Enjoy the photos, hopefully we'll be able to get some videos up soon too.
When we get a bit more time we'll write a bit about the things we've done in the month or so we've been away so far. For now, hopefully the photos give some idea as to what we've been up to - sorry about some of the lame photo titles, in order to publish a photo on …
... island of La Reunion send their love to you and invite you to visit them soon. We only had two transfers this year, but they really enjoyed them and appreciated the opportunity to practice their English. Have a safe trip home, and may the next few months see in all of us a deep rededication to the mission our Loving Father has given us and the incredible way of life awaiting a suffering and blinded humanity that will soon experience the Kingdom of God. ...
... was going to come and get my order, which I partly got shortly after that. It had taken 1 hour and 40 minutes to get someone's attention and get the main course. I ordered the entrée right away, (which, where I come from, is not the "entrée" – meaning opening or beginning of the meal but the main course) did not even bother with the hors-d’oeuvres. Once I got the main course – a beef stew which tasted very nice – I didn’t see the server for another ...
... The total of my purchases came to about 12 US dollars. Haha gotta love the Mauritian Rupee.
So we got to this beautiful beach, cracked open some Smirnoff ices, and met up with every other student from the ship pretty much. The weather was beautiful and all was fun until the one girl I was with finished up her 26r of rum before 930am, and was pretty much the drunkest person I’ve ever seen in my life. So at around 10am we decided we needed to get Sonia back to ...
... about 60 miles long and 30 miles wide. The beaches are amongst the most beautiful in the world and the turquoise sea in the lagoons is a delight. The temperature of the sea is between 24 - 28 degrees celsius depending on the season ( winter - june to september.......Summer - october to may ). What would also impress the visitors is the diversity of the population on the island, there ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sands Resort & Spa Flic En Flac
We have just returned from this wonderful hotel. Most of my comments are positive with just a few minor negatives.
The Perfect Honeymoon
We have just come back from a perfect 2 week honeymoon at
The Sands Resort. As it was a special occasion we paid more
than we usually do for a holiday, but we weren't disappointed.
The service was fantastic, the staff friendly, the hotel setting stunning, the food was lovely & the entertainment spot on...
I honestly feel like we picked the best hotel on the island.
Bel servizio, ma il mare...
L'albergo è piccolo e accogliente, ideale per chi non ama i posti troppo affollati e caotici.
Ottimo il servizio, la pulizia delle camere, molto spaziose e tutte con vista sul mare e il ristorante ( i camerieri sono un pò troppo solerti...non fatevi portare via il piatto prima di aver finito...)
Aspetto dolente: l'albergo è situato in un punto dove non c'è barriera corallina e sono state messi dei frangiflutti proprio davanti alla spaggia...il mare non è proprio quello che si apprezza quando si va a Mauritius.
Carenti le attività sportive.
Per chi va ad agosto: l'albergo è in una posizione abbastanza ventosa, in serate fredde o giornate senza sole non si riesce a stare in spiaggia.
Stunning hotel, the photographs on its website do not do it enough justice, especially if you arrive as we did when the sun was rising over the moutains, it takes your breath away. As experienced and well travell as we were, we did not expect the marvellous service we recieved there, the staff were very friendly, service fast and efficient, food excellent and varied every night and the rooms spotlessley clean and well serviced twice a day. the evening entertainment must have been put up a notch since previous reviews as although we saw the same acts a couple of times, every evening was different singers or floorshows. Well worth a visit for the quiet beach and great watersports as well. 5 stars.
After reading reviews on this site my girlfriend and I decided that this sounded the right hotel for us; within our budget and we were certainly not disappointed. The whole experience from the minute we arrived was of having found our own little bit of paradise. The hotel itself is in the best position on the Flic en Flac coastline, nicely secluded with its own sheltered bay. There aren't too many rooms so there is a feeling of a small personal hotel and the attentive service adds to this. Whilst it could be true that the food in the evenings does repeat itself, the variety on offer does make it difficult to find fault.
We spent 10 days at the Sands, Flic Flac and probably will not return there. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food rather repetitive. The beach was excellent but beach loungers were booked quite early in the morning. Drinks and food are grossly overpriced compared to the prices at the local supermarket (which is a good 10 minutes drive by car). If you dont have a car, you are sort of stuffed.. Ditto with the laundry.
Sands resort mauritius absolutely wonderful
We came back from our second visit to Maruitius last month, last time went to Maritim this time to the Sands Resort and it was great. We were not sure what to expect as it is not in British brochures. The rooms were large with a separate dressing area and large bathroom.
It is quite a compact hotel and the walk from rom to beach was a matter of seconds. Very quite hotel to stay, not many children.
Good sheltered area of sea for swimming and lovely clean beach
The staff were incredilbly attentive and food very good and varied.
We hired bikes one day to explore but to get out of the area it is mainly uphill! Hotel is a couple of miles from nearest town
Horse riding can be arranged locally.
Got married here
I just wanted to say that we were married here in Aug 2004 and had the perfect wedding. We were the only couple getting married in the 2 weeks we were there and were therefore given fantastic attention at all times. The staff were very helpful and the food delicious.
It was a perfect hotel for a lovely peaceful wedding and a relaxing honeymoon. We found lots to do around the island and hired a jeep and went over to the east coast armed with a map.
We did have trouble with our wedding planner who informed my mother she could get her a fanastic hand made typical mauritius gift for us. My mother gave her the money and the present never turned up and the lady in question (Maria) has since left. So be careful. We tried not to let this ruin our holiday.
this hotel was every thing we expected for the price and was a great location for our honeymoon the room was a good size with big bathrooms and walk in clothes storage
We stayed at the sands resort in Flic-en-Flac for 2 weeks in May 2005, staying half board. We were looking for a hotel on the west coast (best area for weather and beaches) that didn't haven't many children and where we could enjoy sports and relaxation after a hard year of work. We found it all at this resort.
