“Post-wedding Family Reunion!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

What a lovely place -- rooms are small but clean and located minutes from South Haven town center -- a cute town, great beaches and low-key, very pleasant restaurants and shops! The Sun and Sand resort is rustic but has lovely touches such as overflowing flower baskets on the wraparound porches of the Beach House, a great salt-water pool and sandy play area for the little ones. Each night my sisters and Mom and I sat outside chilling with a glass of wine enjoying conversations, looking at the small pond and listening to the waterfall fountain. There's a quaint and quiet feel to the place and nice conversations to be had at poolside with other guests. What a find and a good deal for the price! Swimming in Lake Michigan is a real treat! Will return for more.

Room Tip: I can vouch for the Beach House and the building right behind! Nice rooms, baths and a small fridge...

This place is amazing, my sister and I stayed there for two nights and didn't want to leave. The front desk ladies were so nice and helpful. The rooms were neat and clean. The area was simply beautiful with the waterfall and huge sand box for kids. The salt water pool was even better to top things off. I will definitely return. It's my new place to stay when I go up to South Haven.

The hotel has been recently renovated - everything is clean and fresh. The pool was amazing. Good location as well - close to South Haven and Saugatuk . The room was small but comfortable. The AC is a window unit. Pleanty of parking which is a plus. The hotel has a resort-like feel with bbq grills, patios, pond, sand lot for the kids to play in, etc The staff was nice too. We stayed in the Lake House where each room has it's own sliding glass door onto a deck with lawn chairs. Mattress was quite saggy but I would stay there again!

Room Tip: The room had an older sagging mattress...I'd ask for one with a newer one.

If you want to spend some time in South Haven, this is a good choice and it's coming from a business traveler who's a bit of a hotel snob since I stay in 4-5 star hotels on an expense account. Now I'm not saying this is even close to a 4-5 star hotel but it's not bad. The rooms are small but for a weekend, who cares, you're at the beach all day anyways... Very nice staff who do need to become more familiar with the area. They have a very nice very clean pool that at 4:00 has a bar :-) and prove plenty of towels and noodles. They have 2 fire pits and provide everything you need, even the lighter and all sizes of wood to make a fire for smores etc... They have plenty of chairs to sit around on; including picnic tables and 2 BBQ charcoal grills too. They have a large area for kids to play in the sand and a cute little duck pond with a waterfall.
They are a mile from North Beach and 3 miles from South beach (I prefer South Beach). This is just a cute little place and I recommend it - have fun!

The Sun 'N Sand was a very cute hotel, and not at all a bad place to stay. The pool is great, staff helpful. Rooms are very small, but serviceable - just don't expect lots of amenities. Room air conditioner right at head of one bed in double room.
About 3 miles drive to beach access. Walking distance to one restaurant, coffee and muffins/doughnuts in hotel lobby/check in area each morning.

Room Tip: If traveling with family, get suite in beach house, if available. If not, double did have two queen...

We are currently staying at a cottage room (1 br) at Sun and Sand resort and are very pleased! The rooms, although small, are a great price and are very clean. The beds are fluffy and amazing, I did not want to get up this morning! I loved that there is a small fridge and coffee maker in the room. The grounds are cute and very well looked after. The saltwater pool is fantastic and clean- the pool was the predominant reason we chose to stay here and we are happy we did! Also, the management is great- we did not get in until late last night but it was no problem, I simply called to get the room number and code and all was well. Would definitely stay again and recommend to our friends!
