We recently returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday at our favourite place, the Sands Resort. It was great to see all the friendly faces of our old friends we had made over the past ten years since we were married in the lovely grounds. This is our first visit back since the resort was totally renovated, the rooms and bathrooms...

We had a marvellous time at Sands. We had a room downstairs, with a cosy terrace and twenty steps to the beach. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. We felt so welcome because of the amazing staff: every single person was nice and friendly! The hotel has not many rooms so it's perfectly quiet for an enjoyable, relaxing...

The room was absolutely cool and very well cleaned. There is a small town nearby ie Flic en Flac and we even walked within 30min (very relaxed as you can do it in 20min). There is a bus about 10-15min away from the hotel. We visited in May and the rain was a little bit on the heavy side for...

We stayed at Sands for a holiday in April - May 17. This place surpassed all our expectations when it came to hospitality and service.

We stayed here for seven nights at the end of April. What was excellent : The setting. This must be the most beautiful setting for any hotel. Sunsets are stunning. The resort is not near anything. Not even a shop so if you want nightlife on your doorstep this is not for you, but it does mean it's quiet and...

I agree with all the previous reviews. We arrived at 11pm and the welcoming staff all came out to greet us and a delicious cold supper with a glass of champagne was awaiting us in our room.
