Just returned from a 3 week holiday to Le Palmiste which was booked at the last minute after getting good information from Prestontraveller who had stayed there in August.
In fact Prestontravellers review is a very accurate summary of our stay there although a few changes were taking place.
A new Marketing Director has been appointed and started at the beginning of September and is very keen to raise the standards in all the areas of the hotel.He spent a lot of time in the restaurant checking that the temperature of the food was right and that enough food was available for people who ate after 8,00pm.
The food was good and we never had the same food over our 3 week stay.We did ask the chef to add just a liitle salt in our omelettes in a morning which were fine - otherwise they would have been over seasoned looking at how much they used for other peoples omelettes.
A notice board is positioned outside the restaurant showing activities for the evening and a notice asking people to respect the dress code for the evening meal.
A good number of British guests were there during our stay together with French,German and Indian guests and on one weekend a group of Mauritians arrived for a weekend stay.
The staff are brilliant - Sarah kept our room immaculate and Vanessa,Babita,Anousha,Suren and Prakesh looked after us in the restaurant.
The Marketing Director was keen to get our views and as he said that the honeymoon period was nowhere near over so my feeling is that this hotel is only going to get better.
