The whole experience as a family hotel was excellant. Plenty of onsite facilities for children regardless of weather. The hotel and room were clean and the staff were so polite and helpful. The baby listening ensured we had enjoyable meals together as a couple and our son loved eating at the same time as other children. We stayed half board... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times, great facilities for kids: inside and out. The rooms are great. The food is of a good standard, and the beach is just a short walk away. What more could you want..... oh the bar is well stocked and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Will defiantly go again.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. The room was nice and clean, staff were excellent, restaurant food was good, pool is nice, grounds are lovely, view is stunning. However, I just couldn't help but feel the whole time I was there that I was overpaying. Based on the rate we paid (about £144 per night for the 2... More

We were lucky enough to get a table overlooking Morgan Porthole beach on a sunny Sunday lunch time, what a beautiful view. Our waitress was friendly and food was absolutely delicious. Had never had a roast surveyed that was before and the deserts were to die for.

When we entered the hotel I really liked the feel of it. It seemed quite newly refurbished, and the staff were really friendly. The room was really nice and clean and I liked the decor. My toddler enjoyed the entertainment that they put on for free which I thought was a great idea. We didn't have long enough to check... More

Hi Thank you for your kind review. Just for the sake of clarity, we don't charge by the room we charge by the person, with discounts getting greater the younger the child. The charge for the baby would include cot and linen, baby listening service, free buggy hire, food as required and a share of the hotel overheads such as... More

Easy to book on line although I completed the payment at the Hotel. A friendly welcome at the reception. All staff friendly but courteous. The room was comfortable but too hot. we suggested that handles could be provided in the shower, this was a power shower which was lovely but not waters saving. We were treated very well by the...

We had a fantastic week long stay at Sands. The staff, particularly the restaurant staff, were so friendly, helpful and welcoming. They all made an effort to chat to you, they are a real credit to the hotel. The food was brilliant, probably the best we had had at a hotel (including our honeymoon in mexico!) Lots of choices and... More

The views from our room were out of this world, with a seating area right by the window, you could gaze at this view for as long as you like. South West Coastal path walks were easily accesible (just across the road in fact). We even had a cheeky resident pet seagull, who would tap on our window every time... More

Stayed here for my daughter's 3 Rd birthday. Paid over £600 for three night stay. Multiple issues... 1. You will be punished for bringing kids and will be isolated in breakfast bar. 2. Room was not as clean as expected. Found hair in bathroom. Bath is way small for an adult and bathroom floods after bath with spillage. 3. Pillows... More

Thank you for your review which surprised us as you seemed to be having a good stay with us.
