Went over bank holiday week- end, found everything to an amazing standard, went as a "three generation" family, loved every second there. Would def recommend, was on the more expensive side of our budget but worth every penny. Room 203 was where we stayed did have a slight sea view, would love to stay in the "penthouse", maybe next time.... More

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children. We were in apartment 2. The flat was amazing. You could live in it. Washer and drier was a great plus. This was the first holiday I went home with all clean clothes. The welcome pack was really beneficial too. Our only regret was that there were no sea view... More

Really loved it here! Great apartments I could sit and relax on the balcony and watch my children play on the sand below! They are at an age where they are capable of being responsible so not toddlers etc would not leave them alone! Lovely clean apartments and good parking too!

We have been staying at the Sands every year for 4/5 yrs now-brilliant apartments, matchless location-clean communal areas. (I think the exterior of the building is staring to look a little scruffy now) The one thing for me that stops it getting 5 stars is the Gym-it has been getting progressively worse over the last few years-broken equipment etc-but at...

Excellent weekend stay in one of the penthouses. The accommodation was of a high standard and sitting out on the huge balcony to watch the world go by was perfect. Very comfortable, good location. A great high quality base for the area. Travelled into Scarborough elsewhere to eat. Not that much in the North Bay. Penthouse was quite pricey just... More

Myself, partner and 23 month old son stayed here for the weekend and the apartment was really lovely, beautifully presented and had everything we could possibly need. It was a great location, our only regret was that we didn't request a sea view room. They also had a loaf of bread and milk and a few essentials there for when... More

First time staying at The Sands and it was as good as all the reviews if not better. We stayed in 410 sea view which had an amazing view - waking up to the sea, surfers & views of scarborough castle. North Bay is good location as the beaches were cleaner and quieter. Its 10 minutes in car to south... More
