Had a fabulous stay here, everything that could be needed for families was available, even down to wetsuit hire etc. Only grumble was that the menu was a bit on the fancy side for families, with my 12 year old and 2 year old struggling to find something that they wanted to eat. However, the food was of excellent quality... More

They really have thought of everything for entertaining children, brilliant outdoor spaces and games and the adventure playground, through to the bodyboards and wetsuits you can hire for free aswell as the baby backpacks and bugggies to help with the long walks you might go on and easier access to the beach with...

We stayed at Sands Resort Hotel & Spa in July this year. We had a great time. Our Childrens ages ranged from 2 to 12 and there was something for everyone. We upgraded to the evening meal which was delicious - a great choice of food. I would recommend this as there is not too much near by. The views... More

Stayed in Suite A for half term with our 2 children aged 4 & 8. Space was great, 2 bedrooms and a living room, fab views of the sea out all the windows. Ideal base to explore Cornwall and Newquay only 5 minutes away. We did bed, breakfast and dinner. All meals were really good, lots of choice for adults,... More

We stayed 4 nights at the start of half term and had a super time. Entertainments for the children, and the food was amazing. There is also a lot to do on your doorstep and two great coastal walks directly from the hotel. I would highly recommend it for families with young children. The staff cannot do enough for you....

We recently stayed at this resort in April 2014 and the views from our room were gorgeous. Great location for walks. The suite we had an excellent layout for our family. However the rooms were very hot and we couldn't seem to turn down the thermostat. Also, the food choices in the restaurant were not very good. My son didn't... More

We enjoyed a four night dinner, bed and breakfast deal here at the beginning of October. It couldn't have been better for a break with our toddler. The views from the room were stunning and the staff were all friendly, cheerful and willing to help. From the moment I booked, communications were clear and friendly and they were happy to... More
