This was our 5th visit to the Sands and it just gets better. This time we stayed in Lockton 406 – fab spacious apartment with fantastic views of the castle, beach and sea. We stayed for 5 nights but I wish I had booked for longer. The apartments are to a very high standard with everything you could possible need... More

Could not fault the place. Excellent helpful staff who were pleasant friendly and it felt like you were talking to a friend. Brilliant location right on the beach which is the quieter end of the beach. We will be booking for next year shortly. This was our second visit and is a firm family favourite now.

Stayed Mon -Fri in one of the 2 bedroom, sea view apartments. Absolutely beautiful, very spacious and exceptionally clean. We paid extra for the sea view, which wasn't really a sea view. Both our master bedroom and twin bedroom looked on to a giant hill to the right side of the apartments. You had to go on to the balcony... More

This is a great place to stay and I should know as I come from Scarborough originally and spent all my summers on North Bay beach, very clear and top quality fixtures and fittings. We were attending a family wedding on the beach so it was an ideal location. Staff are all polite from Sean the security man to house... More

This year was our third year at The Sands and the standard is always excellent. The apartments are of a very high standard and well equipped. The location is perfect for the beach and the reception staff are always helpful. Only thing missing from this particular area of Scarborough is a playground for the children.

Stayed here for three nights in a three bedroom apartment and the place is an ideal location along with being very comfortable. Had a really good time with the whole family (six adults and two children under 3), spacious and good facilities. Main thing for me was the nice bed and comfortable mattress

Where do I start? What a lovely place. On arrival we were let into the secure car park where we were met by Laura and taken up to our apartment on the third floor ( inland view over the car park which was not a problem) and shown around. Certainly a 5* apartment with all the facilities we needed and... More
