Jalsa Beach Hotel and Spa
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Poste Lafayette
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Last year we found this lovely hotel after a disaster and loved it - the people, the food - everything was great. So we came back again this year and enjoyed it again. Sandy helped us very much with the room and all the people here were so nice again. It typically starts with the great breakfast - the variety makes it difficult to decide, then relaxing on the pool or the sea, or going out, and the dinner is a must especially if you like indian food.

We have just returned from our second visit to Jalsa Beach. We never normally go back to the same place twice for two reasons A: The world is a very big place and B: Just incase its never as good the second time around! But boy are we glad we did!!! Everything was just as perfect as we remembered, The food, The drink, the hotel and grounds and most of all the people! It felt like coming home and we will be back again!
The Management team really work hard to make this hotel what it is. The staff are always smiling and the food is amazing. We were really happy to find it was still small and hadn't expanded at all. We were treated like royalty from the minute we arrived, not sure if that was because it was my 40th birthday, our 5th wedding Anniversarry or because we were repeat guests! Maybe all three!
Thank you Jalsa for another amazing holiday! See you again soon!

Just returned from a fortnight stay at Jalsa Beach and fully enjoyed it. From the start, when we arrived, we were greeted at the reception by the manager ( Richard ) who made it his duty to instantly get to know us and make us feel welcome with a refreshing drink and a smile. The room (308) was excellent, with a lovely view overlooking the pool, relaxation area and spa, with the additional sight of seeing a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Food was also excellent with plenty of choices and if nothing took your fancy, then chef would go that extra mile and prepare some chips or pizza.
To top this hotel when comparing it against the others is the fact that it is a small and a very peaceful place to stay, well maintained with a few personal touches and giving a total relaxation experience.
Many thanks to all the staff especially Sanjaye,Chef and Richard from Trev & Angie.

We took a "Make-my-trip" Package and it was our honeymoon. I loved the location and the staff was polite. The pool side and the adjacent beach was lovely. Food was also very good and the rooms were really clean.
But I was disappointed as I expected a room facing the sea as mentioned in the trip. Second, the package mentioned a "fruit basket and wine" on arrival. But we got it only on the last day only after asking for it several times. Another disaster was the "candle light dinner" which was supposed to be romantic and pleasant but it was the worst dinner I ever had. Food served was cold and we were made to wait for atleast an hour for every course. I got so upset that we left the dinner in between. Even then nobody bothered or cared.

Dear Travelbooksmusic,

Firstly I would like to thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I also thank you the many positive comment despite having had 'dissapointing' incidents.

Your feedback on the location of the hotel, pool side, friendliness of the Team, food and clean rooms is much appreciated and we are well known for excelling in these areas.

However, your feedback on the Honeymoon extras and services relating to your Romantic Dinner is something which concerns me deeply. I personally apologize for this and assure you that I am looking into the matter. Your assistance in this would be much appreciated by means of an e-mail to the hotel for my attention / personal message on Tripadvisor. Your surname, room number and travel dates cannot be obtained here. I do hope that you contact me soon.

On a more pleasant note I again thank you for having chosen Jalsa Beach Hotel & Spa and congratulate you on the bond you have created.

Best wishes.

Exactly a week ago we left this very lovely hotel. In essence, the hotel staff really make this place. They are very attentive and friendly and given any opportunity cannot do enough for you. Richard the hotel manager genuinely care's about his staff (which was lovely to see) and it's clear that he pride's himself on offering guests the best possible care. This passion for customer service has filtered all the way down to the other managers, the reception and restaurant staff and finally the cleaners/maintenance staff - truly excellent particularly for a small 4* hotel.
The rooms are very pleasant (particularly the sea facing ones although the others look a very pretty well maintained garden) and I recommend 316 in particular which was gorgeous - it has its own terrace for sunbathing as well as a balcony. We thought it was definitely the best in the hotel and we were really looked after as they knew it was our delayed honeymoon/first wedding anniversary (thank you Richard for making sure we were 100% happy!).
The food was really great, especially the Indian and Mauritian food which was delicious (and which we're really missing now we're back!). If you can go all inclusive I recommend it. I thought it was great value and the juices, beer, wine and cocktails were fab.
The hotel only has sixty rooms so it's very quiet (perfect for honeymoon or getting away from it all). The hotel was well situated for a boat trip to Isle du Cerf and also Flaq if you wanted a little trip to the local market. Mauritian people are lovely and hopefully we will return. I must confess there were a few tears when we left the hotel!

Room Tip: 316 - private balcony and terrace with gorgeous shower.

Dear BelleL0nd0n,

On behalf of the entire Jalsa Beach Hotel & Spa Team I thank you for writing such a wonderful review and positive feedback. Your review serves as a great reward to a Team dedicated to providing personalized service catered to the individual needs of our guests. As a well travelled guest with multiple contributions on Tripadvisor this review means a lot to the Team!

We are pleased to read that you have experienced the warm welcome and service of Jalsa Beach Hotel & Spa. Perhaps I am repeating myself but as a relatively small hotel we operate like family and we are always eager to include our guests in the same manner. This sentiment is shared by the entire Team and we remain at the disposal of our guests.

I much appreciate the compliments but it is the Management and Team working beside me that truly deserves the praises. Without whom none of our successes could have been achieved. Furthermore the wonderful guests who choose to visit us makes it easy to deliver smiles and good service.

We send you our best wishes and sincerely hope to welcome you again soon.

Thank you!
