The Sands Resort
Wolmar, Flic En Flac, Mauritius

Beach view rooms
Free wireless Internet access
Great food

No elevator
Birds during breakfast

Just came back from a romantic 2-week honeymoon in Mauritius with my lovely wife at this beautiful resort. We stayed at the third floor on half-board. Our room was very private and quiet and romantic. It had a fabulous view of the beach although I was later told on that all rooms did face the beach but I still think it was special. Our room was cleaned twice a day. It was well-appointed and had complete amenities. Bed was huge and comfortable. Bathroom was nicely decorated and had the necessary toiletries. The room accommodation would have been perfect except for the fact that the hotel did not have any elevator for easy access to the different floors. I am quite heavy and so is my wife so going up and down from our room to the beach was exhausting.

Every meal was delicious and the menu changes every night that we really didn’t feel fed up with the food that they serve. The food was very generous and more than sufficient for the both of us that there was no need to order extra. That was a good thing because the drinks, on the other hand, were quite expensive so most of our pocket money went to buying cocktail drinks and wine. If there is anything that we didn’t quite like, that would be the pricey drinks and the birds that flock the restaurant during breakfast. It’s not like we don’t love birds but having them eat breakfast with us is another thing that we were not prepared for.

Another treat that I liked about the Sands, however minimal, is that they offer free wireless Internet access. It was not that fast and reliable but at least I got to send emails to my family while we were having our vacation just to let them know we are fine and enjoying our time together.

Overall, we had a pleasurable time. We might go back again especially if they invest in an elevator.
