Resort Nationality question

Hi

Having read a few reviews and still a little undecide on which resort to settle on, can anyone give me any advice on the blend of nationality at some resorts.

I am looking at the pointe aux biches and have read a lot of the feedback reviews which seem to mention there are lots of French and other nationalities at the resort, dont get me wrong i dont mind this :-), but i was wondering can anyone let me know if there are other english speaking visitors at this resort aswell as we like to socialise and meet others while away

Thanks

Most hotels have a mixture of Italian, French, German, Italian, South African, Australian, Indian and British. PAB is also pretty cosmoplitan. The Paul et Virginie has quite a few British visitors and is part of Veranda group same as PAB.

Personally I find the interaction between different nationalities fascinating. A good excuse to practise my limited language skills!

I've spokened to the resort staff at the Sugarbeach, La Pirogue, le Tousrok, le Coco, and a one resort in Grand Baie. And they all seem to be able to speak pretty good english in the sense that you could understand them!

I've been to a clubmed in the Carribean before and ALL of THEM are French speaking... it gets quite lonely at times and hard to communicate. However, this is definitely not the case in Mauritius.

So don't worry and have a good trip.

Cheers,

Suying
