What makes this Villa unique
Ideal for families with children of all ages or an older couple looking for a quiet relaxing break.
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
so relaxed I was horizontal
it is a very nice property but needs a little TLC, the non-slip bath mat was a hazard and was safer NOT using it.Personally I'd rip the bath out and put just a shower in there. the toilet was loose and you had to sit at an angle due to the toilet roll holder being in the way. the pillows were a little lumpy and you could start to feel the springs through the mattress. the salad drawer could do with changing as it is cracked and chipped. there is 1 sun lounger which sags but still relatively comfortable. Apart from these few things the apartment is very good. the outside pool, like all those in Lanzarote, was cold but once you got past the waist line it was ok. the sea pool was one of the reasons I booked this site and it was a let down as it was sludge however that is the resorts problem and nothing to do with the apartment.we ate on the terrace most nights,it has a nice large table and the chairs are ok. definitely go back there again. the resort itself could do better as there are different charges for private rentals and those they rent e.g. mattresses for the sun lounger appeared to be only for the resort clients and not private although we got them. also parking at the side of the resort inside the security gates is 20euro per week for resort clients and 50euro for private however they gave it to me for 20euro. most hotels make money on currency exchange it was 1.17euro to the £ downtown and 1.04euro at the resort which I though excessive. the supermarket on-site is expensive as you would expect but again I think they are TOO expensive when the one further down the road is a lot cheaper. again a lot of this is down to the resort and NOT the owner of the apartment but if you are staying then a little knowledge about the resort may be useful. as it says in the title I was so relaxed I was horizontal.
Ideal property for our family holiday!
We loved our stay at Sands Beach with our children aged 12 and 7. The property was ideal with everything that we needed, including a washing machine and dishwasher, oven and microwave. There was plenty of storage and clothes hangers in the wardrobes. There was the added bonus of Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and water on arrival. The only slight issue's were that the beds weren't the most comfortable and the mattresses had seen better days, this could easily be improved with the help of a mattress topper of some description. Also the patio doors were taped on one side behind the curtains and they shook and rattled a bit with the wind at night.The property itself is in an ideal location in the resort, Amarilla Plaza is one of the more sheltered plaza's. the terrace is south facing and it is lovely to be able to relax on the terrace whilst the children play in full sight in the pool area. We were on holiday with our friends who were staying on another plaza but they tended to spend pool days with us we were more sheltered from the wind and had the sun on our terrace. Sands Beach is well staffed with lifeguards on each pool who are very friendly and always making sure the pool area is clean and tidy, the whole resort is kept lovely and clean. There is a mini disco for the kids most nights and a pyjama party between 9-10pm to keep the younger children entertained. There is also entertainment on in the bar which varies and is ok but improves after a few cocktails! It is a lovely 5-10 minute walk along the beach to a good selection of bars,restraurants and gift shops. We went on a couple of day trips-Rancho Texas and Timanfaya and would recommend them both.We would definately return and would love to stay in the same property again, thankyou Keith

Great villa with great view
We have just returned from ten glorious days in Sands Beach Resort, the villa was very clean and had everything a family would want from a self catering holiday, it has a lovely sea view and is very close to the pool in a very sunny position. There are lots of good bars and restaurants a short walk away, in fact there is a Sports bar just across the road, which does good take away meals if required. We would definitely recommend this villa and Sands Beach Resort and hope to return next year. Thank you Keith for your very helpful communication and information. Kind Regards, Wendy & George (This is a copy of our last review, as nothing changed, still great)

All year round access to Lanzarote from the majority of international airports. Fly into Arrecife airport using many of the many airlines (including budget airlines) and travel companies, for example, Aer Lingus, Easyjet, first Choice and Thomas Cook.
Transfer time from the airport to the resort is only 15 - 20 minutes. Taxis and car rental available at good prices.
If booking I will provide contact details for a transfer company who will pick you up at the airport, plus are cheaper than taxis.
The Canary Islands region
Lanzarote is one of the Canary islands and due to its proximity to the African coast enjoys a very pleasant climate all year round with little rain! A definite plus! Costa Teguise is one of Lanzarote's main tourist resorts and is situated on the coast. It is only about 15 minutes drive from Arrecife airport. If you wish to contact us we can help with transport ( including infant/ children seats).
The Sands Beach complex has a lot to offer but if you wish to do more there is plenty of choice close by.
Enjoy sitting in the square having a coffee or a glass of wine and watch the world go by! On a Friday night book early for one of the lovely restaurants in the square and enjoy the sights and sounds of the local craft market.
Enjoy the super seaviews as you shop along the waterfront.
If you feel a bit more active have a fun day at the nearby water park!
5 mins walk to LasCucharas with its excellent bathing/windsurfing facilities.
