5 out of 5
Très joli resort, animé par une formidable équipe dont Milka, Violet, Thomas. Très bonne ambiance, nous nous sommes vraiment détendus (par contre je déconseille le grand hôtel Club voisin que nous avons visité...) Un des points forts du Sands est aussi la cuisine, particulièrement délicieuse
