We stayed as a couple in a 'pool suite' over the weekend. The room was very basic. The premises as a whole looks like an apartment block in Benidorm, we were disappointed and felt the pictures online didn't match the reality. A lot of noise could be heard from the doors slamming just outside the room early in the mornings.... More

Our whole experience was perfect from the outset. Friendly helpful staff, clean modern decor, practical room setup, excellent facilities, good food and totally family friendly. Nice families with well behaved children.

We stayed at this hotel for the first time to visit friends. What a fantastic place. Superb location with wonderful views. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the service provided from all the staff was excellent. A real feeling that staff genuinely took a pride in ensuring we enjoyed our stay. Although their were lots of... More

Within the hotel there are so many things to do for both adults and children with an excellent schedule of events to ensure everyone has a holiday. The staff work tirelessly to provide a first class service. We stayed with... More

Visited September 2013 and returned September 2014 for 4 nights with our 20 month old. Staff are all friendly and no request is too much. Free parking is plentiful for the time if year we have visited but might be a bit tight in peak season??? Rooms: Had a pool suite last time which had a great balcony for us... More

The range of children's facilities are excellent (indoor pool, outdoor pool, bouncy castles, play park, zip wire etc) but it was the way the meal times were structured that clinched it. Eating in a restaurant with two 'active' children is stressful and especially when others are trying to enjoy a quiet meal. The family meal times ensured that all families... More

We had a lovely week here at the Sands Resort over the summer holidays. The suite which consisted of 2 generously sized rooms with an interlinking door, was perfect for my sister, her three children and myself. The bathrooms were a good size and we loved the views towards the back of the hotel overlooking the countryside. The grounds and... More
