I stayed at the Sands Resort with my wife and two children, aged 5 and 4 for six nights over the half-term at the end of May. I had booked the hotel based on reviews I read on tripadvisor. Those reviews proved to be highly accurate. Everything about the hotel is of an excellent standard, from the spacious, clean, modern...

This was our second time having a family holiday at the Sands Resort. Our three children are 5, 3 and 3, and they had been asking regularly during the last 12 months to go back. We had another wonderful stay. The really great thing is that nothing is too much trouble. Feedback is listened to and acted upon when things...

We have stayed at Sands three times in the last three years, first with my son when he was one and subsequently with my son and daughter. I really cannot speak highly enough of the place.

The hotel is excellent. It seems to cater well for both families and couples as there are many different dining options, room types and bar/lounge areas. This was our first ever hotel visit with 3 children and after a stressful start (baby's sleeping bag left at home), we soon relaxed. The rooms are excellent and the childrens' room has plenty...

Hi Thanks for your kind words about Sands, I'm glad that you and your family got the most from holiday. With regard to the gym we previously had a small gym with limited equipment that was free. We canvassed guests to see if they would be happy to pay for the use of a modern gym with air conditioning and...
