“Value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I stayed at Ambre hotel in August 2013 with my newly wed wife and it was great experience! The staff was really nice and helpful, caring for even our smallest needs. They were always happy to answer our questions. It is really value for money to be staying at Ambre Hotel!

Room Tip: choose the rooms with seaviews! totally worth it!

The Ambre hotel was a very welcoming and pleasant place for a week of vacations in Mauritius. The hotel staff was extremely kind and helpful in answering all our requests and demands, in particular in the boat house where we could always get a boat or a kayak for some water sports before relaxing on the beach.
The only drawback is the outdated dress code for diner that is not enforced by the waiters, since you can see guests coming in trainers and flip-flops.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the pool

We stayed at Ambre in Jan 2013 and it was amazing. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make you comfortable. Service in the main dining area was a little slow, but this was due to alot of staff being new and finding thei feet. The food was amazing and the hotel has the best beach and pool in Mauritius. Weather was hot and the beach was never full with plenty of sun lounges for everyone. Would definatley go back again!

Ambre hotel is a great honeymoon destination.... The staff is cooperating, the rooms are good, and the surroundings are terrific. Take your drinking water along from outside because it costs heavy inside the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to choose beach-view room

We spent the last week of May at Ambre. We arrived late and were received by friendly staff. We had a lovely dinner and Vikrahm served us. 10 out of 10 for his friendly attentive service. We stayed in a ground floor suite near the boat house. Fabulous view and easy access to the beach. The staff take note of preferences and needs and always ready and willing to assist. We celebrated our birthdays there and got cake and the staff sang to me. The food was outstanding and the 3 restaurants have a huge variety. The Spa is a must. The beach is clean and being served on the beach was absolute bliss. Our room attendant Vick spoiled us with surprise towel art on our bed every evening. The trip to ile aux cerfs with Macloud was superb and a must see. Definitely worth taking all inclusive. We had a super time and will definitely return to Ambre.

We stayed at the Ambre in late July 2013 for 7 nights.

July is low season for Mauritius and the hotel was, at most, half full (probably signifcantly less) which meant that it had a very unrushed, relaxed feel. You never had competition for a sun lounger around the pool or on the beach or for the watersports facilities.

Our rooms were 'garden facing', but were plenty big enough for two with good sized bathrooms. The balcony in our first floor room was a bit token, but as the beach and reception areas in the hotel were virtually empty, this wasn't important.

Food in the buffet, beach a la carte (lunchtime) and the Italian a la carte (evening) restaurants was universally good, with the buffet offering a mix of local and international food. The staff were attentive to a fault (personally I find this kind of attentiveness a bit cloying, but many enjoy it) and always friendly.

One thing food wise was that, staying all inclusive, not all options (food and drink) on the menus were included and if you wanted them you paid full price. This didn't prevent us eating and drinking well, but it was a shame you couldn't 'upgrade' to the expensive meals rather than having to pay again.

The beach and pool were lovely too.

We borrowed bikes one day and cycled to Belle Mare and other days some or all of us took a trip out to the Black River Canyons and southern Mauritius and to the botanical gardens in Pamplemousse.

My daughter and I dived 3 days with the dive centre associated with the hotel, but run out of the Tousserok about 15 minutes away (where the hotel gift shop sells Rolexes! A different level to the Ambre). We were very happy with the service we got there and we had some good dives, including spotting a turtle on one dive, which was quite exciting for us both.

My wife and son took a catamaran ride out to nearby islands and had a very good time too.

Overall, the feeling of staying at the Ambre was of informal luxury and tranquillity. For me, this is the perfect holiday, but some will find the hotel a little lacking in ostentatious luxury,

Room Tip: General view is that sea-view rooms are better, but if you're on a budget the garden rooms are f...
