With pretty lights in the rockery and candles on the table, the terrace of the hotel restaurant at Seaside Sandy Beach is a beautiful place to eat. The al fresco theme continues inside, where the greenery meets intricate Moorish tiling. Here, the chefs cook up a plethora of tasty treats, including Canarian specialities and international dishes. Look out for lavish buffets, show cooking and weekly gala nights. Sitting pretty on the edge of the pool, the pool bar offers snacks and a choice of drinks. The daily Seaside tea party, where you can enjoy tea, coffee and freshlybaked cakes, is a real treat. Try the waffles and crepes; they are especially popular amongst guests. In the evening, sip drinks and relax in the hotel bar, which hosts professional entertainment and shows six nights per week.
The location is one of the best bits about the Seaside Sandy Beach. This familyfriendly Playa del Ingles hotel is just 200 metres away from the beach, 200 metres away from the vibrant resort centre and 100 metres away from the closest shops, bars and restaurants.
