Second visit of the year and never disappoints whatever the weather. Immaculate well equipped apartments furnished to a high standard. Lovely helpful friendly staff. Beautiful views. What more could you want really ?

I cannot rate the apartments highly enough. The building dates from 2008. Staff were friendly. We had a two bed apartment with large open plan kitchen/diner and two double bedrooms, one of which ensuite. Excellent value when compared to B&B's in Scarborough, well designed and clean. Would not consider anywhere else if visiting the resort.

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it! We stayed in room 408 which had stunning sea views from all windows. The fittings and furnishings were great, we had 2 small issues in that the wifi was very temperamental and we had to keep resetting it on receptions advice (it's separate wifi for each apartment). And the... More

We spent two nights here for a much needed family break. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were so comfortable we stayed in to eat both nights. We would have no hesitation in recommending and will definitely return at some point. The young lady from reception (India) met us in the car park... More

I spend my life traveling and staying in different hotels worldwide and this one is up there with the Mandarin Orientals and Four Seasons in terms of service and quality. The way we were received and greeted was excellent. The apartment is superb - very well done and extremely comfortable. The views are stunning so I highly recommend taking a... More

Spent a relaxing girls weekend in one of the penthouse apartments. Spacious and beautifully furnished and the views are gorgeous with amazing sunsets on both evenings. The wrap around balcony was huge and I'd imagine it would be fantastic in the summer, we managed to get to use it a little bit on Sunday morning (in February) when we all... More

These apartments are perfect for a family or friends on a break who don't want the restrictions of a hotel. Easy to find and in the quieter north shore area, secure parking and a really friendly reception staff who were also very helpful. Our apartment had an amazing sea view and also a view over the headland and the castle.... More

After a really poor experience elsewhere we rang the sands at 5.30pm to check availability for same day. All credit to the staff - Danny could not do enough for us and even waited until 7pm (should have gone at 6) to check us in and make sure we were happ. We have stayed here before and it's perfect, a...

My friend booked this for us as a much needed break that wouldn't be too far from home. This was a wonderful treat! We had an apartment at the back with no sea view, which is a shame but it is a bit pricy and couldn't afford the sea view unfortunately. However it was still lovely, we arrived on a... More

We stayed for a weekend at the end of January, myself, my husband and two of our children. It was a much needed break following a difficult time and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect place. The apartment was immaculate, and beautifully furnished, with every modern convenience. The beds were super comfortable and the showers hot and powerful. We... More
