Pleasantly surprised. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The pool was out of this world, and the cliff walks excellent. Amenities for kids are very good and the food is excellent. We'll be back!

We received a very warm welcome from the staff. The room was clean and big spacious and had a nice sea view. Activities and facilities to be done in resort are refreshing. Overall a very good experience to stay. I would recommend friends and family to visit Sands Resort.

This hotel is ideal for families but we were a group of older folk staying for a choir festival. It was great, the food was particularly good as they were catering for sixty of us. A very good hotel, nice warm pool and sauna, brilliant things for children to do.

We stayed at Sands over Easter and it was as good as ever! Years ago, we used to visit with our children during school holidays but the last few visits have been outside of peak times. I must admit that this year, the eldest grandson having reached school age, I did wonder if I would find the number of children... 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...
