It was an amazing week, from the time we got to the resort, until the time we left. We received a warm welcome once we stepped into the resort, we were offered a drink, and in few minutes our room was ready. A lovely lady (can't remember the name unfortunately) escorted me and

The excellence of the customer service during our recent two week stay at The Sands overrode any other niggles (like the water as mentioned in other reviews). Nothing was too much trouble and we were effortlessly made to feel very special and important. A particularly nice

Dear kahraba, Thank you for your excellent comments with respect to the facilities, beach, view and activities. We have also taken note of your appreciation of the variety of the buffet, cleanliness and entertainment. We have shared your experience with regards to the boat house services to the management company for their review. As for water, as you rightly said, we offer one bottle per person on a daily basis. As one would expect, all the drinks consumed in our food and beverage outlets including the beach are charged as per consumption. We regret that you based your review of our spa services solely on the prices, which are in the range compared to similar hotels of the same category on the island. We sincerely hope that you will cherish the good memories of your stay among us. Kind regards Kamal Nundloll General Manager

We didn't snorkel but guests at the hotel did. I understand that you need to swim out to the reef but there aren't that many fish there, I believe people actually took the Sands boat trip to snorkel.

Hi, we booked through a travel agency so our process was different. However, I absolutely understand your concerns - I've never heard of anything like this! I would respond that I don't feel safe doing this and ask about alternatives. Maybe you can transfer a deposit instead? Sorry, that's all I got.

Hi, the only other restaurants that we noticed were located in other hotels..... The hotel buffet is good and varied - we ate there every night...there is a separate a la carte restaurant, but I can't comment on cost or quality as we didn't use it.

I am quite sure it is as the hotel and the staff are so accommodating. If you prearrange I am sure they will make a plan. Enjoy your holiday

FnB prices at the resort will be on par with UK. Though being half board already works well to save you some money. For excursions you will need money mainly for transport only as there is no entry fee for most places, except Casela park or of you want to try water sports at Ile aux Cerfs. Btw congrats on choosing Sands, it's a fantastic resort. I was there for my own honeymoon and we had a ball.
