We were on full board (breakfast and dinner), and the food was mainly served buffet style, there was adequate amounts and you could find something you liked if certain dishes... More

This is a lovely resort in a somewhat isolated location, however we would recommend hiring a driver and renting a car (we did both and covered the whole island in day trips). We found breakfast good, evening meal adequate, the spices dining was better. The children's menus were good. There is a good choice of water sports, tennis. The pools... More

Our Trip to Mauritius at the Sands Resort - was the most beautiful experience I've had on holiday. It was like waking up in heaven.. The Resort, service, food, spa cannot be faulted. They were very attentive to all details and we were able to relax and enjoy each day. Thank you.

May 2014 was our 5th fabulous visit to the Sands. It's always an amazing feeling walking into the hotel and looking out over Tamarin Bay and the Le Morne peninsular. A sense of calmness and our relaxation can begin knowing we are going to be looked after for the next 9 days. Our ground floor room was on the Tamarin... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in May. We usually travel long haul regularly and like our holidays to be active. But this time we needed a quiet and restful one. We've been to MRU several times and know the island well. We chose 'Sands' because of TAs favourable reviews and its location: we wanted to be on... More

My wife and I booked this hotel looking for a nice quiet relaxing place to stay. Our other choices were La Pirogue or Sugar Beach - both of which we found were rammed with noisy children.
