Help with holiday choice

Hi can anyone help ??

I am hoping to book to go to Mauritius at the end of Feb choices for the price i want to pay are :-

Pearle Beach, Wolmar

Pointe aux Biches

Ambre hotel, Belle Mare

Jalsa Beach, Lafayette

Does anyone know any of these resorts and hotels?? which is best for us do you think ??

we are a 40ish married couple looking for a nice relaxing holiday/break from work with good food and a nice beach but ideally with a bit of decent entertainment in the evenings

I would welcome any feedback from well travelled visitors as this will be our first time in Mauritius and so we want to make the most of it if we can

Look forward to hearing from you all

Hi Clare,

I've stayed at Ambre, though a while ago, and visited the others.

Ambre is on the east coast and has a good beach, but it gets mixed reviews and I found the food a bit hit and miss. Note the east is a bit isolated.Its part of Apavou hotels. Its classed as 4* but in reality is more 3*.


Pointe aux Biches is a nice modern 3* in the north west within easy reach of Grand Baie. Its contemporary and comfortable, but rooms a bit small. On a bus route. Beach not as good as Ambre.. Part of Veranda group:


Jalsa Beach is a newish hotel in a very isolated position at Post Lafayette. Superior rooms are nice with CD player etc.

Pearle Beach is a renovatred 3* at Wolmar and right in the centre, with shops an bus stop just outside. It backs on to the main road so may be noisy at times.

Close to Flic en Flac and all its amenities. Nice but smallish rooms. with contemporary furnsihings.


If you want entertainment I would look at Pointe aux Biches and pearle beach as these are closest to resort towns.

I would trawl through the recent reviews of all these and compare them.
