I have been lucky enough to be working in Mauritius for 2 years. As a golfer, I have stayed in many hotels and villas with golf courses all over the island. This was our first trip to Lakaz behind one of my favourite- restaurants- Chamarel restaurant. We had been recommended by some close friends. We treated ourselves to a suite- which was well worth it, your own private pool. The accommodation and the location is stunning, so peaceful, so relaxing, a great feeling of space and privacy.
However we would not return and would not recommend further simply due to the service and the food. There was no welcome, we were given the Lakaz information to read, usually someone would talk you through how the place worked, where things are, timings etc. We stayed 2 nights and our package included dinner and breakfast.
As a couple of foodies both dinners were disappointing, - chicken sausages in the soup, tinned mushrooms in the main, we were asked how we would like our tuna, "rare", it came well done. We decided to give up and move to a la carte menu at extra cost, our plates were taken away, with no question as to why. We enjoy having a little banter with our waiter/waitress but they were not friendly. You got the feeling they did not enjoy their job and we were an inconvenience. When settling the bill they were going through the routine and were not genuinely interested in our feedback.
The location is breath taking but they need to up their game with the service and the food.
