Exclusive suite was fantastic - loads of space, separate room for our daughter. Hotel facilities all excellent, service could not have been better or friendlier. Great buffet food. Lovely beach, very quiet, never felt crowded out. Lots of free trips such as glass bottom boat, snorkeling on the coral reef and kayaking all free. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday

This was our second stay at the Sands and we loved it just as much as our first, five years ago. In terms of facilities there are better hotels in Mauritius, particularly if you have children with you, but what sets the Sands head and shoulders above any other hotel I've ever visited is its team of staff who are utterly superb. If you want to go somewhere you cam completely switch off, relax and unwind, this is the place to do it.

Everything was just perfect! Huge, clean rooom, comfortable bed, nice beach. We liked the free activities, snorkelling, waterski and especially the guided bicyle-trip to Flic en Flac. Hope to come back one day!

Alles war ok auusser das Meeresblick aus unserem Suite bzw. balkon, was ich bestellt habe und würde geantwortet alle unsere Zimmer haben sie Meeresblicke.. Ok. Im Tat war nicht , weil alle Kokosbäume so hoch waren , dass Sie den Blick verdeckt hat. . Haben wir uns natürlich beschwert und würde gesagt fast alle Zimmer so, vielleicht wäre einen oder anderm mit teil frei Blick aber ist fast den selben . Es hat uns geärgert auch für das Geld was wir bezahlt haben .Hätten wir vielleicht woanders besser Situationen gehabt. Das Hotel liegt an einem Bucht wo es mit wenig Wind die ganz schmutz, Müll und Algen auf dem Strand kommen. dan hast du keine Lust ins wasser zu gehen

Hôtel vraiment superbe tant au niveau de l’emplacement, des chambres, de la qualité des buffets (petit-déjeuner et dîner) et de la disponibilité et gentillesse du personnel. Cet hôtel a rendu notre séjour encore plus magique, merci beaucoup!

Gutes Preisleistungsverhältnis

Wir genossen die nicht so grosse Anlage, die eine gewisse familiäre Atmosphäre verbreitet, den freundlichen Service und die schöne Lage. Es ist kein 5*-Resort, da müsste an gewissen Punkten gearbeitet werden. Alles in allem fühlten wir uns aber sehr wohl! Besser als vor 3 Jahren in einem renommierten 5*-Hotel weiter im Norden!
