Having just spent 17 days at this hotel, I have nothing but great things to say. The location is just stunning, with the most amazing view over Tamarin Bay; a lovely well-kept private beach, and fantastic heated infinity pool. Our room was lovely, with a stunning sea view, and was kept immaculate throughout our stay. Everyone single one of the staff were absolutely amazing. Jerome, Selven, Sandia and Kelly in the restaurant; Steeven, Abishek and Arjoon in the bar; and Brenda in the hotel lobby just to name a few. The hotel should be very proud of them all. I can honestly say I’ve never before encountered such friendly and helpful hotel staff and I’ve travelled quite a bit. The hotel is a fair distance from Flic En Flac centre - around 25-30 minutes walk for us; however, we found that taxis were not overly expensive and a reasonable option for us to travel to nearby shops and restaurants. If you intend to explore the island, a rental car would be useful. Overall, I can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. Although this was my first trip to Mauritius, it certainly won’t be be last and I’ll definitely be paying a visit to this hotel again upon my return.

We spent 8 days in Room 111 at the Sands Resort from 6th to 14th November. The Resort is in a quiet, nice location with easy access to the private beach and to the bigger beaches and the town of Flic en Flac. What was most impressive was the service we received from the staff. Two instances stand out very clearly 1. On the second day of our stay, my wife was taken ill in the middle of the night. Although there was some initial miscommunication leading to a delay in getting her the medical attention she needed, once that situation was resolved the standard of care and concern expressed by the reception staff for the rest of our stay was touching. 2. Our stay coincided with my wife’s birthday which we celebrated with a seafood dinner on the beach. Once again, the restaurant staff went out of their way to make it special culminating a cake that was presented to her. The standard of the food in the speciality restaurants is of a very high order. My recommendation in the Spice restaurant is the Lamb Fillet with sweet chili crust, spicy ribs «en crépinette», piquillo peppers stuffed with potato chutney and gravy, The lamb was cooked to perfection, so tender and tasty, I ordered it twice during our stay as we both did the Hot Coconut Souffle which was perfect. Similarly the Special Lobster menu of the Pink Peppercorn restaurant was also a treat, well worth the additional expense. The meals in the Tamarind buffet were adequate but I feel that less would be more, a reduction of the items on offer of a standard at least coming close to their specialty restaurants would round off all the good things about staying at the Sands. So finally, a big thank you to the duty managers, Alvin and Vinod, the great reception team, particularly, Brenda and Yeshni (hope I spelt that right), Jerome and Kaushal in the Spices restaurant, the assorted Sunitas in the Tamarind buffet (there was more than one!), the staff in the Dolphin Bar and all the housekeeping staff. Thank you all, we will be back sometime, if only to pop in and say hello!

We come to the end of a 10 day stay at this beautiful hotel. 10 days of impeccable service from every single member of staff, on every occasions on every day - you all need to be very proud of yourselves - absolutely amazing. This includes Devina and Soudesh on reception, to all the great table service staff, the great bar staff, including Avi and Ruddy, the lovely happy egg/omelette lady, the guys in the boat house, particularly Terri. Not forgetting the lovely ladies in the Spa, particularly Kaatee and Devi, who gave a gorgeous massage, and the supper cheery lady who runs the little gift shop. All of you, and all the many not mentioned, have made this a real holiday to remember 😁❤️. Our room was really lovely, and very spacious, which I would imagine is the same for all the rooms, and kept beautifully clean by all the housekeeping staff. It was such a bonus to do all water activities we did without any additional charges. These were glass bottom boat trips, snorkel trips, kayaking, and water skiing, and great that they could be done multiple times. This has to go down as one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. Thank you.
