This is a lovely welcoming boutique hotel located right on the long sandy beach at Trou aux Biches. It has a small pool but the beach and sea are so close to hand that there is no reason to use it. A kiosk on the beach offers complimentary water-related activities. We went in the glass-bottomed boat which was fun. Breakfast... More

Enjoyed every moment of our stay in Le Cardinal. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday with not too many people around, superb service, lovey food, beautiful property this is the resort. We had a lovely and spacious room with balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. Falling a sleep and waking up to the sound of waves was really... More

Administratively linked with a larger resort hotel across the road means guests of Le Cardinal benefit from all their amenities as well has having the peace and seclusion of this lovely small hotel. Rooms were spacious and well appointed and the restaurant offered local and international cuisine with a large menu. Laundry was a bit on the expensive side, but... More

We stayed here for a week with our 2 kids (2 years and 10 months). The hotel was a great place to stay, very well located, super calm but with a big hotel next to it that had all we needed and excellent food. The best of all (without doubt) is the staff. We have now left for another week... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week at Easter, and we chose the resort as we were looking for somewhere really quiet and relaxing to stay. This place ticked all our boxes. The room was big with a bath and a shower and a nice view into the garden and the sea beyond. The excellent white-sand beach was... More

We spend a week at this wonderful place one hours drive from the airport. The best service you can ask for, the food was superb, the kitchen prepared special food for us due to some allergic wishes... We will be back ;-) //jim & angelica

Fantastic service. Quiet but with all the activities nearby for the kids. Fabulous food. Awesome value. The staff were friendly, welcoming, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was incredible. Great choice of rooms for both adults only or families. Beats the larger hotels hands down.

Fantastic ocean view rooms with direct access to beach. Friendly and welcoming staff, very kindly agreed to switch our room from ground to first floor after we had already checked in. Food is spectacular, and perhaps the best part was the staff start to remember your preferences very quickly. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at the sister hotel to Le Cardinal and took an opportunity to have an extended visit at Le Cardinal and experience the hotel as well as being shown the rooms by the manager. Mauritius has relatively few boutique hotels and Le Cardinal has very much flown on the radar mainly because they tend to get a lot of... More

After much research we decided to stay at this beautiful boutique hotel. I wanted something intimate and different to the usual bigger resorts in Mauritius. The hotel is beautiful, well kept, and offers a very personalised service, beautiful rooms and grounds. The food is a very high standard and the wine list is very nice and you have much to... More
