The Sands hotel enjoys a great location with amazing views from every room. The pool area, probably recently updated, is very impressive with a large infinity pool and 28 degrees water temperature. The breakfast and dinner are suprisingly good offering a good choice of high quality food from a buffet. We were however disappointed by the 500-600% markup on poor quality wine by glass and lack of choice. Suffice to say we ordered once and not again. The staff was overall friendly but at times we felt we were being told where to sit for dinner rather than being treated as guests. The hotel offers many leisure activities for free but if you want to rent bicycles these are at charge. Water skiing was not possible due the weather every day for a week. One starts to wonder if this was really due to weather or rather due to cost reduction ( waterskiing was free). The room is average size and we had one on the ground floor which was convenient (no stairs) but less privacy (other guests can look inside). The bathrooms are outdated and could do with a renovation. On the other hand one gets both bathtub and shower as well as a large dressing room. The Sands is a very pleasant hotel in a very good location and spectacular views. It could become fantastic if they updated the rooms, bathrooms, trained their staff in courtesy and improve wine pricing and selection.
