Expectations Exceeded
Hotel service and facilities were excellent. Poolside was peaceful, attractive and comfortable. Room was not large but well designed and there was very little noise from the neighboring rooms. The small terrace was pleasant and offered nice seclusion. The hotel restaurant offered an interesting menu, albeit the prices were on the expensive side. That said, the total offering represented good value and we will return.

Lovely time at Sands! Will come back often.
Loved our stay! What a wonderful long weekend we had at Sands! we were a group of family and friends and had a wonderful time around the pool! The hotel is SO LOVELY. the design is amazingly lush and photogenic. The pool is spacious and everyone seemed to have a place to sit, it was never too crowded! the 46 room hotel is a perfect balance, not too large not too small. The staff at the pool were fantastic! wonderful friendly service by our waiters: Sal and Paige and the pool crew led by Julian who was super accommodating for anything we asked about/for. The drinks around the pool were AMAZING. I recommend the Cabana-Colada. I have two points of improvements: 1 - Pool should be cleaned more often throughout the day, it did sometimes have a lot of bugs and leaves in it and I needed to ask someone to clean. 2 - Food at the restaurants is only OKAY and is extremely overpriced! we made sure to go out for dinner because they serve 40$ dishes that are really bland. 3 - The area is lacking easy delicious dining! any good restaurant requires a few weeks ahead reservations - and food options were terrible otherwise. make sure you make a reservation in advance for dinner!

Fantastic pool area. Room was cozy. Back patio was a great place to chill in privacy, although it was connected to the parking lot but that didn’t bother us. The bed was veryyyyy comfy. Great sleep. Only complaint was we could hear every step from the room above us. Oh well not a big deal. We loved the stay and would recommend

Went on a girls trip and we loved this boutique hotel. Pool was amazing and our room Decor was on point. I already booked my next trip in July.

Lovely hotel
Really nice property and relaxing setting. The food is really amazing as well as the signature cocktails. Pool was comfortable and not too crowded. The only negative things would be they don’t have an ice machine, the fridge in the room didn’t work well. Wish there was more seating around the restaurant or fire pits. We didn’t get to enjoy as it was always full and no open reservations.

Hidden gem in Palm Springs
This is a very special place: Moroccan style with 50s Americana pictures here and there, and great coffee table books in the rooms. The restaurant is beautiful and packed with yummy options and drinks, with a nice pool scene. What a hidden gem of a hotel!

Meh hotel
I swear every guest was on drugs. It was really weird. It was a nice hotel and a great pool, but the experience was not great.

Beautiful rooms! We of course couldn’t really enjoy the amenities but that’s not their fault with lockdown. Great experience.
