We started our honeymoon at La Maison d'Ete before spending the second half of it at the Sands resort. We would have loved to spend longer at La Maison d'Ete but sadly it was fully booked and we missed it very much for the rest of our honeymoon! Next time we will miss out the Sands.
It is very calm, with beautiful views over the ocean. Marie Michele and Jean-Claude were very kind and welcoming throughout our stay (very friendly without imposing on you at all and allowing you complete freedom and privacy while being there for you should you need any advice/information). This lovely couple are also multi-lingual.
Our bungalow was great. Well looked after and extremely clean. It had everything we wanted (no TV but we didn't need one), and the ceiling fan was great for maintaining comfortable temperatures.
We really appreciated that fact that there were two pools. During our stay, only adults ever used the pool by the restaurant (which wasn't very often) and toddlers appeared to use the second pool, which was out of sight. This was a real bonus as the pools are not very large, so children splashing about would have been annoying.
The hotel is remote but easy to use as a base to explore the island via taxis or bikes that are provided. This is not the place if you want evening entertainment/bars etc. Big supermarket quite close by to buy drinks etc..and a good restaurant on site. Breakfast was simple but fresh and of good quality (some pastries/croissants would have been quite nice) and Patrick who looks after guests during breakfast was utterly adorable. The cleaning staff were joyful, efficient and discrete but very friendly too.
All in all this was a beautiful, safe place, where we could thoroughly relax. And excellent value for money compared to the Sands (where you pay a hefty premium for the advantage of spectacular sunsets and which we felt had far less character). Thank you to all at the Maison D'Ete for a fabulous welcome to Mauritius - and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future x.
