Blue Sand has such an amazing location, perched on a hillside overlooking beautiful Agali Bay. When our ferry was over 8 hours late due to the wind, we were still met with smiles at the port and whisked away to the hotel. This hotel is really new, and is definitely one of the nicest places on Folegandros, at very reasonable rates. The breakfast is both delicious and abundant, with any type of coffee or other beverages, huge baskets of breads and cakes, plus your choice of yogurt with fruit and honey, toasted sandwich with ham and cheese...however I always asked for a single boiled egg and it came in the cutest little cup with coordinating salt and pepper shakers (see photo). They made the BEST Nescafe Frappes we had anywhere in Greece.
The beach gets busy with bussed in visitors from Hora, but by the time the first bus load appeared, we were already set up on the beach with our Blue Sand-provided umbrellas and beach chairs - a great service since none of the beaches have organized sunbeds and umbrellas.
We were a family of four, traveling with 2 children (8 and 10). Unfortunately, the largest room they have is a triple, so they put an extra bed in it, and we could barely move around in our room. There also wasn't enough space for all four of us to unpack our suitcases. I don't think the size of the rooms are as well suited to families as they could be. One bigger room would be really nice for them to add. We were traveling with a family of 3 (one child) and their triple room was the perfect size for them.
The shower has great water flow and pressure, we loved it! Also, we spent lots of time on the balcony enjoying the view with great wine from the hotel bar. They just had their wireless internet installed when we arrived, so that was very useful as well.
The restaurant just above the Blue Sand called Pasithea is delicious! I had the most amazing grilled octopus there!
