Sands Hotel has basic, typicaly greek accomodation. Nice position you dont want to be in the centre its too noisy, nice bar, lovely pool which is cleaned by the owner. We stayed for 2 wks in Sep 2011. The weather was brilliant with the exception of one day when there was a storm. The rooms at the right (looking at the hotel) overlooking the mountains are probably the best as the road at the front can be noisy. There is a nightclub across the rd at the front that can be noisy if you stay at the front. However we discovered that these rooms are given to people who had been going for many many years zzzzzzzzz The rooms are allocated according to when you book. Late deals get the rooms without a view when the hotel is full. So if its your first time you wont get the sea views at the front. The rooms on the left have no views. The rooms have a bed 2 kitchen cuboards with 2 rings for cooking 1 frying pan 1 pan enough crockery & utensils. The shower is a square in the corner of the small bathroom with a curtain. Some rooms have shared balconies or a very small private balcony. The rooms are kept clean with plenty of toilet paper.The towels & sheets are changed twice a week. The towels are are well worn and very hard and rough. The tues BBQ cost £18 and you get the choice of one piece of meat. the rest is all you can eat. A good opportunity to try lots of greek starters. Then there are shots afterwards and the owner does the greek dancing, he is not a happy chap if you don't drink or eat in the bar. There are much nicer hotels in Nidri. I don't know what all the fuss is about. I only booked the Sands because I got a very cheap deal.
