“A Diving Experience”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This was our second club med experience, last year going to Cherating in Malaysia. This was different in that it was smaller and focused on water sports. This is why we chose La Pointe in Mauritius. The first couple of days we did have a few problems with the GO's in the mini and teen club. They were disorganised and all over the place. We had to constantly find out where they were. The GO's Chris and Eric just did not seem interested in the kids at all. Versus Cherating Club Med where the GO's went out of their way to give the kids a good time. In the end the Chief of the resort changed the GO's and we had Antoine a french guy who looked after our kids. Antoine was fantastic. All in All however most staff were keen to ensure that we had a good time and in the end we accomplished what we set out to achieve and that was getting right into the water sports. The service was good and rooms clean. French was mainly spoken at the resort and sometimes this proved frustrating. I think it was good for our kids to get immersed into a different language and culture, maybe it will help with their languages at school. We would highly recommend going on one of the day trip to Blue Bay. The snorkelling was fantastic and gave you a different perspective on the whole Mauritius experience. If you are into food they did provide various different foods. I would rate the food above average with a better quality being provided at Cherating, Malaysia. We do like the Club Med experience and keen to explore the other Club Med experiences around the world. We would recommend this resort for those into diving, sailing and water skiing. There are plenty of activities at this resort for those energetic enough to get involved. I hope I have given a broad opinion on my experience at this resort, especially for the ozzies who are travelling a long way to get to this resort. Weather was windy the first three days but the last five days was perfect weather. Not humid at all. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We paid for the Deluxe Suite which gave us a balcony and our own private beach. I don't think s...

This was such a great family trip. Not knowing what to expect, especially with it being a family orientated resort...it was awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to travel with children, but would also like some quality time with their spouse. The planning was great...from the moment we landed up to the moment we got on the flight again. The staff were very helpful and did not mind to assist with anything, an example of this was with our room. We booked the suite on the 1st floor, as we have a toddler and I was scared he would walk out of the room and onto the beach...but upon entering our room we noticed it was a ground floor room. We asked front desk to please check for the 1st floor room and they constantly kept us updated and moved us as soon as a room became available. Everything was great about our stay, we had our couple time and could leave our little one in the capable hands of the baby club staff (such lovely people!!) without any concern. There is so much to do and if you only want to lounge around, that can also be done! The food is good and they also cater for babies/toddlers which was fantastic. We enjoyed the entertainment and also some lovely cocktails from the bar. I would recommend this resort to anyone planning a trip to Mauritius...

Room Tip: The suite is great when travelling with children, as it has loads of space for them to move about. I...

Many thanks for a fantastic time, I highly recommend this destination!
The facilities were excellent, food was great and the GO's and staff could not do enough for us. I must mention a few people who made our stay very special, namely, Tegan from Management, Duran (always willing to go the extra mile and has become a good friend), Sunil who prepared a great breakfast every morning with an everlasting smile!
All things said, I must compliment all the staff and thank them for making it a memorable stay, which I would like to repeat at some stage.

Regards

Troy

Decided on a short trip to Mauritius to miss some SA winter. Chose one of the specials sent out by travel agents, looked good, reasonable prices mainly because occupancies are low at this time and the Brazil swc may have taken some customers.

With this in mind I would expect good quality rooms with all amenities supplied and working fixtures and fittings.........but no............please see rest of review which I have posted privately.

The overall feeling my wife and I had was disappointment - the value for money expectation was not there.

We took this trip over Christmas as a family and it really was well worth it. There was loads of entertainment, awesome watersport and paragliding. We took trips on the glass bottom boat, went for Island tours on catamaran as well as enjoyed their lovely buffet and cocktail hour! Definitely worth the money and perfect for family holiday.

Room Tip: Sea facing is always best!

The hotel is situated on one of the prettiest beaches on the island. There is plenty to do from glass bottom boat rides to sailing to wake boarding and it was all included in our package. The food was really great and I'm a fussy eater so that's saying something. The only issue I had was the milk- I'm not sure if it was powdered milk or long life? All in all - We had a fabulous time at Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers and would highly recommend it. Thanks to Oliver and his team of GO's for such a great stay. Regards, Jane & Mark
