Enjoy many conveniences and amenities while staying at The Sands at Grace Bay.
In-Room Amenities: The resort’s accommodations feature all the comforts of home – complete with modern kitchens and appliances, dining and living room areas with comfy couches and a TV, screened-in balconies, and washer & dryers (in most units). For those traveling with infants or toddlers, the resort offers roll-away cribs, high chairs, and pack & plays that are available upon request.
Watersports: We offer a variety of exciting ways for families to enjoy ocean activities together during their stay. To fully appreciate our Grace Bay Beach location, we provide our guests with free use of kayaks, snorkeling gear, stand-up paddleboards and Hobie Cats. This complimentary watersports equipment can be reserved at our Beach Hut, between 8:30am and 4:00pm daily. Our friendly Beach Hut staff will provide helpful tips and hands-on instruction for the use of all equipment.
Bicycles: Complimentary bicycles are available for guest use from daylight to dusk. Bicycles can be reserved at the front desk on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our resort bicycles are a convenient and fun way for families to explore the island sights, beaches, and visit the local shops and restaurants during their stay.
3 Swimming Pools: Families have their choice of three free-form swimming pools that flow throughout a central garden courtyard and are connected by canals. The resort’s heated swimming pool offers stunning ocean views and our 18-foot diameter children’s pool is ideal for small children. A cascading waterfall, a relaxing Jacuzzi, and small grottoes adorn our pools. Lounge chairs and towels are available poolside.
Tennis & Basketball: The resort’s outdoor tennis/basketball courts are available from 6:00am to 11:00pm daily, and are lit for night play. Racquets are provided when guests reserve their court time at the front desk, and tennis balls are for sale at our resort convenience store. A family game of tennis or basketball is a great way to help the kids burn off some extra energy before relaxing by one of our three pools or beach.

Some of these family favorite games include scrabble, dominoes, and Trouble. Please visit the front desk to view our complete game board selection.
