HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW

We recently stayed at the InterContinental Mauritius for 9 days and loved every minute from the moment we walked in, greeted by friendly management and a cocktail. The half board option is great with a choice of 4 different restaurants in the evening, and 2 for breakfast. We especially liked Veda - the Indian restaurant, and Segala - Mauritian seafood....

Just returned from a couple of weeks at the Intercontinental Mauritius. The hotel is beautifully set on a private beach and the staff are marvellous - nothing is too much trouble for anyone. We were made to feel so special and very welcome from the time we set foot in the magnificent Reception area. I didn't want to come home.
