Guestbook comments from the owner

"The villa apartment was really well furnished and tastefully decorated.All the home comforts were provided, including bath towels. The apartment was in an excellent location being south facing which meant we had plenty on sun on the patio. The resort facilities were excellent and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the whole layout of the resort seemed to be really well thought out and designed and looked like it would be well suited for families. The resort location was good being not too close to the centre of costa teguise but close enough to walk to get to other beaches and restaurants. The resort also had everything you would need if you didn't want to venture out. It was certainly nice to be have somewhere comfortable to relax in if you wanted a bit of time out of the sun. We had a great holiday there and have already recommended it to friends and family and would definitely return" Christine from Cambridge

Lovely accommodation well worth a visit

  • 5 of 5

Lovely people to deal with very responsive... Apartment just as on the website... Some repair work going on around the baby pool. David the owner did email to let us know. But it didn't effect us... Sands beach is a great resort. Ideal for families and couples. We had a fantastic time and would certainly return... Oh as for eating out a must try is namate the Indian restaurant by the beach... Best curry ever... Good overall in town very good... Light house bar also great food and atmosphere...

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the Sands Beach for 12 years now and as you can tell we will definitely be returning. This little bit of paradise is just what you need for a relaxing base. The amenities at hand are fantastic with so much activities for all ages. I must say this apartment is so well maintained and the extra little touches make it feel like a home from home. Being able to just literally walk from your patio out onto the pool is brilliant, especially for families with young children. It is so safe and if the children don't want to sunbath they can stay in and watch tv or play a game whilst you soak up the sun rays from outside and still be close at hand. Restaurants, bars and supermarkets are plenty and within a few minutes walking distance. Hopefully we will get the chance to stay in your beautiful apartment again very soon.

Many thanks

Owner's Response: Hi Julie Thanks for the lovely review and positive feedback. Its clear that you love the apartment and resort for the same reasons we do. The things you mention were part of why we chose to buy the apartment. Having the pool just outside by the patio but having a comfortable place to sit and watch TV if we wanted a break from the sun. Safe for the kids, plenty of restaurants close-by etc. Thank you for complementing the "extra little touches" that make it homely and appealing. We believe a positive first impression when you walk in is an important part of the holiday experience and we want to make it as special as possible. Not everyone spares the time to leave a review so it is very rewarding when guests like yourself show such great appreciation. Hopefully we can welcome you back next year. kind regards

Great apartment with all you could need right next to the pool.

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd holiday in sands beach resort and would definitely recommend it and will go again. There was 5 of us and the apartment had ample room with all we could possibly need and with 3 children being right next to the pool is great. They could come in and out for drinks etc all day. My children mostly preferred to stay at the pool however did join in some of the many activities especially the football which was on every afternoon. They loved the nighttime activities and there was always something to do. Having been twice before in my opinion the palmeras plaza is the best plaza there. There was always plenty of sun beds available and would want to stay here again next time we go back to Lanzarote.

Owner's Response: Hi Thanks very much for the lovely feedback. Yes, I agree, having the pool right outside the apartment makes such a difference to our holidays too. Its great to sit on the patio with a cold drink or ice-cream and take a dip whenever you feel like it. Its great that parents can so easily watch their children in the pool and be able to relax themselves. Yes, we are very lucky with the location, our Plaza is great and the pool is never over crowded. Be sure to look us up the next time you want to return to Lanzarote. kind regards

Perfect location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We’re really glad we picked this property. The location is ideal; with your own patio furniture just outside the door and the patio gets the sun all day. There was a parasol at the table if we fancied a bit of shade.

There are plenty of sun loungers by the pool. They seem to have at least two loungers for each apartment so no rush in the morning like other places. We liked the resort of Costa Teguise. Nice and flat, not hilly like Puerto Del Carmen. We found lots of different squares and strips along the beach where there was a great selection of places to eat. We also used the bars and restaurants in the Sands beach complex. We took the bus a few times to visit Arrecife and Puerto Del Carmen. Also the taxi is not too expensive either if we didn’t feel like getting the bus.

We found the apartment to be the most comfortable we have stayed in Spain or the Canaries. Everything appeared new. We will definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Ross Thanks for the lovely feedback. We are very happy with the location of the apartment and that was a major factor in us choosing where to buy. It really is ideal. Sunny patio outside with a pool right there. It makes a such a difference for a family holiday to have a patio where you can sit at your table, see the kids in the pool and can have lots of cold drinks, ice-creams etc in the fridge freezer a few feet away. In most places we had stayed in before, we had to carry bags of stuff down to the pool area and buy drinks at the pool bar etc. A bit annoying to have to carry everything with you and costs a fortune in drinks for the kids (and adults). Having your own sun loungers was also a real treat. I have upgraded lots of items in the apartment since your stay so hopefully your next visit will be even better :) kind regards

Fabulous - great location very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I think it must have just been done up.The place looked freshly painted inside and outside. It was very homely and comfortable. More so than the photos we had seen when we booked. Lots of homely touches too which we appreciated. Everything looked new. The best thing is that the pool is so close. Just a few steps away from the patio. We tended to stay on the patio and use the chairs there and just take a dip in the pool when we got hot. The bar across the road did lovely food but we also took a 2-minute stroll into Las Cucharos most evenings where there was a great selection of restaurants and bars. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We didn't have the kids with us but will bring them back perhaps in September.

Owner's Response: HI Desmond/Jane Thanks for the lovely review. You are right, we only recently had it refurbished and painted and we hadn't updated the photos. Thanks for reminding us :). I have uploaded some new pics just now. We recently bought a new TV, microwave, kitchen utensils etc in readiness for the busy summer period. We also freshened up the interior furnishings a little. So the very positive feedback is very much appreciated. Thank you. kind regards

Fabulous Fabulous Fabulous!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have as a family of four stayed in this villa many times over the past few years and we love it. The accommodation has all you need for an enjoyable stay and its location on the plaza is perfect, a real sun trap.

Can't wait to book here again!

From the Owner

We bought this property because we loved the complex. We loved being able to open our patio doors and stroll out to the pool. We had done our share of package holidays, struggling with buggies and bags down loads of steps to go down to the pool, where you had to carry a small fortune just to buy drinks, snacks and ice-creams. It was such a treat to be able to leave your own ice-creams and cold drinks in your own fridge and have your own patio furniture by the poolside. The furniture was so comfortable that it was a home away from home and we could have lunch in or head to one of the restaurants if we preferred.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Arrecife at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Hotel Bar, Hacienda at 40 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Hotel, Mai Tai restaurant & bar at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : Costa Teguise at 100 Metres Car: not necessary


You have the choice of relaxing at the private lagoon style beach on the complex or taking a 5 minute stroll to Las Charcos Beach. This is a tranquil beach, with 640m of golden sands protected by breakwaters, this beach sits in the heart of Costa Teguise. It's one of the favourite beaches for windsurfers. There are numerous bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. The Aquarium is only 5 minutes away and is a must if you like sharks!


Sands Beach resort is approx 20 min drive from the main Arrecife airport. Plenty of taxis are available and should cost approx €20. There are also plenty of reputable care hire companies available, should you wish to explore the island. Taxis are available from reception on a 24 hour basis and there is no waiting time.


The villa is only a 5 min walk to the main centre of Costa Teguise which is one of Lanzarote’s most popular tourist resorts. One advantage is that it is flat so you don't have to worry about climbing hills. Costa Teguise is also home to Lanzarote's only golf course.

It's a convenient place from which to explore the islands tourist and cultural attractions, as well as the northern fishing villages of Arrieta and Orzola. The island’s historic capital of Teguise is a 10 to 15 minute drive away

Further Details:

Whether it is an active holiday that you are planning, or a lazy chilled out break, then there are lots of places for you to visit and things to do in and around Costa Teguise. The other main tourist resorts of Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blance are only a short taxi drive away. To get a real feel of Lanzarote you should make your way to some of the villages scattered over the island. You can do this by excursion's that you can book through any good local tour operator. Of course there is another way and that is to hire a car giving you the freedom to explore this island at your own pace and in your own time.

If you like a good haggle and great bargain there is a large market in Teguise, La Villa de Teguise is one of the main cultural and tourist centres on the island. One of its most popular events is the Mercadillo. Every Sunday morning, the entire village turns into a grand open air market where shoppers can browse among the stalls of wares from artifacts to home made bread, all animated by groups of folk dancers and singers in native costume.

Throughout the year Costa Teguise has many carnivals and fiestas, so if you are on holiday here whilst a fiesta is taking place, the you should go along and have a look and for the more daring participate, which can do by taking part in the fancy dress and partying alongside it all - it is a brilliant day and night out, with which most do party well into the early hours and some don't even stop for two days - so be prepared!

The nightlife in Costa Teguise is quieter than its neighbour, Puerto del Carmen so if you fancy partying the night away then you can take the short journey by bus or taxi to that resort. In Costa Teguise however, there is a good selection of restaurants, bars and pubs along Avenida Islas Canarias near the Toca Shopping centre and also at Los Charcos. You will be able to find many restaurants where you can just sit in peace and watch the world go by along the seafront and promenade.
