Have stayed here 5 times now, all the apartments are presented to a very high standard and offer a high degree of comfort and quality. Great showers, well appointed kitchens, smartly furnished and comfortable beds. DVD player and large tv's, WiFi in every apartment. The sea view rooms offer great views of the bay. Service is always great too.

We were a little apprehensive about the claim of the apartments being 5 Star but we needn't have worried. Not a speck of dust was found in our two bedroom apartment (room 303), all the kitchen equipment and utensils were like new. The two bathrooms were immaculately clean. The beds, one double and two single were very comfortable and the...

I took my children to The Sands for our first holiday as a single parent family. We were lucky enough to get the first hot weekend of the year at Easter too - and we stayed in room 101, a 3 bedroom apartment. Everything was fantastic, amazingly clean, everything seemed brand new (though it obviously wasn't just amazingly well maintained!),...

From what I understand, the apartments are all individually privately owned & are therefore all furnished differently. A few are dog friendly and must be requested in advance. We paid an extra £15/night for our dog. Our apartment, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, non-sea view, was lovely, nicely furnished, comfortable & very clean. The reception staff were extremely helpful and welcoming,...

It's worth booking an apartment with a sea view where you can see the beach and out to sea all day and into the evening. We were welcomed on our arrival and during our stay the staff were noticeably willing to help in any way, so clearly there's professional management. Our apartment was well proportioned, exceptionally clean, fully fitted modern...

Had a lovely relaxing weekend at The Sands. Stayed in a 1 bedroom non sea view apartment which was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The staff are excellent and the whole set-up is very professional. We will definitely be returning!

We stayed in a sea facing two bedroomed apartment and enjoyed just sitting watching the sea come and go - sadly too cold to use the balcony this time. It was a little disappointing to see that the apartment was starting to look slightly run down and we were wondering if that is the case generally. Carpets, furniture and furnishings...

We have stayed many times over the past few years in various apartments in the Sands. We just love it. Our son and family live in Scarborough and being able to have them all down to visit and provide meals is just so lovely. We have had several celebration parties there and invited friends. The staff have no issue with...
