          If you're going to be on the island for a few days, this place is a great pick. You're right next to an awesome beach, and the units are nice and modern.Our bed was comfortable. The kitchen was nice. Everything felt more or less modern....More

          We stayed here for a long weekend. I would highly recommend booking a beachfront apartment at the sands for as long as you possibly can. Who needs Hawaii when you can stay on Onetangi beach. What a spot.

          I have stayed for a weekend there. The apartment is great and perfect location (front to the sea at onetangi beach). The only negative point is that the checkout is very early at 10h30 not like the usual 12h. But besides that would totally repeated.
