We had two relaxed days in the hotel. It is quite nice because they do not have so many rooms and I think all have sea view (side or direct). On one day we liked the food (dinner) very much and on the other day it was not so good and tasteless. We don't like the dishes of plastic on... More

Nice beach though broken coral stones. Bring water shoes. Everything else, food, music varies per night so makes for interesting variety. Hotel staff are very nice and the general manager is helpful. Our wifi was not working but the first thing Monday, it was fixed. Wifi is everywhere including the beach which was a nice surprise. The outlook into Tamarin... More

Unfortunately our stay at the Sands Resort in Mauritius was not quite the honeymoon experience we were looking forward to. I will deal with each part in turn... - The room - the hotel has recently been renovated and the room was clean, modern and well sized. We spent most evenings sat on the balcony overlooking the palm trees and... More

We've been staying at this hotel since just after it opened over 10 years ago, have seen many changes over the years and were keen to see it again after the renovations. We arrived 18th September and were there until 2nd October. Always tired after the long overnight journey from the UK but as soon as we arrived the Sands... More

My wife and I just returned from 10 nights at The Sands. Overall we enjoyed our experience at the resort - although there were a few points of concern. To start with the most important points: the rooms are spacious, and all have private balconies. The beds are extremely comfortable. An innovation I have never come across before is that... More

We have just returned from our first (and certainly not our last) stay at the Sands. After reading all the reviews we had high expectations and I’m happy to say that these were all met. Our flights on Air Mauritius were as good as always and we loved the new SSR terminal. What a huge improvement on the old one.... More
