This hotel has a beautiful tropical garden and spa setting. There are lovely flowers everywhere and pretty tropical birds. The ambience around the hotel and restaurant is lovely and relaxing. We would have given this hotel 4 stars, but the food unfortunately lets it down.
When we arrived we were immediately made to feel relaxed when welcomed with a free drink and a cool flannel. We were told we had been upgraded which was nice, I wasn't sure whether we really were or not? But our room was nice and it had a lovely patio to sit out on with the birds.
The hotel is in a nice location right next to a nice beach where you can snorkel and use free kayaks and pedals that the hotel provides. We really enjoyed kayaking. You can walk along the beach to pereybere beach which is a lovely beautiful walk, lots of white sand and coconut trees. There are also some nice restaurants and cafes in pereybere.
The hotel has a very nice pool and some of the staff are very friendly. The cleaner does a fantastic job of the rooms.
The real let down at this hotel was the food. We were half board and the evening meals were ok, but just a bit bland. We never looked forward to the meals. There was some nice Grilled marlin on one night and steak night and Briani night were nice. I think they try to cater for all tastes, and because some people don't like spicy food or garlic etc everything is just a bit tasteless! For example the currys have never seen a chili!! The desserts were awful. Breakfast was nice due to the egg chef, but you may get bored of egg after a week!
Lots of people have complained about birds flying around and landing on the tables during breakfast. This is true, but we loved all the birds and enjoyed watching them at breakfast.
Entertainment at the hotel was not great, the saga dancing was good though. We also watched a cooking demonstration one afternoon and this was very interesting, and the food we tasted for that was lovely.
Unfortunately there were 3 days when the were issues with the shower. One morning there was no water at all! The next day the water was cold and the following day it was still cold, so we had cold showers. The hotel did offer us a shower in another room.
Overall though, we really did like this hotel a lot and would recommend it, it is so relaxing and beautiful around the hotel gardens.
Mauritius is a beautiful island, lovely hot and sunny weather everyday in the north of the island. The south and central island can be wet and cooler. We hired a car from the airport. Easy to drive around, everyone seems to drive very slowly in Mauritius!
We had a lovely holiday and feel very relaxed now :)
