Sands Resort exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it to any families wanting to stay in the area, particularly for the good value it offers. We has a...

We booked a long weekend break with our almost 2.5 year old. Having been recommended the hotel I wasn't too sure on what to expect but what a fabulous place! A family friendly hotel without being over the top! Great staff, literally nothing was too much trouble from buying a few more nappies to ordering food that wasn't on the...

My boyfriend and have just returned from a stay at the Sands Resort Hotel and Spa. In all honesty, I booked this hotel by accident, my boyfriend had suggested booking an alternative smaller hotel nearby, as we thought it was more 'us', so I was tempted to change the booking, but I'm so glad we didn't! As two adults travelling...

Good quality accommodation. We thought the food was very good, and together with the service provided by all the staff we were very satisfied with our stay. For a family with young children the Sands would be ideal, even for us at the other end of the age scale we found everything offered was fine, especially the newly introduced Moroc...

I accompanied my friend and her small baby on a toddler break, we parked up at the hotel and arrived at reception, with a small child and bags; we were 'welcomed' by a severe looking lady at reception who was only interested in obtaining the balance of the payment within the first 30 seconds of standing there. We were directed...

Fantastic hotel for families, I couldn't rate this more highly as there are so many free activities to keep everyone entertained. This hotel caters for all ages and the Moroccan spa is a treat. Great location too.
