The resort is about 60 minutes ride from the airport (we had a private transfer). We knew ahead of our trip that check-in was at 3.00pm, so, being prepared, we had our swimwear in... More

I rarely write reviews…but want to say “Thank you so much!” to both management and the dedicated staff of Sands Resort & Spa for the blissful 2 weeks spent there over the past Christmas holidays. We have stayed in various 4 and 5 star hotels in Mauritius previously…but Sands is just perfect! If you are looking for an idyllic location,... More

We have recently returned from our sixth visit to Mauritius and our third visit to the Sands. Over the past few years we have stayed in a variety of 3, 4 and 5 star hotels across the island however our return to the Sands confirmed our opinion it is the best. This opinion is based on location, size of hotel,... More

We have spent Christmas and New Year in this fantastic hotel, and feel that this has been a total paradise. The possibility of a morning swim on the beach all alone, the wonderful meals, the delicate rooms, the complimentary snacks and soft drinks brought to you on the beach, and the staff! Our needs were seen by each and everyone... More

Our stay at the Sands was very relaxing, everything we could possibly need was at hand. The pool is great, the beach and scenery is wonderful, and the water sports the hotel offers are special! Don't think we could have chosen a better spot in the island. But, my wife ate a fish in one of the restaurants in the... More

We've been around the world and stopped at a lot of places. You cannot get better than this for a first class, relaxing place with terrific food and excellent service.
