The cocktail bar in Sands is fab. A great selection expertly mixed by the very talented Karounen. He takes pride is his work and always presents the drinks beautifully .... Lovely floral display for the ladies. We'll follow up with a full review on the hotel when we get home.

After visiting Sands the previous two years we were intrigued this year to see the changes which had taken place over a period of three months. We had so enjoyed our previous visits, so this year we had brought our family with us to share the Sands experience making six of us in total. Sands reopened on the 16th August... More

We enjoyed our week-long stay at the The Sands Resort. The staff was very courteous and the room was very comfortable (aircon also worked very well for hot Mauritius days!). We were on full board (breakfast and dinner), and the food was mainly served buffet style, there was adequate amounts and you could find something you liked if certain dishes... More

This is a lovely resort in a somewhat isolated location, however we would recommend hiring a driver and renting a car (we did both and covered the whole island in day trips). We found breakfast good, evening meal adequate, the spices dining was better. The children's menus were good. There is a good choice of water sports, tennis. The pools... More

Our Trip to Mauritius at the Sands Resort - was the most beautiful experience I've had on holiday. It was like waking up in heaven.. The Resort, service, food, spa cannot be faulted. They were very attentive to all details and we were able to relax and enjoy each day. Thank you.

May 2014 was our 5th fabulous visit to the Sands. It's always an amazing feeling walking into the hotel and looking out over Tamarin Bay and the Le Morne peninsular. A sense of calmness and our relaxation can begin knowing we are going to be looked after for the next 9 days. Our ground floor room was on the Tamarin... More

During our stay it was my wife's 50th birthday and I arranged for us to have a private breakfast in the beachfront gazebo with waiter service ( which was wonderful). The housekeeping service... More

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in May. We usually travel long haul regularly and like our holidays to be active. But this time we needed a quiet and restful one. We've been to MRU several times and know the island well. We chose 'Sands' because of TAs favourable reviews and its location: we wanted to be on... More
