Just back from celebrating our anniversary @ the Ocean Sands Hotel. It's great to see this hotel getting such good reviews on Tripadvisor because they work hard to deserve it. This time we noticed they have a new Beauty suite- The Topaz suite-located on the 1st floor where I duly got a lovely file & polish for €10. Very professionally done by Adeliene! There are specials every day (facials etc) but you need to book @reception. The food is good fare & your get a free glass of wine with your evening meal if you are not on a package deal. (Nice gesture in this economy :-) The reception staff are very nice & if u like a room from a previous stay, they try their best to get the room for u when booking. We love the sea view rooms on the 1st floor. The dining area in the conservatory has stunning views over the Atlantic so book a table there if you enjoy eating fine food with spectacular views. The waitresses are all very friendly & always tend to your needs in an efficient easy manner. The head waitress(dark haired efficient girl) has a lovely smile but we don’t see it often enough..Whoever picks the staff picks well.
There are self catering apartments which also have great views & there were lots of young families around when we stayed there. The hotel is very popular with families with young children & hosts everything from weddings to christenings. The bar staff (hello to Chris) are great & combined with the regular entertainment makes for a great night’s crac.
The hotel itself offers access from the back to the beautiful blue flag beach in Enniscrone. This area is awash with families walking, going to the beach or indeed to the ever popular playground which has for years kept our children amused. There is also a very good surf school (7th Wave) on the beach & we had great fun trying to surf!
All in all great hotel making an effort to attract business when monies are scarce but people still need a relaxing break. Keep up the good work & hope to see u all again soon.
