The location was beautiful, with a lounge that opens up to a dazzling paradise view. Straight away we were offered a welcoming service, with delicious drinks and friendly waiters especially Vishan and Natalie. The rooms were cosy and spoke of the Mauritian culture. However the toilets leaked now and then and should be maintained. The range of food provided was... More

It's a nice hotel. The view is really good. I love the swimming pool and the beach in the hotel . The service is also good. Especially the waiter in the lobby named Ketan . He's very kind and warm to guests. All in all, love the intercontinental hotel and love Mauritius.

The reception staff is wonderfully nice and sympathetic people. However, the restaurant staff are not well trained, highly unprofessional. A complete chaos for dinner and lunch as the hotel hosts conference people in the same restaurant as the clients. Police Officers and conference delegates are all eating at the same time as clients. And the food was tasteful may be... More

This is one of the best resorts in Mauritius for Indians, if not the best. The location is perfect and so is the resort. Beautiful pristine white sandy beach with its own private island makes for an amazing view. Serves pretty good Indian food as well.
