We stayed for 5 days in the hotel. The only good part is that the resort is very peaceful and quiet. It is a big property but it badly needs a maintenance. We had a sea view deluxe room , the size was good but the rooms was substandard. The flooring was broken. The attitude of the staff is very... More

Stayed for two days at this hotel in May 2014. We had stayed at La Maridien and had loved it but last two days we came to this one. The rooms given to us were very sub standard. We complained about it and so were shifted to a family room which was much better. The best part was that you... More

Well staff were fantastic and ready to help which was a bonus for the hotel but overall I was not satisfied with my room as the tv socket does not work properly and the light bulbs were out too. Food was ok but not a great variety for choice wise. The hotel need a good renovation and I'm sure they... More

Rooms were dirty upon arrival and no duvet covers, had to ask for it. Bathrooms had issues with basins not working. Telephones in rooms only seem to work to reception, sometimes. Menu very limited, there also seems to be a training issue as far as mixing of cocktails are concerned. The management seems to be aware of these and other... More

We stayed here back in October 2013 for about 5 nights. And was a decent hotel for the premium price payed. A bit over hyped i guess. The rooms were nice and spacious but their room service is very slow. We had a dripping refrigerator in our room which was not attended to for our entire stay. Inspite of several... More

I went there with my friends. We were given dirty rooms. The corridors definitely need renovation and had not been cleaned since long. There were cats under our tables while we were taking breakfast. Ducks were in the swimming pool with us while we were swimming. The food variety and quality was good but service is poor.

Stay at La Plantation was good but not very good. Me and my husband decided to go for our second holiday in mauritius. First was Bali and Singapore cruise. Bali was definitely a better option for people who like to go take a walk outside the resort at night which was impossible in mauritius because everything gets shut by 4... More
