used the sands hotel for evening meals and was bowled over by quality of the food and the cost was amazingly low at 11euros pp for just dinner with dishes like rack of ribs and the most amazing fresh fish I've ever eaten in my life.

We didn't stay at the Sands but I wish we had, I can't review the hotel but having eaten there twice I can say that the food is wonderful. Very reasonably priced and something to suit everyone. The staff are very welcoming and we had a wonderful night of music and entertainment on New Years Eve. Staff and customers made... More
