Stayed there from 1st to 5th Oct. Amazing private beach. Decent rooms. Good service. The only bad experience I had was of a late check out because my flight was at 9:00 pm in the night. The staff kept calling and pushing me to vacate the rooms. I later realized that they were still unoccupied till we left. The dining... More

Rooms are well designed, this must be the only room I have been in where, from the desk, you have a wonderful view out to the gardens and the ocean beyond. Bed is really comfortable and the bathroom is spacious with double sink, monsoon shower and a huge bathtub. As I am unable to control myself at a buffet, we... More

Let me start with the good - the rooms are large and comfortable - the beds are good, the bathroom is luxurious with a large tub and a shower and double sinks, and each room has a nice porch, many overlooking the sea. The hotel has several restaurants that all serve decent food and the hotel rate is reasonable. So... More

Excellent well maintained infrastructure (heated and standard swimming pools, saunas, hammam, spas, beach), well trained and friendly staff and great view on the beachfront. The weaknesses : relatively expensive for Mauritian standards (everything you drink or eat costs at least two to three times more than in a good - not five starts though, of course - restaurant in town),...

Without doubt the kindest, most helpful and attentive hotel staff assembled in any hotel I ever stayed in. The highest compliment I can pay is that the service feels genuine rather than "forced". The resort is well laid-out, and all rooms (I think) have an ocean view. You never feel on top of your neighbours and the beach sun loungers... More

Let me talk about some good things about this place – Very friendly staff at reception (can’t forget to name Mr Sivadev Sewgol), very nice environment all around, many options for food. They do offer some good water activities (with weather permitting and you knowing swimming for few of the activities). Every day there are some shows planned, which is... More

I have stayed in many hotels / resorts in Mauritius. The Intercontinental Resort is one of them. Having stayed there twice, I can say with surety that it is certainly not the best of hotels in Mauritius. The rooms - particularly the ones on the Ground floor level are quite dingy. The split levels may be considered good by some... More

Really stunning location. Crystal clear water. Clean beaches. Superb staff. Great food. A privilege to stay here. I was here for a work conference for four days. The conference facilities were good. And the whole programme was well run. Would love to return here for a holiday - amazing place! A little slice of paradise!

Dear JoFo74UK, Greetings from Intercontinental Mauritius Balaclava Fort!

The hotel and location are perfect, with a coral reef right next to the beach. Having said that, be careful, I kicked a Stonefish (unfortunately on the first day) which like these conditions, but after 15 hours in hospital I was right as rain and didn't really think anything more of it, just unlucky. The hotel, as with everything else... More
