We return home tomorrow from our week at The Sands and we have had a lovely holiday. We'd read all the reviews before we arrived and therefore had high expectations as it was number one hotel in Flic en Flac. First impression was of the amazing view walking into reception - beautiful infinity pool looking out towards the beach and... More

This is a first one for us, cannot say anything negative about this Hotel. The friendly staff, too many to personally mention! Food was excellent, the seafood BBQ was amazing! You even get your sunglasses cleaned beside the pool! Nice touch! They come around the pool / beach with snacks, frozen drinks. At around 5 p.m. there is a surprise... More

We stayed at Sands beginning end of October - beginning of November and overall I would say it was a good experience. Once we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff and the hotel's manager with a nice cold towel and a glass of sparkling wine. We were checked in immediately and we were upgrated in a Ocean suite... More

Arrived at the hotel with good welcome. Room and bathroom spacious. No mirror in room. Need to move stuff to bathroom where no dressing table available. Noises from interconnected room are heard. Evening buffet rather average with few varieties. Morning breakfast buffet excellent. Lots of choices and it varies from Mauritian to European food. Good job the morning buffet team.... More

Clean, warm, good location, nice beaches, good program, good food, some excellent wines. This is about all I have to say, what would one like to hear more. However, the settings of the review menu require at least 200 characters before it can be sent..... OK, Done!

We were there at the Sands Resort and Spa for our honeymoon in July 2013 and the hotel was just a perfect choice. This has been a long delay in us writing a review, but i am more than happy to state in our thoughts atleast now. The ambience and rooms were great, quite closely related as depicted in the... More

we stayed at Sands in Oct 2011 and again in Sep 2013 It is one of the best resorts on the island. We have 2 children, and we were well looked after. The chef has changed, and the food was much better this time. Too many choices, and too much food. The staff were very helpful, and welcoming. Special thanks... More

We spent 6 nights at Sands Resort as part of our honeymoon in November 2013 (making this a long overdue review). We arrived there slightly early and were shown to the shower room to freshen up while waiting for our room. Our room was a deluxe on the Albion wing ground floor which we found both comfortable and spacious enough... More

Arrived very early and not impressed with welcome but staff generally lovely and friendly, rooms are perfect and same with facilities, we've missed manager/director welcome or acknowledgment - almost two weeks there, and they should leave buffets as such instead of mixing a la carte and buffet - does not work for neither staff or guests (food is great) swimming...

We travelled with Air Mauritius so had a change at Dubai.....a very long trip but so worthwhile. We chose The Sands as it was recommended by our travel agent and it was spot on. As you walk through reception, you walk directly towards the Infinity pool, which is stunning. The staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. Our bags were taken... More
