We've been to Sands so many times over the years and it's just great. Our three grandchildren love it as much as our children used to. Still superb facilities for little ones and the food is very good. Great that they have enough space to be able to avoid it feeling like it's full of children ..... even when it's...

In many ways I want to rate this as five star. Over the years we've stayed here 4 times. My kids love it, it's convenient to the beach, has great sea views from the rooms, the facilities for children (a maze, bouncy castles, a zip wire, swimming pool to name a few) are amazing...and yet...the food is lacklustre (I know......

My daughter and son-in-law recently held their wedding at this hotel and it was fantastic! Her wedding planner Andy made sure he communicated with my daughter on a regular basis and made us feel so welcome when we visited from Plymouth. They wanted a beach theme wedding and this venue ticked all the boxes and was so laid back and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. The staff are really friendly and welcoming. The room we had was really big and it was really nice. The only downside is we couldn't sit outside. The food is reasonably ok but not that great. I really like this hotel but it's not really ideal for couples it's more of...

I booked a 2 night stay at this hotel last week for my family and I. DBB at a cost of £700. After a 4 hour drive, we arrived at the hotel, my heart sunk, as we pulled up outside of the hotel it was very depressing, and it looked like what I can only describe as a motel out...

This was our first experience of a family-friendly hotel and we booked it with a little trepidation. We didn't need to worry. Everything was fantastic! Staff were very friendly and great with our 16 month old. Rooms were spacious and had everything in them that you'd need. We booked a garden view suite so had a double bedroom, living area...

With a 15 month old and a nearly six year old to expect any kid free time on holiday is a fantasy right! Well that was until we stayed at Sands. Not cheap I grant you but value for money I would say absolutely YES. Activities, crazy golf and mini golf ( small grass golf course) tennis, basketball, zip wire,...

Clean and large rooms. Lots of facilities for f smilies and walking distance right next to beautiful beaches in both directions. We walked to Porthole and Westgate as well as going down the cliff steps directly opposite. Nice pool and steam room with bar and games rooms.
