We took advantage of an offer that was being run by the Sands. The sea view apartments offer superb views of the North Bay. On this visit the master bedroom seemed marginally smaller than the one on a previous visit. The furnishings also vary from apartment to apartment. Great facilities, great location and very pleasant attentive staff. Will definitely stay...

We arrived on 22/11 and we're supposed to be checking into apartment 301, however on arrival we were informed that one of the beds was broken so we were being checked into apartment 401 instead. This was all done with no fuss or delay by a very polite apologetic young man. The apartment was comfortably furnished and beautifully decorated, fully...

We stayed in The Penthouse and enjoyed the panoramic views over the North Bay. Every need is catered for in these apartments and the quality of furnishings is 5*. Combine this with the wonderful customer service from all the staff and you have a holiday to remember. Chelsea in particular looked after us on our last visit.

We discovered the Sands quite a few years ago now and it never fails to impress. The apartments are always fantastic and this stay was no different. With views of the beach and the castle(particularly spectacular on a dark night) the location is great. The apartments have everything included that you could need/want: wi-fi, hairdryer, microwave etc. Can't gush enough...

Our second time at the sands in room 107 this time. Very quiet apartment , great for people watching and relaxing with a nice big wrap around balcony. The service is always first class. Top tips are the walk around to the South Bay is good and the open top bus back is just the thing for £1.50. The shops...
