Three nights on Mahe before dive trip--where to stay?

We are going to fly to Mahe three days before our dive trip begins. The group will meet/stay one night at Le Meridian Barbarons where we stayed previously--I don't think it's a good choice for three more days/nights since there isn't much variety of places to go or eat there. It is, however, reasonably priced, so perhaps it is worth it to take cabs or rent a car to go elsewhere for dinner/day trips? We don't want to spend $500 a night elsewhere, but we'd like somewhere very comfortable where we can recover from two days flying and jet lag. -Our flight gets in early in the day and we'd like to get (stagger) to hotel with the least effort!

Hi Charles,

Le Meridien Barbarons is very isolated in an area close to Grand Anse with no restaurants nearby. If you want to have a great relaxing 2 days after flight with all the facilities nearby I can recommend you Beau Vallon: Clef des Iles is a great place on Beau Vallon beach just close to all the facilities that you need: restaurants, supermarkets, bars, exchange offices or car rental companies. If you want a hotel you can choose Barbarons' brother Fisherman's Cove or if you want something cheaper Coral Strand is a good choice on the beach.
