I have just been back to the Sands hotel and enjoyed it every bit as much as last year. The crazy paving around the pool area has been replaced with non slip tiling which looks like decking and it looks stunning. Laertis has once again made it a holiday to remember, he works so hard and can't do enough for... More

We just returned from our special holiday at The Sands Hotel in Nidri. It was perfect! The location was right across from the beach, about 20 m, and a short walk from tavernas. The rooms are the traditional Greek rooms, spotlessly clean and made everyday, with comfortably beds. There was a pool bar and jacuzzi, just what you need after... More

Really enjoyed our stay here and would return. At the quieter end of town with the beach and tavernas on the doorstep for a quiet relaxed time.

The Sands Hotel is owned by a lovely couple who are very hospitable, helpful and friendly. It's a small, clean simple hotel with a lot to offer.

Lefkada has been our best holiday yet, it is a lovely little island with beautiful views and a lovely beach. The Sands hotel was basic but just what we needed on a self catering basis. The pool area is small but there was always a sunbed available. The restaurants along the front were all lovely, the Italian on the harbour... More
