“Fabulous value for money family holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Belle Mare Plage. The hotel is excellent with great staff, great food and excellent value for money facilities. We stayed in a junior suite which was well furnished with nice balcony and views out to sea and accomodated 2 adults and one child comfortably. The flights with Air Mauritius enabled us to enjoy a full 14 days as they were overnight flights. Air mauritius is OK although a little cramped in economy for the 12 hour flight. But the service and in flight entertainment was good. Belle Mare Plage is about 1 hour from the airport and the coastal road gives a great view of the sea. The hotel has plenty to offer we took advantage of the free golf on both the Legends course and the Links (needed to pay 1300MUR for buggy hire on The Legends course) But the service again from the staff at the courses was excellent. Very nice views from both the club houses over the course, watch out for the deer on the Legends course fantastic to see. The courses are quite challenging for mid range handicap players so you need to take plenty of balls if your not straight given the landscape and water. But this must be common as there are plenty of good quality second hand balls to purchase from the stewards.
During our stay we used the gym which was of a good qaulity, we learnt to waterski which is free with staff who were both patient and great at teaching complete beginners. There are other water based activities which are free pedalos, kyaks, snorkeling on the reef and galss bottom boat rides fro those who dont want to get into the water. the pool areas and beaches are well maintained again with very attentive staff on hand for drinks, towells etc. Also available good tennis facility.
Other activities we would recommend include the undersea walk and the horse trecking in L'Etolie which included a fab lunch in a lovely setting.
We used the Susheido spa which was wonderful with comparative prices to UK but offers fantastic ambience and a high quality spa experience.
Food each night was varied enough to not become monotimous. Also other restuarants to visit within the hotel including a great Indain night in the Deer Hunter resturant where the sound of the frogs is quite amazing. Also lovely Lobster evening at Spagglia, pricey but very good.
Finally the weather I was nervous about the weather not being warm enough in July, and whilst there were days where it was cloudy and rained there were hot days and the mix enabled us to take advatnage of all there is to do and see without feeling drained. So if you are looking for a relaxing varied break in a beautiful setting with great service and value for money this is the place to go. It is evdient from the many people who return year after year, I think it would not be possible to find a 5 star hotel in Europe in July with so much on offer as part of the package for the same price. We will be visiting again.

Room Tip: Third floor room with views of the sea are very tanquil and relaxing.

Our family stayed at the Belle Mare Plage the first 2 weeks of July. We started our holiday a bit disappointed due to the long wait we had to get checked in however we were shown straight to our inter-connecting rooms and advised that we were on the 'drinks package' which was a bottle of wine, bottle of water, soft drinks for the children and tea or coffee with our evening meal. This turned out to be fantastic.

Our prestige rooms were clean and functional however our ground floor location with amazing sea views was brilliant. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of free activities such as water skiing, table tennis, snorkeling and spa. My daughter and I had treatment at the Shisedo which was expensive but very professional. My husband and son hit the golf courses which they really enjoyed. A negative for us was that it was very resort based and to leave the hotel you had to get a taxi or go on an organised trip. We took a taxi to Central Flacq where there is a market and 'spar'!! to get supplies such as snacks and then to Belle Mare to get souvenirs. The taxi driver waited for us in each town and for 2 hours it cost us 1000 rupees. We also did an organised trip to the capital Port Louis. The was good because we learned a lot about the Island however it did include a stop at a duty free shop where there was the hard sell to buy goods and carpets!!

The food at the Hotel is, in our opinion, brilliant. We were half board and although this is buffet style it certainly didn't feel like that as many of the dishes were cooked to order. The staff cooking the eggs in the morning and the pasta in the evening were fantastic. The best poached eggs and carbonara I have had!! We also ate at the Deer Hunter were on certain nights they catered for us half boarders. The service was excellent and the food matched, particularly the Indian night.

What I would say to the BMP management is that they have a very good hotel and in many ways it certainly is, in our opinion, 5 star. However having been to Dubai (and speaking to other guests who have also been to Dubai) there is something missing that would make it an excellent hotel which you get in Dubai. Having said that we had a brilliant holiday which we thoroughly enjoyed and have lots of happy memories to keep us going through the British summer.

Room Tip: Ground floor.

To say Mauritius is not beautiful would be bad, the island is gorgeous for a resort island, but if you are from North America, your money is better spent in Jamaica or the Caribbean islands...they are just as beautiful and the price you pay will get you more in NA.

The hotel is older but well maintained, very clean and people are really friendly. The food is awesome, the drinks are super expensive, we got there literally the day before high season, so one night we had a buy one get one free and the next "poof" it was gone, and drinks were about $15 each. We asked a cabbie to take us to town, loaded up on Heineken and wine and took it to our room.

As I said, food is great, we went half board and it was worth it, but would not do it again. We visited the entire southern coast, lots of little touristy things, but nothing wow. The only highlight, my husband is Hindu and there is a beautiful temple shrine for Shiva...beautiful and very peaceful and full of monkeys.

Other than that, we did the Viki tour, awesome experience, a whole day of ocean and island traveling with awesome food and great guides, definitely check it out! They come by the beach or, check them on tripadvisor and email them, really good service.

Room Tip: Try to get a second floor room, really nice views

We thank you for the time dedicated to do this review. We may notice that you have possibly come from very far away and have stayed with us prior to the high season thus are glad to know that you still have our resort in memory.

Indeed Constance Belle Mare Plage is one of the flagship names of Mauritius tourism and hospitality and the first resort of Constance Hotels, known for its location, beach, golf, culinary experience and service.

Despite the opinion on the pricing of our resort services, we are glad that you had a great stay. In order to keep our status of “good value for money” we are constantly bench marking and maintaining our prices with similar resorts in Mauritius.

We thank you once again for having chosen us and Mauritius for your holidays and hope to be able to welcome you next time perhaps in beautiful Seychelles or Maldives.

It indeed brings us smile to the face to see that you have thoroughly enjoed your stay with us, starting with good fishing which we believe was the main reason of your short holiday.

It is great to know however that besides fishing you were as well very pleased with accomodation in one of our private hideaway villas, our food, the service of the team and especially of the Recreation one.

We thank you again for this nice review and hope to be able to welcome you back for another fishing holiday in the nearby future.

We stayed at the Belle Mare Plage for 11nights 28th June-9thJuly in a sea facing suite. The offer was excellent value for money, golf and dine. You can play at 2 courses Links and Legends both are free, you just pay 1,300ruppes for a buggey at Legends. Both courses are very good. Our suite was lovely on the 3rd floor block 800, plenty of space and a very big veranda. The room also had tea and coffee facilities. There were buggys to transfer you back and forward to reception.
The dine package allowed you to eat in 2 restaurants Citronellis buffet with live cooking stations ,and .plenty of choice, the Deer hunter was a set menu or A la carte the service and the setting is fantastic. You get a half bottle of wine per person, bottle of water, tea or coffee, and a soft drink for my son.
The beach was lovely with a good choice of water sports, which my son loved.
The hotel had a lovely water theme which went through the resort and was kept very clean. There was entertainment on every night in the cocktail bar which was good; the drinks were ok 160 rupees for a beer, 80 for a soft drink.
I feel the management need to address a few issues, the price of food at lunch time is very expensive which a lot of people commented on. We only ate on the last day as we had no other choice as we were leaving at night. If they did a more reasonable price list more people would eat.900ruppes for a Panini (£19) the cheapest burger was 690(£15).Also I feel citronellis restaurant needs more supervision .We found a lovely waitress called Davina who was excellent at her job, but the staff get moved around each night so you don’t know where they are working in the restaurant. Overall the majority of staff are excellent, but there are some who are just not interested which does not leave a good impression.
We went for my husbands 50th birthday it was also our 28th wedding anniversary. When we checked in we were told we would get a cake which would have been nice but we never got one.
We found Mauritius overall expensive, but still had a very good holiday and met some lovely people.
The belle mare plage is a fantastic resort and would definitely recommend it despite my little niggles.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and stay in a beach front suite.

Above all allow me to thank you for having chosen us for your family holiday and though with some delay, congratulate on anniversary and birthday. We are pleased to learn that you have enjoyed your stay with us and would gladly recommend it .

We have noticed that you are one of our guests passionate about golf as have played on both of our courses – indeed, we have unique offer where both courses are free of charge for our guests and golf cars as well on one of them. Deer Hunter , restaurant which you have liked so much with its great green setting, is situated right next to the Legend’s.

It is as well pleasure to know that you have liked the bright look and space of our Junior Suites, the water features placed all around the property and our natural part – the beautiful beach (belle mare).

We thank you on the other side as well for the inputs given. Our prices are constantly being bench marked against similar hotels in Mauritius and are competitive, however your comment will be taken into consideration. Your lovely compliment for Davina will be passed on, but as well the need for slightly more supervision of few other team members too. Our customers eyes and are valuable to us as see our service from different point of view.

Once again, thank you for the positive feedback and we sincerely hope to be able to welcome you back when in need of some more golf and your own relax time.

Yours sincerely

We first went to The Belle Mare Plage to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and have been returning each year since. The Belle Mare Plage sits in a beautiful bay excellent for the many water sports offered at the hotel. The Jr Suites are spacious, comfortable and stylish with an excellent bathroom/dressing room -- my favourite part is the large balcony with its comfortable sofa and chairs. The perfect place to relax with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Both golf courses are excellent and the staff knowledgeable and friendly- be sure to enter the weekly tournaments great fun and really sociable. This year’s Golf and Dine package was excellent and really encouraged you to linger after golf and over an excellent lunch or dinner. For us the very best place to dine is The Deer Hunter restaurant. The food ranges from excellent to spectacular and the half board menu really encourages you to try different foods. I cannot praise all the staff at the Deer Hunter highly enough. Each year we are welcomed back and made to feel very special particularly on our anniversary when a exceptional meal, wines and cake were created for us. I could reiterate all that previous guest have said in praise of The Belle Mare Plage its facilities and excellent management and staff but I think It says everything that we have already made our reservations for next May and our 45th anniversary.

It is the loyalty of our guests and seeing them returning over years, or reading such inspiring comments as yours, that is one of the best rewards for our team.

After several visits, you indeed know many of our team members, the slopes on our beautiful green courses and as well how relaxing it can be to sit at the terrace with glass of vine, as you suggest, or perhaps a book, and unwind with the sea view.

The Deer Hunter team – waiters and chefs preparing the food that you enjoy so much, will be passed on your kind feedback. We are pleased to know that you have appreciated the special summer drink package we have implemented this season.

We can not thank you enough as well for such nice compliments and are looking forward to welcome you back next May for your next anniversary, more golf and more quiet moments with the Indian Ocean view.

Yours sincerely

We visited the resort end May beginning of June and stayed for 10 nights. Superb hotel. Warm welcome. Very nice room, always well cleaned, magnificent view on the pool and the ocean, really a mgnificent surprise , although we had booked a standard 'superior room'. Very nice furniture in the room and also on the terrace (!). It is an overall characteristic that this hotel has very often clearly something more to offer, than one generally expects. Staff is extremely helpfull. Magnificent 2 km private beach, unique view, beach service perfect, waterline cleaned every evening for seaweeds. Great sports offer, laser sailing, kayak, catamaran, surfing, FOR FREE, always available. Small boat transfert to very beautifull snorkling spot, once again for free, twice a day ! Nice tennis courts and surprising mini golf.2 18 holes beyond imagination. We visited the SPA and gym almost daily. Again superb service , TV screens available, and personal trainers advising you on the very modern fitness instruments. We always ate in the buffet restuarant and were incredibly surprised by the Golf and Dine arrangement which was included in our stay (again much more that I had expected : each evening for 2 pax a bottle of wine, to be choosen from the wine list, a bottle of mineral water and a coffee : unbelievable!). They have a sister hotel some 15 km called Prince Maurice, and it is also free to visit and shuttleservice is available. A superb experience, superb hotel, superb service !

Room Tip: Top floor rooms : better view and less noice !
