I rarely give out 5 star reviews for hotels- there is usually 'something' that drags the hotel down a star (in my opinion, YMMV). However, having just stayed at the Sands for 3 nights, with my wife and 13 month old, I would just like to say that they deserved the 5 stars in spades. Sure the facade is a... More

When driving up the hill to the hotel, I was took back by the out dated decor on the outside, but upon pulling up & getting checked in my thoughts I the hotel completely changed....

I was a solo traveller and found this hotel to be fine for my needs. Room was clean and spacious and attended to daily. Food was grand and staff were pleasant and helpful. This hotel would be suitable to families with young children. There is an outdoor play area, a maze, a little golf course and climbing frames etc. The... More

I took my little girl away for 2 nights for my 40'th. I managed to get a good deal as they had a 'gap filler' offer on, I got dinner, bed and breakfast. They do have single parent deals on as standard also. Staff really friendly and helpful throughout. My room was huge! Views of the sea, corridors pretty noisy... More

I spent 10 days here with 2 small children under 4 and we had a great time! We had a triple interconnecting room which suited our needs perfectly- booking was hassle free! The kids club was great just missing evening entertainment but we were off season! The pool was nice and warm. And play areas were great too! It's not... More

We needed one night's accommodation when moving between two holiday cottages. We had often driven past Sands but not visited. After a look on the website we phoned to make enquiries. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. This carried on throughout our stay. We had a lovely, spacious and clean room. Essential when travelling with young children. The facilities... More

The day started with a fantastic breakfast with items that changed daily, the beds were so comfortable we almost missed breakfast one day, the evening meals were a delight, different each night with beautiful presentation, in my eyes not worth leaving the hotel and fantastic value too. The hotel is close to all the local beaches and wetsuits are free... More

My family and I visited for a long weekend and for the most part, it is a great place to stay - especially for families. The staff were great, the facilities are very good and there are services such as free access to wet suits, kid's beach toys and boogie boards that make it all much better than expected. The...
