This is the 3rd year running I have spent a spa weekend here with an old school friend. Our spa treatments were heavenly, in the tastefull, quiet spa. The pool and steam room are nice, but our favourite pampering, the Jacuzzi has been removed:( The breakfast was lovely as was our evening meal, my only criticism is that, being a... More

My boyfriend and I booked Sands for a last minute break from the 7th- 12th April. I did lots of research before booking into different hotels but decided although Sands is advertised as extremely family orientated this was the best one for us. When we arrived we couldn't believe how quiet and peaceful the hotel seemed. Our room wasn't ready... More

This place is fantastic - it really exceeded our expectations. We stayed here with our 5 year old and the facilities for children are great - the heated swimming pool was a big hit (and the adults also enjoyed the steam room), the games room, the outdoor adventure playground, the maze and the bouncy castles gave us really everything we...

Our aim was to try and stay at Watergate Bay this Easter, but that being fully booked we thought we'd try Sands. We didn't know quite what to expect, but from our arrival we were impressed. The facilities are great - the pool, the really fun 9 hole pitch and putt, the basketball, the excellent massage - could go on!... More

This is our fifth time to Sands and we have enjoyed all of them. The resort changes every year as they reinvest profits into the Hotel. It is always staffed by excellent people who are genuinely pleased to help. Superb Spa on site and excellent food. Can be slightly quiet out of season but loads of activities and families in... More

Our room, 66 (includes 65 & 64) was an apartment suite and was very comfortable with a superking bed for us and a decent size... More

What a lovely hotel that offers a warm and friendly welcome. We were using the hotel for business over 2 days and although we were not staying there the staff made sure we had everything we needed. Food and drinks were to a high standard and very enjoyable. Special mention has to go to Martin on Reception, outstanding customer service.... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Sands Resort last September with my husband, in-laws and two young step-children (4 &6). The thing that I loved most about the Sands was how it is truly a hotel for everyone. They have a wonderful dining room that has multi-course dinners, with different seating times and areas for kids, kids dining... More
