I have stayed in many hotels all over the world, (quite a few of them before the advent of Trip advisor), but of them all the Sands is one of my favourite favourites.
Perfectly situated on a rise looking over the bay, "a stones throw from the ocean" has never been truer. you can hear the ocean rolling from your bed and smell the crisp sea air. Yet you can walk to the village with out breaking a sweat.
There were times when we did wonder if it was staffed by fairies as everything appeared effortless. Though at the same time GM Heidi and her staff clearly were putting in every effort to make our stay as fantastic as possible with the chef customising our dinner menu's. All in all it was as close to perfection as any hotel stay could get.
