Family holidays by the sea are where dreams are made!
At the Sandbanks Hotel you couldn’t get closer to the beach – it’s only a few steps from our terrace. And not just any beach… 7 miles of Blue Flag award-winning golden sands greeted with clear blue sea.
Perfect for the kids to enjoy and Mum and Dad to relax!
For children the beach is possibly the greatest playground from building sandcastles, digging holes, collecting sea shells or just splashing and playing in the surf.
For older children the beach is a complete escape from routine and a true reminder of what nature really has to offer.
With the fresh sea air in their lungs you’ll be surprised to see your teenager with a new lust for life! Running around happily playing beach games, posing for fun seaside pictures, reading books and merrily chatting whilst watching the sea gently lap at their toes.
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.
