Hotel's Favourite
Clean as a whistle! Wonderful breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon waffles, fresh fruit and so many other things. Close to the action and then return to the quiet! The cookies were a nice touch Wide open private beach directly across the road. Would stay here again anytime. Much better than a big box hotel!

Silese was amazing when we stayed here. The pool is salt water and heated. The atmosphere is amazing: the beach is private and love not having a crowd. Super awesome. The convenience to town and downtown St Augustine is nice being less than 20 minutes away depending on traffic.

Great rooms small hotel right on the beach heated pool to 4 AM. Amenities in the room were awesome more than I expected personal experience with the staff was amazing. All were met. Lovely breakfast bar in the morning with many options whether you like a light breakfast or you would like scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, or waffles. They had fresh fruit available as well and coffee service with Starbucks and they had all the bells and whistles with that. At 5 PM, they served fresh popcorn and chocolate chip cookies, which was nice. The rooms were very clean and updated. They had balcony seating on most of the rooms where you have a nice cigar at the end of the day . The manager whose name was DJ was very accommodating and very helpful through the booking and the check-in process.. me and my husband will return to this hotel every time we come to Saint Augustine because it’s away from the city a little bit so it’s quiet but you can go into town which is like five or six minutes away for some nightlife fun or some daytime shopping

ABOVE AND BEYOND: The service was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING: After spending a great night with popcorn and Chocolate Chip Cookies we checked out after a superb breakfast. After arriving home I discovered that I had left a small, but important suitcase at the Ocean Sands Beach Boutique Inn. I immediately called and spoke with the "on-duty" manager who had the bag "in-hand". The next morning I called the manager and he said he would take my bag to UPS himself later that day. I gave UPS my credit card AND as promised the bag arrived at my home. This is the kind of service that I thought was in the past. BUT NO THIS WAS JUST THIS WEEK. Ocean Sands made it right and I am forever impressed. I give 5 STARS to the service of the ENTIRE staff. THANK YOU
