“Le Paradis in name and experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We stayed for our first week at One & Only St Geran and then moved on to Le Paradis (for our third consecutive year). What a difference. Le Paradis is luxurious, elegant and contemporary, beautiful beach, beautiful sunsets, good value (most of the good wines were half the price of St Geran), the food for the third year running was exceptional, service exceptional - friendly, helpful but very discreet. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the gym is brilliantly decked out and spacious, great spa. We stayed in a Senior Suite which was stunning - very spacious and beautifully appointed rooms, right on the ocean, beautiful large sandy beach, clear blue water, fantastic scuba dives, attentive service all day on the beach. This hotel is a dream for families as the children are well catered for and there are lots of things for them to do and an enormous pool for them to play in which is shallow and safe. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to chill in luxury without pretentious service. Our only criticism - we stayed on full board plus and even though each restaurant appeared to have a record of this, the different waiters did not appear to know what this entitled us to. We suggested that they changed it to a token system and then clients can just pay extra if they exceed the value of the token.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms on the villa side of the resort - opposite to where all the water sports take pl...

Searching high and low for the right place we feel it was the correct choice. We took half board. After trying the main restaurant buffet style we opted for the Blue Marlin with the set menu which suited us fine. We fell for the trap of a cocktail which really caught us when the bill came. Each night was a pleasure here and the food was prepared well. Considering the majority of the guests were French the English spoken was ok. Though some waiters English could be better.
We made use of the spa which was very relaxing. We made use of the sports available. We booked tennis without an issue. Palates classes were very good. The instructor was geared for both starters and experienced people. The bicycles were in a good nick and we rode out down to the nearest village on two occasions.
We had a sea view room which suited us fine. It was cleaned and well maintained. It was pretty far away from all the vibe in the hotel and quiet.
Despite been geared for family the children and the noise that goes with it was not a problem. We left our kids behind at home to get away from it all and it really was no problem to hear kids in the distance.
Staff were attentive and really went out of their way to assist us. The beach area was clean and the beach is very pleasant. Though some of the vendors selling their wares are irritating after day 2. We would come back with our young kids though maybe on full board.

Room Tip: Take a sea view room if you can and if stairs don't worry you, at least a second or third floor...

The Paradis hotel is the best choice for wedding for its beautiful wedding place at La Ravanne restaurant and for the view at Le Morne mountain. The beach is outstanding. Everything was perfect with our "special day". Our wedding coordinator Veronique was excellent. All the staff are friendly with smile and always there to help. We did not have a single problem during whole stay there. The food is great whatever restaurant you choose. I would recommend couples to go there in the end of September as the season begins in the October (you save a lot of money as the price difference between September and the October is considerable and than there is more quiet and relaxed atmosphere). Temperature and weather is ok in the end of September as it is still winter season in Mauritius.

This is a lovely hotel for families. We travelled with our 2 teens for 2 weeks all arranged by Angelfish/Mauritiusdirect.
Be aware, in the school holidays the hotel attracts guests with children of all ages. Of course, there lies the appeal for many.

It's impossible to fault the location, right on the tip of Le Morne. Postcard beaches & warm water. Plenty of sunbeds & lots of space.

The rooms are more than adequate, although not really 5 star. We had interconnecting deluxe rooms on the lagoon beach. We felt they were well situated, in a quiet location but near the tennis courts & watersports hut.
We did walk past the private villas & they looked really luxurious.

Food is a big highlight. With the restaurants at next door Dinarobin there is a choice of 8 places for dinner. The buffets were great but we tended to prefer the smaller menus.It's hard to find fault with the food or service in any of the restaurants. We chose the full board plus (BLD with wine) and never felt short changed. I'm sure this is the most cost effective way of enjoying such high end dining.

There are so many included activities it would be impossible to be bored. The usual water sports (all the teens loved the water skiing) including sailing & windsurfing. Snorkelling from the shore was lovely especially around the beach to the right of The Blue Marlin. We played tennis daily & heard reports that the tennis coaching was excellent. The weekly tournament was well attended & great fun.
Some family member played golf, it is a gorgeous course. Reduced fees for guests but extra for clubs so serious players would probably want to take their own.
We paid extra to go Big Game Fishing with great success, 21 Bonito & 3 great big Dorado.

Service is faultless. The staff all bend over backwards to help in any way, from the golf club drivers taking guests around the resorts, to the waiters who remembered which of my sons liked ginger ale to the chaps on the beach who turn your sunbed round (!) I can't find any criticism,

Would we go back? Yes definitely with the children in the school holidays. I think for a romantic break the Dinarobin next door might be more suitable.

I'd be happy to answer any questions regarding our trip, we're also been to The Shandrani.

We visited Le Paradis for the 4th time in August 2012, after a 3 day asfari at Pumba Game Reserve(see review separately). We arrived late (around 9.30 pm) and we were immediately shown to the restaurant to get some food before they shut whilst the check in staff looked after the room formalities which was well received.

Having previously stayed in a beach front room, this time we upgraded to 2 x beachfront Junior suites. The rooms were huge and very nicely fitted, having recently been refurbished. The interconnection between the 2 rooms was very good, effectively they acted as totally indpendent room, but as they shared a main door we could leave each room unlocked. Excellent with teenage children. I had when making the booking asked for roomns close to the pool and Restaurants, as some of the Junior suites are a little walk away. In hindsigt this was a mistake, as the music from the bar went on until midnight most evening, and we could hear it extremely loudly in the rooms (rooms 200 & 201)! they should consider better soundproofing or turning it down after say 11.

The location of this hotel is its best feature, I challenge anyone to find a better location for a hotel than this. Stunningly crystal clear water and lovely golden sandy beach all protected by the reef about 1/2 mile off shore, and the sun setting in front of the hotel every evening. It doesnt get much better than that!

The facilities and activities at the hotel are very good, a championship 18 hole golf course set out on the penisula is certainly a challenge, beach volley ball, football, Kayaks, sailing and water skiing to name but a few. There are also a number of local traders offering inflatable rides, water skiing and fishing trips. Having used their services on many occassions over the 4 visits, they are excellent. Do haggle their price though! Johnnie in Oyster King offers the best fishing trips, just outside the reef for Barracuda and needle fish, we caught 2 Barracuda and 4 needle fish and a Captain fish in 2 trips, just fantsatic.

The food in the hotel was very good, you can choose between restaurants at either Le Paradis or its sister hotel along the beach the Dinarobin. The only problem with being half board is that you get a set 2 choices at each retaurant or have to pay fuill al la carte prices (they used to give an allowance) that said we ate at le Palme (italian - lovely) and the French restaurant (Dinarobin over 12's only) this was the best service and food by a country mile. They now offer a full board plus option whereby you get Lunch (2 courses) and some drinks with meals for about £25 a night each. On the basis that lunches were between £12 and £15 each, the package worked out very good value. Be warned though there are only 2 restaurants you can get lunch at on the full board plus basis, one at each hotel. Having been 3 times previously, I would say that the service has slipped a little, and is not as good as it used to be, although still very acceptable, if sometimes a little slow.

Those of you worried about the weather, this part of Mauritius certainly gets the best of the winter weather, over the 10 days we were here, we had 1 1/2 bad days, overcast, cloudy and chilly, and 8 1/2 days of sunshine in the mid to late 20's. be aware it cools off in the evenings and a jumper is a good idea.

The resort is in a nice position, is dated but good maintained, nothing to say for the ambiance and for the care of the proprety, rooms are nice and spacious ( we were in a Junior suite ) and the personal is warm and available, even a little "sticky" in restaurants area ( maybe they try to sow for tips..?). Beachcomber property offer a "full board plus " formula ( 46 euros day per person) that should add the lunch to the half board, but is something really poor,especially if you use the Blue Marlin and the Palma restaurants. If you choose one of these restaurants you will discover that you have only a choice on two (2!) main courses and one appetizer OR one dessert! excuse me, but for a 5 star Hotel formula it sound miserable! We were sorry to have choose this formula,even because if you use the Brabant restaurant you will find every day the same food. Another criticism is about the food, not bad like global quality but boring like different kind! every day is the same, the same! the wines included in the formula " Full board Plus" are poors wine, even if they came from Italy, France, South Africa or Chile, and you understand it just looking the metal plug normaly used for very cheap wines; the wines not included are very expensives, to much expencives ( around 60/70 euros for normal wine like Italians Chianti , or a South Africa Cabernet Sauvignon that value max 20 euros). A strange thing is that you have a wifi free connection in the rooms but if you want to use the internet in the hotel corner you have to pay it !!!!
Finaly is a good Hotel but absolutely not a 5 stars with the normal classification, is to much expencives compared to the services that offers and for us we will not choose it again in the future, because we are sure we can find a better cost benefit ratio.
Last thing, with us the Hotel Director has been ambiguous, because first he promise us that we will be his guests in dinner gala, but we didn't heard, and see him, no more for all the holiday!!! very educated.

Room Tip: Best location are the Junior Suite Front Beach

i've been travelling throughout most of the world including hawaii, europe, usa, australasia but this is still my favourite! i've been here half a dozen times before!
if there is a paradise, this is my idea of it! this is still the best beach in the world; it feels remote but it's actually within very easy reach of all must-see's!
the clear tranquil lagoon, the white beach, the palm trees, the mountain, the green green grass, the cocooned, away-from-it-all feeling, makes it stand out from the rest, even the St Gerant!!!
