5 hour trip but well worth it! I have been home 3 hours and miss this place like mad! Staff, food, value and everything else is of the highest quality. The spa, gym and pool cannot be better. Staff on arrival and all throughout were so helpful and accommodating! Never stopped in a cleaner hotel. Will be returning for my... More

We used the swimming pool here one rainy day whilst holidaying in Mawgan Porth in June and it was very enjoyable. It was the first swim for our 4 month old and second time swim for our nearly 2 year old. We could all change in one large cubicle which was fitted with a changing table and we were the... More

Definately a hotel for families. The whole layout of the hotel (apart from spa and gym) internally and externally is geared for children. We have 2 boys, age 3 and 5.5 years old, both loved every minute of their holiday. Even when weather wasn't the best, they got into their wetsuits and headed for the heated outdoor pool with slide....Brilliant!... More

This hotel is purely set up for families, with the added provision of space allocated in the restaurant and bar for adults. We used the hotel for a base for a few days, the only room available when I booked was a two bed contemporary suite with sea view, the view was great the main bedroom overlooking the sea with...

We wanted to take our daughter, her husband and two children away for half-term to somewhere that would suit us all. The Sands fitted the bill admirably. Our rooms (standard pool suites) were well laid out, comfortable, quiet and kept very clean. The restaurant "zones" were well planned and we were able to have a quiet evening meal when the... More

I visited with a friend for a spa break. This hotel is not a spa. It has a swimming pool with a steam room but that is all. Also, we associated a spa break to be adults only but the pool was full of children. It was not the relaxing break we were hoping for. However, the staff were friendly... More
