On entry to Mauritius do we have to produce our certificate of recent innoculations?
Also - is it very windy at the Ambre Hotel?
No you don't have to produce evidence of innoculations. I always keep up to date with the usual ones though,ie. tetanus, typhoid, hep.A and polio.
What time of the year are you travelling? the wind on the East can be troublesome in July/August.
Hi Mazza - thanks for the info and your quick response.
We have a deal on the table for the 11th Sept - have read reviews and all seems wonderful apart from the odd few blips.
Ohh - is it true that bottled water is very expensive?
No bottled water is cheap if you buy it in mini markets etc., it is bit pricey in hotels, although we pay too much here in UK for it in my opinion.
Hope the plans all go through OK
Thanks for all the info Mazza - just haggling between agents trying to get the best deal - one is flying with Emirates and one with Air France - as long as there are seat back tv's I dont mind but the price is better if it is lower :)
Then fly Emirates. I have flown both Emirates and Air France and AF use old 747s on the MRU route with old fashioned overhead screens, but Emirates ICE IFE is the best IME with over 800 channels on demand.
Also CDG is not the best user friendly airport. The new Terminal 3 in Dubai is easier to navigate and much more user friendly.
Re the Ambre, I stayed here a few years ago and it has a lovely beach. Yes it can be breezy.
Heard that they just had a refubishment. Rooms were good size and large bathrooms with double sinks etc.
I understand they have a largely Italian clientele now.
Thanks girl's for your replies.
All booked for the 11th from Manchester.
Got the confirmation and the only drawback is that we have noticed that there are no transfers included!!!
Any info on getting to the hotel - time/cost etc will be greatly appreciated.
I went to CDG a few years ago taking my then 79yr old Mum to eurodisney ( she loved it) - Emirates is our airline of choice.
Thanks for all the info - I have taken note of everything and if I have anyother questions I will pop back on here.
Its on the east coast so a straight drive up, maybe just under an hour, maybe less.
You could try prebooking return transfers.
Is a reputable company.
Or just pick one up at the airport.
Soy Jan, brain out of gear again :)
Thanks Bronia - your brain sounds like mine - in need of a Mauritian holiday lol
Thanks for the taxi info, think we will pick one up at the airport and agree a price as Mazza suggested.
Ohh by the way - I think my cat is sat in your pic - Tom, 16 yr old black male lol
