We picked the Sun & Sand for a weekend stay because it was close to the city as well as right on the beach.
They had a promotional rate for the weekend.
It is one of the oldest 5 star properties in Mumbai and the architechture shows. The small elevator and arrival lounge are testimony to the age of the hotel.
However the rooms are well furnished and large. We chose a sea facing room and would advise all to do the same. The garden facing rooms face the arrival driveway and parking lot and the view is just not worth it.
The buffet breakfast is sumptious and the variety is great.
They also serve a discounted midnight buffet which is a good deal.
The business lounge serves free drinks during Happy Hours. This is a bit claustrophobic and the drinks are rountine and do not include cocktails. The only starters served during drinks are peanuts which is a bit thrifty considering the class of the hotel.
The best place in the hotel is obviously the pool and attached jacuzzi. You can surely hope for a swim with one of the film stars of Bollywood. Most of them flock to the hotel during the weekends for a quiet swim.
Airport pickup and drop are efficient.
