“Enjoyed my stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I really enjoyed the feel of this hotel. Yes it is located in a quieter part of the island but it is still easy to get around from here.

Being a Thai hotel chain is has a different feel to your traditional Mauritian hotel but in a good way. The hotel is compact and small so you don't feel too far away from any part of the hotel. The rooms are smaller that some other hotels but they are very comfortable and more than sufficient.

We had excellent food here too and enjoyed the traditional Thai spa.

The beach is quite narrow in that part of the island but you can go for long walks if you like. The reef is quite close to shore which I enjoyed as you could see the waves breaking on the reef.

The staff were excellent and service was great.

I think this is a good 4* hotel offering great value for money.

Room Tip: The mountain view rooms are across the road from the resort and quite separate so I would not choose...

A GREAT stay at this resort.
Amazing, helpful staff.
We opted for the full board - and behold - local drinks, (and water) were included!!!
Note: many resorts in Mauritius offer full board, but the drinks and water are not included (the prices for these are exhorbitant at such hotels!)

The resort is located away from the usual tourist spots - so if you are into clubs and malls, then this resort is not good for you.
If you interested in a relaxing beach holiday - Centara is superb!
(Do not expect a huge hotel with extensive grounds like the usual "chain" hotels - I would call Centara - a boutique hotel!)

My only concern was the beach - bathing is very limited as the there are a lot of rocks close to shore. But the pool more than makes up for it.

My daughter was well taken care during our stay!!!

Room Tip: Sea-facing rooms are great, but ground floor rooms not available for families

We stayed at this resort last week for 7 days.

The staff were so welcoming and our room was spacious with an amazing beach and ocean view.

We went for an all inclusive package and wanted for nothing. From food to drinks.

3 restaurants to choose from. Would definately recommend Aqua and Phi restaurants.

The spa was so relaxing I had two treatments there and the back and neck massage was so good.

The hotel was beautifully kept and clean.

Angel dive who organise excursions at the hotel were fabulous. BRUNO organised my first open water dive. He was so soothing and professional that I relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed my dive. He also arranged a catamaran cruise which was very well organised and well worth it.

If relaxation, outstanding service, wifi throughout the resort then this is the hotel for you.

Lovely large pool. Enough sun loungers.

Great taxi driver who gave us a trip to Port Louis and a history lesson too about the island.

An all round great holiday experience. The hotel listens to any feedback and sorts out any issues promptly.

Thank you to the hotel and all the hard working staff for giving us an unforgettable holiday.

My wife and I stayed at Centara Poste Lafayette for a week for our honeymoon in March 2014. The service was excellent, staff attentive and the hotel lived up to and even exceeded our expectations in most departments. I must thank Mr. Mukesh and his team (especially Vishal, Preetam and Kim) for making our stay comfortable and memorable. The Hotel, the beach, the pool, the activities, the staff, all were superb.

We could not have chosen a better hotel or destination to celebrate our honeymoon. We had a great time at the hotel from arrival to departure and we look forward to going back soon. Nothing but the highest praise for this establishment.

Dear Brilio,

Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaires suite à votre séjour parmi nous. L’aqua gym n’est pas la seule activité de la journée, nous proposons les activités nautiques tel que pédalos, kayaks, bateau à fond verre, ainsi que les activités terrestre tel que sortie à vélo, pétanque… merci d’avoir précisé que les lits des chambres ont été rehaussés afin de faciliter les rangements de la valise.

Nous offrons 3 possibilités des restaurants à tous nos clients avec une nourriture variée. Nous profitons de vos commentaires sur les chiens errants pour faire un appel à tous nos futures clients de ne pas nourrir ou d’entretenir les chiens à l’intérieur de l’hôtel afin de ne pas leur donner des mauvaises habitudes.

Nous comprenons votre déception et il est fort regrettable que ces différents points n’ont pas été partagés pendant votre séjour car nous aurions fait le maximum pour vous.

Cordialement

Spent 2 fabulous weeks at this resort, the staff were so friendly and helpful and always on hand if you needed any help. The pool area was amazing looking over the Indian Ocean. Dining was excellent with plenty of choices even though I am a very fussy eater I enjoyed my dining experience during our stay and once again the staff could not have been more helpful. I thoroughly recommend this resort and hope to return in the future.

We stayed at the Centara Poste Lafayette for about 4 nights in September and overall experience in this hotel was fantastic. Personal attenetion and great service from the reception staff to restuarant to the cleaners were awesome. A big thank you to Pritam and Muruga for heir kind hospitality in ensuring our stay was more than comfotable. Food is absolutely divine and the chef Muruga caters for all kinds of cuisine. This hotel is good for honeymooners and and offer overall peace and tranquility and a relaxing break. Thank you once again for making our stay a memorable one - looking forward to another trip to your hotel in the near future. God bless you all.

Room Tip: Ocean facin rooms are excellent as this offers the travellers a beautiful view of the ocean.

My wife and I visited this hotel in January 2014 for our 25th wedding anniversary. First impressions were good. The hotel only has around 80 rooms. We stayed in an Ocean View room. The hotel was only half booked throughout our stay which meant it was extremely quiet and peaceful during the day. Like the hotel it's pool is also small and there were some days when we were the only people in the pool. Jan/Feb/Mar is traditionally 'cyclone' season in Mauritius and we arrived during one which lasted a further two & half days. This hotel is situated on the east side of Mauritius which makes travelling out expensive (via taxi). Food was very good but not excellent. We chose an 'all inclusive' deal, but there are restrictions applied by this and other hotels in Mauritius. If you chose to visit Mauritius, then you must visit the zoo on the west side. They have an unforgettable experience called 'walking with lions'. You get to interact with beautiful big cats such as lions, tigers & cheetahs at a cost of around £100 pp.

Room Tip: Make sure you chose a room with an Ocean View

Dear Philip L,

The Centara Poste Lafayette team thank you very much for choosing our hotel for the wedding anniversary. We thank you for your good advice for future travellers regarding the quiet and peaceful area of the hotel. The small size hotel makes such convivial atmosphere throughout the premises. It’s true that walking with the lion is an unforgettable experience.

We hope to welcome you back again for another enjoyable holiday with us.
