We had a super holiday in the Sands Hotel in October. The room was spacious, very clean and had a large balcony with sea views. The hotel is situated two minutes from the beach and a few minutes walk from the main town which offers a large choice of restaurants. Also the food at the hotel is delicious and very...

Lovely clean hotel, Room 208 was lovely and light with great views of the mountains. Very happy young cleaner always a smile on her face. All in all a nice week on a last minute holiday couldn't wish for anything better.

Had a good trip and was complimented by the hotel and the owner Laertis. Some were concerned by bar noise but if that may bother you ask for a room at the back. I believe rooms 200 - 203, 300 - 303 are at the front so could get the most noise. The noise never actually bothered myself. (May be...

Returned Sands again this year and enjoyed the same high standards as last year. Returned again this for another Fortnight Laertis, the owner, had worked very hard this winter doing all the maintenance so everything was in fine order. The maid service was upto last years high standards, the rooms cleaned and bins emptied every day and most days clean...

As always, a warm welcome and a fantastic stay. Perfectly situated for a holiday in Lefkada. Laertis is a fantastic host and runs the hotel efficiently whilst maintaining a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Everywhere spectacularly clean and food great. Don't miss the BBQ!! Location brilliant for accessing all amenities. Thanks Laertis and Natasha. See you next year.

Sands is a lovely well cared for hotel offering self-catering rooms, a pleasant pool/garden environment and a bar with food options. It is spotless throughout largely due to the efforts of a very diligent cleaning lady. However self-catering facilities are poor even by greek standards. A tired old fridge and mismatched crockery and utensils made preparation of even the most...

Just returned from another great holiday in Nidri. The Sands hotel is perfectly situated at the end of the strip so close enough to walk down to the bars and restaurants and still far enough away to be peaceful. Opposite the shingle beach which is waiter service. Laertis could not work harder, nothing is too much trouble for him. Make...

We have just returned from a two week holiday with Olympic holidays staying at the Sands Hotel. The Sands is located just off the main road through Nidri. Don't worry there is a by- pass so the bulk of through traffic uses the road at the back of the village and so road noise isn't a problem. Location is wonderful,...
