5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2007

There is not much to add to what previous reviewers said - we have chosen this place based on the reviews and were happy for that decision all through our stay. Being the last hotel at the stretch of beach makes it a quiet while not a stranded place, onsite services include anything the other hotels offer short of crowds, noise, lack of privacy and diversion for teenagers - make your choice. The staff were helpful but far from obtrusive. 1+! If you are used to scope the surroundings of the places to go using online maps then do not worry, the Google satellite maps ( [--] ) are a few years old, there is no construction taking place anywhere close now. Try to get more details about the local atractions - they usually offer much more than the name or tourist guide suggests.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2007

We just returned from a fantastic honeymoon in Mauritius! The hotel was great, I would definitely recommend this hotel to other travellers. The food was fantastic, we went half board and did not regret this decision. They organised a different buffet every evening (Creole, Indian, Asian, Italian). The food was of a very high standard and we enjoyed every evening. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The pool was lovely and relaxing with the beach right beside it. The evening entertainment was good. In general, we had nothing to complain about at this hotel. The location is ideal. We got the bus in to town a few times and also to Port Louis for a day trip.
The spa facitities are great. The staff are well trained and friendly. If you want to switch off and relax, this is definitely a hotel where you can do it! I would definitely go back to this hotel!!

  • Liked — The service (pool, food, beach, staff)
  • Disliked — Nothing to complain about!
