We have just returned from a great two weeks stay in Le Meridien in Mauritius with my wife and two small kids.
When we’ve decided to make our first trip to Mauritius I spent a lot of time to choose the hotel to stay at.
We were very lucky to pick Le Meridien hotel!
Le Meridien is a great choice for family holiday. Kids are welcomed and find beautiful and safe environment in the hotel.
There are many things we liked about the hotel. Let me list some of them:
Location – hotel is directly o a beautiful long beach in the west/northern part of the island. This is area with the best weather in Mauritius.
Beach – beautiful long sandy beach with plenty of sunbeds. Different type od ocean access from rocky to sandy with no deep water. To access the ocean protective shoes are recommended because of stones and coral pieces in some parts of the bottom.
Hotel staff – almost everyone we have met from the employees were very helpful, nice and friendly. Answer to my question “How or where can I do this or that?” was mosty : Ï’ll do that for you!”. Special thanks to guest relations manager Ahmed for his help.
Hotel layout and facilities – we found everything we needed in the hotel. Pool, bars, restaurants, gym, spa, kids club, kids playground. View from our room was unforgetable.
Free “toys and games” on the beach and in the ocean – water skiing, windsurfing, glass bottom boat, snorkling trips, kayaks, sail boats... everything right there free of charge. I have tried everything I could.
Food – in all restaurants, including the main one buffet style 180, was great! Especialy dinners with Italian, French and seafood theme were perfect.
To be fair, it’s necessary to mention that there also some negative things that would need improvement:
Dated furniture and interiors – already mentioned many times here. Hotel is in the environment that is affecting state of wood and everything used. I hope that investment in repairs is comming soon. Managing of restaurant waiters – having restaurant myself I could not believe how disorganized they were. Our table was at the same time serviced by at least five different waiters. Orders were often late and we’ve never managed to complete our lunch or al a carte dinner in less than two hours.
Little and bit bigger animals – for someone could be disturbing finding some insect and geckos in the room. Unpleasant were also birds in restaurants not only outside but also inside. Birds were sometimes eating and drinking directly from guests plates and glasses while they were getting some more food. My wife has real phobia of birds and she has experienced some hard times in the restaurants.
BUT, these negatives were not disturbing us so much and we had great times in Le Meridien and will come back to this hotel again for sure!
Hopefully will be there again next winter!
