We booked this hotel very last minute as we decided to leave a damp, dirty holiday site but remain on holiday! We enquirer about two rooms and the hotel initially only had one, but they took our details to see if they could sort something out for us! As a family of 5 it's often difficult to find hotels that... More

We stayed in 2 apartment suites with 3 children and 2 grandparents. Sands provided us with a holiday to remember. Unlike our usual holidays with children, this holiday had virtually no stress points, it was just easy and fun and we even felt pampered and rested too. We loved the apartments with their separate living spaces, the sheer amount of... More

It was my first time at a mew company booking the Christmas Party..not only was I worried that my colleagues wouldn't enjoy it but that I would make a pigs ear of the organising side... with Leanne help from the Sands I needn't have worried. She was extremely helpful in everything down to meeting me in person on the night... More

We frequently visit Sands because we know that the children (5 and 8) will be really well looked after and we will get quality adult time together - lovely dining, good wine list and peaceful adult-only spaces in the evening. This was the first time we have been at New Year and the hotel was very lively, not to say... More

I spent a week at the Sands Resort with my husband and stepchildren (5&7) in 2013. We enjoyed it so much, that we came back in August of 2014, during our summer vacation in Europe. I'm writing another review, as this visit was so much different than in 2013. On our 2014 trip, we splashed out and got the two-bedroom... More

I was taken to The Sands for a surprise birthday treat with all my family. Don't be put off by the external appearance, inside it is very modern with a beachy style. Rooms were lovely, friendly staff and a great location. My only very slight gripe was that the choice on the evening meal menu was a bit limited, but... More

Leanne, who had been my contact when booking, sought me out to introduce herslef which I thought was a really nice touch. We went to Sands on the 13th december for our work Christmas party. It was a very busy night but the organisation ran like clockwork. Everyone's meal came at the same time, everything was hot and everyone was... More

Had a fantastic time, staff very helpful when booking and keeping in contact via email. Swimming pool lovely and warm, food excellent, my suggestion however for breakfast would be that you change the toaster. In hotels stayed before the toaster rotates and is a lot quicker instead of like a household toaster, this would help with the queues, by the... More

The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly the facilities were great with long opening hours and the rooms are more like suites what a surprise the space and seaview and attention to detail has not been overlooked. The food you couldn't fault breakfast plenty of... More
