    Reception are rude with Very bad hygiene ”

    Disgusting! I saw Employees picking their nose infront of the customers and putting their bugger everywhere! I also saw another one picking and checking plaques on their teeth in the elevator and making that hissy sound just to get rid something in between his teeth! And then pushing the elevator buttons. Yuck!!! The reception are rude and not helpful. I have to call at least twice to ask for something. They didn’t provide any toothbrush or toothpaste in my room.

    cheap but good”

    This is the continuance of my staying in this hotel, breakfast is not free but cheap and nice. Better have breakfast here since i feel weird in eating typical middle east food outside. Receptionists are nice and helpful, the black bell boy want to help moving our luggage excessively and seems annoying. everything is good except the 1st floor night club sound is heard until our room in 5th floor. the swimming pool is dirty, i can't use it. Hotel is close to two metro station, there are many prostitute name card spread on the way to the hotel if walking from union metro station. Overall it's good, will stay back there if i visit dubai again

    Night club ”

    A hotel room usually is used to sleep. This is not possible as from approx. 23:00 until 04:00 in the morning the stupid sound of the night club is hammering that you are falling out of the bed. The receptionist was not willing to give me a room on higher floor (I was placed on 3rd), rooms are available as I saw on the screen.

    better Deira hotels for same money”

    Many other hotels in the same price range are nearby with better rooms and facilities. Book elsewhere. Here is why I would not recommend anyone to stay at Sun & Sands: *despite being on the 5th floor, a thumping nightclub kept me awake until after 3 am *guests talking in nearby rooms could be heard easily *pool closes at 5 pm *was given a smoking room *Dh 50 for parking per day - other hotels nearby offer free parking *no food available in the bar/shisha area on the roof *housekeeping left the door to the room open after cleaning which I did not discover until 2 am (luckily nothing was missing) *cracked/caulked/black areas in bathroom felt unclean

    You get what you paid for”

    The room we got was a twin bed. It was clean but smelled like cigarette smoke. We asked for a room spray but the smell came back at night. I think it has to do with the AC vents and especially that there’s a shisha bar at the 8th floor. You can hear the music from the bar upstairs as well if you have noisy guests next to your room. We had noisy neighbors on our first night. The reception was friendly and accommodating. Our stay was comfortable though we only used it to sleep at night. The room looks old, you can see that with the toilet and the cabinets. The TV was not working as well, the LCD screen was defective. However, if you’re just going to use the room to sleep at night because you’ll be out all day, the place is good for a short time stay. Also, we had to request towels and for the kettle as there weren’t any provided when we came. I think they just have to improve on their housekeeping and facilities. Location and accessibility wise, this hotel is located at the heart of Al Rigga. It’s a few minute walk to the Union Metro Station and the Al Rigga Metro station. There are also a lot of food chains and grocery stores nearby so getting hungry is never a problem.

    Not recommend ”

    I’ve checked in 2.30 am after arriving from Turkey and when I entered the room , I’ve noticed the room was prepared after my arrival. There were lot of water stains (moped marks) on the bathroom and it was wet. After using the toilet I’ve tried flush and it didn’t work. Flush wasn’t working at all. Then I wanted to have a shower and towels were not there. Not even a face towel. After using the toilet I left everything for them to clean lol and used their duvet cover as the towel to dry my body. There were no water bolttles to drink after a long journey. Basically it was horrible. I don’t recommend this hotel for decent travelers and I don’t know about other travelers who looks only for cheap options.

    I really enjoyed this hotel stay. The room was beautiful and clean. I thought it was romantic with lights thru-out the room and the ability to dim. The only thing I wish for this hotel was to have internet in the room. However, internet was available in the lobby. Overall this was a great place to stay. I would stay there again.

    Superb services, friendly staff, clean rooms

    Stumbled upon this hotel on Agoda. As the title goes, this hotel is perfect for 3 friends sharing a room. I'm sure that the other room types are great as well, not just the triple room. The location is near the airport, the staff are friendly and on top of that, there is complimentary airport transfer! Overall, this hotel is a great find and we managed to get it way less than the original price on Agoda. Greatly recommended to anyone who wished to stay in Dubai. As for me, I'll surely be staying here again if I'm in Dubai in the future.
