“Holiday in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We spent a week in Avani, which was marvellous. The rooms were very clean, the garden was beautiful with lots of flowers. The beach was attractive. The staff were friendly and helpful. We always had delicious food in the restaurant. Our holiday could not have been nicer. It was paradise. (from Hungary)

We had a fantastic holiday. The hotel, facilities and especially the staff were great with true sense for the details and making sure you have a nice time. One of the most impressive things we did was a private dinner on the beach - Must try!

The location, cleanness and the room of the hotel are just wonderful. Breakfast and other meals are delicious and rich. The staff is caring and clean. We were satisfied a lot. Only be aware of sea urchins while swimming.

We stayed in this hotel a few years back when it was under another operator. The refurbishment into an Avani resort is overall pleasant and the interior decoration completed with a 60s look which works quite well in the rooms and main public spaces. The pool and spa were all well set out and the gym well equipped. The menus in the restaurants and bar are quite limited in choice which is fine for a hotel at this level, with a pleasant service from staff.

As often happens with refurbishments the plumbing and air conditioning get less priority and in my room the AC on low fan setting was very noisy, the sink tap came out of its base and the panel hiding the toilet cistern opened on its own.

It was unusual to have breakfast with reception staff eating in the same place as the guests (maybe an Avani policy of some sort ?) although the breakfast buffet was well presented and fresh.

Room Tip: The quieter rooms should be out by the spa but the views from that side less enticing

Dear Valued guest,

Thank you for your nice feedback on the overall service given by the team. It is always very pleasing to read that you enjoyed the service offered by our team members. Personalized service and attention to detail are of great importance to AVANI, and we invest heavily into training to ensure every guest feels special.

With regards to the plumbing and the air conditioning feedback, the resort went into an intensive renovation for one year, not only on the “soft/visual part” but also on all the engineering, plumbing and mechanical side. I would like to apologize, as I understand this was not properly rectified in your room and I have personally looked into it.

With regards to the staff taking their meals at the restaurant, I would like to reassure you that this is not a standard practice of AVANI. We have a daily Manager on Duty who is staying in the resort, on standby for our guest 24hrs in case of any emergency. They will also be entitled to have a meal in our restaurant and share their experience for service improvement.

Thank you again for your recent stay with us and looking forward to be given another opportunity to welcome you soon.

Regards,

Unfortunatly was only there for 3 days before continuing our trip to La Digue however wished it could have been longer! Amazing staff; always ready to help and go extra to ensure you are well taken care off; quiet location with stunning view. Rooms were well appointed with a direct view on the ocean; just next to the beach. Spa treatment was amazing and food was simply perfect; you should try out the speciality restaurant.
We rented a car from the hotel directly and it was at a very reasonable price and good quality.
Will for sure be back
