    Comments:  Impressive Complex for families and athletes. A sweet deal and a unique atmosphere. All pay attention to details. We went there for a week training the ‪#‎impulsatufísico‬ and sharing experiences with athletes at the highest level. I really liked the ease with which you could leave the bikes or neoprene in the door of the room without fear that you steal and stuff like that. The employees a wonder too. I'll repeat!!

    Comments:  Absolutely great place for active family vacation as well for active training camp for athletes at any level. Once they finish swimming pool it will be great center for triathletes in training center. 1 minute you are out on the run at great trails or roads, 1 minute and you are out on the hilly or flat roads for bike ride + mountain bike trails all around. For long open water swim is only 50 steps out to the beach and you are on your own. Rooms ( studios + apartments ) are very nice decorated with a lots of space for family or bike and so on. It has its standard and will satisfy any needs. Location is very close to airport and it has its own supermarket with good prices. Employees at Sands Beach Resort- 100% satisfaction!!! No words, you have to come and experience.

    Comments:  Just back from 4 weeks here so had plenty time to check it out. The room was fine, facilities good, bed and bedding, towels etc were in good order. The reception and staff were efficient and pleasant, booked us in quick & gave direction to the room which was easy to follow. The pool at the plaza was cold but it is winter there, the pool at the Mai Tai is a heated pool and is good for adults and children. The Olympic swimming pool is also heated. The food was good at both restaurants and the staff are always friendly and smiling making you really welcome. It cooled down at night but not too bad, there were extra blankets in the cupboard if required. The gym was adequately equipped for a holiday resort, the convenience store is open till 10pm and is very handy. The night time entertainment was fun, from 70s nights to The Beetles, they Active team are very good. For those wanting to read there is a well stocked library. Internet can be expensive but for 1 euro you can get 10 minutes a day, fine for checking email. The room was cleaned daily to a good standard, fresh towels when needed. The best Chinese buffet is in Las Cucharas shopping centre beside Popeyes bar just 4 minutes walk from the resort.Thought to be the best on the island. There are lots of eateries, you cannot go wrong. Costa Tequise is a good resort where you don't get trouble at night, no drunks walking about. Very civilised. The best holiday I have ever had, will definitely be back. Thank you to all at Sands Beach.
