very late to review sorry guys.
My wife and i stayed here in November to have a lovely eight days rest after a busy safari and a very stressful year at home.
We chose here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere with a beautiful tropical beach.
We paid for an upgrade to have one of the garden rooms which overlooked the beach and was well worth paying for location wise. Everything worked and they were of a good size.The rooms were not particularly luxurious with plain concrete slab floors and fairly basic fittings & furniture but the staff, food and the location more than make up for it.
We had clean linen everyday and our amazing room cleaner created a different linen towel themed animal or object which was really nice touch. Despite the rooms being a little tired they were always clean.
This is a very romantic setting and if you want to lay on a stunning white sandy beach and bathe in the beautiful crystal water this is the place to go. we saw at least three wedding ceremonies during the week which was very special. Beautiful kept gardens and beach everyday no rubbish!
We steered clear of the excursions laid on by the agents at the hotel because they were very over priced indeed. After speaking with some of the locals we decided to catch the express air conditioned bus and it cost about £2.50 return for both of us amazing value for money.
We found the local people were very friendly but there was very little luxury and a great deal of obvious poverty around which was sad but very interesting to see how the locals lived.
Food in the hotel was served on a buffet basis for all meals and you were given an excellent choice everyday with a different theme. We usually sat outside in the courtyard and loved watching the moon light every night. Food quality was good for a 600 seated restaurant but not really of a gourmet standard, you could eat what you wanted and as much as you wanted and it just depends on how fussy you are.Our advice is to only go fully inclusive if you are big drinkers otherwise half board is plenty.
generally the staff were helpful and cared abut the residents and made you feel very welcome
We did not try eating in any restaurants but did use the supermarket in the small local town to buy snacks and water etc.
Overall we had a lovely stay and we would stay in this hotel again if ever we were in that area of Mauritius
