Mauritius with 7 year old and 5 year old boys

Hi all

Desperately seeking sound advice on the best place to stay with our boys for our10th wedding anniversary in October. We have been on a lot of holidays in the last few years but have never found a great kids club to keep the boys entertained so we could enjoy downtime.

We have never been to Mauritius and would also like to renew our wedding vows. Ideally would like an all inclusive hotel but also need advice on what to look for when looking at all inclusive packages.

Help please....

Hi Pam

Mauritius does some excellent AI packages plus the kid's clubs are very good. Best AI package is at Shandrani which is part of Beachcomber group. www.beachcomber-hotels.com Most of their hotels offer AI but Shandrani is the best. We stayed at Le Victoria last year which is also a lovely hotel with huge rooms and great kid's club.

Most AI packages offer 3 meals a day with selected drinks ie local beers, juices, cocktails, some wines, tea, coffee, picnic baskets if you are out for the day, mini bar etc. Imported spirits are usually excluded. Also snacks and pancakes during the afternoons at the bar. That's where Shandrani comes into it's own as every single thing is included from arrival to departure. DE Bronia recently stayed there and was very impressed.

Other hotel groups that offer AI are Attitude hotels http://hotels-attitude.com/, Lux www.luxresorts.com/. World Leisure Holidays https://www.wlh.co.za/destinations/mauritius (this may be an SA site but you can at least read up on the various hotels). Some Veranda Resorts also do AI (not Grand Baie) veranda-resorts.com/hotel-mauritius/pointe-a…

Hope this gets you started in your search for the ideal spot to renew your vows and relax with your boys.

Le Victoria is a renowned family hotel. Good spot, with a nice beach and 15-20 mins drive to grand baie

Don't rule out the Awali, we had an amazing time with our 4 year olds and they couldn't do more for us as a family!
