We visited the Sands Hotel with my daughter son in law and twins its is very welcoming, the rooms are spotless we had a sea view which was lovely. The breakfast was plentiful and Moe and Jimmy the hotel proprietors were very welcoming. I would recommend it is so near the pleasure beach, and ideal for families.
