Great place for beach holiday
The hotel has everything needed for perfect beach stay. The rooms are located in small houses on the beach. Rooms are simple but well maintained and have everything needed. Beach is equipped with sun beds and umbrellas, there’s a swimming pool. Snoopy island with beautiful sea life is easily accessible if you can swim. Make sure to take your snorkel mask with you.

The rooms are very, very dated. Not worth the money. Facilities are kids friendly and can keep them well entertained. Restaurant food is strongly below average.

A relaxing weekend away from Dubai
We come here regularly, we love the atmosphere. You have everything you could want from a beach resort without the crowds, concrete blocks, industrial-scale catering and long carpeted corridors. The setting is amazing, you are always outside, the food is great (the choices are expanding but the original dishes are still on the menu). The new and renovated rooms are very comfortable and clean and even the older ones are clean, they are just a bit dated.

Sandy Beach Resort was a good place to stay. The bath towels were absolutely amazing, so plush. The views of Snoopy Island from the pool and beach were gorgeous. I liked that the rooms were designed for sand and I didn’t need to worry too much about getting it dirty. It was easy cleanup with the design. But this hotel has opportunities for growth. When my room was cleaned before I checked in, the bathroom trash was never emptied. On the second day, I was not given more toilet paper and water. The pool bar sold out of draft beer within a few hours of me arriving, and then I was told that they wouldn’t get any more in because Ramadan was starting in 2 days. Outside my door, there was a huge pile of trash/junk sitting by the rocks. It’s a big eyesore. Please do something to clean this trash pit up. It really takes away from the gorgeous views and atmosphere.

My favourite place in the UAE. Excellent snorkelling. Stunning views of Snoopy. Only downside is the lunch at the bar/cafe is ok but nothing special but the food available in the evenings is much better.

Great Adventure
It was great a lot of memories and flash back associated with this place it's an adventure. The Amazing views and the super clean water. Sandy beach is different from other competitors it doesn't feel too commercial like most of the places everywhere. However, Areas that needs improvement would be check the toilet smell before checking in people to the room. People BBQ but food attracts insects. Black oil spots on the beach leaves marks on the feet here and there. Prices of drinks and food items is very high. However, nothing is worth the fun you get and for sure will visit you place again with a bigger group.
