Thank you to the Sands Hotel for a lovely stay! Our 21 month old thoroughly enjoyed all the facilities available to him (playroom, soft play, parks, swimming pool!) and we all had a good time. Positioned well to access lovely beaches, bays and ports across this area of Cornwall. Rooms and facilities were clean and well presented - we enjoyed...

Sands Resort exceeded our expectations. They had thought of everything to make our visit a real holiday for the grown ups, as well as brilliant fun for the children. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the accommodation was bright and spacious, and the food and facilities were outstanding. We had dinner together five nights in a row, while the...

We were a little apprehensive about staying here as it seemed to be aimed at families and not couples. We had two nights booked and were very surprised. The Hotel is internally divided so that people with children of all ages are made to feel comfortable and couples also have areas where children are not allowed after 8pm. Perfect. Breakfast...

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Sands with our 8 and 5 year old. The facilities for the children are very impressive. Both my two were desperate to participate in the clubs and activities with the childcare staff being really first rate. The entertainment put on early evening (at no extra cost) was of an extremely...

The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I was visiting for an event and had my 4 year old in tow so was a bit anxious about leaving her with a friend to find something to do. However they didn't need to leave the complex all afternoon as there was plenty to do. The rooms are really flexible -...

We travelled as a family of 5, children aged 8,10 and 13. All had a great 4 days relax at the resort. Loads of activities for kids to get on with from table tennis to swimming, surfing, golf and football, all of which were complimentary. Accommodation was more than ample for the 5 of us - kids enjoyed the selection...

My family and I stayed at Sands over the Easter holidays. If you are looking for a family hotel then look no further... The hotel is excellent. We stayed for a week, which included breakfast, high tea for the kids and then dinner for adults later. The quality of the food was excellent, great choice & variety. The listening facility...

Just returned from a fabulous week at Sands. The facilities for children were superb - both indoor and outdoor. In the summer the outdoor pool would be amazing in the spacious hotel gardens. Rooms at the hotel were good with plenty of space for a family of four. Food was lovely and all home cooked on the premises. Definitely hope...

Like 99ray, we just came back from Sands after a post Easter break. My son is 6 years and really enjoyed his time at the kids club and wants to go back there next time.
