“First Class Accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stayed in apartment 208 in this fantastic apartment block. Everything was catered for. I took my elderly Mum who is partially disabled and there was no problem with wheelchair access to and from the buildings or the apartment. The apartment was spacious and clean. A lovely assortment of cakes and biscuits were wating for us plus tea, coffee and milk. This apartment had a fabulous view straight along the marine drive and the beach. A view we never tired of. I did have a problem with the single beds not being very comfortable so I got in touch with Bernadette, the lovely lady who looks after this apartment and she got in touch with the owners and she came to us and brought toppers for the beds the very same day. she also told us that the owners were replacing both matttresses by the end of the week. Absolutely first class service. We will definately be returning at a future date.

Room Tip: For me 208 was the best view but I expect 108,308 and 408 will also be great.

We booked a 2 bed apartment and were blown away by the spec. All mod cons and a few more - playstation and free wifi - just like being at home

Great location overlooking the beach, free parking and a fabulous local taxi service to drop us at restaurants.

Will definitely be staying again

We rented a three bedroom apartment for three nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). We were personally shown our apartment, which was exactly as described. No sea view – apparently there are no 3 bedroom apartments with sea view – but we knew that when we booked. We did get the glorious evening sun on our spacious balcony, and we were outside during the day anyhow. The bedrooms were all very functional and beds comfortable. The two bathrooms were clean and had plenty of everything you needed. (The low energy lights took a bit of getting used to. They take a minute or two to get to full brightness). The kitchen was fully equipped with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, etc. The location of the place is right on the beach. The restaurant on the front was very handy and, though we only had pizzas, the quality and service was very good. The Nisa supermarket on the ground floor provides everything you’re likely to need, though milk, bread, butter, jam etc. is provided to get you over the first night/morning. It’s likely we’ll return.

Room Tip: switch the bathroom light on two minutes before you want to use the bathroom!

Lovely apartment - spotless, beautifully furnished, sea view from the balcony. Plenty of space, all we could need in the kitchen including jam, bread, milk and butter as a welcome package,

Helpful and friendly staff on reception - especially Dave. Very impressed and we will plan to return soon.

Room Tip: 3rd floor gave us a great sea view.

This was our second visit and a planned family meet up.
There was a mix up with our booking, which I only spotted the night before.
I got on the phone to the Sands Tram the next morning and they were exemplary. Took accountability for the problem and came up with several options for us.

Lauren in particular deserves special praise. She was absolutely excellent.

Problem sorted and we again had a very relaxing few days. Apartments lovely. Location stunning when the weathers good. Highly recommend The Sands for a short break.

Would also recommend the Blue Crush Cafe for dinner, Oasis for lunch and Martin at Skylark for fishing trips.

We visited for the second time & were not disappointed with our decision to return. So impressed we have booked to take the family at Christmas. Everything is clean, all the equipment you need to make your stay memorable. The staff are ALWAYS helpful & polite. Can't fault anything!
