This hotel is stunning. The layout and set-up really are awesome. Perhaps this is because it has all been newly rebuilt, but it just works.
A few of the many highlights: the beds are comfy, the bathrooms are beautiful, the gardens are impeccable, the pools are stunning and the stretch of beach is clean and (despite the coral, which makes it hard to walk on for little feet,) simply endless. Some of the restaurants are incredible and well worth the extra calories! The staff are generally very helpful and friendly, despite a language barrier at times.
A few cons: the restaurants fill up quickly, so it is advisable to book as early as possible. The floor boards around the pool and on the walkways are very slippery when it rains; they havent been sawn correctly for inclement weather. Swimming at the beach is really limited to a small area and there are far too many boats whizzing by. The housekeeping is not always consistent and predictable, on some days it was done early and thoroughly, on others, it was done quite late in the day and very minimally.
Every one will tell you that Mauritius can be very pricy and we found this to be the case, but we took some of our own hard tack from duty free and bought mixers (and bottled water) from the local supermarket which is literally down the road (walking distance).
Le Deck - the supposed seafood specialist among the six restaurants at TAB was very disappointing and overpriced. We had the 'chefs special seafood platter' and it was overcooked, minimalist and massively overpriced at around USD100.
La Carvelle was amazing and when we had dinner there a-la carte, as well as lunch there a-la carte, we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. My husband and I ate Creole seafood dishes for lunch and they were outstanding. the dinner menu held real gems of Duck L'Orange and Prawns with Ravioli that were outstanding.The Pizzas are good as well. Salads quite leafy though. And the best spot for breakfast.
L'Oasis was pretty good, but quite standard. Good breakfast there though and amazing staff.
Blue Ginger was an amazing Thai food experience.
Mahiya was outstanding. The manager, Leckraj, went out of his way to make it an incredible experience for us; even arranging special bindis for the ladies. The food was fragrant and spicy but really not hot. Delicious and the best culinary experience at the hotel.
Il Corallo was also pretty amazing. Here, the manager, Anwar (I think?) was also exceptionally trained and made our evening one we will not easily forget. The menu was not predictably or traditionally Italian, but what we ate was scrumptious.
The lunch time vendors on the golf carts also delivered simple, good food, along the beach. Burgers were particularly tasty.
The Spa was really beautiful, although it was very full and it was difficult to make a booking. I would suggest that they extend the hours. The beauticians were polite and well trained.
the Kids club offered a lovely escape to my eldest daughter, who was almost three. She went there with a nanny - who was incredible. Her name was Nazima. It was great to have somewhere to send her when the rain set in, which is sadly what happened for two days.
We loved the boat excursion along the coast but due to the weather couldn't explore the reefs at all.
Overall, we had a wonderful trip. We stayed in a Family suite and loved the space for our children (three years and ten months). Our colleagues stayed in a beach front suite with a pool and I am glad we were tucked away from the beach front. I felt the children were safer without a pool on our doorstep (as they cant yet swim) and also from prying eyes who can see into most of the beach front suites, although they are beautiful and very luxurious.
