As much as Sand Island Beach has been a home to a family for generations, so a number of our staff have been with us for generations - many have worked with us for more than twenty years. We pride ourselves on a tight, loyal, friendly team; large enough to get the job done but small enough that our guests can know them a little. 

And don't be intimidated by the self-catering bit: self catering doesn't mean you have to cook yourself! Good gracious, no. Not on holiday. Not unless you really want to. We are fortunate to have on hand a team of freelance cooks, some of whom we have worked with for years.  Don't be fazed by octopus and calamari if you've never prepared them before - the cooks will either do it for you or show you how.
