    Beautiful!”

    This resort had everything we needed and we had the best time, so peaceful and relaxing and the room was clean and spacious. The location is perfect and we didn't need to leave the resort once, everything is on your doorstep. We had never snorkelled before and I'm not the best of swimmers but it was so easy to get out to snoopy island and we saw so many different fish. No turtles which was disappointing but another snorkeller had spotted a black tip shark that day so there is plenty to see. The drive through the mountains to get to sandy beach was lovely. I would highly recommend this resort when visiting Fujairah

    Love this place”

    The reason most folk go here is to visit Snoopy Island where all kinds of marine animals can be seen. So far, we've seen turtles, Dory, Nemo, black tipped reef sharks, cuttle fish and so many other kinds of fish I don't have the space to list. Yes, some of the rooms are dated and yes, the food isn't Michelin starred. BUT the rooms are clean and the food is good honest fare that doesn't cost a fortune just because they can charge so much. Our room was right on the beach, we'd snorkel and swim til around 11 am, go back to our room to cool off/shower/watch a little tv/snooze/get room service even. Then head back out to swim/snorkel/kayak whatever til suppertime. We always ate the the restaraunt and always enjoyed the meals. It was very relaxing and just what we needed for our short break. Yes, there are newer hotels just up the beach for the same price, but having to jump back in the car to return to those hotels wasn't very appealing - we've done so in the past and it just spoils the break. Bite the bullet, book Sandy Beach and enjoy your time there. We're going back very soon!

    PARAMOUNT EXPERIENCE!!!”

    My husband and I chose Sandy Beach because of the close proximity to The Dive Center. We booked 10 Open Water dives and our room was literally a 2 munute stroll to the area to suit up and board the boat for diving. We booked the one bedroom two story Deluxe Suite Townhouse. Yes, the furniture may be a little outdated but the room was VERY CLEAN!!! Cool Air conditioner on both levels. Major plus with this unit was TWO full bathrooms! Beautiful view of the ocean. HUGE private balcony on the second floor and balcony on first floor. Lots of space, which I need. Only a fridge and wet sink but that is all we needed. The grounds are lush, green and well maintained. The staff at the front desk, Snoopy Bar, restaurant, and room service were ALL friendly and attentive. Do not know why other reviews stated otherwise. Maybe because you get what you give. Just saying..... Great food! FRESH & HOMEMADE onion rings and fries on the trio platter:-) We will DEFINITELY be back soon!!!

    Perfect place for a family get-away”

    Access to Snoopy Island, beachfront rooms, child-friendly atmosphere

    I had no expectations when i booked an overnight stay for my family at Sandy Beach. The room was reasonably-priced and what we only wanted to do was do some snorkelling at Snoopy Island. I was therefore pleasantly surprised that the room, although a bit old, was quite nice and clean. The best part was that it opens right into the beach front and we had a very nice view of the sea from our room. There was a play area for kids right on the beach a few steps away from our room. The beach was spotless and the water was clear and perfect for snorkelling. Overall, we were happy with the resort and will definitely come back.

There is a BBQ with each chalet which was perfect for us.

    Outdated and disappointing”

    This will be a mixed review as Sandy Beach has some pros and cons in our opinion. Pros: The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful, hospitable. Cannot commend the staff enough. Snoopy Island and the grounds of the hotel are outstanding. Air conditioning is fabulous and room proximity to beach great! Fridge in room is great to have! Cons: Outdated rooms. Bed extremely uncomfortable. Bathroom awful. Food mediocre -- especially at breakfast. Pool small and crowded. Overall we were underwhelmed with our stay at Sandy Beach.

    Bring or Rent Snorkel Gear!”

    Wow, Wow, Wow! Let me tell you, the free snorkeling right off the beach at Snoopy Island is fabulous. The water is clear and the number of fish, turtles, etc is amazing! I am used to the hot water of the Arabian Sea (Dubai and Abu Dhabi). The water here is perfect (September), could snorkel all day! The beach at the resort has some of the softest sand I have ever felt. Be warned, after about noon it is scorching hot so bring sandals down near the water before you go out for extended swims! :) The restaurant and bar were nice and we enjoyed several meals there. The grounds make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. The beach is great to just relax by, swim, snorkel, or gaze at the stars at night. Plenty of showers to rinse the sand and salt off prior to leaving the beach. I highly recommend a stay here, it's an especially good value for the money.

    Sandy Beach Hotel was a nice place to spend a weekend. It is right across from Snoopy Island and there is some decent snorkelling out at the beach. There is a dive shop there and other water sports available. The room was comfortable and clean. Pool was a bit crowded with children on the weekend but there are lots of beach chairs at the shore where you can relax instead. Could even receive a wifi signal to my beach chair from the bar! Food was just ok, we tried the dinner buffet menu. Staff were pleasant and we really did not have any issues here.

    Unreasonable treatment by hotel staff”

    We visit Sandy Beach Resort a couple times a year (living in Dubai), usually will go as a small groups, hire the chalets/ bungalows and we BQQ at night. No difference for us last weekend, I hired a bungalows, my other friends stayed at the other apartment block. After enjoying the day at the beach at 7pm we started our BBQ at my bungalow. Then at 730pm our next door neighbour asked us to keep quiet because they have a baby trying to sleep. So, we were very considerate, turn the music off, kept our noise to minimum. Then at 830pm the hotel staff came up and told us there was a complain about our noise! Here is the funny part:- the staff looked extremely embarrass and told us there was a complain about noise, so I asked him if he thinks we are noisy, did he hear us on the way to our bungalow. His answer was no, but he just kept on apologizing and said that there was a complain. The funny thing is I asked the staff what he wants me to do, he could not give me an answer. It was not even 9pm! At the end we stopped our BBQ. My point is this is a holiday place, where groups going for BBQ. If there are guests did not like the noise even before the reasonable hours, then the hotel need to move the guests to a quieter corner. The hotel should not come and tell us about the complain. We found this treatment is unreasonable and unfair. All of us were paying guests, we expected for a night hanging out with friends doing BBQ. However, our night was ruined. They complained about the noise at 730pm! At a place where people hang out and BBQ. They choose to rent a place to have BBQ facility to bring a baby expecting everyone to go to bed at 730pm! The hotel management need to let their guests know what they are expecting. If they expect us all to go to bed at 730pm not to make a single noise, they need to let us know or put a big note on their web page!

    The location is perfect to go snorkeling in Snoopy Island as it is literally few meters away from the beach of the hotel. Rental costs of equipment are also cheap and reasonable. Staff are nice. Place is clean. Only shortcoming is the restaurant. It doesn't have a lot of option and the nearest restaurant to the hotel is about 20kms away. But overall, we enjoyed our stay and will surely come back.

    Overpriced hotel due to its location. The hotel needs urgent renovations or needs to lower the price. Beach should be clean but hotel staff mention they cannot do anything about cigarette buts in the beach. They keep the visitors as you can swim to snoopy island, that's the only positive thing about the hotel.
