This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel. We like it because it is just outside the busy town of Nidri and therefore a bit quieter. The hotel is really lovely, very clean and well run. The owner is a very nice man and he works incredibly hard, practically running the place single handed. The pool... More

This was our first trip to Lefkada and we loved it. The Sands Hotel is at the north end of Nidri, A couple of minutes walk from the town centre. A fairly small, family run hotel with 22 rooms on three floors. It has a good sized pool with a jacuzzi at the shallow end. The hotel is in very... More

We have been to many islands in Greece, but this was the first time in Nidri, we stayed at the sands hotel, it was very clean, maids come in everyday, rooms basic, like anywhere you go in Greece, but good enough for what we wanted, as we ate out everynight. The owner was a really nice bloke (Rakesh) always working,... More

Beautiful island and a very nice hotel to stay in. We ate out in the local restaurants, kalypso being the favourite by far. Just a 2 min walk out the hotel to experience quality Greek food. Lots of beaches to visit on the island also

Booked through Olympic for a 2 week holiday in July with my partner. I found the resort very busy as you would expect and will ensure to book our next holiday earlier or later in the season. The hotel is as at the top end of the resort which was a blessing as the main drag was heaving. The hotel... More

In these turbulent economic times we decided to take a chance on Greece for our family holiday and support the Greek people who have warmly welcomed us to their idyllic isles over many of the past 25 years. Despite dire (UK based) warnings of atm queues, food shortages and muggers lurking on street corners I am pleased to say we... More

The rooms come with air con, are a decent size and cleaned daily with fresh towels each day. Great pool and jacuzzi, with plenty of loungers and umbrellas to go around. Hotel is owned by... More
