"UAE American Expats Vacay at Sultan Sands Resort"
The resort is small and private. It is a good safe place to also bring families. The staff and the managers are 100. The service and the food was outstanding. My husband and I have recommended this resort to other people in the UAE. This really should be a 5 star hotel. We have no complaints about anything. This was the best vacay we have taken together. We are going back soon. Guess should respect the workers more.
"Beautiful setting with very hard working staff"
My wife and I visited Sultan Sands for 5 nights following a one week safari in Tanzania last week - which was brilliant (the safari that is)... We went half-board so had to pay for lunch and drinks. It seemed better value at the time of booking as we donâ€™t drink or eat a great deal and unless you get hammered every night I think it was cheaper overall â€“ though drinks WERE expensive. A glass of white wine and a 330ml bottle of beer cost 9,000 Tanzanian Shillings each â€“ around Â£3.50. So around Â£7 pounds a pint and Â£30 a bottle of wine if you go half board. We had booked this way, as we thought weâ€™d try some of the local restaurants, but seeing as there arenâ€™t any within a few miles, maybe booking All Inclusive would be the best option â€“ you have to pay for bottles water too in the restaurant which is fair enough. (A big bottle of water is provided free for teeth cleaning in your room every day though). On our last day we walked down the beach for about a mile or so â€“ to the right â€“ and were left pretty much alone by the beach boys with their various bit and pieces. Along the way we saw a couple of souvenir shops and a supermarket of sorts â€“ so if you DO need something , you could always chance going down there â€“ at no time did we feel pressurised by anyone. Anyway, this is a really nice hotel with a nice big swimming pool, though as per usual if you don't plonk your towels down on the sunbeds first thing in the morning, somebody else gets there first. The majority of the clientele were German so I think I'll leave that there... We were in Room 371 which was a steady climb up a hill which had a really steep bit near the end, so we got plenty of exercise getting to and from there. If you are older and greyer than us (we're in out 60's), I'd ask for another room closer to reception - though it was very quiet which was great. We had a nice view of a bush and the lodge opposite, but it was fine... The room we stayed in was VERY comfortable with a lovely big bed and lots of lights compared to some of the other places we stayed in on our tour. On our last night we tried the TV for the first time and it had loads of decent English films and programs so top marks there. The shower was great, but getting the shower door to shut properly took 2 of us each time, so the floor flooded most mornings anyway. Staff were VERY friendly. The food was good - lots of choice every night and morning, though it was generally luke warm as people tended to leave the hot buffet containers open. The hotel had theme nights for the food, but everything seemed to be pretty similar at the end of the day - fish, pork, chicken, beef and lots of veggies and regular barbecues throughout the 5 nights. People just helped themselves. It was very good really. Entertainment was good. They usually played / entertained around the pool from 8:30 to 9:30 and you could always get a table in a good position. There WERE a lot of mosquitoes at night, but as long as you used the right sprays you didnâ€™t get bitten. There is a lovely pool with a shallow end and a deep end for swimmers - over 6 feet - which was very rarely used. The beach is great for walking. There is a reef about half a mile away out at sea and you could attempt to walk to that at low tide - though you need footwear because of the sea urchins which DO sting... The water is absolutely clear so you can see where you are walking. We got a few hundred yards out and saw a lot of starfish and the odd trapped tropical fish as there are various bits where the water comes up to your knees. When the tide comes in it's great for swimming for a while - much warmer than the pool! In the afternoon there is an indoor area next to the pool where you can get coffee and tea and biscuits and cake and cool down after the sun. That was free to all, so was great for us. The Bluebay next door has a little sandwich shop by their pool which does lovely baguettes / paninis for a reasonable price so go there if you want something a bit different at lunchtime. US dollars are accepted everywhere, though using Tanzanian Shillings is probably better value if you can get small enough denominations. The guide books we read say that tipping isnâ€™t expected â€“ and it isnâ€™t, though is greatly appreciated! If you want to go snorkelling or diving there is a place on-site between the Sultan Sands and the Bluebay called One Ocean Dive. For $45 each we took a trip which had 2 X 45 minute swims. I can hardly get across a pool as I'm a teriible swimmer and when we asked about the trip we were told that the depth is between 5 to 6 foot in a lagoon so we thought weâ€™d have a go as Iâ€™d never done it before. So you can imagine our surprise when we stopped at sea about a quarter of a mile from a lagoon in about 20 feet of waterâ€¦ They did offer us life jackets which we used and it was terrific â€“ once I got the hang of breathing through the snorkel that is. The guys on the boat / diving helpers were great. Iâ€™d recommend it to everyone. Trips from the hotel are really expensive â€“ about $90 per person for 2 of you to visit Stone Town for half a day. But we went with another couple and included a trip to a Spice Farm as well, so the trip took around 7 hours total. As there were 4 of us the bill was $55 per person. So almost half price and we took in 2 trips at the same time. That was another good day out. It was a lovely end to our holiday. Only given it 4 stars as service was a bit hit and miss at times, but I would recommend going here especially this time of year as the weather was wonderful.
"A little piece of paradise"
I arrived late due to a delayed flight and was able to get a table at the buffet thanks to Maria understanding I hadn't eaten. The next morning being new to the hotel Addy helped me through the minefield that was the breakfast buffet - so much choice! You have access to sun beds by the pool or on a raised beach area overlooking the sea with a beach towel provided by the hotel. The beach when it's there, as generally the tide is out during the morning and comes back in by around 2pm with a fairly strong swell and a brisk breeze. You can walk out to the reef and will no doubt be approached by hawkers selling boat trips to paintings. Generally the staff are friendly but this hotel does cater for mainly Germans & Dutch guests so I found myself as a lonely British tourist except for the last day. The bedrooms are adequate and well furnished with a small patio. Finally you do have access to the BlueBay next door which caters slightly more for families.
I wish I liked this property more, Mark, the manager seems like a very nice guy who is committed to improving the hotel so here is our review. Pros: right on the beach, smaller (compared to blue bay), quiet property), good buffet options that changes each day. Cons: Power outages (happened three times while we're there, didn't last long thank goodness), waaaaay to many mosquitos in the humidity. NO internet access in rooms (which means sitting outside using wifi and getting more mosquito bites). Staff English is limited. Bottom line: a great potential with a couple of tweaks to be a great place. But unless the pests are better controlled we probably won't be back.
"Awful customer service"
On the day of my departure, I managed to forget my phone at the reception. I discovered this mistake as soon as I got to the airport, and tried to call the hotel. No answer, even though I tried several times. I then sent an email, and waited patiently for someone to at least give me some response indicating whether they had found my phone or not. I even contacted them through their "contact us"-site online. No answer there either (and it's been almost two months so pretty sure I'm not gonna be getting one either) I understand that my phone may not have been found, but you do expect an answer! I will never book this hotel or any hotel in this chain again. PS: if you're a scandinavian, even more reason not to book this place as you will basically only hear scandinavian
