My family has been staying at Sandalwood for more than 10 years, this year we agreed not to go back. The manager is so rude she is driving customers away. The location is great. Directly on the gulf. The rooms have been updated over the years, but the rudeness takes the cake......

Stay Far away from this hotel! We got charged $10+tax per person for our friends visiting us for the day and they weren't even allowed to park at the hotel. The room was dirty and run down! The staff is unfriendly and lazy. Housekeeping refused to make our beds and only gave us 2 towels. If you have ever seen...

Not for the snobby, but clean and comfortable and close to everything. it's not the Ritz but when you come to Florida you come for the beach I hope. If you came for premium amenities you should have stayed in North Dakota.

This hotel is a gem for the price. If you want a high-end hotel then you will hate it here. It is laid back and comfortable but definitely no "glitz." Most of the rooms have been remodeled. The location to the beach is fantastic and it is right next door to the Doubletree Resort so you can go sit at...

I grew up at this resort. My family would go for spring break year after year and we never had a bad experience. Location is great and beach is amazing! As long as Sandalwood is there, we will continue to come to Redington Beach!
