The Sands Resort lived up to expectations. It is a beautiful resort with excellent rooms and service. The only downside we found was that the food did not really live up to the quality of the rest of the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel on Valentines night and the selection and quality of the food was poor. This... More

Having done a reasonable amount of research on which area to stay in Mauritius, it seemed sensible to stay on the South West, and Flic en Flac was favourite. Being on my own I realised that it was going to be quite expensive for accommodation. I looked at cheaper options but decided that the Sands Resort Hotel was the correct... More

Myself and my partner just spent 12 days at The Sands, having booked through Mercury. We were a little apprehensive after reading quite a few negative comments on Trip Advisor. Having traveled a great deal over the last 30 years, I would say with confidence that I can balance between what a great resort is versus a poor one. I... More

Just came back from a short trip to Mauritius (21-27 February), and I'd like to share my impressions while they are fresh. Immediately clarify that I’m able to objectively evaluate all the pros and cons of travel in general and of the hotel where we stayed, in particular. I used to travel a lot and stay in nice places: first,... More

Perfect from the beginning to the end! Entering the Sands we were greeted warmly, then immediately swept up by the gorgeous gleaming blue seafront and infinity pool laying before us. Yes we reached our paradise. The Sands is a top boutique hotel, top VIP service, excellent cuisine and all rooms have sea views and there is free Wifi everywhere! The... More

Positives Stayed for a week and nothing was too much trouble, fantastic service and staff, lovely rooms, great beach facilities, spa and gym. Lots to keep you occupied. Negatives I found it a little expensive to eat and drink there, I paid around £16.00 for a double J&B whisky on ice and £5.00 for a small fresh juice, buffet is... More

We unfortunately only stayed one night here on bed and breakfast to enjoy the end of our holidays. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable. The infinity pool was just incredible and the staff were all extremely accommodating. I was annoyed that the water skiing was cancelled due to weather and that this wasn't rearranged for when the weather was... More

Small resorts but well design, and great customer service. The location is ideal for a good relaxation therapy paired with good food and good view... Go to the bar and either ask for a "Mauritian Smile" or "Mauritian Beauty" (cocktails). You will be surprised with the quality cocktails that the staff produce and also the Rum that Mauritius produces... I... More

Since our seventh visit a year ago the Sands has been thoroughly renovated. Rooms have been painted in new nice colors and decorated with artistic photos from Mauritius, there are new tiles on the floor... More
