We had a great time at the Sands. It is a nice small hotel, with an excellent service. The whole hotel is maintained very well and the staff is always around to serve and help with a smile. You feel like you have family around you, that is always around to make your stay even better. I also got a birthday cake, such a nice surprise. Thank you again :-) This place is like paradise and very quiet, that you can start to enjoy and relax straight when you walk into the lobby. The stunning view with the Le Morne Mountain, immediately feels you welcomed. Very clean and spacious rooms. A lot of activities during the day, on the water or around the resort. Also the Spa is worth at least one visit. We highly recommend this gem and will hopefully have the chance to come back one day. Thank you to the whole Sands team for making us feel home.

My wife and I went to Sands for our honeymoon and her birthday. For the duration of our entire stay the service we received from the staff was absolutely incredible! The staff truly go over and beyond to ensure you are happy with everything you want or need, which is the cherry on top of a beautiful holiday. Artee, Rajah, Keertee, Vinesh, Soudesh, Indar, Nalinda and Aurelie were all so friendly and accommodating and made our stay very special. The suite we had was perfect for us with a beautiful view. My wife was welcomed with a surprise birthday cake and our suite was beautifully decorated. The pool, spa, and activities available were all perfect. And finally, the food was amazing too! I strongly recommend Sands Suites Resort & Spa for your holiday in Mauritius and would love to stay there again. My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice to stay here. The hotel and location are brilliant, but it was the faultless customer service that was number one for us at Sands.

We have loved our time here at the Sands Resort. This is our first time travelling to Mauritius but it will not be our last and we will book again with Sands which is a first for us, we try not to stay at the same hotels & this just demonstrates how fantastic this hotel and the staff are. Rooms - all the rooms are large spacious suites. We had a beachfront overlooking the beach with amazing views. Staff - genuinely the staff in this hotel are the very best. They cannot do enough for you and want you to have the very best stay and experience. Facilities- the infinity pool is amazing with sweeping views over the beach. Plenty of activities for you to join in and do at the boat house if you want - equally if you want to just relax no-one hassles you which I love. The bay waiters will look after you and nothing is too much trouble for them. Drinks, food they will take very good care of you. This is an amazing hotel in an amazing location but I really do need to shout out about the wonderful staff who will make sure you have the best holiday - this is our favourite holiday so far and we highly recommend

We have just returned from 10 nights at Sands and it was even better than we were hoping for. From the moment we arrived, everyone made us feel so welcome and well looked-after. The service was outstanding - particular thanks to Artee, Rajah, Viroshnee and Rayen. Small touches such as the bar staff remembering our room number when we ordered a drink, the chefs remembering how our son likes his eggs cooked at breakfast and his daily ice cream surprise made the service feel very personalised. The setting is absolutely stunning and the view from the pool is unbeatable. We made the most of the glass bottom boat trip a couple of times and loved seeing the dolphins swim alongside us. I can’t recommend this hotel enough and only wish we could have stayed longer!

Our family was lucky to visit the Sands Suites Resort for a number of times when we were still living in Mauritius. We fell in love with the hotel that has such a calm and warm atmosphere and friendly and kind employees. So when we were choosing a hotel for our vacation in Mauritius, it was clear we only want to go to Sands. Thank you Brenda for arranging the booking for us! The facilities are really nice, the entrance with the sea view is just breath taking. We had a room on the second floor, it’s spacious and clean and quiet. You don’t hear other guests in other rooms. The beach is beautiful and not do busy as Sands is the last hotel in Wolmar, so you can really enjoy the peace there. There are enough sun beds so you don’t have to worry about not finding one. Ruddy from the Dolphin bar took very good care for us when on the beach. The food in the restaurants is very good, good choice also. If we wanted something extra for our son, all we had to do was ask, nothing was a problem. All the staff are so freindly and kind, always ready to help. Thank you Selven, Ashvin, Darshana and Akash for being very kind and making sure we have all we need. Special thanks to the sommelier Rajah for organising such a beautiful surprise on the beach: candle lit heart shaped lounges on the beach with sabrage and tasty food (never had sea urchins before!). And the lovely dinner afterwards. You really exceeded our expectations and went an extra mile to make us feel at home away from home! Any time we’ll travel to Mauritius, we’ll only go to Sands! Thank you!

This is a slice of paradise. Amazing hotel and location with a great view on the ocean and the tamarin bay. The other resort have just a view of the ocean and at the sand suit the view is way more nicer. Also the beack and the swimming pool are perfect. And the infinite view from the swimming pool and the ocean is amazing. The all team of the hotel is really professional and dedicated to help you in all your requests. The foods and restaurants are really good and can only recommend this hotel. The suits are great and have really nice size. The spa and gym are really great as well. I just want to go back there!!

A ten day holiday, which was truly amazing from start to finish! We went with another couple and our holiday was one of the best we have ever had. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff! Every single staff member greeted you with a warm welcome and they couldn't do enough for you, nothing was too much trouble, and this enhanced our very perfect stay at the hotel. I won't mention staff by name as I wouldn't want to miss anyone out because everyone was so helpful including the lovely lady that made the perfect poached eggs for me each day. The food was delicious every day (the reason for my holiday weight gain) but so worth it! Even if what you wanted wasn't there they would welcome your requests and would be happy to accommodate. The views were incredibly beautiful. On our entrance to the hotel, the beauty of the place took our breadth away. It wasn't overcrowded so there was no urgency ever to rush and there was always sun loungers available to lie on, with beach towels always available. There were added extras too that the staff organised for us as we were there for my 50th and a special anniversary we had chocolate cake (lots of cake) and the little extras that made it special with flower petals left in the room. We visited many sights of Mauritius and what I liked about it was the the driver of the taxis came with you, to ensure you had the best experience, this was far cheaper than what the rep could offer too. I have an abundance of fabulous photos of this idyllic Island including the beautiful sunsets we saw being on the West of the Island in Flic en Flac. We had a guided walk to Tamerin and a bike ride to Flic en Flac, we also enjoyed the spa during our stay and would thoroughly recommend this, although the steam room was out of order. The treatment rooms were clean and comfortable again with incredible staff. I have regular massages and the one we received was wonderful. We took a boat trip to crystal rock and snorkelled with the fish and we even caught a red snapper on the way and this was bbq'd for us for our lunch Superb memory! We met the most amazing family in Tamerin who will be forever friends! I could go on and on about this beautiful place, but all I would say is if you are considering booking Sands Suite, do it! You will not be disappointed. I am still smiling about our holiday and one day we will most definitely return! Hi to all the staff you made our stay perfect in every way!

Very nice hotel, not too big and therefore kind of familiar. But anyhow with all services needed: Fitness, Spa, Water sports, etc Good buffet for breakfast and lunch, good variety, always following a special motto, repeating after a week. Great service all over; in the restaurant, the concierge, reception, beach service, boat house. The entire staff is very friendly and tries to fulfill all wishes. The rooms are spacious and towards the front. I stayed in the ground floor and enjoyed the little garden and the possibility of direct access to the beach, for a quick swim in the morning. I replied the customer survey during my stay and mentioned 2-3 points that might be improved. The next day, the customer relationship manager got in contact with me to understand my points better. I must admit, I was quite impressed. I enjoyed my stay very much and like to thank the entire staff.
