“Villa Catherine the perfect holiday let”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A car is essential. Nice pool excellent security and a very helpful and caring property manager. Bel Mare is not the most modern or exciting village in Mauritius but the villa is 10 minutes drive from Centre de Flacq which has three super markets.

“Brilliant Family Holiday Villa”
Reviewed 25 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This villa was excellent if your just 2 of you or with the family. The Villa is well maintained with everything you would have at home and the swimming pool and garden is kept beautiful and just the right size. If you’re looking for tranquillity and relaxation at home then this is the place. It's home from home and the meet and great is excellent, very friendly and helpful with everything including if you are lazy like myself and want the Villa cleaned, your Laundry done etc this is at an extra charge but reasonable prices.
I would recommend a car though as the Villa is not within walking distance from main shops or beach fronts. Travelling around is great as there is lots to see. If your into Golf there are some beautiful courses. Our favourite was the Le Touessrok which is the Golf Course that Bernhard Langer’s designed. It is on its own little Island and prices are much cheaper than other Golf Courses around the Island.

Management Response
13 Apr 2013
Whilst there are a few comments within the review which are appropriate, we find certain remarks to be untrue and grossly exaggerated.

The kitchen is fully equipped together with a full complement of crockery and cutlery, all of which is to European standard.

All the rooms in the Villa including the kitchen have an electronic ultrasonic device which deals with any unwelcome bugs within the Villa. These devices are continuously switched on, thereby providing a "bug free" environment for guests to enjoy.

Mauritius is, after all, a tropical island!
Terms and Conditions categorically state that entry to the Villa must be made available either by prior arrangements with the guests or immediately in the event of an emergency. Unfortunately in this instance, for the whole 7 weeks period our representative/maintenance personnel were denied access to carry out any remedial works including the water pressure and rectifying any cleaning issues.

The pool is regularly maintained, and the Ph testing is carried out twice weekly. Any maintenance to the swimming pool and Ph sampling/testing are carried out early morning or late evenings when the facility is unlikely to be in use.

Also the guests in this instance, left the air conditioning units switched on continuously for their whole 7 week duration, showing little respect for the running costs.

These guests still scored their stay at Villa Catherine 3 out of 5, despite their comments.
