Good sport at the Sands Beach Resort Lanzarote

The Sands Beach Resort on the Costa Teguise is quickly becoming a leading light of the sports tourism sector in Lanzarote. The resort focuses on providing guests with a wide range of opportunities to enjoy an active holiday. The resort offers facilities for everything from table tennis to windsurfing. The management not only devotes a significant portion of its efforts to serving the needs of its guests but also to putting something back into the local community on Lanzarote by sponsoring local sports teams on the island. These activities have been recognized this year by the Lanzarote Tourist Board which granted the hotel the Distinguished Tourism Business Award.

The CEO of Sands Beach Resort, Juan Carlos Albuixech, recently said: “Our goal is to attract customers who like to play sports and spend their holidays with their families.” Mr Albuixech went on to highlight the investment of more than seven million Euro which was required to revive an establishment that was virtually in ruins only four years ago.

The resort now has 368 apartments which means it covers an area larger than any other hotel in Lanzarote. Moreover, one of its main features is a sea-water lake with a la carte restaurant for the exclusive use of its customers. Albuixech highlights the fact that guests who stay at the Sands Beach Resort can even train with members of the local Triathlon Club of Costa Teguise. “Our guests can run or cycle with our local triathletes”, he stated.

This Lanzarote hotel does not offer all inclusive packages but a half board option and the services of a nutritionist are available. “We want to offer alternative meals and an example of this is the wide range of salads served at the lakeside restaurant,” stated the director of Sands Beach.

The hotel sponsors a basketball team and organizes various sports competitions for children. They also help an association for the development of people with disabilities through sports by funding a programme for the purchase of sports equipment.
