Sands Beach Resort
Ranked #9 of 38 Hotels in Costa Teguise
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Overall the hotel was fantastic we are 23 and 20 so for us the entertainment was a bit dated and the bar a bit quiet but that is to be expected out of season.

It is a huge resort with 6 pools to choose from along with a private beach. The thing that stood out for us was how clean and well kept the resort was.

Our apartment was a good size and although we were told it slept 2 it actually slept 6! Our only gripes were that for the price of the accommodation we felt wifi and the cost of the safe should have been included but together were over £40 pounds for the 10 days.

The resort is close to the beach, bars and restaurants (around a 10/15 min walk) and the on-site shop has everything you need for self-catering.

We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend Sands Beach.

Stayed: March 2014, traveled with friends

Thank you for your review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your holidays with us at Sands Beach Resort. The safes cost €2.60 per day and are a digital safe are provided by an outside company. We feel it is a better system than the “key” version as no one has any idea of your own numeric code to get into the safe as you made the code up. We are working on server issues throughout the resort for the wifi. Unfortunately Lanzarote is not well served in terms of internet coverage.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we look forward to seeing you soon again at Sands Beach Resort.

Had a good 2weeks, apartment spacious, bed comfy, could do with up date, service very good, house keepers great, although bedroom smelt a bit like an old museum, had to buy airfreshners, and was not impressed having to pay 50 euros for two weeks internet I could only get in the room and not the bedroom.

We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday the facilities of your apartment with us. If you had problems with your room it is important that you report them to us. We ask that anyone who has issues with the hotel report them to us here as afterwards affords us no opportunity to sort things out while you are here. The issue of our servers is currently being sorted out but unfortunately Wifi is very slow in Lanzarote. We thank you for your review and hope we will see you again at Sands Beach Resort.

Booked a stay at this resort to celebrate my 26th birthday with some close friends and got more than I could of hoped. The resort itself is beautiful with everything you need close by. With breath taking views all around and amazing apartments if your looking for a lovely family friendly resort with lots of fun things to do in a great location this is the one for you. The staff are incredibly friendly and for any excursions you may want to go on during your stay e.g. Camel riding.. Rosemary is always close by to help you book and give you more information on what's happening around the Island. A great time is guaranteed choosing this resort

We will pass your comments to Rosemary. She is at her desk in reception every day from 09.00-15.00. She has information on the resort, the hotel, and excursions. She has maps of the island and resort. She has discount cards for shops and a card for a free bottle of wine in one of the best restaurants in Costa Teguise.

This Hotel is simply outstanding if you enjoy tranquility, peace and quiet and SUPERB accomodation. The Hotel itself is only a ten minute walk from an abundance of Bars and Restaurants but has the beautiful advantage of having a private Lagoon.
The Staff and quality of food at Breakfast are second to none

JUST GO!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a beach front - well worth it

We'll the title says it all ..traveled with jet2 hols to sands beach resort ..the check in was not long at all as some reviews state ..you do expect to wait if there is a bus load of people arriving. The accommodation was 1st class we stayed in plaza palmeras (10) we got the sun all day which we requested ....the villa had a little wear and tear which you can expect with the amount of people that travel through..it was spotless and the maids were very friendly and helpful. ...we didn't eat at the restaurants in the complex as we enjoyed the stroll into the centre of costa tequise every eve which took about 15 mins .
We tried a different restaurant every night and found it was very reasonable to eat out ...and most of all the cocktails where fantastic at David's cocktail bar in the square
We where lucky to experience the carnival on sat it was unbelievable what a night :-)
All I can say is take reviews lightly as this is a great place to stay and will be booking again for October
We'll done sands beach resort.

Like a lot of Hotels/Resorts in the area it has a swanky reception area.

There are 7 distinct areas where the accommodation is located all either around a beach or pool area.

We stopped in a privately rented apartment/villa therefore can not comment on the standard of the Sands Beach accommodation, it all looks similar, ours was good, though a little tired.

We ate in the restaurant one night as we found it a little confusing as we were Self Catering and the restaurant obviously set up for half board, it was late as we had only just arrived, so perhaps the waiters were getting a Little fed up, they were not as welcoming as we would have liked.

Did not try the Mai Tai as it had very strange opening hours, we never found it open when we wanted it.

The only other issue is the distance into the centre of Costa Teguise and the walk back at night.

I hope this has not come across as negative Sands Beach is a good resort.

Room Tip: The majority of the apartments/villas are on 3 sides of a pool, so some get early morning sun some l...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed our hotel. We must point out that you were not a guest of our hotel and therefore not in one of our apartments. As a guest of the owner you are not entitled to use some of the free facilities of the hotel. It is completely illegal to have private lettings at Sands Beach Resort.
Thank you for your review.

Stayed here on the first week of March. We were contacted the day before departure to say the hotel had overbooked and our first night would be spent elsewhere. It was a bit frustrating but we got over it. We arrived on a Friday so it meant we had to check out on the Sat morning by twelve and didn't get our room in the Sands then until 3. We walked around the town for those few hours and had a bite to eat. For the inconvenience they upgraded our room, gave us half board for two nights and a bottle of wine which we were happy with.

We stayed in the Plaza Del Sol. Great area, got the sun all day. If you are a couple travelling without kids, as we were, you might not like it. The kids playground is in this area. It didn't bother us at all as there were very few kids there at that time of the year but if you are looking for peace and quiet request a different area.

We had a duplex type apartment. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms. Very spacious, good showers and sink areas. Apartments are a little dated but spotlessly clean, no complaints. House keeping was great.

As I said we got two days half board free, breakfast was great, dinner I wouldn't have been happy with if I had paid for it. Might just be a personal choice but dinner buffet isn't my thing. Food was mass produced but ok. Waiting staff were great at all times.

Overall, would stay here again. Great hotel, short distance from the town, staff very helpful and bars, onsite supermarket etc. were all good.
