Just returned from another great holiday in Nidri. The Sands hotel is perfectly situated at the end of the strip so close enough to walk down to the bars and restaurants and still far enough away to be peaceful. Opposite the shingle beach which is waiter service. Laertis could not work harder, nothing is too much trouble for him. Make... More

We have just returned from a two week holiday with Olympic holidays staying at the Sands Hotel. The Sands is located just off the main road through Nidri. Don't worry there is a by- pass so the bulk of through traffic uses the road at the back of the village and so road noise isn't a problem. Location is wonderful,... More

We stayed at Sands for 2 weeks in July. It's 10 minutes walk from the busy town centre, so it's on the quieter end of town. Laertis the owner works day and night to keep the hotel in top-top shape. Rooms are simple and clean, all you need really.

Nice hotel, very clean, nice pool area and a lovely view from my balcony. But ask for a room at the back. The bar is at the front of the hotel and loud music plays till midnight every night, It gets turned down then, but carries on till 1pm. With my balcony door shut and ear plugs in, I could... More

I had an amazing time, so good I am coming back later in the year. Laertis is such an amazing host, very friendly, hard working and totally committed to ensuring clients have an enjoyable time. Whilst I was there I had the excellent breakfast on several occasions, far better value than in town. I also went to the BBQ which... More

My wife and I enjoyed two weeks here in August 2016 and had a great time in Nidri. Location couldn't be better, just far enough from the main town and quay to be quiet, but also easy walking distance of the main attractions. I have a feeling we have been spoilt by previous hotels in Greece and elsewhere and whilst... More

I loved my stay here. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Rooms are nice and decent sizes. Food was nice, always a good selection and tasted great. The pool area is one of the best hotel pools I have come across. The entertainment is exceptional especially the bbq night. I would say this is a splendid hotel for... More

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
