We enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Sands Resort! The location was ideal, the bed was comfortable and the staff was pleasant and informative. The restaurant was closed for the winter season but there were plenty of restaurants in the area.

Our apartment was on the second floor, a one bedroom, bath, living room, dining area and well equipped kitchen. The living room and bedroom each had their own balconies, which were right over the boardwalk. The queen bed mattress needs to be replaced. It was difficult to roll over in the bed because the sides were "uphill." The linens were quite acceptable and could be exchanged daily if we wished. The sofa bed could sleep two, but was so low, it was difficult to get out when just sitting on the... Read more

The rooms are small, the beds are small (maybe queen), the mattress was lumpy. The hot tub needs to be emptied, scrubbed and re-grouted. I usually can find more to like about a resort but not in this case. The only plus is the location right on the broadwalk with a suites having ocean views.

Very disappointed with facility. Read previous reviews and decided to stay for my anniversary because reviews were overall good. Very old building. Not well maintained. Smelled like mildew. Air vents were loaded with dust to the point clumps of dust blew out when the air came on. No pets rule not enforced. Dogs in building that were not service pets. Staff was not helpful or friendly, just spent their time talking to one another or playing on their phones. Whole building is in serious ... Read more

This review is based on what RCI pride themselves on! Take note of the photos. I didnā??t speak with a manager because you will only get an apology or some excuse not worth me hearing while on vacation! Once I arrived in my room I immediately notice the vents on the wall that was covered in dust! Then I go to my bed turn back the comforter and there were 2 stains on them and the sheets appeared to be unclean! The shower curtain was dingy and omg Iā??ve never seen this before ever in a hotel the ... Read more

Pool area was nice, good location, room was super clean. If you're staying for the week, there is a towel exchange program instead of needing to wash your own towels. A regular sized washing machine and dryer are available to use for free on the 6th floor. Rooms are a little small, but good use of space available. They have pool/beach towels that you can check out for pool and beach use instead of needing to tote your own around. First floor hallway was a little rough, but everything we saw abov... Read more

Reserved this room through the Armed Forces Vacation Club, so I got a great deal. Stayed for a week. Great location near mid-point of the Virginia Beach boardwalk. Within walking distance of everything you need. Restaurant is small, but has great deck facing the boardwalk and bike path. Food is great, and service was quick and friendly. Not open for breakfast, but it would be hard to compete with Doc Taylor's, just across the street (apparently part of Tautog's Restaurant). I was in a large... Read more

Staff was awful...not helpful, not hospitable, and paid very little attention to their guest. Upon arrival, they told us we had to carry our own bags to the room and handed us a plastic bag with soaps, toilet paper and paper towel. HUH??? Shouldn't that already be in our room??? We were treated like an inconvenience instead of a guest! Rooms need updating. We had a balcony without chairs. A cleaning fee is charged but you will NEVER see a maid for the entire week! Washer and dryer available but ... Read more

The staff are very friendly and make you feel comfortable when checking in. They have a parking garage. The resort is very clean and our room was an Ocean Front with a nice large balcony over looking the beach. Very quiet and comfortable.

Alyssa, Carter and Cale were every friendly and handled the lightning very well. Carter got everyone out of the pool in a very professional matter and alyssa made us all feel very welcome to the hotel. We will be visiting again because of them.
