I would highly recommend these apartments for a getaway. The location is beautiful - the nicer part of Scarborough beach with easy access to the more lively hot spots. Although we couldn't' really stretch to pay for a sea view apartment - we weren't disappointed with what we got. The place is immaculate. The decor and facilities are spot on.... More

This is the nicest place I have ever stayed at. We usually go to Butlins for the kids but for an extra treat went here with some money I saved up as I have always wanted to stay somewhere where you can wake up to a sea view! It was so beautiful. We stayed in Room 104 and although it... More

We stayed at The Sands for 3 nights for a weekend away in Scarborough. We were fortunate to have lovely weather while we were away which always helps. The apartment itself was lovely, beautifully decorated with a lovely of the beach. However, the apartment over looks the busy main road and is very close to the open air theatre which... More

Stayed here 13th-16th August, with my two sisters so there was 3 females between 30-40. We booked a 2 bedroom sea view and while we were allocated an apartment around the corner overlooking peaches and cream cafe and crazy golf we could see the sea and the view was beautiful, we decided that actually having a view of both the...

The Sands has two buildings - the one in the official pictures, and another next-door to it. The latter goes around a corner, and we were given one of these apartments, around the corner. So although it has got a sea view (which we paid heartily for), the view is oblique. If we looked straight out from our balcony, our... More

Had very high expectations here due to the very high prices charged. In the most part they were met however not everything was as good as it should have been Firstly the car park is a disgrace. Far too many spaces crushed into the available area. I only have a city car but anything bigger the doors wouldn't have opened.... More

We have just returned home following a wonderful long weekend in a one bedroom apartment. We chose to stay here because of it's proximity to the Scarborough Open Air Theatre as we were attending a concert there. It soon became obvious that these apartments are second to none - clean, luxurious, comfortable and lovely location. We stayed in K307 which... More

We took our two grandchildren to The Sands and stayed in Kepwick 216 where as a couple we had previously stayed. This apartment is ideal as we could sit on either the balcony or the sofa and watch what was happening on the beach. The children thought that the apartment was "awesome" and loved watching the dogs on the beach.... More

A wonderful experience for our second visit to The Sands. The apartment was superb with views over the sea. So much so we have booked our third visit in the same apartment. Can't recommend these apartments enough. As always the staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Went for a romantic break here and can honest say the apartment we stayed in was top notch. A lovely view of the sea, very spacious and so clean on arrival got to give credit to the Sands staff. On arrival they were so helpful and friendly and couldn't be more professional. Our apartment was a very high standard and... More
