We decided to have dinner at Sands as we were staying at Discovery Shores and we didn't arrive until around 8pm. The menu was fairly limited but the food was very nice. A good option for westerners when in Boracay and the view over White Beach is an added bonus.

found the prices here to high for Philippine standards. Food qualtiy was good and service was excellent. Just to pricey for such small servings.

Good sandwiches and fruit shakes. Don't order salad as the portion is very small and expensive. Fruit plate is ok.

Went to Sands for our first lunch in Boracay. Since it's at a ritzy hotel, I expected to pay a little bit more than average prices. I had a sandwich which was quite tasty and also sampled a shared pizza as well. The food was good but the wait staff were great. All were helpful and attentive and did so... More

Went for the buffet lunch and it was more to the China - Korean market. Did find a few things to my taste but seems all the meat had that same roast duck taste.

The staff were always smiling and anticipate the our needs. They're very friendly and we felt taken care of. This was my 4th time here and the quality has never wavered. They always offer a wide spread of food for breakfast.

Good food but expensive dishes. You can find much cheaper one outside of the hotel. The staff is friendly and environment is wonderful.

The service was excellent and the food delicious. We had a variety of dishes that were shared. The fried pork belly was cooked in cubes that had enough portions for the four of us. An eggplant dish mixed with pork was amazing. The beach at this end of the island has the softest sand and is less crowded than further... More

We have been staying at Discovery Shores for the better part of week now, and absolutely love the resort (more on why in a subsequent review). Unable to come to closure on a local restaurant last night we decided to give Sands a try. I had been avoiding it based primarily on the so-so breakfast buffet there as well as... More

Loved everything here. Good food and wonderful service. Had their Angus burger, scampi pizza, bolognese pasta and turn split. Clean air-conditioned restrooms. Planning to stay in Discovery Shores next visit so I can dine here every day 😊
