From the moment you arrive, greeted by a number of the staff with towels to freshen up after a long journey, the bar is set and only gets better. The setting is fantastic, directly on the beach in immaculate grounds with a stunning pool. The staff, without exception, are wonderful, genuinely friendly, always happy and helpful, a credit to the... More

This hotel was one of the finest we have visited in years! It is really a treat with all the extra activities that is for free. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they feel like old friends when you leave after your holiday! Beautiful location with fantastic restaurants.

We returned from the Sands on July 3rd after 14 nights for our honeymoon. The hotel was stunning with beautiful tropical plants everywhere. The rooms are amazing; huge bathrooms, comfy beds and views over the grounds and sea. The location is also fantastic next too Tamarin Bay in a quiet spot. Room service was excellent. The beach is also beautiful... More

This place is absolutely stunning. From the moment you walk in, you feel extra special and realize that you are in for a treat. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with great views of the pool/private beach. The pool itself is a highlight - its an infinity pool which is slightly heated in the winter and has brilliant views of... More

Great hotel in possibly the best location in Mauritius. We stayed in a beach suite on the ground floor. Would recommend a ground floor room as it is so easy to be able to walk from the beach straight in and awesome views. The room was very clean and house keeping came twice a day (which probably isn't necessary but... More

Being our first visit to Mauritius and on such a special occasion, the hotel came very highly recommended and we soon found out why! On arrival we were personally welcomed by the General Manager and a team of his staff... More

We initially visited Sands in 2012 and were extremely impressed as can be seen by my original review. Since then the hotel has been refurbished and is now even better. On arrival in our room we were greeted with a welcome back display and a fruit basket. A lovely touch, indeed! The suites (all accommodation is in suite format) have... More

Fabulous suite, very clean, spacious and comfortable. All the staff were very professional, smart in presentation and friendly - nothing was ever too much trouble. ThEy are probably the most professional and efficient we have ever known. This was a major factor in us having such a relaxing time. The food in the main restaurant is buffet style enabling you...
