THE LAST 2 YEARS WE WENT TO NORTHERN CYPRUS & GRAN CANARIA - AND HATED THEM BOTH!  SO THIS YEAR WE HOPED FOR THIRD TIME LUCKY , AND WER'NT DISSAPPOINTED SANDYS APPTS WERE IN A GREAT LOCATION TO STROLL INTO KOS TOWN ( 20 MINS / BUT WHO CARES ) . THE APPTS WERE SPOTLESS AND WHEN I ASKED FOR ' SLIGHT ' ROOM MAINTENANCE - IT WAS DONE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY !! THE WOODEN CHALETS ON SITE HAVE TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED ( book through sandys ) . A STROLL DOWN TO THE BEACH & MARINA TAKES ABOUT 10 MINS WHERE A LOCAL 'GREEK GEEZER' SELLS FRESH FRIUT FROM AN API . IF YOU LOVE YOUR GREEK TUCKER HEAD FOR A RESTAURANT CALLED LE STREGA (the witch) & TRY KLEFTIKO ( ooh mamma ) , THERE IS ALSO A BAR CALLED TAURUS on MANDILARA ST THAT SHOWS LIVE FITBA ON HUGE T.Vs ......ANYWAY ALL IN ALL ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!

Just like to say love the place!! will hopefully be returning in the not to distant future.

Spent most days just lazing around the pool topping up the tan. There was some excellent people staying at the Sandy's which really made the holiday, had a great laugh with all of them, made some wicked friends that we will no doubt keep in touch with.
 
rooms were basic but fine, cleaned every day the pool and bar area was spotless the guy that cleaned the pool must have spent about 2 hours each morning making sure it was spotless.
 
For the scottish girls and there mum i still have my white bits!!
 
If you are wondering about going to Sandy's wonder no more bloody go you'll regret it if you dont.
 
All the staff were great - really helpful chatty and nice what more could you ask for.
 
We loved our holiday here mainly due to the nice people we meet and the friends staff i.e. George et al.

Thanks to Sandy's apartments and all the staff we had a lovely holiday.

A special thank you to George in our hour of need, due to Olympic misplacing our suitcase.
Olympic rep did not want to know!! But George stepped in and drove us to the airport and back. What more can you say ?? but loads of gratitude and a big THANKS

Sandys Apartments were brilliant! We had the best 2 weeks of our life there! The food was amazing! Especially Saganaki!!!! Try it! The rooms were really clean! The maid came everyday! The staff were great especially petros! One of the funniest guys ever! Kostas was great aswell always could put a smile on your face and George makes the best cocktails ever especially our cocolocos! They made our holiday what it was!  and we miss it sooooo much but are definatley coming back next year!

Sandys is a great place! its fab if you want to go for a pool holiday everything you need restaurant bar and mini market! Pedro is a funny he works behind the bar and george needs to get his beer prices sorted out 3 euro for a pint! very very clean through out cleaners there everyday with fresh towels and bedding. it is about 15mins away from kos town and a taxi is just 5 euro! so its a great location! nice and quiet if you want to get sleep from clubbing! lol! stayed for 2 weeks will be back next year!

We were at Sandys last year and had a great time. I can't understand the few negative comments. George and co. could not have been nicer. We liked it so much that we have just booked again for this year ( first time we have ever done that ).

Spent 2 weeks at Sandys in July 2005. Everything was good about the place. The apartments were clean and adequate, the pool was beautiful, the food was excellent and good price, and the staff were all very friendly & helpful.

Would recommend to anyone.

Sandys Studios definately made my 6 week holiday in Kos this summer. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, for whatever we needed they always helped us out. The apartments are lovely, I stayed in three different kinds and all of them were spotlessly clean.
The location is slightly outside of the city center but this was an added bonus to me as it was nice to relax during the day. There is always great craic at the bar at night if you wanted a night in. Food is also stunning at the bar, very handy if you're not in the mood for the busy restaurant strip!
An excellent place for families, I definately recommend it.

I spent 6weeks in sandys in summer 2005..
i met the most amazing people.george and helen the owners did absolutly everything possible for my friend and i and couldn't have been nicer..the bar men are super and great fun.|as a family run business it is a complete sucess. i never heard 1guest say anything negative about it. all they said is how it is 1million times better than all the rest.i would go back in the morning if i could.
i miss every1 there and i really miss the fabulous island of kos.the weather is fab, the nitelife is all u could ask for, and the food, especially sandys spagetti is devine.love it and miss it.

Having reviewed the reviews previously posted I can honestly say that Sandy's is a good solid holiday destination.

The apartments are simple yet effective. The Chalets are excellent.
The location is good and best suited for those wishing to get away from it all. It is only 10 minutes to the beach at Psilidi.  I don't mind walking to and from places so the stroll to Kos Town centre (25 minutes) wasn't a problem.  It's also a great way to see Kos town
Food on-site is good a bit like Greece's version of a pub lunch.  If the pool bar and taverna is busy you may find yourself waiting 20/25 mintues but this is a good opportunity to meet the other holiday makers and/or have a drink from the reasonably priced bar.
Swimming pool is 15 metres approx and can sometimes get busy a peak period but it's good for a nice cool dip.
 
Overall I would visit Sandy's again and would recommend anyone visiting Kos to go to Sandy's especially if you are looking to get away from it all.
 
The staff and management at Sandy's are all helpfull, hard working and friendly.
 
My only suggestion is that they lay on a small room (at no extra cost) for the people going out on night flights so they can leave baggage and have a much needed shower.

When we first arrived in Kos we weren't to sure, the hotels people were getting dropped off at were some right dumps! We arrived at Sandys at about 5 in the morning so we really just wanted to sleep !

I have to say Sandys really made our holiday i was really worried cos we hadn't even seen a picture before we went! We had a lovely pool,  lovely surroundings and the rooms were fairly basic but clean and tidy but what do you really need only a comfy bed and hot water ?! Which we had plenty of!
   We will go back to Sandys one day thats certain!
The only thing i would warn you is the town is further away than you think and the back road you walk down isn't very well lit sometimes no lights at all! so if you are anything like me with an over active imagination i would advise you to take a torch!!
 Had a brilliant holiday thanks to Sandys will see them again soon!

I need the E-mail adress of the appartment for to ask informations and price and the possibility to reserve. Pls could you send the address to my mail? Thanks in advance danio76@tiscali.it

I dont have much to say here. Stayed in the appartments. Not very clean I thought. In fact I decided to give Sandys the benefit of the doubt and was disappointed. I can see why some people like it however I found that if you had any problems, unless you were in with George et all they were not delt with on a professional basis. Also for some reason for a host he is very confrontational to some of his guests and in my opinion for no good reason in many instances. I understand that its a difficult business but I could not recommend the appartments. I didnt see the bungalows and perhaps for spending more money maybe you get a better deal. That would appear to be the problem with Sandys. Two sets of accomodation and two sets of attitudes to the clients. A successful operator would be conscious of this. Until this is rectified (and I will never know if it is or not) I could not recommend Sandys. Sorry George. Its Attitude Attitude Attitude.

It's the best and I should know..spent whole 10 weeks there with my  2 daughters and can't wait to get back. The staff are like family they could never do enough for you.all those complaints are rubbish... Have been going to Kos for 4 years and would never think of staying anywhere else.The bungalows are fantastic value and make the holiday so special.Like having your own home in Greece.The prices are the same as most of the island and if you can't walk the 10 minutes into town or get a taxi for 7pound return  I suggest a fat farm and spa or Margate next time(the beach will be right there for you.)my kids have sensitive skin and the pool is fine..they are in it 24-7 and have never so much as got red eyes.If you want good value for your money with people who do whatever they can for you then this is the place.See you in July George and co

 Very unprofessional Claire! A rep that adds comment to an opinion page.. of course it was fantastic.. it paid your wages!! but u urself should have clicked on to the fact... We didn't think that much of the rep service we had.. thats y u didn't get the commision for our trips ect... We sorted everything ourself .. Remember our Welcome meeting? no neither did we! because u didn't give us one! U spoke to me and not the whole group!! U could have actually had alot of business from us.. f only u had took the time and effort.. U suggested lots of things but never followed them thro' ... so yes ur opinion is very important about Sandy's.. pity u didn't put as much effort into the service user rather than the service provider seems as the service user paid an awful lots of dosh to get there!

Claire W           

dont know how you dare saying all these things about sandys its a fantastic place and the staff are fab. I worked there last year as a rep  

Joe B           

What a load of bollocks this is a nice place clean tidy, nice pool, nice staff what are u all moaning about

Morag and brian L           

have just read the comments on the net . we have been to sandys twice now and looking forward to a third time. the comment that we were reading were laughable. what planet were they on. George and helen and all the staff bent over backwads to help you in any way that they could. Even when the family all came they still made you part of the night. all i can say is thank you for a lovely time and lovely birthday (may 20) helens name day to. see you all in 2005
ps watch the post for something nice at xmas

lots of love brian and morag

We stayed at Sandys from the 6th Oct to the 20th and I can't believe the comments from the wedding party - we found George and Pedro to be complete gentlemen, nothing was a problem to them - the prices in the bar & restaurant were at least the same, sometimes cheaper, than in Kos Town or Psalidi - definitely a place we would go back to - clean, quiet & a nice walking distance to Kos Town or Psalidi - log cabins were absolutely brilliant - our studio and the pool were spotless - good luck George & Pedro and all the staff from Rose & Bryan Samuels

Gerard N           

Just popped in 1 year later to see how was Sandys doing. Imagine my suprise to see its still a dog and that George and his pals are still as wonderful(NOT)as ever. I can only confirm that most of the horrible experiences listed happened to us also. In our party 4 people also got sick which I directly relate to the lack of hygine in this place. The people here, who I see are still as rude as ever would want a little lesson in manners to start with. Instead of accepting that they may be in the wrong they go on the offencive.
I've never seen a site that people have got so woked up about.
George take a pill. and get a personality transplant because you are the nearest thing to Jabba the Hut in eprsonality that I've ever met. ( He's from Star Wars if you need to check.

Jo C           

well i have one more comment and final one.... ner ner ner ner ner ... in return to your very childish attitude what else can i say is this a commision based comment you made or are u not reading the other comments on the page from last year as well... slag all the others off as well... or get a grip you poor excuse for a woman (DON@T JUDGE WHAT U DIDN@T SEE)

Louise B           

well if you bothered to read my comment in full you wuld read that i included a statement that said "everyone has a different time whilst on holiday" but i will still stand by the fact that George and his staff did not deserve the insulting comments.
Sandys are a fantastic place to stay with a warm friendly atmosphere that should not have to put up with abusive insults.

Louise B           

I WOULD LIKE TO EMPHASISE THAT THE PREVIOUS COMMENTS ABOUT SANDYS FROM THE WEDDING PARTY ARE ABSOLUTE RUBBISH, I'VE NEVER HEARD SUCH CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM HOLIDAY AND I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!. GEORGE AND HIS STAFF WERE EXTREMELY FRIENDLY WHO WOULD DO WHATEVER THEY COULD TO OBLIGE. THE WEDDING PARTY MUST HAVE BEEN LIVING IN A DREAM WORLD OR SUFFERING FROM A PSYCHIATRIC DISORDER TO WRITE SUCH NONSENCE.
SANDYS IS A FANTASTIC PLACE WITH A WARM FRIENDLY QUIET ATMOSPHERE I WOULD SUGGEST ALL READERS TOTALLY DISREGARD THE COMMENTS WRITTEN THEY ARE UNFAIR AND UNTRUE!!!!. YES, EVERYONE HAS DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES WHILST ON HOLIDAY BUT GEORGE AND HIS STAFF DO NOT DESERVE THE POOR WRITE UP.
GOOD ON YOU GEORGE FOR WRITING A REPLY I DON'T BLAME YOU FOR STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF THOSE ACCUSATIONS ARE UNTRUE AND UNFOUNDED!!!!!!!!!!
COMMENT TO THE WEDDING PARTY - PLEASE LOOK UP THE DEFINITION OF IGNORANT. THE ONLY PEOPLE I COULD FIT INTO IT WOULD BE YOU AND NOT GEORGE AND HIS STAFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GEORGE - THANK YOU FOR THE FANTASTIC TIME I HAD, THE PERSONAL TOUCH AND SERVICE WAS SECOND TO NONE, DON'T LET ONE PARTY INFLUENCE YOUR VIEWS ON THE ENGLISH WE ARE NOT ALL SO OPINIONATED AND OUT TO SUE BECAUSE THEY EMBARRASSED THEMSELVES (IF THEY DIDN'T WHY DID THEY APOLOGISE THE MORNING AFTER IF THEY DIDN'T FEEL THEY CAUSED A NUSICENCE AMONG THE FELLOW HOLIDAY MAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I FEEL I NEED TO APOLOGISE MYSELF FOR BEING THE SAME NATIONALITY AS THOSE PEOPLE.
GEORGE SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!! WISH I MISSED MY FLIGHT (WELL I DID TRY) SO COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER.
