Very good price Great rooms and pool All inclusive on drinks and spa But very poor service Worst animations ever The people in charge of the animation do it for themselves and play among themselves..clients of the hotel have to sit and wait for their turn

The hotel rooms were very nice and clean. It has its private beach which is very nice and well maintained. However the service was very poor, for a single request we had to call them multiple times. There was no wifi in the rooms. Note: I have stayed here in Feb-2014, however I didn't find Feb-2014 in the 'When did... More

We arrived with full expectations we would be able to fully enjoy our honeymoon holiday. The staff members especially the Receptionist Saline were all friendly, however the rooms were ghastly. The 1st room was really damp that it triggered off my wife's asthma so we changed to the 2nd room only to come back after dinner to find an infestation... More

I actually traveled to Mauritius long back and we stayed at La Plantation. It was such a great experience. The room was beautiful and situated among the lush greens, overlooking the gardens. The hotel beach was clean and the beach bar had some great cocktails! The restaurant serves a lavish breakfast and food was awesome. The service was really quick... More

I had a room with Pool view, (though people prefer beach facing - I don't). I can't tell you how beautiful it was! Simply amazing. Though the food wasn't good for Veggies, but they had varieties to make sure you aren't left hungry. Live orchestra for fine dining in the eve, water sports, spa, swimming pools - it had everything... More

Lovely location, great staff. The hotel was just a little tired. We were told it was closing for a refit in April but don't know if it happened. Had a room in one of the smaller buildings with a river view, everything we could want or expect, except a bottle opener 😎

This hotels location is amazingly beautiful. Right on the beach. However the whole experience could be better through better service by the staff. Housekeeping was not up to standard. Towels were changed and beds made but that was it. Bathrooms were not cleaned nor swept. It was also extremely annoying that the complimentary tea and coffee was not replaced on... More
