Staying in a beach resort, without the overdone touristy items Oct 11, 2012
The Kaua'i Sands hotel is definitively not one of the youngest and hottest resorts on the 'Garden Island'. The hotel buildings do not look neglected but still could get some attention. And from what I see the hotel is currently just getting that. The rooms are clean but old. You still get a real room key (and have to pay dearly if you might loose it). The furniture, especially the air conditioner which is as noisy as an old truck, could also be replaced.

Yet, the hotel has many charming and positive aspects. It is nicely located at the ocean and in such a way that you can enjoy a dark evening at the beach without annoying lights or bar sounds. The site is nice and quiet. Its garden is well maintained and a pleasure to see. And most important the hotel is not too expensive.

Sands offers free parking, the majority of the spaces are at the far end of the venue and the parking boxes are extremely narrow. WiFi must be paid for separately. It has a private beach and two small swimming pools. The rooms come with a TV, a very noisy air conditioner (in my case), adjustable lamella windows, and a ceiling fan. They also have a small balcony. Ice is a problem here. The ice machine is not 24 hours available and the rooms do not have the regular ice containers. Small foam beakers, that can barely hold one soda can, are handed out instead. The rooms do, however, have small refrigerators. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Sands is within a few minutes driving distance from several restaurants, and super markets. Overall it is on a perfectly centralized location, all the island's highlights are within driving distance.

I would not recommend the hotel for people who intend to sit in the resort all day, but those who will be outside exploring the island and just need a clean room for a reasonable price will definitively embrace Sands.

Affordable Stay on Kauai Mar 24, 2008
I was a little skeptical about Kauai Sands but it fit our budget so we gave it a go. The place was nice. It was a little hard to find. The rooms were clean. The people were friendly. It was right on the beach but I am not sure it makes a good swimming area. They had chairs by the water so it was nice to have breakfast by the ocean. Their pool was nice and they provided extra pool towels. Not a whole lot of parking so beware. It is close to a shopping mall that has really good food and cheapy souvenirs. Within driving distance of most of the island which is convenient.
