“Not bad, not fantastic either”
Reviewed April 19, 2007

We stayed there for 3 days in August 2006. We had paid for a standard room but gave us un upgrade for free. The rooms was very nice and had been recently re-done.
The hotel is directly on the (very large) beach of Flic and Flac. However the sea is less spectactular than in other places in Mauritius and the village has nothing to offer: so, you'll spend all your time in the hotel which also does not hace many facilities. Only one pool, by the restaurant, which is more or less OK.
Food however was VERY disappointing: really mediocre. Moreover it was very international: what you could erat eveywhere. Pity is you consider you are on an island rich in fish, game, exatic fruits and vegetables.
So, it is ok because tariffs are very reasonable. But I'd spend more and go to a nicer hotel, perhaps in another location on the isle.

We loved the villa, just 3 metres to the beach, two rooms, large shower room & toilet, tv in main room, fully fitted kitchen, located just 3 minutes LAZY walk to the supermarket.

Fantastic shows for the guests on Saturday nights, traditional Segga shows, bands, dancing & reasonably priced bar. Great service from all the staff.

This was our second stay there, but on other occasions we booked local bungalows but we had visited it as evening guests, mainly for the shows on Saturday nights or for evening meals, they have a great menu & a very good Indian Chef who can also create the most delicious Indian Curries, fish, meat & vegetarian food besides the local fayre and European dishes. All the menus are very reasonably priced.

We will be back Villas Caroline.

  • Liked — The polite & helpful staff, cleanliness and attention to detail
  • Disliked — Occasional insect detected, but expected on a tropical island!

Stayed for 4 nights in December 2006. Rooms were nice and clean with big bathrooms and sea view. It is on a nice stretch of beach in Flic and Flac with fantastic snorkelling off the beach. Very nice indian restaurant in the hotel.

Hotel itself was a bit unorganised, we booked a bungalow but didn't get it even though the hotel was pretty quiet, they gave us a few free meals but they definitely had regular room problems and give away a lot of meals and drinks to compensate when they should just be a bit better organised!

As we went in December they had massive corporate events in the hotel every night which got bigger as the days went on, this did take over the hotel in the evening, the largest one only left a couple of tables for dinner and they cordoned off most of the bar, which wasn't ideal. The hotel also had a bit of a holiday camp feel.

It was a good base to explore and Black River Gorges national park and there is an excellent diving school in the hotel who gave me a free refresher course as well as taking me diving. Domaine anna restaurant nearby is meant to be excellent but we couldn't get a table so need to book ahead. Preferred the Troux aux Biches area in the north overall though, stay at La Sakoa.
