“Luxury Day Package Club Med”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

All in all a nice day, but there are some issues that should be addressed by both parties - Mauritius Attractions and Club Med. This package need some quality control on what's offered and what's actually on offer.

First, you will NOT be met by friendly staff who will guide you through the premises. At reception you will be given a wrist band showing you are in on a day pass, and waived off: "You can use that part of the resort..." So, just figure it out by your self.

Second, there is NO breakfast. Though breakfast is not stated in your voucher, it is still in the description at the MA web site. Luckily there were some light snack available in the bar area, so we could fill up with some croissants, fruits, tea and juice.

There is NO particularly welcome drink, but it does hardly matter. Your wrist band gives you carte blanch to everything you want whenever you want it. The pool side staff are attentive and friendly, and will see to that your needs are cared for. As far as we could see, the same service applied at the beach. We experienced every staff member (except reception) attentive, friendly and caring, both to residents and day visitors alike.

We visited on a Sunday with nice weather. But the past days had been windy with heavy downpours, which made the beach area not very attractive due to high swellings and strong currents. We therefore decided to stay pool side. All though a family resort with a lot of children, the pool area was quiet and the pool looked after by a restrictive (positive) and humorist life guard. Boarder breaking teens were kept at a tight leash.

At about 11 AM the water aerobics starts, accompanied by extremely loud music. During this period we had to retreat to the beach, because the loudness of the music was a little too much for us. This lasts about one and a half hour.

Lunch started at 12:30 PM, and was great. A buffet lunch with an abundance of choices, all very well prepared and displayed. Lots of sitting areas, thus no problem finding a table, and we found a table for two on the airy veranda facing the sea. The only negative turned out to be a small toast with some fish cream were the toast proved full of ants. Not very nice to suddenly find hundreds of tiny ants on your plate. The plate, with everything on it, was efficiently whisked away by our waiter.

As said, all in all a nice day. But in no way as great as the Ile aux Cerfs Luxury Day Trip we attended last year. Not even close. But, still, we had a nice day off the public beaches which are very crowded on Sundays.

“Mauritius Attractions is perfect!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have never written a review but I will try to give as much details possible from our trip.

We stayed three weeks in Le Victoria on Mauritius. We got married on the beach of Le Victoria.

While we were on Mauritius we did the following attractions (Sea Plane Flight, Swimming with Dolphins, Underwater Scooter, Underwater Walk, Catamaran to Gabriel Island and 1 day stay at Ile aux Cerfs by motorboat) with Mauritius attractions. We bought the vouchers for a specific day to enjoy the small discount and to be sure that we will have our spot. Everything was perfectly arranged, like receiving the vouchers with explanation on time, arranging a trustworthy taxi driver, trying to solve a small problem etc etc

There was one small issue. One attraction(Sea Plane Flight)got cancelled by the pilot because of weather condition(strong wind and low clouds). I informed Mauritius Attractions about it and they responded in a good way, by booking the next day for us and reimbursing the taxi expenses from the previous day.

Tip:Before you travel to the location, place a phone call to the company to make sure the activity is confirmed for that day.

Mauritius Attractions try to collaborate with the companies that offer the best quality and safety. They can choose from many companies, so try to give them as much feedback possible so they can keep the high standard. Keep a company or replace it with another one.

They also take customers advice seriously. Example: They adjusted a small part(regarding beach chairs) in an attraction offer after our feedback so customers in the future can benefit from it.


Tip: The Island Tours(South, North etc) you can take with Mauritius Attractions or negotiate a good deal with a taxi in front of your resort or with one of the big companies on Mauritius.
We personally negotiated a great deal with a taxi driver in front of our resort.

“lle aux Cerfs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

we visited during the christmas time last year to mauritius .the high light of the trip was the trip to lle aux Cerf island. please dont miss this and i suggest catamerine trip will be better than speed boat trip though a bit expensive .i suggest, one master a bit of swimming ,before u go there because to witness the actual reef you need to swim. The people who take money in the island do not mention about swimming part but down in the sea they take with them only people who can swim to the coral. it was a life time sight for my children who were expert swimmers but to my husband and myself it was the biggest disappointment. many places you can book online for the slots like quad bike riding in Casella and Safari. we could not do both as our time slot was for 5 in the evening (we had aplan to catch that even). Christmas day is holiday in most tourist spot in mauritius including Casella. Dont go for hiring a car, a reliable tour operater like the one we had Destination Soleil(Dolan andCarine) works out cheaper. if we could get them for all days we were there i am sure the trip would have been another experience.

“An ideal mauritian experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My last trip to Mauritius after a brief absence of 24 years has rekindled my love of this beautiful piece of paradise.... visited many exciting hotels, two of which is a favourite where I indulged in the many delicacies of mauritian spectacular delights, these were Dragon Vert and Ocean Basket Bagtelle! Beaches of note are definitely Choisi and Cap Malheureux...a truly wonderful trip ... am due to go again in late 2013...catch you there!!!

“Amazing day!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

i want to thank Mauritius attractions for the amazing service and organisation of my trips. We have just come back from a 2 week holiday for our honeymoon and i really wanted to do something special for my husband. We decided to keep costs down and do all the trips we wanted to in 1 day. From the word go, Mauritius attractions helped me to decided which trips to do and organised a full day excursion for me with transport. We decided to do the swimming with dolphins, zip lining at Casela Park, walking with the lions and then finished off the day with a sunset cruise. All i can say is amazing amazing amazing! Best day of our holiday and experiences i will never forget. Our transport was just meant to be a man driving us from place to place but instead he practically became our tour guide for the day, Ivan what an amazing man, we learnt so much about Mauritius, the history, the culture, the people and he showed us so many additional things that Mauritius had to offer, such as the amazing temples.
If you go to Mauritius you have to go to Casela Park, walking with the lions is a must!!
Thank you so much Mauritius Attractions, you have wonderful customer service especially Deivani and you really know what you are doing!! i am already recommending you!!
