My Wife and 2 Teenage kids have just returned from staying at the Sands Resort for 11 nights. Amanda, Matt and the staff were very helpfull and friendly. the facilities were great and our apartment was good (maybe a tiny bit too small for us). Great location, just far enough ot of town but close enough to walk (20-25 min) and 5 min walk to the beach through the Mirage. Would Highly recomend to young families and couples!

We stayed at the Sands Resort for 14 nights, with our 3 young children (8, 6 & 6) in early July. Amanda and her staff were friendly, informative and made every effort to give us the best holiday we could possibly have. Our apartment was clean and well maintained, with a beautiful outlook overlooking the resort pool. The pool was perfect for families, with a small adjacent sandpit (and toys), balls and noodles to use in the pool. A quiet location, with an easy 5 minute walk to the beach. We absolutely loved our time spent here, and didn't want to leave. Highly recommend.

Sands Resort was a lovely place to stay, near enough to town that you could walk, but far enough to be quiet. The unit and grounds were very clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly. Good value for money too. High recommended!

Being an ex travel agent I am generally quite fuss. This property was very good and most outstanding was the excellent service. We appreciated a welcome call just after arrival and this standard of service was maintained throughout the stay. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. It's location just out of town ensured it was nice and quiet and although there was a bus stop very close by, the nice 20 minute walk was easy.

The Sands was perfect for our family. My wife and 17-year-old son loved the facility, the closeness to the beach, and the service of the staff. First class and great value.
