The management of Sands know their market and cater for their needs extremely well. They seem to have thought of everything you could possibly want or need, with an excellent attention to detail. The play facilities & kids clubs are well thought out and my 3 yr old had the time of his life at Sands. The food was surprisingly good and the lobby & bars are very pleasant.
It may seem picky and we did have a great time at Sands but I would say is that with a little effort there could be more of a luxurious feel probably appreciated by Mum & Dad. The pressure in the shower was very low and the towels provided could be bigger. I found the mattress quite hard and spent most of the week longing for my own. (Inexpensive towels & mattresses abound at Ikea)
The hotel website is a slick production showing (obviously) the very best side of the hotel. I would warn you that from the outside it is not particularly attractive and I was pretty taken aback on arrival. Once we actually got into the room I was happy enough but the common staircases and corridors have quite a retro (not in a trendy way!) feel.
Overall a super hotel for small kids, the most relaxing & family friendly hotel we have stayed at in the 3 years.
