“Wonderful”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

This has been one of our favourite holidays, it's been lovely from the very start to the very end.
We cannot fault the hotel at all the staff have been great and very attentive, the rooms are lovely with comfy beds and although we were in a room near the bars we never had any problems with noise from them. They were also cleaned every day and towels changed.
We have enjoyed the food in the restaurant and always managed to find something to eat (diet needs to start as soon as we land) our little girl loved the fresh pancakes that were made mid afternoon.
The kids club is very good with lovely caring staff our little girl loved it. We have never used a kids club before but found it so nice to have time to relax knowing she was safe.
The pool area was alway kept clean and tidy, we had no problems with getting sun beds whenever we wanted to be by the pool.
The beach again was alway kept tidy and sun beds were always seemed to available. Beach towel are included with the all inclusive package and can be changed every day if needed.
We also took advantage of the peddle boats and the glass bottom boat trip these can be booked on the day but can get booked up early.
We booked a days speed boat trip with Raj on the beach and had the most fantastic day visiting an island,a waterfall and having a BBQ on the beach. This has to be one of the ways to see the wonders of Mauritius.
The market is held in flacq on a Sunday or Wednesday it's a taxi drive away and should cost around 500 rupees (see Raj) return the driver will wait for you. We loved the experience be prepared to haggle and all stall holders approach you.
Belle mare is a short walk along the beach it's not a busy place and has just a few shops but worth a visit.
Snorkelling can be done in the cordoned off beach area or on organised trips, at the end of day when the speedboats have finished we found it was quite safe to go beyond the cordoned area but still be aware of some boats.
We would recommend this holiday to anyone and we would come back here.

“On the Beach”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stayed here for 7 nights. Hotel is located right on a very nice Beach and most rooms comes with a sea view, if you travel without children, then ask for a room close to the sea, they seem to be a bit more quite. We stayed on All Inclusive, but if your are on an BB solution your options for dinner in and around the Hotel are very limited. All in all a great Hotel, only neck side is that there is NOT enough sunbeds, so if you sleep later than until 7 o'clock in the morning, your sunbed will. on the sand. Food in the Restaurant is a bit rich and options are a bit few, so lunch and dinner looks after a few days a lot alike.

“Friendly hotel”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

- Smaller hotel with pool, bar, spa
- I recommend for individuals, couples and families with children
- Beach - beach service - regular exchange of towels, etc.; the beach bar
- Possibility to use the children playground
- Weddings arranging
- Equipment simple, but comfortable and quite clean
- Attentive and friendly staff
- Evenings underway music, dance and animation programs on the dance floor by the pool and bar
- Food + / - I evaluate 3-4 (selection, but not too much variation), I would appreciate a greater variety of fishes and seafood
- Spa - focusing in particular on massage therapy - a very pleasant environment and massages are great
