No hot water properly, only warm. Bathroom is terribly old and warn out as the hotel itself. Service was ok, I guess. But no way I'm staying there again. Everything is so old even a/c was either on or off not temperature control

Sun and sands is a pretty basic 3 star hotel. I spent 3 nights in Feb 2017 there for a business trip. It is situated in Al Rigga where there are a lot of shopping centers nearby. There's also the al rigga metro station within a three minute walk. The hotel was not bad in terms of cleanliness as far...

I stayed here only as I went through a Tour operator flying from Chandigarh. The hotel is just an average hotel. Very small reception space. Probably ment for people spending less on tours. Meals are also average.

Hotel is so so. The good thing is close proximity with metro station and swiminh pool. All other things are average. Even tea pot is not available. It was made available on request. Wi-Fi connectivity is very slow.

We had a very comfortable 5 nights stay. The staff is very friendly and biggest advantage is the location. The metro station (Al rigga), Convenient store, restaurant all are at just a 5 mins walking distance.

It was my first visit in Dubai, so I can't make any comparison, but if I compare 3 stars hotel from Dubai with 3 stars hotels from Poland or from Mediterranean Sea countries the winner is obvious - Dubai! Standards and services in this hotel exceed standards in EU, so I can fully recommend Sun & Sands to everyone who...
