First impression when arriving in the huge reception area is "Wow"! However, it seems that the hotel needs quite a bit of work, it is a HUGE hotel, and it must be difficult to maintain such a property, the beach is not clean, the ocean quite murky, the river that flows into the ocean probably carries a lot of debris...

Stayed at the hotel, had a sea view room. very poor welcome and moreover they have 400 varieties of food... More

We stayed here between January 8th to 15th. Unfortunately the weather was against us ans we spent the week waiting for Cyclone Bansi to make land. However the staff at the hotel made sure we were well looked after. The hotel is tired and the rooms need a revamp. The location of the hotel is fantastic and when the hotel... More

We visited La Plantation on the 5th January to the 12th January 2015 1,5 hours drive from Airport, we were well received and made our way to our sea view room, which was breathtakingly beautiful. We loved the beach and pools (one of the pools is missing tiles on the bottom and my daughter got a cut from that, it... More

My mom, husband and I travelled to Mauritius on a budget so we had to do some good research before we took the last decision. We had to decide what we wanted from our holiday and we finally decided upon La Plantation for various reasons. First of all, location, we wanted to be able to see some of the island,... More

We only had breakfast in the hotel so cant comment on the buffet dinners. Breakfast was mediocre. Wifi only available in the lobby - hence... More
