Imagine your first family holiday, the magical memories that stayed with you forever. For Nicholas Malcolm and Sands Resort Hotel that’s where the story starts and why family is the heart of our story.
“My first holidays in the 1950s were to Newquay, then at the age of five we moved from Yorkshire in to a derelict hotel my parents purchased in Mawgan Porth. 60 years later I am still in the hotel trade and never left Cornwall.”
We’ve come a long way since the 50s, once known Trevelgue Hotel, a hip hangout for RAF pilots and Newquay babes in those crazy knitted bikinis of the era.
We like to think we’re still as hip, but with less beach knit wear.
The 70s saw transformation for the hotel, as Nicholas and his team embarked on their mission, planting the seeds for the award-wining family resort we all know and love today.
Throughout the 80s the resort continued to thrive through leg warmers and bad hair to become not only the first purpose build family resort, but also inventing the concept of kids’ clubs – you are welcome!
By 2000 Sands Resort Hotel was born. As the century changed, so did we! Adapting to technology and family dynamics and welcoming more couples, groups and families to share our wonderful sea views (some things never change) and facilities.
For the past 5 years Sands has been voted on TripAdvisor to be one of the top UK family hotels, so we hope we can offer you the bit of Cornish magic you and your children deserve.
Our purpose-designed family-friendly hotel facilities such as large 2-room family suites, a soft play area, games room, pools and a spa for grown-ups are just the tip of the memories’ iceberg.
A quick step outside the hotel, and as well as our dazzling location, you’ll find tennis, croquet, crazy golf, an outdoor pool with toddler splash area and two playgrounds.
Oh, and did we mention the bouncy castles? How will you fit it all in?!!
