“A Very Special Hotel With The Best Staff Ever”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

This was our second stay at The Residence Mauritius and it was, as ever, fantastic. We got married there just over 2 years ago and the place was perfect then as well.

As covered by many other reviewers, this hotel is elegant and classy. The staff are warm, friendly, approachable and have unbelievable memories too.

We entered the hotel armed with our not-so-little baby and the staff were unbelievable with him. For us, staying here is very much like coming home to family and that really is the best way of explaining the hotel.

The hotel is definitely NOT expensive compared to other 5-star hotels, and The Residence most definitely is worthy of being a 5-star hotel, as opposed to those hotels who just aim to be 5-star based on their facilities.

The lovely reviewer who said that starters cost £40 upwards is talking utter nonsense. The food at lunchtime is of excellent quality and the service by staff outstanding.

The pool is always clean, the beach is beautiful and the beach sellers are very friendly and courteous.

There's not too much else to say about The Residence other than it is a very special place.

The staff make this place truly exceptional and I would definitely recommend the Residence in Mauritius.

I went with my family in September a few years back and it was a wonderful experience. I saw other hotels in Mauritius and this was the best.
Our rooms were extremely nice with a superb sea view in one tower. All the small details were taken care of and the maid was extremly helpful. The two rooms were next to each other which is great when you are a family.
The beach is amazing, white sand and you can always find a place with not many people. A boat took us for free to the barrier reef to snorkel and it was great.
All the staff was very helpful and we really enjoyed our time there.

Room Tip: Request a room with sea view.

Very nice hotel, perfectly located on the beach. Food outlets are nice, food is excellent. The "people" are truly amazing, genuine warmth and smile.

Room Tip: Sea views are a must

Long flight and arrived exhausted but were welcomed into paradise with a beautiful cocktail and assigned our own personal "butler"...a lovely touch, not our very own butler, of course, but if we wanted room service it was the same charming chap who came. Its a truly beautiful hotel with some fabulous restaurants...smart but discreet and not too "showy". We found the beach too windy so stayed by the pool instead. Mauritius is the most beautiful island and our highlight was going inland for a quad biking trip (with a guide).....I will never forget the ylang ylang flowers on the trees and the glorious mountainous scenery. Will definitely go back.

We came to Mauritius on the back of a blissful week in South Africa, so it was always going to be hard to match up! However, our main problem with The Residence was the amount of children there - SO many. We had imagined it would be more suitable for couples, but it really isn't, so if it's your honeymoon then I would recommend looking elsewhere.
However - we had a lovely stay, I have never known a place to be more immaculately kept - it was simply beautiful, not a fault could be found. The food was delicious - the buffet nights are not to be missed, absolutely fantastic food. The staff were very friendly and helpful too.
It is expensive, but we went prepared for this and didn't mind the heavily over-priced cocktails and wine too much - we also went to a shop just a few minutes walk down the road to get some booze for the room! I would recommend paying as you go along so as not to have too much of a shock at the end of your holiday!
All in all, the room was lovely, the beach beautiful - and the snorkelling out of this world! I would recommend, but be prepared for expense and kids!

Been twice and each time has been a wonderful experience, one a romantic get away, the next a family holiday. Will definitely come back and can't recommend highly enough. Get a sea view on the upper levels and make full use of the wonderful facilities. Better than many of the more expensive hotels on the island. Understated elegance and well positioned.

Room Tip: Upper levels in the main building excellent.
