just home from sands beach,.Really short transfer from airport,which is great when you have small kids.checkin a little slow,could maybe do with additional help at such times?
The good news- staff were exceptional,they really put alot of effort into the halloween theme.
They work really hard!!! Food in restaurant was extreemly good,we were half board and i would strongly recommend taking advantage of this option.
lots of activities included in cost of stay,swimming lessons,yoga etc...
Apartment wasnt overly clean on arrival (c69)
if going again (which i will) i would opt for almeria 2 bed apt west facing.
A very good experience for all of our family.

Room Tip: best to get an apt with 2 bedrooms if traveling as a family of 4 otherwise u have to usw a fold up...

The hotel is all low level and spacious, it has a very relaxing feel and is spotless. It is a little on the edge of costa teguise. The staff are all excellent. I cannot rate the kids club highly enough, buddys club, it is free and runs daily, they also put on a childrens disco at 8.15 pm every night - guided dancing with a clown, its in the bar so parents watch and have a laugh. Afterwards there is a family show, we saw a magic show a reptile show and a bird show, all very interactive, a little late for our taste but that is Spanish culture. There were no teenagers! so my 14 yr old was out on a limb, luckily he was at surf school - try surf school lanzarote. I am a single mum and was the only single person, the hotel suits and is full of families with children under 7 and retired couples, people from all over europe. I chose it because of the high spec of the rooms which are (superior) actually full apartments but the resort is a more windy one than the ones further south, you notice this more if the weather is poor.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted your family enjoyed your holiday with us. We normally have a teenagers club in Summer but due to the way the midterm breaks fall in October with different parts of the UK and Ireland having the breaks at different times there were never enough teenagers to have a teenagers club at this particular break.
At Sands Beach Resort we have every configuration of family so do not feel left out as a single Mum there are lots of single Mums and Dads too.
We are so pleased you and your children enjoyed your holidays with us and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

I am writing this review as i am sat in my appartment.
This is truly one of the nicest places i have been to, the resort is beautiful, very well maintained and very clean, the pool is yards from your front door but is also quiet.
The staff are really friendly, nothing is too much trouble, booked a trip with rosemary who was really helpful, the reception staff are great. The restaurant is really well run and the food is amazing. Could not find anything negative to say and would definately return and also recommend to family and friends.

1st time at Sands but 5 th time to Lanzarote. Great apartments with everything you need. If self catering take a tea towel and some dishwasher tablets as none provided. Not that I did a lot in the kitchen but if that's what you like to do with a full oven etc you could eat in every night! Great for kids, it was half term so a lot of children but that's what you would expect. Cleaners and all staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Evening entertainment not too my taste but try it you may like it!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the right hand side for sunnier evenings.

This was our second visit to this hotel with my husband and two kids age 12 and 9. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. The entertainment in the hotel for Halloween was great and the kids had a ball in the pool. This hotel has it all pool, beach, restful and near enough to the town and waterfront. Would strongly recommend for families.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room.

Just had a fantastic 2 week holiday at sands beach. We checked in late to a very warm welcome by reception, and help to the apartment. We had a one bedroomed apartment beach front, it was fantastic, well equipped with microwave, washer and utensils.

I liked the way the apartment was set out it gave privacy and living space alike, the bed was a tad uncomfortable but nothing suits like your own!

Great maid service, came each day and nothing was too much trouble. The view from the apartment was lovely, nice to sit out on the private terrace onto the lagoon.

Children joined in with Buddy's Club, they loved it each day different activities and mini disco with pyjama party each night. The entertainment were brilliant Pepe was a firm favourite of my son, he had a great way with the children and very much got them involved and made them feel welcome.

Debbie and the girls also made great efforts to encourage and keep the children involved.
I took advantage of the sports facilities each day running with the ever entertaining Tana, a great fitness coach and guide.

My kids were fortunate to celebrate Halloween at sands what a great day fun filled with all kids of crafting and creating, trick or treat and a show put on by the staff, which was excellent and a great amount of hard work out into it. Debbie made a great show at the disco.

Supermarket on site is open till 12am, and is well stocked, a little bit more expensive than the express Dino.

Great on site play areas that are immaculate and well maintained.
Bars on site are good, again the staff can't do enough for you.

Entertainment was ok, some of the acts were dated but the magic show was brilliant for the kids!
All in all a fantastic holiday at sands, the staff made our stay excellent and were so helpful, friendly and accommodating I cannot wait till we can return.


Thank you sands beach xxx

Room Tip: Pay the extra for beach front

I booked this holiday for my husband and I. My son and his family and my daughter and her family. Was a bit disappointed when we arrived as I had booked 3 rooms and they had only 2 available. They proceeded to tell me that they had put 2 families in a 2 bedroom apartment and my husband and I in a one bedroom. They male receptionist wasn't very helpful but we agreed to sort it out in the morning with the manager. Monica the manager was the complete opposite, she was very helpful. She offered to compensate my party of 8 by upgrading us to bed & breakfast for the whole week. Also no charge for the baby walker and a reduced rate late check out room. We had a wonderful stay yet again. The hotel is clean and the staff are wonderful and the food is very nice. Nearly every room looks out onto the pool. We will visiting again in June for 6th visit. Can't wait. Thank you again Monica.x.
