Our apartment at The Sands was just what we thought - well equipped and very well placed to take in the fantastic views of the sea. The rooms were furnished nicely and clean. The main attraction though was the dramatic view from the main window of the ever-changing scene outside. It was great just to sit with a drink and take in the changes of the sea and beach. Although grey and cold, it still made for a refreshing break away from home. Would suggest that you request an apartment on a higher level to really appreciate the views.
