“Sands Resorts-Ocean Forest Villas A 203, Enjoyed it so much we are looking at buying there!”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

This is the second time we have stayed at Ocean Forest Villas through the Sands Resort. I have read so many bad reviews I just had to write one myself. I think people need to detail exactly where they stayed. The villas only have up to a third floor, and many of the bad reviews sound like they are from the hotel, not the villas, BIG difference!! We arrived early and they had our room ready. These are privately owned condos and ours was very nice just as the pics on the website shows. 2 bedrooms 2 baths, full kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. The room was clean and fresh towels were provided daily and the beds were made. Extra Blankets in the closet and plenty of dishes and cooking utensils in the kitchen. The ocean is just a short walk across Ocean Blvd and they have 2 pools to use also. The one pool seemed to have a problem with the filter and was not as clean as I would've liked. This was my only real issue with our stay. We did go to the other pool which was recently updated and it was better. They also have 2 large hot tubs for relaxing. The area is perfect, not too crowded at the pool or on the beach. Many of the other areas that are actual "hotels" are extremely crowded. We opted for the breakfasts for an additional fee, 2 kids eat free with purchase of adults.This was about a mile and a half away from the villas. It is not anything extravagant but was well worth it for the cost. It was a buffet with an option to order omelets and bagels etc. We didn't do the free waterpark this time as it is pretty small and geared toward young children. (We did go on our last vacation) Beds were comfy and clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. This is a great family place to stay. Really enjoyed it and we are looking at purchasing one of these condos. My advice would be to stay at the Ocean Forest Villas, not the hotel!! Sounds like there is a big difference between the two!

Room Tip: Stay at the Ocean Forest Villas, a 3rd floor room is quieter if you don't mind steps.

Stayed 6 days,only because we paid in advance. The room was terribly dated,filthy,and nothing worked properly. The maid came in and threw towels on the table and that was all she did. I asked her to make the bed and was told that they only do that if they want to. I told her that it was made the first day and she said that the other girl must have wanted do it. No one touched the room again until I asked them to PLEASE cleane the tub. She sprayed cleaner in it and that was all she did. Our anniversary has been ruined. Do Not Waste Your Money.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel !

The resort itself could use a some sprucing up, when we first arrived one of the elevators was down and it took us about 30 minutes to finally get everything to our condo. It was fixed the next day. The smell from the garbage compacter was disgusting. There was also several palmetto bugs (aka roaches) around the outside areas. The worst of it though was the drains in the bathrooms, you couldn't even take a shower without getting ankle deep water. The condo itself was extremely nice and very well maintained...kudos to the owners of 926. As far as CONDOLUX rentals went, the rates they gave were very good but don't expect any help with unforeseen issues. Our car had to go into the shop on the day of departure and they had no sympathy to help us with the delay getting out & the keys back. They told us to take a bus back to drop off our keys (with 2 kids and all our lugguage). I only asked to stay an extra to get our car back. Other than that the location is great, the staff at Sands is friendly and the pool is awesome.

Sands Beach Club is a building of privately owned condo and timeshare units. The condition of the condo you book is a reflection of the owners. They range from very good to not so good. We have stayed in units 228 and 115 over the years and found them to above average, and we have had few problems. However, if there are issues, they should be relayed to rental company so they can be addressed. This build is also confusing in that there are several companies managing the rental units. We used Smith Rentals. The on site company at least for the summer is Island Resorts, but they will not help anyone that they do not directly rent to. There is also a TimeShare office on the first floor, that can answer questions, but they only deal with timeshares. All that said, the property is at the end of the road, has a great location right on the beach, is close to Ocean Annies Beach Bar, has tennis courts, exercise room, basketball, and swiming pools inside and outside. If you get a good condo, I think you will enjoy the place. At least we have over the years, including summer of 2012.

We arrived late and had no linens for the pull out couch...called about this and the staff said sorry we can't help you tonight. The condo looked like or was decorated in the 80s and had not been touched since. There was a dirty stained pair of men's underwear in the corner of the master bedroom. The microwave and the coffee maker did not work. We asked to be moved to the sands resort for the remainder of the stay and were moved, but had to waste an entire day of vacation moving our stuff. Don't waste your money, there are many other nice places in myrtle beach to stay.

This place was a huge part of my childhood and is one of my favorite places. Every year since I was born I have gone to this hotel with my extended family and spent the week in myrtle beach. The staff is very friendly the pool is awesome, it's right on the beach, the tennis courts are awesome and they are very relaxed. I will never forget going down with my aunt and uncle to play football on the beach at 11:45 at night.
