My boyfriend took me here for my 30th birthday, after previously visiting Saunton and falling in love with the art deco hotel on the headland. We had a deluxe seaview balcony room and it was stunning. The view was just mesmerising. I could lay on the (huge, comfy) bed and stare at the sea. We opened a window one night and I could hear the gentle waves crashing, it was sublime. The room itself was large and very comfortable and warm. We felt very at home. The restaurant was impressive - lively, bubbly atmosphere while being smart. The food was great, there was a main menu then specials each night. I liked that we had the same table each time we visited. Breakfast was fab also. It is definitely an older crowd here but we didn't feel out of place - the staff are incredibly welcoming and go above and beyond their roles. I constantly saw the staff smiling and chatting to guests - even the young waitresses. It was heart-warming. So sweet to see returning guests being remembered and welcomed back. I really hope we go back one day - maybe for my 60th!! We also had a cream tea and carrot cake & tea - worth every penny and the lounge/bar area is lovely to relax in - so much effort gone into the Christmas decs and it is so warm. The best things about Saunton Sands for me were the staff, the food and the location. Oh, and the pool - we had it to ourselves every day and it was so clean and the pool very warm!
