Great for families!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 9, 2021via mobile
Great family resort. Clean and the staff are so friendly. They really do make you feel welcome. The pool is well maintained. Close to the beach and very quiet. The kids playground needs updating, but other than that, wouldn’t change a thing. There is a large field between units that is great for kids to play on. 24/7 laundry which is handy. Close to town and activities like mini golf. Say hi to the resident cat Pookie!

Kids loved the pool, we all loved the convenience of being steps from the beach. Close to good restaurants and amenities. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, clean kitchen, spacious rooms, lots of supplies. We’ll be back!

Very well maintained property. Nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, has everything you could need.
Service was excellent, management and staff friendly and professional.
It is quiet, relaxing, close to great hiking and biking trails and Rathtrevor Park. Shopping and restaurants near by.

Our family has stayed several times at Ocean Sands. It maintains a nice, easy going, summer vacation vibe. The location is great, the rooms are super clean - if maybe just a little bit dated - and the staff are super friendly and helpful.

This was our third visit and we look forward to our next. We stayed in a two bedroom condo with a view of the beach - what a thrill to wake up to that every day! Great beach access. Nice warm pool. Very clean and well appointed condos. Darcy and Christie are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating.
