“Fantastic honeymoon!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We spent amazing 12 days in LUX Belle Mare resort this Feb. Professional, happy and friendly staff always prepared to serve you with top quality service....special thanks to guys in the Bar :-). The food was simply excellent, delicious cuisine (every day different cuisine event) in all 4 restaurants. Our room was large, every day clean, situating in the garden with the sea view...amazing. We truly do recommend a stay at LUX Belle Mare to all who would like to spent unforgettable moments on this wonderfull island. We will definitely return back ....! Zuzana & Pavel from Czech Republic

After changing rooms to a Junior suite which is one of the newer Kelly Hoppen rooms we were really happy, the Honeymoon suite we were initially in was very dated and tired looking, changing rooms was no problem and handled smoothly by Viraje on reception who was very accomadating.

This hotel is fabulous in every way, the standard of the food in the restaurants is fantastic, we especially liked The Beach with really fresh sauces on the pastas and lovely fish and steaks.
The Spa is worth a visit for a pamper, i had a really good reflexology treatment.
The location is obviously stunning and the beach is literally swept free of seaweed etc every day, the beach is as spotless as the hotel.

The staff here are wonderful, Marius tried his very best to arrange a honeymoon beach breakfast for us but we were happy just doing our own thing, Fabrice in the coffee shop is lovely and makes a fabulous coffee with all beans roasted on the premises. The guys on the beach are lovely and Nitesh deserves a special mention. Too many staff to mention but they really are warm and friendly which all adds to making the stay so special.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly refurbished room!

We have recently returned from this lovely Hotel having spent 2 weeks between 29th January and 12th February.
A lot has already been said in previous reviews about what to expect at Lux Belle Mare and we can certainly endorse much of what has already been reported.
The hotel is situated on a beautiful beach with white sand and crystal clear blue/ turquoise sea that is inviting and warm to swim in.
The beach is regularly kept clean and swept by local people so it is always in top condition.
This is a very large hotel complex spanning the beach and extending back into its own grounds, you need to take the daily orienteering tour to appreciate just where everything is and what’s on offer.
It is promoted as being family friendly and certainly attracts many guests with their children, something to bear in mind if you are wishing to escape from having children around, however there is plenty of space on the beach or in the grounds to find a quiet spot.
We had one of the new recently refurbished rooms that overlooked the sea; it was clean, very spacious and well maintained by our room maid.
The room had two fridges and if you are on the All Inclusive package (AI) like us, includes some of the drinks in the fridge, coke, sprite, local beer, water, it does not however included the wine, hotels own branded water, various bottles of spirits located in a drawer. Although these spirits are available to AI guests at the hotels bars it would have been nice to use these to have a gin and tonic or similar on our balcony before dinner, perhaps the hotel may consider this and instead of placing the larger bottles of spirits in the rooms just include the small miniatures per occupant then this consumption can be easily controlled?
The night before we left a mini iPad appeared in our room, I was informed that these had just been rolled out and you can use it to look at facilities in the hotel book the restaurants and access the internet.
One very good aspect of this hotel is that free wi-fi is available throughout the whole complex, rooms, public areas, around the pool and onto the beach area, this has been greatly improved and the signal is excellent, we were able to pick up e-mails, browse the internet and Skype our friends and family at home without any problems or break in signal.
Failing all that the phone box to phone home free of charge is a real nice touch.
The hotel has a number of dinning areas, The Kitchen, which is the large buffet dinning room where breakfast is taken by all guests, occasional lunches and evening dinner; East, which is a la carte, opens for Dinner serving contemporary Asian cuisine; Senses exclusive restaurant showcases Indian and Indian ocean dishes; the Bar which is open for lunch snacks and Beach Rouge the new dinning area directly overlooking the beach which is open at lunchtime and for dinner.
If you are on the AI package you can dine in all of these restaurants except Senses where you have to pay extra, you also need to watch out as occasionally East served dinners where a further supplement is charged to AI guests such as on the Asian Tapas night.
There is also the ice cream parlour ICI located next to the pool area where ice cream is included in the AI package, however this did not include fresh juices which was a shame.
And finally Café LUX in the hotel foyer where various coffees, cakes and biscuits can be obtained.
Overall the food is of a high standard particularly the dinning experience in Beach Rouge is preferable to the Kitchen, where buffets can be just a bit okay. We had a lovely meal in both Senses and East, our recommendation at other times is to dine at Beach Rouge, you need to book on an evening but it is open on lunchtime without booking.
Service in the Restaurants and bar areas can generally be good depending on the members of staff, sometimes it can be a bit hit and miss in the Kitchen where they are occasionally slow to cope with clearing and re-setting tables, and the pool/beach area service could be more attentive to guests requirements.
However most staff are friendly and welcoming with big smiles.
The Hotel have a dress code for evening but we did not see it enforced, this is okay for those that wish to dress in a very casual style but we liked to make the effort on an evening and wear reasonably smart outfits.
Water sports are available free of charge including water-skiing, sailing, glass bottom boat rides etc. this is all run from the Hotels Boathouse where staff were always pleasant and helpful.
The management are dedicated to ensuring that all guests enjoy their stay, this is genuine as they do appreciate that an operation of this size can bring with it the odd problem or issue, we particularly would highlight Jennifer who we met on arrival on the first day and subsequent to that she remembered our names and always made a point of speaking to us and asking if everything was okay, when we did have an issue this was quickly and speedily addressed to more than our satisfaction.
Having returned from this hotel we have recommended it to a member of our family who immediately booked it for 10 days in March, and in a couple of weeks time will be flying out with his wife to celebrate his recent marriage, they are very keen on water sports in particular sailing and will make the most of what’s on offer as well as the other facilities and hospitality offered here.

Room Tip: Newly refurbished rooms are preferable as the older rooms appear to look a bit dated with dark furni...

Had a lovely holiday in the Belle Mare. Good location, great food, lovely staff. Special thanks to the housekeeper who recognised that it was my birthday & made a lovely display on the bed, a beautiful touch. Only negative was the service in restaurants wasn't always great, but overall pretty good. Loved the activities where we met some lovely people, which made our holiday extra special.

Having today (23rd Feb 2014) just returned from Mauritius, it was our overriding priority, to let as many liked minded people, (ie hard working family, seeking a top quality all inclusive destination & hotel without being overpriced or pretentious ) just how superb this Hotel was.
The whole experience was fabulous, from start to finish. Professional, happy & courteous staff, 1st class cuisine, excellent facilities for all age groups & activity levels.
My family & I run our own business & work every hour of every day to ensure we have great holidays every year, all over the world.
The Lux Belle Mare and its whole ethos has taken us to wonderful new level.

For the third consecutive year, I went to Lux Bellemare and this time was for a longer stay: 3 weeks. Everything is outstanding and marvelous, I would not try going elsewere to feel perfectly happy and relaxed. The staff is extremely helpful, efficient, generous and the rooms, restaurants, bars and facilities are like a dream. You are living in a marvelous postcard when you stay there. One of our great moments was a dinner in the Gazebo that my husband requested for my birthday; the "ambiance" and dinner were the most romantic I ever enjoyed. I now wait for my next trip to Lux Bellemare which I hope will be for at least one month. I almost felt no need to go outside the hotel and of its restaurants: they reach the perfection.
