This was our 7th visit to this resort. We had enjoyed all our previous visits and were slightly concerned as to whether the rebranding of the hotel might have been detrimental, but we were not disappointed.
The interior is lightened overall and the introduction of Cafe Lux where the reception used to be is a big improvement and also reception now being a little more private is a good feature.
The refurbished rooms are lovely - the decor and furnishings previously were rather dark and needed updating. The bed and linen was brilliant and we loved the updated bathroom with the oval bathtub and great shower. One good feature that obviously is unchanged is the good size of the rooms and bathrooms.
The restaurants and food remain very good. As previous, our favourite is Indochine for fine dining, although as mentioned by another guest there at the same time as us, children and babies should not really be allowed in this restaurant. Having said this we had a special menu cooked for my husband there on three evenings, as he cannot eat spicy food, arranged by Roopesh, which was great. They really went out of their way to make it special each time.
We also enjoyed lunches and some dinners at The Beach restaurant, which is now larger and with a great menu and extremely well managed by Vick. "The Kitchen" buffet restaurant where you also have breakfast was good - sorry we don't like the new name - and perhaps the only criticism here is that the breakfasts do become rather "samey" after 14 days.
The all inclusive was a great plus as we had no worries about accumulating extra costs.
This is a fabulous resort in a great location - we have always liked the Mauritian thatched roofing and the great beach and pool.
However, the best feature of all remains the staff. All the staff are extremely helpful, always smiling, always address you by name and go out of their way to make your stay exceptional. They genuinely enjoy their work and there is a very good team spirit.
We would specially like to mention, Sheila (Guest Relations Manager) and Ravin (Restaurants Manager.)
