customer service.
