Exceptional 10.0
A very good and self contained resort hotel. Hotel provide free of charge sea activities like snorkeling, coral watching, kayak etc. The swimming pool is a heated pool and it is so nice to be in the pool. Suana, Steam Bath and Jacuzzi are also nice. They have sandy beach but the sea is with a lot of stones. Every Tuesday they have IHG Members’ cocktails party at 6pm. Wednesday night has show. So overall is a nice stay.
Hs, my2 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Amazing for kids/ families
Amazing resort, with some evening event almost everyday, and plentry of free sports and water activities for kids. Although there was some bitter experience, as our room’s lock was faulty, and we had to wait for nearly two hours, and call them repeatedly to mend it. The beach is nice, and connected with adjacent Westin hotel’s beach. Makes a wonderful morning stroll.

Good choice in Mauritius
Many free water sports activities offered. And overall the staff are friendly and nice. The location is not very easy to find that we would suggest to drive there in day time. The hotel is not new at all but deemed comfortable and clean.
