Read our review of Sands Resort, Hotel & Spa, Porth

Sands Resort Hotel & Spa is perched on picturesque clifftops overlooking the sea on the edge of Porth, near Newquay. This family-run resort is geared up for guests of all ages with a variety of spacious rooms and suites and plenty of diversions on and off site.

There is a wide choice of accommodation, from contemporary, sea view doubles for couples or spa weekenders to roomy suites, apartments and interconnecting rooms for families of up to 7. And it’s not just the rooms that make Sands Resort an incredibly easy and relaxing place to have a holiday with children. Sands Resort staff are incredibly friendly and really go the extra mile, understanding the challenges of a family holiday with kids in tow.

Older children can wear themselves out in the indoor and outdoor pools, mini golf and tennis courts, while littlies will love the playgrounds, enchanted maze, indoor fairground games and soft play. If your children are very little, usually carriers, buggies, bottle warmers and sterilisers are all available for hire free of charge, which super handy if you’re flying into nearby Newquay airport.

Sands’ Beachcomber restaurant serves a  mix of modern Mediterranean-inspired dishes and classic British crowd pleasers starring locally sourced produce – not to mention a very hearty Cornish breakfast. Children are more than welcome in the hotel restaurant or you can opt for early family supper and take them to evening kids club, while you enjoy a grown-up dinner for two. There’s also a complimentary baby listening service.

The onsite Ocean Breeze Spa offers an extensive menu of treatments and the hotel also has an indoor and outdoor pool, gym and steam room.

Nearby, Porth beach an easy walk away. It’s very popular with families, with plenty of sand to play on and safe swimming in summer. While the quieter Whipsiderry Beach is also well within walking distance if you don’t mind the steep access.
