We booked a separate massage at £60 each for 45 minutes which was lovely. The outdoor pool although heated was a little cool in February surprise surprise but the hot tub...

My day was perfect. All down to the planning team and a special thank you to Maxine for keeping my day just perfect.... she held everyone together and kept spirits high and stress levels low. Our stay was brilliant. Our room over looking Carbis bay was superb. The staff were very attentive. The food in the Sands restaurant was delicious....
