Lovely, friendly, family run hotel, it amazed me how hard they all worked! they printed out our return boarding passes for ryanair too, which saved us a huge hassle and a lot of money! The best bit for me was the food, fresh and lots of choice and as a veggie there was always something yummy for me to devour,... More

This hotel has a few teething problems which none are massive. Our room was a standard. The room was clean and tidy but very basic, ideal if you are not wanting luxury. All inclusive food and drink. Food was ok again if your not wanting luxury and alcohol was served at the beach bar which included lager, wine, and Raki... More

Amazing value for money. Myself and my partner spent an amazing 10 nights here and wished it was longer! The staff are super friendly and make you feel at home. The food is tasty- I don't understand why people travel and complain that the food is local cuisine. Antigone was of great help and Yaanis and his wife are lovely... More

It was our first holidays in Greece. Location of this hotel helps to forget about the noise of big city and provides relaxing time. Main advantages of "Sandy Beach Hotel" are: 1. clean sandy beach with a gentle entrance into the sea; 2. friendly personnel and calm atmosphere; 3. all dishes were delicious, especially "Greece Salad"

This was our first all-inclusive holiday and we didn't know quite what to expect. We were delighted to find a friendly, relaxed hotel with real Greek food! Not a chip in sight! Our room was clean on arrival and cleaned thoroughly every day and had a great view of the garden. This part of the coast is built up and... More

The Sandy Beach Hotel has the most kind, friendly and helpful staff. Particularly Antigoni, who is a wonderful person with superb qualities. Her friendliness, competence and general helpfulness was second to none. If you require any information regarding your stay, do not hesitate to approach Antigoni as she is very obliging and her English is excellent. We found that any... More
