Just returned from a short Christmas break at The Sands and it was the best Christmas ever. The accommodation is five star - spotlessly clean, well stocked and with views to die for. We cannot fault this place and wanted to stay forever!

My daughter and I came to stay for a short break from Christmas Eve to Boxing Day. From the moment of arrival, we were made welcome and helped with our luggage. Once booked in, we were taken to our beautifully appointed 5 star apartment. Five stars very well deserved as the place had all top notch amenities, was warm and comfortable and beautfully equipped with everything you could wish for to make your stay as pleasant and effortless as possible! Stunning sea view from our wrap around balcony!

What we found most reassuring though, was the level of secuity both for car parking and within the apartment complex. We had a great time and the staff were most helpful and cheerful throughout. Can't wait to be able to visit again, thankyou for making our 'alternative christmas' such a success!

We have been regular visitors to Scarborough for many years, and have always had difficulty finding the perfect place to stay. All the hotels and guest houses we have tried have had drawbacks - until we found The Sands.

This new development of apartments is superb in every respect. We were seduced by the brochure to give it a try and our experience far exceeded our already high expectations. The staff are highly professional; when you arrive you are immediately greeted and met, then taken to your apartment, where everything is explained in detail. Our apartment (3 bedrooms, two bathrooms and gorgeous sea view) was excellently designed, furnished and equipped - with especially high quality kitchen and bathroom furnishings and equipment. A welcome pack is supplied with all the essentials to settle you in. You can have a cup of tea or coffee and a snack on arrival before you go out to shop! There are very pleasing, unexpected touches like good toiletries supplied and free availability of DVDs, Wii games, etc. to keep children (and husbands!) occupied if you stay in the apartment.

We are Scarborough addicts in any case; it has a world-class theatre (Stephen Joseph/Ayckbourn), spectacular coastline, two very contrasting bays, cliff walks and high quality restaurants (an award-winning Italian restaurant - La Lanterna - which is also world-class), and much more. These new apartments have now made our regular trips to the resort perfect. Previously, we have tried many hotels and kept changing because of various dissatisfactions. Scarborough has long lacked really first-rate accommodation. Now that we have discovered The Sands, we shall look nowhere else, and shall probably be tempted by the apartments to make even more visits to Scarborough in the future.

I can't say a negative thing about these apartments.

My wife and myself have stayed here twice already and we are planning to spend most of our winter holidays at this complex.

We have always had a sea view and what a view.

When you come from Yorkshire you have a in-built image of the level of accommodation at Scarborough, when my wife told me we were going to spend our anniversary at some new apartments in Scarborough, I nearly cried.

When we arrived the staff were pleasent and very helpful.

We opened the patio doors and were astounded at the view, we spent the next few hours sitting there with a hot cup of tea and biscuits, as it was the beginning of February and very cold but the fact that we were sat about 50 feet above the breaking waves on the Scarborough sea wall was sensational.

The standard of the rooms was exceptional and the quality of finish was just as good.

As i said at the beginning neither me or my wife can find anything negative to say and we have stayed in 5* hotels and apartments all over the world.

Most enjoyable weekend. Appartments excellent, very friendly staff, ideal base for exploring Scarborough and surrounding area. We would recommend an excellent restaurant only 4 mins walk from the Sands - Jeremy's - meal and service superb.

The Sands sea front apartments, are very new and modern, they are built within metres of a large sweeping beach, the location and views are absolutely fantastic, as are the apartments. Every little detail has been thoughfully taken care of, from games for the children to robes, and welcome packs. Staff are based on site to take care of any enquiries, and free secure parking is also provided. Scarborough and the surrounding area are beautiful, lots to do and see , it is our second visit this year, there will be many more next year.
