We recently had a short, 3 night stay at Sands which was our 2nd stay there within 12 months. Why we love this hotel? The location is superb, fabulous sea views and a short distance from the beautiful Watergate Bay. We stayed in a Contemporary suite which is ideal for parents who want a bit of privacy. The separate childrens...

I recently stayed for a short break - the third time I have visited Sands Resort Hotel. The impressive sight of the hotel sitting proudly on the spectacular cliff top is always exciting, and the rather plain exterior belies the bright, contemporary interior decor. The staff are very welcoming and are keen to make your stay as comfortable as possible....

Stayed here for 4 nights - and were very impressed. The contemporary room we were in was very comfortable - as good as any hotel I have stayed in - with a queen size bed. The bunk bed and single bed were in a different adjoining room, giving parents that extra bit of privacy. It had tvs in both rooms...

We stayed for 2 nights in September with our 2 year old in a family comfort sea view room. It was great for our daughter to be in her own room and we could relax and watch tv without being concerned we'd wake her. We used the baby listening service, which meant we could enjoy a 3 course meal and...

Just had our staff Christmas party here and I have to say, there is nothing negative about this place! The hotel itself was lovely, well maintained and clean. The rooms were so big, with amazing views and everything we needed. Our Christmas dinner was delicious and the waiters/waitresses were very attentive to our needs and all done with a smile...
