If you want to relax Sands is the place. I have been going there for many years and have always had a great holiday.Set in Nidri which is the perfect size for a resort.small enough that you will soon find your favourite taverna, but big enough to give you plenty of choice. Sands is a very well run hotel with... More

Nice small friendly hotel with amazing owner. Nothing was too much trouble. Immaculate hotel. Great Breakfast and food. Beach was just across the road and the choice of local Restaurants was great. Lots of nice personal little touches.

I have just spent another week at this excellent hotel, and again I wasn't disappointed. The location is superb, just over the road from the beach and only a few minutes walk into town. As it is out of town it is quiet enough to ensure a snooze by the pool and a good night's sleep, but close enough for... More

Well run family hotel maintained to an excellent standard. The weekly barbecue run by the hotel was excellent with professional dancers and food was excellent.Hotel has a pool with jacuzzi and is a reasonable size to enable long distance swims.The views from the hotel seawards and inland are very pretty.

Our 3rd visit and absolute peace and relaxation yet again. Quiet pool, plenty sunbeds in a quiet location. Rooms cleaned every day. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. English breakfast is fabulous or if not that hungry a top quality sausage & egg sarnie is highly recommended

With just 22 rooms in the Sands feels very personal, close to the beach on the edge of the resort, making it quite peaceful at night. It was comfortable to move about in and were always made welcome by the staff. During our 14 night stay the bedclothes and towels were changed several times and beds properly made up every... More

Everything we look for in a Greek holiday hotel Laertis even took our cases up to the room and back and the end of a superb fortnight. Situated in our favourite Greek location we have visited 4 times already and hope to return next year. The beach is a few minutes if you can be bothered to drag yourself away... More

We have been to The Sands before and will come again. The hotel is super and Laertis and his wife Nastasia are friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and the food is good. The island is beautiful and varied, we explore it on a hired scooter from Spiros at Moto Center. It's the perfect holiday.
