Having a lovely stay once again in a three bedroomed superior appartment . Everything as usual is excellent. The reception staff really friendly and helpful. The welcome pack was so appreciated. Loved the views from the balcony - can certainly recommend The Sands.

We came here for my mother in laws 70th birthday in September, on arrival we were shown to our apartment, the chap was very friendly and helpful.

The views are amazing, if you like to watch the sea, and hilarious people playing crazy golf, right next door, The accommodation is spacious and spotlessly clean , I am a clean freak and couldn't fault the cleanliness. Every basic item... More

This hotel is in an amazing location and our 3 bedroom apartment was huge! Very clean and well equipped with everything you could need. We didn't have a sea view apartment but it was still nice to be able to sit on the balcony, not sure if a sea view is worth nearly double the price if you are out... More

However, although a high chair is provided (so they obviously expect families with small children to stay) the glass table and coffee table with... More
