Now, honestly I have been reading all this reviews and can't be possible that all this people are wrong, it's my first vacations in long time and my husbands too, has been difficult times for us, we want to relax in a nice place, that's why we chose Sands,I will be checking our room before we pay the rest of the money, if that's OK with the administration, just to make sure; we will be driving for 10 hours to South Carolina from New Jersey,and I think isn't fair that when we get there we find out we are not going to be comfortable and happy on our mini vacation. I give it the benefit of the doubt, My husband cant sleep without AC and i have health issues too, i hope we don't get disappointed.Can I check my room before we pay? Thank you...
Sands has nothing to do with Ocean Forest Plaza anymore. A Hospitality group named Hosteeva bought the few contracts that remained with Sands. Each condo is individually owned. Those who rent their units rent thru other rental agents or VBRO. As one review stated, do your homework because each unit is individually owned and some invest more into the upkeep of their units.
The Sands does not own, nor run Ocean Forest Plaza! OFP is building with 206 condos in it, each individually owned. Some owners rent, most do not. The Sands no longer rents condos at OFP thankfully. If you look at VRBO and read those reviews, you'll find quite happy customers. Yes the parking is tight, but every building has "issues" The rules for parking are clearly visible. We own a full sized SUV and get through the garage without any problems. Just go slow and take your time!
The Sands runs the Ocean Forest Plaza. I had to check in and pay at the Sands Dunes for my room at the Ocean Forest Plaza. If you go to Sands Resorts web page, you will see Ocean Forest Plaza listed. My family stayed many years ago at Ocean Forest Villas, which is next door. We were happy, but that's been almost 14 years ago! Good Luck! I'm still sick about paying the $160.00 to get my car that they towed on a property I paid to stay!
