“A good hotel to stay....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

I have visited there in December,2012 for 2 nights and 3 days.The rooms are neat and clean and the staffs are very helpful.The foods are homely and the beach is in walking distance.I stayed there in an AC room and an LCD TV was there.The staffs were available in any time when I called them whether it was too night or dawn.All over it is a good and safe budget hotel in Sankarpur.

It's true that Sandy Bay is located near the beach,but the ambience was exactly opposite to what is shown in the pictures in the website.The rooms were poorly furnished,walls discoloured,spotted bedsheets,lamps were dusty,cable connection wasn't functional.Behavior of staff not pleasent at all,infact non-cooperating!!Food quality was not up to the mark .In a nutshell,the rooms,services were not worth the high amount of rate ,the hotel charges.So I would not like to recommend this hotel to the future tourists.Thank u.

I visited Shankarpur earlier this month on 17th August 12 and stayed at this hotel for the next 2 days (since no other room was available). This one is close to the beach hence I opted for this one ( although the actual beach for bathing is far away). The staff were rude, room was clean but service was poor.The amount charged for the room was way more than what it should be.The ac was so noisy that I could hardly sleep. The food was average but seafood like prawn should be avoided since both me and my partner fell sick after having lobster there. The Sea viewing room was promised to me while booking the room earlier but not honoured at the time of checking in. washroom wasn't clean had to request and wait for long to get it cleaned. will never recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: please make sure you get a sea facing room to have better value for money.

Hotel Sandy Bay is situated very close to the beach. You can walk down to beach from hotel at any time. Rooms are small but well maintained. Toilets are very spacious and clean. Staffs are very courteous and friendly. Main advantage of the hotel is the location and competitive tariff.

There are total 16 rooms in the hotel with In-House Restaurant and Bar. Fish/Chicken, if brought from outside, are cooked by hotel staff on request and on a nominal charge.

Power back up is available. During power cut, AC would not be available.

We got the best tariff while booked online at MakeMyTrip.com through TripAdvisor.in. In case you are booking it directly at MakeMyTrip.com you can get only the normal market price.

There's no direct communication to Shankarpur. When travelling by public transport you can get down at Ramnagar or Choddo (14) Mile and take a trekker or a local van which would take you directly to the hotel. It cost us Rs.5/- per person one way from Ramnagar to Hotel Sandy Bay. It is suggested to check with the locals on the current price, in case you are availing this mode of transport. Generally the drivers try to squeeze out some extra from the ignorant tourists.

Hotel Sandy Bay is the worst hotel in Shankarpur. 'Morning Shows the day'. The receptionist is a worst person I ever met. Rooms are not up to the mark. Food charges are very high. Room service is good. Attendance's are good. But the receptionist gentleman, I think he is the in charge of the hotel, he is a worst person.

Sandy bay is best in all categories Such as 1. location, 2. food quality, 3. behaviour of staff, 4. cleanliness, and more over 5. higenic. I stayed there with my family during first week of june 2012. It was a great experience to watching sea with pleasent room temperature. I may not be their biggest customer but their attitude make me feel like one.

Room Tip: First floor, front side, sea facing rooms are better than top floor.
