Astroea Beach is literally paradise. If you're looking for a resort with lots to do, evening entertainment and other Brits to mingle with then you won't find it here. Instead what you get is peace and quiet, which is so rare coming from London, a beautiful beach with no fights for a sun lounger, the best customer service I have experienced (it even tops American customer service), fantastic food and cocktails and the deluxe room with terrace was huge.
The staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble at all. My boyfriend and I were slightly concerned with how spicy the food would be. The choice of food some may say is limited, you have two choices of starter, main and dessert but in all honesty if you don't like what's on the menu then just request something you do fancy and we were never refused our choice.
The food is superb. We were looking for classic Mauritian dishes and this is what we got. Also thrown into the mix a spaghetti bolgnese too, which you can never go wrong with. The lunch choice was a lot larger, not sure why, but I loved the classic Mauritian dishes which were also offered here too.
The hotel does offer some activities, including kayaking, pedalo, snorkelling equipment. I think they need to advertise this more. We weren't informed about this upon arrival but noticed after a couple of days the hut on the beach was for us to hire equipment from. We were also not informed about the beach towels that you could collect from reception.
The evenings are very quiet, but if you enjoy the company of your partner then you won't struggle! However perhaps the hotel could provide some board games for guests to play with, good game of scrabble over a rum and coke would prove interesting.
I wanted to say a special thank you to Jessen, Maelly, Vanesha, Alan and Jonathan. They really made our stay and I always looked forward to seeing them in the evening and having a conversation with them. They also helped us with tips of what to see on the island. Rita, was also really helpful and so polite and always with happy. She made great recommendations on what to see on the island.
All in all a fantastic stay. Thank you so much for making us feel welcome! We look forward to coming again in the future and miss the staff, sun, sea and sand already
