“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Stayed in 2 bed non sea view and it was excellent. Very clean and spacious plus well equipped and fast WiFi. The kids loved it. Hats off to the staff who could not do enough for you.
Blue Crush improved as well.
We will be back!

We have just returned from a three night stay at these apartments, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & Boxing Day, it was so good we have booked for four days next Christmas. We had a three bed apartment, with fantastic views, excellent quality fittings throughout, the staff are some of the best I have come across, nothing is too much trouble, they are so helpful. There were six of us staying and three more who came to visit, they were so impressed they have booked their own apartment to join us next year. The kitchen is better equipped than my own and Christmas dinner went without a hitch. We can't wait to go back.

Yet again,The Sands have exceeded themselves with both the standard of the accomodation and their fantastic, friendly customer service. It is our fourth visit and we will be back again very soon.
Perfect location, a few feet away from the beach in a very quiet area of the town. Everything is within walking distance for those that prefer to walk. We opted for the car as it was a bitterly cold Christmas day!
I wouldn't hesitate on recommending this to both friends and family.
5 stars for everything.
The apartments really are something special. Lovely to see continued high standards throughout the last three years.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a beautiful sea view with a balcony.

The sands are high spec apartments, and we found the accommodation perfect for a long weekend break with our young family (we have a 3 year old and a 1 year old). The apartment was modern, very well furnished and fitted out with high spec appliances and had a terrific sea view. Theres lots to do nearby for a young family, railway, open top bus, beach, crazy golf, our 3 year old loved it. The great thing about the accommodation for a young family is that once the little ones had gone to bed, we were able to relax in the main living area and cook a meal without disturbing the little ones, not something you could do in a hotel. The sands is excellent high quality accommodation and we will be going back next year.

Excellent birthday weekend for my son and Mum. We had four apartments on the top floor of Kepwick, all had great views. India and the reception team were wonderful arranging and decorating the rooms ready for us on Friday. This is our 6th visit and we're booked again for 2014. These apartments are great and definitely worth a visit.

We have just stayed for a family event, two apartments- in one two couples in another two couples and a baby, a 4 year old and another adult.
you get everything you need including bread, marmalade, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and even sticks of rock!
everything was very clean and well kept.
Things to improve:
parking - you only get one spot per apartment and with people traveling from all over this is difficult however they do try and accommodate but I imagine in summer this just cannot work. So travel in one car where possible!
The plumbing in our toilet was very loud however we informed them at the end of our stay.
additionally some of the rooms for couples are two singles pushed together whilst we understand this is easier for the company to ensure they meet higher demand they didn't stay together at all and meant we actually essentially slept in separate beds.

there is loads of room and woo and DVD library and everyone was friendly and it was quiet.
will stay again

I've just spent 2 nights at The Sands with My husband and our 2 year old granddaughter. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom sea view apartments. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel welcome, the staff at reception were fantastic nothing was too much trouble everything was explained. We were shown to our apartment taken inside and given a tour of the place. The apartment itself was amazing there was plenty of space for our granddaughter to move around in the front room, the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need, the en-suite was fantastic (in fact it was bigger than my bathroom at home ).
We had no problem sleeping even though they are digging up the road in front of the block we stayed in.
Everything was prefect in fact we were so impressed that when we checked out we booked to go back next year.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so wonderful.
