Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort

Reviewed July 15, 2013

Spent 1 week at the Le Telfair, arriving evening of 26 June and departing 3 July 2013. It is set in the most beautiful lush gardens and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The weather for the 'winter' was great as we experienced warm wind free days where we could swim and soak up the sun. We had the full-board package which included lunch which had a wide choice of different restaurants to choose from. Found the choice of dinners limited as the restaurants not allocated in the package were hugely over priced.The water-sports(water-skiing, snorkeling), were most days not operational as a result of low-tide. Also found the additional water sports (not included) over-priced. The staff are all exceptionally helpful and friendly. The surrounding area is quiet as there are few shops around. The fitness centre is well-equipped and our kids enjoyed spending time there. Teenagers could become bored at times as there is not much happening in entertainment at night (shows etc.) We would visit it again but for a shorter period and combine it with a stay at another resort on a different part of the island.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms facing the smaller pool area, private and direct access to beach.

Dear Mr and Mrs,

Allow me to thank you for having chosen The Heritage Le Telfair for your recent family holidays.I am glad to read that you've enjoyed your stay with us. I have taken good note of your comments which will for sure allow me to improve the offering. We sometimes need to do with the problem of tides concerning sea activities, fortunately this does not last long.

I will pass on your appreciation to the entire team who made your holidays an enjoyable one.

I do hope to get to welcome you and the family soon again as you mentioned that you will visit us again.

My best personal regards to you and to the family.

We made a last minute decision to escape to Mauritius for a once in a lifetime holiday and were offered an amazing deal by Beachtag to stay at Heritage Le Telfair. I was looking for a place that would keep two teenage girls and a 6 year old son happy as well as somewhere where my husband and I could have time to ourselves and just relax. The experience was beyond all our expectations from the architecture to the levels of service, the food, the atmosphere, the beach, the rooms and the live entertainment each evening. I had read through other reviews on Trip advisor and looked at as many pictures as I could find before we left and although a beautiful picture was painted, nothing came close to actually being there. I would like to thank the following people who made the trip extra special for us (I know that each person may spell their name differently so hope I get them mostly right): The lady who checked us in, 'Swaati', Ashley (maatjie) and Jimmy at Gin-Ja, Jeramie (love your smile and sense of humour), Suzy (who cleaned our room with a special touch and such care), Steve who taught me to do Tai Chi with 'a smile on my heart', Steeve who rollerbladed with my kids, Razi who took our son fishing under the bridge and taught him a new way of fishing with a recycled water bottle, Luciano who took so much care in showing Finn how to snorkel, Juaneeta who organised a dream 'bucket list' trip to swim with the dolphins, Paz, who ensured that Annabella's was our favourite place to eat, Rashni at the shop who went out of her way to help me, the ladies at Reception who helped me plan our day trip, 'Coco', (thanks for the paint sample!). I could write a few pages more but will end off here saying that it was simply the best holiday and we couldn't have asked for more.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor pool and sea facing room and loved it.

We have just returned home from spending ten days at Le Telfair. We had a superb holiday with excellent service from the moment we arrived until we said our goodbyes today. Special mention goes to Amar, who welcomed us and treated us with utmost professionalism whenever we crossed paths. The dining room staff at Annabella's were exceptional. Once again the service we received and friendly, courteous people were all outstanding. Chef Carl and his team provided excellent cuisine. I must mention Eddy, Selvyn, Lucinda, Kaviraj who made our dining experiences great. The accommodation and facilities were top-notch. Good job! We will be back next year...

This is a fantastic andimmaculate hotel made even better by wonderful staff.Their service was in excess of 5 star.From first entering the hotel to the day we left we were treated as house guests and always welcomed home! Our room was on the beach front,where you could hear the surf breaking on the coral reef from your bath! The gardens,pools,restaurants,reception,spa,gym,beach club,chateau,Ginja ,golf club and not forgetting The Cavendish bar were spotless and most professionally run.You were always made welcome.
The hotel is masterfully run by Lindley Tomen,who is highly visible and clearly cares a great deal for both the hotel and his staff. Sunil is his food and beverage manager,who constantly checks that the service remains in excess of 5 star.
Annita in reception,Vinay and Jonathan in The Cavandish bar,Parama Selven ,Gopal and the Don at the Palmeir, Miachael,Kris at Ginja, Kerwin and his wife,Mr Big,Annjilee,at Annabells.Amrish in guest relations.

My first time in Mauritius and I have fallen in love with this country. Heritage Le Telfair is everything we imagined it to be and more.

The welcome and concierge service was the start of excellence. Welcome drinks with a quick efficient check in process. Luggage delivered to our complimentary upgraded sea-view rooms, all ready and waiting to welcome our stay.

The rooms are well appointed: comfortable bed, interactive TV with messaging updates from the hotel desk and a large spacious bathroom with a relaxing rain shower.
The rooms, resort facilities and beaches are exactly as the pictures on the website depict them to be.
Cleanliness is a priority at this resort, the rooms were kept clean at all times and fresh towels ready and waiting when you return after venturing out.

We were on full board, excluded drinks. The meals were delicious and well presented. Chef Carl even had a special dish made for my family on request. We went out on tour one day and had delicious food in picnic boxes wrapped for us prior to departing on tour. The restaurants are great, we ate mainly at Ginga at night, due to Anabellas being under maintenance. The restuarant staff were simply the freindliest lot of people that were willing to make your experience such a pleasurable one. Thanks to Vikesh,Lucinda, Jimmy and Yas for their efficient and great service. Since we were leaving prior to lunch on the last day, Vikesh went out of his way to provide us lunch to take with and we appreciate his kindness. He also arranged for my parents to have a coconut drink from freshly cut coconuts :)
Lunches were had at the various restaurants including Infinity Blue and the Golf Club. All were delicious, including the ice creams for a cool down. For fine dining experience we ate at the Le Chateau Bel Ombre, and it is fine dining indeed. The low down is that the price of drinks are expensive.

The water sports,kids club plus sport facilities incluing snooker, tennis, board games, pool tables, table tennis, gym, golf course, pitch and putt and the 5 star spa compliment this resort tremendously.

My son was ill early hours of one morning and Abhishek at reception immediately arranged a comfortable taxi to take us to a clinic 45 minutes away. We were amazed at the care and affection shown to our son who recovered very quickly. There is a nurse facility available at Awali, next door and we also used this free of charge. The nurse was great to help my son stop a nose bleed from recurring. Great stuff is all I can say.

We stayed between 22-29 June and we had awesome weather, only a few rain showers in between.

Every evening there was a different band at Cavendish to entertain us and were served drinks by Jonathon and Jose, who were such great guys. All the staff, including the cleaners were always freindly and showed such enthusiasm in their work.

Thanks to Salim, who ensured that we had no issues and always willing to ensure that we were happy during our stay. Thanks Nishta and the ladies at reception for your freindly attitude and the same to all the staff at this great resort.
