Great location and staff, only feedback would be in regards to the bathroom. The shower was too low on the wall and I had to crouch which was uncomfortable, in addition the water was leaking everywhere so really wet when getting out the shower

Great for families with young children
Sands is great hotel for families with young children. We (2 adults, 1 5yo) stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. I think the best thing about the hotel is the staff. The vast majority of staff were friendly, happy, helpful and very accommodating. The facilities for children are excellent. There's plenty to do for them, entertainment laid on every evening and clubs they can go while parents have a break if you're that way inclined. The food was generally good. Dinner food for adults tended to be better than lunches and some of the dishes were very good - not fine dining though but nice.Breakfast is fine but I think could do with more options since if you're staying for a while it does get repetetive. Our room (a comfort suite) was clean and well house kept but did need a bit of TLC. We also found the mattresses and pillows not very comfortable and should have been better. Also worth noting is that it isn't air conditioned. Forgot to mention the location - great location next to some really lovely beaches and coves and just far enough away from Newquay to avoid too much hustle and bustle. In summary, we think it's a great place to stay and will definitely consider going again but I expect slightly higher quality rooms and more inclusive services at this price point (i.e the same kind of price you can fly to europe and stay in a 4-star for).
