“Best Hotel Experience”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

I've stayed at this hotel for business, the service was impeccable, and the food was exotic and it was neat, clean, organized, and they had a lot of entertainment. Definitely a place to be when visiting Mauritius.

The hotel and the staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you. They were very welcoming, friendly and on hand to offer fantastic service.

The many staff that we met were very personable and knew your name fairly quickly. The staff were always interested in how you were doing and managers asked for feedback on a regular basis of how they could improve the services.

Overall fantastic.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean excellent

We arrived on the 17th October for 13 nights. It was my 50th birthday and wanted a special, idiotic holiday. We weren't disappointed. I have to say first and foremost the staff are the best thing about this hotel. They are friendly and warm and we struck up a real friendship with them. The family room (2 bedrooms) was fab with a central egg shaped bath and separate walk in shower. The food was excellent and although a buffet style in Senso restaurant you had the option of booking three other restaurants (Veda-indian, Noble house- thai and Segala- seafood, when ever you wanted. We would recommend going all inclusive as it was great value for money. My daughter and I used the gym most days and there was always an instructor there to give advise and give us exercises if needed. There is also a lovely spa there and whilst waiting for a massage we were able to use the steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Most nights there is entertainment put on from African dance to belly dancing. Two evenings a full banquet is laid out on the beach nothing quite like eating with your toes in the sand. We would definitely revisit this lovely hotel again.

My names Vicraj Singh, my wife and I have just returned from one weeks holiday at the Intercontinental. From the moment of arrival to the moment of departure we were treated like celebrities, the staff to management were magnificent, the service provided was exceptional, all our requests and needs were seen to , with a smile and politeness. The staff knew our preferences , where we liked to be seated, what drinks we liked , our room number and names, it was what made one feel so important. The name Intercontinental speaks for itself, we were spoilt for choice with the restaurants and the various dishes that were available, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner, all guests needs as far as food and beverages were concerned was available, immaterial of the country of origination. The facilities provided are on par with or even better than other five star hotels, very relaxing and comforting. Entertainment was diversified and catered for all different cultures and races. Overall an unforgettable holiday, would definitely return and recommend to others.Keep up the excellent service etc - BEST WISHES - Vicraj

Whenever we talk about a 5star hotel or resort we really have to think a lot of times about our pockets but this is not the case with InterContinental Resort Mauritius. This is a budget hotel with all the amenities and facilities giving you a true hospitality and will not disappoint you. Even the chefs and other staff are very friendly and they ask you about your requirements and likes before they do anything for you which i really liked about the resort. A must go in Mauritius.

We have just spent 6 days at this hotel and we had an absolutely fantastic time there. From the very special reception on arrival to the attention to detail throughout our stay we could not find fault with anything during our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and could not have done more to make our stay outstanding. We would like to make special mention of Herve who looked after us at the Coco Beach Bar. Nothing was too much trouble for him when it came to making us feel special and we would like to pay tribute to his professionalism and friendship. We would also like to mention Marc, who like Herve went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Our room was extremely comfortable, the food was outstanding with a wide variety of choice. Being able to use the other restaurants was a dining experience, even the set menus. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and we look forward to returning in the future,.

Room Tip: We had an executive deluxe room, which was excellent.
