We stayed here for 10 days and enjoyed what the Sands had to offer. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown where things were in PD as this was our first time. Our apartment was comfortable with AC and ceiling fans, a comfortable bed and living area, foxtel incl.
The area itself is nice and close to 4 mile beach so it is an easy walk to get there. Beautiful beach!! The location from the main street is likely too far to walk, so without a car you have to take the shuttle bus into town. This is a great service however it is $4 one-way every time! You can buy 3-day or weekly passes which does save you money. The bus will pick you up from out the front if you hail it down.
We had breakfast incl. in our stay which was just toast and cereal w/ juice. Fair few kids stay here which is fine, but can be noisy at times also. Good pool and BBQ area provided which was never too busy.
The staff here are friendly and only too happy to help. We would have liked the 10pm curfew adhered to a bit more but otherwise we were happy with the Sands resort.
