Fantastic spacious and clean rooms, amazing swimming pool and very friendly staff. The tennis court provided great option to shoot some basketball hoops. My favourite was the cappuccino by the cosy fireplace.
Thank you for great weekend

    The most amazing pet friendly holidays experience we could ever have hoped for. Our dog enjoyed his holiday just as much as we did. We were all so happy to be there and felt so relaxed that we didn’t want to leave.

    A pet friendly holiday at The Sands is a holiday like no other.

    Loved the room and had a great nights sleep on the bed. Bathroom was very nice too. Had a great view over the golf coarse as as being close to the beach and all that Torquay has to offer. I would definitely recommend The Sands to my friends.

    I attended Sands for a 3 day conference and found the venue to be perfect for this experience. During the day we had a view over the golf course for our sessions, the catering was of a very high standard and the rooms were very comfortable.
