We’re sure you’ll agree that when it comes to family holidays, it’s best to keep everybody happy. Mum, Dad, teenagers, toddlers and everyone in between all need their own piece of holiday heaven.
That’s why we have developed a luxury four-star hotel right on the beach, focused on family facilities, exciting Kid’s programmes and heavenly hideaway spots for parents!
Little details are carefully considered to keep everyone happy and entertained from our Children’s menus in the Seaview Restaurant to goodie bags* upon arrival in your room.
*For children age 3 years and above as some items not suitable for under 3 years.
Throughout the main *school holidays, our wacky team of entertainers have a full programme of activities designed for younger guests.
The Funsters Team, including Captain Swash and Betty Buckle are a professional cast of actors, entertainers, dancers and singers. All with full DBS checks (previously CRB checks) running fun frolics day and night.
*Please check entertainment dates to avoid disappointment.
Open all day, everyday during school holidays with an exciting programme of high energy games, beach bonanzas, creative play and talent shows. Perfect for children over the age of 4 to keep them active, happy and safe!
And for big kids, our Teen Zone is a great place to ‘hang-out’. With a cool range of afternoon and evening activities specifically designed for teenagers. It’s a great place to make new friends, have fun and try something new.
The Sandbanks Hotel is a great hotel for families. The kids club is great. My kids could not be happier and more entertained. I could not believe how many activities are
running for them.
Luxury with terrific entertainment for the children. Don't go anywhere else in Bournemouth/Poole with children. All day they are looked after with beach sports, games, drama, music and fun. Meanwhile laze at bbq bar.
Fantastic experience! Our 7 year old Son had a fantastic time with the FUNSTERS team. I've never stayed in a hotel where children are so well catered for.
I was so impressed by the quality of the children's entertainment team, they were so warm and friendly and full of enthusiasm, had a great rapport with children of all ages, handled them really well, and were very professional too.
