We stayed here last July after arriving in Mauritius and discovering that the villa that we had booked and paid for did not exist and we had been defrauded by a somewhat infamous Mauritius resident. Somewhat depressed and with nowhere to stay we found Esprit-Libre through Tripadvisor. It had changed hands and was now owned and run by Jerome, a lovely, helpful and knowledgeable host. He will advise restaurants, arrange taxis and for us organised estate agents to show us suitable apartments - beyond the call of duty!
The rooms are beautifully furnished in an understated, relaxing way. Breakfast was lovely - especially the Pain Perdu, there is a lounge with a bar area which is small and friendly with an honours system in the evening. There is also an outside bar area.There is free WI-FI (why can't the large hotels provide this?), and DVD's to borrow. There is a pool with a sitting area around it. Some of the rooms have their own small patio and also sofas in the room. Jerome has recently refurbished additional rooms - all to a high standard and has family rooms which actually provide privacy for parents. The restaurant is open for lunch - not every day - and the food is fresh and good and service is definitely with a smile. We returned to Mauritius this January and went back for lunch which was very good.
Mon Choisy has a good public beach and some good restaurants. The bus to Grand Bai leaves from close to the hotel.
This is a great choice if you are looking for a quality place without the bling of the large hotels and with relaxed but efficient service.
