We booked direct a return taxi transfer and were charged Rs1600 airport/hotel/airport. We had booked to stay originally at the Le Suffren hotel (the sister property) but were upgraded and invited to have a harbour view suite at Labourdonnais. We had returned to Mauritius and needed one night's accommodation & couldn't book near the airport. It is about 45 minutes to the hotel.
Our room was a 5 star standard. Everything had been thought of as every amenity was in the room. There was a lovely private balcony that opened up with French doors to the view the harbour activity. The room is for the business traveller, however, we also think it is suitable for the elderly or those unable to walk long distances as on exiting the hotel the main area of Port Lois waterfront is on hand. In saying this, it is also appealing to a couple who might need a night's accommodation before moving areas in Mauritius and want to be a part of the waterfront with luxury. It wouldn't be for the non business traveller for more than a night or two. Even though we identified this as a business hotel we would stay here again for a night if we needed to. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however pre-order the hot beverage the night before for delivery from 0500 to 0700. We were able to take advantage of this as we had an early flight depature the next morning.
We understood why airline crew stay here on arrival as it is a hideway from the bustle of Port Lois. There are 3 restaurants and 1 bar within the hotel, however, adjacent to the hotel many bars, restaurants and shops are a part of Caudan Waterfront so more options can be found. The Executive Health Club is complimentary to all hotel guests and is small like the pool however to an excellent standard. The location of this hotel is ideal to discover the Caudan Waterfront and allowed us to explore the area without having to get the bus from Pereybere where we had stayed earlier in the month. The hotel offers complimentary cruises around the harbour twice a week or one can organise to go to a nearby hotel beach by boat four times a week. So, if you are to stay here maybe contact the hotel ahead of time to see if these activities will fit in your schedule. Another boat is available for full day sailing along the reefs. The staff in this hotel are professional and take the extra step to ensure guests are having an enjoyable stay. Shortly after checking into our room we received a call from guests services to ensure we were happy with the room.
