We had three nights in Sugar Beach before transferring to Sands Suites and, boy, were we happy we did it that way round! SS felt much more exclusive, the location was much more secluded (with no beach hawkers - yippee!) and the whole vibe was gentler somehow. The buffet is remarkably good, although you'll need a break from time to time. Avoid Sands Suites a la carte Spices restaurant, which was simply terrible - desperately slow and much of the food was completely tasteless. Go to Peppercorns at SS, or the Japanese and Indian restaurants at Maradiva next door instead (where you get a 650 rupees allowance if you're on half board at SS) - simply superb. Prepare to be asked for your room number every time you meet a member of staff, and to be reminded you're on half board all the time - very annoying but get over it and you'll have a great holiday! Everyone goes to bed at 9.30pm, which is a bit weird, especially when the nightly band (which, despite my natural cynicism, was generally good!) continue till 10! The rooms are great, with superb bathrooms.

Room Tip: Go for the cheaper ground floors unless you want to sit on your balcony looking out to sea!

My husband booked this lovely four star hotel for our honeymoon after carefully researching and reading reviews. This is because I originally wanted to go for the five star Lux Belle Mare but it was too expensive and he knew that he must find something to meet my expectations.

On arrival, the reception staff were very friendly and we were sat down and served drinks immediately. The sight of the infinity pool that blends into the ocean was stunning. Our room was very big with a walk in closet which is a plus point for me!

Food - we went for two buffet sessions, Chinese and barbecue. The first one was mediocre in standard coming from a Chinese ethnicity. The barbecue was beyond my expectations. There are counters which served freshly grilled meat and I must say that it tasted very fresh! Yes, the restaurant have a no short pants policy for dinner which was made obvious if one bothers to read the card on the hotel room table on entry. I don't understand why some people make such a big fuss about it. We went all the way out to the nearest shopping mall to buy a set of pants because we respect the hotel policy. If you are in a Western four star hotel which has such a policy you wouldn't think twice about disrespecting the hotel or its guests. Just something for consideration.

Activities - This hotel has affiliation with Sundivers, a diving school company which I highly recommend if you are thinking about learning how to dive. It is cheaper than other diving schools, and transport is arranged. We also went for swimming with the dolphins arranged by the hotel which was a fantastic experience BUT be aware that you will be paying double the price compared to arranging it externally. There are plenty of free activities too including snorkeling, windsurfing, glass bottom boat, kayaking just to name a few.

Spa - I booked for the relaxing massage and facial (60 min each). The massage was great but if you want something to address painful muscles I recommend going for the the deep muscle massage as the pressure applied was moderate at best. The facial was very thorough including cleansing, toning, scrubbing, streaming, mask, facial massage and moisturiser with an emulsion. The only downfall of this was the choice of music and the bright light during the facial which interrupted with relaxation.

Gym - The gym equipment was very complete and what was impressive is that they have an on site personal trainer who is available during working hours to show you how to use the equipment. If you are new to weight training they also offer free personalised service with a printed workout and meal plan which you will have to pay in most gyms.

Dear Woon E,

Let me start by congratulating you for your wedding and am indeed happy to read that you had an excellent stay among us.

Your mouth watering description of the facilities at the Sands Suite Resort & Spa can only encourage a visit at the resort and thereby sample the spacious suites, infinity pool, water sports, spa and gym facilities. I wish to thank you and your husband to have taken our dress code policy at heart going all the way out to buy trousers for dinner. This information is available on our website and the aim of the long trousers in the evening for gentlemen is to keep up the upscale atmosphere our patrons wish to experience and enhance.

Our boat house offers a wide array of water sports of which a few are chargeable including the Dolphin watch – our boat house contractors are equipped with the latest state of art equipment and most importantly are registered and insured operators, thereby ensuring minimum of safety and security standards for all the people indulging in such activities. On a similar note, Sundivers are our preferred partners when it comes to diving.

Hope to see you here soon,

Kind regards
Kamal Nundloll
Resort Manager

This is a large hotel that mostly delivers what it promises, that is a good 4 stars service. The setting is splendid and the entrance aligned on the Morne spectacular. Rooms are large, comfortable and well equipped. The pool and the beach very pleasant. Front desk is efficient if quite mechanical. So everything would be fine if not considering food and drinks. The main buffet is really at a poor level both for breakfast and dinner, not significantly better than a good cafeteria. Minimal choice, nothing original and mostly tasteless. An exception for the bread though that is fresh and tasty. Going to the "Spices" restaurant doesn't help as the quality of food there is in no way in adequacy with the prices. On top of that service is highly inefficient and not really friendly, specially at the bar where we always felt like disturbing the waiters. In summary not a bad place for the price if you like that kind of large structures but seriously limit your expectations on the food and drinks side.
