Very pleased with the hotel. Very close the the beach and shops. Very welcoming and really cheerful owner. Amazing food would recommend to anyone also the price are very affordable and you pay for what you get. Lovely views and very clean. We was greeting as we arrived in our taxi. The owner very kindly took our bags and taken them to our room and made us feel like we was at home right from the beginning until we left. We visit this hotel regularly as we feel very welcome and have not ever had a bad experience while been here.

Really recommend to anyone all ages, will definitely be returning

What a change! Sands was always a comfortable hotel but now after the rooms and guest areas refurbishment the hotel has raised its game. Modern kitchenette fixtures, new flooring in bedrooms and a general makeover of the guest areas make a stay here a must.

Great location 50m from the beach and a gentle 5 minute stroll into the resort centre with loads of shops and restaurants on the way.

The ever helpful owner Laertis is always on hand and will do anything in his power to ensure a fantastic stay.

Thoroughly recommended.

This hotel is in an extremely convenient location - directly across the road from the beach, an easy stroll from the town and harbour. A peaceful spot. The rooms are quite spacious and ours was kept very clean with regular changes of towels and bedding. We had a large balcony with a washing line, pegs and a table and 3 chairs. View of a wall in the building opposite but very private. Other rooms do have good views. We paid for air conditioning and this was really a necessity with the temperature reaching 45 during our stay.

We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel. We had just one lunch early on and we attended the Friday night barbecue twice. This is excellent value for money with plentiful, delicious food. We also used the jacuzzi by the pool a couple of times. This was a lovely, relaxing experience and one of the best hotel jacuzzis we have ever used. However, had repeat guests not told us that we needed to ask Laertis to switch it on, we would have assumed that it was never used or never switched on. It did not appear to have water in it.

I would like to make a couple of suggestions. A safe deposit box in each room with a key pad would be much more convenient than having to go into reception and get the owner's key to put in with your own key. Laertis, the owner is a very busy man and not always easy to find!The day before we were due to leave, we wanted to know what time we needed to check out of our room. We asked Laertis and he was unable to tell us. Usually there is a standard check-out time for everyone. We needed to know because we were not being picked up for the airport until 7pm. We were packed and ready anyway but when we asked him again at about 10.30 am, he said he needed us to be out within half an hour! It would have been much simpler if there was a notice in reception stating a standard checking-out time.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to friends and family. There are many repeat guests so they are obviously doing something right.

If you wanna spend the most amazing holiday in Lefkada then you have to choose Sands Hotel. It's a good value for the money. Rooms are modest but very clean, food is great and fresh, large variety cocktails, clean swimming pool. The owner is always available and is more than happy to help you with anything you may need.
Another advantage is the location of the hotel, only 2 minutes away from a nice beach with bars and sunbeds, and less than 10 minutes by walking from Nydri centre.
The only minor inconvenient is that sometimes you can hear your neighbours when they close the door, but this is just a minor detail.
All in all, this is an amazing place, great location, great pool, with a very hard working owner who will fulfill all your needs. We we'll be coming back here for sure!

We have come for a short stay to escape the everyday stresses. The Sands is clean and tidy and the owners ensure that everything is fully sanitised. The gardens are immaculate and the pool is sparkling. This all means we can enjoy a totally chilled time. On arrival Laertis made a simple meal for us which was fresh and delicious and meant we did n't need to go out for food late in the evening. His breakfasts are great too. The rooms now have televisions and internet connection, as well as being painted again. You can see that a good deal of work has been done to keep this lovely hotel in top condition. We wish Laertis a successful season and we'll see him next year.

Myself and partner (early 30's) stayed here and had an amazing holiday. The hotel has recently been revamped and is impeccably clean inside and out. There is a large fridge / self catering facilities in the room if required, we personally ate out each day as there is so much choice. Beach is approx 50m away and copious amounts of beautiful restaurants to eat in. Air conditioning was extra payable at the start of the holiday (around €40 if I remember correctly) and a safe deposit box is also available upon request. This hotel only has 2 floors, so is lovely and quiet, but personable too. You can meet people around the pool in the day and have a drink in the evening with them (if you wish). You get to know people in and around the hotel over the course of your holiday The owner Laertis works extremely hard and always on hand if you need anything. Bathroom is Greek basic....but again very clean and couldn't fault anything. We always had a hot powerful shower. We personally will be back again soon. Thank you Laertis for an amazing stay!!

The Sands Hotel is an excellent place to stay. On arrival Laertis is extremely friendly and will do anything to help from the moment we arrived. Hotel rooms are perfect and have all the facilities we could need. The swimming pool is very nice and kept very clean. The downstairs bar area is brilliant for sitting and having a drink, also very good food especially the breakfast. The location is brilliant just across the road from the beach and a 5 minute walk into Nidri centre. Also the rooms are very quiet and comfortable beds too.

Would 100% stay here again and it has been the best hotel I've stayed in after coming to Lefkada for over 15 years.

Excellent Hotel in a great Location, pool area is kept very clean and tidy with a good snack bar area. The rooms are clean with lovely balconies, fridges and small kitchen area.
We loved the location as it’s a stroll to the restaurants on the sea front at Nidri harbour but quieter in the evening near the hotel, which we loved.
The staff are lovely and make sure everything is to your satisfaction.

We've been staying at Sands Hotel for one week, and unfortunately now we have to leave 😔 this place is amazing! it has a well sized pool, breakfast available from 9-12 and large menu of cocktails! The place is very clean and tidy and the staff cleans your room as often as you want. It's about 2 minutes away from a beautiful beach, and 5-10 min walking from the center of Nidri. The owner... Is a magnificent person who will do anything in his powers to make your stay as nice as possible.
I strongly recommend this place!! We will definitely come back here! Thank you Mr Laertis for everything!
