“Exceptional But Tired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

An exceptional location with exceptional staff who can't do enough for you. Linda, the wedding co-ordinator is indeed a very special lady, nothing too much trouble and a brilliant host for the special day. The prestige cottage was a little tired and needed refurbishment, air conditioning unit leaked, toilet handle loose, light fittings loose, mostly cosmetic items in many ways but in no way did it spoil our honeymoon. All inclusive is very good value. We would strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Prestige cottages on the beach are well worth the extra

What a fantastic time we had here! We were treated like celebrities from the word go! We enjoyed every single moment, and would recommend it to anyone! We are still daydreaming about the wonderful service, tranquility, clear water and coctails!

We took the full-board option, and this suited us perfect! Charka restaurant is an absolute must, as well as snorkeling with the glass bottom boat and Catamaran Cruise.

Can't wait to plan our next trip to this marvellous resort!

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Preskil Beach in early May and have given time to consider our time there. Overall I would say the resort is value for money considering the prices you can pay in Mauritius. The beach villa we stopped in (Which was not on the beach) was very spacious and well appointed, the view was beautiful over the lagoon. The food you could not moan about (Don't expect any seafood?), we were all inclusive and had unlimited use of all three restaurants. The steak house and beach restaurants were very good, romantic and most of the time you were well looked after. The main restaurant got very busy early on so we would advise you dine after eight. The service in the main restaurant was hit and miss, some of the waiters/waitresses were very good others did not know how to open a bottle of wine? Many of the staff were very young and we had the impression it was a training camp for better hotels.

If you are in your 40's, going on honeymoon and can afford it go somewhere a little more special as the honeymoon package offered left a lot to be desired. No bubbly, no chocolates and all the 'special' meals incurred a surcharge for seafood and location. We did enjoy the free massage though, but were not sure about what to say about the fruit platter (see picture) it was clearly a joke.

The highlights for us were the location, food and Footprints the resident band, sharpen up Preskil Beach on your attention to detail.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a villa, the penthouse is you can afford it

We spent 10 days at Preskil Beach and had excellent attention from all the staff, they could not have been any more helpful. We must thank Linda who organised our daughters wedding. She is a special lady and nothing was too much trouble for her.
The Beach Boys provide a brilliant service. We were All Inclusive and this was a bonus as we never had anything extra added to our bill at the end of the holiday. Well done to all at Preskil Beach. It was also good to use the two alternative restaurants where also they provided good choice within the All Inclusive package.
The TV channels could have been improved as reception is poor but , hey , do you need to watch TV on hols! Would certainly go again.

Room Tip: Lagoon room was superb

I have stayed at the Preskil ,about 7 or 8 times , and each visit is an unique ,and wonderful experience .Of course ,I will return ,sooner rather than later.I have travelled solo ,occasionally with my Husband ,and sometimes with my Grandson , it makes no difference , because the staff are so wonderfully friendly ,that you never feel alone .The atmosphere from your first welcome drink , to your farewell ,is so warm and genuine ,that it is truly a delight to be a guest .
The choice of food, particularly if you are All Inclusive , is amazing .Love Chakka ,restaurant, the steaks ,are to die for .The majority ,of water sports are free , including the skiing , great fun ,and the snorkelling off the glass bottom boat ,is mind blowing .
Perhaps the evening entertainment ,could be improved on , but hand on heart ,I am probably saying this because I have seen it so often .The grounds ,are very well maintained ,and the exotic blooms are an added bonus ,should you just want an evening stroll .I hope that this review ,may help the undecided , and if you are looking for a wedding venue , you will be pampered from day one.

Room Tip: Stayed in 183 ,on the croquet lawn , clear sea view ,near to all ,but cocooned from any noise ,from...

Beautiful and cosy hotel with a lovely beach area.
Very quiet and peaceful. very few kids. We (a couple) stayed overnight for a weekend which was indeed too short. It was an indian night with yummy food and a wonderful night show.
Hotel rooms are cosy and nice.We had a really wonderful view from our room. We loved the pizza restaurant on the beach as well as the activities offered especially the glass bottom trip in the lagoon.
There was only one thing which we didnt quite like: the staff was a bit cold in their approach but not at all rude. But we'll definitely give it another go whenever we can.

Room Tip: We had a grounfloor lagoon room with a breathtaking view of the beach. Room 178 to be exact. This wa...

We had seen mixed reviews but found to our happy surprise the place was idyllic and ticked all the right boxes as it was June we did have a couple of cloudy days but It would seem unfair to blame that on the resort!
Food varied and good in the evening if a little predictable at lunch but all perfectly cooked and served, the room was clean well appointed and comfortable.
The resort is well away from the main centres on the island and that was good for us as we wanted quiet but could be a nuisance for those wanting evening or days out etc.
Staff were responsive and helpful and the place top notch cannot wait to go back.
