I can't stop thinking about my holiday at The Sands hotel, what a beautiful hotel, I can't think of one negative. The rooms were spacious and our room was right by the beach. We stayed for 10 days but wish it was longer, if we are lucky to go back to Mauritius we will definitely stays at The Sands. Not... More

We spent 10 wonderful days at this hotel. From the moment we stepped into this hotel after our long journey from Europe, till the moment we checked out on our departure date we were simply in heaven (actually the moment we checked out we were almost in tears because it's hard to say goodbye to something so wonderful!). I just... More

The check in was special, a bell was rung, manager on duty came to greet me, I was offered a welcome drink. After checking in I was escorted to my room , shown all the amenities , all with... More

We are still dreaming about the wonderful stay we had at Sands Hotel. It is as good as the other reviews say it is. Special thanks to the team at the Boat House. Very patient and always helpful. Had loads of happy water skiing trips, as well as stand up board ( paddle board) and other activities to fill our... More

Having been to Mauritius 7 years ago and stopping at Hilton Mauritius Resort, I was expecting the service to not be as good at this hotel. However, the service was absolutely amazing!! My parents are quite picky with what they eat and although they didn't like what was to offer on the buffet, the chefs were brilliant and cooked special... More

Returned for a third visit to the Sands Resort and Spa following the renovation last year. The hotel has retained its small, intimate feel. I can't understand why it hasn't be classed as a five star hotel. The rooms are still the same size and layout following the renovation but the showers have better enclosures (although ours leaked all over... More

This resort is fantastic. It is situated at the end of the Coastal Road and has a nice secluded beach so it never seemed too busy (at least when we were there in July/August). Our room (321) was great. The room was very quiet as it was not connected to adjacent rooms either to the left or right. Really spacious... More
