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

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

My partner and I booked to stay here for five days and were so excited after all the rave reviews. However, we felt like we were set up a little. The hotel is intimate, the rooms wonderful, the staff in reception and house keeping great. However, all the fuss about the food....... not so sure. Maybe we are just too... More

A beautiful small boutique hotel at a quiter end of Trou aux Biches beach. The standard room was spacious with a stunning beach view. It was great to have the option of lounging in the more private gardens or on the beach front. Staff were all friendly and approachable. The dinner menu was top restaurant quality with a very flexible... More
