the room was ok as a 2 to barely 3 star. Its attached to the hotel. Had an evening meal there on a Saturday night. The bistro was empty when i was there. After getting the fisherman's basket i understand why. Everything in it was all pre-battered from a frozen packet. Over cooked and not very nice. The staff in the motel were nice and friendly. Beds are old and pillows paper thin. Im sure there are better options for that price bracket.

Good value for money but has been a long time since it was a 4 or 3 star property”

Great location, good value for money for the location, however the grounds are a bit grotty. Needs a good clean in and around the laundry area and also the front of the property. The hotel that is advertised as part of the complex has been closed for some time, so there is no restaurant .This being said the staff are great are very helpful. The rooms are in urgent need of a update.

Cockroaches and ants in the spa room”

I have stayed at Deserts Sands on previous occasions without a problem, however this time around we were besieged by cockroaches in the spa room, and lines of ants crawling out of the spa bath jets. The room also looked tired and unclean, almost as if no guests had stayed there in some time. Really huge letdown considering I had recommended we stay there, after the last trip I took.

Convenient location, good for an overnight stay, pub on property great for meal and drink. Noisy.”

Pro's - Pub on property walk to meals and a drink. Food was good. Bed was okay comfort. Tea, coffee, toaster, microwave, fridge, ironing all in room. Toiletries supplied shampoo conditioner body wash, table and 2 chairs out front of room if you want to watch the stars have a dink looking at car park, no views. Con's - squishy rooms, tight car parking, paper thin rooms, hear people talking walking packing cars closing doors. Staff conversing etc. Loads of work vehicles so early starts and loud conversations, Door slamming early in mornings. Air conditioning was noisy loud and would wake you during the night switching on / off and you could also hear your neighbours air-conditioning as well. Not a place to stay if you are holidaying. Too noisy, too squishy. Only 1 chair in room and bench.
