Thanks to covid I was not able to visit my favourite hotel on Gran Canaria at all during 2020. I have been visiting this hotel for 12 years and normally staying 3 things a year. Some things have changed, Ursula is no longer the manageress ( or mother of the hotel as I would describe her ) but her absence is more than made up for by Ms Eva Karg. The hotel was unusually quiet for the one of year but given the COVID situation it is hardly surprising. I was there for New Year and seemed to be the only Scottish person there I only decide to visit a couple of days before I arrived. As usual the reservations department handled my queries and organised my transfers with aplomb. Romanas many have described are pretty standard all over the hotel. My preference is for a higher floor room and as ever this request was met. The food is very very good and I am please dot say that the smoking part of the outdoor dining area has been done with away with making the whole area non smoking and a much more pleasant t experience. COVID has sadly meant the closing of the indoor Bar Salon but it was lovely to se Paco from that bar out in the dining area. Staff as ever all lovely, Fatima, Leticia, Paco and Paco number two. New man Cheng are all wonderful and are the main reason for my return to this hotel time after time. The clientele is 85% German I would say but do not let this be a deterrent, learn a few words of German and Spanish if you have to and you will go a long way to having a great time. I will be back in April.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your being part of our Sandy Beach family. It is always a huge pleasure to welcome you back to your home in Playa del Inglés. Fatima, Leticia, both Pacos and Cheng, as well as the rest of the staff were delighted that they are the main reason you return again and again. Our team really is the heart and soul of our Sandy Beach. I am very pleased to read that we could also pamper you once again with our culinary offer. It was a privilege being your hosts and we can’t wait to see you again in April. Many warm regards, Eva Karg, Deputy Manager Seaside Sandy Beach****

I last came to the Sandy Beach in December 2014 and returned here as this hotel was one of the choices offered by a British Airways package holiday. I came to the island on an extended stay and stayed in a number of hotels, the Sandy beach being the first. It was interesting to compare the different hotels and I think overall the Sandy Beach was my favourite and I would certainly consider a return visit. I received a friendly welcome - and given a mask! My room was on the same floor as the Reception. It is a little dated and I was disappointed that it didn't get much sun, shaded by palm trees. I overlooked the restaurant. If I come again I will pay extra for a higher room for the sunshine. There was a complimentary bottle of water and a bottle of wine. There was a generous supply of toiletries. Despite the clientele being 99% German (or so it seemed) the TV channels included the BBC and other English speaking channels. There is a kettle but you have to order supplies of coffee, etc. Use of the safe has to be paid for. Powerful shower. I enjoyd the food but it could have been hotter (a general observation which applies to many hotels). I sat in the outside area of the restaurant, but felt slightly uncomfortable in these Covid times of being so close together. However, being outside, it was well ventilated. I could have sat indoors well away from anyone else had I so wished. The sauna and steam room were in use, with a maximum capacity of four in the sauna and two in the steam room. The hotel is conveniently placed for the beach which is about ten minutes walk down a slope. The Yumbo - should you wish to visit it as it isn't to everyone's taste - is also about ten minutes walk away.

Dear Sandy Beach guest, Thank you for your having chosen our Sandy Beach for the second time. I am pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay and highlighted our culinary offer, as well as our convenient location close to the beach. I also would like to thank you for your constructive feedback, as it helps improve and further adapt our services to our guests needs. I have taken note of your comment that the food wasn’t always hot enough. The food at the hot buffets is kept at the prescribed temperature of at least 63 degrees Celsius and, in addition, our chefs make a quality check before we open the buffet. I will definitely review your feedback with the restaurant team to see if we need to take further action. Again, thank you for your stay. It was a pleasure having you and we hope to welcome you back again someday soon. Many seasons’ greetings and our best wishes for the New Year, Eva Karg, Deputy Manager Seaside Sandy Beach****

Have just returned from 11 days half board at sandy beach, we were very happy with our room overlooking the pool area. The room is huge in comparison with many hotel rooms, a plus is the big glass fronted balcony. The breakfast was particularly good we thought, the evening meal was not quiet as nice ,but still pretty good. The hotel is lovely and clean and the staff on the ball. All in all a very pleasant stay. Ron and Eileen Jones.

Dear Ron and Eileen, Thank you for your wonderful feedback and for having chosen the Seaside Sandy Beach. It is great to read that you very much enjoyed your 11 day stay and that you especially liked the view from your room, as well as our breakfast. Our gastronomy is certainly one of our major strengths and we usually receive very positive feedback in this regard; thus, we would appreciate to know what exactly you did not like about our dinner. We offer different themed dinners and live cooking stations, as well as a selection of homemade desserts. Also, I wish to thank you for praising our friendly service and spotless facilities. We hope that you keep fond memories and that we can welcome you back sometime soon. All the best, Eva Karg, Subdirector Seaside Sandy Beach****

Our 5th time here and we loved our 10 days all inclusive holiday. The staff are lovely and they give the best service anywhere! A new young lad called Cheng was very hardworking and eager to please. Many of the staff have been working here for years so that is a good sign of a decent hotel. Lovely warm pool with great bar providing top drinks. Please can you change the music tape we got very bored with it after 10 days! My only complaint is the food labels for the allergy alerts is still poor. I am coeliac and need gluten free. Every time I come here I mention it to them and they seem very indifferent to the problem. I have to work things out for myself. The variety and standard of food is great though. A gluten free corner for some deserts would be brilliant I can only eat fruit which seems a bit mean when I pay the same amount of money as everyone else to go there. Our room was 806 which was very clean and comfortable. Many thanks seaside sandy beach.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday on a half board basis. We found the staff and food to be excellent at this hotel. We booked a junior suite room 602 also very good. A previous reviewer complained about road noise. We found this to be of little problem. We heard road noise until around 11pm then all was quiet until 7am. Our main problem was with the lack of good view and the strong winds when walking along the open corridors to access the main body of the hotel. To be fair to the hotel we were aware that junior suites had street views. We booked this hotel as we had been many times to Seaside Los Jameos Playa Hotel in Lanzarote, part of the same chain, and one which we really rate. Although run on the same lines we still feel this hotel is not quite as good, basically because of the lack of an indoor bar. We found sitting outdoors at the only bar, the pool bar to be too cold to be pleasant in November. However in warmer days I am sure it will be excellent.

Dear guest, Thank you so much for having shared your holiday experiences with us and for your stay at the Seaside Sandy Beach. We are thrilled to read that you found our staff and food to be excellent. We take great pride in the service and food we prepare for our guests so again your kind words are truly appreciated by all of the team at the hotel. Referring our rooms, it is true that our Junior Suites have street views. Please be informed that upon availability we may offer our guests a room change if their initial room does not meet their entire expectations. On the other hand, I wish to inform you that we do have an indoor bar, our Bar Salon, right next to our restaurant, but due to covid restrictions guests are not allowed to go inside yet. However, this is meant to change very soon, so hopefully our guests will be able to enjoy a drink or two inside our Bar Salon. Thank you again for your vacation at the Seaside Sandy Beach**** and for the evaluation, we appreciate it. Sunny greetings from Gran Canaria, Eva Karg, Subdirector Seaside Sandy Beach****
