This was a wonderful break. We had a seafront apartment with fantastic views. The apartment was perfect with everything you need and lots of space. Everywhere was nicely decorated. There was a huge jacuzzi bath, a lovely private patio area and a great balcony with patio doors so you could see the sea whilst sitting on the sofa. There's free... More

In town for motorcycle racing at Oliver's Mount. Prices in general in Scarborough seem to have increased significantly over June 2015. Instead of travelling with my son and staying in a B&B we elected to hire an apartment at The Sands and travel with our partners. Very impressed from the moment we entered the apartment. Nicely furnished and well maintained.... More

Stayed mid July in 3 Bedroom Superior Apartment cost £1430. Great location with fabulous sea views for a lot of the apartments. Expensive and when we arrived travelling as a group of 2 couples and a single adult it felt a bit penny pitching. Only 2 bath robes supplied. Only the one ensuite and the other 2 bedrooms had to...

We first came to the Sands November 2012 after getting married in a small gathering, we jumped on a train and have never looked back. We return here for our anniversary and love it everytime. We always opt for a room with a seaview so if the weather is rubbish we can have a meal while looking out to sea.... More

The apartment view has a wow factor! The apartment itself was spacious, bright and airy. It had everything that one could require and the welcome supplies of milk, bread, jam, tea and coffee a welcome bonus. The balcony was put to good use! The staff stayed back late to let us in and were friendly, courteous and helpful. We really... More

Had a Penthouse Suite and it was delightful. Well furnished with every possible need catered for. Even a wine chiller. I would recommend to anyone who likes quality. We enjoyed the views and we think this position is the best in town. Parking spaces allocated in secure car park.

We have just come home from a two night break at The Sands Apartments. We originally booked to go in June in order to see Alfie Boe. Unfortunately that was cancelled but The Sands very kindly let me move the date so that my daughter and family could join us. The apartment was simply lovely. The sea view from all... More

Great apartment. We stayed in a 3 bed apartment. It was immaculate and had great facilities. Ideally situated in the north bay right on the beach. Amenities such as shops, cafe and bar underneath. Highly recommended. We will definitely visit again.

Visited with my daughter and her husband as they had been several times before and loved the experience. We had a two bedroom, sea view apartment which was excellent, very clean, lovely views and extremely well equipped, although there is one allocated car parking space per apartment, they let myself and my husband use a space for the first night....
