The Sands enjoys one of the most sought-after beachfront settings in Barbados and is also near the well renowned St. Lawrence Gap area in Christ Church.

Please note that this hotel is not fully-opened yet and only the West Wing block of the hotel (nearest the beach) is open. There will be continuing work on other parts of the property, but not major construction work. This may also impact some of the facilities. This is reflected in the special opening offers. It is hoped that the hotel will be fully functioning by December 2019.
