“Beachcomber Le Canonnier”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Our stay was spectacular. Food was really amazing. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a garden view room - it was very basic but very neat and clean. Snorkelling was just amazing. The water was crystal clear and we saw so many fish. If there is anything to complain about it was that people were allowed to smoke in the restaurants and us not being smokers absolutely hated this.

Room Tip: We had a garden facing room. It was very basic but clean and it only had a shower.

The hotel, food and service around it was great and resulted in a very relaxing break. One suggestion is that the bar service is extended to the pool and beach. Cocktails are poured with a heavy hand so ask for extra mixers.

The beach was so nice. You could snorkel right in front and see beautiful fishes. There was always something to do. The food was excellent. The staff was friendly. it is close to the markets in Grand baie for those who want to go shopping.

Room Tip: for family, the best is to stay in the flats that has got two seperate rooms and bathrooms

Stayed at this hotel in March 2012, had really been excited about this holiday, as my daughter had lived and worked at the nearby hospital (albeit 12 years ago when she had just qualified). OMG Mauritius has changed beyond the photos/video from those days. Le Cannonnier is not far from Grande Baye which has an abundance of shops, harbour, restaurants and nightlife. Our room was very disappointing, we were in the corner right beside the restaurant, which was the smoking side, also the huge fans from the kitchen were just along from our tiny balcony. I immediately went to reception to ask to have our room change (what a hassle), they could not do anything for at least another day. Meanwhile went back to unpack and we found huge cockroaches on the floor tiles, I know in an exotic country everything is larger, but this was not a good start. We were moved to a garden room on the far side some 2 days later which was much nicer. The hotel is very clean, the food good, the staff in the main friendly and helpful. Biggest disappointment the beach, take shoes to wear as the coral is sharp, particularly in the sea where there is some large rocks, the hotel has to sides to its beaches, the east side is always very windy and least popular you will always find a sun lounger. However the other side has the nicer beach and is very popular (towels out at dawn if you want that space). The restaurant above this beach is great for views, lunch or pre-book diner, the food superb and a credit to the chef and staff who work their. We hired a car and travelled the island, yes its lovely, but no I would not go back, once seen and so many changes to what I had expected. Still that is our opinion, please do not let this deter you - its a long flight, but if its on your to do holiday list then go for it and enjoy everything the country has to offer.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a sea view on the west side to see the sunset - lovely.

This is a fantastic place where spend your holidays in full of relax.
The beaches around the resort are fantastic, also the sea and the sport activities that you can do there.
There are some restaurants and the food is quite good.
The pool is fantastic and huge, so you can swim if, but is impossible, you can't go to the sea.
The resort is far away to the city, but you can hire a car or book a private or in a group tour around at the marvel Mauritius.
Fantastic place, sometimes rather noisy

We spent one week at the Le Cannonier last week on a full board basis and had a blast. The staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Upon our arrival late at night at 21:45 we were greeted with a cool facecloth and a fruit juice which was very welcoming! We were booked into our room within 10 mins and were sent to have dinner in the Italian restaurant on site whilst our luggage was taken to our room by a porter. During unpacking we noticed that the toilet in our bathroom was leaking water on the floor. After reporting it to the night cleaning staff, maintenance staff arrived to fix it within 10 mins of reporting the problem. Very impressive.

The hotel has the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the towel art everyday is a sight to behold. As I find the duvets to hot to sleep under in such warm climates, I requested an extra sheet to be used as a top sheet to sleep under and my request was attended to immediately.

The food at the buffet section and the beach restaurant was excellent. There really was something every day to suit all tastes. The only complaint was all the Rhum in the cocktails.

Snorkling on the beach was amazing as the reefs are extensive. Only thing is to remember to bring "booties" or simular shoes to swim or walk on the beach with as there are a lot of dead coral on the beach and in the sea.

We will definately visit there again!

Room Tip: Good rooms are those closest to the beach as they are away from the pool area which tends to be nois...
