Reviewed 10 August 2013

And we'll be back for more!

Simply love coming here, great apartments, stunning views, beach on the doorstep' secure private parking and very helpful staff!

Stayed in various apartments but sea view penthouse is an experience you'll find hard to beat anywhere in the UK.

We'll be back in 2014

Room Tip: The sea view apartments are icing on the cake!

Stayed in 2 bed non sea view apartment. It was spotless with everything you need with a good WiFi connection . Enjoyed the afternoon and evening sun on the quieter balconies round the back. Secure car park and literally a few yards from the North Bay beach.
Would highly recommend and we will certainly be returning.

My husband and I stayed at The Sands and treat ourselves to 3 nights in the Sea View Penthouse which was not a disappointment. The views from the wrap around balcony were breath taking and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore both at night and in the morning were so relaxing. There were a couple of niggles with the apartment itself like speakers being disconnected to the sound systems, corroded batteries in the remote and curtain poles loose which we didn't expect for a 5 star establishment but this would not stop us returning and didn't ruin the experience. We will definitely go back and will save again to stay in one of the penthouses, the treat is well worth it.

Room Tip: Would definitely recommend the penthouses, but if can't afford one then go for the sea view room...

Fantastic, stayed in the penthouse sea view, wanted for nothing, we even had sunshine. Took my elderly parents and there was a lift right to the top floor and we never had to more than a minute for it. Having a car parking space was fantastic. We will defo be back.

We stayed here for 4 nights during the recent heatwave and had a great time in sunny Scarborough. As many others have said the apartments are lovely, clean and modern with all mod cons. The reception staff are really helpful and friendly with nothing being too much trouble for them. We had asked for a lower floor as we're not too keen on high balconies - vertigo! They more than accommodated this by giving us an apartment that was on the upper ground floor but still had a nice balcony to sit out on. The open top bus goes to the South Bay from outside and is great on a sunny day. Would definitely come back to The Sands as it's the only place we'd stay in Scarborough.

My husband and I stayed here in July with our 9 month old daughter. The place was amazing and we would stay again at the drop of a hat. It is a little pricy if you are on a mini break, although I think it is worth it overall. It is right on the beach of the North bay. I didn't know Scarborough well as it was our first trip, although the North bay is a lot quieter than the South which we really liked. There are Sea view apartments available and different sizes. We had a 2 bedroom without a Sea view. There weren't any seaviews available when we booked, although not sure I would have paid an extra £30 a night for this anyway. It was really spacious and could have easily accomadated another couple and baby at a push.

The bedrooms were both Spacious and you get all the things you need. Soap/towels/robes/toilet roll. The fact that you have highchair and cot available means you don't have to fill the car up. Other extras include hangers and a fan. They also had a welcome pack for us on arrival with Milk/bread/butter/Jam/Rock - this was a really nice touch, although we had brought all these things so a either advice when booking or a slightly cheaper price would be a better option.

The guy we spoke to on check in was really helpful and sent us off to check in. They also had several leaflets in the reception for what to do in Scarborough. They also had fee Wifi with a really good connection as the modem was in your apartment.

Parking is included, which is really useful round there as presume you would have a way to walk. They asked us to park in a certain spot, but our family car wouldn't have fitted in the space advised, we parked in a larger space and just told them on check in. They were fine with this.

There are quite a few restaurants locally and there is a bus to the North bay but we walked it twice so as long as you enjoy a walk no need for public transport. Only a 15 min walk to the castle too which we visited (separate review)
