It could have been a real good resort but the hygiene in the room was far from good. Bed wants and plenty small insects. They fumed my room upon request and thereafter OK. House keeping good during the day but the turn down service did often not show up. Drinks were quite

I thought the rooms were quite nice--I was quite comfortable in my room. Nothing felt outdated about it to me. As for the beach, it is true that much of the beaches are rocky, but there is a nice area around the main pool. Aside from a very lengthy check-in process and wanting to be closer to town because of our itinerary, I thought this place was nice.

Hi. August is perfect- not too humid but warm enough to enjoy the beach and the pool. The evenings are also excellent- you won't need any warm clothes.

tourists are allowed to drive for upto 4 weeks with a valid driving licence Mauritius is a country that recognizes the Geneva Road Traffic Convention of 1949 and the law stipulates: “Any person holding a valid International Driving Permit or Driving Licence issued by a competent foreign authority shall not be required to pass a test. Any such permit or licence shall entitle the holder thereof to drive within the State of Mauritius any vehicle of the types specified thereon.” (Sections 57 and 59 of Road Traffic Regulations 1954).
