10 reasons to stay at family friendly Sands Resort Hotel in Cornwall

Are you looking for a family hotel in Cornwall? Here are 10 reasons why staying at Sands is a great choice.

1) Lots of activities to choose from:

Holidays aren’t always about getting away from it all, sometimes it’s about a quest for fun and adventure. Sands Resort Hotel was built with families in mind and we got plenty of both to keep you busy!

Our wide range of complimentary activities and sports are ideal for action-packed family holidays in Cornwall. Enjoy a round of pitch and putt, play a few games of tennis or take to the lawn for some croquet. Our long summer days are the perfect time to get some fresh air.

If you’re a water baby, we hire wetsuits and body boards at our Surf Shack or why not take the plunge onsite with our indoor and outdoor pools?

We’ve barely scratched the surface of things to do, table tennis, a maze, basketball, football, a zip wire and lots of activities for kids are also on the agenda, but we don’t like to boast!

2) Evening entertainment during school holidays

How does a Pyjama Party sound? Or a Chocolate Extravaganza and movie night? Sorry, but this is just for the kids…

These are just two of the events in our summer line-up that is stacked with a range of fantastic family evening entertainment. With live music, quiz’s sports and crafts available in the early evenings your children can be having fun from breakfast to bedtime!  For a detailed schedule, see here…

3) Kids club for children 0 – 14 years

There’s an action-packed summer of activities planned for kids at Sands Resort Hotel.  Simply choose your age group and sign on up!

At Nippers & Pirates (0 to 3) tots can have fun amongst the soft toys and hang out in the  baby gyms.  The room also has a resting area where little ones can have a nap if they get tired.

Have a 2 to 3 year old? Say ‘Ahhhaarrr!!’ as the Pirate’s Club offers everything from toys to books and from a ball pool to a dressing up area. On sunny days the group head outside for some fresh air fun.

The Adventure Club (4 – 7 years) invites children to take part in activities like crafts and painting, quizzes and discos, plus outdoor fun on the bouncy castle. Our family hotel also holds sports days and sandcastle competitions. Then there’s regular Pirate and Pyjama parties as well as a disco.

During the Cornish school holidays children 4 years or older can also join the Hobby club and exercise their creative side with crafts such as ceramic painting, art sessions or T-shirt painting giving them the perfect personal memento to take home.

6) Parent & baby friendly facilities

We understand that holidays are a great time to bond with your kids, but it’s also nice to have some time to yourself.  Our family hotel offers a crèche and soft play room as well as baby listening services so parents can have a date night dinner on their own.

The resort is also fully-equipped and ready for your arrival, with microwave in the restaurant for warming food and baby equipment for hire. All you need to do is ask!

7) Fun and games older children

You’ve come to Cornwall for your family holidays, the sun is shining and the scenery is stunning, yet your teen has barely looked up from their phone, or maybe they’ve uttered the words…I’m bored!  The horror!!

We’ve got plenty to shake things up, from surfing to table tennis and from movie nights to Playstation tournaments.  There’s sure to be something to pique their interest.

Maybe they’re sporty?  They can enjoy rounders, football, tennis, golf, rugby or cricket.  If they’re creative, they can enjoy making t-shirts, pottery, pizzas or cocktails. You’ll find it all at Sands.

8) Free Wi-Fi – everywhere

Despite what you may have heard about the ‘escape’ to Cornwall, we’re very well connected.  There’s free Wi-Fi for all of our resort guests, so whether you’re unwinding by the pool, checking the news over breakfast or streaming movies in your room we’ve got you covered.

9) Friendly staff

The moment you cross our threshold you’re among friends.  With years of experience we know how to make you feel at home and we’re here (and happy) to help.  Everyone knows that holidays with children are not always easy – but with our range of facilities and our fantastic staff we’ll work together to make your  holidays a fond memory that you’ll look back on for years to come.
