We've been around the world and stopped at a lot of places. You cannot get better than this for a first class, relaxing place with terrific food and excellent service. The scale of the hotel and services is spot on - not too big and not too small. We are almost at the end of our 10 days. Amongst the... More

We had the half board package which included breakfast and dinner, and the food was always very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely. The resort has everything you need but if you... More

The cheerful and helpful staff( shout out to the Melvin, kajal and jayshree for all the help), an excellent dinner buffet menu which was well balanced... More

Perfect - again! If we thought it was good the last time (2012), it was even better this time around. Exceptional service. Stunning views and lots to do if you want to, nothing to do if you want that... the choice is yours. Friendly staff who greet you by name, it was all the little extra touches that make it... More

We were here for our honeymoon in 2012 and absolutely loved it. The resort is more intimate than the other resorts the travel agents tried to sell us on. The infinity pool is lovely with the view looking out over a lovely bay where dolphins swim. The hotel service is top notch and we enjoyed chatting to the staff. The... More

The best thing about the Sands Hotel is the ring of rocks surrounding the swimming area of the beach. This attracts all kinds of fish from the coral reef, which makes it ideal if you want to snorkel from the beach. My husband even saw a lion fish out there. We loved trips out over the reef in the free... More
