We come to Nydri every year and have stayed at most places and I would say that whilst the Sands isn't the best it offers good value. It is in a great location for the beach although a 15 min walk from the main harbour, although, we welcomed this after our evening meal as we always over indulged. The rooms... More

We have recently returned from Nidri and the Sands through Olympic. In previous years we stayed elsewhere and used the pool and got lunch and drinks here but this year we stayed. The hotel is spotless and the beds very comfortable. Our room had fantastic views of the green mountains and Nidri is great also with so many places to... More

Just returned from the lovely sands hotel. This hotel is excellent and has a lot of charm. The rooms are simple, comfortable and very clean. All rooms have a balcony with super views to the front and the back. Air conditioning is great and needed in the summer. The shuttered doors are great for blocking out noise and we had... More

We visited Nidri and stayed at Sands hotel for the third time over the last 4 years with our two children 7 and 11 years old. Once again we had a great relaxing experience. Most of the people at the hotel we spoke to seemed to be returning customers which says a lot about the place. Its a small hotel... More

Me & my friend stayed here for a week at the beginning of July, Not much positive things to say really. There are long corridors on each floor so everything echo's and sound twice as noisy so when someone closes the door it bangs! It didn't help as there was a family of about 12 with young children who took... More

We booked a last minute trip using Olympic as normal but this accommodation was a lot better than most we have had with them. I even e:mailed the owner in advance to try to get a room with a view and was not disappointed when we were given 202 a room overlooking the pool. The hotel and rooms were small... More

What a lovely quiet hotel Situated just on the edge of nidri so ideal for a peaceful holiday with the beach just across the road. The hotel was kept spotless and the cleaners did a fantastic job. We used the pool a few times but also spent quite a lot of times at the beach as it was so close.... More

Just got back from Lefkada. What a lovely surprise it was to find such a beautiful scenic island. I did not realise how green the island is, fauna and flora eveywhere. Nidri was an excellent choice for our resort. Good to see that there are no 'M' big macs, no fish & chips, no KFC's or subways etc. Just lots... More

We were very please with this hotel which was in the perfect position in Nidri for us, very close to the beach and close enough to the centre with a little walk to work up an appetite for the bars and restaurants. The rooms are basic but very clean and the hotel, pool and grounds were in good condition complimented... More
