My sister and I stayed here in April for a few days and all I can say is WOW! The room and staff (not to mention the beauty of Mauritius itself) exceeded our expectations and we had a fantastic vacation because of that.
Patrick - the manager - was the perfect hostess and wanted to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Because we are about a 15 minute walk to the beach/restaurants he was MORE THAN HAPPY to accommodate us with his shuttle to wherever we wanted to go. He would arrange to pick us up either by us calling him or by meeting him at a certain spot at a time we specified. My sister and I did the walk down to the water, which was nice because you see more of Mauritius and wasn't too long of a walk. We also used his shuttle to the beach which is good for getting there fast.
The view is amazing at this hotel, the breakfast so peaceful and tropical, and the pool at our disposal to use if we so desired. To wake up every morning and step on the balcony and hear many, many birds chirping, the breeze swaying the tree leaves, and Patrick cooking food downstairs on the patio area was the perfect start of every day. Breakfast had variations every morning and was just perfect with my cup of tea (or coffee if desired).
The room has a little kitchenette with a fridge, stovetop, sink, but we really only used the fridge for leftovers/water.
As far as restaurants go the shuttle is really the only way to get to them quickly. We also visited the Safari Adventures park and definitely recommend people visiting that park. Patrick was more than happy dropping us off when it opened and picking us up later. We even decided to stay longer than planned and the park staff were happy to call our hotel driver to schedule a later pickup for us.
We had heard that taxis try to over charge you at the airport so either arrange with patrick for a pickup and drop off or haggle them down. We haggled were able to get a Taxi for 30 euros instead of the 50 they were insisting we pay.
An example of just how personal and amazing Patrick is was one day I felt sick so we called and asked him to pick us up and on the drive back he stopped and bought a coconut and pineapple fruits at a stand for each of us and refused to be reimbursed. Top notch care that can only be found at smaller scale hotels such as this one.
Don't forget to go to the rooftop at sunset or sunrise and get a even better view of the beautiful Mauritius island.
