I stayed at Beau Rivage in November for 7 days. The pool area is great although you need to get up really early to get a bed by the pool, after 08.30 they are all taken.. Beach is nice although it was very low water at the time. Plenty of activities are included in price like glassbottom boat tour, waterskiing, kayaking, sailing, snorkling, nice staff at the boat house. Rooms are nicely decorated a home away from home, with walk-in closet, large bathroom with seperate shower and bathtube. Sofa and a comfortable bed, homey.. Nice balcony i had a lovely view over sea and pool area. Rooms are done twice a day and very clean and well kept. Common areas are also nice. Computer room exists but internet quite expensive.
Now the negative, prices of food and wine are disgustingly high more than 2/3 of the menu are not included in half board, normal extra for a starter is around 10 Euro and extra for maincourse is 20-30 Euro and dessert 10 euro. So you pay twice for the food first half board and then extras.. Wine is 35 Euro minimum for a bottle that cost 4-5 Euro in the store.. I like value for money and this is not value for money you feel cheated and robbed for paying twice. Drinks around 9 Euro. I normally do not like buffet dinners but their buffet diners where actually quite good, food fresh and warm and chef made new food according to demand so that was nice. My recommendation to people is avoid the a la carte restaurants and go for the buffet nights. Buffets are usually no extra. To avoid paying hefty fees for wine i orded room service with a tray charge of 3 Euro extra and drank my own wine in my room, nice to sit on the balcony at night and look out over the pool area and sea. So buy taxfree wine and order room service from the restaurant you fancy.
Taxis at hotell are expensive so go out on the road and get a cheaper one. You can negotiate the price with the driver. I hate over paying for things! Talk to a cabbie and let him drive you around the island i did most of the Island for 70 Euro we started really early in the morning and he drove me around for 8 hours so do not bother to hire a car for 50 Euro and drive your self on the wrong side of the road...:)
Staff are very helpful, pizza, cold towels, clean glasses by the pool. My valet rubbed in my back with sun cream every morning since i travelled alone. They iron two things for you every day at no extra cost.
So to conclude really nice property and service but food is average and prices of food very high, extremely bad value in terms of food..
