Verified Reviews of Sun & Sand

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Extremely dirty housekeeping. I will never stay there again."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I paid an average $150 per night, but should be more like $15 per night. In the room housekeeping bought toilet paper and empty garbage cans only did not clean nor do the beds. When I checked in shower it was full of sand and the balcony was full of cigarette butts. The toilet made noise in middle of night and the beds also squeaked which had metal bars hanging out of bed. There was no closet in the hallway and no parking space for my entire stay. I cant believe this hotel is still in business. It was my worst experience ever and I've been to many places.

"The worst hotel that I have ever booked in all my life."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The rooms were dirty, old, not taken care of, doors were in terrible shape, no coffee maker in the room as advertised, no sink in the bathroom, no place to put your soap or shampoo in the shower, floor tiles cracked and broken, no sliding door to the outside as advertised, the door to the balcony was rusted, old, paint peeling off and the door itself was patched/repaired. The shower curtain did not come low enough to stop the water from running out over the floor. The elevator stopped working. The door keys only worked one day and had to be reprogrammed. The Internet was not available in the room as advertised. The hair dryer did not work. There was no restaurant as advertised. No room service. The only good thing about this entire event was the night service desk person, Tony. He was so good and tried to help all he could. He has an impossible job. As a result of all of the above, "We will never come to Virginia Beach ever again!"

"Bob responded very promptly and the booking process went very well. They answered all our questions and offered the rooms we needed at the price they quoted. It was a very efficient way of finding a hotel for our group. You have been excellent to deal with. I have already referred your company to another teacher in our school. Thank you for being so helpful and following up on everything!!" G.W. - Cleveland, OH
