My two week stay at the Sands was very comfortable. The rooms are well appointed, the breakfast provided with the room is excellent, and the staff are exceedingly helpful. 5-7 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to the Old Souk while also being insulated from noise. Views from the balcony are amazing. The lobby is also beautiful, especially the flower wall.

10/10 Exceptional

Sands Hotel was super clean and comfortable. Staff were welcoming and family-like. I even met the owner who upgraded our room to a Junior Suite for free (since there was a minor mixup during booking on Expedia). For someone living in Lebanon it was a great getaway for me and my wife to a refreshing room only a few walk-minutes away from the most ancient port city in the world with rich history, breathtaking sea view, cosy atmosphere and delicious mediterranian food served at different cultured restaurants surrounded with rose flowered gardens and impressive lighting at night. I strongly recommend for both Lebanese and non-Lebanese alike to discover this hidden gem in the heart of Byblos, north Lebanon!
