Me and my other half booked on Wednesday afternoon and flew out Thursday. We arrived on Thursday afternoon. We got to the hotel and our room hadn't been cleaned because they didn't have us down. Understandable, we put our stuff in the room and chilled out by the pool. Within an hour it was done. Room was basic but clean.... More

Lovely staff, Leardis is a really good host and the hotel is very clean and nice. always had clean sheets and towels done for us every day and the food / drink selection was great. the location is also a winner being just off the main strip to get a good nights sleep but not far enough way that you...

Just got back from our holiday to Nidri. Tony the Rep was often on hand at the hotel for the guests but we did not need his services as we prefer to go out and about and do things ourselves. Sands hotel is run; almost single handed by Laertis. He works extremely hard to provide a great service. He even... More

Sands Hotel? Just right for us ... comfy bed, nice pool, clean, friendly ... our room at the back of the building was nice and quiet, with a shaded terrace for a self-catered breakfast. Choice of lazing around the lovely pool or walking over the road to the beach. Close enough yet far enough away from the "commercial" centre of... More

We were at the Sands Hotel for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's great value for money, bbq is a must, Laertis is a fantastic host and it's in a great location - a couple of minutes from the shops, restaurants and bars but far away enough so you don't hear the noise. Lefkada is a beautiful island and... More

Just got back from a week at The Sands hotel. The hotel itself is a basic Greek hotel. The rooms have air conditioning at a small charge for the week. The room was big and cleaned daily (although the cleaners seemed to take our towels and didn't replace them). There is a kettle, fridge, sink, cutlery, a few plates/bowls and... More

Back again to Nidri, I love it here. Laertis has laid new tiles around the pool and paths, it looks brilliant, he has installed new floor lighting under the pool which looks great. The BBQ was a great night with everyone joining in with the dancing. Looking forward to my next trip.
