“Flic En Flac................probably not!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Let me say there are lots of good things to say about this hotel, the location virtually on the beach and the friendly staff are just two. The downside is the food is very avaerage and some of the rooms are in serious need of refurbishment.

Also, Flic En Flac is a little dissapointing, beautiful beach and clear blue sea, but not much else in truth. What restaurants there are, serve pretty basic stuff.

If you are considering Mauritius, I would spend the money and pick out a 5 star beach resort, where you stay on campus, and accept the fact that you will have a two week beach holiday with limited opportunities to get out and see stuff. That said, there are some brilliant boat trips which are well worth the effort! Dont forget to haggle!

Spoke to several tourists who had booked a 3 week trip and they all said it was too long because there wasn't enough to do.

Equally the twns in the "interior" are not worth the effort of getting there.

Watch out with the taxi's, they are expensive, although thet were very reliable.

My family and I have just spent about 10 days in this lovely and pretty new hotel situated few steps away from the white-sandy beach of flic en flac. The staff is extremely kind (both the receptionists and the waiters/ waitresses) and it is committed to help you and make your stay the best possible. Every evening there is a different buffet menu, which includes mauritian, indian, asian etc specialities. While dining the guests are untertained by a nice musician playing guitar and mouth-organ. The rooms are wide, nicely furnished and well equipped (air conditioning, fridge, kettles with tea bags available). On a terrace of the hotel with a nice view to the town of flic en flac there is a small swimming pool, which can be accessed for free by the customers (just like the small fitness centre).
We recommend the aanari hotel for its location in a quite area near to the beach and some shops and for its kind staff, which contributed to make our stay in Mauritius great!

I can´t share some comments here. We stayed in July 2012 for 2,5 weeks in Aanari Hotel and we had a nice stay.The staff Hans (Reception), Sunil, Raguh (Restaurant), Geraldine (Spa) and the rest of the staff, I don´t know by names were very friendly and did everything to feel well. During the day we had to work so we didn´t use all the facilities. But the massages I can recommend. You feel complete recovered. Thank you Geraldine!!!! The food was good. Every evening they had different topics.Maybe there could be some changes with breakfast. The rooms were always clean and the housekeeping changed the towels twice a day. Thank´s also to lady from housekeeping, who brought us so much coffee;-). In November we have to go back for work and we probably will stay in Aanari Hotel again. The staff makes the hotel to what it is. Thank´s to all and see you.

Just off the beach road, this was a beautiful property. Located in the quieter part of Mauritius, the lobby, open air restaurant and bar is built upon a deck like structure overlooking the road and has beautiful architecture and interiors.The hotel provides a beach towels and sun deck for a day out on the beautiful beach just across the road. Live, interactive music and buffet meals of a different world cuisine everyday, made for an excellent dining experience, though the food itself was a little lacking.
Mauritian hospitality is renowned and these guys do justice to that well-deserved reputation of making their guests feel at home. Rooms were clean and well-maintained..though the bathrooms of the twin-bed rooms, that I shared with my brother, did not have any locks, had translucent door. I realize I was probably put up on the floor that housed couples - hence rooms should be selected carefully.

I was offered stay at Aanari as Jhalsa was unavailable for accomodations during my duration of stay. Aanari is located right on the beach, (though a road separates it from the beach), walk out of the hotel and onto the beach. The beach view from your room is blocked by the trees . It has a beautiful lagoon, take your own snorkeling equipment, you will enjoy it.

Though modest, the hotel decor is above average. The F&B manager Mr Soonil is very hospitable alongwith the staff Davina and Yohan. The hotel has very limited Gym facilities and an extremely small swimmig pool. (to compensate, go out in the loagoon to swim and you will have an experience of a lifetime).

We were on Half board package (breakfast and dinner included). I must say that the spread is more than appealing for the Non Vegetarian guest. Very Very limited options for vegetarian folks though you can request for, and they will get it for you.

It is ideally located, with the police station just opposite, SPAR supermarket is in the same complex, Thomas Cook, Barclays and SBM ATM all just a 3 minute walk from the hotel. For the foodies, try the food kiosks on the beach serving a variety of fares or else a walk just down the road will provide you with plenty of options. The hotel has free internet in the lobby, limited in the room.

A trip to "Ile Au Cerf" island, Chamarel, the fort and the water sports are a must for the young. Most of these will be covered in the South and North sightseeing. You can try the catamaran cruise in the night as well as a BBQ night on the island -- this will be all at personal expense though.

Overall an enjoyable experience.

I stayed for 3 nights and was vefy impressed with the quality of the service and friendliness of the
hotel staff. They were always obliging andsmiled and were all concerned that we were enjoying ourselves. Food was lovely and fresh and promply served with a smile.
Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. the hotel is across the road from a swimming beach
and the hotel provides beach towels.. Lovely hotel, sure beats an large and impersonal resort.
I highly recommend that people stay here.

Room Tip: deluxe room is spacious
