We had an amazing time at Cape Bay! We are an American family with 3 children, our daughter was born in Mauritius so we know the island well and visit often. We have stayed in almost every part of the island and during the colder season it's best to stay as far north as possible to avoid the wind and cooler temps you will find in the south.
We enjoyed Cape Bay, well appointed with stylish and high quality furnishings. We rented the 3 bedroom penthouse and it came fully equipped with sheets, towels, dishes etc... Emmanuel and his wife were very welcoming even though we arrived more than 1 hour late! They even stocked the fridge with water, soda and cold beer! They bought bread and jam so that we would have something for breakfast due to our late night arrival. Very kind and a nice touch!
The beach is just as beautiful as in pictures, although I would suggest you go a bit to the right (1 minute walk) as you leave the flats as there is a nice spot to lounge and they rent kayaks, paddle boats etc... for a reasonable fee and you should negotiate. :)
The flat also has a nice pool that was very clean and well maintained and the penthouse we stayed in had a "French" pool on our balcony. The kids enjoyed it and we could supervise them easily. The wireless internet worked great, the housekeeper included with the rental was fantastic- she did laundry, dishes and will even cook for a small fee!
We also enjoyed having options as we were tired of staying at resorts and paying extra for the all inclusive packages as 2 of our children are under the age of 4 and we easily get tired of the buffet and being holed up in one location the entire stay. While at Cape Bay we rented a car and went to the Happy Rajah Indian restaurant, the Chinese restaurant, ice cream shops etc... we also went bowling, to the movies and to the shopping mall a few times. All within 10 minutes of the flat! Lot's of dining choices and entertainment options in the evening.
Overall I would highly recommend staying at Cape Bay!
