I have just been back to the Sands hotel and enjoyed it every bit as much as last year. The crazy paving around the pool area has been replaced with non slip tiling which looks like decking and it looks stunning. Laertis has once again made it a holiday to remember, he works so hard and can't do enough for... More

We just returned from our special holiday at The Sands Hotel in Nidri. It was perfect! The location was right across from the beach, about 20 m, and a short walk from tavernas. The rooms are the traditional Greek rooms, spotlessly clean and made everyday, with comfortably beds. There was a pool bar and jacuzzi, just what you need after... More

Really enjoyed our stay here and would return. At the quieter end of town with the beach and tavernas on the doorstep for a quiet relaxed time. If you want to be busier then it is a short stroll in to town and the port where there are endless of really good tavernas, cocktail bars and people watching opportunities. Good... More

The Sands Hotel is owned by a lovely couple who are very hospitable, helpful and friendly. It's a small, clean simple hotel with a lot to offer. The location is great at the quite end of the resort but right opposite the beach. It's just a short walk into the centre with lots of great restaurants and bars. Laertis, the... More

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
