My family and I (my parents, sister and brother, spouses and kids) have been to Mauritius 3 times and have stayed at Sugar Beach 2 out of the 3 times and loved it. However for our trip this year we would like to try something new. I know that the new hotel Long Beach (which is part of the same group) will be opening in April 2011. We would like to go there at the end of April but are nervous about the weather on that side of the island as well as if there will be lots of teething problems as it would have just opened. We have 8 kids with us ranging from 6 months to 14 years so we also need good baby sitters and entertainment for them. Can anyone give me insight into this hotel and the beach it has?
