We have just returned from a 12 day stay at the Sands. From the moment we were dropped of by our transfer we were treated wonderfully. The hotel is at the end of Wolmar beach and enjoys the most magnificent views of Tamarin and Le Morne. Our room was a superior suite in the Tamarin side and the lovely Melissa... More

Having spent a lot of time on Trip Adviser looking at many reviews of hotels on Mauritius, I decided to go to the Sands Resort, partly because of the recent refurbishment but also because of the good reviews post August 2014. I was not disappointed but more to the point neither were my children (32 & 27) who joined us... More

Despite 8 hours of continuous thunder and lightening on 4th March and several other storms during our 10 days we really enjoyed our stay. Staff were very attentive despite the additional task they had of keeping the floors dry. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Food very nice with a large selection to choose from. The only dissappointment was we... More

The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom (with walk-in closet) was huge. Well trained service. The view is spectacular. There is a private beach-front, perfect for a quiet day by the sea. Great evening entertainment at the bar. Good food. Good spa.

If you are looking for a place to relax with nice food and friendly staff at a very reasonable rate. Great rooms with a very nice view, especially on first or second floor in the Tamarin wing. Ground floor rooms have a little less privacy, but you have the advantage of being directly in the beautiful garden. Friendly staff, nice... More

Hi, I stayed in Sands for my honeymoon. Both me and my husband liked the hospitality. We took a beachfront suite. The place is amazing. It is a prefect destination for a holiday. Only thing that can be improved was the options for vegetarian food. There were very limited options for lunch and dinner in the restaurants. Also the breakfast... More

We arrived at the Sands for a 2 day stay. We wanted a bit of luxury after staying in an apartment in Flic in Flac. Lovely welcome drink, bit of fizz to get us started Our room wasnt quite ready but the free lunch went down well! Once in our room, a deluxe suite the 'basic' option, we got the... More

The Sands Resort lived up to expectations. It is a beautiful resort with excellent rooms and service. The only downside we found was that the food did not really live up to the quality of the rest of the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel on Valentines night and the selection and quality of the food was poor. This... More

Having done a reasonable amount of research on which area to stay in Mauritius, it seemed sensible to stay on the South West, and Flic en Flac was favourite. Being on my own I realised that it was going to be quite expensive for accommodation. I looked at cheaper options but decided that the Sands Resort Hotel was the correct... More
