Had four days in the lovely Saunton Sands Hotel at the beginning of August with my husand and family. Our sea facing room looked newely decorated and the views of the beach were amazing. The entertainment program was very varied with activities suiting all tastes for those who want to participate. I particularly enjoyed the complementary surf lesson. My husband enjoyed the facilities particularly the squash and tennis courts. Overall another fabulous holiday and cant wait to return for New Years eve celebrations

Room Tip: Request a Sea facing room

We have been returning to Saunton Sands Hotel every year without fail for 15 years and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Our children in that time have grown from babies to teenagers over these years and both they and us love it as much now as when they were younger. The staff and management couldn't be more helpful, they can't do enough for you. Our spacious hotel rooms overlook the awesome views across the Braunton Burrows, beach and out to Hartland Point and Lundy Island, a view that can compete with any holiday destination around the world. Thanks to its micro climate quiet often we are spoilt to glorious sun whilst all around you can see others experiencing more traditional English weather! The dining experience is wonderful- the chef provides a delightful menu to choose from, sourced from local produce, which is beautifully presented. We also stay at the hotel to celebrate New Years Eve- a fantastic way to bring in the new year. Just writing this review puts a smile on my face- we have so many wonderful memories here. Rain or shine, you will have a lovely stay here.

The hotel is in a stunning location overlooking the beach. The room and en suite were a little tired but the views more than make up for it. The biggest surprise however was the quality of the food in the restaurant, which was excellent. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The prices are quite high - but recommended for a short break away.

We were treated to a weekend away and we were not disapointed. This hotel is great in every way. We had a family room with views over the back of the hotel. The food is amazing! Great great great. The kids had fun and it was warm and friendly. No fault I could find

We've stayed at this hotel as a couple for romantic breaks and now as a family and it continues to make us smile. From the perfect views from our sea-facing room, restaurant and lounge to the 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude of all the staff. It's a great combination of luxury and a perfect family destination. Can't wait too book our next trip.

Room Tip: Worth the extra to wake up to a sea view
