I read some bad reviews on tp about this hotel, but we can't agree to any of the mentioned points. Our stay was like beeing in paradise. There are only few rooms, all perfectly furnished with a romantic bathtub, super comfortable bed and great seaview (all rooms have seaview). Additionally, the breakfast and dinner are amazing. For breakfast you get... More

Arriving at about 0500 in the morning from the overnight flight, you are bound to be a bit groggy, but even the immigration officers at SSR airport in Mauritius greet you with a smile. After about an hours drive we arrived at the Cardinal. Again we were warmly greeted, offered juice, coffee and pastries, and a shower. We then snoozed... More

This is a super small hotel for anyone who is looking for peace and quiet in a superb location. All 13rooms have a sea view. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the penthouse suite for 2 days, it is amazing, fantastic balcony with private plunge pool. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and with more staff...

When booking this hotel, didn't realize how small it was. But what a pleasant surprise! The entry way is very unnoticeable and low-key, but once inside it is so quaint and classy. With only 13 rooms in total, it makes a very quiet and romantic getaway place. Not for someone who likes parties and crowds. Room is very spacious and... More

This is our last day of a 10 day holiday at Le Cardinal. We have had a beautiful and memorable holiday. The setting is amazing! Small Luxury 5* hotel, all rooms facing the sea on the beach. Always able to access a plush sun bed either on the grass by the infinity pool or a few yards away on the... More

My wife and I stayed here at the end of November & beginning of December for 12 nights on a half board basis. The location right on the beach is lovely, though the sand in front of the hotel is full of dead coral and is hard on your feet. We found ALL the hotel staff, without exception, to be... More

My husband and I stayed at Le Cardinal for the second part of our honeymoon in Mauritius. Having come from a much larger hotel it was wonderful to have some privacy and quiet but still all the service and luxury you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. We were fortunate enough to get our room upgraded and our suite was... More

This is a lovely hotel although with all the hype on trip advisor it would be almost impossible to live up to, so maybe my expectations were too high. Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, friendly staff. The food is a big part of the experience here but sometimes felt they were trying a bit too hard, for example the vegetables were... More

My husband and I chose this hotel for honeymoon after reading the reviews, and we were so glad we made the right choice! Friendly and caring staff, top-quality food luxury setting, beautiful beach with crystal-clear sea waves - they all made our 5-day stay absolutely joyful and memorable.
