We booked this condo on a last minute basis for a family of 5 and it was great. Full kitchen for cooking our own meals with a great view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Easy access off of the highway.

My family and I just love this place. We are repeat customers and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. The outdoor pool is the best, clean, heated and big enough to play. The staff are very helpful and accomendating. I love the big open grassy area where the kids can play. The grounds are kept very well and clean. It is by far our favorite place to go on the island for a get away.

Room Tip: We like the pool side rooms so the kids can play on the grass and we can still see them.

We have 15 family members to go stay in the Ocean Sand Resort this summer trip, i found it is very convient for us to go shopping & dinning, we got a upstairs & downstair unit, my nephew & family got the beach view unit, when we cooking dinner & BBQ, we will all come together to the unit 40 ground floor , with more space at the playground & facing the swimming pool. At the low tide time,we went dug lots of clams , very fun trip to stay with them, friendly staffs.

Room Tip: ground floor unit you can do your own BBQ with more space to use

My family has been coming to Ocean Sands for the past few years. It is the perfect resort for us. My two daughters & ourselves each get a unit. This allows us to meet for meals, have bonfires on the beach & in season sit by the pool. Then we can all go back to our own units to relax & sleep. Darcy & Kristie the onsite managers have always been extremely helpful & generous of their time to our family. My husband & I have also spent a week there on our own & had a great time. Got in lots of golf as there are many courses in the area. There are some great restaurants in town & there is never lacking in things to do. We have stayed in ocean front units & poolside units. All are wonderful.

Look no further. Ocean Sands has everything you could possibly need.

Room Tip: Look online for unit pictures. All are a little different.

A friend and I went for a relaxing break. It was everything we could ask for. Lovely walks on the beach. Close the provincial park for more walking and sightseeing . We did some day excursions to other parks and found some great restaurants. The spa on another resort is walking distance away and highly recommended. The accommodation is well laid out, lounge gas fire awesome addition and a kitchen that is well equipped. I would visit again.
