Silver Beach Or Le Tropical ?

Thinking of booking Maurituis for April 2012, can anyone advise me which has the best Beach ?

Love to Dive and Snorkel so also best for Snorkeling and a Hotel with a Dive Centre ?

Any other tips would be great.

Thanks :-))

Beach in front of Le Tropical is not great - although there is a very nice one 5 mins walk away. The big plus about Le Tropical (apart from the lovely staff) is the free boat service to Isle des Cerfs - and the free snorkel boat that you can book to go out on. A friend stayed at Silver Beach and said that hotel was very nice - but didn't have the add-ons of Le Tropical.

Hi JaneH1954

Thanks for your message. We have now booked The Heritage Awali Golf and Spa Resort for next April.

Really wanted a Hotel with a nice Beach.

Many thanks

So pleased to see that Bronia & Preston are still giving good well informed advice regarding Mauritius, as I have not been on TA for a while it,s great that they are still there to help

Best wishes

Hi Clurina/Claire

We decided against Silver Beach and got a good deal for Heritage Awali, so im hoping Snorkelling/Diving will be good there.

Thanks :-))

We found Le Tropical very dissappointing due to it not having a beach! Plus, the pool was tiny. They did offer free trips to Ile aux Cerfs - but having a hotel on a nice beach is what I look for from now on.
