So so relaxing. Excellent choice of activities which can be booked via the front desk. Lovely little touches everywhere- we were half board but still received a little food taster with rum each everyday left in the room. Such a clean beach too. We received a free upgrade to dinner on the beach one night as a thank you for...

Stayed for two nights. Extraordinarily friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast and dinner, huge variety of complementary activities including snorkeling trips, water skiing, and beach volleyball! Still very laid back and relaxing, focusing on quality rather than quantity. Looking forward to returning some day!

Stayed for 14 glorious nights on HB basis, top floor room looking towards pool and bar. From arrival to departure we felt superbly comfortable and cared for. Breakfast and dinner buffets were plentiful, full of variety and never boring. Normally we would have tried other restaurants on holiday but never did here. Slight issues with the bar area - not...

What more one wants for a great holiday? :) Weather was beyond our control so won't talk about that. :) Food and the service is probably two things that let the hotel down in my opinion....

On recommendation from our near neighbours we spent a superb 14 night stay at the very beginning of October. Our choice was for the half board option offered by Mercury holidays which was more than adequate for our needs. The food choices each evening were varied and were of the highest standard. We were not disappointed with our allocated accommodation...

Sands was wonderful. We're usually more into self catering, living out of a backpack style travel, but we decided to try something a little different and a little more relaxing for our honeymoon. I'm so glad we did. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, any one of them could help you with pretty much any query and nothing was...
