One word sums the place up - FAB! We went to Sands last September with our 4 year old and 7 month old sons. We all had a great time - the facilities and food were all great and they also had a wonderful wine list. The evening childrens clubs were fantastic, our eldest son loved going so much he cried when it finished. The rooms and setting for this place are great and the beaches surrounding the area are beautiful. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. There is so much more that I want to say, but cannot squeeze in the words. To sum up, you can't go wrong with this place, its a great place to go with your children, with the added benefit of getting a couple of hours grown up time to yourselves in the evening. We hope you have a great time!!
