This review is a year late as I am relatively new to Trip Advisor and just read reviews and didn't contribute much last year. However we went last summer as a family with 2 kids and this place was expensive for us as we were on abit of a budget and very nearly booked somewhere cheaper but I'm really really... More

My brother was born in Scarborough during the war. It is a special place for us both. Memories... The Sands was the perfect place to celebrate his 70th birthday. The apartment was absolutely fantastic. Very luxurious. The weather could have been better but you take that chance at the end of November. We had an amazing three days. Friendly staff... More

Expensive, but quite possibly worth it. I think it's quite expensive because it is the only place in Scarborough that offers such views, high standard of apartments and customer services. On arrival we were allocated a parking space and a lady came to see us at the parking space. They helped us with the luggage as well. Only slight disappointment... More

Always extremely clean and excellent staff. Does not disappoint. My only criticism is the hallways can be very noisy if children are running around in them. No staff around in late evening to speak to about issues.

If you are planning to stay in self-catering accommodation in Scarborough, there are a lot of options and many of them are very good. Having tried others, though, we continue to return to The Sands. This has been our fourth visit. The location is perfect. Scarborough, with its north and south bays, has always been a game of two halves,... More

We have been to the sands many times and as ever the accommodation was of a very high standard. However since our last visit the gymn has been moved into the Kepwick building, overlooking the car park into a room around the size of the living room of one of the two bed flats. If this facility is of importance... More

Wonderful 5 Star apartments on the best beach in Scarborough. A terrific find. Spotless well appointed, so thoughtfully furnished with add ons like deck chairs, wind breaks, ect. You can have your supermarket delivery added to your room for your arrival, free DVD rental. Top rate

These apartments, located on the North Bay, are superb. We have stayed here twice this year and will return again. On both occasions we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with sea view although there are other 1 bed and 3 bedroom options with or without sea view.
