The Sands is a hidden gem with a very comfortable feel to it. Excellent restaurant, quiet with well maintained grounds. Staff were always helpful and responsive from Andrew on the front desk to the staff in the restaurant, housekeepers and Chris, the valet I will definitely stay in the future and recommend to any friends travelling to Indian Wells

Nice Boutique type property. Clean, Friendly Staff, convenient location right on HWY111. For the price, lack significant amenities. No exercise Facility. Ice was a room service order, and Food service leaves a lot to be desired.
