Beautiful hotel on the edge of town, two minutes from the beach and the hotelier laertis is brilliant! He made it one of the best holidays I've ever had and his barbecue is amazing, and that man can make a mean mojito! Thankyou laertis, Joe and Chloe (and brian)

If you are looking for clean, comfortable accommodation in a good location with an excellent pool, Sands is right up there with the best. The owner, Laertis, is one of the most hardworking people we've ever had the pleasure to meet and his self deprecating comparison to Basil Fawlty is wide of the mark! Do support this delightful, small hotel... More

Well what to say about this magical place to do it justice... Laertis is a most excellent host. We saw him working from early morning right through to the early hours of the next morning and yet he was always cheerful, smiling and helpful. He shared local knowledge, helped us book taxis to little known tavernas off the beaten track... More

Really good hotel in an excellent location. Laertis the owner cannot do enough to make sure that you have a good holiday - he hosts a fantastic BBQ night as well as sharing his local knowledge. Nidri and its surrounding area is very pretty - a walk up the hill behind the hotel is well worth the effort for the... More

So Clean and friendly the owner works hard with his family ,Rooms are basic but all you need for a base he makes a lovely English breakfast. Rooms over pool can be noise as this is where the bar is so if your not up for a bit of fun ask for one at the back

Great little hotel with good atmosphere and really nice staff. Leartis the owner seemed to be constantly on the go, serving people food and drinks yet at the same time making sure the pool area was clean and inviting. Definitely recommend his BBQ night on Tuesdays

Great location, friendly atmosphere, perfect size pool and all areas kept clean. The main star of the place is the owner who works tirelessly to make sure your having a good time. Bbq night was great fun and entertaining. Food was good especially omelettes. Would recommend and we will be back.
