Located in the center of Black-River, Esplanade's location offers everything from local shops and restaurants to the privacy of a very beautiful beachfront. Esplanade is a high-end accommodation facility completed by tasteful interiors and spectacular sea views. The garden is extra special as it homes an extraordinary Banyan tree that provides a magical setting for evening drinks under its branches. The infinity pool is surrounded by a deck, comfy loungers and umbrellas where you can enjoy views of the sea and even le Morne Mountain.

All the apartments in the first floor do not have a balcony, a really strange architecture for a tropical place. To us it is absolutely ridiculous that the elevator may only be used by the penthouses, guests in the first floor have to handcarry their luggage upon check-in and

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We are really sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at Esplanade. Indeed, not all our apartments consist of a balcony. However, we do consider specific requests from guests and make sure we accommodate them to their needs. Unfortunately, the elevator is, in fact, only used by the guests at the penthouse which is privately owned; but at no point did we promise that our apartments come with lift access. We apologise for this inconvenience. On the other hand, our staff offered to help with the luggage upon check-in, although they, unfortunately, could not be present upon check-out because of the inconvenient timing. Moreover, the furniture was in good condition; we organise regular check-ups for the standard and quality of our apartments. As for the mosquitoes, we proposed a solution: to close all doors and to switch on all VAPE diffusers (mosquito repellents) and the A/C on very low temperature for about 1.5 to 2 hours every early evening. Nevertheless, Mauritius is a tropical island and thus mosquitoes are expected in this warm weather. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any more cause for concern. We gladly welcome your feedback and are open to discussion. Sincerely, The Horizon Holidays team.

Hi, Greetings from Horizon Holidays! There are normally sunny days in February. But, it is also the cyclonic period and the weather can change from sunny to rainy rapidly. Can i have your name? I will put a special request for you to be in a ground floor unit. But, we do not guarantee the floor as it may occur that we move your booking to another apartment before your arrival. Kind regards, Kate
