We visted Long beach resort early in August. The drive from the airport was a lot longer than expected. The welcome and check in was a breeze. The facilities in room and at the hotel were explained very well . The room was clean and very modern. We had a room very far away from the reception and there isnt a constant buggy service. Also it wasnt on the beach so it protected us from the wind.
The resort had planned activities, but they were weather permitting and didnt repeat often. Also you feel like you have to stick to a timetable on vacation so we werent a fan of that. Nonetheless, the activties were good. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling and water activities. When the resort is packed, make sure you book for the activities you want.
Staying at Long beach gives you a complimentary game of golf at Le Touessrok which is one of the top 10 golf courses in the world. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
I used the spa facilities and it was reasonaly priced and good service.
There are four restaurant options, however during the day it was limited to one restaurant. The food was amazing particularly at the buffet. It does get busy however because not all the restaurants are open everyday.
Being winter, the weather was very temperatmental. However the resort is built to block out the wind very well.
Evening entertainment was a live band on most nights and a few shows. The live bands were brilliant and we loved the way they got the audience to participate. There is a club called Bombara which opens after the live band, it was such a stunning venue however the music was unbearable. The DJ tried to hard and we found it was too heavyfor a beach holiday. We visited only once for a short time and never returned.
When compared to another resort we visited in Mauritius, we found that the staff werent as friendly as we have previously experienced in Mauritius. There were the odd few who were friendly. Also, the follow up on queries and questions wasnt very quick. We had to wait a day or two or follow up ourselves.
As with other travellers, we found the drinks excessively priced and it wasnt easy to kick back and enjoy the holiday. Even water was too expensive!
We would definitely recommend this resort, the design and facilities are worth it for a perfect beach vacation.
