We're planning to travel to Mauritius October 2013 and we're 2 adults and a 5y old boy. We would prefer AI resorts - we've been to Cuba and Mexico AI but after reading this forum I'm assuming that AI at Mauritius hotels can't be compared... Are there some that are better in terms of quality and choice of food? We're definitely not into counting coins and banknotes to buy drinks everyday...
Besides that, we would need a nice mini/kids-club, that could keep our boy busy and entertained. We've never been to a hotel with a kids club before so we're not quite sure what to look at... I've read some stuff about 2 Club Med resorts and they say they're not bad in terms of kids entertainment and food... but the beach - I wasn't quite impressed by photos.
And about the beach - is that right that I should now forget Cuban and Mexican beaches and those at Maurities would be inferior? So there's no need to compare them in my mind?
We are also considering Seychelles, but we could find any AI there and the price tag is a bit bigger. Would anyone give pro et contra for Mauritius vs Seychelles? Probably someone has travelled both destinations... as I mentioned, we're looking for a good beach, not planning to do much activities - just a lazy week, preferably AI not to worry about all those extra drinks etc, and a nice kids club.
Thanks everyone in advance for proper and useful advice!
