We stayed at Sandy Beach hotel this week for one night, which was the first night of our wedding (which took place elsewhere). When I called to book the room, the reservations were very polite, and they even agreed to let us stay at the room until 3pm the next day - as we would arrive around 5am in the morning. We booked one of the executive rooms for 154 euros with breakfast. Having visited the hotel several times for wedding receptions and had pleasant experiences, and having booked one of the expensive rooms our expectations were high. However, when we arrived at 5am (still in wedding dress and all) we were greeted grumpily by a very sleepy receptionist who barely looked at us, let alone wish us something for the wedding, and who simply passed the key to us and told us 'third floor'. Needless to say we had to carry our stuff on our own to the room which was quite disappointing for an 'executive room'. It seems that when the hotel was renovated a few years ago they chose the cheapest materials (for example all lightings were from IKEA) while they left the bathrooms the same. There was only shampoo, shower gel and soap provided (I really needed the hair conditioner that night) and there was absolutely nothing complimentary in the room for newlyweds - not even a card! We were woken up early in the morning by maintenance people shouting at each other in the corridor, asking each other for tools from one room to the other! Breakfast the next morning was also disappointing - despite the variety it was not 4 star quality. It is served in a white decorated restaurant downstairs, which may look nice in photos but again has a much cheaper feeling than a 4 star restaurant. We were out by 10am the next morning as we were so disappointed we didnt even want to use the pools. Though it was clean and generally OK, it was simply not worth the money we spent and they definitely didnt treat a newly-wed couple as they should have. We are not going back I'm afraid.
