Every year I go to Mauritius but was the first time in this nice hotel.
All the last times we went to a very expensive 5 starts hotels but none of them can beat this hotel.
Of course the structure is old but all the services and the quality of it are at the top standard.
All the rooms are very clean and the bath recently refurnished and clean. Very good food in an elegant restaurant also very clean (once a week they remove all the tables and wash the restaurant with a lot of water and cleaning product: really very clean).
Nice swimming pool usually very quiet and clean.
There are so many weaiters that you can have your personal one and if something falls down they will find for you in less then 1 minute !
Beautifull white sand beach just in front of the Hotel and due to the small number of rooms and guests no problem to find a nice place in the beach (usually the 5 stars hotel in Mauritius leave their guest to fight to have a place in the beach: not this one).
In 5 minutes of speed boat (too speedy for our European idea of "safe trip") you can get to nice Cerves Island that is certainly one of the best beach of Mauritius.
The staff of the hotel is so nice and so friendly that you will not find anything better in the world: we had the fight leaving late in the night and notwithstanding the check out time is at 12 we have been allowed to keep our rooms until the taxi came to collect us to the airport. This without any extra charge at all !
Free of charge wi-fi connection in the hall (you will not spend a cents to keep in touch with home just need a wi-fi phone or notebook).
The only part that are below the expected standards are: television (there is no satellite television, but honestly who cares?), the lock of the rooms doors are very old and not very efficient (who cares, in the rooms there are wall safes and the staff does not touch even the money left in the room!).
We had two ocean view rooms but also the bungalow rooms are very nice and would have given to us a considerable reduction of the cost as the bungalow are quite bigger then the ocean view rooms and so we could have just one room instead of two saving a lot (suggestion for family travelers).
Nothwithstanding the hotel is sourronded by a big and nice garden and outside it there is full of mosquitoes in the hotel it is very hard to find a mosquito and you have not to mind about the mosquito bites.
Very nice also the all inclusive solution: you will be required to sign the single bills anyway but everything is included and at the chek out you do not have to pay a cents of extra (unless you ask for extras like imported spirits, wine).
Poor the quality of the house wine but no limits to the quantity, good the quality of beers and other spirts served for free.
In the evening the hotel is surrounded by guardians that make the hotel a very safe place (Mauritius is not a dangerous area anyway but none can get in the hotel in the night so you can relax and leave free the childrens).
Not good for singles as the Hotel close all the activity (and noise) at midnight but great for relaxing.
Very nice also the shows done in the restaurant that allow also, who likes it, to dance with two good singers and live music every day and in addition to that also evey night there is an additional show done by other artists.
We usually flow to Mauritius with Airmauritius that have direct flights, but this time we made the great mistake to switch to Emirates that in addition to have a stop in Dubai (where it is difficult also to find a seat and a coffee cost about 8 Euros!) have a very unconfortable seats and always accumulates big delay. Be carefull in choosing the air carrier as the travel is quite long and a bad option like Emirates, may affect the quality of the holiday.
