Each and every member of staff we came into contact with was friendly helpful and attentive.The hotel was clean comfortable and welcoming .It was a great pleasure to visit a hotel that was still owned by the same family and after 18 years since our last visit was just as we remembered it and more. Helpful staff, facilities for both... More

We just returned from a lovely break at the Sands Resort. I must admit that I wasn't certain quite what to expect and that I was very very pleasantly surprised! The rooms were large and clean and the facilities are very well maintained. We stayed on a half board basis. There was always plenty of variety on offer at breakfast... More

We have just returned from Sands, and had a fantastic stay. I have lost count how many times we have visited, but it has never let us down. We visited with 3 young children (4,2 and 5 months), and had an excellent relaxing time. It a fun, safe and welcoming place and the staff are excellent. The rooms are large,... More

I have visited many hotels in Cornwall during the course of my work and I can honestly say that this is one of the best. The views are amazing. The food is outstanding! All of the staff without fail are friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further.

Having stayed here on 2 occasions, one as part of an adult group and the other as a 3 generation family celebration, I can recommend it for both. The wonderful sea views from the rooms/suites are clean, comfortable, with plenty of space for the family to congregate when wanted. The kids clubs and activities are very well organised, safe and...

Stayed for 5 nights with our 3 boys (10, 7 & 5) and had a fantastic time! The outside space is great and the boys loved playing football with other children. The staff are so helpful and the service is excellent. The hotel is very clean and the suite provided spacious accommodation. The food is ok, a good choice at... More

Extremely friendly staff, very accommodating. Great facilities for the children. Our kids enjoyed the outdoor play and swimming pool the most. We returned feeling very relaxed with extremely happy children.

Stayed three nights here with my 9 year old boy a week before holy week so it wasn't that busy. The best thing I love about this hotel is - regardless of number of children (over 8y) joining the sports activity, staff is always enthusiastic and willing to facilitate the game even if there's one or two kids around. I'm... More

We booked a 'Pool Suite' for a one-night getaway; our first night away since having our five-month old baby, and the first thing that struck us was that there were no doors between the two rooms - which meant that when our baby went down for the night, we also had to lie in the dark, in virtual silence, in...
