Lefkada has been our best holiday yet, it is a lovely little island with beautiful views and a lovely beach. The Sands hotel was basic but just what we needed on a self catering basis. The pool area is small but there was always a sunbed available. The restaurants along the front were all lovely, the Italian on the harbour... More

Very conveniently located at the quieter end of the resort. Very good basic rooms although self catering facilities were limited. It's just across the road from the beach and a short walk to the Main Street of the resort and the harbour where there is a good choice of cafés, bars and restaurants.

We returned to The Sands hotel this August for the second time in 3 years. I would recommend both the hotel and the location to potential newcomers. The Sands is ideally placed in Nidri and suitable for couples and families of all ages. The owners are friendly, very hard working and genuine. Laertes, who owns the hotel, is a very... More

We have holidayed all over Greece on several islands but had never been to Lefkada. We booked the Sands hotel in Nidri as a last minute getaway for £300 each for a week so were prepared for a budget type standard of accommodation to use as a base. How pleasant a suprise it was then to find the Sands Hotel... More

This is a lovely family run hotel, and the host Laertis is very friendly and very welcoming, and nothing is too much trouble. I booked the hotel through Olympic who advertise it as 3 star, but it is actually a 2 star. Although I would rate it as 3 star without hesitation, I am not sure why Olympic display the... More

Just returned from the Sands Hotel after a 2 week stay mid to end September, Laertis and Natasha are very nice hosts, friendly and welcoming. The bed linen & towels were changed every other day (inc Sundays). Although, we thought the cleaners work left something to be desired, maybe it was because we were at the end of the corridor...

You get what you pay for and we were very pleased with what we got. A special thanks to Laertis the hotel owner and his family who could not have worked harder or made our stay any pleasanter. Barbecue night was very good and the food was lovely.
